The start relay on Kenmore model 596.58642890 replacement question

The original relay switch has 3 terminal contacts on the compressor side. On the wiring side it has 4 contacts... 2 are start capacitor connections and two at the bottom of the relay are the A/C 110-125 volt line in connections. The replacement part you bought is a genericreplacement for the ref. The correct substitute part is W10189190 . The two wires for the original relay in the top horizonal position evenly spaced apart... ignore the 2 wires. They are wires to the old start capacitor mounted somewhere near the compressor. The other two wires are important to configure them properly. One may be blue and the other red. Here is a cheap way to know which is the right configuration... Use a volt ohmmeter and check the continuity from the refrigerator ground terminal on the A/C line cord or chassis to both A/C line in wire connections to the relay. If the ohms are zero or very near to zero then that is the ground/ aka neutral wire. The neutral wire connects to the bi-metal overload protector built into the relay. That is the bottom center connection terminal on the compressor. The other A/C line in wire is the hot wire and it connects to the Start/ Run connection on the new relay.

I ordered the relay/capacitor part #67005560 for my Amana refrigerator Model # BZ20QL. The replacement part does not look at all like the original parts.

Talk to your supplier, the part could be OK. since in 20 years, the design is changing. Did you get some instructions with the part?

Refrigerator model bx21vl does not cool. I can hear the compressor kick in but it kicks out in 5-10 seconds. Then after about 102 to one minute it kicks in and out again,

Compressor is tripping on overload. You may just need the overload and relay replaced due to a bad compressor relay. The relay is what switches the compressor from it's start winding to it's run winding. If you pull the relay off, shake it to see if you hear lots of rattling inside, that's a sure sign of a bad relay. I would replace both of them.
Here is the overload relay to order.
Here is the start relay to order.

I'm getting a wierd sound coming from my JBL2088HES refrigerator. It is a buzz like an electric shaver followed by a click. It seems to happen in 3 min intervals. Any Idea what it could be?


It sounds like it could be the compressor overload relay or the compressor itself. Lets hope that it is the overload relay, most compressor replacements are very expensive.

The overload/relay isn't very expensive and replacing it will be cheaper than calling a repair tech to tell you if it is the compressor or the overload/relay.

This is a relatively simple repair, if you look at your compressor you will find two wires connected to a small box ( overload/relay )
To remove the overload first you must remove the metal retainer by unhooking it with a pair of needle nose pliers.
Now remove the overload relay by pulling it away from the compressor.

The relay for your refrigerator has a capacitor connected to it, the capacitor and the relay are sold as one piece part # 67005560.

all that you have to do is remove the old relay with the capacitor from the wires by pulling the plug off and connecting the new overload/relay/capacitor to it, reinstall the relay to the compressor and you are done.

Good Luck

Model maytag pbf2255hew freezer and refrigerator not cooling compresor on and off every 3minutes

Pull the refrig out , and remove the rear panel . Is the fan cooling the compressor working ? If not ,replace the fan motor . If it is working , I would say the overload/relay is bad . Pt # 67005560 . This is the piece plugged onto the side of the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires going to it . Easily replaceable and not at all expensive , if you change it yourself .
