When you buy a GE appliance, the initial purchase is just the beginning of your long, corporate gang rape

Hi, boys and girls! For today's excursion into Corporate Gang Rapeā„¢ excellence, we have a Frigidaire-built washing machine with a GE label slapped on it. Frigidaire parts will work in this machine just fine-- if you happened to know that it was built by Frigidaire in the first place. That's where the Master Appliantologists in the Samurai School come in.

In this example, Master Reg shows us the difference in price for two identical motor control boards for this washing machine. The only difference between them is that one comes in a GE box and the other comes in an Electrolux box... and you get to pay over $200 more for the board that comes in the GE box. And this from a company that has taken billions of dollars in taxpayer-funded bailout money. Ouch!

How to wire in a new compressor start relay on a Frigidaire refrigerator

Start relay part link ==> Posted Image

Your wires will come out of the original overload/relay/start pak but Frigidaire loves to put the little spade retainer locks on there spade clips. You can pull and tug all day long and they won't come out. You have to get a little tiny straight screwdriver, (jewelers screwdrivers), and slide it down in the little square cutout area next to each spade clip and push the little retaining clip while pulling on the wire and it will release and come right out.

You won't have to worry about doing this since the new relay/overload has a different connector, so just cut the old wires and slice the new connector onto the existing wires that you cut off the old overload/relay.
