Long story short. Fridge was clicking the other day and later in the day found that the fridge was hot on both top and bottom. Was able to get the cover off the compressor and disconnected the Relay. Shook it and it rattled like crazy. Replaced the relay this evening and the freezer is working fine. The fridge is lagging behind but is cooling okay. I did notice that the compressor is hotter than all get out. You can only put your hand on it for about 7-10 seconds due to the extreme heat. Is this okay or is there something else that could be failing?

I am trying to figure out what part I need to replace. Neither side of the fridge is cooling so took off the back and I noticed that the white wire that goes into the relay was just hanging,it looks as if it hardened at the terminal and broke off. The red wire that goes to the overlay looks fine.Would the white wire be the reason the compressor doesn't come on? The relay isn't rattling or anything it just seems to be that white wire. Would I need to order the entire condenser fan motor assembly just to get the wire harness? Or would me replacing that not help the compressor? Thanks

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?

Is this the device responsible for the high peak/surge watts when the compressor kicks in? Could you please provide the amperage and voltage for me? Can't find it anywhere online. Thanks!
