The video on the site was extremely helpful. The clicking sound and the blowing of warm air Parts Select pointed me to the correct video. Ordered the parts and they were delivered next day. Watched the video twice and went and made the repair. Pulled the refrig out to get at the back lower panel, removed the clip for the capacitor and overload relay and unplugged from the compressor. One note make sure the new capacitor and relay are firmly set, took a little extra force to have them seat. Don't forget to place the holding clip in the bottom first (as I did, took an extra 5/mins for the repair). Placed a thermometer in the refrig/freezer and checked in two hours, close to desired temp. Also while you have the unit apart don't forget to blow out the dust and dirt build up. In all, I was extra careful and it took me about 35/mins to complete the repair thanks to the video. Simple job, I will be shopping here again!
