NO COMP YET
Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
on the side of the compressor theres a rely thats plugged on to it. you need to check that. it will look like one of the ones in this picture, it may be the small brown one in the left bottom corner of the picture. remove it and shake it. unplug the refrigerator first. if it rattles it bad.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
OK DID IT , IT SOUNDS LIKE IT RATTLES. AND IT CLICKED BUT THECOMP IS STILL OFF
Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
okay, the relay is bad. thats what starts the compressor, you will need to replace it before this will run again unfortunately. this comes in a kit because they used a lot of different relays in these refrigerators so you need to order the kit. heres a link. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Start-Device/8201786/1177466?modelNumber=ED5FTGXKQ00?RCAID=1000065 click that blue link to order. good job. sorry we couldn't get it running again today but it will need the relay. you can put it back on and it may start once in a while but it may not. thats the best I can do, thanks , the only thing I ask of you is to please rate me with one of the top 3 ratings. If there is anything else I can help you with today just let me know. You can continue asking questions for as long as you like even after you rate me. Click the continue conversation link if you would like to continue this conversation. If you are done rather than rating me with a 1 or 2 smiley faces please use the (continue conversation) link and tell me what else I can do or what else you would like to know so that I can get you that information so I can improve my customer satisfaction rating. You may receive an email with my answer if so please sign back in and accept on the site itself. Its the only way I get paid for helping you. thank you and best wishes , Bryan
