You played with the radio didn't you. When you tried to peak and tune it you tuned it to the wrong side of peak.

Check the capacitor, but be careful, they store a good charge, like a tazer! Once removed and safely discharged, check it for damage and function. A dent will ruin it.
One check is to connect an ohm meter to the tabs, the needle should swing over and come back. Reverse the leads and do it again, the needle should swing again. If so, it's usually good.
Also check the motor bearings. With the belt off, the pulley should not be able to move side to side, and the motor should spin freely and quietly.

Whirlpool capicator 189-227MFD how can I tell if its good

To check the capacitor disconnect the wires from it and use a meter set to ohms..if using a digital meter set it to a high ohms setting,place one meter lead on each wire terminal and the display should constantly be in motion in as much the display will go from 1000 omhs to 20,000 ohms and just continue that if the cap. is good and the display will stay the same and never change if the cap. is bad
On a analog meter the needle will swing to zero and rapidly go back if the cap. is good and will swing to zero ohms and stay there and the needle is will not drop if the capacitor is bad.

How do you check the capacitor on the motor

When using a analog meter set to high ohms of resistiance the needle will swing and drop back radiply if the cap. is good. If needle doesn't move it's bad

with a digital meter the numbers will constantly be in motion rising from 30k ohms to 34k down to 200 back to 1k and so on and so on
if it is bad w/digital meter it will be at a paticular ohms value and never change

Want to replace the needle on model #825 Fisher Price record player. Is there an easy way to raise the needle arm to view the cartridge slot or just slide new cartridge in from the front?

If you remove the lid off the player, the arm then swings all the way backwards and allows you ample viewing for needle replacement when turned upside down.

Side x side will not cool or freeze i did the basic tests as you stated the only problem so is the capasitor near the compressor ;no continunity. Model ED20PKXBW00 whirlpool.

Good day,
The capacitor will not show continuety. That is normal.
To test it, you must have an anolog vom meter, a digital meter will not work.
If you have an anolog meter (the type that has a needle that swings from left to right) set the ohms setting at it's highest position, at least RX1000. Higher would be better,
Check the meter by touching the probes together, They should swing the needle from left to right. Then..
This must be done quickly. Place one probe on each terminal of the capacitor. Then quickly reverse the probes. You should see a short, quick, jump of the meter.
If so, the capacitor is O.K. If nothing the capacitor is bad.

Thank you for using FixYa
