I removed the cover panel. There is a clip that holds the relay and capacitor to the pump. Use a screwdriver to pry it off. Unplug the relay. The capacitor is plugged into the relay and they come together which was a surprise, I thought I only ordered the relay. Unplug a cable from the relay. Insert that cable into the new relay and plug it into the compressor. Reattach the clip. One be important instruction. Unplug the refrigerator for at least 8 hours before installation to allow the compressor to cool down. I tried first without allowing the compressor to cool and it did not work. After letting it cool I tried again and it worked like charm. Make sure the refrigerator is unplugged when doing the repair

After unplugging the refrigerator, I removed the lower rear access panel that exposed the condenser and the overload/relay start capacitor with 1/4" nut driver (6 total). Next, I unplugged the wire harness and spring loaded keeper with needle nose pliers. Then I pulled the overload/relay start capacitor out of the 3 pronged male receptor located on the side of the condenser and plugged in the new one. Replaced the keeper, plugged the harness back in, and replaced the panel. Very easy fix.

UNPLUG the unit from the wall plug. Slide out enough to access the fiber panel at the bottom. Remove the six screws from the panel with a nut driver. Slide the electrical cord upward out of the slot and remove the panel. The start device and run capacitor can be found on the left side of the compressor. Using a flat screw driver, insert between the capacitor and the retaining clip and twist the screwdriver to remove the clip. Observe the orientation of these devices to replace with new ones. Unplug these two together from the compressor. Then disconnect the electrical two-prong plug from these devices. Replace with the new ones, being careful not to bend the two spade connectors on the start device.
