Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
Is the fan next to the compressor running? And is the compressor getting warm? Do you hear the compressor kick on and off?
OK so if the fan next to the compressor is on and running, the refrigerators thermostat and control board are working and the unit is trying to cool. The same power wire that powers the fan next to the compressor also sends power to the compressor so you know the compressor is getting power. Unfortunately that means that the compressor has just failed or the relay start kit is bad. It sounds like you already replaced the start kit which means that the only option left is a bad compressor. That's not something you can fix yourself I'm sorry to say. It would require a technician to replace the compressor and the cost of a new compressor is about $650 or so. I'm very sorry about the bad news.
