Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
Replacing a relay and overload protector with a 3 n 1 hard start hardstart came with 5 wires I know the placement of the 3 on the compressor but not sure on the 2 black power wires my relay had a pink and blue wire hooked to it and the overload had a black wire
2 BLACK WIRES IS POWER. ONE GOES TO NEUTRAL, ANOTHER TO THE HOT WIRE(LINE) AND IT DOES NOT MATTER WICH YOU WILL HOOK UP AS LONG AS ONE OF THE BLACK WIRES HAS NEUTRAL, ANOTHER ONE POWER. AND BLACK IS GOING TO COMPRESSOR COMMON PIN, WHITE TO START PIN OF THE COMPRESSOR AND RED TO RUN. I HAD ON THIS REFRIGERATOR START AND RUN CAPACITORS, I ILLUMINATE THOSE - THEY CAN NOT BE IN THE CIRCUIT WITH 3 N 1 HARD START KIT. SOME COMPRESSOR HAVE THOSE CAPACITORS, SOME NOT. I DID NOT UNDERSTAND WHY THIS ONE HAD CAPACITORS IT WAS ONLY 1/3 HORSEPOWER. HOPE THIS HELP YOU.

first take all the relays and capacitor off of compressor , then attach black wire with terminal on "C" terminal post usually top terminal, white wire with terminal goes on "S" terminal post on compressor, red wire with terminal goes on "R" terminal post on compressor. then take the two black wires one connects to white neutral wire and the other connects to the black power wire if tis fridge has a condensor fan then you will also need to connect it two the two black wires also thanks hope this helps

SOURCE: i am replacing the relay
your start device has 2 wires connect to it and the cap slides into it unless you have a relay and over load and in that case one wire goes to each

Try to find the "secret" wiring diagram. Almost all refrigerators have a hidden paper wiring diagram. It is usually tucked into a slot under the refrig, behind the front grill, or otherwise on the inside of the lower rear cardboard fan cover, or sometimes inside the back area near the fan. While you're in there, it's a good practice to clean the coils.

the two power wires go to the incoming power to the compressor, then there should be three other wires that go to the common/start/run terminals on your compressor.

Pull the wire off of the side terminal of the relay. It is connected with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers.
Inspect the connector for corrosion. If it is corroded it should be cleaned or replaced
Reattach the wire to the new compressor relay and press the relay back onto the compressor terminals. Replace the terminal cover box and plug in the refrigerator.
