For Whirlpool Overload (Part Number: AP3136048)

Answer or Comment

Follow up question: Still having difficulty seeing how these parts will replace the original overload and capacitor. I do not see how the original capacitor can mount on these parts. My compressor has three prongs in a triangular pattern and I think I see how my replacement parts (AP3136048) mount on those and the harness connector fits smaller spades so I am assuming I need to replace those. But what about the capacitor? Is there a different capacitor that I need? Any help would be appreciated.

Craig K. for Model Number 106.60832101

ANSWER Hi Craig. The overload has a single female round pin that slides onto the "top" of the triangle set of pins. Then this will leave the left over 2- remaining compressor pins side by side , correct? This is where the relay female pins slide onto the compressor. Together these 2 parts will cover all 3-triangular pins. Then Yes, use the smaller spade jumper wire to extend the wire to the relay. The capacitor is part # W10662129. Some models have them while others do not(lesser Quality). It is a run capacitor and in my opinion will keep the compressor running smoother and longer. SO you simply need to use the 2 capacitor wires and connect them to the relay by choosing the terminals #1 and what is across from it and not below it. Thank You.
