For Whirlpool Compressor Start Device Kit (Part Number: AP3873993)

Answer or Comment

View all Questions

I'm replacing the start device on the compressor for my Whirlpool refrigerator and have the correct part, however, the instructions refer to a blue wire which isn't present in my refrigerator. The instructions show to connect the white wire to the jumper provided in the kit then connect that to the PTC then connect red wire to the overload. It then says to connect the blue wire from "the capacitor or use terminal cover from kit" and connect to other prong in the PTC.

Carmen for Model Number ED25RFXFW02

ANSWER Hello Carmen, The red wire goes to the overload, (small white part that attaches to the compressor first),and the white wire goes to terminal 3on the ptc relay. The blue wire is referring to the instance where a capacitor is used.
