With a very accurate ohm meter zero'd out, and set to the lowest setting., .......
Check between all terminal options with the probes of the ohm meter until you get the highest reading. ....
The terminal your not on is the COMMON terminal. Record it.
Then, with one probe put it on the common terminal, and check from common to one, and then the other.
the terminal that gives you the highest reading is the start terminal, and then the other is obviously the run terminal.

If you are reading the ohms between all the terminals you should get a reading. If between one you said there was no reading. Try touching one lead to one of all three and the copper tube outside the compressor, if you get a reading the compressor is burned out. In the case of the readings between all three teminals if one shows nothing the internal bi-metal overload is open due to hard starts. Make sure the power is off when doing this and the wires are unpluged from the compressor pins, there position S R C start=S Run=R and C=common Let me know and you are welcome to contact me if you need assistance

I am told if you measure two terminals and note the two with the highest resistance. Then measure each of the two terminals with the highest resistance to the common terminal they the two additional readings should read the same as the two terminals with the highest resistance when adding them together. If after adding the two there is more than 1/2 ohm difference one of the windings is shorted.

I don't know the terminal layout you asked for but here is a method that will work on any compressor anytime.
Be aware equipment manufacturers will use more than one brand of compressor on a given model.
You will need an ohm meter that has a scale that can be set to a
0 to 20 ohms or near there.
Hold the 2 probes together and set until you get a reading of 0 ohms.
The compressor will have 3 terminals
Take the 2 probes and keep checking between 2 at a time until your sure you get the highest resistance reading.
The terminal your not on is COMMON. record it.
Next put one terminal of the meter on that common terminal, and the other on one of the others one at a time.
The terminal between common and the terminal that gives you the lowest reading is RUN.
The one left is obviously start.
For example. You keep taking readings 2 at a time from all the terminals and the highest reading is 12 ohms. Then the one your not on is Common.
You put one probe on the common terminal and check with the other probe both terminals. One reads 10 ohms, and the other 2 ohms. The terminal that reads 2 ohms is Run. The one that reads 10 ohms is start.

Compressor won't run or it is "clicking' on and off: This normally could be a bad start relay and over load for the compressor, dirty condenser coils need cleaning, condenser fan motor is not running or the compressor itself. To check the compressor properly you should test it with an amp meter, each compressor is rated in running amps .If the compressor is drawing too much current, this may be why it is shutting off.Some relays will be easy to notice the broken with them, they may be burnt. Example one, example two, example three. Some of these relays can be removed and give them a little shake, and if they rattle around inside the relay is likely bad. Compressors can also seize and click on and off or one of the electrical windings inside the compressor could have opened up. You can use a test cord to help check the compressor and this also will help with the amp test. If the compressor checks ok and you want to install a replacement start relay. You will need to find out which winding is which. You will need an ohm meter to determine the windings. First check to see if you have windings in the compressor. Then check to see if they are grounded. If the compressor has windings and they are not grounded, you can find which winding is which. Check for grounded windings by reading from each terminal to a good ground on the cabinet. Read from the top terminal to the lower left terminal. Read from the top terminal to the lower right terminal. Read from the lower left terminal to the lower right terminal. Write down the resistance of each reading as you go. The highest reading you get will be the run and start winding of the compressor in series with each other. The other terminal left will be the common terminal. Read from the common terminal to each of the other terminals. The terminal with the lower resistance will be the run winding. The higher resistance the start winding.----------------- To get replacement part you can get it from www.repairclinic.com.The fault is either the relay or the compressor itself.Start by replacing relay if still the problem is same then its faulty/weak compressor.------------------ Thank you.
