Apparently, the manufacturer sometimes substitutes a part but keeps the same number, which is what happened here. The part wouldn't fit in the actual space on this model--even though the number was apparently correct! Refunding my money and assisting me to contact the manufacturer directly couldn't have been easier! Impressive customer service in a difficult situation.

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.

Easy to replace part - remove panel at the bottom rear of the appliance, unplug from the compressor and connect the new relay. Unfortunately, it was not the relay on my appliance -- looks like the compressor has gone out -- new fridge for me

frige warm and freezer icing up

I pulled the frige out, took off the cover from the bottom with a nut driver. Took off the safety clip then pulled the plug out from the relay then the relay came out. Replaced the part and reinstalled the same way. This was really easy and fast.

The bottom freezer and the fridge stopped cooling what seemed at a random time but was also after an electrical storm.

First off I had no idea how a fridge worked or where to begin and the troubleshooting section of the manual was a joke. So I took the back panel off made sure the coils underneath were clean. Took out the back panel of the freezer and made sure that nothing was frozen over and I hadn't seen excess water on the floor so ruled that out. I knew the condenser was still running so I took a shot in the dark. Ordered the part and waited for it to arrive. It took me 3 minutes to open the box and install it. Immediately knew it was working replaced the back panel and moved the fridge back.

I fortunately found the Part Select web site!! Used the trouble shooting guides and diagrams to diagnose the likely problem. Viewed the installation videos provided on the site and followed the procedure to complete the repair in about 15 minutes. It was a snap (actually three snaps) Fridge now working like new!! Thanks for the great information, guidance, pricing and superfast delivery!! Ron

Refrigerator and freezer stopped cooling. Compressor pump not coming on

  • Customer: Joseph from North Anddover MA
  • Difficulty: Really easy

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
