Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
is the freezer also warm ? do you hear any clicking or buzzing about every 3-5 seconds comming from the back near the compressor ? pull the refrigerator away from the wall and listen.
yes freezer is also warm, pulled away from wall and listened closely- no clicking or buzzing, just sounds like running normally.
ok will try not sure I know exactly how to take cover off or which is compressor -I ssume you mean cover on back of machine?
ok cover off.. black compressor like big bowl with quite a few copper tubes in it, is very very hot, vibrating slightly? but not much- cant tell if vibration is from fan as fan is working apparently fine.. thought I may have yeard a click..
okay well it seems like the compressor isn't running. the vibration you feel is most likely from the condenser fan. unplug the refrigerator and on the side of the compressor (black ball) there is a rely assembly (it will look like one of these. ) these just pry off. take it off and shake it. does it rattle ? if so its bad. let me know. thanks Bryan.
unsure how do get off without damage- all bundled on side, metal wire over it? unplugge one wire to it -the other seems protected by wire-pryed and pulled etc afraid I am going to wreck it..took photo not sure how to attach so you can see
got it yes- rattles a lot....
Thanks so much... might I find this today locally where I bought it - electrical supply, hardware store?
