All the new compressors are smaller horse power. Using a rco410 will only burn out the windings. If you have to, use a rco810 or urco810. It will buy them some time but won't burn out the windings.

I don't know anything about that make and model off hand, but if it has a condenser fan were you cleaned it make sure it's still turning, maybe something got knocked loose and got caught in the fan keeping it from turning. I have seen it happen a few times on refrigerators after the customer cleaned them.

I was afraid you would say that, looks like a $100 cost for me. Thanks a lot for the feedback though!

Does anyone know how to get access to the control board on a kitchenaid KDRP463LSS08 duel fuel range?
I need to check and or change the power transformer or board. If you have a service manual that would be great also.

That's what I do, and if it goes leave it alone. 90% success rate that they keep going.

Hey, JDM, you nailed it.
It turned out to be a loose pulley wheel rubbing on the pulley cover. The belt was also off the pulley a little bit, and the pulley wheel wore down the cover somewhat. I was able to tighten the pulley nut almost two full turns, then made sure the belt was OK. I repaired the cover by putting a small wood brace glued to the outside of the pulley cover so the torn part would not rub against the cover.
I also did a spin speed calibration via diagnostics, and now even the loud noise I hear during the spin cycle (probably due to bearings in the motor gear box) is somewhat lower that it was in the past.
Of course, to play it safe, I also ordered the hub kit as suggested by dab, just in case, before tackling the job. Maybe I'll hang onto it since it didn't cost too much.
Thanks again to both of you.
