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..

Both sides would't get cold

WASN'T SURE WHICH SWITCH WAS BAD SO I ORDERED ALL THREE. THOUGHT MAYBE COMPRESSOR WAS BAD, BUT IT WAS THE OVERLOAD. I REMOVED PLASTIC COVER ON COMPRESSOR, UNPLUGGED WIRES AND SLID OVERLOAD OFF OF PRONGS (PINS) ATTACHED TO THE COMPRESSOR. SAME WITH THE SECOND SWITCH, BOTH ARE ATTACHED TO THE COMPRESSOR. SAVED BUYING A NEW FRIDGE FOR $1400.00. EASY , CHEAP JOB!

Compressor not working

Extremely easy install. Just popped off the cover located on the side of the compressor. Noted placement of the wires on the overload and relay. Took a small screwdriver to slide both from the electrical pins on the compressor...take care doing this. Unplugged the wires, plugged the new components to the wires and installed to the compressor. Plugged in the frig and the compressor came on. Not sure why these went out to begin with but the fix was extremely easy and saved me the expense of a repair man.
