Question and Answers

Q:

Why won't this refrigerator get cold enough?

A:

If the evaporator motor is not running and there is no frost accumulation to block the fan blade, the most likely problem will be a failed motor. If the compressor is running, it means the thermostat is closed, which also sends voltage directly to the motor. If you notice an accumulation of frost in the freezer, it could be because the motor is not running or it could be due to a defrost problem. This type of situation will prevent the refrigerator from cooling properly. To determine for sure if the motor has failed, a voltage check will need to be made. A technician may be needed to make this check. If you need more assistance, you can resubmit your question with more details.

Q:

Why would this refrigerator stop cooling and make a clicking noise?

A:

The clicking sound is coming from the compressor overload. When it opens, it prevents any voltage from getting to the compressor and makes this type of sound. This is a safety switch to protect the compressor when it has a hard time starting. The compressor could have a problem if the start kit is weak or if it's locked (stuck). A technician will be required to make these checks. Another possibility without having a technician check this, will be to chance replacing the relay/overload # 61005518 and capacitor # 65889-4. If the compressor still won't run with these parts installed, it will have to be replaced. These parts are available at Sears PartsDirect . If you need more assistance, you can resubmit your question with more details.
