I just repalced the Condenser Fan Motor that went bad and now the frig/freezer will not get cold. I can hear the compressor clicks on then back off again. Do you think it's the Start Relay or does that sound like the compressor itself going bad? Just don't want to keep putting money into this if its more to it than that.
ANSWER Hello Derek,
If the condensor fan failed then the most likely cause of the compressor not starting would be the relay. When the fan stops running it will cause compressor to overheat and shut down prematurely. When this happens the compressor will continually try to turn on. Because it is too hot it won't and will cause the relay to stop working.
