Question and Answers

Q:

refrigerator frostbound

A:

Thanks for the inquiry about your refrigerator model 79565202400, I will be glad to assist you. The defrost cycle is controlled by the main PCB board, and is considered accumulative. If you are having a defrost problem and you are sure it is not the result of a door being left ajar, you can test the heater, circuit.Attached is an image with the instructions. I hope this helps. If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services.Ron H.

Thanks for the image. I noticed the defrost control assembly was encased in a block of ice when I removed the grille assembly (I defrosted the whole thing with a hair dryer). It looked like the image showed a partial procedure for testing the assembly, should I just check continuity of the fuse?

Thank you for your question. I understand your concern about the wiring on the new relay. The black wire will connect to the overload and the blue wire to the relay. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Is there a wiring diagram for this? Also, the advice you gave works. Now just want to make sure if I don't do anything with the red wire that nothing will happen.

A:

I'm glad the compressor is now running. I'm attaching the wiring diagram for your refrigerator. The red wire attached to terminal #4 on the original relay is for the starting capacitor. The compressor can start without this being connected but it will have more difficulty and eventually can damage the compressor. It needs to be connected. If the relay you received does not have the terminals shown in the diagram, you may have received the wrong relay. The relay listed for this model is # 6748JJ8002A. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, I will be glad to assist you further.

I'm having the same issue where it is unclear how to connect the relay. I ordered the part number you cite above, but it only has one spade and no place to connect the red wire. Would it work to change out the spade connectors from the old relay?

A:

Keith, I checked with the source on this and there are some models that don't use a capacitor and this could be a relay for one of those type models. To make sure you receive the correct relay, the complete model and serial number will be needed.

A:

I think we're talking on two threads about this. I have the wrong relay I think. I am using the right part number (6748JJ8002A) but it only has one spade. I think I should exchange it and see if I get the right one, does that make good sense to you?
