There's no instructions on installing the start relay and overload kit 4287835. How does it install in my Roper RS25AEXLQ00 side by side fridge? The burnt out relay had two white wires and a red plugged in the back.
The red wire will connect to the overload which is the white piece with a single terminal. The White wire will connect to the brown relay. If there is a second white wire it will also connect to the relay.
I have a question on wiring up the compressor relay/overloadswitch I received. I have a red wire and a white wire. Can you advise me which terminals to connect these wires to.
Answer Hello Roger,
The wiring should be as such, red wire goes to the white overload and the white wire to the relay. If there are 2 terminals on the relay put the white wire on the right side as you look at it as it is to be installed.
I moved this unit to a new location 4 miles away. When I plugged it in in the garage, it tripped the GFI and won't start. The power cord is not damaged. Why won't the unit run?
Answer Hello John,
It is not recommended to plug unit into a GFCI. Try plugging into an outlet that is not GFCI and see if it operates. If not then you will want to do an amp draw on the red wire that goes to start relay. Amp draw should be no higher than 8.5amps. If you are drawing higher than that then your compressor would be causing the overload.
