Hi all.. please help me diagnose the problem..The fan below the fridge in the back side behind the freezer is running, The fan inside freezer above coils is running(evap fan?).. but no cold air.

There was no frost inside freezer... the compressor in the back is warm/hot but does not vibrate(is it suppose to?)

unplugged the unit for about 2 hrs...vacuum vents

Please help.. I'm tight on budget so if I can DIY with your help I'd really appreciate ...somewhat handy with tools... Thanks

so you really don't know if the compressor is running? if it is not running it could be a bad compressor relay or the compressor itself could be bad. If it is running then it could be low on refrigerant and/ or a bad compressor. Either way its not a good situation.

Replaced the compressor relay.. The old one was broken as it was rattling when shake and little ceramic pieces came out when opened. SO far looks like the cold air is coming in the freezer but it's only been 15 minutes or so since I plugged it back on.... fingers crossed...:wink: Just Hope the compressor didn't get damaged and relay was the only problem.
