Question:

After hurricane irma, plugged refrig back in after power restored. No cooling. Everything is working, lights, fan, etc. Compressor is hot but not running. How does one check the starting capacitor and the starting kit device. Or is the starting device working since the compressor is getting voltage as it is hot to touch?

Murray for model number ED5FHEXMS10
Answer:

Hi Murray, Thank you for your inquiry. To verify which part is causing the issue you will need to use a multimeter to check the continuity of each part. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

Compressor not coming on at all. Should i be able to measure voltage on the power connector that plugs into the compressor start module? 2 wires, red and white, i get no voltage there? Everything else seem to have power, inside light, lights on front freezer door will come on when switched to on. I have continuity on the module when testing with meter, just seems no power is getting to it.

Anthony for model number IS25AGXRQ00
Answer:

Hello Anthony, thank you for contacting us. This sounds like its going to be either the start device or the capacitor on the compressor. It needs these parts to help boost the power to start up. The start device and the capacitor can be tested with a multi-meter to determine which is at fault. Hope this helps!

Clicking from underneath the fridge, and compressor engaging only intermittently

I diagnosed the problem as a bad relay. I detached the two sets of wires leading to the relay and compressor, then pulled the relay off the compressor. It rattled and small bits of detritus fell out from inside of the relay. The new relay came the next day. It did not rattle. It was identical and I simply did the reverse to reinstall.

No cooling

I noticed the fan was running but not the compressor, they are wired in series meaning the compressor should also have power and you should hear the compressor. Could not hear compressor coming on, removed the white relay attached to the side of the compressor and could hear loose pieces shaking in relay. Ordered new relay and plugged it in, took less than five minutes. Very Easy. Thank you Partsselect

Was not cooling

I unscrewed the bottom of the back panel and heard a clicking noise from the compressor starter. it was held in by a clip, flipped it to the side pulled the starter off and disconnected the wire harness. pushed the new one in reconnected it . And it worked. I have very little experience and it was very easy.

Fridge stoped cooling

Please read stories that apply to you on this web page, cause it can help you save big bucks.
My fridge is about 2 yrs old and one morning it simply stopped cooling. I heard the clicking noise coming from the back bottom of the fridge as if condenser wanted to start up. Pulled the fridge out took the back cover off and heard that same noise coming from the little black box ( start-device) attached to condenser. Went on this same web page and found exact same device for $49 whereas if I did not know much about electronic repairs, traditionally the repair guy would have had charge me at least couple hundreds. So do it here first, it wont cost you much.
Replacing this part is so simple, pull the device out away from condenser by hand as if you were unplugging an extension cord and plug the new start-dev in. SIMPLE. Make sure to take pic with ur phone to wire it back properly. (ONLY 2 WIRES)

Refrigerator and freezer not cold

I removed the back panel off the fridge and removed the old start relay device by simply unplugging it from the compressor. I had to detatch two wires and a capacitor from the device. The old start relay was definitely bad and you could tell by shaking it. Plugged in the new start relay device, reattached the wires and capacitor and was done. Fridge is perfect now! Very simple!

Compressor clicking on and off, not cooling

After unplugging the appliance I removed acess cover on back of fridge with a screwdriver, pulled the overload start device straight off the compressor, unplugged the red/ white factory pre-terminated conductors and replaced the bad start device. Took about 2 minutes. You must remove as much of the dust and lint from condenser element to keep this from happening again since heat will build up and fry the overload again.

Refrigerator quit cooling at all.

I removed the cover for the lower part of the refrigerator to inspect the wiring and motor. I removed the switch and removed the wiring from it. The wiring just plugs in. When the new switch arrived, I just reinstalled it to the side of the motor and the refrigerator has been working fine ever since.

My side by side regrigerator completely stop working

I noticed that everytime I plug the refrigerator cord into to the wall outlet it would trip the shock prevention safety switch on the wall outlet. I came to the conclusion that something was blocking the electrical current to flow to the compressor. I figured if I changed the the part attached to the compressor then the electricity would be able to make a complete circuit to the compressor. so I got the part # from the old part and I researched it through your company. You had the part in stock. I ordered it and it was at my door the next day. It worked extremely well. I proudly can say I did it myself and most importantly I don't need a new refrigerator and I save a lot of money. thanks I will definitely use your company in the future. Ray
