Destroys

2 posts in this topic

I am working on a whirlpool refrigerator and need to replace the defrost timer. It is kicking my butt! I installed the new defrost timer very common part number 482493. I install these all the time and normally when I put the jumper on the proper terminal I can see the motor spinning all the time both in compressor run and in defrost. However when this compressor is on the timer does not advance. when the compressor is off or the thermostat shuts the compressor off. the timer will advance. This seems backwards to me. I have put the jumper wire on all four terminals and tried it. It works the same way on terminal one and terminal three. I'm a little confused I don't know what to do. I have installed many of these timers and now I am second-guessing everything I remember about these timers LOL. I attach the wiring diagrams please help
