Interesting! I'm going to assume that this is a 110V unit running on an alternate power supply rather than regular AC. First: test the circuit with at least a 100 watt light bulb for a few minutes. If that looks okay (bulb at full brightness, not flickering), let's go on. What I also don't know is what 'overloads' you're speaking about. If it is the compressor (there is a light clicking sound periodically in or near the black compressor unit), the problem could be that it is overheating because something is blocking the airflow around the coils like an ant nest or debris. You've got to go in and clean them. Unplug unit, remove the contents and glass shelves, lay the unit on its side so you can see what's what in the back. Remove anything that looks like the manufacturer didn't put it in there. Look up into the area where the tubes go into the back panel area, too. Do not clean with water! If the unit is more than 5 years old, it probably should be scrapped. Note that older units have R-12 refrigerant which should be handled only by a qualified tech or recycler.

Refrigerator model bx21vl does not cool. I can hear the compressor kick in but it kicks out in 5-10 seconds. Then after about 102 to one minute it kicks in and out again,

Compressor is tripping on overload. You may just need the overload and relay replaced due to a bad compressor relay. The relay is what switches the compressor from it's start winding to it's run winding. If you pull the relay off, shake it to see if you hear lots of rattling inside, that's a sure sign of a bad relay. I would replace both of them.
Here is the overload relay to order.
Here is the start relay to order.

Admiral HMG61139 21.1 cu ft Side-by side refrigerator, not cooling. clicking sound every few minutes. (sounds similar to oven thermostat or relay coming on).


Thier is one of a couple things going on with your refrig.

The start relay on the compressor is bad so what your hearing is the overload thermostat tripping on and off and keeps trying to start the compressor

The fan motor by the compressor called the condenser fan motor is not running to cool the compressor so once and what you overload keep trying to start the compressor but its too hot to start

Finally the compressor is locked up and the overload still keeps trying to start it but its totally seazed and ain't going to run

I hope this helps you to determine what is wrong with your refrigerator,

My refrigator doesn't cool. the compressor clicks on and then goes off. what could be my problem?

most likely you have a bad start relay and overload on the compressor is tripping compressor out... i would try that first.... it is possible the compressor it self has failed but if you pull the relay off and it rattles inside most likely get a new one and your back up and running again...

Side by side refridge was dirty and I cleaned

I would pull the refrig out , and remove the back panel , covering the compressor and fan motor . Check to see if the fan is working . Fan not working , causes the divider panel , to get very hot . Also , fan not working , causes the compressor to over heat and cut off on the overload .

Refrig compressor only click but does not engage

Probably the start relay or a bad overload (check overload continuity with a volt/ohm meter) Maybe a broken or burnt off wire inside the compressor terminal cover. Possible, but unlikely compressor locked up. Unplug it before getting into the terminal cover.

Refrigerator was left open all night and it no longer works? What could be wrong

That unit uses a very small compressor. My guess would be, that since it was open all night, the unit tried to run with higher than normal freon pressures. This could cause the compressor to go out on it's protection device, normally called and overload. If you let the unit completely cool off, then try turning it back on, it might work. Repeated trips of the overload could cause the overload to go bad, not necessarily the compressor. It could also cause start components to go bad too. Such as the relay or capacitor. Good Luck and hope this helps

Overload relay

The relay mounts on the compressor and has a sliding start switch inside it. If you shake it you should feel the sliding switch within it. I fyou hear nothing or it sounds like a salt shake then it is bad. Newer relays have no way of telling other than you can visably see the relay is burned and can smell it as well. If your compressor is hot as the devil then the relay is stuck in start and both windings are going at once. This will cause the overload to trip and kill the compressor till it cools back down. otherwise the compressor will cool the box albeit intermittantly. If the contacts are disentergraded within the relay the compressor will not run.

It is the compressor that has failed. The hum is it trying to start and the following click is the overload protector opening. What is the temperature where the refrigerator is located? Allow the compressor to cool down before trying to restart it. If it still does not restart after it has cooled off it is done.

Frigerator runs constanly till compresser gets to hot

Sounds like it might be the thermostat
sensor bulb is defective see if you can
turn the refrigerator off with the thermostat
the defrost heater is supposed to heat up
enough to open the defrost thermostat

Make sure the defrost timer works to
turn on lhe heater & turn off the defrost tstat
turn the power off and check the tstat & defrost
heater for continuity check to see if tstat open
and closes when you turn the knob,

if you remove the tstat you can check the
bulb in ice water and warm water aborv 40
to see if tstat cycles on and off
