Refrigerator stop working

First I removed the relay and over load and exam. Saw that the relay was burnt. Before I order the part I check to see if the compressor was still working by jumping the common start and run terminals.It did. I also checked the start capacitor with a capacitor tester it was good. I than order the part which came the very next day.Installed the part

The compressor did not kick in....

The repair was easy......however I had no help to identify the problem and after I did I had no description or schematic of how to connect the parts. The old defective part was not identical to the new one. some written material would have been helpful.

Cimpressor would not start

Checked compressor with amp meter, and found it was not running, found Overload Switch bad.
When removing old switch watch carefully which lug you move wires from, so you will know which
lug to put the new switch on.

Starting relay went out

Forty years ago I serviced air conditioners and all kinds of refrigeration. At that time starting relays were electro mechanical, I hadn’t looked under a refrigerator in a lot of years and was surprised to find out that the new relays were solid state. The defective one had a bunch of broken pieces floating around in the case. I jury rigged a starting cord and confirmed that the compressor would start and looked at running current for thirty or so seconds. I ordered a new relay kit and it worked just right. I’m seventy five years old and it takes me longer to get up off the floor than it took to replace the parts. Your delivery was first rate the parts got here before I finished doing the paint touch-up on the door under the ice maker/water dispenser. Fed ex was easily three to five days faster than the brown truck.
