Please use the OEM, factory part.

Your extra 2 wires are the 120v supply to the compressor, I doubt you need to worry about polarity.


It is a band-aid. Used in emergencies waiting for a factory order part.

Having found a few installed as a permanent fix by other techs, I WAS surprised that Whirlpool covered the warranty when the compressor later failed as a result... They want to pay for it, I'll replace it...

We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.
