    Tried some of the suggestions, everything seemed to be o.k. Was pretty much at the end of what I thought I could do so I called a Tech. Turns out it was the Motherboard, Tech install a new one, and it started working pronto! Looked at the old board, and it had Black areas where a component had fried. Works good!!

The first place to start is with the power off, place an amp clamp around the "common" wire from the compressor. Now turn the power on and check what your amp draw is. If there is no amp draw, then the compressor is not running. Why is the compressor not running? When you say you "checked continuity of the compressor, ok" I take it that you found your run, start, and common windings, and that by doing a little math you determined everything was good. If this is the case, then check to make sure the capacitor is good, and any starting relay that might be used is in correct working order. Hope this helps

My frigidare refrigerator was working fine when i put it in storage 3 years ago. took it out of storage a week ago and plug it up and it has not cooled at all.


. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. The relay is a small usually black cube shaped electrical part plugged into the compressor or wired to it nearby. It may appear burnt or rattle when shaken if it's bad. The two connections should show continuity with an amp meter. If it's good then it's most likely the compressor causing the problem.
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Hi,
It sounds like you have narrowed it down to the check valve...are you sure you are installing the check valve in the correct direction??? Can you blow through the check valve???

Duo Therm compressor tries to start and kicks out


I don't think these little units have a start capacitor but what I would do is check that the on/off switch wires to make sure they aren't loose. Also check the wires to the compressor for loose wires as well. It is possible that these are the first signs that the compressor is about to fail. They also can act up some when they haven't been used for awhile and then you try and start them up. Try running the unit for a few hours without asking it to cycle. It might just be a sticky valve.

if you hear a clicking like the compressor is trying to start, like a clicking on and off this sounds like it could be your start run relay trying to kick your compressor on. if this is bad it will continue to click, and your compressor won't start. unless your mechanically inclined this might be the time to call a service tech. the start run relay switch sits on the compressor behind the fridge.

My Kenmore had the problem of the fan running, but not the compressor. The compressor overload part was bad.

Stopped working


Unplug the ref for a couple of hours ( let the compressor cool off) plug it back in. If it still clicks, replace the relay, if the compressor still won't start then the compressor is bad. Last rights at this point would be appropriate.
