We just came home and found water on the floor....the freezer had melted and the frig is warm...we threw everything out....we cleaned the dust behind the frig...what do we do next?


Hello,

Do you see anything happening with the refrig. is teh compressor running..do you hear any fan on?? or perhaps every couple of minutes their is humming/buzzing sound floowed by a click??

If you hear nothing at all going on i would suspect the thermostat or the defrost control board is the problem,If ya hear a buzz/click then what would be needed was the relay/overload on the compressor

Reply with what exactly your experiencing and i could help ya narrow it down

HAS POWER , BUT SEEMS TO BE LOCKED UP. The sound that it makes is a hum and no air in or out


The electric motor may have seized up from moisture or contamination. Make sure all air has been released by opening a valve or fitting.Disconnect the compressor from its power source, (Tape the power cord plug to compressor handle for extra safety) Remove motor cover, try to rotate the motor with a screw driver using just a little pressure.If the motor has brushes, make sure they are in contact and do not need replacement. Check to see if the motor has lubrication points. If so us a little WD40 or other oil based product.Place cover back on motor. Plug unit in to power source. If the unit still 'hums' turn switch off. I believe this compressor is oil less.If so the motor and compressor may be connected as a unit.If the compressor itself is froze up you may be able to separate the two and try freeing any frozen parts, again making sure the unit is disconnected.If the compressor does not respond to the suggestions given consider replacement if out of warranty.Good luck!

WMSD2756GES Clicking, slight burnt smell, humming then repeats


Replace the overload relays down at the compressor. Easy repair and too expensive. Do this and you'll be good to go.

Unit stopped running. T-stat just makes a clicking sound


Are you sure its the thermostat that is clicking and not the compressor. IF the click is comming from inside the frig it is the thermostat, but if its comming from the rear of the frig its the compressor.
If its the thermostat thats clicking you can unplug the frig and remove the thermostat and jump the two wires together and plug the frig back in to see of the compressor comes on. If it comes on, replace the thermostat.
If it doesn't come on check to see if you have current to the compressor. If no power to the compressor check to see of the frig is stuck in defrost. Locate the defrost timer and advance one click and observe if the frig comes on. If the frig comes on at this point replace the defrost timer.

2006 kenmore frig - freezer and frig are both hot


if both sides are hot it sounds as if the compressor isnt running. pull the refig away from the wall and remove the cardboard cover the compressor is the black bowling ball loking thing that you see. fell to see if it is running should have vibration and making a humming sound. if its not running listen for 3-5 minutes to see if you are hearing an intermittent humming and clicking noise. this would indicate a bad start relay for the compressor. if the compressor is running then you mostlikely have a freon problem which will require a qualified technician to repair. good luck and thanks for using fixya Peyton..

My Frig is not cooling


your ptc relay on the compressor when they go out they make a clicking noise. The compressor will quit and little bit later might try to come back on and click again. You need a new ptc relay. It is on the compressor little black box just unplug your refrigerator and pull the relay off. undo the wires and get a new one. Kinda staight forward compressor has 3 prongs that the relay plugs into.

There are very few parts on this unit. UNPLUG unit jump out the 2 wires to the t-stat. plug it in, if it runs the t-stat is bad.
After that theres the overload /start component on the side of the compressor. UNPLUG remove cover look for burnt wires , wires are ok feel if the compressor is HOT to the touch. if it is it could be off on internal overload. let it sit for a while plug in and listen for a hum or click in the compressor. If there is a Hum then click your back to eather your overload /starter is bad of the Compressor is bad. If you have an amp meter you can check the compressor by clipping the meter on power wire. on the information tag that has the model and serial # there is a amp draw for Lock rotor. If the unit draws Lock Rotor amps the compressor is bad.
