Question about KitchenAid Superba KSRG25FK Side by Side Refrigerator
I hear the fans and some peridoc clicks from the compressor. Compressor gets very hot hot. None of the copper lines change temprature significantly.
Is my compressor shot?
My unit is 8 years old, it it worth repairing?
The clicking you hear is the compressor trying to start and can't.
This can be due to the start components mounted on the side of the compressor or the compressor itself.
The items mounted on the compressor are the thermal overload, the start relay and on many models a start/run capacitor.
When the protective cover is removed, these items can be removed by pulling them off the pins of the compressor.
Most appliance parts houses would be more than happy to test them for you. If any are found defective. Replace.
If the starting components all check good, then it is likely the compressor itself has failed. The price varies but could be near $500.00 with the installation.
