May have been asked and answered already but GE Side by Side working seemingly fine but i have noticed that when the compressor comes on (I am assuming) it is causing a substantial power draw in the condo( lights dim). And I can hear a click.

Any thoughts would be helpful. As I said it is working fine otherwise. It does get very little use as this is vacation property.

Thanks in advance

  • Hello, and welcome to Home Improvement. Unless this is a significant change from when it was first installed, this is likely a result of your wiring, and nothing we could really help you with. And, you should probably take our tour so you'll know how best to participate here. Dec 5 '19 at 23:00
  • I agree with Daniel, it works , and you hear a click, so is there a problem? Or a feeling , Electrician’s can’t help feelings but can can explain electrical problems.

  • It is a significant change & its not a feeling! Unless of course my brainwaves are making all the lights in the house dim and more crucially get very bright! I guess it could be brilliance on my part. I suppose the question SHOULD have been. Has anyone experienced this surge from a fridge compressor? There are no other major appliances, etc engaged when this happens. The CLICK comment was referencing that I am hearing the compressor functioning. The power company has identified the issue.

  • Your original question didn't identify the lights getting very bright. You said the power company identified the issue. What was the problem, an open neutral? How was it fixed? Dec 25 '19 at 14:04
