Customer Question

I have a bad smell coming from our Kitchen Aid Superba (KSRG27). It smells like burning wire. The refrigerator is a side-by-side unit and seems to be running OK. We think it may be a little white box connected to the compressor, which has blackened connections on one side. The compressor is an Embraco EGY 90HLP. Is this box a relay switch or overload?

you need to change the start device on this as soon as possible, they have had a lot of problems with these. these come in a kit now because they used so many different ones on the same refrigerators,
Starting device kit, compressor. *Wiring could differ from original, will possibly need to be installed by an appliance repairperson.
