Product Description

Compressor Start Device Kit Specifications

This kit includes the Relay, Overload and cover. The start relay briefly boosts the compressor, and then shuts off as soon as the motor gets up to speed and the Overload provides added protection for the compressor motor because, in addition to protecting against excessive current, it also protects against excessive temperature use.

    Refrigerator will only kick on if i turn it off and back on again, from the control on the inside. Is this a good part to start with to correct?
    For model number ED25UEXHW00
    Hello Ken, Thank you for the question. You may have an issue with the Thermostat Assembly, PartSelect Number PS11739232. This thermostat assembly is used in refrigerator units and freezers as a sensor. The thermostat senses the temperature increase in the evaporator during the cycle of defrosting and turns off when ice is melted. If you have any of the following symptoms, replacing your appliance could solve the problem: fridge does not start, is too warm, too cold, runs too long, or will not start. Both the Thermostat and Start Device can be tested with a Multi Meter. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!

        Refrigerator stopped cooling
        First I called a repair man to diagnos the problem. He said it was the starter relay and gave me a quote for $300.
        I looked online and found the part at PartSelect for $55 delivered.
        I took the back panel off the fridge, unplugged the appliance to stop the flow of electricity (forgot to do that once) and after ensuring the electricity was off, I cut the wiring to the starter relay. After pulling back the wire casing and reconnecting to the new started relay the compressor turned back on and the fridge started cooling again within about an hour.
        This took roughly 30 minutes to complete and saved me around $250!

        Refrigerator was clicking from underneath and not cooling or freezing.
        First I turned off my refrigerator, called for service, and had the problem diagnosed as a bad start relay. The repairman checked the compressor to see if it too was bad. The compressor was fine so I ordered the part I needed from PartSelect. After receiving the new start relay and overload from PartSelect, I unplugged the refrigerator, pulled it out and removed the screws from the lower back panel with the socket set and screwdriver. I removed the white self contained start relay box from the compressor by gently prying it off with a flat edge screw driver. I carefully disconnected the red and white wires from the broken start relay with pliers and followed the step by step directions that came with the replacement parts (the start relay and overload were separate components, not inside a self contained box like the original part). I proceeded to attach each part to the compressor, reconnect the red and white wires, and attach the new cover. I vacuumed out the area around the compressor and the condensor coils, plugged in the refrigerator, and turned it on. It worked immediately. I screwed the back cover on and pushed it back in place. Within 24 hours the ice maker was nearly full and I saved $225 by doing it myself.

        Fan and Light working but would not cool down inside
        This problem first accrued when the unit was under warranty and the repair person told me this would happen again. This technician told me how to troubleshoot the problem and sure enough the Compressor Start Relay was bad again. For starters I moved the refrigerator out from the wall and cabinets. I unplugged the wall cord from the receptacle. I removed the screws, with a ¼ inch spin-tight that held the backing in front of the compressor compartment. I disconnected the two wires then pulled the Start-Dev PS991485 out and it rattled, a good sign the relay was bad. I looked up the Part on the Web Site and ordered the replacement relay, I thought. When the package arrived I found all the parts for the entire Starting and over Temp Protection circuits along with a new plastic cover box. This was a very good experience and I saved maybe $250.00 in repair costs by doing it my self, along with the replacement instruction that came with the parts.

        Compressor would not operate, very hot.
        Removed back cover, noticed the start relay was a Klixon figured it was bad(they don't make a good relay);
        Checked voltage going to compressor: 115V;
        Checked ohms: C-S-R 4.3-4.2-4.5;
        Checked ground: open;

        Replaced start relay.
        Compressor fired right up when plugged in.
