I just replaced the start relay (start device) on our KitchenAid side by side refrigerator. The new relay I received was exactly like the original except it did not come with the plug in capacitor. I simply plugged the original capacitor in the new relay, plugged the relay onto the compressor, plugged the red/white cable into the relay. The fridge is working fine now. My question is, the new relay came with a black plastic housing that covers it while installed on the compressor. However, this n

Frigidaire compressor model # FRT21LRGW5...replaced overload relay..compressor still buzzes for 15 sec then clicks...gets very hot soon after. Just blows warm air...did not come with icemaker. Places want to charge $200 for new compressor and $50-$60 just to walk in the house...Fridge is past warranty (8yrs old). Any chance of replacing the compressor myself? Do new compressors come with refrigerant already inside? I'm finding compressors with electrical for $150-$180 online all over the place

My kegerator recently stopped cooling. When I plug it in the fan starts up and then compressor starts for a second and there is a clicking noise and it turns off. I replaced the relay and start/run capacitor. The only two remaining parts I can order are the overload and the compressor itself...is the compressor dead?


The overload relay is the likely problem. See if it is burnt looking or if it rattles when you shake it. Or just replace it. It's not expensive. If that's not the problem then it's the compressor. ... True TDD-2CT Beverage Cooler

For the last 2 weeks I've been hearing a clicking noise for about 10-15 sec. with my Amana AFD2535DES fridge. Suddenly, everything stopped cooling meaning both the fridge and refrigerator portion. After reading on this help board, I changed out the relay/overload capacitor and it started working great. Then the noise starting coming back, not nearly as often and the compressor is getting very hot, but the unit still works (I unplug it at night for an hour or two and let the compressor cool off).

My bev air bm23 kegerator wont cool. the fan works like it is suppose to inside 24/7. The fan outside works as well. There is a hhhmmm sound and then a click. It thought it was the compressor so i took the back apart and found the clicking coming from RELAY (TI) (9660-071-161). I have no idea what that does. Could it be that easy all i have to do is replace the relay. Help please!!!!!!


Yes replacing the relay may fix the problem. You want to replace all the start parts. Overload, relay, and capacitor if one is present. Your unit is probably 1/3 horse power or less. You may be able to install a universal 3N1 starter from Supco, rate ... Beverage-Air BM23

Our Kenmore Elite Side by Side refrigerator stopped cooling. I replaced the start relay device like suggested (it rattled). I put on the new one (no rattle) and the compressor still would not start. Just the clicking noise occasionly like before. If the compressor is locked up can I hit it with a rubber mallett to unstick it and order a new relay. Or should I just give up? If I need to replace the compressor that is more than I am willing to shell out. The fridge is only 7 years old.


On occasion your compressor windings can be damaged from the starting components going bad. Or like you said the comp is locked up which in turn damaged the starting components from them continually trying to start the compressor. Either way it sound ...

Hi, My fridge side by side Mod 106.53532300, its relay has broken and I order start device kit (pn 8201786). There are two relays in the package_ pn 2188829 (start dev and 2188830 Start-device, combination (start relay and overload) for production compressor only).

Last year I had a problem with my Amana ARB2557CSR (approx 5 years old then/almost 6 now). Now it almost seems like the same problem all over again, i.e. it is now "cycling" every 30 seconds or so with a high frequency/buzzing sound. Fortunately the freezer and refrigerator are both still cold but think I'm living on borrowed time. Last time, I replaced the overload relay and capacitor. Although that seemed to help for awhile and the fridge has been working since, it never really solved the prob

Hi!, The freezer of my refrigerator Model (ASD2624HEW) stopped working. It kept making a clicking followed by a humming noise. I replaced the relay overload with the start capacitor unit, but nothing changed the clicking noise is gone but i hear a short humming noise instead. I placed a thermometer in the freezer and it went down to 57 degrees. Can you please help? Thank you.

I have a GE Fridge Model # GSS25JFMD WW. The compressor has stopped working completely. All other fans and lights seem to work but when I plug in the fridge the compressor will not start. I have been told it could be the overload, relay or capacitor. I pulled the capacitor and it looks fine. I attached my resistance meter to it and I saw the electical charge discharging so I think it may be ok. I tested all 3 pins that are attached to the overload and relay or PTC I guess they call it.

I have a GE side by side refrig. I want to install a 3n1 start capacitor. The instructions with the product are quite clear on wiring to the run capacitor and the compressor but offer no help on how to attach the two line wires.

How do I hook this thing up to be sure it is controlled by the thermostat a

The start relay on my Kitchenaid Side by Side burned up. A kit which included the relay and overload devices were installed. The capacitor, which was across the relay, was not reinstalled nor replaced. The wiring diagram for the fridge shows the capacitor as optional. What are the advantages and disadvantages of having the capacitor installed?
