    Default Sporadic compressor start

    My refrigerator sometimes does not come back on after the defrost cycle. It may work fine for two weeks or not a full 24 hours. If you turn it off and right back on, it kicks right on. I know that the compressor,start switch,thermistor and ADC are good. Is it the Freezer control?

    Hi,

    Sporadic compressor start
    My refrigerator sometimes does not come back on after the defrost cycle
    The whole refrigerator is effected....or just the compressor?

    I know that the compressor,start switch,thermistor and ADC are good
    How? Where these tested?...if yes, how and what was the results.

    If you turn it off and right back on, it kicks right on.
    What does?...the compressor, the whole refrigerator?

    I have two that may be doing the same thing. Start relay on both had a rattle. I just ordered a new relay for one hoping it solves the problem.

    I doubt the start relay has anything to do with a refrigerator not starting after a defrost cycle.
    It can stop a compressor for sure, but normally nothing else.

    Start relay on both had a rattle.
    Many relays today will rattle!
    That does not tell us much any more.

    I did not know some of these relays had a rattle in them. Mine wiuld just have trouble cooling sometimes.
    Have not noticed them not coming on like the original posted stated.
    I will get the model number from one and make a different post.
