Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to assist you. Okay the snap noise you hear, is it happening on regular intervals about every 2-3 minutes? Is the fan inside the freezer working?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
yes 2 to 3 min intervals ,freezer fan is on
Expert:  Randy replied 2 years ago.
Okay, and the fan next to the compressor is running also correct? I am sorry I should have asked that already.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
yes that fan is on
Expert:  Randy replied 2 years ago.
Okay, that clicking is your compressor trying to start but the relay for it has gone bad to the overload take over and shuts off the power to the compressor so the compressor doesn't get damaged. You need to replace the compressor start relay to correct the issue. Very easy to replace as it just pushes on to the relay. I am sending you a link to a diagram and parts list and the relay (with a new overload built in to it) is #811 on the diagram and you can get it at any appliance part store. I am also sending you a picture of the assembly. I am here for further assistance and thank you for your time and patience, Randy.

Hello Don,

Do you have an ohm meter?

Thanks,
Barry
Customer: replied 2 years ago.


I'm sorry about the responce time . yes i have a meter


 

Expert:  Barry G. replied 2 years ago.

Take a picture of the wiring going to the compressor. Remove the parts the wires go to on the side of the compressor. They pull straight off the pins in the picture below, you can leave the wires attached. Once you have those off this is what to do.

There are 3 pins, name a pin number 1 and set your meter to Rx1 ohms. Rotate through all 3 pins just like below. One probe from the meter to (pin1 and the other to pin3) For example and do all 3 sets just below
1 to 3
1 to 2
2 to 3
Write each one down and let me know what the meter says. At each test, its not important which pin you name pin 1, you do that so you can keep track of the measurements and seperate them.

The next test is each pin to a good frame ground with the same ohm Rx1 setting. One probe to each pin one at at time and the other probe from the meter to a clean frame unpainted piece of metal. What are the readings?

Let me know what you find.

Barry
