Refridgerator/Freezer Not Cooling
First of all, let me say that I'm a 50 year old single woman. If I can do this repair, anyone can! After unscrewing the back of the unit that houses the compressor, I found the relay overload switch which is attached to the compressor. I pulled the part off and discovered that it comes in one piece. The replacement part came in 3 pieces. I intially thought they sent the wrong part. After a little thinking outside of the box, I figured out that the replacement part was indeed the correct part and that it comes in 3 pieces instead of one. It would have taken 5 minutes to repair if I had realized this early on. Once replaced, the refrigerator/freezer was cooling within 10 min. I sent the Run Capacitor back after telephoning a customer service rep. She was so courteous and helpful! What a fabulous company. I highly recommend. I saved myself approx. $250.00 doing it myself.

Refigerator not cooling
Through experience I determined the problem was with the compressor trip switch. It's the small white piece that looks like a flat fuse.

The parts arrived in 3 working days. Instructions were included - very easy to understand. From start to finish I replaced the switch in about 15 minutes. Frig is now working perfectly.

3 pieces come along in the kit - however, all I needed was the switch, but for the price I changed out all three to assure compatibilty.

I also ordered the cover which was not needed.

A Happy Customer! {:-)

My refrigerator and freezer are no longer keeping cool. I replaced the capacitor, but it didn't help. If i test the relay overload for continuity will that prove the overload is good or bad? I tested from socket for the condenser post to the prong for the wire connection and did not have continuity. I also tested for continuity of the condenser and it tested good.
For model number PTB2153GRQ

Hello Dennis, thank you for your question. Yes, if you test the overload and it does not show continuity it will have to be replaced. If the compressor is not powering up to start the cooling process the overload and then the defrost timer should also be tested. I hope this helps!

I heard my refridgerator popping and smell burning i also saw fire at the back under. Could it be the relay overload kit?
For model number MZD2752GR

Hello Winston, thank you for your question. Yes, that could have been from the relay and overload kit, condenser fan motor, blade and wiring. Good luck with your repair!

I purchased the above part (start switch for Maytag model mtb 2176 hr but no instructions came with the new switch
For model number 12002794

Hi Pete, Thank you for your question. This is a fairly easy repair to do. You should just be able to pull the old one out and install the new one. There is a video on our website that you can reference on how to install the. The relay and the refrigerator in the video may not show exactly like the one you have, but it will give you a general idea on how to install the part. You will find the video under part number PS11738533. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!
