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.

Asd2522wrb04 amana side by side refrigerator. clicks like it is coming on. then goes off. nothing freezes or cold. Why?

I believe what is happening here is a defective start relay and overload. Right now I would pull refrigerator away from the wall and unplug. Next remove the cover over the compressor feel top of the compressor and if it is not possible to keep your hand there from heat tells me the compressor is trying to start. Keep unplugged until replacing the Start Relay Kit below.Most times the compressor that begins to do these symptoms can be fixed by replacing the=>

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.

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.
