Refrigerator would not cool, start relay was shot.
I ordered the three parts from the diagram for my model. The new relay was not at all similar to the old one (3 connections instead of 2, new cover. Seareching for about an hour on the web I found some blogs that helped. In case anyone else asks, here is the answer. The old relay had two connections - white wire to one and 2 orange wires to the other. The new relay had three connnection - they are numbered on the relay, attach as follows - White to #3, orange from capacitor to #2, orange from harness to #1. Blue stays with overload. I am surprised that the so-called experts had no idea what to do, but a simple homeowner was able to figure it out!! Fridge works perfectly now..
