are you sure buzz sounds not comming from behind ref.? pull ref away from wall and listen down near the bottom I think the sound your hearing is compressor relay. let me know Bryan

There is a black box plugged into the white box. the white box has 3 wires one blue and 2 white-is the relay the white box or the black box, and what will we have to do if it is the compressor relay
Expert:  Bryan replied 8 years ago.

Customer: replied 8 years ago.

this is the replacement relay for this model click here http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=1159182&PPStack=1 it probably doesnt look like yours , is this ref. over five years old? if its not you may want to have a tech do this because if its compressor thats bad and its under five years old the compressor should be covered under warranty, but not relay its electrical but if you replace this and the compressor is bad then they may try to void your warranty, let me know Bryan
