For Whirlpool Start Relay (Part Number: AP3181920)

I have a Whirlpool (Model W4TXNWFWQ00) Refrigerator that will not cool. My mother in law previously had it and it was working fine until she got a new refrigerator a week ago. She gave the refrigerator to us and when we got it installed at the house, it doesn't sound like the compressor is turning on. When I plug it up, the light turns on inside the refrigerator and I can feel air blowing in the freezer, but it's not cold. I let it run for several hours and nothing got cold. I believe, from reading on here that the Start Relay (2258450) is the culprit. If so, do you any instructions on here for replacing this part? Thanks

Refrigerator (Kenmore 10673832301) light, compressor fan, on/off switch all functioning, no clicking noise when it is plugged back in. No cooling at all in fridge or freezer. From looking at the questions/answers, this Start Relay looks like the most likely point of failure. Agree or is there another likely culprit?

Hi, I was wondering if you had any basic diagrams or pictures in addition to the parts diagram on the ordering page. I have the part in front of me, along with the old assembly, and there doesn't look to be any way this can be the right fit, though I've cross checked the same part number on the bag as well as the refrigerator's service manual. Thanks!

I will be ordering this (or a similar) relay from you once I get the proper part number off my defective one. Since it appears that to start the compressor it uses 120v on the "S" terminal then switches to a lower(?) voltage. Can I just wire directly from the overload to the "S" terminal and run the fridge for a few hours a day to keep things cold until the part comes in? Thanx - Paul
