You do not need the capacitor or the overload or the relay,The kit has all of them thangs built in to it. Basically that hard start has 5 wires. You put red to the right(run). Black at the top (common) and white to the left pin(start). All you need to do with the other 2 wires is hook 120 volts to them. Usually your ice box will have a red and a white wire coming down from the cold control. That is what you hook the 2 ***** wires 2. If you have a condenser motor to contend with then hook it up parallel in the circuit. What do I mean by parallel? Instead of running everything in one big continuous circle you piggyback the fan motor on top of the hard start power wires so that both items will get the same amount of power.

From your description, you have a bad evaporator fan motor. The part number for a replacement motor is #5304445861.This is not a direct replacement but is more reliable.Remove everything in the freezer, take off the back panels and you will see the fan.
If there is a large frost buildup on the coils and the fan is turning you have a defrost problem. If that is the case, please call me at 334-347-0000 and I will walk you through it.

SOURCE: lights flashing all cooling appears normal ice maker flap continually opens and shuts no water buttons not operational

As I mentioned before my Maytag was doing the same thing, I called Maytag expecting a big fight but they were really nice about it.
This is a recall problem and even if your warrenty is up Maytag will repair it at NO COST to you.
They shiped me the HV board and sent a repairman who had it fixed in about 10 minutes with a newley designed HV board.

CHECK THE DEFROST HEATER FOR CONTINUITY. IF IT IS O.K. CHECK THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL FOR A FAULTY SOLDER CONNECTION ON THE DEFROST RELAY. THE ELECTRONIC BOARD SHOULD BE LOCATED ON THE BACK WALL OF THE REFIGERATOR BEHIND AN ACCESS PANEL.

Kenmore model 105.53534300 side by side refridgerator not cooling


Relays are located on the left side of the compressor. How long ago did you smell the burning smell? Are you 100% sure the compressor is running? If it is, nothing is wrong with the relays. Although sometimes it is hard to tell if the compressor is running. By morning temps will be higher than tonight if compressor isnt running. If it isnt running, relays must be changed. I will post shortly on how to change the relays.

My refrigerator quit cooling, not making any noises just not cooling how do I test the relay on the side of the compressr


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
The relay works on the principle that when voltage is connected and the relay is cool and under working condition, current passes through the relay to start winding. After a short time, current passing through the relays heats the resistor installed in the relay and causes increase in the relay resistance which causes blockage to the current through the relay and it trips (turns off the current to the compressor unit).
There are different techniques for different models to test the relay. Here is a general technique to check the working.
Physically you can observe the burn marks or burning smell from the component. If there is excessive burn smell or heat from the unit, the unit is faulty. Solid state relay plugs directly on compressor start and run terminals. Relay terminals 2 & 3 are connected within the relay. Run capacitor is connected to relay terminal 3. L2 side of 120 or 220 VAC power is connected to relay terminal 2. Locate these terminals. Please make sure that you have disconnected the refrigerator power. Remove the relay cover (if any) and disconnect the leads/jack. Check the resistance across 2 & 3 terminals. It should be less than or around 100 ohms or so( You get a proper reading ).If it shows 0ohm its short and if it shows infinite ohms its open... We'll there could be multiple reasons for which the refrigerator had quit cooling. Relay is one of that. You need to workout all the possibilities in order for the trouble free working of the unit.

Hope this is all you need to know,

Best of Luck,

Please do Rate the solution, As a token of appreciation,

Concerned.

Frigidaire Side By Side Not Cooling


That sounds like the start relay is buzzing. Unplug and lets check the compressor to see how hot and if too hot to hold your hand on the top of compressor we need to leave it unplugged until we find out if the start relay, start capacitor, overload or if the condenser fan stops after running a short while.

Frigidaire Refrigerator not cooling


Is the fan on the bottom on? Do you hear the compressor kick off and on within a minute? No/ Is the evaporator fan running? Do you have frost on the evaporator? Frost is a sign that the defrost isnt working. If evap fan doesnt run it wont cool the refrigerator. If everything is running and no frost buildup in freezer then you have a sealed system problem and need of a tech.

Frigidaire Model # FRS23R4A - Not cooling


wihtout replacing the relay there really isnt any way to tell if its the compressor or the relay. the relay is veyr inexpensive in comparison to the compressor usually less than 70 bucks. and the best part is you can replace it yourself as opposed to paying a service company. this is the part number 218721113 and it prices at 38 dollars thru  sears.com.
once you replace the part if the compressor starts you should be ok. if it doesnt start then you will need to call a service company to replae the compressor or look at replaing the refrig. if the unit is less than 5 years old it may be under warranty for the compressor so check into that first. if I can be of further assistance dont hesitate to ask. thanks Peyton
