Fridge was running super cold, but it was cycling on and off every minute.
Fridge was 30, freezer 0. Now, things are perspiring, fridge is cruising up (55), and freezer is at 38.

I have unplugged it.

I have tried to reply to this post
1951 Frigidaire Relay Replacement
but it wont let me, even though my account has been activated.

Did anyone have a remedy to the relay running hot?
what about a part link for an original relay as a replacement?
I have the same fridge as the above link. People seem to suggest running the supco relay,
Start Relay RO41 Order now for same day shipping. 365 day return policy. RepairClinic.com
but if it runs hot...? what do people suggest?
thanks!

Use the same relay. RO41 is for 1/4 - 1/3 hp. Yours is 1/5 hp compressor so should work fine.
