It could be the compressor or the start relay. If you hear a click sound, then your relay is good and your compressor is shot. If you do not hear a clicking sound, then your compressor is good and your relay is shot. Also check to make sure that under operation even if the compressor does not work the fan should still be spinning, even if it is warm air. Please rate

IF THE COMPRESSOR IS TO HOT TO TOUCH WITH YOUR HAND MORE THEN LIKELY THE REED VALVES IN THE COMPRESSOR ARE PASSING HOT GAS BACK INTO THE COMPRESSOR AND HAS DAMAGED THE UNIT. MY ADVICE IS TO LOOK ON TOP OF THE COMPRESSOR GET THE MODEL# & SERIAL # & MAKE AND LOOK ON LINE AND GET A PRICE FOR A NEW COMPRESSOR, PENDING ON MAKE AND MODEL THEY RUN AROUND 3-4 HUNDRED DOLLARS JUST FOR COMPRESSOR INSTALL CAN COST MORE THEN THE COMPRESSOR UNLESS YOU KNOW SOME ONE WHO HAS THETOOLS TO DO IT RIGHT

Frige gets hot and makes clicking noises.


Sounds like the compressor is not working very well the clicking is the compressor starter trying to start the compressor. May be low on freon or bad compressor. You can probaly buy one cheaper than fixing this one

Kenmore Fridge 4 yrs old side by side model not cooling


Hi. Your refrigerator is under 5 years and the compressor is still under full warranty. Call Sears and get it fixed parts and labor included. There should be no charge to you whatsoever. Make sure they understand that on the phone when you set up the appointment. You would be better off having a different technician from Sears come out to your house, as the one that came was not honest with you. Good luck, Mack
