The fresh food and freezer are not cooling. The fan comes on immediately but I'm not hearing any noise from the compressor. The pins on the compressor are testing properly and the overload relay does spike then open. Much like everyone else in the forum except I am not getting any click or buzz from the compressor when powered up. does this point more to start relay or compressor? Thanks.
Answer Hello Steve,
This can point to either the start relay or the compressor because a bad compressor will shoot a new relay. The best way to figure which component is at fault is by replacing the start relay. If the compressor is at fault, the new relay will either never start the compressor, or it will only last a day or so. If it is the relay at fault, the problem is solved. If it isn't, considering the cost of a sealed system repair by a certified technician, you may want to consider a new unit.
