Hello all,

I have a ~20 year old Whirlpool fridge which sometimes runs for a short time and then trips the breaker. Sometimes it trips the breaker as soon as I plug it in.

I've tried connecting it to various circuits, both GFCI and non-GFCI, but get the same result.

I'm thinking about trying to fix it instead of trashing it and am not sure whether I should replace the Capacitor or the Start Relay & Overload as a first attempt

Do any of you have a suggestion on one of these two options, or have a better idea?

Thanks for your input.
