A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
It does a lot of clicking (trying to start over and over again)
If thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
I use part no ERP410 POWER START RELAY, CAPACITOR AND OVERLOAD all in one. (110 v)

Probably so. I would be looking at compressor and the relay / overload that plugs into the side of it. Hopefully you are lucky and it's just that relay / overload that's bad and not the compressor or a control Board. Be sure to unplug unit before servicing. Once you remove relay / overload from compressor, shake it vigorously. If it rattles, it's bad.

There is no cooling in my fridge but fridge is on,fan is working but no cooling

it can be any of 3 issues,either the damper vent door between the freezer and refrig is iced up and cant open and close,or the motor that operates this door is bad or without power,then the evaporator coil in the rear area behind a panel inside the freezer is iced over and you can't blow cold air over a solid wall of ice,if this is the case the rear wall inside the freezer will have ice buildup on it,then it can be a bad ptc contactor overload relay on the compressor keeping it from starting and cooling the unit

Ice maker not working I think it is the solenoid on the water valve. Also the overload relay keeps kicking in and makes a vibrating noise. What does the overload relay do anyway?

The relay lets all the coils inside the compressor get energized momentarily to get the beast going. Then it drops out half the copper when the motor gets up to speed. This prevents overheating of the copper inside the compressor.1202614.jpgWith time they simply fall apart from the beating they take. Yours might be on the way out. 8711921.jpgthe water valve is the cheapest component to replace AND if you need a new ice maker you will already have a water valve to go with it.

Whirlpool side/side. 3yrs old from Lowes. Something electrical tries to come on about every 30 seconds - 1 min. Hums for about 10 - 15 seconds and then stops. Freezer started not keeping everything frozen...

There is a relay overload on the compressor that makes a noise similar to what you are describing when the compressor does not start. Sometimes the electrical parts can be replaced, the rest the compressor is bad and needs replacement.

The other less likely possibility is that the ice maker is not hooked up, the arm got put down and the ice maker is cycling causing its heating element to run and the noise from the water valve.

If you pull off the back panel behind unit you should get some idea where noise is coming from

Bunn keeps blowing the circuit when pulled in

If the circuit resets with the coffee maker unplugged, the coffee maker is at fault. There is a defective part in the unit that is shorted causing an overload in the circuit. You will have to isolate the bad circuit and replace or replace the coffee maker.

Condenser clicks on and starts to run but clicks off after 3 or 4 seconds. And this keeps happening every couple of minutes?

You need to replace the overload/relay , which is plugged onto the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires going to it . This part is easily replaceable . Also , make sure the coils are clean under the refrig , of dust , lint , pet hair , etc .

Buzzing intermittent

It sounds like the ice maker. If you don't have the water hooked up, and the ice sensor bar is in the down position, the ice maker assembly will attempt to make ice continuously.
Solution is easy: raise the ice sensor bar until it clicks in the up position. It will lock in this position, and the ice maker will not cycle anymore.
