Jeff if you are up to it I can help you find the problem and very possibly resolve the problem, I will return with contact and links if I can find the model listed, Hang in there, First unplug and remove front cover. Then we need to find the start capacitor and eliminate it from the windings. I have much more if you would like toy approach this. Tell me the age of AC and its voltage. If you are going to save money and that is the reason the repairs to kitchen it would be wise to use a 220 voltage AC. That depends on your local voltage and the plug style or country you live in. I have tried to help some people not realizing their voltage. Please do not leave plugged in, as it may damage the internal overloasd inside of the compressor. I will be back, Sea Breeze

The relay on your box is damaged.. You have to get it replaced.. Not to be tried by a novice but if you have some experience in electronics it can be fixed by you. The relay costs around 75$. Good luck!

Refrigerator model bx21vl does not cool. I can hear the compressor kick in but it kicks out in 5-10 seconds. Then after about 102 to one minute it kicks in and out again,


Compressor is tripping on overload. You may just need the overload and relay replaced due to a bad compressor relay. The relay is what switches the compressor from it's start winding to it's run winding. If you pull the relay off, shake it to see if you hear lots of rattling inside, that's a sure sign of a bad relay. I would replace both of them.
Here is the overload relay to order.
Here is the start relay to order.

I have a kenmore elite , Mod# 71203100 mfg=10/10/2001 it worked fine since I got it ..48 hrs ago it was found to be not cooling anymore, lights go on fan's work , but compresor will kick in for 30 sec and...


I would fix it because The way I am understanding the compressor is getting hot and thermally kicking out. This could be a thermostat or a start relay for the compressor. Or it could be low on charge that will also make the compressor shut down because of the head pressure. I would check out my thermostat really close and any start relay's for the compressor. It would be about 200.00 compared to 1200.00 to replace it.

(window a/c stopped cooling? any ideas!!


Check all of the electrical connections and check the electrical cord for any apparent damage. If no problems found in wiring or cords, look for a compressor run capacitor.......carefully mark the capacitor and the wires you pull off.......take the capacitor to the nearest Air Conditioning Supply House and have them test it for you. If it is bad, they can offer a replacement and show you how to hook it up like the other one.

Fire stoppes and fan still runs


1st take a air gun and blow in the fan to clear of debris. 2nd make sure to push your reset button on the back by your fan. Last you can calibrate your flame/heat by removing the fan housing & you will find 2 set screws try a small 1/16 turn on them and try to run, should run better for you.

Our refrigerator/freezer will stop working (not cool or freeze) then days later will begin to work again.


If you have already tried shutting off for 24 hrs. (reset), cleaning the under-bed condenser fins (vacuum and/or compressed air) and the issue still continues, you may be lucky enough to just need a relay/overload switch; the thingy connected to the compressor, which by the way takes patience and ease in removing. However, once the plastic cover is off, simply unplug the relay switch(s) and shake it, if you hear rattling (or) smell burn, the relay is toast and thus needs replacement. Simple enough, for replacement type in the model # of the compressor: (i.e.) [[ Embraco FGS 80 with relay/overload switch ]] cost around ($30-$50)... order, replace, re-plug, and if on target, the compressor will kick in. let run for 24 hours before adding foods, and all is good. Have a nice day. ee
