If you will look at the wiring diagram, you'll see that the blue wire goes to the Common compressor terminal, which is the top terminal on the new overload. The white wire goes to the run compressor terminal.

You may need to purchase the proper crimp on spade terminals, if they are the wrong size.

Thanks, so I figured out the top. Capacitor is on the bottom and the the blue wire would be on top when the unit is mounted to the compressor. I was told by a friend that I needed to replace the Overload. Problem is when I put the new overload ini get the same buzzing sound as before that last 10 seconds and shuts off and then tries to start again every 2 minutes, never switching the compressor on. Which part is bad? Capacitor,overload or the compressor?

If the new start device did not fix the problem then the compressor itself is bad. The mechanical part of the compressor (pump) has more friction than it should and motor is not able to start it.

There are three solutions.

The first and very expensive is to replace the compressor. You can not do it yourself and it will cost you about $650 - $750. You probably will have one year warranty on it.

The second is to install the 3-in-1 start booster. It has more power torque and will make the compressor to run. It cost just $15.60 but nobody cab tell you how much longer it will last after this repair. It can be a few more years or a few more days.

The third is to shop for a new refrigerator.
