Kenmore Chest Freezer no start help mdl 198.8583580

03 July 2015 - 10:24 AM

compressor on my chest freezer wont start. I plug it in, it hums, and then stops. A few years back i changed to a solid state relay starter and got rid of the capacitor. It has been working fine until now. I checked the relay and it is not rattling. I even took the starter and relay off and put on another kennmore i have in my garage and it fired the compressor right up. I then did am ohm test on the compressor. Resistance was between 4 and 12 ohms across the three legs and there was no open or grounding.

My thoughts are the relay is fine because it starts another machine and the compressor reading seem ok. I just wont fire up.

What am i missing or any thoughts please? Thanks

Roper Waher RAS6233KQQ Full of Water Wont Drain

10 February 2015 - 09:17 PM

My trusty washer has conked out mid cycle and is full of water. i've tried turning the timer on different settings and although I hear the timer clicking all I can get out of the washer is a hum, it won't drain, won't agitate, nada. Ready to troubleshoot Sensei.

GE Washer WCSR4170G1WW poor was quality

29 August 2014 - 09:55 PM

Lately this machine has been doing a poor job washing. It seems like when it comes time to agitate, it moves very slowly, is loud and clunky, something is definitely wrong. The entire drum seems to loose. Not familiar with how this works but working to figure out. Thanks in advance- I am ready to figure this one out too

DBXR463EG1WW Dryer Wont Start- switch stuck

29 August 2014 - 06:31 PM

So our DBXR463EG1WW dryer wouldn't start today. Wife twisted the start switch so much it pushed in and fell behind the bezel. I said no problem, pulled the cover reinstalled the switch, still no start. I checked the switch with am ohm meter and noticed it is sticking closed aka continuous when it supposed to be momentary. It has three wires, I jumped them together still no start. Everything was working fine two days ago now im scratching my head. Yes I have 220 coming into the machine but that and the switch is all ive checked so far.

What to do next O'gurus of appliantology? If overload or relay please me tin where located..... Thanks
Meant to say, if overload or something else, tell me where it it located....typo
