I have an FSP 819099 overload/relay kit, and need help with attaching it to the compressor.  The part comes with a very small white wire tie threaded through two slots on the back. Do I remove that white wire tie in order to thread the larger black wire tie through those openings and around the compressor, or do I leave the white wire tie in place and run the black one through the loop of the white one?  The second method seems wrong to me, as it would make it difficult to use the adhesive to attach the part to the compressor, because the part is being held away from the compressor by the square end of the white wire tie.

never installed this particular relay, but it really shouldn't matter as long as you get it stationary.

Here is the link to the part on Repairclinic:

http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-EB19AKXLNR0-%3d%3dc15i2668&PartID=2668

If you look at the black part, you can see the two slots on opposite sides of the top of what is facing you. No white wire tie is shown, although some other online repair parts places DO show that wire tie going through those slots.

Sure would be nice if one of you experienced repairpersons could speak from experience as to whether or not to clip off the white wire tie - would make us rank amateurs feel better!

Elderly Whirlpool EB19AKXLNR0, not direct replacement, but a retrofit. Yes, it is heat transfer paste. We just got one response from another guy on another site who is experienced with the part and who says to ditch the white wire tie and put the black in its place, so we're going with that. Thanks!

Repair is done - and discovered that the larger black zip tie would not fit thread through the slots - kept hitting something, didn't want to mess up internal parts. We'd already cut off and removed the white zip tie. So - ganged another zip tie to make the total length longer, and put it around the front end of the part, rather than the back. Nice and snug - between the ties and the adhesive, it's not going anywhere. Fridge back in business.

Just thought I'd post this in case someone else searches for the same info.

Didn't the part come with the instruction sheet?

If not, here's the instructions....

http://www.servicematters.com/docs/part_instruct/819093.pdf

I thought it had some info about the strap, but it appears not.  They detail the different wiring procedures pretty well, I guess they figured it wasn't rocket science as far as attaching the strap so didn't really need go into details about it.

Wille, we did get those instructions - but no info about that pesky white wire tie. I agree, in theory putting the black strap in through the slots is not rocket science, but it wouldn't feed through, so we skipped the slot and strapped around the front of the piece. As my parts guy of 30 years said, "doesn't matter, as long as you use the tube of sealant and put that and the correct end of the overload against the compressor - and make it snug."

Fridge has been cold for 24 hours now - I'm happy.
