Have magic chef mccf5wbx freezer compressor runs but shuts off in 15 seconds

Check condensor not clogged up, fan working etc. If all ok, try new capacitor and relay. If all else fails, replace freezer (compressor replacement is costly)

A/c blows cool air, compressor cycles on and off constantly. Perssure checks good

You may have cold air, but the system is low on charge, give it time and the air temp at the registers will rise and the compressor stop working when the charge gets to low.

Compressor starts and runs for 15 seconds and stops. tested capacitor 15 mfd .i can hear the start relay open on start up and compressor stops . can it be the relay.

Its possible to be the relay, but if you have access to an amp meter I would see what the rating for your compressor is, it will be on a tag on the compressor, and see if its drawing too much or too little. That way you know if the compressor is bad. I've seen too many times on that particular brand techs change the relay just have the compressor fail two weeks later.

All of a sudden our refrigerator freezer and refrigerator stopped freezing and cooling.. The fan is working, cleaned the coils, but when the compressor kicks on it only runs for about 10-15 seconds before...

UNPLUG and remove the compressor relay...if it rattles when you shake it..its bad, if not, it could be the takes alot of specialized training and tools and material to replace a compressor. Its not a job that can be done by the average person..

replace the ptc overload relay on the compressor body,it merely unplugs and a new replacement plugs in,available from any appliance parts distributor,they get weak and will not stay "latched" to keep the compressor powered due to high heat and current draw after so long

Whirlpool refrigerator

you can try replacing the overload relay mounted onthe side of the compressor ( kit number 4387835) sounds like its gone bad, trying to start yor compressor, but tripping off on overload.
