KitchenAid Refrigerator Compressor Start Device and Capacitor

PartSelect Number PS8746522
Manufacturer Part Number W10613606
This includes both the run capacitor and the start relay. The capacitor helps the compressor kick on and off while maintaining a constant temperature to keep things frozen in your freezer. The start relay boosts the compressor, and then shuts off as soon as the motor gets up to speed and the overload provides extra protection against excessive temperatures.

Installation Instructions
Gilbert from Clinton, MO
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. Read more...

Clyde from ARAB, AL
Refrigerator & Freezer both stopped cooling
Simply move the appliance for access to the back side. Removed the lower metal access panel, locate the compressor ( black round object ) parts are on the left bottom of the compressor. Simply unplug the parts, and replace with new parts.The hard part was, getting my 72 year old body in position to do the job. As far as getting the right part, a young lady in Nova Scoita is the one to ask for help !! Ordered parts one day, and they were in my hands the next morning!! Read more...

Bryce from STUART, FL
My Whirlpool Fridge and freezer would not get cold.
My Whirlpool model (GB2FHDXWS09) Fridge and freezer would not get cold. The compressor would turn on for about 5 seconds and turn off. I called parts Direct and they knew it was the Capacitor right away. I also ordered the Start Relay just to replace it as well, that was my choice.

Received the parts super fast. I chose to pay for faster shipping.

Super great place to shop, watch help videos and get the answers you need for what you need. Super happy with everything about this company and the person that helped me on the phone to place the order and confirm I was ordering the right part.

Done and working. Took me about 5 minutes. Everything is plug and play besides taking a few screws off the back.

Thanks Team !

Anna from Lincoln, RI
Our Refrigerator and freezer stopped working
I had read on a fix it site that the start device for the compressor on this particular model was known to fail after 3-5 years. When we received the part it looked like something that just plugged into the compressor. My husband unscrewed the panel in the back of the fridge and saw the part on the compressor. He first removed the three wires that it was connected to, and the wires were inside a plug so all he had to do was remove the plug from the start device. He then removed the old start device from the compressor. Plugged in the wire plug into the new start device, and pushed in the new start device into the compressor. There was also another black part plugged into the old start device that he plugged inot the new start device that connected to the compressor. Our freezer and refrigerator starting working. Within a couple of hours our freezer had made ice. Read more...

NOTE: This part has been replaced by the manufacturer. It may look different from the original but will still function the same. This part is both the start relay and the overload.

Daniel from Anna, TX
Stopped Cooling. Could hear compressor trying to kick on but would instantly shut off.
I researched everything that I heard and saw on this forum. I realized that I was seeing and hearing the same problems that everyone was having. So instead of being an idiot and taking the fridge to the curb, I decided to spend 86.00 including shipping/handling on 2 small parts (start relay and capacitor). Best money I have spent. Saved me over $1000.00+ THANK YOU!!!! The 2nd best thing was that the parts came in the next day. I didn't expect it for approx 3-4 days. Excellent website and excellent service!!! Read more...

KitchenAid Refrigerator Compressor Relay and Overload Kit

2 Reviews
PartSelect Number PS371273
Manufacturer Part Number 4387535
The compressor relay and overload kit is an assembly for your refrigerator. The function of the overload is to protect the compressor from overheating by being mounted to the side of the compressor. The purpose of the relay is to boost the compressor. This assembly comes with two smaller plastic pieces that are less than two inches by one inch. One is black and the other is white. The kit also comes with a red wire tubing. The most common reason for needing to replace the overload and relay is if your fridge is too warm or will not start.

This kit includes the Relay, Overload and cover. The start relay briefly boosts the compressor, and then shuts off as soon as the motor gets up to speed and the Overload provides added protection for the compressor motor because, in addition to protecting against excessive current, it also protects against excessive temperature use.

Michael from Grand Prairie, TX
Refrigerator stopped cooling
First I called a repair man to diagnos the problem. He said it was the starter relay and gave me a quote for $300.
I looked online and found the part at PartSelect for $55 delivered.
I took the back panel off the fridge, unplugged the appliance to stop the flow of electricity (forgot to do that once) and after ensuring the electricity was off, I cut the wiring to the starter relay. After pulling back the wire casing and reconnecting to the new started relay the compressor turned back on and the fridge started cooling again within about an hour.
This took roughly 30 minutes to complete and saved me around $250!

Brian from Laura, OH
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. Read more...
