Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
I unpluged for a few mins it seemed like moter came on a little stronger when i pluged it in, but still isnt getting cold
the only thing moving in back is the fan. compressor isnt hot nor any vibration. no buzzing or clicking,just the fan. no frozen spots.
Roger you need to replace those parts at the side of the compressor. They pull straight off there is nothing holding them on other than the tight fit. Sometimes you need a screwdriver to help work them off. I put an image below with them removed so you could see they are straight pins that hold them on. Be sure the power cord is unplugged.When you go to get these parts the best thing to do is call around to some local appliance repair shops, ask them if they install compressors. If they do that will be the place to go. I do not expect you will get them for free but I can tell you that every time I install a compressor there are always extra of these parts in the box. I have a lot of them laying around and I would expect you would get the best price from someone who does that work. Those parts are the overload and start relay, the clicking is the overload. I know power is present at the overload because the fan is operating and they are wired on the same circuit.If you found my answer satisfactory please login if you are not already logged in and please leave an ok or better rating.

now the fan is not working. all i see on the compressor is a little white box like plugged in and held by pressure clip. is that the part?
I have the white box off but cant get the wires that are plugged into it out. what is the trick, I do not want to force it
