We have a 1955 Frigidaire SS 74 model. The compressor isn't working and we think the relay switch is bad and we are trying to figure out what relay switch we need to be looking for to replace it. Want to start there rather than just get rid of the refrigerator. Thanks

The relay (# 5305876896) for that model is discontinued and is NLA. It is a 1/8th HP compressor so you could try a universal 1/8 HP relay/overload like this:

Rick previously posted some example wiring diagrams to help to install such a relay in place of an original Frigidaire YT relay as it is quite different than the original.

I hope it helps.
