How to test inverter board or compressor
« on: August 08, 2014, 10:58:25 AM »
I have a refrigerator, model # GSH22JSXLS and the compressor is not running. How can I test the compressor to see whether the problem is the inverter board or the compressor itself.

Ohm the compressor all reading should be the same. See if you have voltage out of the inverter board.

You can't check voltage out of the inverter. You can ohm the compressor. All 3 windings should be the same. Check for 120v input voltage to the inverter. Your control input (small wires I believe is 8-12v) if the compressor ohms good, and you have your input voltages to the inverter than your inverter is bad

Inspect the inverter board for burn marks. I'm seeing a lot of these that evidence of overheating. Usually caused by a clogged condenser coil.
