Bad compressor start relay and capacitor Byron K. • Pensacola, FL • April 04, 2014 Appliance: Model MAYTAG SIDE BY SIDE My Repair & Advice Tested the start relay and it only had resistance across one set of the three contacts. Common issue. Replaced the relay and the fridge is back to normal. Good thing too because this is my garage fridge for beer and frozen meat! Was this review helpful to you?
