Fridge was working.

Emptied it and cleaned all shelves and drawers.

Pulled it out and cleaned behind and underneath, tilted about 20 to 30 degrees to vacuum coils.

Fridge was unplugged overnight.

 

Pushed it back and plugged it in and now it is not getting cold.

Lights are on, fan is running.

Compressor relay clicks and I hear a buzzing noise for about 15 seconds and it stops.

Relay click and bussing repeats about every two minutes or so.

 

I looked for anything obvious that I might have screwed up, no disconnected wires and no damaged refrigerant lines that I can see.

 

What could be wrong?

replace relay, if it doesn't work, then your compressor is shot. Also make sure your Condenser fan is working and your compressor is not overheating.

You guys are AWESOME!!

I doubted you at first, because the relay was clicking so I assumed it good.

But when I took the relay out, it rattled like a childs toy.

 

The repair kit confused me a bit at first but I used the integrated relay for the 90 compressor and it started right up.

My beer will be cold again, thank you.
