You need at least two terminals on your relay to hook up a capacitor, one wire of the capacitor goes on one terminal of the relay and the other capacitor wire would get spliced in with the neutral line that plugs into the relay

Part 2 when it tries to start i hear a click coming from the overload-start capacitor side of compressor. fan is working.

check the capacitor overload protector and starting relay if they are all good, if one of them is found not functioning replace it. with new accessory installed , plug in the unit. if still you hear a click and compressor don't start , replace it . before you start anything on the unit be sure you know what you're doing. if in doubt call the experts.thanks,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.

I have had my Magic Chef MCBR360S in my garage for about 2 years. Worked fine. Now it just stopped working. Any suggesstions?

Unplug and try connecting the thermostat wires together,if it comes on then replace the thermostat. If while unplugged remove the start relay and overload on the compressor. Shake around to see if anything shakes around inside re install and give that a try, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool start device

k here we go, thinkkn we can get this to work for you.

the difference is going to be the white overloads in the bag9s). depending on size of compressor they will change, as far a s the relay thinkin ther is onl one in that bag'box/ (brown with 3 possible connections..
if this is the cas e ill asume that the old relay/overload was a onepiece white plastic with smaller connectors.. .you will need to cut off and resplice a new spade connector on the wires to fiut the new piece..
the extras are just that extras, its easier for them to stock and store one part number for a multitude of repairs( youll need only one)

MY magic chef CTB1922 IS NOT COOLING

Sounds like your compressor overload tripping. Compressor may be stuck from sitting. Start relay may be stuck from sitting. Try a new start relay after making sure all your wires and connections are good. Sometimes a wrap with a deadblow hammer on the side of the compressor can get it going. Don't pound on it just a light wrap. My guess is the relay or overload first. Unplug before fooling with any wiring!
