Default Amana fridge tripped breaker- no cooling
Model Number: ASD2328HES   Brand: Amana   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Sons Amana side by side fridge tripped breaker, upon reset neither freezer or fridge cool, the compressor does not start or make noise. I shouldnt be looking at this but of course I am. Found a universal type powerstart relay HS410 from Aspon Mfg installed (son did not buy fridge new) with the OEM run capacitor, the main control board at top front of fridge was burnt on back side and blue wire running from board connector to main fridge harness was badly melted. Replaced the comp start device with OEM part, replaced the main control board and replaced blue wire from board to fridge harness. Compressor still does not turn on, fan in upper part of fridge is working and when first powered up it sounded as if a relay in this fan area was clicking on and off. Can you advise? Thank you.

Hello,

You may want to start the troubleshooting from testing the compressor. Just follow the instructions from one of our previous threads: GE refrigerator just clicks but does not cool

Post the results.

Used a DVOM at the 3 compressor terminals, every test showed 0.4 to 0.6 ohms between terminals, also same result when testing from any terminal to ground. I did experience some fluctuation with readings as meter might show 0 then rise but would settle at readings noted. I presume this indicates windings are toast?

If you are sure your meter is good and you did everything right then looks like the compressor is bad.
