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

Latest Questions

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!

Refrigerator stopped working. Compressor not coming on as well as the condensor fan. Replaced the overload relay which did rattle when removed and basically was shattered inside and plugged it in. The compressor didn't come on and the fan didn't come on as well. Everything inside works lights, fan etc.... If the fan moter is out would that keep the compressor from coming on as well? Thanks!
