when plugged in fan works
compressor clicks
i don't know what is bad, compressor or starter relay or overload protector.
my compressor has different design than others.
where as 3 pin which shape as an triangle, mine is upside down.
googling klixon overload protector only result in shopping no info on testing its functionality.
Same with starter relay i can't find like mine on net.
if anyone has knowledge of testing these will be appreciated.
p.s i saw 3 wires around compressor, but red one was unplugged when i found it.
i wonder if red suppose to be unplugged or not. i can't read circuit diagram.4k70.jpg

Something ain't right here, diagram shows the red belongs on a start capacitor but your compressor looks like it has been replaced at some point, and a non-capacitor compressor was used.  The upside down configuration is ok as long as the pins measure out ok, you need to measure continuity between the 3 pins and to ground to rule out an electrically failed compressor.

Also, the diagram is for a PTC relay, but that compressor is using an open coil magnetic relay

Very astute observation, Brother kdog!

that is true sir, it looks like it had been serviced 

for compressor windings i got 2 + 13 = 15

i need to know how to test magnetic ptc relay and overload protector.

just test for continuity on overload between line & compressor pin.   on start relay measure line going in with the Start  & Run  outlets.

 

In 1 you will have to turn relay upside down to get reading.  continuity.  Does compressor click right away? or runs for a few seconds?

 

possible bad compressor? also do you have 120v coming in to compressor?  could be weak PCB relay?  might as well use  a 3 in 1

 

start relay since it has been  replaced, cheapest way to test, used them before as temps while looking for OEM Relay on LG , & 2 years later still working, LOL (never found )   yes those start relays associated with your model are NLA.

overload protector and start relay is good

continuity checks out all good.

120v line coming into compressor good.

 

this is symptoms 

when i plug in the power

 

compressor buzz for 1 sec and overload protector clicks and silence.

this sequence repeats.

 

i am strongly suspect compressor.

but like i posted earlier, electric winding is good. 12 + 3 = 15

checked all 3 pins with compressor bare body shortage but no.

but can compressor mechanically fail?

 

is there anyway i can know compressor is bad other than checking winding?
