How To Replace the Compressor Relay
Before testing the compressor motor, unplug the freezer to avoid an electrical shock hazard. Also, if the compressor uses a capacitor, it may contain a lethal electrical charge. Do not touch the terminals until you have discharged the capacitor.
A faulty compressor relay can result in the inability of the compressor to start. Refer to our diagnostic section for more information. The compressor relay is accessed from the lower rear of the freezer. The compressor is labeled "A", the relay is located in the terminal box which is located at the position labeled "B".
The compressor relay can be accessed by removing the terminal cover box. The cover is held on by tension or with a retaining clip.
