I have an Admiral ASD2514ARW (series 11) refrigerator that stopped working after the freezer door was left open all night (Thanks to my lovely bride... lol). I believe the problem is the start relay or the overload, but I cannot get the terminal cover off. I am afraid of pulling/prying too hard and risking bending one of the connectors on the compressor. Is their a trick to getting it off? The terminal cover part number is 61002138 and pictures are attached.

Also, should I replace both the start relay and the overload?

insert flat blade screwdriver under that bottom tab and pop it off.

thanks

The screwdriver worked. The compressor was clicking on and off. The relay is off of the compressor and it rattles. Cam I check it with a multimeter?

if the relay is clicking and compressor not starting then it is probably bad, just buy a new one and try it.
