Kenmore side by side burning smell
« on: February 26, 2015, 07:08:39 PM »

I have a Kenmore Model #25351399101.  It's started making a burning smell that smells kind of electrical, but not totally. I've had it repaired before for the same type thing and he replaced the brains. I ordered and just installed it, but the smell came back when I plugged it back in. I've read that it could be the start relay, but can't find the part on their diagrams. Help please!  Thank you.

The start relay is the piece that plugs directly into the compressor.
218721119 is the part number

Thank you so much!  I got the part in, but the new piece is upside down compared to the original. The red wire was on top for the old, with blue on the bottom.  Do I switch them, or leave it the same?
