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 and my son looked further and found that it would then be the Combination Start Up Kit (Part# PS11740412), which starts the compressor. Thanks to this site the video used to install both parts. I was able to use the old Capacitor and I am returning the new one first purchased.

Compressor wouldn't start (would try and start for 10 seconds, then pause for a 1.5 minutes, then try again)

According to everything I read, if the compressor wouldn't start then it's either a bad compressor ($365 for new compressor + $400 labor + $79 trip charge for technician to fix it) or it was a bad capacitor and/or start-dev (relay +overload circuit). For about $80 for the capacitor and start-dev I was willing to try these parts out and just skip having a technician come out. (If this didn't work, I would be going to buy a new refrigerator. I will say that this repair tactic wouldn't have been very doable if we didn't have a extra fridge in the garage so that could wait for the parts to be delivered. The repair was successful and it took about 15 minutes to complete the repair. Steps: 1) Pulled the fridge away from the wall and unplugged it. 2) Used my nut driver to remove the access panel at the bottom rear of the fridge. 3) The 'start-dev is pushed onto 3 pins on the side of the compressor. The capacitor is pushed onto 2 pins on the outside of the start-dev. Both can be removed together from the side of the compressor.4) Once removed, then disconnect the electrical 'molex' connector from the start-dev. Lift the tab on the side, and wiggle it off. 5) reverse these instruction to install the new parts. 6) After plugging in the fridge, the compressor should now come on and stay on while it cools your food down.

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!

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!!

Freezer thawed

Kenmore redesigned my model. I removed the compressor starter module but had to replace with three different components and a cover. I extended the length of 2 wires by splicing to enable to fit under the new cover. Instructions advised taking this repair to an appliance tech. It took several hours for me to repair and it is fixed. Am returning the capacitor which I bought "just in case".

Refrigerator would not freeze or cool

Discovered that I had a bad overload relay and fridge would not cool. Verified that I did have power to the compressor. After removing the assembly from the compressor. I found a rattle sound in the relay and disassembled the part , finding my deduction was correct. I went on line and found a compressor start kit and capicitor which was correct for my fridge. These parts came to $75.00 delivered. I thought that this is cheaper than a new compressor of $600.00 plus installation or a new fridge. So I ordered the kit and installed it in under 30 minutes. My fridge is up and running saving me a lot of money for costly repairs or a new fridge. Worked out fantastic allowing me to used the saved money elsewhere . Great site will continue to use this site in future repairs. Thanks
