Part Number: AP3885081 Made by WHIRLPOOL I am having trouble understanding how this part will attach to the compresser. My compressor has three male parts in a triangular pattern. I do not see three female holes on this replacement part to attach to the compressor. The connecton to the electrical looks similar to the part I took off so no problem there.

Whirlpool SidebySide Model ED5PHEXM00. The starter relay is fried, found replacement part No AP3885081, but want to know if these burn up on their own or if there is usually another cause i.e. Compressor? Also is there a way to test if the capacitor which plugs into the relay is ok. At $100 I didn't want to just start replacing parts.

I bought the start relay as cross reference with my Kenmore refrigerator said I should. I replaced it in 5 minutes and started the refrigerator back up. The problem remains the same. When I crossed referenced and checked with the part in my fridge, the part shows as a Whirlpool part and not a Kenmore. My questions: 1. The problem was that it would not stay on or would fail to restart and all ice and everything else would melt. I ran it on highest and it would stay cool for a while but once it failed to restart problem was the same. Some times even pushing back and forth on the control dies not start it up. 2. What else I should check since this relay did not fix the problem? Is there another faulty part that usually goes wrong.

After reading your site I decided that my refrigerator was not cooling due to not being able to start compressor. There was a clicking noise coming from the relay start device. I bought a "start relay" which does not look like the start device at all. Are these 2 different things? Thanks

I have a gladiator garage refrigerator that was serviced this spring for a failed start relay. The tech installed relay 2188829, subsequently I now have a compressor failure. The unit trips breaker and the compressor is shorted to ground. Could the incorrect relay be the cause of the failure? The correct part number is 2302351. What is the difference between the 2 relays and how could that have been the cause? Hoping to learn something about the relay differences before contacting the service company. Thanks for an unbiased evaluation. Please send reply to tjlmclever@comcast.net Thanks

The fridge was running warm and I could hear a click from the compressor. Bought and installed new start relay 8201786. Refrigerator still running warm. Start relay does not have a blue wire, but a capacitor that plugs directly into the relay. Do I also need to buy a new capacitor or could the compressor be shot? I also noticed that the new start relay rattled a bit when I shook it. Could I have gotten a bad relay? Thanks.

My Compressor will not start. I can visibly verify that the PTC was burned and is not working. Do you have the replacement for that part and if so is it combined with the overload protector in the same plastic housing?

I purchased part WPL 8201786, Start relay for my fridge which has an Embraco EGS 100HLC compressor. The instruction sheet for the part says it for EGY80 and EGY90 type compressors only. I was told that it would work with my compressor. I replaced the old compressor and plugged the fridge back in. It ran about 10 minutes then stopped. I unplugged it and waited a few minutes. I have plugged it in since then and it starts for 10 seconds, then stops. Please let me know if I need to replace this relay with another one made for a bigger compressor. Thank you.
