Installing new over load relay

Replaceing the overload relay on the compressor new one is a kit P# 4387535

    My 4-year-old LG fridge needs a new "overload relay". I already removed
    the original relay, which definitely had the classic "broken pieces
    sound" when you shake it. Like when a light bulb dies and the filament

    I should have taken a picture of the relay while it
    was still connected to the wires, because now I don't remember which
    wires to connect to each part. I have purchased replacement kit part

    Here is a link to photo of the 2 parts I need to connect RED, BLUE, BLACK wires to.

    you can see in the photo, the brown part has 4 metal connectors (I
    don't know what else to call them), and each is numbered (1, 2, 3, 4) I
    remember that 2 of the colored wires go to 2 of these connectors. And
    the 3rd colored wire goes to the white part in the photo.

    part came in a plastic bag with no instructions. I'm sorry I don't know
    the technical terms. If anyone can help with straightforward
    instructions, I can get my fridge running again!! Thanks!

The line voltage goes to the overload and the neutral(and capacitor lines if it has one) goes to the relay.

Kenmore freezer overload relay went out so i fixed it for about two days . why would it be blowing the overload relay, bad compressor maybe ??

is the relay side sensitive? installed upright? what's starting amps on compressor? verify all connections tight, obviously replace start kit first but possibly compressor going bad.

If you need further help, reach me via phone at

Looking for the wiring diagram for a UR30G fridge

Just because the compressor checked out okay doesn't mean that the overload and relay doesn't need to be replaced it also could mean that the compressor is mechanically defective I would try by installing a URCO810RC 4n1 relay kit. It is all you need no sense in wasting money on new parts if your refrigerator does not have the run capacitor do not install the one that comes with the kit

10 year old maytag MTB2154DR compressor won't start fans runs. How do I replace the start relay? Can I put a 3 in 1 hard start kit? thanks Bob

Hello Bob,
To replace the replay just remove the old relay and install the new on and connect wire(s) to new one exactly as they were connected to old one, it is recommended that the overload also be replaced,but not necessary to see if the compressor will start. I begrudgingly say yes a 3n1 could be used and some will say thats fine but in my experience if a 3n1 is needed the compressor is on its last leg and adding a huge capicator onto something that never had it will send a dying compressor over the wall so quick, and money is wasted on the 3n1 and the end result is a dead compressor.
If you have a meter the relay and overload can be checked first, by checking for continuty on the relay by placing the meter leads into the 2 holes on the compressor where they fit onto the pins of the compressor and check for ZERO ohms resistiance and also zero ohms on the overload by a meter lead in where it fits on pin on compressor and on wire terminal where wire connects. Both relay and over load should have zero ohmsresistiance and continuty if good.

the part number for the OEM relay is 10097204 it should be in stock at your local appliance parts store.

Refrig model # ED2FTGXKQ04 replacing original run/start/overload relay with new part #4387535 not sure what wires to what terminals

there's a start device that goes on your machine that has the overload and relay built in it,part number 2188831 and it's around 25 dollars,comes with instructions where the wires go.go to the sears site and look it up you have to put your model number in and when the diagram comes up go to the one that says unit and you'll see the compressor and you'll see the start device part number 18 on the diagram and you'll see part 2188831.don't pull off any wires until you get the part and then you'll se what wire goes to the overload and connect it to the new part and so on.hope this helps you out.

Refrigerator and freezer are not cooling. can here it running (clicking) but will not get cold. We think it cools and then shuts off. New house just got keys yesterday. it was running on Tuesday?Spoke to a...

Yes replace the start relay and overload. Part number 4387835 or 4387535 or 8201799. If that doesnt help it then you need a need compressor. Most of those factory relays have a capacitor on them. You need to pay attention to how they are wired up.

Freezer thawed. Replaced temperature control, replaced defrost timer, replaced defrost thermostat. Compressor relay is cycling. No cooling still. Help!

Why were those parts changed? Was the compressor cycling on overload at the time?
If so, you should have first replaced the relay/overload combination and the see what happened.
