Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator
My Kenmore 53652300 refrigerator, suddenly stop make cool.
I unplugged the condenser fan connector so I can hear the compressor
running more clearly. The compressor is started, running, but just running
stops in very short time, 15 ~ 20 seconds, then stopped again.
I can also hear the click sound of the relay action. What might be wrong?
This usually indicates that the compressor is working too hard and drawing too much current. The click that you hear is a safety shut-off. Possible causes of this are numerous and usually require having a professional come in to fix the issue, it can range anywhere from a faulty compressor to a bad start relay.
There is in most cases a temporary fix, it is called a hard start relay/capacitor. It is usually available from an appliance parts retailer for around $15 to $20. Installation instructions are included, just be sure to unplug your refrigerator first and make sure that someone following you can repair from where you left off. This relay assembly can normally get you up and running but it should not be used as a permanent fix. This will not correct for a refrigerant leak in the system.
Check your refrigerator owners manual before making any repairs or modifications to your refrigerator, there may be an extended warranty on the sealed system and compressor.
