Remove the 3n 1 as soon as possible, particularily if the run capacitor was not installed. These units will destroy the start winding in the compressor!
Order the correct factory parts, AP4013414, start device and AP4074064, run capacitor. The original wires to the old start device where blue an white.
If the 3 n 1 was used because the compressor would not start with a new, original start device, you probably have a bad compressor.

Default continue the thought

The 3-in-1 does contains a capacitor--- it is all together -- capacitor and relay.

I want to order the seperate units and install but the question is __ is there a lead to these items that will tie to the power line in the harness ??

looking at the photos of the pieces I cannot see a lead for this. I am probably overly concerned about nothing but not sure....

I did do a continuity test on the leads on the compressor and also the three leads against the clean metal of the compressor-- all checked good ...

Thanks for your help big guy..... joe

Turn the fridg on and measure the voltage to the blue and white wires going to the compressor, should be 115 volts.

The parts came today and I installed on the compressor--- results are: the compressor does come online but does not stay on --- runs about 4-6 seconds then cycles off. waits about 10 15 seconds then recycles again.....

I will search the database for this -- what do you think ? low freon? thanks for the assistance... hiway26

If the syptoms are the same the first time this compressor failed, you probably have varnish buildup in the compressor. Sometimes a oil additive Supco 88 will fix this but takes a pro to put it in which is difficult for these fractional HP compressors, probably not worth fixing. Good fix would be new compressor, but rather pricey.

Richappy --- This sounds like 'uh -oh' the string just run out, I guess.... more facts on this box---- brought to me because someone got rid of it-- initially the 3-n-1 was off the compressor and in several pieces, so after checking the nodes on the compressor and also to the body itself, all this looked good for the compressor, so me thinks 'well, just buy and install the seperate relay and such and maybe the box will go for a while(it is a beautiful box with bottom freezer) --- so what you are telling me is there is some problem in the compressor afterall........ I really thank you for the info.... hiway26
