This Whirlpool Refrig is 7 years old.I am somewhat familar with the workings of a refrigerator. Every 6 months I clean the condenser and compressor area. The unit is clean now. The refrig is coolong fine. Around 38 degrees in refrig and aout 10 degrees in the freezer. The frig is not overloaded with food items. Lately when the compressor and fans activate, all will run for around 15 to 20 minutes the shut off..Around 2 minutes later the compressor and fans will acivate again for about 1 minute the shut off Again after about a minute the compressor and fans will activate for about a minute the shut off. This will happen for about 6 to 7 times. Then the unit will be off for a while( about 20 to 30 minutes. Then the compressor and fans will activate and run for about 15 to 20 minutes and the short cycles will start again. On occasion I have heard a thump/clunk from the compressor. The compressor doesn't feel that hot. I can hold my hand on it. The compressor cooling fan is working fine. Any ideas on what can be the problem? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Dennis

Hello, Does the part labeled "overload" also contain the starter relay? The compressor on my model isn't even trying to start and I believe it might be a bad relay but I can't seem to find any parts on here with that description. Thanks, Dan

How do I remove the Overload for the compressor. I can see it on the compressor but when you try to move it, it does nothing. Want to see if something inside might be broken but cant get it off to rattle it and see if it is broken. Would like to order one but not sure if it is bad or not.

My refrigerator will stop working every couple of days. If I unplug it and wait a few minutes and plug it back in it will start back up. Does this sound like a problem with the overload?

How can I check the overload part on my refrigerator? So that I can determine if it's good or bad before ordering a replacement.

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.

I ordered and received the overload part AP3136048 (4387938). The part received looks nothing like the existing part or the photo on your website. I called and was advised that this is the correct part but the replacement part changed. How do I install this replacement part? My existing part is one piece, not a cover with loose pieces inside and the capacitor mounts directly on it. Again, if this is the correct part, how do I install it? Thanks.

My fridge has separate relay (p/n 2176740) and overload (p/n 2183452), both parts now discontinued. Each has one wire going to it. When replacing with relay+overload unit 4387938, how do connect the red and white wires? There is no L and N markings on my old parts. Thanks!
