How to Check the Compressor Motor

Caution: Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs.

Before testing the compressor motor, unplug the freezer to avoid an electrical shock hazard. Also, if the compressor uses a capacitor, it may contain a lethal electrical charge. Do not touch the terminals until you have discharged the capacitor.

The compressor is accessed from the lower rear of the freezer. The compressor is labeled "A", the terminal box is located at the position labeled "B".

The compressor motor can be accessed by removing the terminal cover box. The cover is held on by tension or with a retaining clip.
