If Klixon relay attached to my compressor rattles, is it definitely no goad?


If the relay was faulty, the compressor would not start when cold. To test the relay put a continuity meter in the 2 pins for common and start. there should be no reading. Turn it upside down there should be continuity. If there is a capacitor attached to the relay as well, change it as it may be failing. Apart from these, check all else is working ok, particularly the condenser fan and gas level. if all else is ok, the compressor is overheating and siezing and will need replacing.

Amana ABB222DE is the overload/capacitor the same thing as the compressor relay? I just had the compressor relay replaced in amana bottom mount. Frig cools fine but every 2 days or so buzzing noise...


I have been doing refrigeration for over 30 years and I have never seen a compressor with a chip inside of it. Have you tried cleaning the condensor coils? I almost sounds like you have a weak start capacitor. Let me know if i can help you any futher.

Frigidaire Side By Side Not Cooling


That sounds like the start relay is buzzing. Unplug and lets check the compressor to see how hot and if too hot to hold your hand on the top of compressor we need to leave it unplugged until we find out if the start relay, start capacitor, overload or if the condenser fan stops after running a short while.

Frig. is 5 years old - Not cooling - Buzzing clicking sound


Sounds like the compressor or start relay have went out.
For any recall info you would need to give the full model and serial to the Maytag.

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

Compressor intermittently starts, loud humming when it doesn't


get a 3 and 1 relay that will help boost the start windings on the compresor and help it start-up. get the one for 1/2 hp and you shoiuld be good to go.

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!

Frig and feezer stopped working


It sounds like the overload and relay on the compressor.If the problem isn't that then you need a compressor.
