My freezer/refrigerator will run normally, but when the cooling kicks on it just kicks right back off. It blows cool air, but not cold air. Just seems like as soon as whatever it is kicks on to make it cool , it just kicks right back off. but still runs normally.
You will want to make sure that the condensor fan motor is running. If not then check for 120 vac at the fan motor and if there is power but no motor operation then replace condenser fan motor. If the fan is ok, remove the start relay from the compressor and shake it. if it rattles then the relay is bad and will need to be replaced.
my relay part is 4SP1088 29 V01R, the relay that is see doesn't look the same will it work?
Answer Werner, Based on the model number you supplied [PTB1954GRW] you are about to order the incorrect part. Your refrigerator requires 12002782 (mpn 12002782) Overload/Relay KIT. You may find it easier to install this part, it also comes with instructions
I have a Crosley refrigertator modeL #CT19G6B. I have a replacement start device part #2319794. The new relay is different from the original and I need information on how to wire the new part.
Answer Hello Buffytech,
From my research, it appears that you have the wrong start device for your unit. The only way this wouldn't be true is if the compressor has been changed, in which case, I would need the part number of the replacement compressor to research it for a wiring configuration. The start device that shows for the model number you listed is 12002782, and consists of an individual overload and start relay.
