I was first reluctant to start poking around, as I am limited in my handyman skills. However, not wanting to spend a lot of money, I decided to get my hands dirty. I quickly identifed the problem being the run capacitor and overload protector. I then identified the parts I needed to order using partselect.com and looked at user stories. I was confident this would work. Ordered the parts (YOU NEED TO ORDER TWO PARTS!) and began replacement. However, one of the prongs that the part connects to, broke in half. I was able to fashion a copper sheath to serve a conductor and to my amazement it worked. Had that hiccup not occurred, this would have been a mighty easy fix. Everything about this site helped and defintely gave me a "Tim the Toolman Taylor" boost of confidence.
Removed the starter switch clip and replaced the switch. The appliance begain to cool immeadiatly.
The repair was incredibly easy. The only reason it took me so long to do it was that the instruction sheet did not make it clear that the parts supplied covered 4 possibilities. It took me a long time to realize that in my case (the discrete) I only needed to use the separate relay, one of the funny shaped parts, the jumper wire, and the cover, but not either of the combo versions. Maybe I'm dense or just too cautious. However, once installed, the fridge started up and is working fine.
After a little research and seeing the posted comments on this site, I guessed that my our compressor start switch was bad. Super easy to replace. Removing the back panel took less than 5 minutes. Identifying the switch and removing it took about 1 minute. Because I was in there, I vaccuumed the coils (as recommeneded). Once I had the part in hand, the reassembly took less than 5 miuntes and my fridge/freezer WORKS!!!!. $60 and 10 minutes -vs- new fridge, best do it yourself ever. Thanks Parts Select.
simply unplugged and unscrewed back cover, pulled out old relay switch and popped in the new one! If I hadn't read on the website how to diagnose and repair, I wouldn't have attempted it!
I diagnosed the problem from forums online. Many sites all said the same thing, the compressor relay clicks when bad and does not start the compressor. The part arrived in 5 days even though I live in the same city as the warehouse. Too bad modern shipping can't look at the address and divert it from the centralized shipping center. The kit included several versions of the relay. It took longer (minutes) to study the clearly written instructions to determine which version of the part was needed for the specific compressor than it took to install the new relay.But you do need some basic repair skills. Unfortunately, the women of the house could not figure out which part version to use and were afraid they would break the wires if they pulled the wires from the old relay. They had to wait until I got home from work.
removed old starter. re prepped connectors for ALL LEADS. PLUGGED IN DEVICE AND TURNED ON. DESIRED TEMPS IN SIX-SEVEN HRS.
After removing the bottom back, I notice a clicking noise every 30 second to 1 minute. The sound was coming from the side of the compressor, the compressor starter. After removing the starter and opening it up, I was able to see that the inside was burned out. I ordered the part online, received it within 3 business day, replaced the part within 15 minutes. That was the problem, refrigerator works like new and I saved myself at least $200.
I pulled the back cardboard off first and then there was a plug on the compressor that a pin held on. I unplugged the old one and ordered a new one from this web site. It worked right away they shipped it fast too.
I diagnosed the part due to the stench it emitted. I took the cover off, took the part out, ordered it online, put it back it once it arrived.
