Question and Answers

Q:

How many Ohm's should be showing across the Capacitor thats connected to the start relay/overload and how do you test the start relay/overload? Thank you for yo

A:

Be sure that you properly discharge the capacitor. The resistance of the capacitor should deflect toward zero and then reverse toward infinite resistance.

The elimination method is normally used to determine which component is bad. You can check the resistance of the motor windings (see image below for wiring diagram). The start windings should measure 3 - 11 ohms of resistance. The run windings should have 1 - 5 ohms of resistance. If the compressor is bad then it will need to be replaced. This refrigerator appears to have a 10 year sealed system parts warranty (you would have to pay for labor). I recommend that you call KitchenAid at 1-800-422-1230 if the compressor is apparently bad (and your refrigerator is less than 10 years old). Here is a link for your owner's manual that has specific information on the sealed system warranty: Owner's Manual .

If the compressor is okay, then your symptoms point to a failed PTC start relay (part 2319792). This part would not be covered by the sealed system warranty. If you want to try and fix this problem yourself, I recommend that you try replacing that part. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

refridgerator compressor kick off after 6 seconds,

A:

From the description you give the problem will be with the compressor or the start relay/overload or capacitor.

This is a problem I would suggest a technician check.

It will be a problem that can most likely be fixed for approximately $200 dollars or it is a problem with the compressor which won't be economical to repair.

The technician would be able to check the compressor and tell you it it is bad or if it needs a part.
