GE GTR11AAPARWW
« on: March 05, 2013, 06:41:22 PM »
Intermittant cooling. Replaced all the sensors, worked for a bit, then found the compressor not running with power to the compressor.  Replaced the compressor today, compressor runs at 1.0-0.9a, suction press 3#, discharge press 125# runs the condenser and evap fans constantly.  After replacing the compressor, I had the freezer at about -15 then later in the day it was at 30, fans running. Any ideas?

Hmm. With a manual thermostat? Is this located in a garage? What was fresh food temp when freezer was 30? :D

Right now its in the shop, ambient about 70-75.  This unit has the motherboard and temp sensors in each compartment. Yes a manual thermostat.  I believe the ff compartment was at about almost 60.

Good ambient temp. Could the unit be getting stuck in defrost and not coming back out to cool? Is the power sitting there while not running AFTER comp replacement? :D

Im considering jumping line to compressor on the motherboard and letting it run to see what it does.  Its been close to ten years since Ive touched a residential refer, so Im guessing that since you havent mentioned the suction and discharge pressures, that those are good. I dont have any tech info on this unit so im kinda flying blind here, Any ideas on where to get a tech manual on this refer?
