Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a similar problem in that the refrigerator & freezer no longer are cold, the compressor is not running. I replaced a 3 in 1 starter relay that was installed 2 years ago by a service company when the original relay failed, with a new OEM relay, but that didn't fix the problem. I think the compressor may be dead, but when I check the voltage in the wires leading to the relay I'm not getting a reading on my Ohm meter, so it appears that no electricity is even getting to the relay. Any suggestions on what might be the problem?
Check you defrost timer and rotate the clutch screw in a clockwise direction slowly. If that doesn't start it try the cold control and check across the wires to see it there is continuity. If it reads open then you have a bad control. If the first item made it run from the timer you need a new timer.
