My compressor does not come on. The condenser fan comes on when I plug in the refrigerator and turn the temperature switch on but the compressor does not come on. I wired the compressor straight to power source and the compressor come on. Could it be the control to the compressor or some sensor?
ANSWER Hi Bennie. Remove Power. Use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist you in your diagnostics. If the overload part # WR08X10015 is open - infinity- not closed 0-ohms then it needs replaced. The same as the compressor relay part # WR07X10051. You should have between 4-6 ohms with a cold relay. make sure you get 120 vac to the relay when testing. If not then you will need the main control board part # WR55X10942. Thank You.
