Unit stopped cooling. Measured circuit resistance L1 to L2, approx 10 ohms. Plugged unit in, heard a click in a few seconds. Unplugged and measured circuit resistance which indicated circuit open. ...


You'll need a 3-1 start kit. The clicking is those starting components. We shipped one out yesterday for 35.00 and that included overnight Sat. delivery the part alones was 20.00 with instructions. Very easy and the replacement kit is better than the original parts and available at most any appliance parts store. Good luck.
