Question about Frigidaire GLRS237ZA Side by Side Refrigerator
My refrigerator sounds like a Dryer buzzer going off. It cycles at a every four minutes and buzzes for ten seconds. I took off the rear panel and the sound is coming from the compressor area. Could this be the Run Capacitor or the PTC starter?
It looks like you have a bad compressor. try replacing the ptc starter and the run capacitor, if it did not change anything, then you have a bad compressort that needs to be replaced. if those parts are expensive, test the capacitor by using an analog meter, test the terminal using the X100 resistance. the meter needle should indicate continuity and slowly goes back to infinity. then reverse the terminals to the test prods and it should happen again. then test the resistance of the ptc starter, it should have a reading between 20 ohms and 100 ohms. and there whould be no rattling sound inside the ptc starter. hope i was able to help...
