Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello from JA My name is Woody. I will be glad to assist you today. I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 35 Years, and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 80,000 internet repairs under my belt.
Can I please have the Full model number of the unit to better assist you ?
Ok so you have a under counter icemaker, what is it doing or not doing?
Yes but I have more then just one customer that I`m assisting today.
If it was a relay or overload the compressor would not be running.
If the unit is making ice the compressor will be warm. the refrigerant is removing the heat from the water to make it colder and colder till it freezes.
Can you move the compressor around pressing on it to make the noise go away or to change the sound of it?
no the compressor not the relay!! if you move it around can you change the tone of the noise?
And you hear this noise no matter what the unit is doing ,as long as the compressor is running?
does the noise seem to be coming from the relay and overload cover on the compressor?
ok and have you eliminated the Condenser fan to rule it out?
ok I do not think replacing the relay will do nothing but if you want to that is fine.
Do you need the part number for it so you can order it ?
And if you run a clean cycle now does it make the noise?
ok that is up to you!
But the compressor runs during a clean cycle so if it is a compressor issue then it should be doing it in the clean cycle also !
