Compressor only stays running for about 10 seconds and kicks off. Will not turn on for about 3 minutes and continuously repeats this cycle.


Sounds like the compressor has siezed. Switch off to cool for 3 h.ours and try to restart. If it has a start capacitor, repace it

Relay keeps clicking on and off


We aren't sure either without putting a tester called an "Annie" on your compressor. Maytag has had a lot of compressor failures, and we have installed overload relays on some of these refrigerators, the compressors ran fine and pulled perfect amps, and hours later the compressors failed anyway. You can remove the overload relay from the compressor, and do a continuity check on the three terminals. You should get continuity between all three, and you should not get any continuity between any terminal and the compressor case or freon lines. If the compressor tests fine, then it is usually, not always, a bad overload relay. If the compressor tests bad, then your refer is not worth repair, usually a 900 to 1100.00 repair in my area in Seattle. You may still have a warrantee on it as most brands still have a full 5 year warrantee on the compressor. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

Turn on the and it begins to cool for about 10


Possibly your compressor overload is bad. A cheap and easy to replace part mounted on top of the compressor.

Craftsman compressor runs for 10 sec. and shuts off.


I have a Craftsman 2hp/12 gallon Air compressor that does basicly the same thing, will start, run for about 3 seconds and stop. I replaced the pressure switch but still have the problem. Any suggestions?

Side by side not cold


compressor overheated or stuck. also check starter relay...maybe broke.
if ever thing is alright,

let it stand for about 4 hours unplugged to cool the compressor.

plug it after 4 hours and if the compressor would still run for 10 seconds, then you have a faulty compressor.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Compressor wont start


It is probably a failed run capacitor for the compressor. Without the capacitor, the motor can't even try to run, but it will draw extreamly high amperage until it trips the thermal overload (avarage trip time 5-10sec) after it has a few second for the safety to cool off, it will try again. Either that or the compressor truly is seized

Compressor won't stay on...


My guess is that you have a problem with one of the following:

Start relay...this gives a quick shot to the compressor to start the cycle...if it doesn't shut it will go to overload. The capacitor in the start circuit which assists the start relay or the compressor itself. Best bet: get a service guy in.

Noisy compressor


If it's a buzzing for a few seconds followed by a click, your probably going to need a compressor. This sounds like that problem. Check your warranty. Many manufacturers went to 1 year on this in '06.
