Default Not cooling, but fan running, light working and clicking
Model Number: BX21V1W   Brand: Amana   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My fridge and freezer are not cooling. The light inside the fridge works and the fan is running. Cool(ish) air is coming in through the freezer (it is a bottom freezer unit). Every few seconds, I hear a clicking noise. I shook the fridge (in frustration!!) and for about 20 hours, it started working again, but now is back to not cooling- the ice that froze during that time period has now melted again.

If it is the relay, I would pay someone to fix it or try myself. If it is the compressor, I think it is time for a new unit. The problem is that every service wants to charge $75-100 just to come look at it.

Suggestions???

Hi.

Pull out the fridge, get to the compressor, remove the old relay overload and shake it. If that rattles - get a new start components Part number: 12555902
