GE Fridge
« on: November 15, 2011, 07:39:52 AM »

Ok, now my own fridge is acting up.  We live in an old house and there are way too many appliances and outlets on one breaker.  This morning the breaker tripped again.  Now the fridge is making a buzzing noise near the compressor.  Would that be my relay that needs to be replaced  part# wr07x10055?


Is it okay to keep my fridge plugged in until I get the part to replace it?



Model# Tbx22macbrww

Could be the start relay or the compressor.
I would unplug the refrigerator. Ohm out the compressor to make sure one of the windings is not grounded to the case.

If the compressor checks ok with a ohm meter then I would replace the start relay.

I would unplug it until it's fixed.

It seems like it was just the overload part# AP2061516.  After replacing it, it worked fine.  But since I had the new relay part, I replaced it also.  Runs great!


Thanks for the help!
