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.

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.

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!

Hi!
That is probably the compressor relay
The relay is on the compressor and needs replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay

Thank you for using fixya

I have a Magic Chef Refridge MCBR 1010W that has stopped cooling, fan runs and you can hear it kick in but then kicks off? An Ideas?


If the compressor kicks in that tells you the compressor relay and board are probably good. HOWEVER, when you say it kicks off right away that is not a good indication! It sounds like a compressor problem. Is the compressor extremely hot or is the condenser coils icing up? If so, I wouldn't invest the money into repairing it, because it would cost more to repair than to replace.

Was cooling for like 2 hrs then stoppped i hear


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

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

Will not cool properly.


You have either a faulty thermostat, dirty condenser and evaporator or a faulty run capacitor. Need to service soon before the compressor is damaged. Sea Breeze

Fan runs but no cool air on both freezer side and cold side


If you hear the compressor try to start then click off, you probably have a bad compressor or a bad relay. If it is less than 5 yrs old the compressor is still covered by warranty and will be replaced free of charge. The relay is only covered for a year. With it being a Maytag, I bet it is compressor. There have been a few models with control board problems that have caused this symptom, but that's not likely to be your problem.
