Hi yes its GC2224GEKB
I believe its the compressor,the fans are already running they run all the time except they just blow out warm air,its only when I open the fridge door it kicks in and starts to start blowing cold air.I should mention its an American style side by side fridge freezer.
ok it will take me a minute to take the panel off
ok the fans are running but the compressor is not door open or otherwise sorry my mistake
The compressor is just cool to the touch I would say room temperature,I have a multimeter but I`m no electrician.If you explain what to do i`m sure i could work it out
OK firstly can you give me the model number of the compressor so that I can look up the wiring configuration.
Yes no problem
There is no actual name.There is a picture of an American Indian figure head and its made in Brazil not sure if that helps.Also has the letters VDE underneath
OK thanks Ian,I have power to the overload assembly on both sides,there is no power to the compressor at all.
OK you state that you have power to the overload are you testing between the plug on connector ie mains side or at the pin outlet side and where is your other probe going to? You should have power between the two cables going to the overload and the klaxon is that correct?
OK there is four wires two red on top and two white on the bottom connectors I`m pulling off the connectors and putting the probe into the actual plugs.Red probe into the Red connector and black probe into the white connector.On the right side I`m guessing this is the supply.I then put my probes on the actual overload pins on the left side which I`m also guessing was the output.I got 245 on both sides
Yes they are definitely separate the relay is fixed to the side of the compressor with a bracket the overload is totally separate.I appreciate your patience on this.How do I send you a picture?
OK there is only one connector on the relay so cant really get that wrong,same result no power.There is definitely power to the overload but not the relay.Is this not making sense?This a bit difficult to do really over the internet.
As mentioned previously there are four wires two red and two white,I was assuming red was positive and white was negative
OK I understand this but you need to have a negative to live or live to earth to get the multimeter to read 220-240 volts. You will get no reading if you just connect one probe wire to a live nor if you connect a probe wire to neutral. It must form a circuit to get a 220v reading hence my question.
