The evaporator motor behind the panel in the freezer side had been sounding off balance with or without door closed. Others motors appear to be ok as far as noise goes. The upper unit motor is running and quiet.
Today the evap motor sounds normal, but running constantly.
But the relay in the upper unit is switching a lot, very minute or so.
The capacitor check OK.
Temp in both sides rose slowly over night by 10º.
Freezer is now ~36º and fridge ~48º.
Drip tray wasn't excessively full.
Thoughts?

Best is just replace the relay /overload and see if it works.I use a compressor tester, but that is a lot of money.
Because if you here clicking its going to be either the compressor is bad or the relay/overload is bad if the compressor is not starting. Did you see the parts list above? All the parts of your model!!!!

OK, I see the link now. Hope it's the start device/relay then, eh?
Thanks. Your parts list way better than mine as it's searchable. Guess I have an old version.

the new part is a little shorter than the old and the retaining clip doesn't come close to doing it's job.
I can't imagine it, but would that make a difference?

compressor started and the temp has dropped by 20º in the freezer to 26º and 10º in the fridge to 38º in 30 hours.
Do I still have an issue or does that sound about right?
The ice maker is off. Figured I wanted the work to be towards freezing.

This site sense they change there web page has not given me updates. I would like to see the freezer at 0 and fresh food at 37 degrees. Maybe take freezer panel off and post a picture of the evaporator frost pattern. You should have a light frost all the way up on the evaporator.Here is your tech sheet.
