Replacing a relay switch on a Kenmore Side by Side

Have a Kenmore Elite 106.5360202 side by side that has stopped cooling. I think it may be the relay switch. Where is the relay switch located and is it something that can be easily changed

The start run relay kicks the compressor on. If your compressor is running this is not your problem.
There are a number of things that can cause a fridge not to cool. A bad defrost system.. Check to see if you have ice build up in the freezer, or a lot of frost. Also a bad compressor. The relay switch sits on the compressor at the back of the fridge. If you put a new relay on and it won't start the compressor you have a bad compressor. Most compressors are warrantied through the manufacturer for at least 5 years. So if it's that call the manufacturer for replacement.

Side by side Kenmore Elite, Mod. 52794100. both sides have stopped coolding/freezing. There is a click, buss, click. Cleaned coils 6 weeks ago. Someone suggested it could be the starter switch?


Hello,
Is that buzzing/click you hear from the compressor area?
If it is from their, the relay on the compressor has gone out, OR the compressor is locked up.To determine which of those it is the amprage draw using a amp meter clamped to the wire on the overload thermostat where the relay is, must be measured, if 17 or higher amps the compressor has locked up, if its around 5 or so the relay has gone out and replacing both relay and overload will fix it.If the compressor has locked that is a major repair and may cost up to $1200

Freezer works Refrigerator will not cool down


The compressor should be OK this time because you caught it in time. But if the condenser fan stops you need to consider replacing the fan. I have had refrigerators do fine until the fan motor warms up and you are away, it stops. Don't think you should use the refrigerator until the fan is fixed. Sea Breeze

My Kenmore side by side stopped cooling


I think your compressor has given up the ghost. Yes it is possible that it could be a relay problem but not likely.

Kenmore Elite refrigerator stops cooling - Relay keeps cycling


the relay on the compressor is most likely the culprit part# 8201786 you can buy it at the local sears parts and repair center it is very easy to replace it. your refrig compartment will start warming up soon. to prevent damage to your compressor probably a good idea to unplug the refrig until you get the part replaced..
