I bought this GE Profile “French Door” fridge on Craigslist for $125. I was looking for an inexpensive garage/2nd fridge. It was more than I wanted to pay, but I wasn't finding anything decent, so when I found this, I thought I would move our fridge to the garage, and use this as our primary. When I got it home and washed it thoroughly, brought it in and plugged it in, it didn't cool at all. Lights, and the evaporator fan, and it seems to be doing the “Hum, Click Cha-Cha”.
Before putting any more money into it (especially in light of the dismal repair reviews on this model), I want to do due diligence. I don’t want to spend hundreds to get this thing going.
I've pulled the relay, there is a very little rattle to it, but not like in the videos. There is a sticker on it reads: EECON TSD – 115/127V – 60 Hz- Y
Does this mean that it is a TSD?
If it IS a TSD could this relay still be the issue?
I followed the Appliance Parts Pros link. If it is the relay do I need the P.t.c. + Olp Asm (part # Part number: AP4300623
The condenser fan wasn't running either, but could that be because the compressor isn't running? Or is this another issue that I should be concerned about?
Are there any other tests I can do on it? For instance, can I test the motherboard in some way?
Thanks for any help.
