Question about GE Refrigerators
It sounds like a bad start
switch - relay- (on the side of the compressor) or compressor itself. When the compressor
is pulling too many amps or the compressor is overheating it goes off. if the compressor is
not even running then its probably not overheating.
So either the compressor is pulling too many amps (bad compressor) or the start switch is bad and cannot handle the amps required to start the compressor.
There is sometimes a thermal over load that senses heat beside the relay, it can be bad or weak usually the start relay and capacitor and overload are changed as a group to preclude any possibility that they are at fault before the compressor is changed. Capacitors can be tested with a meter, overloads visually inspected and relays either work and draw amps or stick and blow out the start cap.
By the way, If compressor is changed be sure a new drier is installed and new freon and new start components.
