I have a Haier mini fridge that is not working. I have taken the P6R8MC relay off but don't hear any rattle. Does that mean the compressor is probably bad?


That is what is sounds like but let's check. An overload relay will fail due to wear, a short or a bad compressor will knock it out. There is a rare occasion you may purchased a bad overload relay, but that is rare. The rattling of the overload relay is a good indicator it is bad, however it does not have to rattle to be bad - inspect for burn marks as well.
The clicking sound is the overload relay trying to start the compressor. There will be a pause and then click trying to start the compressor again.
Remove the overload relay component and expose the three pins on the compressor. Using a multi- meter, measure the Ohms across the three pins. You will get one high Ohm reading and two lower Ohm readings. If the two lower readings add up to the higher reading the compressor is good. Make sure the green ground wire is securely grounded. It could nock out the overload. Check for loose connections. Replacing a compressor is a major repair. The cost will exceed the purchase price. Rule of thumb; "If the cost of the repair is 1/3 or more of the purchase price of the unit, Buy new".
As a retired Sears service technician, we considered these units
as throw-a-ways due to the high cost of repair. If you had a service contract we would replace the unit rather than repair it

Mr. Ray: Did you get an answer to your question? We may be having the same problem with our Magic Chef wine cooler

VinoTemp VT60


Step 1:
It's most likely the PTC (Positive Temperature Compensated) start relay that turns the compressor on and off. The manufacturer has replaced part number P6R8MC with part number 6R8MG for this PTC start relay. Order part number 6R8MG, it cost less than $20 from AppliancePartsPro
First, unplug the wine cooler and take off the back panel. The back panel is held into place with several philips head screws.

Step 2:
Locate the compressor. You'll find the compressor in the bottom left corner of the VT-60 as viewed from the back. You will see copper tubes coming out of the compressor. These tubes carry the compressed refrigerant to the evaporator assembly. Be careful not to crimp or damage the copper tubing.
Step 3:
Find the black plastic cover to the left of the compressor. This cover is held into place with one philips head screw. Remove the screw and remove the cover to find the PTC start relay.
Step 4:
The relay is connected to the compressor by a single blade connector and two pins which protrude from the compressor. Remove the blade connector and pull the PTC relay to the left, sliding it off the pins attached to the compressor.

Step 5:
Slide the relay on the connector pins, reattach the blade connector, reattach the black pastic cover over the relay, reattach the back panel onto the VT-60 and you're done.

MY FRIDGE STOP WORKING AND THE COMPERSSOR IS VERY HOT. What can be wrong with it it is only 2 years old


Usually when a compresso that is not that old gets hot the problem is with one of 3 components

1. The PTC Relay PN P6R8MC
http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-P6R8MC-%3d%3di1206838&PartID=1206838

2. Thermal overload PN 265RFBYY
one of many sources: http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-265RFBYY-%3d%3di1206539&PartID=1206539
3. Loose wiring or terminals
4. Worst case the compressor itself (5 Year carry in warranty!)

Items 1 and 2 above should be changed at the same time. Usually when one fails it causes the 2nd one to fail.

Before you go ordering parts.. just unplug the unit for about 45 minutes. Sometimes if there is a brief power outtage (less than 3 mins) the unit stops and the coolant has not equalized. The compressor keeps trying to start keeping the pressure up but yet the compressor does not start normally. The compressor gets hot and the thermal overload causes the unit to cycle on about every 5 minutes. Over an extended time of cycling the thermal overload will fail. After 45 minutes plug the unit in and see if it starts

If you change the PTC Relay you must change the KliXon thermal overload at the same time. Most LOCAL Appliance part supply stores will have both of these parts in stock. Use the part numbers above and walk in with the parts in hand.

IF you decide to change them your self FIRST make yourself a simple wiring diagram
I.e Orange to terminal ___
Blue to terminal ____

Then remove the parts by opening the plastic cover on the side of the compressor and then pull off the PTC and Thermal overload HORIZONTALLY. Obtain the replacement parts and reintall after inspecting the compressor terminals. Clean as necessary by scraping with a knife blade.

If after changing these two parts the compressor still does not start you may very well have a warranty carry in service compressor change. I seriously doubt that the compressor has failed but it does rarely happen.
