Question and Answers

Q:

What would cause the relay (key#15) to keep going off and on?

A:

Generally when a compressor won't start the compressor is either locked up or a bad start relay.

The relay (key#15) is actually a solid state start device that energizes the start winding momentarily until the compressor starts and runs, and then the start relay removes the start voltage to the compressor. The clicking noise is the overload kicking out because the compressor is not able to start and it's pulling excessive amperage.

If the compressor will start after leaving the refrigerator unplugged for 30 minutes and then a short time later it starts the clicking noise, check to see if the condenser fan is running. If the condenser fan motor is not running the high head pressures will cause the overload to shut off the compressor until the sealed system pressures equalize and the overload resets.

I recommend calling a service technician to properly diagnose the failure and give you an estimate of repair.
