My parents have a ge refridgerator tfx27e that is not cooling as of this morning. we had repair place out and they said the compressor is bad. per his words, he tested it and said electric is going to the compressor, but when it tries to turn on, something inside is stopping it so it won't run, needs new compressor.

the issue is, this is in a custom kitchen and the fridge has wood paneling on the front and matches everything nicely. i'm afraid a new fridge will never work with the panels made for this one?

it it worth fixing? i'm also pretty handy, but the repair guy said it's a 5 hour job. advice?

The click is not normal. The compressor is not starting and is tripping the overload. There is a chance the start relay on the compressor is shorted, but most likely the compressor will have to be replaced.
Unplug it for several hours until the compressor cools down and then try it again, if it starts up ok when it is cool the compressor is the problem for sure.
If it is less than 5 yrs old the compressor is still covered by warranty and will be replaced free of charge.

SOURCE: kitchenaid compressor starts then hear a click and it stops

most likely you have a bad start relay on the compressor. when looking at comp on the left side you will see a little square relay with 2-3 wires going to it. the pt# you need is 8201786 and can be purhased online or at a local appliance parts house this is an easy repair and the part should cost you less than 70 dollars. thx peyton

It sounds like the overload and relay on the compressor.If the problem isn't that then you need a compressor.

This usually indicates that the compressor is working too hard and drawing too much current. The click that you hear is a safety shut-off. Possible causes of this are numerous and usually require having a professional come in to fix the issue, it can range anywhere from a faulty compressor to a bad start relay.

There is in most cases a temporary fix, it is called a hard start relay/capacitor. It is usually available from an appliance parts retailer for around $15 to $20. Installation instructions are included, just be sure to unplug your refrigerator first and make sure that someone following you can repair from where you left off. This relay assembly can normally get you up and running but it should not be used as a permanent fix. This will not correct for a refrigerant leak in the system.

Check your refrigerator owners manual before making any repairs or modifications to your refrigerator, there may be an extended warranty on the sealed system and compressor.

SOURCE: GSS201EPH WW Refrigerator does not run.

These symptoms indicate that the main control board is bad . The compressor relay ( one of the black boxes ) is bad . Have to replace the complete board . Without the model number , can't give you the part number . Take the model number with you when you go to get the part ( or order the part ).

Sounds like that's the relay clicking to run the blower motor .Check on your unit outside and see if the compressor is short cycling ,meaning it would run ,stop ,run ,stop .
If that's the case you have a bad install .
Maybe unit is shutting off on low pressure meaning no refrigerant. If that's the case you have a leak in the system that need to be fixed

Nothing running in refrigerator. Unplugged unit for 2 hours then pllugged back in. unit ran for about 30 seconds then stopped again


1. is light on in side when you open the door. If not check breakers or fuses.
2. Can you hear the compressor running. If not do you hear any clicking sounds.
3. If you hear clicking sounds, try putting a fan on compressor and unplug refrigerator.
4. Wait one hour.
5. plug back in. If compressor starts let it run and see if it cools, if it doesnt, call service man.
6. If it goes back to clicking, call a service man.

possibly the relay on compressor is bad. the relay will need to be removed. shake it, if it rattles and or particles fall out of it, it is bad.

I have a GE REfridge that stopped running....


The compressor never runs out of freon - unless you have a leak somewhere, which is rare - and besides, your compressor motor would be still running but you would not get cooling - the most common problem associated with this is control board failure, so compressor does not start at all. Try unplugging the refrigerator for a few minutes and plug in again - see if this resets the control board - if problem persists or comes back you will need to call service and have them check the control board.

Before doing so, try unplugging and plugging back in after a few minutes, it might get things started again - if you have a manual knob for your cold control try setting the dial to off, then turn it back on all the way until you hear a "click" sound to confirm your thermostat is working properly - if you hear the clicking on the thermostat area, but compressor motor does not come on, call service.

Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C


you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.

Compressor on whirlpool side by side


STOP! DO NOT RUN UNTIL YOU GET PROPER PART!
I hope you have not ruined the compressor by now. Your original problem was that your compressor start relay assembly was bad. The click noise you were hearing was the overload protector preventing damage to the compressor. When you bypassed this relay and overload protector you may have burned the windings of your compressor. You would need a compressor tester or you will need to put a good relay overload assembly on to see if the compressor is usable now. If the compressor is destroyed the repair bill could run from about $350.00 to $700.00 depending on model and technicians labor charge.
I hope I have helped, supertechks
