The noise is coming from around the compressor, cant tell which side.
When I put my hand on the top of the compressor it is hot, I can hold my hand on it for 5 or 10 seconds but that's about as long as I can take.
Are you talking about the Capacitor that plugs into the side. It has two prongs that just plug in?
Found it, Thanks.
So is the overload both pieces or what should I replace?
I replaced the Refrigerator Overload this morning but the fridge is still doing the same thing.
Do you have any other suggestions ?
Yes, about every 2 minutes it does the buzzing noise for about 15 seconds and then it just keeps repeating that pattern so I unplugged the fridge so it wouldn't cause further damage if it's not working properly.
I don't know what happened but I plugged it back in after being off for a few hours and it started up and started cooling. The freezer is down to 44 degrees from 64, the fridge is still at 70 where it started but I will give it more time.
I have not herd the loud buzz and it has been on for about 30 min.
I will follow up if it doesn't work properly.
Thanks for the help.
Bad news, it started doing the same thing again today. When we got up this morning the temp was up a little bit from last night and the loud buzzing noise is back. We were gone all day and when we got home the temp was 43 freezer and 58 fridge. I unplugged the fridge for about an hour when I got home then plugged it back in but the buzzing noise is still there.
Any other possibilities ?
OK, thanks for the info.
