Checking out a air conditioner compressor and compressor problems FIRST...


Checking out a air conditioner compressor and compressor problems
FIRST DISCONNECT ALL ELECTRICAL POWER
Ohm the windings
C to R = example 1.2
C to S = example 3.2
R to S = example 4.4 total of C to R and C to S or very close.

Then ohm each terminal to ground you shouldn't get any reading
If the compressor is hot or you tried to start it, the ohms will be close but not exact.
No reading from C to R or C to S open winding or thermal overload.
Let compressor completely cool down then ohm the C to R and C to S again
If it’s an open overload, you will get an ohm reading after it cools down and the overload closes,
you may just need to add refrigerant.
No reading from R to S and C to S open start winding.
In case of any open windings the compressor will have to be replaced.
If the compressor is getting the proper voltage and won’t start, it could be locked up.
You need an Ammeter to check this to see if it’s drawing locked rotor amps (60 amps or above)
You also need to check the run and start capacitor.
A bad run or start capacitor, the compressor won’t run, it will just hum.
If the compressor will run, but quits after a while and all of the above checks out OK.
It could be drawing high amps ( you will need an ammeter to check this out). Dirty condenser or condenser motor not running, overcharge of refrigerant, shunted windings, bad bearings in compressor.
The compressor gets hot and Suction or big line coming in to outdoor unit is warm or slightly cool, you are low on charge or metering device bad or stopped up.
If compressor runs for a while and quits and the suction line is frozen, cold or cool, then the filter, evaporator or condenser coils are dirty or plugged up, blower or fan motor not running and unit going off on high or low pressure switches.

Fan works, but not AC cooling


start with checking a/c pressures is compressor cycling? does it have electric cooling fan? it should come on with a/c. usually there is a low limit/high limit switch. if pressure is low, say below 22psi @ low side port, switch will cut compressor. A quick electric "jump" of low limit switch will confirm clutch,compressor operation,but if pressure is low you may want to add freon. know your a/c system r-12 or r-134a,iv'e found converting to r-134a cheaper than purchasing r-12. r-134a takes a special pag oil and should not be used/mixed with ester oils. i could say more on subject but that's a start,of course always wear safety glasses and approach high side port with caution,which most newer cars don't have. thanks

Freezer not working


If the freezer is not cooling, then problem relates to compressor.but still wait more 12 hours and see if it starts cooling.Basically it takes approx 24 hours to regain its cooling, once its unplugged for few hours and then plugged in.---------- So once again check after another 12 hours and see if you notice cooling.But if there is no cooling then yes its compressor issue.-----------

If freezer will not start cooling, then fridge will also not start.------------

A/C Compressor won't turn on Can jump compressor from battery and compressor comes on & cools. Hi pressure switch checks out ok and 12 volts going to hi pressure switch no voltage to compressor


the high pressure switch kicks the compressor off when the pressure rises, the low pressure switch kicks it on, check that switch, unplug the wire and use a continuity meter to see if the switch functions, also check for power getting to the plug itself

Fridge makes a clicking noise everything in freezer melted and fridge won't cool. Model number ED5VHEXVQ03. I replaced the starting relay but not the resistor. Problem is the same still clicks...


Hi,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigeratordo not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many otherthings that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing thencheck out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to starttrouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then callinga repair person to do a simple thing for you...

I got kalvinator frostfree model KNT283GY. After defrost action is free. Timer gives voltage to compressor. The compressor will not start . there is power on compressor ,fan works but compressor will not...


Condenser fan motor may be running a little slower therefore causing a warmer compressor. Also the refrigerator must be plugged into a dedicated outlet wired 12/3 with 20 amp breaker.
With the compressor to hot the thermal overload will open therefore the compressor will not run until it cools and overload resets.
