I do not have a skybox problem ... I was looking at Starter relay information and skybox guy posted starter relay info ... I decided to pay for help ... Frigidaire Gallery side by side DFRS26ZSHB2 ... no...

If it's not cooling and the internal lights and fan are working, then the problem is either the start relay or the overload relay. I checked the model number you posted and I didn't get any information for the number. Please double check the number that is posted inside the unit. In the mean time, take a look at this relay kit. It is a combination start relay, run capacitor and overload relay all in one. Usually the start relay will run you around $25.00 alone so this is what I use to repair this type of problem at a fraction of the cost. Again, please check that model number again and I will get you the pricing for the individual parts. It is best to replace all the relays if one goes out.Here is a link to the ERP410 relay kit.

Coolin fans wont run without runnin a jumper directly to battery

Could be the cooling fan relay, the fuse, the sensor which triggers the cooling fan relay, or the wiring connections which join it all together. Is there power coming to the relay? Is there ground? Will the cooling fan operate if you trigger the relay? Try to break the circuit down in sections, and test a section at a time. If, for example, the fan operates when you trigger the relay, you will need to find out why the sensor is not triggering the relay. Maybe a bad wire? Or a bad sensor? Let us know what you find out. Good luck!

Can you switch your horn relay switch with you cooling fan relay switch because i think my cooling fan relay is burnt out, i can go without a horn until i buy a new relay for the fan

If it looks the same, it is. Go ahead and switch them, but try the horn after you do it. If the horn still works, the relay is not your problem.

When i try to start my 03' sportster, it keeps

This sounds like a circuit breaker tripping. If you have a short somewhere, the circuit breaker will break with an audible click. When it cools off in a few seconds, it will reset. If the short circuit is still present, it will immediately trip again making the same clicking noise. You need to find out which breaker it is and trace the short. I don't think the starter relay is under the tank but if this is it, the relay is making a tick but the engine is not starting, you need a new relay.

Good Luck

Hello, I just changed the starter on a 91 fatboy. everything worked as it should for couple of days. Today when I switched on the ignition, the starter engaged without pushing the start switch. It did...

I think you are on the right path. Check the relay it is about a $10 fix. Your relay if faulty could have been a problem all along. Did you replace the starter after bench testing the old one?
In order for the starter to "turn over" by itself the circuit had to be closed somehow, either through a manual process or something like a relay. Hope this helps.

The starter overload has melted!!!!! the fridge ran for 2 hours not cooling then stopped has not started since this fridge was turned off for 18 months compressor motor could survive this???

The start relay device is known to break down and can do so without damaging the compressor. About all you can do is replace the two parts and test it. Be sure to clean the compressor terminals for good contact when replacing the parts.

92 integra randomly won't start, won't even turn over

I had the same problem in my 92 Integra. I bought a new relay from the dealership for like $60.00. What happens is if the car gets too hot, like on a long drive it will lock out the starter. This fixed the problem for me. Let me know if you need the part number and i will dig it out, i still have my old relay.

My Kenmore side by side stopped cooling

I think your compressor has given up the ghost. Yes it is possible that it could be a relay problem but not likely.

Fan runs constantly on cool mode

Simple Question: Did you check to see if the fan switch on the
t-stat is in ON or AUTO? If ON the fan runs nonstop. If in auto the fan cycles with the outdoor unit.
next does the fan shut off if you turn the t-stat to off?
A stuck relay should keep the fan running all the time.
Sometimes if the relay is stuck you can whack the side of the Air Handler and the connection will break.
Sometimes instead of a relay there is a stack switch.
It's a little black stack of 3 disks this is a bi-metal switch.
they do get stuck more often than relays.
The fan relay may be on a electronic board. I don't know for sure without seeing your unit.
Good Luck Phil
