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.

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 GE XL1800 does not heat. We didn't have any odd noise to go with it. Just stopped heating. Everything else is fine with it. Could it be the diode, capacitor or magnetron. GE wanted $200 to fix the...

I gather that GE would replace the part under warranty but you need to pay labor? $200 to replace a magnetron seems way out of line just for labor.

The magnetron is the most likely part to cause your symptom. Capacitors and diodes usually fail by shorting, and cause the oven to make loud humming noises or blow the fuse. But the trouble might also be due to the control circuit board, either bad parts or solder connections.

Unless you have the proper tools and experience, trying to diagnose where the trouble is can be very hazardous. There are lethal voltages present with the cover off and the oven operating. You should leave the repair to a professional. An independent shop might be able to diagnose the problem and give you an estimate for a lower charge, and then you could decide whether to repair or replace.

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.

Weather King 10AJA6001AH Air Conditioner with bad compressor

If it is five years old it is either right in or out of warranty a service tech can determine this through the serial number. If not the unit is only a little bit more to replace than the compressor. A replacement compressor is only warrantied for one year verses a unit replacement with five years on the compressor and one year parts and labor.

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.
