Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the cleaning the coils. Now, it would be very unusual to have to clean inside the coils unless, they were packed. Normally this will only occur if there are pets in the house or if there is a lot of dust in the area. Usually only the front section will need to be cleaned. However, it you would like to clean inside the coils, the best method will be to use air pressure and blow the coils out. If your vacuum cleaner has a reverse to blow the air out, this works well. In this case, you can pull the unit away from the wall, disconnect the power and remove the back panel cover. Now, you will be able to access, the coils and can blow through them. Be prepared in this case for dust to fly out. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Hi Scott. Much thanks for your response. We do have pets but the buildup of dust inside the coil structure is not terrible. I just like to keep up with PM on my equipment and thought it would be good to get the dust off the coils. I posted this question just to be sure there was not some specialty tool out there for cleaning this type of condenser coil layout. I thought about using a compressor to blow the dust off but didn't because I was worried about blowing dust all over the kitchen (which my wife would definitely not like.) Do you think that setting up a vacuum hose on the back side of the fridge would be sufficient to capture the dust as it blows through from the front? I'm game to try it but don't want to make a dusty mess in the process.

A:

Ed, that would really be hard to say. It would probably depend on how much dust comes out. I have not heard of anybody doing this before but it would be worth a try.

I know it's frustrating when the refrigerator stops cooling. The information you have received to keep your food from spoiling is good.

This clicking sound from under the unit indicates that either the starting device has failed or the compressor. A technician normally has a kit that he can attach to the compressor, along with an amp probe that will help determine which part has failed. Without the kit and meter there is no way to know for sure. In this case, a chance can be taken and replace the starting device # 8201786 and capacitor # 2169373. If the compressor still won�t start or starts but then quits again, the compressor will need to be replaced. If it runs ok now, the start device was the problem. I hope this will help you.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

How do I remove a burnt start device?

A:

There is no special way to remove the relay if it's welded to the compressor terminal. About all you can do is be very careful and try to work it off, without breaking the terminal off of the compressor. Maybe you can cut if off with a pair of side cutter (diagonal) pliers. If you can get it off, then you will have to try to smooth out the compressor terminal again. Use a small file, which will be difficult or a pair of plier’s works sometimes. Just be careful not to break the terminal off. The start kit # 8201786 and capacitor # 2169373 are both available at Sears PartsDirect .
