Major Appliances/Kenmore Elite


no cooling either side.  Compressor not kicking on.  Cool fan and all other electornics ok.

model 106.53606202
serial 0639052

can't find a decent wiring diagram.  Can't find the capacitor.

Help please


Basically you do not need a wiring diagram to troubleshoot that unit with a none working compressor just yet.  If fans are running in the freezer section and the condenser fan motor by the compressor, I would agree at this point the electronics are seemingly okay.  First thing I would do is unplug the unit and then gain access to the compressor area.  Now remove the relay from the compressor simply by pulling it off the three compressor pin terminals.  Sometime you have to slip a small screw driver behind the relay to get it started.  Once off, give it a shake.  Does it rattle like a babies rattle?  If so, replace it.
