Diagram for installing Amana Capacitor and Overload/Relay?

We have an Amana side-by-side fridge, Model ARS2464BW. It stopped cooling and we had a serviceman man out last night. He told us we needed to get a new Hard Start repair kit and tested the compressor - it is okay.

Unfortunately, the service guy did not put the parts back together as they were, and we aren't sure how to put the new parts in. We already have the parts (Capacitor is C8931612 and Overalod & Relay is 12555902). We know that the compressor can be ruined if it is put in wrong. We also think the serviceman referenced "wires" but we do not see any wires.

Can anyone help us confirm whether there are wires and how to put the new hard start kit in correctly? Are there any diagrams available?

We appreciate any help you can provide! Thanks!

The overload, start relay part 12555902 just plugs into the side of the compressor and the run capacitor plugs into it.
If the compressor fails to start and kicks out on the overload, you have a bad compressor.
A 3n1 hard start kit is NOT recomended if the compressor is a "newer" one drawing less than two amps.
If the servicer failed to plug in the wires to this device, refer to the service sheet supplied with the fridge, with Amana it might be printed on the back of fridg.
