Ohhhh nooo hope its not the compressor... Take off back panel and see if your condenser fan is running...also check if compressor is running....if its clicking out may only be the compressor start relay which is cheap to fix...good luck...

I have a Jenn Air side by side refrigerator that started making a humming and clicking sound last night and this morning it stopped cooling on both sides. What could it be?

Buzzing/humming noise with jenn-air bottom freezer


i have this problem too on my GE Profile. A youtube video seems to suggest a compressor problem. Turn off the fridge for a while and let it cool down and try again? I tried but to no avail. Would someone answer this? Please :)

Buzzing from lower area - replaced relay and cap - not freezing - staying cold but not freezing - Synptom: Click -humming for 15 sec-click cycles like that every 5 minutes Compressor is warm to Hot - fan...


If the defrost cycle was stuck on then the compressor would not be humming trying to start. You may have a shorted compressor. Especially if its a frigidaire they are known to have the worst compressors. You can use a meter to check your compressor windings. You can check for a short by scratching the paint off the compressor and checking from each terminal to the bare metal on the compressor. If you have continuity then its shorted. Also check continuity from each pair of pins on the compressor. Good Luck _MJ_

Jenn-air JCD2389DES stopped cooling in both the refrigerator and freezer. I hear a click sound every now and then. It sounds like it is clicking on but then nothing happens. The clicking sound is coming...


2 things may cause this condition.

1. The relay and overload which starts the compressor has failed.
This is an easy fix.

2. The compressor has failed.
The compressor can be replaced and is worth doing if the unit is in good shape.

Compressor start relay - white plastic part - sitting right on the compressor, disconnect it shake it - u'll here it if it's damaged. :)

Jenn Air bottom freezer refrigerator not cooling properly,


This may be your compressor. You'll probably need a hard start kit put ont he compressor if it's not still under warranty. I hope this helps you out!

Jenn-Aire Refrigerator Shutting Down


sounds as if the control board has gone bad unless you have an extended warranty that you purchased extra this will probably not be covered, but check with jenn-aire to be sure. I dont think I would worry about a 3rd compressor being bad but I would unplug the unit to prevent any further damage to it. good luck peyton
