Model: MSD2456GEWCustomers Complaint:
Refrigerator not running. Food in both the freezer and refrigerator section getting warm. Lights in the refrigerator come on when the door is opened.
I pulled the refrigerator out from the wall and removed the rear panel to see if I had power to the start relay on the side of the compressor. I could smell something burnt after removing the rear panel and suspected the start relay. I unplugged the refrigerator so I could remove the start relay to inspect it. After I removed the start relay from the side of the compressor I could see that it was burnt and needed to be replaced.
After checking the compressor with my ohm meter to make sure it was not shorted out I replaced the start relay with part # 12002784
With the new relay installed I plugged the refrigerator in and the compressor started running like it should.
