is the start relay supposed to rattle at all? my old one rattled noticeably, so based on what I read decided to buy another one thinking that part was broken. i decided to buy a certified used one though (i know, i should have just bought new) and out of the box, which was opened, i shook it and heard the same rattle sound. installed new used relay and no difference afaik. i tried to search for some videos to see what the rattle is supposed to be like but could find any. so either i was sent a broken part or the part is supposed to have some sort of rattle. would appreciate a quick response so i can order the part again if necessary. thanks!!!
i used a multimeter and the old one jumps from 0-200. the new one seems to like .05
other background info side by side refrigerator was not getting cold. food in freezer thawing and fresh food size was pretty much room temp. freezer side DOES shoot cold air out sometimes. first read to clean the condensor coils. layer of pet hair over the front which i vacuumed and blew. did not help. checked evap coils and no sign of frost anywhere. evap fan does turn on sometimes. temp settings normal. lights functioning properly. checked back panel and didn't notice anything unusual, but i don't really know what i'm doing either. compressor is hot and fan working, but not sure if vibrating. a subtle vibrate at best. there is noise coming from the fridge but nothing loud. no clicking sounds ever.
