I have a Northland Desginer Series Refrigerator with top freezer. Does anyone have a parts diagram or can tell me where the overload relay is located?

Thanks.

Didn't you replace or have this relay replaced before? http://appliantology...st/#entry168994

yeah, from reading your previous post, it was obvious there was a problem in the start windings in the compressor /relay system. You experienced something I've advised techs to check ie testing a seemingly fine running compressor by unplugging it, immediately plugging it back in and seeing if it will restart on its own without having to leave it unplugged for a period of time. Samurai gave it a good name the other day, "stressing the compressor." Since you still had the problem after changing the start relay, you definitely had a bad compressor.

Northlands are strange beasts, I cannot find anything on them and have never worked on one. . If you know how to access your compressor, the relay should be directly attached to it. Can you provide a picture lf your compressor making sure to include an image of anything directly attached to it?
