    Default refrigerator timer testing

    When ohming these timers, do they all check the same way numerically regardless of how the terminals are spaced?

    Is it always 1-4 for run 1-2 defrost heater? Where applicable, 1-3 timer motor?

    I watched a video of a timer being tested. My numbers are spaced a little differently, but if I turn the timer over and check it according to the terminals the video shows to check, it checks okay.

    Nope.
    Many are that way, odd few are not.
    Some also have a capacitor in the motor circuit so you can't ohm the motor.
