Product Description

NOTE: This part has been replaced by the manufacturer. It may look different from the original but will still function the same. This part is both the start relay and the overload. The start relay boosts the compressor, and then shuts off as soon as the motor gets up to speed and the overload provides extra protection against excessive temperatures.

    Freezer not defrosting correctly
    We were hearing a clicking noise coming from our refrigerator/freezer combo. The freezer wasn’t defrosting correctly. I pulled the unit out, unplugged the refrigerator, pulled off the flimsy cardboard backing. I pulled off the old unit (compressor start relay/capacitor) unplugged it from the wiring harness, hooked up the new components to the unit and plugged it into to the compressor (three pins, only one way to put it on correctly) and put the cover back on. I plugged the unit back in and pushed it back into place and it has been working like a champ for a couple of weeks now

    Both comparments very warm but fan working and lights on
    Bought Capacitor, but I had to purchase Combo Start Up Kit that Cap goes into. The site said that 78% of the time my problem of both compartments being warm were resolved/repair by replacing Capacitor, but when the item was replaced it did not resolve and my son looked further and found that it would then be the Combination
    Start Up Kit (Part# PS11740412), which starts the compressor.
    Thanks ! https://youtube/Mrdal-7h2wU is the video used to install both parts. I was able to use my old Capacitor and I returned the new one that I purchased first for full refund minus shipping.

    Freezer stopped cooling. Got the "Click and Whirr."
    I'm not a repairman, but fairly handy, so I looked around on the net, and saw the problem was probably the capacitor or the combo start device. Found a video on this site that was very clear. I ordered both parts just to be safe. Got 'em within a week and did the installation as described on the video(s). Super easy. She fired right up and is cooling as well as before! $95 for the parts and shipping saved a refrigerator freezer no longer made! Thank you!

    FREEZER/FRIDGE WOULD NOT COOL COULD HEAR COMPRESSOR WOULD RUN FOR ABOUT 10 SECONDS THE STOP ABOUT A MINUTE LATER WOULD COME ON THEN GO OFF
    `Need to unplug the appliance. Removed the screws that held the back lower cardboard cover on. After locating the compressor I took off the retaining spring that held the combination start device with capacitor onto the compressor. Then I unplugged a two wire clip, removed the capacitor and combination start device. T then placed the capacitor on the new part and plugged in the two wire clip. then I plugged the new part onto the compressor. The retaining spring could not be put back because the new part was not the same thickness as the old. Did not matter worse perfect now. It was a very easy repair.

    Compressor would not stay running. Sounded like it was trying to start, then would go off in a few seconds
    I did the repair exactly like the video showed. The instructions were step by step and it was super easy to do. Even with overnight shipping, we only spent $108 to fix the refrigerator. We figured we would spend at least that much just to have someone come and look at it and it sure beats buying a new $1400 refrigerator! I would recommend this site to everyone!!
