Hi.
Fixing my refrigerator with unobtanium part...
This PTC and thermal breaker joined fit the compressor terminals to do the starting.

There is several PTC resistances; ~4 to ~30 ohms. Do you know if the larger horsepower (~1/2HP) compressors take PTCs of smaller or larger resistance ?

Over a dozen expert parts vendors report as "not available any more, period" To rig my own, have to learn what differs with application to a mini-fridge or to a side-by-side monster.
Frigidaire is pushing to dump their $900+ appliance :mad: and buy a new one because they do not want to manufacture a $10 replacement starter. If am forced that route, will not be that brand. Ever.

Never mind the fridge brand name, what is the brand of compressor & its model number & data on the actual compressor? when looking for a replacement starter PTC.
