Kenmore Refrigerator Mod No. 106.60232900. Constant voltage to Starter control, but compressor comes on for only about 5 seconds and goes off for 25 seconds, then comes on for 5 seconds again. Is the problem the start control or the compressor?

Hello, My name isXXXXX you for choosing Just Answer, It is my pleasure to assist you today. Hi , the most common problem is the start relay like you suspect. no they used a lot of different relays on these refrigerators, this is the one they show on yours but it may be different, does yours look like this ?

Yes. Looks exactly like my control.

okay. The only thing you can do is replace the relay, if the compressor doesn't start with a new relay (which usually it does ) then theres a compressor issue . you can order this on line at Sear's for around $24.00 at this link. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/W10194431/0046/106&pathTaken=partSearch&blt=14&prst=0&shdPart=W10194431 or if you have a parts supplier nearby the part number is XXXXX W10194431 Well wishes and thanks, Bryan
