LD451EGL no water extraction


Apparently, the fans are running, but the compressor has shut down. It could be a failed compressor, or the charge in the system could have leaked out causing the compressor to shut down.

Compressor clutch not engaging


To locate the relay follow the wire from the clutch and you will find it. Do the engine fans come on when you turn on the AC? If they don't then you either have a bad thermostat (located by the evaporator) under the glove box or your AC system could be overcharged. There is a high pressure switch that will kill the compressor if it goes over 300 psi. If it comes on momentarily then shuts off it is probably overcharged.

Ac unit runs, inside blower shuts off after 2 mins, compressor continues to run, t-stat still calling for cool


My central AC unit decided to stop on the hottest day of the year. It would start and run normally for a few minutes and then the blower would shut off. After checking the breakers, thermostat and overflow shut off (did not have one) I saw something about a blower motor capacitor. This was easy to get to and replace and my last hope before waiting for someone to come fix it. The capacitor cost $4.04 with tax and had my AC working again. Needless to say I was beyond happy. I hope this can help others with a similar problem.

A/C blows good cold air and everything works as it should, however when I turn the A/C on (doesn't matter what fan speed) I hear a constant clicking/ticking noise coming from what sounds like a fan


What you are most likely hearing is the compressor kicking on/off. The constant kicking could be a sign that there's insufficient refrigerant to keep the compressor running continuously without shutting on/off. Eventually, the compressor won't kick on at all, a safety feature designed to prevent doing damage to a compressor that's undercharged. Have the AC system checked.

ED5NHGXMQ00 stopped working overnight. Ice maker


Clicking could be a bad starter relay if the noise is coming from the back under the unit where the compressor is. check it here Check your compressor relay- http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/check/compressorrelay.php
The clicking could be coming from a fan, one of which is near the compressor under the unit and another is in the freezer behind the rear cover inside.
The defrost timer could be clicking. This sound would come from the fridge.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat.
You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Compressor keeps shutting off after 30mins or so


The system may be going into cool down mode or thermal over load if the temperature is 104 degrees fahrenheit or above since the compressor will shut down if the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.This could also be from low oil in the compressor.
