Question about Refrigerators
The compressor motor is either stuck or shorted as indicated by the dimming if the light. It draws most of the current causing the light to dim and heat up the windings which will eventually burn out. The compressor is not serviceable nor repairable and needs to be replaced to make the refrigerator work again which is most of the time a non-economical fix to do depending on the make and model of the refrigerator. Please specify the make and model for the exact replacement parts if you decide to replace the compressor and need further advice.
