Question about Kenmore 50522 / 50524 Side by Side Refrigerator
Unplug refrigerator, take off bottom cover in back (cardboard). On side of compressor (big round and black) is an electrical component called a compressor relay. Use a screwdriver to pry the entire block off the side of the compressor. Shake the block. If you hear it sound like a rattle, you need to replace it. Bring it to a refrigerator/appliance supply and get a new one. If yours is the original, the new part will look a little different, but just follow the directions. Trust me I just went through this and the part was $45, not $260 like sears was trying to get.

I'm nel21, I posted my problem Nov. 1 2008, and the solution was exactly what Solution #2 by dwester suggested. I spend only $45 and saved wasting over $250. Thank you for your help!
