I have a mcbr1020w 10.0 frig. will not come on. just replaced the start device.

What does it mean "does not come on"?
Is it not cooling despite the compressor is running (in this case cooling liquid is lost), or is the compressor not running (nothing to hear, in this case the thermostat is defective) or may be when you open the door, there is no light inside (then the refrigurator has no power).
So check light (no, power is missing)
Check compressor(nothing to hear, thermostat is defective)
Compressor is running (to hear, cooling liquid lost)
The replaced start device you can check by using a bridge (cable with two clamps) between the contacts, but please do that only when you are familiar with electricity, it's not without danger. At best ask an electrician for help.

Maytag window ac blows line cord fuse soon as turned on

Check all your electrical wires and connections. If all okay, you can remove the compressor wires and ohm the compressor motor windings to ground. If you have continuity from any winding-to-ground, your compressor is shorted out and will need to be replaced.

Maytag side-side refrigerator the compressor does not run

the compressor has probably seized and will need to be replaced. just to be sure though, use a voltmeter ot see if the compressor is getting power. (or put your ear against it and see if you can hear a buzzing sound.) if there is no power (or no buzz) it may just be a fuse. if not you can find a replacement here:

Frigerator nor freezer compartment is cooling. There is power

This sounds like it is the compressor relay is bad. It is located on the compressor in a black box. Cheap and easy to repair yourself. IF that does not fix the problem then your compressor is bad. But for a compressor to go bad this soon is really RARE. will have the part that you need. The relay tells the compressor when to turn on and off from the theromstat and if that goes bad the compressor just will not run

Very possible your compressor is bad or the start capacitor is defective. Need someone to do an electrical test on compressor to eliminate the compressor.
Let me know if I can help further, Thanks Sea Breeze

Not running

Check to see what brand of compressor you have. If it is a tecumpseh then it is most likely the problem. If it is an embraco I would try replacing the start device on the compressor. You could try a start device on the tecumpseh as well. If the compressor tries to start then just clicks it is most likely the start device also called relay and overload. The brand name of the compressor will be on it. If the start device doesn't work either the compressor is locked up or the control board is bad which is less likely. Seald system has a 5 yr warranty from date of purchase.
