Product Description

Compressor Relay and Overload Kit Specifications

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.

    Trying to replace compressor relay (4387535). Has 2 connecting plug on wires. Do both wires simply pull off and plug onto new part. I have one wire connection that is stubborn. Do I just pull on connector (black) harder? Is there a secret to removing the connector?
    For model number ED22TEXHW02
    Hello Ed, thank you for the question. They should just pull off and plug back into place. You may need to put a bit of pressure and wiggle them to come loose. We hope this helps!

        Refrigerator stop working
        First I removed the relay and over load and exam. Saw that the relay was burnt. Before I order the part I check to see if the compressor was still working by jumping the common start and run terminals.It did. I also checked the start capacitor with a capacitor tester it was good. I than order the part which came the very next day.Installed the part

        Starting relay went out
        Forty years ago I serviced air conditioners and all kinds of refrigeration. At that time starting relays were electro mechanical, I hadn’t looked under a refrigerator in a lot of years and was surprised to find out that the new relays were solid state. The defective one had a bunch of broken pieces floating around in the case. I jury rigged a starting cord and confirmed that the compressor would start and looked at running current for thirty or so seconds. I ordered a new relay kit and it worked just right. I’m seventy five years old and it takes me longer to get up off the floor than it took to replace the parts. Your delivery was first rate the parts got here before I finished doing the paint touch-up on the door under the ice maker/water dispenser. Fed ex was easily three to five days faster than the brown truck.

        Cimpressor would not start
        Checked compressor with amp meter, and found it was not running, found Overload Switch bad.
        When removing old switch watch carefully which lug you move wires from, so you will know which
        lug to put the new switch on.

        BE SURE YOU KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT
        ELECTRICITY!!

        Removed the old parts then connected the new parts.
        The compressor immediately started when I plugged the refrigerator back in. Around 24 hours later the freezer compartment was at 0 degrees, and the refrigerator was at 35 degrees.
