Question about LG LRBN22514ST Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
My 4-year-old LG fridge needs a new "overload relay". I already removed the original relay, which definitely had the classic "broken pieces sound" when you shake it. Like when a light bulb dies and the filament breaks.
I should have taken a picture of the relay while it was still connected to the wires, because now I don't remember which wires to connect to each part. I have purchased replacement kit part (#4387535)
Here is a link to photo of the 2 parts I need to connect RED, BLUE, BLACK wires to.
As you can see in the photo, the brown part has 4 metal connectors (I don't know what else to call them), and each is numbered (1, 2, 3, 4) I remember that 2 of the colored wires go to 2 of these connectors. And the 3rd colored wire goes to the white part in the photo.
The part came in a plastic bag with no instructions. I'm sorry I don't know the technical terms. If anyone can help with straightforward instructions, I can get my fridge running again!! Thanks!
The easiest way to find this out , is to check the condenser. Make sure that the condenser is not clogged up with dust and that the condenser fan is working. Replace the start relay. Turn it back on. If it starts right up then it probably overheated and melted the relay due to the condenser fan not working or the condenser clogged with dust. Air circulation through the condenser and air being circulated over the compressor in how it cools itself. If the compressor will not start or if it runs for a little while and then shuts off from overheating, then you have a bad compressor.
