This capacitor is also known as a run capacitor, and it is most often used in refrigerators and freezers. This part provides the voltage or energy current required to start the compressor and keep it running. It allows the compressor in your appliance to easily cycle on and off. Doing so enables the appliance to effortlessly maintain its internal temperature. If the capacitor is faulty your refrigerator or freezer might be too warm, or you may notice the compressor will hum, but it will not run. When replacing your capacitor, you should check the old one for any signs of damage, overheating, or arcing, as that may suggest there is a bigger problem with your appliance.

This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Amana, Maytag, Admiral, Roper, Magic Chef, Estate, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Inglis, Litton, Hoover, International, Dacor, Norge.

My refrigerator stopped cooling and the freezer section stopped freezing

I knew the chances of all the freon leaking out was unlikely so I looked at the wiring to the compressor and there was a capacitor and a starter/overload so i figured I would start there. I went on line and found the parts at this site and they were less than the minimum service call charge for a service tech so I figured what the heck let's give her a shot so I did give it a shot. I ordered the parts and they were there in less time than a service tech could come out and i installed the parts and guess what for 90.00 in parts and 15 minutes in time I repaired my refrigerator. Thanks guys, It took less time to order the parts than it did to make the repair so thanks, your website rocks and is very well designed so my hat is off to you guys!

Stopped cooling. Could hear compressor trying to kick on but would instantly shut off.

I researched everything that I heard and saw on this forum. I realized that I was seeing and hearing the same problems that everyone was having. So instead of being an idiot and taking the fridge to the curb, I decided to spend 86.00 including shipping/handling on 2 small parts (start relay and capacitor). Best money I have spent. Saved me over $1000.00+ THANK YOU!!!! The 2nd best thing was that the parts came in the next day. I didn't expect it for approx 3-4 days. Excellent website and excellent service!!!

Stopped cooling

I removed the back cover to gain access to the compressor. I unpluged the start device and cap from the compressor. Replaced the items with the new ones. Plugged in the refridge and it worked. Whirlpool/Kitchenaid appliances are problems. I won't buy another.

Evaporator coil froze up - not going into defrost mode so no airflow from freezer to refrigerator

Used our booklet that came with the Amana refrigerator/freezer (side-by-side). Removed the necessary panels to access the parts. Used nutdriver and screw driver to replace the three parts. No special tools were required to replace the part and they were easily accessible after removing the panels.

Working like a charm now! Thanks to Part Select for carrying the parts, as Amana does not sell the parts anymore. It's a great side-by-side and we were so happy not to have to get rid of it due to not being able to buy parts.

Fridge and freezer were not cooling- notices compressor would "click" off after 10 seconds

After repairing a similar refrigerator's ice maker a few years ago, I thought I'd try it again. After some brief research online the compressor tested ok. I ordered the start relay and run capacitor and cleaned the coils. The parts arrived promptly and I installed them without a hitch. The fridge has been working great.

Todays appliances are junk. Read the feedback from owners. Decided to buy and refurb an older unit.

Replaced these items to upgrade refrigerator. Also replaced ice maker, water valve and condensor fan motor and blade. Replaced worn or broken shelving parts. Total cost was worth the effort for the quality of finished product as compared to what is on the market today!

The freezer defrosted and everything on the top and the bottom spoiled

i had used your web site before and i read several problems that your readers had. i went to the back of the unit, removed the bottom cover and right there the i found the run capacitor and i chaged it. since i had only ordered this part to save money i went back and ordered the Start Device which when i took it off it was completely burned. the replacement part came labeled with 2 different compressor #, so i picked the one that i had and unpluged each wire. the part may differ from the one that it's in the unit but it worked when i pluged everything back on. it also helps to take a picture of everything before removing the wires in case you have to leave it and come back later. i hope to use this refrigerator another 10 years. thank you all for your help.

Customer: Guy from MUNSTER, IN

Refrigerator and freezer was not "working " ,ice machine not working.

Removing the panels inside the freezer section was the most difficult ,because it is narrow,hard to fit your body inside compartment, in order to cut wires and to splice Bi-metal Defrost Thermostat wires (2 ) Watch the videos on the web site so you know where to start. First time I ever "repaired " a large appliance, saved me over $ 600.00 (that's what the people I bought the Refrigerator from wanted to charge me.) My parts cost 65.00 !!!!! My younger brother turned me onto the web site... , I'll be returning to the site and telling my friends about it. It's a total "rip off" what service organizations charge the general public these days from Car Dealer ships to the stores we purchase our appliances from. !!! Glad I still have my health and faculties to repair the essentials we have around our homes. !!!!

Refrigerator & freezer both stopped cooling

Simply move the appliance for access to the back side. Removed the lower metal access panel, locate the compressor ( black round object ) parts are on the left bottom of the compressor. Simply unplug the parts, and replace with new parts.The hard part was, getting my 72 year old body in position to do the job. As far as getting the right part, a young lady in Nova Scoita is the one to ask for help !! Ordered parts one day, and they were in my hands the next morning!!

Replace compressor start relay

Open back panel bottom cover (4ea 1/4" metal screws) of appliance and located compressor. A little extra cleaning of all the dust accumulated over coils to allow better airflow. This was a lot more to do than just the relay, I had to elevate the fridge 6" or so to get access to the coils, tight area to get vacuum into. The relay is easy to reach then connected to compressor by contact Pins. Relay was secured by small wire clip, Removed wire clip and relay with Capacitor mounted to top was removed by pulling it straight out (with a little wiggling) and the two wire plug then removed. Needed a small screw driver to release pin locks on the plug. With relay removed it displayed same symptoms as noted on other repairs on the site. Lose insulator material fell out of relay and rattled. (not a good thing).. Before replacing selected the correct relay for this compressor (3 in kit) matches noted in instructions from kit and simply reversed the removal. It took a while for fridge to cool again. All works fine, maybe even a little better. Cleaning helps.
