If the compressor makes a clicking sound every couple of minutes you could have a bad start device located on the compressor.unplug the fridge,pop off the clip and slide the start device off of the compressor,the easiest way to check it is to just shake it,if it sounds like a piece is rattling around in it then it's cooked and needs to be replaced.part number 218721119 and it's around 40 to 50 dollars.

Frigidaire Side By Side Not Cooling


That sounds like the start relay is buzzing. Unplug and lets check the compressor to see how hot and if too hot to hold your hand on the top of compressor we need to leave it unplugged until we find out if the start relay, start capacitor, overload or if the condenser fan stops after running a short while.

Ref. side stops cooling intermittently. Replaced damper control but problem occurred again three weeks later.


HI,

The most common problem is a bad start relay on the compressor. In rare cases the compressor may be bad. If you are mechanically inclined you can replace the relay yourself for less than 50 dollars. You will need model and serial number off of the unit and order the part by those numbers. if the compressor is bad you will need to hire a good service company

thanks,

GE PSC23NSD SS refrigerator malfunction


Check the cover in back of the freezer for for frost build-up. I think Frost reached the evap fan-blades and stopped it from blowing cold to the ref-side. Contro;s can be confusing. The ON-OFF controls how long the compressor runs, and the other dial how open or choked the airflow from the freezer into the refrigerator. Sometimes it happens that you have that flapper shut and no air is getting moved to the reefer. If frost is on the cover you have dead heater elements on the evap coils or a faulty hi-temp limit switch, which is the disc thingee at the top of the coils. A bad timer also may disallow it going into defrost - think about it. Chris in big bEar
