Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
is the condenser fan running next to the compressor ? you wouldn't have clogged the evaporator by blowing the dust out from underneath. did you put the cover back on in the back of the refrigerator after cleaning this ?
Yes the fan is running...not all of the time it acts as if its cycling. Runs for a few minutes and back off. Yes the cover is back on.
No buzz or noticeable click...(meaning not sure if its a click...if so, its not very loud) sounds pretty normal when its starts up.
Sorry for the delay my funds were stopped for your help.
So I'll need to double check but my feel is the compressor and fan come on together and stay on for a little while then shuts back off together.
Making sure you got this...and is it still the relay? if so, could I have damaged that while vacuuming?
(FAN & Compressor cycle every 10 minutes (10 on 10 off) The Air coming into the Fridg side seems to be not as strong, while the freezer side blows well.)
Yeah the damper is not a closeable one. It stays open. So I've looked at these diagrams yesterday...is there any special feature/flap/control for the air blowing on each side(Freeze/Fridge) of the unit? and only one fan blows to both sides?
OK...Kids had stuffed some vacuum packed food on the freezer side, I cleared that and feels like I have more air flowing in the fridge now. I did notice some frozen water pellets on the back near the bottom where the packages were in the freeze. Could all of the blocked air been the cause or do you think the the relay is an issue still?
Thanks for your help, time and efforts Bryan.
The unit has been running now for over 25 minutes straight.
Of all things I should of known with my AC experience about blockage... you can hear some growning going on now as the unit lessons the freeze on the coils.
I'll let you know either way...do I have a time limit on this? Don't want to spend another $38 bucks.... :-)

Hi Bryon, the Fridge is back to its 10 minute cycling. I did order the relay and will get it on Wednesday.The back of the freezer still has the ice pellets near the bottom above the fan vent. It ran for about 45 minutes and returned to its cycles. Temp in the fridge is still at 42-44f. I did remove a few items from the freezer to allow some better air flow.
The coils have looked like this since 6:30am today...checked every 3 hours. (I got the relay today...have not put it in)

it wouldn't hurt to install the relay. in fact it may solve the problem altogether. if the compressor isn't running all the time or is shutting off to soon because of the relay that may be the issue. its seems logical at this point.
Hi Bryan, the refrigerator is now fixed. It was the thermostat. I replaced the control board too...probably didn't need though. I researched a bit more on the Internet and found other technicians that pointed to that immediately. Just wanted you to know.
