Question about Kenmore 50522 / 50524 Side by Side Refrigerator
When plugged in, the lights come on when the doors are opened and the fan runs but the refridgerator will not cool. The compressor does not come on. I hear a click under the refridgerator about every 30 seconds or so.
It has a bad relay on the compressor. Looks like your model is a 50552 Kenmore. If so the part # you need is a 8201799 (start device) cost is $45.96 and you can get it at http://www3.sears.com/ or any local appliance parts house. It is # 16 on this diagram http://www3.sears.com/imaging/ImagePageJava.shtml?productTypeID=0165000&brandID=0582&modelDesc=SIDE-BY-SIDE%20REFRIGERATOR&modelNumber=10650552000&documentID=P0070128&documentTypeID=PLDM&documentClassCode=PM&titleType=UNIT&titleID=00011&

Its likely that the main transfer and power is blown out, like my fridge.
