Is there any way to test the Starter-ptc?
Answer Hello Ed. You can test the starter for continuity. It should read closed. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Will a starter ptc prevent cold air for refrigerator and the freezer?
Answer Hello Clarence. Yes, if the starter 241707705 is bad and the compressor is not working, the unit will not cool. Hope this helps.
