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.

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,

I recently bought a used RV Carrier AC unit for my older camper. After installing the ac will work for about ten minutes before the breaker trips. If I reset the breaker the problem will repeat itself. ...

It sounds like the compressor is opening a thermal overload which is shutting the unit off. When the compressor cools down the switch resets and the process repeats itself. In the end it sounds like the system has a leak and is therefore low on Freon. This will cause the compressor to overheat and open the thermal overload. The freon cools the compressor windings and if it is low they will not be cooled sufficiently and hence the opening of the overload, which is a bi-metal sensitive to heat/cold.

If this has helped you please take the time to give me a rating on

Haier Mini spilt HSU18VC7 compressor runs for 5 minutes then stop 3 minutes then run another 5 minutes and so on.

This is called short cycling. It sounds like the compressor is getting hot and opening a bi-metal overload, which shuts the compressor off. The compressor cools, because it is not running and the bi-metal contacts close allowing the compressor to start again. This will repeat itself and is usually due to low refrigerant, which usually means there is a leak in the normally sealed refrigerant lines. The refrigerant cools the compressor windings and if it is low it cannot do that, hence the shutting off of teh compressor, cooling down process and restarting of your compressor. Short cycling will ultimately ruin the compressor.

If this has helped you please give me a rating worthy of my diagnosis.

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

Haier HDN655E unit runs but compressor won't kick in

use a jumper cord and go directly to the compressor to see if it will run. if it don't run, open up the motor box and see if there is a klixon overload inside. this should be normally closed. if it isn't replace it. the klixon is a thermal overload cutout. it usually trips because of high winding temperatures and protects the motor inside. the compressor is a hermetically sealed unit. no, or little freon will cause the motor to overheat.
