I hooked my fridge to a generator and it worked for a couple of days then it quit. I spoke to a person named april and said that a relay should fix me up. Then I asked if there was anyway to test the compressor motor but my multi meter is reading OL. Before I hook it up to anything what do I do and how?
ANSWER Hello Jason,
If you set your multi-meter to ohms and you are getting OL across the compressor terminals the you have an open line and need a new compressor. You should have an ohm reading. Another thing that you would want to check is the wires coming to the start relay to ensure you are getting power to the compressor. If nothing at all is running then you may have a defrost timer issue WR9X483. You can turn the timer which is located in the refrigerator compartment behind controls.
