My fridge makes a humming noise and everything in the freezer is starting to thaw out.
The if the humming noise is coming from the compressor then the most likely cause of failure would be a compressor. Normally when a start relay fails, the unit will make a clicking noise because the relay is not engaging. A loud hum or buzz will be a locked rotor.
Why is there a capacitor on the auger motor panel for the ice dispenser that does not have any wires connected to it? There is a white common, a ground, a purple and orange but that's all. Where is the wiring for the capacitor??
Thanks for your time and attention, George
The capacitor should have a wire going to it that is wired into the auger motor itself. The capacitor should have wires coming off of it that internally attach to the motor and the blue and orange wires will attach to the capacitor. The only change to this may be if the auger motor was replaced previously.
