I recently bought this Overload relay kit. I have two black wires, an orange wire, and blue from the fridge. The new kit does not have enough terminals for all the old wires. Where do all the wires go?
Answer Hello Adam,
The blue wire goes to the overload, the white contraption with one terminal. The orange wire goes to terminal #2 on the start relay. The two black wires are from the capacitor and will hook to terminals 2 and 3. They are not polarized so you cannot get them crossed. One will hook to the same side as the orange wire (terminal #2) and the other wire will hook to the terminal on the opposite side of the relay, (terminal #3). If the new relay doesn't have two terminals on the same side of the relay, you will have to connect these two (one orange and one black)together and hook them both to terminal #2 on the relay.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
Part # AP4009662 - I just bought this part and was delivered 11/21/11. Can you please tell me how to install this as it does not look
like the original part but is a substitution for the original part. Similarly, goods was received without the the jumper wire and instruction as stated in your ads and which should be included in the package.
Answer Hi Johnny. The blue wire goes to the overload which slides on the single pin on the compressor. Not the 2 that are side by side, it is (formed in a triangle) exactly where the original blue wire /overload connection was. Then use the orange wire to hook to the # 2 terminal on the relay. The capacitor connects at pin # 2 and # 3 of the relay. The jumper was an optional part if one of the orange wire did not fit directly on the relay, on some a narrow female spade terminal was used on the orange wire so the jumper hooked on the small terminal and transferred to a regular 1/4" terminal at the relay end. You can crimp a 1/4 " female spade terminal and hook to the relay at # 2 on the relay. The orange wire is the neutral feed from the adaptive defrost control board. Thank You.
