Hi,I,m John I will help you with the fridge not starting ,was the fridge moved standing up ?
Have you removed the beck bottom panel to see if the fan motor by the compressor is going ?
Yes and yes. But the movers tipped it all the way on its side while getting it through the door
The fan is running and the compressor is warm and clicks on and off
it also has 120V
did you let the fridge sit for a few hours before starting it up ?
between the red and white wires
it was in the truck not running for two days, then it was unloaded and has been plugged in for 12 hours
if your getting 120 volts to the relay and its clicking the relay is the problem.
Part 16 on the diagram, yes?
yes the number 16 is the relay .
Sometimes the jarring of the fridge in the moving truck will cause the relay to fail .
I have checked the power at on the red and white wire at the compressor as per the diagnostic routine on the wiring diagram
The relay has a blue and white wire
I have not checked that. Should there be a constant 120 V between those wires? And does the fridge need to be on step 4 of the diagnostic check to test that voltage?
If your getting 120 volts to the relay and its clicking it has to be the relay .
Right, now where can I find on near Fuquay Varina NC on New Years Day?

What are the first three numbers .r
Why do they pinch off the high and low sides instead of putting connectors to the average joe can recharge them?
I can not even test the pressure on the high side with my automotive refridgerant tools
They do that to charge the system then cap it off to make sure of no leaks .
But you cannot check pressure that way...
The first three numbers of what?
the model isent complete, you can get the part number off the relay .
Figures, that will be fun to read, just trying to reach the wirs with a multi meter is fun enough!
you will have to remove the relay to get the part number.
I am trying to figure out which number is XXXXX part number.
Its the same in the auto industry as far as part numbers .
There are many numbers on the relay
I have NEVER seen a relay that doesnt tell you which number is XXXXX part number. Usually they say P/N
