My fan runs and have power to compressor, but compressor only stays on for couple of seconds. I couldn't get a ohms reading coming off the two prongs on the compressor starting device. Am I checking the right things?
Thanks

Hi.

Unplug the unit.
Remove the start components from the compressor and check continuity between 3 compressor's prongs and to the ground.
If there is continuity between the prongs and non to the ground - replace the starting devise

Part number: 2319792

Part number: 2319792


Make sure that the compressor is cooled down and condenser coils are clean.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Unit parts for Whirlpool KSRT25CRBL01 - AppliancePartsPros.com

Post the results.

Simon.

I have continuity between the 3 prongs(female). Also, checked from those prongs to the ground wire that goes to compressor in that area. Is that right?
Had no continuity to ground.

Hi.

It's the male prongs. Replace the start devise.

It's very important what you and I call "the male prongs".
It's the 3 prongs on the compressor it self.
If there is no continuity between those prongs - then you need a new compressor.

Newbie to this, so I appreciate your patience.
Resistance between 3 prongs on compressor is in 4.26 range.
Resistance between 3 prongs on compressor and ground is in 3.5 range.

You have continuity from the compressor's pin to the "ground"? Check to any copper tube from any of the three pins.
