Thanks for the question.
You can only use the 3n1 relay on fridges older than ten years.
Send me the model number i will find the proper relay for that model.
Well we have had this Freezer for over 17 years and got it 2nd hand. I suspect it is well over 20 years old.
Sears model Coldspot Frostless 15 Spacemaster Model no(NNN) NNN-NNNN Other info off the data plate:
Mfg's for Sears, Roebuck and Co. USA and Simpsons-Sears Limited Toronto, Ontario, Canada for Coldspot Parts and Services
115volts 60 cycles
Ref. F12 24 oz.
Heater watts 670
There is no longer the 'clicking' sound. It still does not get cold. It has been on for about 7 hours now and the inside temp went from 80F to 84F. I just shut it down. I suppose I can do a polarity check on the compressor to see if it is ok?
It takes 24 hours for a freezer to get back to normal and that all depends on how much food is in the freezer, heres that relay you are looking for.
Ok I will leave it on for 24hrs and see if it works. I suspect it will not. I had a thermometer in there and the temperature only went up. there is no food in there it was all taken out to defrost it. After it was defrosted it would not get cold. Never happemed before.
Should I check for continuity and shorts before I get 3-1 start kit?
What about these concerns:
1. Should I check for continuity and shorts ?
2. I've got the freezer running. I started a little late so my '24hr' doesn't end until this evening. There is no longer the 'clicking' sound. Is that good or bad?
3. I may need a little help installing the 3-1 (shipped, but not received) Not sure of the connections from the power source. I have two wires coming from the power source (Where the cord is connected.) One is Black and one is Red. Two hot wires?
4. The connections to the compressor look simple enough. They are marked (According to the wiring diagram) M-Relay; C-Overload and S-Capacitor
I really won't know for sure until the part get here.
Well the 24hr wait failed to get the freezer working.
I have attached the 3n1. I suppose I have to wait another 24. Not looking hopeful.
If the 3n1 doesn't work am I done?
Well. I believe it's shot! The temperature inside went up. 95deg. The compressor also hot a bit warm.
Any recommendation as to a quality brand freezer?
Thank you for your help.
The make you have is a good dependable one.
Thanks and god Bless.
