I indered the right part. The hardest aspect of the repair was finding any information about what wire to attach where. There is one orange and one black wire that goes into the PTC from the fridge.After speaking with an appliance expert at a local appliance store (not where I bought the part) they helped me out.Next time, I would just pay the extra money to buy the part from a local store because Parts Select had absolutely zero information about which wire went where.So, all things ended well. FYI Overload PTC units have two wires that come from the refrigerator, but it does not matter which wire connects with either of the two connection points on the PTC. It took me hours of research to find that out. The Overload PTC connects to the frig with a 3 prong connection. That part is very simple.

Removed the back cover of the fridge with it still pluged in. The next time the compressor tried to kick on, a small piece of black plastic next to the black tank caught fire, and then went out. I unpluged the fridge, unpluged the two wires feeding the black box. Then the box unpluged from the tank. I searched on the internet for the part using the model #. It ended up being a overload/ptc or relay. There was a smaller black box attached with I think is some sort of an overload. I unplugged the overload and it plugged right into the new relay I had overnighted. Although the new relay was white (not black) and the plug attachments were in different locations, it work great.
