Product Description

Compressor Start Relay Specifications

NOTE: This part has been replaced by the manufacturer.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. 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.

Fridge won't start
When you plug in the fridge it will begin to make noise, but never get cool. When you open the door it will stop and will not turn back on.

RELAY-STRT (PS11770133) is listed as one that can fix the problem, but the installation video does not match my fridge.

I've replaced the capacitor (PS11757023), the compressor start relay (PS11740412), and condenser fan (PS1957416) and none of them have fixed the problem.

I really don't want to throw this fridge out. Please help! justin@jplt.com

Refrigerator wouldn’t get cold. Fan was working and compressor would try to start and then it would click and turn off and the cycle would just repeat.
Pulled the refrigerator out from the wall, I had unplugged it prior so it didn’t burn out the compressor. Put both new pieces together, I ordered both just in case they were both bad. Used the screwdriver and removed the screws from the bottom cover. Removed the silver wire thing, unplugged the wire connector and pulled out the old piece. Plugged the wire connector into the new piece and pushed the new piece into the silver prongs, replaced the silver wire thing, put the back on the refrigerator and replaced the screws and crossed my fingers.
Plugged it in, turned on the refrigerator and freezer on from inside the refrigerator and joila it started right up and is working. I am a 63 year old female, and had watched the video first on how to remove and replace it.

Unit would not cool / compressor not turning on
Took lower back cover off. Looked and observed for a few minutes to identify parts and removal. Five minutes later the job was complete. Older stainless steel unit now runs like new. Saved a lot of money... DIY

Compressor was tripping. Both Refrigerator and Freezer stopped cooling
I have a Whirlpool side by side refrigerator/freezer, 12 years old. One day it just stopped cooling and there was water running under the fridge (melted the ice in the ice bucket). Checked the freezer fan and it was working. I also checked the condenser fan by checking air flow under the fridge; there was airflow, so it was working. Listened to the sound of refrigerator. Noticed the compressor was coming on and after a few seconds clicked (tripped). I figured either the compressor is burned or the Start Device is bad. Turned the plug off, took off the lower back cover using a nut driver. Removed the clip holding the Start Device and gently unplugged the Start Device from the compressor. Measured the resistance across compressor terminals. They should all read some resistance (10,6,4 ohm roughly). Also checked the continuity between each terminal and compressor shell. They were all open (means no shorting). I figured the Start Device should be bad. Ordered new part for $40, replaced it with old one, put the cover back on. Plugged the unit on and everything was working. Remember that it takes a while to cool both compartment, so do not expect the fridge/freezer to get cool quickly.

Fridge and Freezer were not cooling- notices compressor would "click" off after 10 seconds
After repairing a similar refrigerator's ice maker a few years ago, I thought I'd try it again. After some brief research online the compressor tested ok. I ordered the start relay and run capacitor and cleaned the coils. The parts arrived promptly and I installed them without a hitch. The fridge has been working great.

Fridge and freezer quit working
This is a side by side fridge. Both refrigerator and freezer quit working. I could here the combination start device click and try to start the compressor. It would shut back off within 5 seconds.Removed the lower rear cover on the fridge and cleaned the coils while it was off. Replaced the combination start device, plugged in the fridge, and it worked. What a relief!

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!!!

Refrigerator and freezer stopped cooling after power outage
Power outage and both freezer and refrigerator stopped cooling. When you unplug the refrigerator and plug it back in the compressor would run for a few seconds then kick off. Replaced the combination start device and works great again. Third time I have used the site with positive results. Fast shipping and right part every time to fix that fixed my problem.

Our unit starts and sounds normal but does not restart as normal. To restart we turn the thermostat to the off position then back to the desired cold setting.Thank you

How do you test compressor
For model number 10656686501
PartSelect logo
Hi Pat, Thank you for the question. You will need to test the compressor windings with a multimeter. With the multimeter set to R x 10,000 (10K), each winding should be checked to ground. You should have an infinite OL resistance to ground. A shorted motor will read 0 ohms across windings, to ground, or both. If it's both, you'll need to replace the compressor.Hope this helps!

I have looked at your part ps11740412. It lists the brands that are compatible with it but LG is not included. The images of the part are exactly the same (except the white label) as the part i'm trying to get. Will this part work with my model refrigerator?

Re: Ps11740412 model# wp2319792. This part rattles when you shake it. According to the internet, when that happens it’s broken. My old part rattles that’s why you hear the “clicking” noise. I have not installed it yet. But, according to the youtube video, make sure there’s no rattling noise before you install it.

Hello Eric, Thank you for the question. In order to get more information we will need the appliance model number but, in general the device should not rattle. Hope this helps!

Freezer is cold but not freezing, runs all the time.Fridge side is good. Help? Replace thermostat did not help. Cleaned coils.
For model number Wrtfx311dm00

Hi Bob, thank you for contacting us. If the freezer is cold but not freezing, you may need to check the evaporator fan motor, part number PS11740359, to fix the issue. Before replacing the motor, you may need to check that the gasket is not damaged from anywhere. We hope this helps!
