Your part number will not work. From the Sears site I found what I think is a direct replacement part
216008900 OR AP2112343 at a very low price of $2.85 seems like a cover price rather than the relay. If this part is identical, just stick it in and wire per the old relay. Best to put a 1000joule surge protector on the wall outlet, available at Wall Mart

You also can take the conponents off, and put a hard start kit on. If the conponents have burn't out again, your compressor could have a start issue, and need an extra kick. The hard start kit part # is RCO410. The instructions are on the bag of the part. Real Simple!!! Tom ********************************************

This is not a R12 refrigerator. The new compressors using the R12 replacement R134A are high efficient ones that will burn out using a 3 n 1 hard start device, definitely NOT recommended.

Check my article "replacing compressor start devices". I will look for the other report. Basically, the new efficient compressors are designed for high efficiency and use a sharp permeability iron stator to increase efficiency. This stator reactance under transient conditions will essentially go to zero, current only limited by the copper resistance.

I totally understand what you are saying!! I agree with you totally!!!! But, and you knew there would be!! LOL!!!! Let me explain my reasoning!! I have experienced the following conditions on numerous occasions. Where I have replaced the overload, relay, and start cap, only for them to go out again in a 4 to 6 month period. Voltage checks were fine, and most of my customers are recommended by me, to put surge protectors on the majority of there appliances, or to have installed a surge protector on the breaker panel. So everything can be protected. Of Course, nothing, can stop a direct lightening strike. We live in Tornado Alley in SW MIssouri. So basicallly, I am saying here that outside conditions are favorable. So now that you have the picture, here is my question to you, if a compressor is continually blowing relays, what do you do? I have customers who don't want to see me every 4 to 6 months, to take their money. By the way, Merry Christmas, to you and your family!!!!! Tom www.********************************************

You replace the unreliable start device with the GE one, WR07X10051, or if less than 1.5 amp, the WR07X10055. I have never seen one of these fail! They have a superior thermal conductivity to prevent burnout.

I will take your advise, and buy those relays, and put my RCO-410s on the back burner, and give them a try. I just have been tired of the crummy relays, that they put on these units. But totally worth the try!!! Thanks for the info, and have a Merry Christmas!!! Tom

Very good. I have used these devices for about 5 months, never had a recall. I learned about these from a Sears repairman, he knew what he was doing.
