SOURCE: Kitchenaid Superba compressor

The compressor relay is located on the compressor under a cover. Before you go to the compressor I would check for other problems that you can see and hear. If the compressor is running there is nothing wrong with its relay.
1. Check the condenser and make sure it is clear and free of dust.
2. If the compressor is cool or cold check for a bad temperature control.
3. Check the freezer compartment for frost on back wall.

SOURCE: kitchenaid compressor starts then hear a click and it stops

most likely you have a bad start relay on the compressor. when looking at comp on the left side you will see a little square relay with 2-3 wires going to it. the pt# you need is 8201786 and can be purhased online or at a local appliance parts house this is an easy repair and the part should cost you less than 70 dollars. thx peyton

SOURCE: Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C

you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.

SOURCE: my refrig is not getting cold. I hear a clicking

You have a bad overload / relay , which is plugged onto the side of the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires going to it . The part number is 2220477 , and is easily replaceable .

SOURCE: Fridge not getting cold, making clicking sound - Whirlpool EDSFTG

remove the rtc overload off the compressor and shake it,if it rattles thats your culprit,also if when its running and the compressor is quite warm to the touch,its only running on the start windings and isnt actually running right and will overheat and ruin the compressor,replace the rtc its cheaper than a new compressor

:
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)

Freezer not working


That is the compressor overload. I recommend you disconnect the refrigerator now to prevent damage to the compressor. It could be the start relay or the start capacitor is defective. Let me know when you are ready to test the compressor. This is serious that you disconnect asap to prevent damage to the internal overload. What you hear now is the external overload and the compressor will be too hot to touch. Sea Breeze

if you hear a clicking like the compressor is trying to start, like a clicking on and off this sounds like it could be your start run relay trying to kick your compressor on. if this is bad it will continue to click, and your compressor won't start. unless your mechanically inclined this might be the time to call a service tech. the start run relay switch sits on the compressor behind the fridge.

Kitchenaid built-in refrig 15 yrs old cold freezer, warm fridge


it.s the frezer that makes the refer cold.the evap fan in the frezer moves that chilled air to the refer.if that fan is slow or any blockage inthe air ways it slows that process.Also the frezer should be close to 0 degrees if theres a defrost prob that would make fresh food warmer

Freezer not freezing, everything is thawing.. only 3 yrs old, refrig part only 47 degrees


sounds like your compressor is not starting up. unplug your refrig then remove the start relay from the side of the compressor. shake the relay if you hear alot of rattling around in the relay then most likely that is all thats wrong. if it doesnt rattle alot then possibly the compressor is locked up and is bad.

when you shake the relay if its broken internally usually little peices of ceramic will fall out of it. so shake it over a peice of paper to see if that happens/..

Side by side not cooling


Couple of things... first need to see if the compressor is really hot to the touch and "clicking" on and off every 3-5 minutes due to high heat (trying to start). If that's what is happening you likely have a "start device" failure (little box on the side of the compressor). If the box is white in color and you pull it off and it makes noise when you shake it (along with little bits of debris falling out) you know it's bad. They make a kit to fix that known problem. If the compressor isn't trying to start but actually runs quietly... check that the cooling coil isn't all iced up preventing proper air flow inside the cabinet (take the panel of the rear inside of the freezer section to check it). If that is all a block of ice basically you likely have a defrost cycle problem (defrost t-stat bad, defrost timer bad, etc.). Other than that you should have a little fan right above the coils to move air around, if the compressor is running and the compressor fan (called condensor fan) is running then this fan (called evaporator fan) should also be running to move the cold air around. If that fan is dead then you will have a nice cold coil but no air flow over it to cool the rest of the refer/freezer properly. Let us know what ya find out.
