This has been years ago and the fridge is across town now, but I still have access to it. I'll see if I can snap a picture. This may take me a few weeks though. It is still working.The jist of it though is there's a box attached to the compressor with wires going to it. This is the start run relay which on mine crumpled apart when disassembled. You are replacing this part with the solid state start run relay capacitor combo. Follow the diagram that came with it is the best I can tell you for now. I don't think you can hurt anything if you get it wrong.
