Question about Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator
Side by side does't cool either side, since it clicks, but never starts the compressor. Can some one assit in how to remove this part.
SOURCE: Frigidaire side by side
The compressor sounds like the start device went bad. When that happens there is the "click" during trying to start, but since it can't the compressor overheats in time and then the thermal overload opens to protect it from overheating. Take the back lower panel off the refer and see if the compressor is really hot to the touch. If you have a little white colored box on the left side of the compressor pull it off and shake it... if it rattles and debris falls out you know it's bad. There is a kit that replaces it and it's real easy to install yourself. If you have a compressor that has a little blue indian head symbol on it however... your compressor is toast. Once they overheat they're done. If you have any other brand name you should be OK with a simple start device change out.

if compressor is hot that means comp- is trying to start but the relay /overload is bad allow comp to cool down unplug from wall and replace with exact type 1/2hp 1/4hp 1/3hp etc make sure all wireing is correct and unplug before starting that model may or may not have a run or start capacitor replace it also..

wihtout replacing the relay there really isnt any way to tell if its the compressor or the relay. the relay is veyr inexpensive in comparison to the compressor usually less than 70 bucks. and the best part is you can replace it yourself as opposed to paying a service company. this is the part number 218721113 and it prices at 38 dollars thru
once you replace the part if the compressor starts you should be ok. if it doesnt start then you will need to call a service company to replae the compressor or look at replaing the refrig. if the unit is less than 5 years old it may be under warranty for the compressor so check into that first. if I can be of further assistance dont hesitate to ask. thanks Peyton

Not good news, it sounds like a compressor problem. Vacuum clean everthing you can safely get to in order to make it eaiser for the repair guy, (hopefully to save money). How old is the fridge?
