How to Install Overload Relay Part #4387535 (hooking up red/blue/black wires)

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.
http://www.partadvantage.com/image/wp_4387535.jpg

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!

SOURCE: The starter/overload and overload protector

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.

HELP! - My fridge freezer is not cooling - clicking sound heard but motor not coming on


Hello Michelle;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
Lets fix this together. The clicking sound that you hear is referred to as a overload relay. The overload relay is an electrical component that starts and stops you compressor. It is very common for the overload relay to fail over time.
First, locate and purchase a overload relay. If you have a Trible's
in your area that's great, if not Lander's, Sear's, .... If you can wait a few days you can get the part over the internet for half price or less.
I do not have your model number otherwise I would give you the part number.
Having the part, pull the refrigerator out where you can move freely behind it. Unplug the refrigerator. There is a bottom cover that you need to remove. This cover is fastened either with Philips or hex head screws. Remove the cover. Open the new overload relay parts and lay them before you. Study and observe them.
There is a black box on the side of the compressor which holds the overload relay. The box is held on with either metal or wire clips. Using a flat head screw driver pop the clips off. Compare the parts on the compressor with what you have. Note the location of the connecting components on the 3 compressor pins, and the first piece to put on the compressor is the white piece with the 'V'. Using your flat head screw driver, wedge the components off the compressor (Remember how they go back on). Do not pull on the wires - just the connector ends. Replace the components. Shake the white piece - if it rattles or is burned it is bad. If you can not get the black box cover back on - not necessary, it's a dust shield.
Note: If you have a LG, bottom freezer 599, do not bother. Both the overload relay & compressor need to be replaced. Buy new, not LG.

Replacing a relay and overload protector with a 3 n 1 hardstart


2 BLACK WIRES IS POWER. ONE GOES TO NEUTRAL, ANOTHER TO THE HOT WIRE(LINE) AND IT DOES NOT MATTER WICH YOU WILL HOOK UP AS LONG AS ONE OF THE BLACK WIRES HAS NEUTRAL, ANOTHER ONE POWER. AND BLACK IS GOING TO COMPRESSOR COMMON PIN, WHITE TO START PIN OF THE COMPRESSOR AND RED TO RUN. I HAD ON THIS REFRIGERATOR START AND RUN CAPACITORS, I ILLUMINATE THOSE - THEY CAN NOT BE IN THE CIRCUIT WITH 3 N 1 HARD START KIT. SOME COMPRESSOR HAVE THOSE CAPACITORS, SOME NOT. I DID NOT UNDERSTAND WHY THIS ONE HAD CAPACITORS IT WAS ONLY 1/3 HORSEPOWER. HOPE THIS HELP YOU.

Not sure how to wire Supco RO41 Relay/Overload Combo to Maytag side by side Fridge MSD2454GRW. It's a universal part, so it's different than the manufacturer's part, but I just want to see if...


while i loath those RO41 because your compressor will be dead SOON. The 2 black wires connect to the wires were connected to the wiring on FACTORY RELAY AND OVERLOAD WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY CONNECTED TO WHERE THE RED/WHITE/AND BLACK WIRES WITH THE TERMINALS NOW ARE.

my advice though is throw that thing in the trash and get factory OEM relay and overload
