Topics I've Started

Kenmore 253.60721002 refrigerator runs but won't cool

19 February 2013 - 10:32 AM

Kenmore 253.60721002 runs but won't cool


Startup amps: 6.5

Running amps: 1.1

(LRA on this compressor is 10.5 amps)


Start to Run: 28 ohms

Start to Common: 20 ohms

Run to Common: 9 ohms


Tested terminals to ground and none are grounded

Klixon overload is not open

Current relay tests ok



Compressor and discharge line feel warm to the touch but not excessively hot. 


From my limited knowledge, the compressor ohm readings seem real high.  Is the compressor shot?





Kenmore 110.72802101 dryer

Kenmore 110.72802101

motor turns

ohm check shows hi limit thermostat, thermal cutoff, operating thermostat, and thermal fuse all have continuity

can see glow of ignitor for several seconds then goes out

main solenoid coil and valve coil both indicate proper resistance between terminals

flame sensor reads .5 ohms, tried to get it to open by lighting a lighter in front of the flame but the reading didn't change

according to the wiring diagram do I conclude that the flame sensor is bad which is not opening the main gas valve?
