Tips for a great answer:
I don't recommend replacing any parts
on your refrigerator until you determine that the compressor is not shorting to
ground. Unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel that covers the
compressor. There should be 3 wires going inside the cover of the compressor.
Mark all 3 and mark their location so if compressor is OK you can put them back
in same order. The plastic cover may snap on and you may need to squeeze the
sides to unlock the cover and sometimes there is a metal clip holding the cover
in place. Remove the cover. May look hard but it's simple. There will be three
connections under the cover and 2 will go through the start relay. Unplug them
leaving the three prongs exposed. They may be marked R =Run, S=Start and
C=Common. Set your meter on continuity and then begin by testing 2 at a time
until you have checked S to R and R to C an C to S and S to R again. You should
get a reading all the way around. If no reading between any of the pairs as you
go around you should get no reading between any two the compressor has an open
winding and is defective. Then if it passes that test then touch one probe to R
and the other to the copper pipes or clean metal on outside of compressor, then
S to metal outside and C to metal outside. If you get a reading this way even
just a little. The compressor is a burnout. Then let me know what you find.
