Default bad thermal overload?
Model Number: RT14F3WLCD   Brand: Gibson   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


(I'm not sure of the age of this refrigerator - we got it used 5 - 10 years ago).

(Refrigerator serial number: 1048712339)

The frig was cycling on and off every few minutes and the freezer wasn't freezing food. When I removed the thermal overload it stopped cycling on and off but now it doesn't seem to be able to turn off by itself.

I tested the relay with an ohm meter between terminals 1 & "L" and 2 & "L". I get 0 ohms on one that changes to infinite when turned upside down and 0 on the other both right side up and upside down. When I shake the relay it rattles, but shouldn't it do that since it is supposed to move when you turn it upside down?

I was thinking of replacing the overload (and the relay also).

Should the thermostat turn the compressor off when it reaches the right temp even though there's no overload?

Thanks for your help.
