    Noise sounded like a relay clicking on and off every 3 mins. It wasn't a continuious noise. Thought computer board might be the problem. We have lost power serveral time this year. Its funny that my 17 year old 2ndary fridge has worked fine with no problems.

Hi, it sounds like your compressor has gone!!! this will be over 200 to replce according to model. somtimes it can be the relays on the compressor it self so it would be wise to call a local engineer to check before you change the compresor (this is the big black moter at the back base of the appliance

Compressor has locked up -- call maytag -- if its less than 5 yrs old it might still be under the sealed system warranty -- which means its fixed free of charge.

I have a Frigidaire freezer LFFU1424DW not freezing. Came home to melting ice and thawed food. I heard clicking noise like a fan but goes off after a few seconds. Help please.


first of all unplug that freezer and wait for 15 mins. move it five feet from the wall. after 15mins, plug it back and kick in compressor at the same time!!!! remember plug and kick at the same time. the ckicking noise come from the starting relais. this says that the compressor has a problem. If it doesn't work ; you will have to call a service person who will replace the compressor for you.

Fridge working off/on


If the noise was coming from the compressor when it was cutting off or starting, it was the internal mounts of the compressor and the compressor will have to be replaced. If the noise was a fan, it may have stopped. One is in the freezer behind the rear cover and one is underneath where the compressor is behind the cardboard cover.

Makes clicking noise every two minutes. freezer is thawing and top is not cooling


Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.

FRIDGE THAWING


pull your refrig away from the wall and check to see if your compressor is running i'm willing to bet that the start relay is bad you will here a humming and then clicking noise approx every 3-5  mins. its a very easy repair get part number 8201786 from whirlpool it has detailed instructions and should only cost you 40-60 dollars for part.

Kenmore refrigerator compressor clicking


Relay on the compressor bad.

Try unpluging for 30 - 45 min until the compressor has cooled down then plug it back in. If it doesn't start replace the relay. Most service techs carry a universal relay and wiil put the relay on, if it starts, your good to go, if not, then the compressor is bad.

Well mine went through some of the same thing the fridge put out less and less cold ait and the freezer started to thaw just a tad on max settings. Mines about 8 years old and a kenmore.
Made the decision on an opportune time when Sears was having an additional 10% off sale..... my problem will be fixed ina bout 2 hours when my new fridge is delivered. The sad truth is (I now its cliche) they don't make um like they used to. Last fridge i had lasted nearly 20 years. Now if you get more than 5 out of an appliance you're doing good. Good luck but it sounds like the compressor died. You'll either need an expert to come out (think they have a min fee of $100 or more) or repalce it.
