    Thanks to all that helped, I was from the comments of a similar

    problem, able to assertain that the starter device was the culprit.

    After looking closer I could see that it just unplugged from a 3 pt

    terminal, like an old T.V. tube. I pluged in the old (piggy-back) capacitor, and the wire harness clip , plugged in the starter device to the compressor the fridge and turned it on and it worked perfectly, problem solved!! thanks again the forum was very helpful, and saved a service call.

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.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Model # FRS23R4A - Not cooling

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  sears.com.
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?

Describe your Kenmore 53652 / 53654 / 53659 Side by Side Refrigerator Unit is not cooling. Stopped working after power outage


Kenmore Coldspot 106.53652300
I just fixed my neighbors fridge that suffered from a power surge. She explained that she smelt a burning smell in the kitchen and the next day the fridge and freezer were not cold. Of course she did not share the burnt smell part until after I discovered the starter relay and the capacitor were burnt on the compressor. She purchased the new starter kit and capacitor from a local supply company and while installing them I discovered the compressor fan was not running which also meant the compressor was not getting any power. I removed the screws that held the control panel on the fridge side (right side) and inspected the circuit board which I discovered a burnt trace on the board for the compressor control relay. I fixed the board by soldering a piece of solid core wire across it and it works great!
Make sure you shop around for your parts. The BIG local supplier here in Tulsa wanted $65 for the starter kit and $65 for the capacitor. We shopped around and found another supplier in Tulsa that sold them for $25 each and they were FSP parts!

I also have the same refrigerator model 106.56566400 and periodically when the power goes off in the house the refrigerator & freezer will stop cooling. Try pushing the on/off button located inside the refrigerator to the left of the digital temperature controls. Hold the button down, this turns the unit off, then press it again to turn it back on. This basically resets the refrigerator, and most of the time works to get the refrigerator cooling again. Try this first before calling a repair man.
