I have a Tappan FT3BA-048KA. I'm trying to find an Owner's Manual. Any ideas? The compressor periodically stops running and buzzes for about 2 seconds. This happens every three minutes or so and then the compressor will eventually run again. It cools fine once the compressor kicks in. The fan runs fine.
Compressor having a hard time starting can be a weak capacitor. Buy a new one and if it cures the problem great, if not you're out less then $20. Next step would be adding a hard start kit like the compressor saver brand.
