I purchased this part when we smelled electrical burn. Replaced the original with this part and the fan did not come on. The Fridge has power and the lights and temp readings were on, however the coil fan did not come on. I then put the old part back on and the fan clicked on within a few seconds. Does this mean that the new part is bad, or could I have installed it wrong? I installed with the black wire to the blue dotted slot and the orange to the slot with the Number "2" next to it. I also plugged the old capacitor into the two slots remaining. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
ANSWER Hello Ire,
Based on the information provided the black does go next to where blue dot on relay is and the orange would go to the terminal where the #2 is. You may try to reinstall the part and see if it works. Check all connections to make sure you do not have a loose wire as well. When you plug in the new part and if the compressor turns on then the part would not be bad.
