My Kenmore side by side stopped cooling

HI-
My 4 yr old kenmore stopped cooling. The fan turns on and the compressor clicks on every 3 minutes. Do you think that is the relay maybe or motor starter?
Thx for your help,
Danielle

    I am experiencing a similar problem. lots of "clicking" but not cooling both freezer and fridge.

    Both freezer and refrigerator not cooling. Condenser is warm and the fan is operable. Could it be the start relay?

I think your compressor has given up the ghost. Yes it is possible that it could be a relay problem but not likely.

Kenmore refrigerator stopped cooling 6 days ago and started working again 2 days later but not very cold.Stopped cooling again 2 days ago.Now it is frosted up in the back of the freezer,What could cause...


There are several things that could be causing this. Your compressor could be going bad. Your freon is low. Think of your refrigerator as a air conditioner. Pull it out and vacuum all the dust from your filters, make sure the water is draining properly and not clogged up. Is your unit still under warranty. How old is your unit. Try this. Unplug the unit for about 5-10 minutes, this will give it enough time for the compressor to cool down. Plug it back in and listen for the compressor to kick on. That's the big black round thing at the bottom in the back of your refrigerator. Listen to it and what the sound is, does it click when it turns on, does it shudder when it turns on. Let me know the sound. By unplugging the unit and doing this the compressor should kick on in 1-3 minutes after plugging it back in. If your unit is over 8 years old you might consider another one. Check out craigslist, as you can get some great deals. Let me know if I can help you further.

Kenmore room air cond fan runs, no cool. checked


if the fan motor is on but the compressor is not : if the compressor has correct voltage up to the terminals and is not operating, the compressor is bad, if ther is not power to the terminals, the start components may be the culprit, if there is no power to the start componenets then the controller is the issue.

Refrigerator/freezer has stopped cooling


Sounds like you need a new relay for the compressor. Unplug from wall and check the compressor see if realy that is attached to pins on compressor, is burnt.

Fridge not cooling


You'll need to replace the compressor start relay. I use a 3-1 start kit, it will be less technical to get the oem part which is called a potintial start relay it just plgs right in to the compressor with two wires for power that can go either way.

Kenmore refrigerator compressor clicking


Relay on the compressor bad.

Try unpluging for 30 - 45 min until the compressor has cooled down then plug it back in. If it doesn't start replace the relay. Most service techs carry a universal relay and wiil put the relay on, if it starts, your good to go, if not, then the compressor is bad.
