GE Side by Side - Compressor is bad.

If this is not covered under warranty - what should we expect as a price for the part and labor (ball park).
Thank you.

Re: GE Side by Side - Compressor is bad.

If your compressor is bad, you can expect to spend around $300.00 Depending on the replacement compressor type and the service persons charges. Normally a new compressor cost around $150.00 Sea Breeze

Compressor not running on GE Adora refrigerator. Temperatures rising in frig and freezer. Replace mother board or call GE technician. Not under warranty.

Best thing to do with a compressor that is not running is to check/replace the starting capacitor /relay. That is often the culprit. If that part is good, check to see that power is reaching the compressor. If not, you need to examine the self defrosting timer circuit, and thermostat for proper operation.

Compressors usually have a five year warranty but the labor to replace is not covered.

My Frigidaire #LSR7333PQ has had two compressor failures in 3 yrs

Compressors fail due to:
bad capacitors.
bad start relay.
low voltage.
refrigerant leaks.
refrigerant restrictions.
bad fan motor.
to name a few problems.
You should be under a 5 year seealed system prts and labor warranty.
Call him back out.

Ge side by side fridge makes loud thud sound...starting/stoping?

I am not sure when yours is making the noise, but I have a GE side by side and mine would make a similar noise when the compressor shut off. Check your warranty paperwork, I think GE has a warranty on the compressor for 5 years. It sounds like your compressor is going bad. If its in warranty, remember " the squeaky wheel gets the oil" complain until they fix it.
Sometimes when the repairman is there, it takes a little pushing to get them going in the right direction and to acknowledge compressor problems. Mine has a new compressor and runs like a champ.

Freezer Compressor Leaks Oil and Stopped Working

Hi I'm a subzero asc (Autorized service center) Subzero would not be responsible, your unit is out of there warranty. Now if the service company your dealing with is any good they can get a new compressor under a part warranty from there part distributor. Also in my many years working on subzero I have never seen oil dripping from the compressor unless you have a leak somewhere in the sealed system. Unfortunately the only thing you can do is see if your service provider will fix the unit. they will charge you labor if they get the part in warranty. It's possible that the service provider did not to the job properly but that's your word against there's. Good luck I hope everything works out for you..

Compressor under warranty, how much is the labor to fix it?

How old is it and is the repairman an indipendant company or the manufactuers repairman?

If its older than a year, and/or the repairman is indipendant then yes you probably will have to pay for labor.

Expect between 250 to 400 for the labor.

Some units have no labo warranty from the manufacturer.

If less than a year and the repairman is actually employed by AMANA directly and not a subcontractor or "authorized rapairman" then you may have a labor warranty.

Clicking noise-GSH22JFR/SH200106

If you have a 5 year warranty, you should not take anything apart and consult the place where you got the appliance.
They should be able to tell you exactly what is covered under warranty before they work on it.
