I'm afraid that is not enough information to identify the appliance in question. What is needed is its exact model number.Originally Posted by Dennis Meyer

If the compressor is getting power but not starting, there could be a problem with it or its starting relay and overload protector.I assume the compressor has went out when it try to come on it will hum for a second or two then cut off.
The relay and overload usually attach directly onto the compressor. If the overload is tripping, it will usually get hot.What I think is a heat resister that plugs into the compressor gets hot
Please explain exactly what you did.I hooked up direct to the compressor
As stated above a problem in the compressor, starting relay or overload protector could all prevent the compressor from running.Is there anything besides the compressor that would give me this problem.
BTW. Do not allow the compressor to continue to click on and off (ie. try to start but fail to do so). When it occurs the fridge should be turned off or power disconnected for 10-15 minutes to give the compressor a chance to cool. If the compressor doesn't start right up when plugged back in, leave it off until the problem can be found and corrected or damage to the compressor ($$$) could result... if it isn't already the cause of the problem.
