Question about Kenmore Freezers
It might have. Most likely you can start it again, but you will have to follow my instructions carefully. If you are willing, I'll tell you how to check it to see it it's bad and if not how to make it start again.
You will need a Ohm. meter and it will help if you know just a little about using it. If you do, gain access to the compressor. You will see where the wires go to it. The wires are connected to a piece or two that connects to your compressor. After unplugging your freezer, pull the parts off that are attached to the compressor. Now you will see three small metal pins sticking out of the compressor. Take your ohm meter, touch one lead from it to one of the pins and take the other lead and touch it to ground or somewhere on the copper tubing. If you have a reading, the compressor is grounded meaning it's bad. If yo have no reading. Take a lead and touch it to one of the pins while you are touching the other lead to another pin. It makes no difference which tow of the three your touching. If the compressor is good you should have a reading. Jot it down. Now move only one of the leads to the pin you have not touched yet. Jot that reading down if you have one. Now move the last lead you just moved and touch it back on the pin you started touching it to and move the other lead to the pin you just moved the other from. Jot that reading down. If the compressor is good, you first will have a reading each time you were to jot one down. Now look at you numbers you jotted down. The two smallest readings should add up to the largest reading if not exact it should be real close. If so, we can restart your compressor. You will need a Supco 3 in 1. You can get one from www.appliancepartsonline.com the part number is RCO410. It cost $21.95 plus shipping. The packaging will have the instructions on it. What you will do is gather all the parts that you pulled off the compressor. Cut them off. You should end up with only two wires. The 3 in 1 will have two Black wires that you will connect together with the supplied wire not. There will be three wires with ends on them coming off the 3 in 1 also. they will be White, Red and Black. Follow the color coded instructions on package. When you have completed these steps. Plug your freezer in. The compressor will start and run. The closer the numbers you added before where, most likely the longer the compressor will last.
Please rate solution.
