Have power but compressor no work


Tried unplug,replug it back in half or an hour later.Most of the time the the compressor will reset and kick in than it work again.This is a temp solution only,because most of the compressors in frig have this intermittent problems will died again because of over heat the design 24/7 plugin doesn't help especially continue of power to it.Replaced the frig if it more than ten years or replaced the compressor if less.

The knocking noise is coming from inside the compressor unit,it lasts for aboat 5 to 10 seconds,sometimes a full minute.fridge is 5 years old.had this problem for the last year.


Does it do it on start up of the compressor? Sounds like the springs that hold the rotor inside the compressor are getting weak and letting the rotor touch the side of the compressor..... till it comes up to speed and levels out.... There is nothing that you can do except replace the compressor.... I would call the dealer or who ever you purchased it from and check if the compressor is still under Warranty.... If may last a long time but it could lock up tommorow too you never know...... Hope this sheds some light on the problem...

Refridgerator compressor starts and stops, its a ten year old superba from kitchenaid. i want to think its a relay but if its the compressor, is it going to break the bank to fix?


check to see if the compressor is bad by putting your meter on the ohm setting. check each terminal togther and then also to ground if it beaps when it goes to ground it is a bad compressor. BUT it should beap when you check each termianl togerther. there is three leads one is start one is run and one is common. if you have contunity between these it is a good compressor. i

Whirlpool side-by-side won't get cold, compressor clicks on-off.


Sounds like the start relay OR the compressor is no good. Have a service tech look at it, because there may be a capacitor in the circuit, which could be dangerous for you to fool with.
