Question about Jenn-Air JCD2389G Side by Side Refrigerator
My compressor would click then 5-10 seconds click again but never starting. I found on side of compressor where wire plug in like plastic switches. The one on top I shook it ,sounded like dust inside, so I made me a couple jumpers and compressor started, but only ran for about few minutes, then got real hot and stopped. Is it compressor and what should I expect to pay for new one.
STOP! DO NOT RUN UNTIL YOU GET PROPER PART!
I hope you have not ruined the compressor by now. Your original problem was that your compressor start relay assembly was bad. The click noise you were hearing was the overload protector preventing damage to the compressor. When you bypassed this relay and overload protector you may have burned the windings of your compressor. You would need a compressor tester or you will need to put a good relay overload assembly on to see if the compressor is usable now. If the compressor is destroyed the repair bill could run from about $350.00 to $700.00 depending on model and technicians labor charge.
I hope I have helped, supertechks
