The 5 year Kenmore Elite (Amana made) french-door fridge stopped cooling - fan did run although compressor didn't. I first took out the thermostat and tested with OHM meter as I looked up on the internet. Tested fine. Then I took off the back cover to expose the compressor. Pulled off relay/capacitor and instantly heard the relay rattling and knew that was it. Ordered the part and that was it - real simple to install. I realized how simple a refrigerator is and how few parts (that are worth fixing) would really go bad on these generally very reliable appliances.
