If Klixon relay attached to my compressor rattles, is it definitely no goad?


If the relay was faulty, the compressor would not start when cold. To test the relay put a continuity meter in the 2 pins for common and start. there should be no reading. Turn it upside down there should be continuity. If there is a capacitor attached to the relay as well, change it as it may be failing. Apart from these, check all else is working ok, particularly the condenser fan and gas level. if all else is ok, the compressor is overheating and siezing and will need replacing.

We bought this kenmore fridge in 2002, and it buzzes for about 15 seconds, then quits for about a minute.I'm sure its the compressor, but why all of a sudden, and is there any inexpensive fix?


The buzz your hearing is the compressor NOT starting. You should hear a click after about 45 seconds and then silence. The click is the KLIXON thermal overload doing it's job of hopefully protecting the compressor windings.

There are a couple of things that can be causing your problem.

1. The PTC relay / KLIXON assy is no longer working normally (sometimes caused by a loose / hot contact)

2. The run Capacitor has failed

3. The bad news... the compressor rotor is locked and will not turn.

The relay and capacitor are a moderatly priced fix even if you have in home service.

If the compressor is locked and has to be replaced then your looking at a repair bill well upwards of $300.00 with the compressor, pre-oil for the system, labor and Freon / coolant.

Here are the unit's issues: 1. freezer won't stay cold and 2, a loud buzzing sound can be heard periodically Any idea what's causing these defects Thank for any help you can offer


Sound's like the start relay overload on the compressor if you hear a humming and a click do not leave plugged in get new relay/overload at you local part store or the compressor winding will burn up and a new frig will occur message me if this is the sound and inconsistent cooling temp b4 you heard the buzzing and click take you model # to the parts store an easier repair which is good....

Whirlpool upright freezer making buzzing noise and not working


I had a similar problem yesterday. I woke up and the freezer was not working anymore. It would make a buzzing noise and then it would click and shut off. I looked online for some possible solutions. Here is what I did:
I unplugged the fridge. I pulled it out and took off the cardboard backing. I used an air compressor to blow out all of the dust and dirt that had accumulated on the condenser coils. A shop-vac just wasn't powerful enough to pull out all of the dust/dirt. After that, I plugged it back in....and the same thing was happening. It would buzz, and then it would click off. I figured out that the "click" was coming from a starter relay (a small plastic piece attached to the big black compressor). I detached the plug from the relay and then detached the relay from the compressor. The relay was burned out. It turns out this is a common problem with the relay. I replaced the relay for $50 (from an appliance parts store) and put the whole thing back together in about 10 minutes.
I plugged the fridge back in and the compressor started, and now the freezer works better than other. I saved about $400 doing it myself, all in about one hour. And better yet, my wife was very impressed. Not bad for a doctor.

Buzzing noise -Kyoto KU 9577 Freezer


you may have a bad compressor or a bad compressor relay. The buzzing noise sounds like the compressor trying to start but can't. Unplug the unit and pull the relay off the compressor. If it rattles like gravel in side it replace the relay. If it doesn't then you may need to call a repairman to check the compressor. Hope this helps.

Buzzing compressor


heres a part number for the overload relay assy 5304468029.. its mounted on the side of compressor. its a tricky one, usually my experience has been the noise comes from a bad compressor( which you should have 5 year full warr from manufacture). sometimes the overload relay does go bad preventing compressor from starting,the n ew compressor will come with a new overload relay

Freezer problem


Not sure of what cut out refers to. If you mean the power supply is tripped out after twenty secs hen I would say there is a fair chance of the compressor being down to earth (ie broken). If you mean that the compressor tries to run and then stops after twenty secs then there is a fair chance the compressor is stalled (ie broken). There is also a chance that the relay (starting device) may be at fault failing to start the compressor. If it is the relay then the cost may be around £70 if its the compressor then you are lookin at a couple of hundred pounds approx. The buzzing sound does sound like the compressor trying to run but stalled and unfortunately compressors have no real average anymore and are prone to fail whenever they choose to. Sorry to sound negative and hope this helps.
