Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Hi ther expert, I have a westinghouse fridge frezzer side by side fairly old 15odd, the model no. RS 652K-XWZ s/n 420 52089 is on the label. The problem is with a junction looking box with a clip holding the cover on to the side of the compressor unit where the live and neutral are connected, this seems to have got water in it on a accidental defrost and is now burning up accross the round disc between 2 contacts. the whole unit pulls off the side of the compressor with 3 contact pins, can you please identify this part with a number and tell me if it is available and where in Auckland NZ. Thank you. Regards Mike

This sounds like the relay has gone on the compressor. Call your local appliance parts store
(no model no. needed) and ask for a hard start kit. Instructions are on kit.
I use ERP 410 powerstart relay capacitor and over load. See it has everything and is much better than the original.
Remove the back cover, pull the original relay off the compressor pins, cut the two wires and install according to instructions. Very easy job.

There is a heating coil in those for defrosting purposes. You need to check and see if there is a defrost timer and see if it is stuck. Since you did not post the make and model number, that is as far as I can advise

Issue with Kenmore Refrigerator/Freezer


ok,1st check on fridge side toward upper back of the top and feel for air coming thru, and there is another one down possibly behind crisper .I had this same deal. Had to do total defrost,, put food in cooler,, theres two blower fans in these types of fridges,,one in the bottom back,, and one in the back of the frezzer,, I used an old hair dryer and let it blow warm to top interior of frezzer,, careful not to let any cords hang/drop in any water!!,ok once done dry out as much water as possible, turn fridge on set both controls to 4,when fridge kicks on do the feel test,, you may need to close the frezzer door, air should be felt near top inside of fridge,if so than shut fridge side and feel inside frezzer near bottom and air should be felt,, side-by-side need to circulate air from frezzer to fridge, then back to frezzer

My Kenmore refrigerator is not cooling properly. Freezer portion works fine but not refrigerator. Came on suddenly.


I had the same problem. The frezzer worked but the fridge was not getting cold. What I have learned is that the frezzer make the fridge cold, so if the frezzer is working then something is blocking the cold air to get into the fridge. Most likely ice. The air come in at the bottom of the inside of the fridge next to the frezzer. Pull everything out of the frezzer, then unscrew the plannel that runs along the back and you see if there is ice. If so turn frezzer off and dry out the frezzer. I used hot water.

HI. I HAVE PURCHASED A SECOND HAND WESTINGHOUSE FRIDGE FREEZER. I WAS TOLD IT WAS MADE IN 1986. THE MODEL NO IS RS 615EA. CAN I FIND OR DOWNLOAD A MANUAL FOR THIS MODEL.


Hi, I can send you the service manual if you give me your email address. Unfortunately, I don't think you'll find the user manual for this model anywhere, unless someone has an old one lying around. The service manual has technical information and exploded views of fridge parts, wiring diagrams etc, and may be of some use. The service manual also includes other models, so you need to find your model in the service manual- it's about 57 pages long. Let me know if you want the service manual.

Not cold


Check the thermostat located on the top of the freezers in the back of the freezer. This is a pretty common problem that 90% of the time comes down to a thermoostat being bad. REplacement of the part is fairly easy and fairly cheap to do yourself
