So the overload on my Kenmore 106 series fridge went pop. Did resistance check on the start dev. and compressor, all else good. I go to replace the overload, Klixon 757NFBYY-53 and it apparently can't be found anywhere. I'm no technician, I'm just a cheapskate trying to fix my fridge.
What is an alternative solution? I've read to replace with a 3 in 1, but the opinion is mixed. If so, which model? Or, can I just use another 4TM similar looking overload I assume not since I would guess they are all rated differently, but like I said, what do I know. Thanks!

Sounds like you mad have a bad relay or overload on the compressor. I would also check your condenser fan motor to make sure its running and blowing air on the compressor to cool it. If its not running the compressor may be overheating and shutting off on its overload. If the condenser fan motor is running I would assume that you would need a new relay and overload it will come in a kit. Usually it will make a clicking sound when the compressor is TRYING to start and then shuts off on its overload if the start components are bad.

Although I feel you have checked all the fuses associated with your unit, there are other things that would keep the voltage from the compressor. When your refrigerator starts, power is applied to the start windings of the compressor via a starting relay. Once the compressor is started the relay switches to the run windings. In series of the start relay is an overload device preventing too much current draw. It may be possible that either your relay is broken, or your overload is not closing for some reason. You can buy these starting components for fairly cheap. So to answer your question, no there aren't any more fuses, but there is the overload.
if compressor is hot that means comp- is trying to start but the relay /overload is bad allow comp to cool down unplug from wall and replace with exact type 1/2hp 1/4hp 1/3hp etc make sure all wireing is correct and unplug before starting that model may or may not have a run or start capacitor replace it also..
