Good afternoon,

Welcome to

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today!

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your appliance.

I understand how frustrating that must be.

This indicates the start relay and/or compressor is faulty and will need replacement.

You may unplug it and pull it out then remove the bottom rear cover of the refrigerator.

Disconnect the compressor, if it trips replace the start relay however, if it won't trip replace the compressor.

You may see automated adverts for phone support sent by website.

I am glad, I could help.

I hope you have a great day.

It has been my pleasure to assist you!
