Question about Refrigerators
But is the compressor starting to run, when you power on the refrigerator.If compressor is not running, then it can be faulty compressor relay or faulty compressor.In some cases, its seen that weak compressor stops running when it gets got.Check power at the compressor and relay with meter.By pass the relay by directly connecting compressor to the mains.The actual connection is as follows.The wire from power cord wire goes to compressor relay, then from relay the wire goes to compressor.So instead of that you remove the relay and directly connect wire from compressor to the power cord wire, then start the refrigerator and see.If it runs, that means relay is short and needs to be replaced.But if relay is by passed and still compressor is not running then its faulty compressor and it has to be replaced.Replacing compressor is not easy task.It has to be checked by power pressure tool after its fitted.This test is done to check refrigerant pressure in the compressor.If refrigerant pressure is not exact then with new compressor also your unit will not cool.So it has to be done by proper compressor/ac repair tech, they have this testing tools.---

Hello friend, thanks for the post!
Based off the information you have provided your compressor can be hot to the touch because it is working to help cool down your refrigerator. I would allow it the opportunity to maintain proper temperature inside of your appliance before it stops running. I hope this is helpful. -Matt
