I have an old fridge that I believe is tripping on O/L. The number on it 5901083. I was just curious as to if there is a newer replacement or a bypass to get the thing running again. Thanks in advance.

Very common 1/8th HP Frigidaire YT relay

.
Frigidaire relay # 5901083 substituted to # 5876896 and then to # 5305876896 all of which have been discontinued for years. There also used to be several universal aftermarket replacement relays by Mars and Gemline but they've all been discontinued for ages too.

Some OEM Frigidaire relays come up for auction occasionally. Any of the above part numbers will work. There are a couple currently available (1-used, 1-new).
