Hooking up a supco 3n1 in a samsung rs2530bbp?

I would avoid even using this device. there is a good possibility it will burn out your compressor. Most compressors have a run capacitor tat improves the power use and if it is not in the circuit the compressor can be damaged. I advise using the correct start device for this unit.

Blue and white wires to compressor got wet, shorted and burned. Can scorched recepticles work again?

Cut back and rejoin the wires and run it to see! Failing that get a new universal solid state relay kit from Supco

Supco wiring an old freezer. Orange wire?

Was the orange wire on a switched live on the old compressor connections? It may come on when the compressor goes off in that case. If not, recheck the schematic for the other end of the heater. If it has a neutral, join the orange to the live feed to the supco. If it has a live, leave the orange on the neutral of the supco.

I washed my kenmore freezer top fridge out with a waterhose spayed it down really good. I let it sit in the garage over a week with the doors propped open. The garage gets 100 degrees anytime the sun hits...

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.

Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it. (Thermostat)
If it runs then that cold control (Thernostat) is the problem.
If that doesn't work DO THIS:
The relay on the compressor may need replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.

Compessor will not come on. I hit the compressor with my hand and it came on until the fridge was cold again and it shut off. Now it will not come on again.

You need to replace the overload/relay , plugged onto the side of the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires going to it . When you hit the compressor , the jolt , reset the overload .

I have 20 yeras old Maytag model GT1928PVCW which we were very happy. Unfortauantly it just stop cooling. Fans steel working but no cooling. Is it possible to repair

Yes it is, for sure. We just need to diagnose the problem. First, if you unit has ice on the back inside wall of the freezer, you have a defrost problem that can mostlilely be solved by replacing the defrost heater. If not, we will move on.
If you can read a wiring diagram, go to and enter your model number. This will bring up a blown up diagram so you can locate evey part or you unit plus your in luck, it also has wa wiring diagram included. By looking a the wiring diagram, there are only four thing that will prevent your compressor from running.
  1. Temp control
  2. Defrost timer
  3. Run cap.,Over load, PTC Relay
Checking temp control/ Take the two wires from part and connect together. If the unit starts running, you will need to replace control.
Defrost timer/ It has a round piece in the front of it with a slot on each side of the round piece that will let you turn it in only one direction. You can take a flat blade screw driver and turn. This advances the timer. Turn until you hear it click. If unit starts running, replace timer.
Run capacitor, overload and PTC relay/ If you can hear the compressor clicking around every 5 to 10 seconds, you will need to replace the part. The bast thing to do is replace all three pieces with a Supco 3 in 1. You can search Supco 3 in 1 and find one on the web. If you can use a meter, you might want to check your compressor to see if the windings are grounded. Take anyone of the 3 post coming out of the compressor and check continuity between it and ground. If it has continuity, it's bad and will cost a lot to replace. Also check for continuity between each post. If there is continuity, this is great and the Supco 3 in 1 will fix the problem. I have made this as simple as I know how but I also know that it's not simple to peolpe that don't work on these everyday like myself. I hope you the best and good luck. If you have anymore questions, please respond back and I'll do my best.

Compressor problem, installing the Supco 3-in-1 Relay

Hi, If the 3 posts are top center and bottom right left, the black wire goes top the top center post. The red wire will go to the bottom right and the white goes to bottom left.
If the posts are bottom center and top right left, the black goes on bottom center and the red goes top left. The white goes top right.
If you do not see a capacitor, disregaurd the wires in the 3-1
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Whirlpool Beverage Center (WBC127BLS) - Won't cool enough

If you're handy with a soldering iron, it's possible to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down a few more degrees.

Long version:
If you open the door to the fridge, on the right wall near the bottom is a small plastic grate. You should be able to pull this straight out from the side wall. There is a temperature sensor attached to the back of the grate. Unplug the sensor. (The fridge will then give you a very annoying error beep and display "EE" on the readout. Pushing the °F-°C button stopped the beeping.) This sensor will change resistance with temperature. (The lower the temperature, the higher the resistance) I was reading a resistance of about 3700 ohms at 43°F and 2460 ohms at 68°F. Throw in a rough assumption that the response is linear and it works out to almost 50ohms/degree. In order to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down more, you need to drop the resistance. I was aiming for about 6 degrees cooler. Assuming the resistance response was linear, 6 degrees cooler would give me about 4000 ohms from the sensor. By jumpering a 50000 ohm resistor (yes, 50K ohm) in parallel with the sensor, I should get about 6 degrees cooler. I did the soldering, plugged the sensor back in, and ended up about 8 degrees cooler. Two days so far, everything appears good and the beer is cold.

Short version:
Put a 50K ohm resistor in parallel with the temperature sensor behind the grate on the inside right hand wall.

The temperature read out will be inaccurate forever after though. But then, I just want cold beer, my wife wants cold water, and the kids want to play with the cool blue light. I don't care what the number on the readout is.
