Fridge wont turn on


After ensuring power is going to unit, I would be looking at either compressor or thermostat or control board. If compressor is not running at all, not even clicking, then board or thermostat is most likely the problem. If compressor is running or trying to run, then starting device for compressor or compressor itself is bad.

If the fans are running and then the compressor is trying to start but clicking out on the overload . If the compressor is hot but not running try a new relay pack if it still does it then the compressor may be bad.

Husky comp on 1st start builds up 75 lbs and wont restart


Check the reset button on the motor to see if it tripped. The motor may be overheating. Some motors have an internal breaker and they have to cool off before they restart. Also check the pressure switch. Move the switch back and forth ( on and off ) and listen for a click. If it doesn't click with low to no air pressure then the switch is bad.

Maytag refrigerator clicking


it sounds like a bad: 
  • ·       start switch (on the side of the compressor) or
  • ·        compressor itself

the start switch clicks  off usually when the compressor is pulling too many amps or the compressor is overheating. if the compressor is not even running then its probably not overheating.
so either the compressor is pulling too many amps (bad compressor) or the start switch is bad and cannot handle the amps required to start the compressor.
