Compressor stopped running, freezer stopped freezing
Upon Inspection of electrical connections I found the controller connector slightly melted, so I ordered a replacement and the other parts, given the freeezers age.
Replacement efforts were close to plug and play.
Compressor powered back up And freezer is now functioning again.

Compressor would not start.
I watched You Tube on how to repair it the instructions that came were shit. I'm a stickler for wire colors being correct, could find that information in the instructions. Everything is on you tube I love you tube. The fix is is easy peasy. I'm not stupid eather there is nothing on that frig I could not repair if I can get parts even the compressor I can braze to. I know how it all works I never call repair people I will throw it all in the garbage if I can't get parts. That goes for TV's cars you name it. I have tools for all things.

Freeze would not re-start after temp rose above 23 degrees.
Unplugged the freezer. Located the Run Capacitor (next to the compressor). Removed the wire holding bracket, removed the Run Capacitor from the Start Relay. Installed the NEW Capacitor, re-installed the holding bracket. Plugged the unit in, looking at the display for the proper start-up sequence data. All is good - freezer operating for another 10+ yrs. NOTE: When removing the Run Capacitor, beware the COMPRESSOR could be HOT to the touch.

Freezer compressor quit running causing freezer to defrost and ruin all contents.
Very simple repair. Removed the bail that holds the compressor controller and run capacitor from the compressor, removed the controller & capacitor, inserted a very small screwdriver into the controller to compress the barbs that hold the electrical wires to the controller. Plugged in the wires to the new controller in the same position as the original, plugged in the capacitor and then plugged the entire unit back onto the compressor, replaced the wire bail, plugged in the freezer and repair was complete.

Faulty Controller and Possibly Capacitor
After building a test box and determining the Controller was bad simply ordered parts and installed. Installation was a little difficult due to locking spades on electrical connections.

Unplug all power from freezer. Remove Bail wire from controller capacitor unit and remove from compressor by pulling STRAIGHT from compressor body to avoid bending contacts.

Use a very small instrumentation screwdriver to release locking spade on yellow and white wires. To unlock slide screwdriver in slot along wire entry to controller body while gently pulling on wire. Note position of wires and replace on new unit in same position/order. Plug new run capacitor into new controller being careful to orient capacitor to proper position (hole matches guide on controller unit). Plug newly installed controller and capacitor into condensor and replace bail wire.

Make sure timer is not in defrost mode - manually advance timer if necessary to ensure timer is in run mode. Turn temperature control to coldest setting. Plug in and hopefully enjoy the humming noise of your newly repaired and operational compressor and freezer.

I replaced the evap motor due to the fan trying to start . Even after the new motor it still does the same thing. Tries to start for a long period of time . Every now and then it will start. Any ideas ?
For model number FRS23R4CW2
PartSelect logo
Hi Jim, Thank you for your inquiry. Where the evaporator fan motor is taking a long time to start you will need to verify if the part is getting any voltage at the part's terminal leads. You will need to test it with a multimeter. If there is no voltage reaching the motor there may be a broken wire between the motor and the thermostatic control. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

What is the resistance (Ohms) check for the Run Capacitor part #PS817298, #218909912?
For model number LFFU17F5HWD
PartSelect logo
Hi Ronald, thank you for reaching out. To test the capacitor, part number PS817298, you may first discharge it, and then follow the instructions below: 1- You may use either a digital or analog multimeter. If you are using an analog multimeter, rotate the selection dial to the high setting for ohms of resistance. 2- Now calibrate the meter by pinching the leads together while adjusting the needle to read zero. 3- When using a digital model, again rotate the dial to the high setting for ohms of resistance. 4- Touch each of the probes to one terminal. 5- The meter display should display or deflect towards zero ohms and then return towards infinite resistance if the capacitor is working properly. We hope this information is useful!
