Compressor problem, installing the Supco 3-in-1 Relay
My compressor quit, and unfortunately the serviceman who worked on it was not quite "up to speed." He installed the Supco RC0810, which worked for only a few hours. I have bought the RC0410 as recommended on this site, but can't be sure of the connections, as the old relay and wiring is gone. Can somebody who has done it tell me which of the 3 wires from the 3-in-1 (red, white, black) go to which terminals on the compressor (top, lower right, lower left)? The 3-in-1 also has wires for a run capacitor, yet none is apparent on my Skybox. Does it use a run capacitor? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Compressor problem, installing the Supco 3-in-1 Relay
Hi, If the 3 posts are top center and bottom right left, the black wire goes top the top center post. The red wire will go to the bottom right and the white goes to bottom left.
If the posts are bottom center and top right left, the black goes on bottom center and the red goes top left. The white goes top right.
If you do not see a capacitor, disregaurd the wires in the 3-1
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Sounds to me like the A/C clutch is no good and out of adjustment.You should goto your nerrest junkyard and get a used assembly take the clutch off then you learn how it comes off and install it on yours the save the pump for later use if needed. The clutch should only have a .010 air gap after install between th inner elctro magnet and the clutch plate it's self.
We purchased this same Kenmore chest freezer model 19502/19702 in 2010. In less than 2 years the compressor quit. If you do a search on this model you will see dozens of complaints. Don't waste your time or money on this freezer.
Possible bad thermostat. Bypass the thermostat wire to run the compressor. If the compressor start, replace the thermostat.
On the other hand if the compressor is running, and there is no cooling; there is a leak and all the refrigerant probably escaped. If it is the case, you need to call serviceman and have him evaluate the wine cooler for possible repairs.
P.S. The serviceman may charge a fee for evaluating or estimating the cost of repairs.
The click sound is the overload on the compressor kicking out the compressor because of high amperage draw........(check with a amp clamp if you have one) Also if you do not have a stationary condensor coil hanging on the back there should be a fan running if the coils are on the bottom and clear for air flow.
There are some things you can do depending on the age of the unit....... If it is a newer unit still under manufacturer warranty it may be best to call a authorized servicer to fix unit..
If it is past warranty you could try a supco 3n1 hardstart either 410 or 810. Fairly simple to install with a diagram(have it unplugged) It is a universal part for the relay overload and maybe a capacitor on your unit.......If the compressor is bad and not one of the electrical parts on the compressor it will not repair it and you will be out the cost of the part. If it does fix it your done...... If you wire it wrong you are also done...... Good luck.......
also wait a few days to buy groceries (as sometimes a compressor will fail with a correctly installed supco hardstart) that unit is working ok again
The problem is the compressor isnt starting. The relay is probably ok. It should have 5yr warranty on the compressor. However if you purchase a Supco RC0810 start assist relay available at all appliance parts stores, it will start the compressor, however this is only a temp fix. But it should last till sears can put a new compressor in.
