I looked at the tag inside and it said it was manufactured in 2003, so it was about 14 years old. I looked online and saw that a replacement motor on it was about $300 for the part alone, so I figured I’d just buy a new one. But while looking all this up I came upon websites saying that it’s rarely the motor that goes out, but the more often it’s the capacitor or start switch, and it’s an easy, inexpensive fix. That made me look into things deeper. I read websites and watched YouTube videos and somewhere along the way found a link to this item. For less than $10 and free 2-day shipping with Prime, definitely worth a try before shelling out the cash for a new fridge.
After I got the part I pulled my fridge out, unplugged it and took a look. I don’t really have any experience doing work like this, but at my old condo we had a brand new GE Profile fridge and over 10 years we had repaired at least 3 times at about $200 each repair. The mechanicals of my Frigidaire looked nothing like the videos I had seen. Most of them seemed to have the capacitor plugged into the motor with the start switch connected to it, but mind had the start switch connected further inside the fridge. Still, since I was going to get a new fridge if this didn’t work I figured what did I have to lose by trying?? So I did made my best guess and unhooked the start switch then pulled out the capacitor. Sure enough, just like the internet said when I shook the capacitor, I could hear the broken pieces inside rattling around. It took me about ten minutes to hook up the wires to the Supco all in one. I took a good look at everything to make sure all the connections looked good, then I plugged her in, went around front and turned the fridge to cold, and she started purring like a kitten. A few seconds later I could feel cold air blowing in both the fridge and freezer. It worked!!
Some websites and videos said this should only be a temporary fix until you get the expensive replacement parts, but other said it’s fine to keep it permanently, so that’s what I’m doing. Three weeks in it’s still working perfectly. I can’t believe how inexpensive and easy it was to fix my own fridge! I’ve been telling friends and family about it ever since. I kind of hope that someone else’s fridge will break so I can look like a hero when I fix it for them. :-) Anyway, I definitely recommend this part and also that you watch videos and read websites because that helped me in a big way, both in confidence and seeing how different brands of fridge look different inside. Save your money and fix it yourself with this!!
Because I don't know if this was actually the part I needed and relied on internet experts for help, I cannot say if a defect part, or the wrong part that killed my freezer. No one would work on my freezer and even then a service call was nearly the price of the freezer, so it was my inexpensive attempt to fix it. A technician could have told me my freezer was junk for a lot more money, I at least had fun blowing up the motor.
After doing some preliminary work on my freezer I found the start relay to be broken. The relay is not being made anymore (not even 2nd hand) wasn't sure what I was going to do. Then I found this on YouTube University, and thought I would give it a shot. I packed my deep freeze with dry ice and waited 48 hrs for Amazon to deliver. If you are even kinda handy and know how 110V electricity works you can install this. I had this installed in less than 10 minutes and freezer up and running again. I cannot say how long this "band-aid" will work, but if this 12.00 part last 30-60 days its worth every penny to me by saving over 1,000 dollars worth of food until I can get to Lowes or Home Depot to purchase a new freezer. Thank you Surpo...
