Default Refrigerator not cooling, fan works, compressor is hot
Model Number: PLHS67EESB4   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My problem appears similar to a number of previous threads: Fridge has power, fan runs, but cooling is not happening, and the the compressor appears to be very hot - hard to tell if it is running and not working or just not running. I pulled the relay and metered the three pins - two on top, one on the bottom:

Across the two top pins we measured 9 ohms

The bottom pin to the "interior" top pin measured 3.7 ohms

The bottom pin to the "exterior" top pin measured 5.7 ohms

So - do I replace the relay? the relay and the capacitor? or do I have a bad compressor?

Thanks in advance.
