How To Test the Overload Protector

Continued from page 1

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

The overload protector (labeled "B" below) is connected by two wires. One wire connects to the compressor relay (labeled "A") with a slip-on connector. Pull the connector firmly off of the relay terminal (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connector. Inspect the connector for corrosion. If the connector is corroded it should be replaced.
