    Default Lg start relay

    Lg fridge start relay reads 000 resistance. Calls for around 10 ohms. Is it bad?

    Hey Rick,

    Compressor clicking on and off?
    Compressor not running at all?

    Probably no. Unless we have a really accurate meter, 10 may just scale the same as zero (0).

    The compressor and fan do not ckick on and off for the short time I have them running, but do seem to run at half power. Fan (new) seems to run slow and compressor barely makes a noise, almost have to put hand on it to feel a little vibration to make sure it is on.
    This is the same one I posted about earlier and was told I needed to check refrigerant.
    Just curious if low refrigerant would also affect the fan speed. Unless a leak is accessable, I would not wasye time putting refrigerant in it.
    I do know the run capacitor does not check to be good.
    I do intend to scrap it since I have already done away with most of the shelving.
    Just curious in case I run into this again.

    A system issue would certainly allow the compressor to not work hard and just kinda free wheel.

    Not that I am aware of no.
    Only thing that *might* happen is an electronic board is sensing the compressor is not working hard so it is not drawing it's normal current and this board is telling the fan to run at a lower speed.

    One last question. Would the bad Run capacitor on thr electronic board cause this.
    Sorry, still curious about this capacitor since it is a Run capacitor and checks to be faulty.

    A system leak, no.
    A system issue, no.
    A fan not running correctly, possible.

    Sorry, should have been more specific. I meant would the bad run capacitor on the board cause the fan AND compressor to run slow. Like maybe both are running in start mode only, I guess.

    One cap on the board, I am gonna say no. If a compressor was stuck in start mode it would be drawing high current/amps instead of drawing next to none and running quiet like a compressor will do with a system issue.
