Nukem, Danno! Pretty good meltdown shot. I'm afraid you're gonna need to replace that compressor; that melted peg will always be a weak point and is much more likely to fail or cause another failure.

How's the ticker doing?

Does the term 3'n1 start device mean anything to you? I assume this is out of any SS warranty?

Good pictures, thanks for posting 'em! Looks like it was the OEM relay, too. Don't see that too often; I see lots of these relays fry so they shake like rattles, but don't see them weld themselves to the compressor control studs!

A 3-in-1 may be appropriate here: give the customer the choice and be right upfront about the downside to using a 3-in-1.

One other thing: the compressor may be covered under warranty, so you may be able to get it at no cost.

A 3-in-1 could get it working again, although the fire department might have to make another trip out.

If you could get a good mechanical connection on the damaged pin, it would work. Maybe you could solder it on. You could also use the overload from the whirlpool relay set, then you would have temperature protection.

BTW.. better check the windings, a megger would be nice in this case.

Hello, my island friend.  I recommend that you dispose of these inferior products of infidels and come, buy a nice muslim refrigerator.  You and all your wives will be much happier and will enjoy many more hours of steamy, sensual love.  I'm afraid I do not know exactly why this is so, only that it is.  Allahu Akbar!
