I have a refrigerator with clean coils, no ice or air blockage, and keeping 45 degrees and 5 in freezer on the coldest setting. The compressor sounds normal and shuts off when reaching 45 degrees. I thought it was the thermostat and replaced it twice with no improvements.
Answer Hello Scott,
You should make sure there are no obstructions to the air flow across the condenser coils and the edges of the fan blades are clean. If so, you may want to contact a Freon certified technician to check system pressures as this could be a restriction or a Freon loss.

I have a clicking sound and I ordered the start control do you pry the start control from the compressor?
To remove the start device on the side of the compressor, there is a wire that will go over the top of it. You will grab the wire with a pair of needle nose pliers and disconnect it at the top. Once disconnected you can simply pull the start relay off. It may be necessary to wiggle it around just a little while pulling to get it off.
