Hello I have a 1938 Hotpoint refrigerator. The start relay had gone bad and the wiring was pretty sketchy too, so I replaced it all, and added a new start relay, RO41. When I tried to wire it up, I cannot get the compressor or fan to run. If I power the relay directly, the fan and compressor will run. Am I doing something wrong here?

Can you take a few pics of the wiring and repairs you've done and post them here? Is there a wiring diagram on the back of the machine?
