Question about Refrigerators
Overload thermal protector is tripping out. When a mechanical refrigerator is unplugged it should remain unplugged for 5-10 minutes to allow the refrigerant pressure to equalize. If you unplug it and then plug it right back in the overload will open on and off until the pressure in the system balance to the point where the compressor will start.
This protector is a two way protector. It opens on Over current and or over temperature. If a condenser is plugged with dust , hair or what ever the fan which circulates the air for cooling the system will not move enough air to keep the compressor with-in operating temperature range. The thermal protector will open.
