Hello Charlie Hough - Usually this type of information is not release to someone who is not a technician and it is very rare to find enough information to do it yourself. In most cases this information can be found on the internet; however it is not provided directly from the manufacturer. Typically this is something that you want a certified professional to install/remove for you due to safety and liability reasons. They also usually warranty their labor just in case something else may turn out to be the root cause of your initial problem and it does work out better to your advantage. Consider contacting your manufacturer for more details on who in your area can properly repair/install this part (part usually have a 30 day warranty with tech). I would suggest contacting your manufacturer to provide you a listing of authorized technicians in your area whom may guide you through this process.

might be your compressor relay gone bad. if the condenser fan was running and no compressor that could be the case. Also could be a bad compressor. you could try installing a 3in1 start kit. cost about $30. if doesn't start with that then compressor is kaput.

Does outside temperature affect performance of freezer


Top mount refrigerator installed in a garage and the food in the freezer is defrosting when
the temperature in the garage goes below 55 degrees fahrenheit.
On top mount refrigerators you cycle the compressor and fan/fans from the food
compartment temperature. When the room temperature gets colder than 55 F, you have
long off times waiting for the food compartment to warm enough to trip the cold control.
This long off time is allowing the freezer temperature to get high enough that food can start
to defrost.
There is a kit for refrigerators installed in applications where the temperature can go as low
as 34 F and still maintain good freezer temperatures. The kit part number is 5303918301
and it contains a heater that mounts in the control box and an instruction sheet advising
how to install the heater.
Kit 5303918301 contains:
Part # 5303950194 Instruction sheet
Part # 241532101 Heater

Mulitple problems with my side by side


Sorry to hear you had so many problems. but DONT LET THAT GUY NEAR YOUR REFRIGERATOR!! If he indeed replaced the compresser it should have come with a new start relay and overload that would have been installed at the time the compresser was replaced. the kit he put on was a Hard start kit for compressers having problems staerting up .....but you stated he Just replaced the compresser right? so why should you need a hard start kit installed? the compresser may not be installed properly or the coreect freon charge placed in the unit. or has a leak in his solder joints but by no means should you have to install a hard start kit on a NEW compresser Hope this helps you. BTW Did he give you any Warrty.? if so you should not pay him anything until he fixes the problem

COMPRESSOR


If you are in the USA
A compressor must be replaced by a certified refrigeration technician due to federal laws about proper handling of refrigerant. Also, all the joints must be soldered together with a torch, this is not a job for an amature.
If the fridge is less than 5 yrs old it should still be covered by the sealed system warranty and repaired at no charge.
I do know that the compressors for many of the SxS fridgidaires have been on back order due to a change to a different brand of replacement compressor. I recently waited 2 1/2 weeks on one I had ordered for a customer.
Once the tech has the compressor it is usually about a 2 hr job to replace, depending on the model.
Most of the parts dealers you contact will be hesitant to sell a compressor to someone that is not in the repair buisness, due to warranty claims if it is not installed properly. If you want to get one yourself you should be able to order it through Sears if you can't find it anywhere else. Go to sears.com, click on parts and enter the complete model number from the sticker in the refrigerator. If your model isn't listed you can call the 800 number on their site.
Hope this helps.
