Refridgerator/freezer not cooling

HI I have been reading on the site and it sounds like the relay for our compressor might be shot, locking up the compressor (no cooling in either side, and there is an intermittent clicking sound). It is late at night and not a time when I can get a repairman, but I am wondering if it is dangerous to leave the fridge plugged in until morning, or if I should unplug it overnight. Thanx,
-Mikey

    Thanx very much. I unplugged it and got a service guy around in the morning. He replaced the relay and we're back in business!

It sounds like a faulty compressor and yes you should unplug it until the service man.

LG refridgerator that is 12 years old. Clicking sound from back of the unit t my husband heard "chiming" while he was asleep. Freezer compartment is not freezing and fridge section is not cooling.


It sounds like the compressor start relay is not able to start the compressor, but it keeps trying. Test the start relay or replace it and hope the compressor itself has not failed.

Refridgerator and Freezer sections not cooling


Check power is o.k. And then check power to relay. If o.k., Check compressor is working. If not replace relay. After replacing relay compressor working. Keep your arms on discharge pipe line. If warm, gas is o.k. Otherwise, gas leak. If warm and whistling sound inside the freezer, gas flow is normal. If not, system chocked. Release gas and flush out system, vacuum and gas charging.
Hope, helpful.
