Question about Samsung RS265LBWP 21.6 Cu. Ft. Side by Side Refrigerator with Twin Cooling System - White
3 year old Samsung
Compressor is hot to touch but does not seem to vibrate
Evaprator fan works
Compressor relay clicks but do not hear the compressor come on
SOURCE: whirlpool el7atrrkq01 won't cool
First, please re-check to see if both fans are running, the condenser fan by the compressor and the evap fan in the freezer. Next, empty the freezer and remove the evap cover. look at the evap coils. Are they completly frosted up -- if so, you have a defrost problem - this will cause the condition you describe- IF they are not frosted, are only a few of the passes of coil frosted and some just wet with no frost? Then that means you need some freon. The fact that you have some cooling means that the compressor is probabaly OK.

you need to do an amp draw with your meter,clamp the run wire on the compressor,you should get 2-5 amp reading,any higher means the compressor is going bad,also should be a locked rotor amp(LRA) reading on comp.-mike

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)
