Question:

Run capacitor - is that another name for "starting relay" for this model of the refrigerator/freezer side-by-side door? I hear a clicking sound as if the compressor is trying to start, then about 2 to three minutes another clicking sound as if shuts off. Observing the cabinet light, it goes dim as if the compressor starts and brightens when it shuts off, but it never get the cabinet cold. I already ran it overnight hoping to get the cabinet cold in the morning, but it never get cold. My problem with the unit is, since i move it to my garage, it stops getting the cabinet cooler, and freezer don't get colder to freeze objects place in the cabinet.

Cesar Galace for model number MSD2732GRW
Answer:

Hi Cesar, Thank you for your question. No the Start Relay and the Run Capacitor are two different parts on your Compressor. In most cases when you are experiencing the freezer for this particular model not getting cold enough, it is the Run Capacitor that is causing the problem. You should test this part with a multi-meter to see if it is malfunctioning for you. I would also suggest testing your Start Relay, Defrost Timer, and both your Evaporator and Condenser Fan Motors. As sometimes these could also be the parts giving you problems. I hope this helps!

Question:

I first noticed my refrigerator was up to 50 degrees. My freezer had icicles hanging inside because my ice cubes were melting. I noticed that 41% of the time the part i need is a capacitator. Do you think this is correct.

Kate for model number MZD2766GEQ
Answer:

Hi Kate, Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, this could be one of the parts that are causing your issue. I would suggest checking your capacitor, start relay and overload, and also your defrost thermostat. You can check all of these parts with a multi-meter. Good luck with your repair.

My freezer id's no longer freezing i can hear compressor kick in, and about30 second later kick off, it is slowly defrosting i noticed the sound last night stopped freezing today, is this likely the capacitor

Jayne for model number 596.72252200
Answer:

Hi Jayne, Thank you for your inquiry. There are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the condenser fan motor, the run capacitor, the overload relay, the evaporator fan motor, the defrost thermostat, the defrost heater, the freezer door gasket and the freezer temperature control. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

Fridge simply stopped cooling. Condenser had not iced up inside fans and condenser fan and lights all work. Unplugged and re-plugged in but did not hear start relay click. Replaced start/overload relay and also the run capacitor. About 10 seconds after plugging in fridge, the relay clicks and the compressor starts. About 10 seconds later another click and compressor stops. Every few minutes later the click-on-10 sec-click off cycle repeats. Compressor gets really warm. None of the lines get cool, hate to dump more $$'s into the fridge, but what is now the most likely problem since its not the start relay or run cap (unless one of the replacements was faulty?)

Chuck for model number GB2SHKXKQ00
Answer:

Hello Chuck, thank you for contacting us. There are 2 parts left that could be causing this issue. The compressor kicks in whenever the thermostat demands cooling, if this was faulty it could cause the compressor to kick on and off. Also it could be the compressor itself, they can start to go and sometimes can be repaired but it would require a certified technician. Good luck with the repair!

Fridge stopped working

I called a repair man from a pretty large name to come out and take a look. He found out in about 10 minutes that it was a bad capacitor. The quote he gave me was $75 for the part and $175 labor. I tried my best not to laugh and tell him no thank you. He did have to charge me for him to show up, which was only $98.
So I used what he told(minus the "scrap it") and opened it back up. Although he had left wires everywhere and the broken pieces laying inside, I thought it was enough for me to order the part. PartSelect was very easy to navigate and ordering was a breeze. Took about 4 days to get the part and I ordered in the X-mas craze. Fixed it in about 15 minutes.

Compressor won't start

Diagnosis: Defrost timer tested fine for continuity. Removed relay/capacitor unit from compressor (carefully). Tested compressor connections for continuity (OK). I tested the connection paths from timer to compressor and they were fine. At this point, I figured it could only be two things: [1]bad compressor or [2] bad relay/capacitor. I put the odds on the relay and bet the $70 on the part. Before installation, I marked the timer position with a sharpie. It's located on the ceiling of the refrigerator compartment. After the part installation, the compressor kicked in, purring quietly. Condenser coils warm, Evaporator coils cold. After a few hours I had ice in the freezer. I checked the timer markings with a compact mirror. It had advanced over a half turn, assuring that the timer motor functions. . Next, I went to the grocery store.

Compressor stopped running

I opened up the back panel, and with a multimeter found that the compressor was not getting power. The voltage stopped at the connection socket and run capacitor. Unplugged the fridge and discharged the capacitor, CAREFULLY removed these parts and replaced them. Fridge works now. The repair guy gave me an estimate of $900, but with partselect, I fixed my fridge for $63 including overnight shipping.

Remember to unplug the fridge before removing the back panel, and vacuum any dust and dirt before you work. The power to the compressor is at WALL OUTLET LEVELS and can cause serious injury or death. Please be careful and wear proper protective equipment. The repair may extremely simple, but that does not mean you should be careless.

Refrig began to trip the gfi circuit in the garage. When plugged into a house interior circuit the lights and fan ran but no cooling in either the freezer or frig.

First of all I want to thank Michael from Carlisle,PA and this site for publishing Michael's info on the wiring specifics on the new 3 connector Start Relay ( WP2262185 ). The original relay only has 2 connectors The 2 orange wires which are combined to one female connector need to be clipped and separated each to its own connector. Refer to Michael's blog as to which wire goes to which connector on the Start Relay. I replaced the Run Capacitor, Start Relay and Overload just to be safe. The Start Relay was the actual culprit.Thank you for an excellent website!

The refrigerator stopped running

I was told to order the run capacitor and the technician thought it would repair the refrigerator; but it did not. The appliance technician had to take the run capacitor off and install what he called a "hard start" and the refrigerator is operating right now.

No cooling in the freezer or in the refrigerator

Remover rear cover at bottom of refrigerator. The replacement run capacitor was the same as the original one. The replacement Overload Relay Combination was slightly different. It plugged onto the compressor the same, but the connector where the power came in from the wiring harness was different. I had to cut off the original connector from the wiring harness, and then splice in new connectors onto those two wires which I could then attach to the replacement Overload Relay Combination. Fortunately the connectors I needed were fairly common and I had those available. After that it worked. My suspicion is that the Run Capacitor was fine, and it was just the Overload Relay Combination that failed. Replacing the capacitor without replacing the Overload Relay Combination did not fix the problem.

Location of the run capacitor was not as the video described.

It was easy after it was apparent that the run capacitor was plugged into the compressor. This was determined from a parts diagram of the actual model refrigerator. The part was the same but the location on the video was wrong. A large screwdriver was used to unplug the capacitor from the compressor. The temperature range of the refrigerator is still too wide but it's colder.
