Manufactured by Whirlpool

This capacitor is also known as a run capacitor, and it is most often used in refrigerators and freezers. This part provides the voltage or energy current required to start the compressor and keep it running. It allows the compressor in your appliance to easily cycle on and off. Doing so enables the appliance to effortlessly maintain its internal temperature. If the capacitor is faulty your refrigerator or freezer might be too warm, or you may notice the compressor will hum, but it will not run. When replacing your capacitor, you should check the old one for any signs of damage, overheating, or arcing, as that may suggest there is a bigger problem with your appliance.

This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Kenmore, Amana, KitchenAid, Maytag, Admiral, Roper, Jenn-Air, Magic Chef, Crosley, Estate, Inglis, Litton, Hoover, Norge, International, Caloric, Dacor, Thermador

This part works with the following products: Refrigerator, Freezer

This part fixes the following symptoms: Will Not Start | Fridge too warm | Freezer section too warm | Fridge and Freezer are too warm

Barb for model number wrt1l1zyw01
August 16, 2017
Answer:

Hello Barb, thank you for contacting us. That is the capacitor for the compressor. That could cause the freezer and fridge to get too warm. As well it could be the start relay PS11753018. It could also be the thermostat PS11756547 which could cause the fridge to be too cold. The capacitor and the start relay on the compressor can both be tested with a multi-meter. Hope this helps!

Question:

In the past 2 weeks the refrigerator has been acting up. It will randomly turn off for a long period of time and will only turn back on if we un plug the machine from the electrical socket and plug it back in. It has done this sporadically in the past year and we did not think much of it, but now it seems to be doing this multiple times during the week. What would you suggest to fix/replace? Thanks!

Michael for model number ER8AHMXRQ01

Maria for model number WRT351SFYM00
August 28, 2017
Answer:

Hi Maria, Thank you for the question. The first thing to check is the fan in the back of the freezer. It is good to make sure this fan is still running so it is blowing the cool air to the fresh food side of the appliance from the freezer. Also make sure the fan blades are clean and the coils on the back of the appliance are clean. They can have dust build up over time so it is a good idea to give them a good vacuuming. We also suggest the gasket around the door is properly sealing and not letting in any warm air. If all these areas seem ok then you may need to replace the Thermostat. Hope this helps!

Question:

My fridge is 30 years old but ran fine until it started to freeze food in the fridge portion. The compressor continues to run even when the temperature controller is set to the lowest setting. In fact, once the system is "freezing" the compressor, lights, etc will not shut off even when the dial is set to off. If the fridge is unplugged for a few hours and restarted it cycles properly for a few days then freezes again. Repairing a fridge this old may not be worth it but it works (or worked) very well and is otherwise in perfect physical condition. Can you help?

Question:

My freezer gets so warm that it melts the ice in the dispenser and leaks out onto the floor. The defrost terminator has been replaced. The freezer gets back to freezing well but fluctuates in temperature from -5 to 40 degrees at different times throughout the day. The refrigerator side fluctuates, but stays a lot closer to the setting; maybe up by 5 degrees but never colder. Should i replace the capacitor or, is there a control board that is going bad, etc.? what's the best option?

Mike for model number GSF26C4EXB02
February 16, 2018
Answer:

Hi Mike, Thank you for your question. It could be your run capacitor. I would actually suggest testing both your run capacitor, your freezer thermistor, and your defrost thermostat first. Those are the more likely parts to be the problem. You can test all three of those with a multi meter to be sure they are working correctly. If they are, then you might have to look into your board being the issue. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Taira for model number KFIS20XVMS4
August 6, 2018
Answer:

Hi Taira, Thank you for your question. If the refrigerator has not worked correctly since the power outage, you will need to determine where the popping sound is coming from to see if the part that is causing the noise is the one causing the issue. You should also check the capacitor, the start device and the electronic control board. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

I just bough the refrigerator from craigslist and when i went to plug it in it clicks once or twice but nothing else happens. No digital lights or inside lights come on, the compressor doesn't start, nothing. Wondering if the capacitor would cause that if it needs to be replaced.

Will Smith for model number GS5SHAXTB01
December 4, 2017
Answer:

Hi Will, Thank you for your question. The capacitor fixes the issue the majority of the time, but there are some other parts you will need to check as well. You will need to check the push-on-start relay, the condenser fan motor, the overload, the evaporator fan motor, the compressor and the emitter and receiver boards. To test the parts you will need to use a multimeter. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Just purchased the freezer used, had to transport it home (5 miles, 10-15 min), plugged it in within 3 minutes or so. The door didn't seem to close all the way but after I adjusted the door it would close fine. It seems to be running all of the time, I can feel cool, air being blown out of the vents in the freezer but it wont get down below about 30 degrees. I am currently trying leaving it unplugged for 10 hours or so then I am going to plug it in again. Is there anything else I can try?

How to check start capacitor

Pat
March 2, 2018
Answer:

Hi Pat, Thank you for your inquiry. You can check the capacitor with a multimeter to see if it has continuity. Set the meter to read in the high ohms range, somewhere above 10k and 1m ohms. Touch the meter leads to the corresponding leads on the capacitor, red to positive and black to negative. The meter should start at zero and then moving slowly toward infinity. Hope this helps!

Melissa deBorde for model number GI6SARXXF00
April 2, 2018
Answer:

Hello Melissa, thank you for your question. The first thing I would recommend checking would be the drain tube that runs from the freezer section to the evaporator pan under the unit. It sounds like the P-Trap might be blocked or needs to be replaced. The p-trap drain tube kit may also be known as the duck bill, or the drain pipe. The function of the p-trap drain kit is to carry the water that has formed during the defrost cycle to the bottom of the refrigerator, where your drain pan is located. The part number is P-Trap Drain Tube Kit W10619951. I Hope this helps!

