Okay, I spent about 45 minutes thoroughly trying to clean the condenser coils, they're almost impossible to get to under this fridge, and after removing about the same amount of dust as last time, I haven't had the problem again! Will update the thread if things go back to the way they were. Thanks for reading and helping guys.

I suppose you don't have the part number of the replacement Relay ?


Alright, I pulled out the parts... I have a black box (capacitor?) plugged into a white overload/relay (?) plugged into the compressor.

The capacitor has the following on it: CMKS ShiZuki, NSK85212, etc. etc. (Sears replacement part)
The overload has the following: 5SP15N314LFM, etc. etc. (Sears replacement part)

To be clear, the WHITE BOX was replaced in May, I do not believe he replaced the black box.

Sorry for all the replies, I wish you could edit a post.

I was told by the repairman that it was the same as the factory-installed relay (small generic-looking white relay). He said that if problems persist he could install a different model with a start capacitor (though I assumed this relay had a start capacitor as well?). He said the new relay would be cheaper than the old one (so wouldn't cost me anything) so I doubted that he was just trying to sell me something new. He basically said we want to try as much as possible without having to replace the compressor.

Also forgot to mention that I cleaned the condenser coils as best I could, they don't really have anything caked on, just some fluff from dust. I can post photos of any parts of the fridge if requested. Thanks again.
