In Topic: Help with my Soda Machine Fridgeration

Ok.  Well I hooked it up to a regular wall outlet and both fans kicked right on! :rocker:

Now I have to figure out if it is getting cold ie and to charge it with freon. 

my father inlaw has the line for charging but I think I need to know what type of freon to put in. 

Any suggestions? 

THANK YOU ALL AGAIN FOR YOUR HELP!! 

Trying to find what else I can fix so I can keep posting. 

Tony  :thanks:

No connection from the pins to the case. I may be able to borrow mega ohm meter from someone at work today.

Compressor seemed to ohm out good. I think (if I was doing it right) my ohms from common to start then common to run added up to what I had from start to run.  wiring rest up now wish me luck.   :tinkerbell:

do not use anything you have there

get a 3-1 starter and wire according to instructions that come with it

3-1 will have 5 wires , 3 of them just plug right on to the 3 pins in your compressor with the pre installed connectors
the 2 bare black wires are just power , connect them to the power cord along with the condenser fan motor leads
it's just that easy

when your shopping for one you want one that will work with the horse power(HP) of the compressor you have, in your case you have a 1/3HP compressor , there is a 3-1 that works with 1/4 -1/3HP compressors , that's the one you should buy

Hello Again, 

Well my 3-1 start came today.. So this is my question from your instructions. 

____

With the blacks from the 3-1 that are not pre-pinned.

I connected one black from the 3-1 to one black from the fan on the condenser and one black one the compressor. Then 

I connected other black from the 3-1 to other black from the fan on the condenser and the other black on the compressor.

I have a cord coming from the (looks like thermostat) has a white and black and ground. 

NOT SURE WHAT TO DO WITH THOSE?  :whistling:

 

Thanks again for all your help.. ALL OF YOU!!  :thumbsup:

Tony
