Question about Franklin Industries Franklin Chef Ice Cube Machine FIM400
I am working on a Manitowoc QY1304A Ice Machine. It is 220v and the problem is the compressor will not start. I have checked the contactor and I have 220v on both sides. I did a resistance test on the PTCR and it is withhin tolerances. I checked at the compressor and I have 220v. The only thing I can think to do is replace the capacitor but I see no physical damage to it. It is not swollen or leaking. I tried testing it with a multi meter and the oms go up till they reach the top scale of the meter. If I short it it will charge again. I also checked the compressor for ground and found none. Check the compressor between the windings and they seem to add up fine. Please help, Joe
I'd think that the start capacitor is faulty and could be the problem.
