Question about Refrigerators
My fridge/freezer keeps clicking very loudly for about 20 seconds then turns itself off. If I turn it off at the mains leave it for about a minute then turn it back on it will work again as it should but only for a period of time before clicking again and turning itself off.
Any advice on this issue so I don't have to call out an engineer or buy a new one would be much appreciated. Thank you.
Pull the refrig out and remove the back panel . If the fan motor , cooling the compressor is working , then the overload/relay is bad . This is the piece plugged onto the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires attached to it . You can easily replace . If you had given the brand and complete model number , I could have given you the part number .
If the fan is not running , the overload will click off , thereby , causing the compressor to get too hot , making the overload click off .
