Question about Kenmore 50522 / 50524 Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a Kirkland side-by-side fridge made by whirlpool. The start device relay (2212194) fried itself so I went to my local parts store and bought a replacement (8201786). Problem I have now is the instructions say to use part 2187145 for the EGY80 and the 2154697 for the EGY90. I have the EGY90 so I looked for the 2154697 but it wasn't part of the kit. There are two relays in the kit and they are 2188829 and 2188830, which the instructions say to use for a different style.
These new relays are similar to my old one but the connections are way different, and the only way that I could ever connect them would be to cut off the old connectors on the wires and install completely different ones. The new relays appear that they would install onto the compressor OK, it's the wires that come from the different plugs and components that would plug onto the front side of the relay that are different.
When I called the place that sold the kit to me they said that that was the correct kit that was called for for the part number that gave them. Plus, there are several other components in the kit. One small black part that I have no idea where it would go, and these two other white and black parts that appear the same as what's already part of the relay. What am I supposed to do with these?
Am I supposed to reterminate the wiring in order to make this new relay fit?
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)
