Question about Amana ARS2661B Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I removed the overload protector of my refrigerator and do not remember the wiring connection. The model# of the protector is 4tm419pfbyy51. There is a blue wire and a black. the black is from the condensor fan.

    The terminals are not labled. I have attached front and back photos. The protector is manufactured by Klinox. Could you guide me as to which terminal is "N" and which is "L". One way to identify is that one of the terminal is at the edge while the other one is farther from the other side.

    You are right. I have a relay and an overload (two piece assembly) attached to three posts of the compressor. The relay has 3 wires (Black, white and Grey); and the overload has two (Blue and black). Let me provide some details

    1) Amana refrigerator model# SRD26VPSE (the circut diagram is in the back of the Fridge)

    2) As per the circuit diagram (posted below) of this model, the relay has the following connection (I remembered the terminals and I am fine with the relay piece)

    - Black: from the condensor fan

    - White: from the solenoid valve

    - Grey: from the run cap

    3) Overload protector (I do not remember which wire goes to which terminal. Need help on this one. I sent you the photos of the protector)

    - Blue: from Defrost timer

    - Black: from the condensor

Hi,

I`ll try and keep this simple as possible, as it should be under these circumstances.

**unplug the unit before attempting any service**

I looked up your model number based on the info at the header on your post which states ``ARS2661B`` and although that appears to only be a partial model number the schematic identifies those wires as blue & white. In the case where there is a blue & white wires as opposed to blue and black usually the blue is the same as white, hence it identifies neutral or ``N`` and the black remains ``L1`` or line. You may try this either way with no consequence, one way will work one won`t, simple.

So...
Having said that, the blue wire will go to the terminal on the protector with the ``N`` and the black wire will go to the terminal identified with the ``L``.

That should do it, if you`re only concerned about those 2 wires.

Hope that helps, let me know either way please.

Good luck.

    Hello,



    OK, I think I know what happened here. I misunderstood. I assumed you meant the complete overload/relay assembly is what you had taken off. There should be another piece which attach`s to the compressor along with the overload you pictured in your last post. If you combine the two pieces they mount on the 3 posts on the comp. the black wire will go to the protector terminal still visible once the 2 pieces are together and the blue should attach to the other piece (relay) and not the protector at all.



    I hope that makes sense, I think you must have removed the entire relay/overload assembly and pulled one of the wires (blue) from the relay and only one (black) from the protector. That`s what I suspect anyway.



    Let me know if that works for you. Good luck.

    Hi,

    OK. That explains alot, the diagram I was going on was completely different. Thank you for providing the pictures that's awesome. Knowing now that both of these wires are simply going to the "common" post of the compressor it won't matter which terminal the blue & black are placed on actually. They are like 2 wires being joined together going to the same source or suppling to the same load. Sorry for all the confusion, I made the mistake of assuming the model number in the header of the post was YOUR model...it wasn't.

    That should get you fixed up, hope it helps but let me know. Good luck.

The start relay on Kenmore model 596.58642890 replacement question


The original relay switch has 3 terminal contacts on the compressor side. On the wiring side it has 4 contacts... 2 are start capacitor connections and two at the bottom of the relay are the A/C 110-125 volt line in connections. The replacement part you bought is a genericreplacement for the ref. The correct substitute part is W10189190 . The two wires for the original relay in the top horizonal position evenly spaced apart... ignore the 2 wires. They are wires to the old start capacitor mounted somewhere near the compressor. The other two wires are important to configure them properly. One may be blue and the other red. Here is a cheap way to know which is the right configuration... Use a volt ohmmeter and check the continuity from the refrigerator ground terminal on the A/C line cord or chassis to both A/C line in wire connections to the relay. If the ohms are zero or very near to zero then that is the ground/ aka neutral wire. The neutral wire connects to the bi-metal overload protector built into the relay. That is the bottom center connection terminal on the compressor. The other A/C line in wire is the hot wire and it connects to the Start/ Run connection on the new relay. http://www.appliancezone.com/ShowProduct.aspx?ID=28271

I heard a loud crackling, popping noise coming from the rear of my refrigerator, and smelled plastic burning. I unplugged it and removed the cover, once I could see inside, I plugged it in again and...


The compressor has an internal ground which is why that happened. You should replace the whole machine in my opinion, because with that kind of problem, I can guarentee that not only is the compressor gone, but the control board in the ref which is wired directly to the compressor has been damaged as well. I've seen this a few times and know its not worth the nmoney to put into the machine.

Refrigerator not cold. The motor is blowing but


unplug the refrigerator. get to the compressor remove the cover on the compressor, remove the brown or white relay. the compressor also has an overload, but that maybe on the top or connected to the relay. remove the wires, remember where they go, shake the relay, if it rattles it's bad. you will need to get a solid state relay to replace the bad one..Good luck

Refridge. compartment warm


Not fridge death. If nothing is running it is a good sign that it is repairable. Unplug it. Where the temperature is located, remove it if you can. There will be two wires connected to it. Connect these two wires together and then plug in the refrigerator. It should run and cool. If this makes it run and cool your problem is the thermostat. Replace it.

If it does not run from above, the compressor may have a burnt overload protector or wire off.
