Re: generic relay switch
Can you describe the relay to me?
the most common relay does have a specific place for the wire to plug onto. hold the relay with the holes that plug into the compressor upright and facing you. now turn the relay so that you are looking at the spade connectors(remember that the holes should still be upright) either one of the spades on the right side is the correct one to plug into.
if this doesnt sound like your relay message me back with a better description or a part number thx peyton

This is a thermistor. It depends where it is located how you would be changing it but the generic answer would be unplug the refrigerator. remove the old one leaving some of the leads from the old one before you cut the wires. so you have some wire to work with. Using small wire nuts or crimp connectors wire the new thermistor to the old leads from the old thermistor it is best to either fill the wire connectors or crimp connectores wirh silicone sealant or tape the connectors with electrical tape to prevent water from entering the connections. Put the thermistor into position and away you go.
The new relay only needs a switched live and a neutral. The lives for the rest can be joined together (they were on a joint connector on the old relay) and the neutrals are common anyway. The switched live is the one that comes back from the thermostat control.
Change the relay after removing plastic cover on compressor.
Pull the wire off of the side terminal of the relay. It is connected
with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the
wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers.
Inspect the connector for corrosion. If it is corroded it should be cleaned or replaced.
Reattach the wire to the new compressor relay and press the relay
back onto the compressor terminals. Replace the terminal cover box and
plug in the refrigerator.
call back whoever you ordered the parts from and tell them they sent you the wrong parts,if you gave them the model number off of the machine they should have sent you the right parts.what did the repair man tell you to do?also next time send the model number so i can look up your machine,if you don't have the model number you won't get the right parts.
if the fan run and does not freeze, possible compressor or compressor start kit. Start kits that a beating in stormy weather. Start kits consist of a relay, capicator and overload sensor. These 3 parts can be ordered seperately or a generic start kit with all the of these made in one. if the compressor is bad on a 10 year old freezer you might want to look at a new freezer
k here we go, thinkkn we can get this to work for you.
the difference is going to be the white overloads in the bag9s). depending on size of compressor they will change, as far a s the relay thinkin ther is onl one in that bag'box/ (brown with 3 possible connections..
if this is the cas e ill asume that the old relay/overload was a onepiece white plastic with smaller connectors.. .you will need to cut off and resplice a new spade connector on the wires to fiut the new piece..
the extras are just that extras, its easier for them to stock and store one part number for a multitude of repairs( youll need only one)
looked up your model number and got a part number of 8201799. is that the number you got??? cause in the pic it looks like there are 3 terminals on the relay(brown piece) there should have also been instructions in the package no???
