Maytag RSD22A Bad relay ?

Recommended Posts


Hello all,  I have a Maytag RSD22A, compressor won't start. Resistance values ok on all 3 pins.


Can I check the relay and compressor by connecting 110V directly to the start pin, or is there a better way?

Noooo- don't do that!!!! Check the relay for continuity between the two parallel holes. If there is continuity it is good, if not than it is broken. Many times you can shake the relay and if it sounds like there is broken pieces internally than it is broken. Also many times a broken relay will have granules come out of it if shaken.
