do you hear any clicking or buzzing comming from the compressor? is the compressor cold or warm?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
the fan runs, the air coming out in both the freezer and refrigerator is slightly cool. the is water underneath, i also heard water dripping after i moved the unit. i don't hear the compressor running.

ok can you unplug the refrigerator and on the side of the compressor there is a relay, take the relay off and shake it if it rattles its bad, also I cant get the model to come up can you recheck the #? thanks Bryan

is the picture two parts or two views of the same part?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

you asked earlier if the compressor is hot, it is. i took a piece of the side of the compressor, it has a relay and a component that the relay plugs into. the relay doesn't rattle when shook but the other component does. it sounds like something is broken inside it.
