    Fridge sounds like it wants to start. Will click and surge to start for up to three minutes. Starter relay?
    For model number PLHS269ZCB3
    Hi Joseph, Thank you for the question. It would be the Start Relay, Part Number: PS3502347 or the Run Capacitor, Part Number: PS3495561. The Capacitor helps the compressor kick on and off and the start relay briefly boosts the compressor, and then shuts off as soon as the motor gets up to speed. You can replace both parts or test them with a Multi Meter to check for correct resistance. Hope this helps!

    I have been given the following part number for the repair 4387913, but the part looks identical the part that I found here for the question that I am asking on. I would like the overload relay, capacitor, but the part number referenced above makes me a little nervous to order it since it looks so different than the one that I found.
    For model number 106.63289301
    Hi Tim, Thank you for your question. This would not be the correct start relay device listed for your refrigerator. The part number listed under your model number for the compressor start relay is PS12584621. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    For model number 970R424133
    Hello Candido, Thank you for the question. Sadly, we do not have any information on the model number you provided. Could you please verify the number you provided us with? If it is correct, I recommend contacting the manufacturer and seeing if they could provide you with a part number, and then you are always welcome to check back to see if we carry the part. Hope this helps!

    How to unplug relay switch
    For model number 970-671023
    Hi Shelia, thank you for your question. You should just be able to unplug them however if it is a little too secure you can use a flat head screw driver to help push the wires from the terminals. Good luck with your repair.

    The freezer motor keeps turning on and off...it blows cold air but struggles to stay on. will this part fix the issue or any other suggestions
    For model number plhs269zcb3
    Hello and thank you for writing. It certainly sounds like it could be a faulty run capacitor PS3495561 and/or possibly a faulty start relay PS3502347, you should check for signs of damage, and replace if necessary. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime if you require further assistance.

    Is there a trick to getting the plug out of the old one? We are afraid to break it in case the old part is fine.

        It was making a clicking, chirping sound every two minutes
        Took me weeks to find the noise after I checked everything electrical in the house including replacing all batteries. Finally, an electrician isolated it to the refrigerator.

        Frigidaire Model FRS26LH5DS9 Found several YouTube videos for reference.

        Replaced the Run Capacitor and Compressor Start Relay.

        Unplug and remove the back panel. On the bottom left side, detach the two old parts together from the compressor. Use a large flat screwdriver to pry them out. (They are held in place with a wire you must first remove.) Plug one new part onto the other and then insert it as one part.

        Easy Peasy. The hardest part is getting your hand in a small space and putting back the wire that holds them in.

        Don't call a repairman - fix it yourself....

        Compressor wasn’t starting most of the time
        I had a repairman here and after spending 350 dollars after 4 visits and parts, I decided to try it myself. I ordered a compressor start relay and a run capacitor. Replacement took all of 15 minutes and now runs again for the first time in a month. Thank you Parts Select. You’re the best!

        Not a original factory direct replacement part
        The housing is not the same where the wires attach. I had to cut off the plastic shroud around barbs on start relay to accept the original larger wire end Fittings.
