Start Relay

If the freezer does not get cold and there is a clicking or humming noise, the start relay may be defective. The start relay is a small device mounted to the side of the compressor. It provides power to the start winding of the compressor for a short time and then to the run winding. If the start relay is defective the compressor may run intermittently or not at all and then the freezer does not get cold. The start relay should be replaced if defective.

Compressor

If the freezer does not get cold and the compressor is making a clicking noise every couple of minutes - or a humming noise continuously, the compressor will probably need to be replaced. The compressor is a motor which compresses the refrigerant and circulates the refrigerant through the evaporator and condenser coils. If the compressor itself is defective a licensed professional will have to replace it.
