Hi, can anyone give me some advice? My Admiral side by side fridge was not cooling/freezing, so i called out an engineer who told me that the compressor had failed. He quoted me £800 parts and labour, but it seems very pricy? I read that Maytag recalled some fridges because the compressor relays were faulty causing the compressor to lock up. Could this be the case, because it must be cheaper to replace the relay than the whole compressor?
The fridge is only three years old and two years ago we had the jazz board replaced for £200. So should i cough up another lump of cash, or look to buy a new fridge? The Admiral is fully clad stainless, so a new similar model would cost over £2000. I was told that Maytag were one of the best makes, but this doesn't seem to be the case.
