GE TBX25ZLB Refrigerator Compressor won't Engage

GE refrigerator model # TBX25ZLB . Fans turn on, only hear click, compressor never kicks in. I am guessing some sort of a relay might need replaced? Can somebody please help me find the model/part # for the relay, and which one it might typically be on this fridge? Thanks!

    Thank you so much for your quick response. So would a good test be to remove the relay and shake it, listening for "stuff" clicking around in it? I thought generally you would be able to tell if the relay is faulty that way. If it is simply the relay, I'd rather fix it sine this is the spare fridge. Otherwise yes, looks like a new fridge might be the only solution.

Part number for compressor relay is WR7X222. However, you have a very old rotary compressor there and most likely it went bad. I would just buy a new fridge. Don't waste your time/money. The fridge is too old.

Ge monogram won't turn on?


Thank You for providing the model number so I was able to see what parts your refrigerator uses. Some models like yours have something called an inverter board, yours does not. Fans not working properly can also bring a heavy load on compressor causing the compressor to heat up and damaging the motherboard where you hear the clicking.The problem you are having is possibly related to the=> WR07X10074 Start Relay, e=>WR08X10052 Overload WR62X0080 Run Capacitor, and the=> WR55X11130 Main Control Board Here is another board sold at Appliance Parts Pro's=> WR55X11130 Main Control Board Assembly If you would like to do this yourself I will be glad to help answer the questions you have even assist you with installation questions. The problems you are having i typical for GE Refrigerators. If you have questions I am here. Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911

Psc25mstass The refrigerator does not cool at all. condensor and evaporator fans run but the compressor does not. When plugged in you can hear the inverter whine then the compressor will turn over and...


:
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)

Profile Arctica, Air flow fan runs but compressor dont kick in to make anything cold!


1. is light on in side when you open the door. If not check breakers or fuses.
2. Can you hear the compressor running. If not do you hear any clicking sounds.
3. If you hear clicking sounds, try putting a fan on compressor and unplug refrigerator.
4. Wait one hour.
5. plug back in. If compressor starts let it run and see if it cools, if it doesnt, call service man.
6. If it goes back to clicking, call a service man.
try this.

GE HSS25GFP not cooling at all


May be a problem related to the compressor. Click may be the overload protector on the compressor tripping. If it is a problem with the compressor it should be covered by warranty if it is only three years old.
