Assuming that both freezer and refrigerator temperatures have risen and the humming sound that you heard was followed by a sudden click more than likely the start device on the compressor has gone bad. This is a common problem with all Whirlpool refrigerators (KitchenAid is Whirlpools top of the line product and suffers the same problem).

We just came home and found water on the floor....the freezer had melted and the frig is warm...we threw everything out....we cleaned the dust behind the frig...what do we do next?


Hello,

Do you see anything happening with the refrig. is teh compressor running..do you hear any fan on?? or perhaps every couple of minutes their is humming/buzzing sound floowed by a click??

If you hear nothing at all going on i would suspect the thermostat or the defrost control board is the problem,If ya hear a buzz/click then what would be needed was the relay/overload on the compressor

Reply with what exactly your experiencing and i could help ya narrow it down

Kenmore refrigerator w/warm frig and ok freezer


if there is a warranty it will only be for the seal system. The nois could have been from the ice maker with the plastic raped around it, but I think it could be the start device on the compressor.
Im the owner of a appliance service company and we charge $60.00 to come out and i have heard that others charge more. as far as the freezer being ok, I would put a thermomiter in their and check the temp and make sure its about 0 to 10 Deg F.

the small air flow into the freshfood area is normal.

My bet is still the start device on the compressor.

Here are the unit's issues: 1. freezer won't stay cold and 2, a loud buzzing sound can be heard periodically Any idea what's causing these defects Thank for any help you can offer


Sound's like the start relay overload on the compressor if you hear a humming and a click do not leave plugged in get new relay/overload at you local part store or the compressor winding will burn up and a new frig will occur message me if this is the sound and inconsistent cooling temp b4 you heard the buzzing and click take you model # to the parts store an easier repair which is good....

Kenmore side by side refrigerator is not cooling or freezing


Sure sounds like a PTC relay bad. Take the relay off and shake it to see if you can hear a rattling sound.



The clicking sound is a relay called PTC relay. You need to replace it. First be sure to unplug frig. Remove the cardboard cover that covers most backs of the frig units. Remove the plastic cover that is on the side of compressor. It is held on with a metal clip. Now you should be able to see the relay pry the relay straight off. note the wiring and position of relay. Only three prongs on compressor. Go to a parts house for appliance's and with your make and model number should be able to get a new one. Let me know if you need any more help. ken

I hear a buzz sound for 5 seconds when compressor starts.


The grommet simply holds the start relay in place.  Unless it is torn, you won't need it.  Likely the start relay.  The buzzing is possibly the relay contacts on the start relay burning if the problem occurs when the compressor starts...although it could be the compressor making noise as well.  You might try to "hear it out".  The start relay gives a boost to the compressor by adding in another winding inside to 'kick' the compressor.  
If all you hear is the buzz, you might just wait a bit to see what fails!

I have a frigidaire gallery model plhs267Za side by side fridge, I came home today and everything in the freezer has defrosted, it is making a strange buzzing sound on and off.. can anyone help? thank you


I THINK THE BUZZING IS THE COMPRESSOR TRYING TO START,ALSO LOOK ON THE BACK OF FREEZER AND SEE IF THE WALL HAS FROST ON IT,IF IT DOES YOU HAVE A BAD DEFROST HEATER OR TERMINATOR OR IT IS STUCK IN DEFROST,LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU KIND,ALSO YOU SHOULD UNPLUG IF YOU FIND THE COMPRESSOR IS TRYING TO START BUT WILL NOT,PULL OUT FRIG. AND SEE IF YOU HEAR THE CLICKING SOUND,ALSO PUT HAND ON COMP. TO FEEL IF RUNNING,BECAREFUL MIGHT BE HOT

Maytag Frig. Model MSD2651HEQ not working


Your start relay for the compressor is probably the problem. If ordered, you will most likely receive the relay and overload protector. Replace them both.
