Recently got 2nd hand Amana side by side model XRSS687BB. Compressor stops when closing fridge door. Freezer working as long as fridge door remains open. Fridge damper closed and won't open though it


I have went through something like this before, the serviceman told me it was in fact a compressor issue. Do you hear some kind of buzzing noise? Is it extremely hot? Then it's a compressor issue. They are pretty expensive to have replaced, would recommend to purchase a different brand. I had the same problems as Frigidaire. I had the compressor replaced twice during a time period of 2 years. It went out a third time and it was out of warranty and they told me that the compressor didn't receive any kind of warranty gain for itself and the company shortened the warranty of the compressor because of the issues they had with them. Since they were aftermarket ones, didn't apply to the original warranty. If you continue to have issues with this brand, please research the brand integrity online before you make another bad investment. I paid more for the new brand but it lasted longer than 9 months. The next fridge that I bought was older and used but lasted 5 years, so I stuck to that brand and it paid dividends stop far.

This is a bad compressor, or overload-relay kit. Disconnect the power, remove the overload-relay from the compressor, and test the three compressor terminals for continuity . You should have continuity between each terminal, and you should not have continuity between any terminal and ground. If this tests ok, then replace the overload-relay kit. This is a common repair for me, and it is very rare for us to find a bad compressor, so you should be ok. If it is a bad compressor, and it is less than five years old, you have a five year sealed system warrantee, that will cover the repair cost. If it is over five years old, it is not worth repair. When you are done with the repair, make sure you install a 2000 joule or higher, surge protector to protect your refrigerator from this type of repair in the future. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Compressor runs only a few seconds then clicks off


The compressor is going bad, check your owners manual for warranty information or look here http://b2b.frigidaire.com/support/manuals.asp if you cant find the manual. Some units have up to 7 years on the sealed system (the compressor, cooling coils, and hot coils).

You may have a bad relay/overload part number 12555902 runs about $15 but if the compressor is going bad it may not work.If you take the relay/overload off  turn it into your hand and shake it if you it sprinkles out like a pepper shaker go with the OEM part afore mentioned,but if it sounds solid and nothing comes out go with a hard start(SUPCO RC0410 also about $15) it will buy you at least another couple years in which to shop around for a replacement or save the money for a new compressor.You can call Amana to check on the warranty but most only had five years on sealed system.

If the defrost heating element, defrost timer or evaporater fan weren't working, you'd develop a block of ice on the evaporator. Is the compressor running? If it is, it might have bad valves from the frost buildup scenario. Liquid refrigerant could have gotten to the suction valves. The sealed system should have a five year warranty. Might be time to call a pro

Compressors fail due to:

Have one similar and found out the compressor goes out on them about a year and half after purchase. You can buy another compressor but the likely hood of it going out again is likely. Sorry but we bought bad fridges. Never again will I buy a Fridgidaire.

REF AND FREEZER STOP COOLING


We had a repairman come out, said it was the compressor, bad news...$650 if he repaired...good news...compressor under manufacturer's warranty for five years so you may want to call Maytag. It will be less expensive if the part is covered and you only have to pay for labor. Hope this helps. Bought our fridge 12/2004 so it was covered.
