How is the connection made in a 3 pins PTC. Which conector goes to n° 1, to n°2 and to n°3. My refrigerator is a side by side and has a capacitor.
In most cases the leads from the capacitor will go on the number 1 terminal and the number 3 right above the 4. The neutral will connect to the 2 terminal and the L1 would connect to the overload. We would need to have the model number to properly determine this by looking at a wiring diagram. Please post your model number with a new question on the parts page. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx
My Whirlpool refrigerator doesn't cool. Purchased relay kit 8201799 to replace the relay and overload. The old relay has 3 male connectors and 3 wires (one red and two blue ones (capacitor?)) go to it. The new relay included in the new kit has only two connectors (positions 2 & 3) and there is no connector in position 1. I am searching internet to find the right relay but no success. Could you please help me find where I can buy one?
The white on wire would go to the relay. The red would go to the overload. There should be 1 blue wire from one side of the cap and the other wire from the cap should be white. The white should be 2 white to 1 connector. The overload goes to the bottom with the red connected to it. The relay will go to the top 2 pins and the double white will go to the left side and the blue to the right side. It is possible for you to eliminate the capacitor if it cannot be connected.
