Product Description

Compressor Start Relay Specifications

The compressor start relay attaches to the compressor in your refrigerator. If your refrigerator will not start, one of the most common parts to fail is the compressor start relay. Sometimes called the controller, this device is used to boost the compressor until the unit is running. Other common symptoms connected to start relays include: refrigerator will not start, will not cool, is making a clicking, humming or buzzing sound, or the compressor itself is warm to the touch. You may also smell a burnt plastic odor if the relay has failed. Shake the relay and listen for any rattling, as this is a sign that it is faulty.

    I moved a 1988 Gibson and now it trips the GFI, I plugged into non-GFI and tests showed no power at the compressor, but the door light works. Can you help?
    For model number RT17F9WU3
    Hello Dean, Thanks for your question. You may want to test the compressor's start relay with a multimeter to see if it has continuity, and replace it if it shows no continuity. The part number for your model's relay is PS453311. I hope this helps.

        The compressor would not run.
        I removed the cover, used a multimeter to test the compressor circuit, and found the compressor start relay to be defective.
        Ordered a new one and installed it when it arrived.

        Compressor was short cycling
        Removed the cowling with a square drive screw driver, removed the spring clip from the cover of the compressor controls with a screw driver, pulled off the old compressor start relay and replaced it with the new part. Since other problems could have caused the compressor to short cycle this was a "replace the part and hope it would work" since that would be the most common reason and it was not a very expensive part.

        refrigerator stopped cooling
        After the refrigerator stopped cooling, we determined that the problem was in the compressor area. we used a screwdriver to get the cover off and then vice grips to get the actual pieces out (start relay & overload)--they broke, but they were already broken). We went to the Home Depot site to purchase the parts, but found PartSelect to be much less expensive. Put the parts in when they came a few days later and it worked! thank you PartSelect!

        Freezer would not run ... replace the compressor start relay which fixed the problem
        Pulled out the freezer. Unplugged. No freezer back cover was there. The compressor start relay was in a plastic encasement attached to the compressor - wires led me to it. Removed the solid metal spring with a screwdriver and removed the plastic cover. Tried to pull out the defective relay but the freezer was so old I needed a pliers to remove it. When I put pressure on the old relay with the pliers the relay broke and came off in pieces. I then removed the wires from the broken parts and put them on the new relay. I pushed the new relay onto the 2 pins then replaced the cover and spring. After plugging the freezer in the problem was fixed.
