It sounds like the compressor relay mounted to the side of the compressor is out. Very common problem on these units. The replacement relay is supposed to be stronger and less likely to give a problem. Remove the relay and shake it. If you hear it rattling inside it is definately burned out.
Do not replace it with a 3 in 1 or kickstart relay. It will work fine for a few months and burn the compressor out. Get the correct replacement part.
Post back to let me know what you find.

I have a Whirlpool refrigerator with a EGZ 90HLP Compressor. Can I replace the compressor with EGY 90HLP?


talk with an accredited refrigerant specialist shop as there could be differences as to the gas that each uses or the out put of the gas requirements
It could be that one is a later version than the other but if you fit one in place of the other and it is wrong , there could be costly results

Quick reference to your compressor says that it is a 120 V powered regular compressor.

It might be simple as starting device failure on compressor. Either capacitor or relay. Worst case compressor gone. Still not crazy expensive compared to a DC powered compressor.

Shut off the fridge (pull the plug) to prevent further damage to compressor and call a local service guy if you want to save the fridge.

I purchased an Amana refrigerator that has been making a humming noise and will not keep food cold or frozen. what' wrong? The model # is ABB1924DEB, and I purchsed it in 2005. is it included in their...


The recall was for units that had embraco compressors. the relay would burn up and not start the comperssor. (hum and click) some amanas had tecumseh compressors. They would just scize up and not run (hum and click)No recall. remove the back cover and see what name is on your compressor. If its hot and trying to start, Embraco needs new relay, Tecumseh needs to be replaced with a embraco compressor.
