Refrigerator would not cool no ac power to the compressor Mark C. • Cynthiana, KY • June 12, 2014 My Repair & Advice The overload relay was the only thing between the the AC power and the compressor. I removed the overload relay and took it apart. It was bad, pieces fell out. The new relay i ordered was same size and shape except for the plug-in jack on the back. The old relay had a receptacle for a two wire plug, the new one had two terminals, one for each wire. I cut off the plug end from the two wires and put new terminals on each wire the plugged them into the new relay. I followed the schematic. It worked! The refrigerator works fine now.
