How can I tell if the capacitor on my compressor is bad and if so can it be ohm out?
Answer Hello Rodney. When testing the capacitor, you should get a spike of resistance and the go back to open. If it does this, then the capacitor is good. Hope this helps.

My Frigidaire Compressor Run Capacitor is connected with red & white long wire. How to seperate wire from Compressor Run Capacitor?
The run capacitor should either sit on top of the overload relay or just have wire that connect to it that would be able to be disconnected. If the unit is not cooling and the relay is clicking then the start relay would be faulty as opposed to the run capacitor.
Refrigerator and freezer running but not cold at all. However will suddenly start working and getting cold periodically. Seems like some sort of switch but not sure which one.
Answer Karen, There are several switches involved in making the refrigerator operate and cool. You'll need to listen closely when the refrigerator starts to cool, if you hear a clicking noise from the back of the refrigerator, the issue could be a faulty start relay/overload on the compressor 5304491941, but based on the information and intermittent cooling, the first thought would be a faulty ADC(adaptive defrost control)Board 5303918476. This control board controls power to the compressor and the defrost cycle. If there is a weak or faulty circuit in the control board, it could cause the compressor to operate intermittently and have periods of no cooling, then operate the compressor.
Part# 218909901 would this part keep the refridgirator from coming on and the light not to work
Answer Hello Patricia. No, it would not prevent the light from working. You need to look at the breaker or a wiring issue in the unit.
