Only the compressor fan was running with no cold air, the compressor wouldn't kick on. I pulled the start relay and the disc inside was in pieces ( rattled when you shook it). I ordered the new one and installed it. The compressor started running right away and cold air was delivered to the freezer.

Unplugged refrigerator. Removed back panel to expose compressor, unplugged start device, removed the wire keeper, had to use a flat screwdriver to pry off the start device from the compressor prongs. Was not sure run capacitor was damaged but replaced it any way. Installing the new start device was as simple as plugging everything into there respective places. Reinstall the wire keeper, and back panel. Plugged the refrigerator in. All is back to normal.

The most difficult part was after I removed the old Start Device kit, the electrical wire clamp had to be adjusted so that it would fit back on the new compressor start device. Also the new one did not look like the old one so it took a few minutes to read the instructions and set it back up correctly but once in place it worked like a charm.

Called the very friendly and helpful customer rep at partselect: explained my confusion in selecting the right part I needed, and with her help slected the compressor start device kit. It turned out to be an exact match for my defective parts, and only took a few minutes to plug it all together. It now works like new! Easy fix. Anyone who can pay attention to what they are doing should be able to resolve their own problem easily. By the way, shipping was very fast!

Unplug refrigerator and turn water supple off. Remove three mounting mounting screws and unplug the old ice maker.(there is a latch on the plug to release it) Remove shutoff arm from old unit or if ordered seperatly with the ice maker, install shutoff arm on the new unit. Plug the new unit in (latch will snap into place when plug is properly seated.) Install the bottom screw (leave screws loose until all are started in the orginal holes). Tighten screws and you are done. Turn the water on and plug refrigerator in. After about an hour or two the ice maker will be cold enough to start making ice. In about five hours or so you will see the first ice cubes!!!!

I did a Google Search for a 1998 Whirlpool ED22RF, looked for trouble Isolation procedures. Don't remember the web sites but two parts were mentioned namely the timer and the thermal relay. After making sure it was unplugged I removed the back lower insulation panel, removed the red wire from the relay located on the left side of the condenser and unplugged the relay. I examined it for physical damage before checking with an ohmmeter and found the thermal relay sounded like it was full of sand when I shook it. So we found PartSelect and searched for the thermal relay and found an exact picture with the part number and ordered the part. We received the $30 part 5 days later. Only took 15 minutes and two tools to install. Thank you for saving us a few hundred dollars.

First I used some glue to stop the crack from spreading, and that worked for a while, but then I deceided to get a new replacement part. What I got was better than the original one as it had a white protective piece over the end of the drawer and I believe that will give more protection to the drawer. My kids did not always close the drawer all the ways and that is how the crack started. So now the refrigerator looks like new again.
