Question and Answers


My refrigerator won't cool. It seems like the compressor isn't running. How can I be sure it's the run capacitor?


A technician would normally check the voltage going to the compressor first. I posted a wiring diagram in the image below. If the compressor is getting run voltage then you could have a bad start relay or a bad capacitor if your refrigerator has a capacitor installed on that start relay. You should not check that live voltage yourself unless you are completely confident that you can safely measure it. Wear electrical safety gloves and safety goggles if you check that voltage going to the compressor. Unplug the refrigerator as soon as live testing is completed . If that compressor is getting voltage, then I recommend that you unplug the refrigerator and remove that start device from the compressor. Shake that start relay and see if it rattles. If it does, then that start relay is probably bad. You can order a new start relay from this page: Start Relay for Frigidaire Refrigerator PLHS269ZCB2 . If you suspect that the capacitor is bad, you can check it with a meter. It should measure 15 microfarads.

If the start relay and the capacitor are both okay, then you could have a bad compressor. A service technician would need to repair that type of failure. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

If the compressor is not getting voltage, you could have a wiring failure or a bad control board.
