Make sure it's not your start relay thats attached to the compressor.

Well if you are extremely handy you can purchase a new compressor and install it yourself.

This morning, my Frigidaire FFHS2322MS refrigerator had a pond of water in front, the compressor was clearly off and the lights inside were on. No error code of the displays, they were just bla


Have a technician test the start capacitor on the compressor. When they go bad the motor will draw excessive current which trips the thermal overload switch on the compressor. It usually resets itself once the compressor case has cooled down.

Refrigerator s not cold


My guess is that the compressor is running all the time. See if the air is blowing through out the unit from the ductwork, if not the fan could be seizing up and running slowly. Though possibly unlikely the defrost may not be working causing an ice build up around the coils. If that's the case, you could have a bad defrost heater.

I have a samsung 1 year old fridge that wont get cold at all. the compressor, evap and condensor fans all run and i installed a schrader valve on low side to try to vacuum and charge with no luck. it


Compressor should rapidly bring pressure down from standing pressure to running pressure when switched on. If no change, compressor not pumping. Make sure the line tap valve isn't leaking, and the gas you used was correctly charged.

My Amana 26 cu ft side by side quit cooling entirely in the freezer and the refrigerator. Is it worth it to get a repairman or should we just get a new frig. This one is 6 years old


I suggest get help with repairman.6 year old is not very old.Refrigerators have life more then 8 to 10 years.The problem can be temperature not set properly or any of fridge or freezer door not closed properly and cool air is getting leaked out. These are basic possibilities which first need to be checked. But if these possibilities are checked ok and still the problem is same, then its weak compressor issue.

My refrigerator stopped cooling/freezing.


Hi,
You can start with replacing the start capacitor and relay to see if the compressor will run again, but you have about a 50 -50 chance that the compressor has gone bad and will need to be replaced....

JBR2086HES - Jenn-Air


If it was buzzing then click, the click would mean that the thermal overload has activated. This would happen if the compressor is drawing high amperage due to a breakdown of insulation on one of the starter or run windings. What he says is very possible.
