Frigidaire/Electrolux Refrigerator
« on: July 04, 2010, 10:21:50 AM »
When i plug this Frigidaire FRTC03L3DS refrigerator in there is a click down by the condenser but nothing happens.  New they are worth $225 and I'm wondering if they are fixable or even cost effective to fix.

Your relay might have gone belly up. Remove it from the compressor and examine it for wear. If it looks burnt or rattles and junk falls out that is an indication of a failed relay. Click pictures to enlarge

The relay appears to be in two parts.  One plugs into the side of the condenser and there Is a round black part that connects to that part.  The round black part rattles when you shake it.  and there is some discoloration around the wire connectors going from the black piece to the white piece that connects into the side of the condenser.

Where can i find part numbers?  typed in all the numbers that are visible on the parts to no avail.

Thanks for the reply

I can make the model number work on the sears site, but they don't list crap for parts. Is there any numbers listed on your old part?

I'm going to guess from the model number that this is a 3 cu. ft. unit.

In that case you want to get a hold of an HS410 all n one relay. It has the relay capacitor and overload all in one. It has 3 compressor terminal connectors and all you do is get 120 vac to the bare wires. 2 blue wire nuts are included.

Yes it is a little 3.1 cu ft unit with a separate freezer compartment On the top.  I'm going to see if the local supply shop is open tomorrow and see where that gets me.  i have pictures but they are too big to attach

thanks for all your help and I'll keep you posted.
