Not staying cold


tell me do you hear a buzzing sound for about 5 sec ending with a click sound. every so often?? if so then you have a start device (relay) problem on the compressor you may think the unit is running b/c the lights are on and fan is on but if you hear that noise coming from the back of the unit while turned on then its the start relay or worse case the compressor is locked up..9-10 though usually its the start device

Refrigerator not working properly. Periodically we will hear low "normal" humming noise from the compressor, but the refrigerator portion is too warm and I can tell it's not cooling.


:
Hi!
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
It does a lot of clicking (trying to start over and over again)
If thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
I use part no ERP410 POWER START RELAY, CAPACITOR AND OVERLOAD all in one. (110 v)

My bottom freezer amana refrigerator is making a clicking noise. And my freezer is barely cold.


Refrigerator making clicking noise compressor not running.

The clicking could be the start relay.If the start relay is bad, the compressor will not start and you will hear a clicking noise in 2-5 minute intervals. The clicking noise is the overload cutting the compressor off when it overheats from trying to start with a bad start relay. To find out if this is bad first unplug the refrigerator. Remove the lower cover from your refrigerator. Then take the cover off that is on the side of the compressor,you will see wires going to this. Now you should be able to see the start relay plugged on to the side of the compressor and unplug it. Now the best way to tell if it's bad is to shake it. If it rattles, it's bad and needs to be replaced. If not, most of the time it's ok. But rather than saying the compressors bad, you might want to replace it anyways because it does not cost much. A quick check on the compressor is to remove the start relay. You will see 3 pins connect a multi meter set for continuity. You should have continuity between any of the 3 pins. If you do not the compressor is bad. Also check from each pin to a good ground on the cabinet. There should be no continuity if there is the compressor is bad. If you replace it and it doesn't work then the compressor is bad and you'll need to call a repairman. (Note that compressors are very costly and are normally not worth fixing).You can enter your model # at Refrigerator clicking for diagrams and illustrations or to purchase a start relay. A 3 in 1 start relay will also work fine.

Have a Frididaire side by side less than six years old. WAs running fine. I moved. During the summer months I would hear the motor like it would come on and off, on and off and then oneday NOTHING. I live...


It sounds like the compressor is locked up, and replacement is the only fix. By any chance did you lay the refrigerator down when you moved it? (It's OK to lay them down, but only on a particular side which varies from unit to unit.).

The "nothing" noise you indicate is/was the start relay jumping in and out of the circuit. It' supposed to do this, and when the compressor runs, you won't hear it over the other noise. But when the compressor is locked up, then you will hear it pull-in, and then hear it drop out as the windings in the compressor overheat and break the circuit.
If the compressor starts, then the windings don't get as hot, and the relay drops out, and everything is fine.

Reply back your thoughts/questions.

My refrigerator is not functioning


Sounds like your compressor is overheated. this could be caused from one or more of these things since you have already cleaned out the condenser.

  • low on refrigerant
  • compressor burning out
  • start components for compressor are bad( start relay,or run capacitor)
