Emerson model#CR519B. The unit just stopped working. If plugged in a motor runs for about 8 seconds and clicks off; about a minute later it repeats. Help

I had the same problem with a small wine cooler. It happened to me twice in 6 years. Both times I had to replace the starter relay.

I couldn't find any repair facilities willing to work on these small wine coolers or refrigerators, probably because the bill would be more than the used fridge is worth. If you feel confident around a volt/ohm meter and electricity, you could learn how to test this and maybe fix it yourself.

You shouldn't do any of this if you aren't familiar with using a Volt/Ohm meter and can safely and confidently work around electricity.:

  1. Unplug the fridge
  2. I first tested the compressor with an Ohm Meter (see how with youtube video below or by reading how at It was good, but it kept starting and stopping within a few seconds.
  3. Basically my starter capacitor/relay wasn't working. It supplies temporary starting voltage to the starter relay in the compressor, then cuts off to allow the motor to run.
  4. I bought a Supco 3-in-1 on Amazon for less than $13 and hooked it up according to the supplied instructions. It lasted about 3 years.
Of course, the factory recommended repair is to buy the original replacement relay, but it will be more costly and harder to find.

I bought a Supco 3 in 1 Hard Start relay sized for the HP on my compressor. Mine was the Supco RCO810 (see link below).

NOTE: Before I replaced the starter relay and overload protection with a Supco 3 in 1, I learned how to test the compressor with a Volt/Ohm meter. If you don't have a meter, you can buy them online or inexpensive to free with a coupon at Harbor Freight.

Hi. I have a GE Monogram refrigerator/freezer side-by-side. The freezer warms up every couple days, and melts all the ice in the ice maker. It melts all over everything. Then it all freezes again.

Nosara, That was a comfortable chat. You may also contact me through my website Click Here=> Appliance 911 All refrigerators are tricky but getting the right person to do the work is more than tricky.sea_breeze_41.jpg Just pepare for someone to work on your GE Monogram ZISS480DRSS by having an extra place to place foods that may spoil. Click Here=> GE Technical Information While on that page you will see a wiring diagram click on it and it will open into what you think is not your refrigerator. It is the basic electronic system for all GE Electronically controlled Refrigerators. Yes, you will see differences as is with every different brand manual I have. When ready to talk with me just call. I will send any other information through e-mail or my websites. My e-mail is also on the top of my website and near bottom and you will need to get it by going through Capsha, I will be expecting your call once you are ready, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I think my husband punctured the interior (released the freon?) when he was defrosting (chipping away at ice. Can this be fixed?

It can be fixed, but not by your husband, and I say that assuming he is not EPA certified in refrigerant handling. This is definitely a major repair, one that should not be attempted by the average DIYer. What needs to be done, is to evacuate what refrigerant is still in the system, replacing the evaporator coil that your husband punctured as well as the gas dryer, putting the system in a vacuum to check for any leaks, dehydrating the system, and then adding the exact amount of refrigerant for your model. Now this is a very very basic procedure, ive left out many critical and necessary steps, but it is just an idea of the refrigerator repair that is required for your problem. I hate to say it, but you've just learned a very expensive lesson on how not to defrost your freezer.

Control panel lighs blink and ice door opens and shuts. The fridge and freezer is still cold. I called Maytag and they are sending me a new circuit board. The local Maytag store owner told me to...

i just called Maytag (now Whirlpool) @1-800-253-1301.  They are shipping me a free control panel and are also paying for a certified installer to come to my home to do the exchange.  
I told them when I called that I learned from the internet that it was a quality issue and they did not disagree.  They processed the order and offered the installation without me asking.  
My refrigerator is out of warranty so they covered it as a quality issue.  We enjoy our refrigerator and have not had any other problems accept when we first received it and someone had to come and adjust the icemaker.  Yes the icemaker is small by some standards but it meets our needs. When we need lots of ice, for guests we just buy a bag for less than a buck.  
Great service response from Maytag.  Thanks.
