Most of this have better tech's then dealers .

Freezer is making an on and off clicking noise. and making lights dim

The compressor is trying to start and going off on overload that is the clicking noise you are hearing.... Also the compressor is drawing high amp which is what is causing the lights to dim.....You have a compressor that has a locked rotor or the start components are bad....

In either case if you can't get a service tech to come out right away you will need to unload the freezer.... because the compressor is not working which is what the freezer uses to make it cold...

When the service tech checks it out he will be able to tell you if he can get it to work by replaceing a capacitor or the Compressor is not repairable.and that he will have to replace it..... which is a major repair.

If the freezer is old I would recommend buying a new one...... You will get a new 5 year warranty on the compressor and if you replace the compressor you will get only a 1 year warranty.....

Compressor will not kick on

About the only thing you can do without a service tech looking at the unit is to check the capacitor. If it is bulging it has blown and you'll need a new one. If you are not comfortable working with electricity I'd take it to someone because, even unplugged, you could get harmed or worse just from handling the capacitor.
If the problem is not the capacitor and the unit is getting power the chances are good the compressor itself has blown and you'll probably be better off buying a new unit rather than bearing the cost of a comrpessor replacement. That choice is, of course, up to you.
Good luck.

Humidifier compressor does not stay on more than 1-2 minutes

Sounds like bad relay on compressor or bad compressor. There is only so far you can go yourself without knowledge in electrical and AC units. Suggest you call a service tech or if you can take it to service cemter near you. Russ

How long do i wait to connect the fridge after I moved

Rule of thumb...if you laid fridge down, stand it up and leave unplugged for same amount of time fridge was laid down. If old fridge, and will not come on after above method, it is possible compressor motor has fallen out of mounting isolators inside compressor case. If so, compressor may hum and get hot but not cool fridge. This means you may need a tech to diagnose further, but probably cannot fix without replacing compressor. Only a qualified tech can diagnose this for sure.

Central air unit only blows warm air , when set on cold

First check to see if your outside unit is working and you can here the compressor running. If the fan runs and the compressor does not you have a problem with the capacitor or wires burnt off terminals. If your not sure you know how to work on this please call a service tech ask for free estimate. If the unit compressor and fan runs you may be out of gas that meanns you have a leak. Either way you need a service tech. You can only go so far without the correct tools to work with. Russ

Somethings aperson cant fix without a service tech. First it could be wire burnt of capacitor going to compressor. Second it could be bad capacitor. There is a dual capacitor on the ouside unit one side says herm that runs the compressor. Turn power off to check to see if wire is burnt of the herm terminal or the C ternminal. Wire burnt off compressor common terminal.. Could be locked up compressor. Unless you know how to troubleshoot unit. You may have to call service tech. Cost if bad cap. is about 100 to 150. But unit wont run without it. Rus

When a compressor is has to start. 1. HAs it been off longer than five minutes. As a service tech when I run on to this problem I install a hard start kit and a time delay. The start kit helps the compressor to start under heavy load condtions. The timer helps the compressor to balance out before tryng to start. Have tech set at 5 minutes. I install hard start kits and time delays on all my change outs. Replace problem will go away. Thanks Rus

Maytag has a recall for compressor relay update possible fire hazard stated on notice,tech comes out and does update,now fridge wont cool. tech states that adaptive defrost timer is bad,he jumped wires...

Check the cold control thermostat for continuity.(off/on switch)
When he bypasses the wires at the board ,he also bypasses the thermostat control.
