My fridge won’t stop running. (Model #596.69272990, noted below)

This has been ongoing for a week and I have not tried to do anything other than unplug it and plug it back in.

Is it the relay and if so how do I change it?


  • Not enough information to provide an informed answer. What have you tried? How long has it been running? Please add Any other info that may be useful. – Alaska Man Nov 16 '20 at 19:37
  • What relay? Have you looked up the service manual or the schematics for it online? Have you searched for others with this problem online? It is unlikely we can diagnose it from here. – Alaska Man Nov 16 '20 at 19:41
  • I could not find anything online and am just asking if folks have had the same issue and how they have fixed it. – Vadim K. Nov 16 '20 at 19:42
  • I'd check the thermostat first and also for ice on the evaporator coils. That can clog up the airflow and prevent the refrigerator section from getting cold enough to shut off the compressor. – jwh20 Nov 16 '20 at 19:54
