Secret Samurai Trick for Correctly Diagnosing Refrigerator Compressor Start Problems

by Samurai Appliance Repair Man,

Konnichiwa to all my Brethren in The Craft!  As professional Appliantologists, we’ve all been on service calls for a compressor that’s failing to start and, instead, doing what we call the hum-click cha-cha. Typically in these situations, you find a Kentucky-fried compressor start relay.  These are usually great jobs: straight-forward, high-margin, and high degree of customer-perceived value; I call these kind of jobs “Skip n’ Plucks.”  But if you fall into parts-changing monkey mode and don’t analyze the situation like a true Appliantologist, you could end up with a call back in a short time for the same problem.

In this month’s magical journey into the ancient and mystical art of Appliantology, I’m going to share with you the Double-Extra Special Secret Samurai Trick™ for correctly diagnosing compressor start problems and making sure you’ve identified the real failure cause when you’re on these types of service calls. Come with me now on a journey of Total Appliance Enlightenment™:
