Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator
The problem I have been having is the compressor would start by making some louder than normal sounds and then click off. The compressor would be hot to the touch and the compressor fan is running. Eventually the refer would warm up and begin to defrost. I emptied the fridge/freezer and unplugged. The next day I would plug back in and it would run fine for a month or so and the problem would repeat. Now however the compressor is not even coming on even though the fan is running. The compresssor is at room temp with no sounds or vibrations. Is there a fuse or breaker for the compressor? Is there a wiring diagram that I can see where power for the compressor is originating? Thanks
There may be power to the compressor. You can check it with a volt meter by checking the two electrical leads at their connections.
across the line you should read 120 Volts. This indicated power is there to the compressor and your overload protector may be open. The overload "protector" and "relay" can be ordered from Sears by your model and serial number along with the names of the parts for the compressor.
