Samsung Refrigerator no starter relay only overload ?
Model Number: RFG297AArs Brand:
5 - 10 years
watched your youtube videos, i want to replace the starter relay and the overload parts. where your video shows where these items are at, I see the overload which is clipped into a plastic connector that has 5 wires going up to and through the top of that lower compartment via push connector.. the plastic connector connected to the overload is what has the 3 prong female connection that attaches to the side of the compressor. There is no start relay in that area or anywhere else around it that i can see. Ive looked everywhere. the refrigerator use to work fine so i know it must have one somewhere. what am i missing ? Im going to replace the overload, but where the hell is the start relay ? btw, my compressor says its an Embraco Vegy 8H
thanks for any help you could provide.
backstory: fridge was fine, started to get warm in freezer and refrigerator. i added 134a to the correct level on the gauge. worked great for 2 weeks, then got warm again, added more 134a to appropriate level. that worked great for 1 week, then never got cold again when i added 134a. The fan is on next to the compressor, the compressor does not turn on so it stays cool to the touch.
