Either the start relay on the compressor is bad OR the compressor is bad.
Replace the start relay and find out which it is.
When you remove the relay you may see a burned spot on one or more of the relay terminals.
If so,it is definitely bad.

Not cooling


If you hear a hum then a click, that is the compressor short cycling. Put your hand on the compressor in the back, if it is very hot(don't burn yourself) then the compressor is dead and will need to be replaced. If the compressor is cold and not running, check for power through the t-stat and to the freezer. If there is power to the t-stat but not through it then replace the t-stat. If there is power through then there is a good chance the compressor is dead.

I would check to see if the compressor is running. If it is very hot and not humming then the comp is done for. or very hot and you can feel it running constantly the you have a leak and note enough refrigerant. If you hear it run then click then run then click and if hot the comp is done for and needs to be replaced.

Fridge defrosted and the motor seems to have stopped working, electricity working fine to it


Most likely t-stat. If the t-stat is good then move to compressor. If you hear a hum then a click and it shuts off, that is the internal overload telling you the compressor is done and needs to be replaced.

Compressor gets very hot


The compressor has a start device that could be the problem. If you remove it it should not rattle if it does it is very likely the problem. If it doesn't rattle then it could be your compressor. Check the start device first. it is located directly on the side of the compressor. and is easy to remove and install anoter.

Kenmore 7.5 freezer stopped working.


Thanks for all the suggestions. I just replaced the overload relay and it does the same thing. Runs for a few seconds and the loud click from overload relay. I did notice the relay is really hot to the touch, if that matters.Coils on back are clean. I had noticed the last few months that the inside coils were frosting up quite a bit.Really had hoped it was the relay.

Refridgerator freezer not geting cold


Your compressor has shorted out. The compressor shouldnt be scorching hot just warm. And that humming you are hearing is the compressor trying to start but it is shorted. There is nothing you can do except for replace the compressor.(or the refrigerator)