Karl for model number kfcs22evms00
February 26, 2018
Answer:

Hi Karl, Thank you for the question. If the compressor is kicking on and off and running normally the Capacitor should be good. I suggest testing the Bimetal Defrost Thermostat.The best way to do this is to remove the thermostat from the refrigerator so you can control the temperature of the sensor. You can let the sensor warm up to room temperature. With the sensor warmed up to room temperature the sensor should read approximately 6.2K Ohms at 68°F. With the thermistor submerged is a glass full of ice water, the sensor should be very close to 32°F which should read approximately 16.3K Ohms. If the values that you are getting are far off from these readings, then the sensor is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps!

My refrigerator stopped cooling and the freezer section stopped freezing
I knew the chances of all the freon leaking out was unlikely so I looked at the wiring to the compressor and there was a capacitor and a starter/overload so i figured I would start there. I went on line and found the parts at this site and they were less than the minimum service call charge for a service tech so I figured what the heck let's give her a shot so I did give it a shot. I ordered the parts and they were there in less time than a service tech could come out and i installed the parts and guess what for 90.00 in parts and 15 minutes in time I repaired my refrigerator. Thanks guys, It took less time to order the parts than it did to make the repair so thanks, your website rocks and is very well designed so my hat is off to you guys!

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!!!

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.

Evaporator coil froze up - not going into defrost mode so no airflow from freezer to refrigerator
Used our booklet that came with the Amana refrigerator/freezer (side-by-side). Removed the necessary panels to access the parts. Used nutdriver and screw driver to replace the three parts. No special tools were required to replace the part and they were easily accessible after removing the panels.

Working like a charm now! Thanks to Part Select for carrying the parts, as Amana does not sell the parts anymore. It's a great side-by-side and we were so happy not to have to get rid of it due to not being able to buy parts.

Refrigerator and freezer was not "working " ,ice machine not working.
Removing the panels inside the freezer section was the most difficult ,because it is narrow,hard to fit your body inside compartment, in order to cut wires and to splice Bi-metal Defrost Thermostat wires (2 ) Watch the videos on the web site so you know where to start. First time I ever "repaired " a large appliance, saved me over $ 600.00 (that's what the people I bought the Refrigerator from wanted to charge me.) My parts cost 65.00 !!!!! My younger brother turned me onto the web site... , I'll be returning to the site and telling my friends about it. It's a total "rip off" what service organizations charge the general public these days from Car Dealer ships to the stores we purchase our appliances from. !!! Glad I still have my health and faculties to repair the essentials we have around our homes. !!!!

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!!

Todays appliances are junk. Read the feedback from owners. Decided to buy and refurb an older unit.
Replaced these items to upgrade refrigerator. Also replaced ice maker, water valve and condensor fan motor and blade. Replaced worn or broken shelving parts. Total cost was worth the effort for the quality of finished product as compared to what is on the market today!

Replace compressor start relay
Open back panel bottom cover (4ea 1/4" metal screws) of appliance and located compressor. A little extra cleaning of all the dust accumulated over coils to allow better airflow. This was a lot more to do than just the relay, I had to elevate the fridge 6" or so to get access to the coils, tight area to get vacuum into. The relay is easy to reach then connected to compressor by contact Pins. Relay was secured by small wire clip, Removed wire clip and relay with Capacitor mounted to top was removed by pulling it straight out (with a little wiggling) and the two wire plug then removed. Needed a small screw driver to release pin locks on the plug. With relay removed it displayed same symptoms as noted on other repairs on the site. Lose insulator material fell out of relay and rattled. (not a good thing).. Before replacing selected the correct relay for this compressor (3 in kit) matches noted in instructions from kit and simply reversed the removal. It took a while for fridge to cool again. All works fine, maybe even a little better. Cleaning helps.

The freezer defrosted and everything on the top and the bottom spoiled
i had used your web site before and i read several problems that your readers had. i went to the back of the unit, removed the bottom cover and right there the i found the run capacitor and i chaged it. since i had only ordered this part to save money i went back and ordered the Start Device which when i took it off it was completely burned. the replacement part came labeled with 2 different compressor #, so i picked the one that i had and unpluged each wire. the part may differ from the one that it's in the unit but it worked when i pluged everything back on. it also helps to take a picture of everything before removing the wires in case you have to leave it and come back later. i hope to use this refrigerator another 10 years. thank you all for your help.

Clicking noise, getting louder. Then stopped cooling
1. Empty your fridge. Lighter is easier to move and this is the hardest step in the fix. 2. Move your fridge so you can get behind it. Unplug the fridge. 3. Use a 1/4in nut driver to remove the screws from the back panel. 4. Remove the back panel. 5. Locate the compressor (big cylinder, usually black) and find the capacitor (PS11757023) and start dev (PS11750123) plugged into the side of the compressor. 6. There is a steel spring restraint wire, remove this. 7. Remove the pin connector (plastic w/ wires going to it) by pressing and pulling gently. Remove the old capacitor and start dev. 8. Assemble the new capacitor and start dev to each other. 9. Plug the pin connector into the new replacement components. 10. Align the start dev to the location of the old components. There is a 3 pin outlet that aligns to the 3 plug holes on the start dev. Align the plug then push gently but firmly to seat the components back together. 11. Reinstall the restraint wire. 12. Reinstall the pack panel. 13. Put your refrigerator back in place and load it up! You're all done!
