Air compressor cannot spin up with pressure in tank sometimes


There is an unloader valve and a check valve on the discharge side of the pump. The check valve is not holding and the unloader is not dumping the pressure so the compressor cannot start. Since it is new, you may want to take it back. If not you are going to be replacing parts.

The problem you describe is have to with electric parts and not mechanical parts. So it worth a lot to fix it since it is not an expensive part.
However the electric problems are peculiar and costand like yours and sometimes take time to be identify and be fixed.
The most possible in you case are:
1. the thermsostat it might becoming stuck since it have electric contacts so when the fridge whould stop working you must check these contacts if they stay open permanetly, thus to replace the thermostat.
2.If the thermostat is ok then you need to check the starting capacitor of the compressor or the starting relay of the cmpressor the two parts in the black box attached to the compressor which one of them and sometime both ot thm have overhetaed and sometimes stuck and they can not start the compressor.
In any case even if you replace all three then it worth the cost for this fridge.

Amana refrigerator/freezer started making a buzzing noise and stopped working. Inside lights do work, but nothing cools.


based on your description i would guess that the start relay on the compressor has failed or the compressor it self is the buzz you are hearing... if the noise would come and last for 5-20 seconds and then stop or click sound made then that is the compressor trying to start but kicking out on overload. it usually after sometimes a few minutes or sometimes in thirty minutes will try again once the compressor gets hot enought it may take longer.. you will have to gain access to rear of unit and on compressor is a relay that may have failed. make a drawing of the wires and remove sometimes (2) seperate pieces see if it rattles or smells burnt. if so get you a new relay and may have caught it early enough to not have done any other damage... repost with anymore questions good luck to you...

Freezer stops freezing, works for a while, then stops again. What might the problem be? It is a side-by-side. Sometimes the refriderator side also varies in temperature. Gregg Wakefield
