The compressor would not run.

I removed the screws in the lower back panel where the compressor is located. Then I unplugged the capacitor and plugged the new one in. I then checked to see if the compressor would start. It wouldn't so I replaced the overload relay with capacitor and that fixed the problem. The capacitor just plugs into the relay then plugs into the compressor. There are several screws but all in all it is easy.

Loud hum from compressor, cycling overload switch, no cooling.

I could hear a loud hum from the compressor motor cycling on/off every 5-10 seconds. Pulled the capacitor and relay switch from the compressor. Checked compressor terminals with ohmmeter, no shorts to ground so it was ok. A gravely substance rained out of the overload relay switch when I removed it, so I assumed it was bad. Didn't need to check the capacitor as it was only another $20 or so to replace. Also didn't notice any oily residue that would signify a coolant leak, so assumed the system was still pressurized. New relay switch and capacitor plugged right in, no tools needed. Re-secured the assembly with it's original keeper clip wire and I was done. Plugged it in and made sure it was cooling properly before replacing the various back cover panels. Like a new reefer! Couldn't have been easier. Just be careful with the capacitor when you remove it. It could hold a lethal electric charge.

Refrigerator

Removed back cover by removing 6 screws, vacuumed the dust out to make it less unpleasant and made sure I had the fridge far enough away from the wall to easily see. The kit was a little different from the relay that was in place - the old one on the compressor was encased in a small plastic carrier, and the replacement was two separate pieces, a short connector wire and a much bigger cover. I made sure the fridge was unplugged, then pulled off the wires (recorded what color went where) and pulled the relay with it's carrier from the compressor. I realized that the carrier was not to be reused, and pushed on the relay and the overload pieces, put on the provided white connector wire, connected the colored wires back to their new connections (orange wire now connects to white connector wire), and carefully snapped the new big cover over the wires and relay. Be careful with the wire routing - don't want to dislodge the connectors when putting on the cover. Remounted the back cover and plugged that puppy in - worked like a champ!

Refrigerator had been working and still had lights and a running fan, but no cooling, everything had defrosted.

I didn't do it, my husband did. He removed the back panel and used an ohm meter to check the compressor and found that that was working so he decided to replace the overload relay and capacitator. He has an hour lunch and since the parts were in he decided to change it during his lunch hour. The minute he had them replaced....voila!! Cold again! We had a different fridge that had the same problem, but we thought it would be too expensive to fix so we junked it......wish we would have tried this!!! So proud of the hubby!

Refridgerator/freezer not cooling

First of all, let me say that I'm a 50 year old single woman. If I can do this repair, anyone can! After unscrewing the back of the unit that houses the compressor, I found the relay overload switch which is attached to the compressor. I pulled the part off and discovered that it comes in one piece. The replacement part came in 3 pieces. I intially thought they sent the wrong part. After a little thinking outside of the box, I figured out that the replacement part was indeed the correct part and that it comes in 3 pieces instead of one. It would have taken 5 minutes to repair if I had realized this early on. Once replaced, the refrigerator/freezer was cooling within 10 min. I sent the Run Capacitor back after telephoning a customer service rep. She was so courteous and helpful! What a fabulous company. I highly recommend. I saved myself approx. $250.00 doing it myself.
