Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your problem today.
I am sending you a service manual and go to page 12 we will start there. I need to know if you have tools and a voltage meter?
Here is manual
You need to first pull it out from the wall so you can access the rear lower panel
Then unplug it from the wall until its time to plug back in
Check to see how hot the compressor is be careful it could be very hot and cause burn
If you have a laser temp gun use it to tell temp but if not then lets give it a few minutes to cool off. I am gonna send another sheet so you can test some of the pieces to the compressor.
Go to page 5 on service manual so we can test the capacitor. Be careful touching capacitor because it can still be charged with voltage you only want to tocuh it with the volt meter. But you need to pull the leads off of it first but one at a time and dont touch anything else metal with your other hand or you will ground out and get zapped
I can offer you phone assistance for this and it will make it much easier due to the steps that need to be done correctly
That is the evaporator fan and it wouldnt stop the compressor from working. You can do a simple test to see if it is working by plugging unit back in and open freezer door then push in on door switch the white piece on inside of door crease
Also the condensor fan should come on when you plug in to wall. If the condensor fan doesnt come on at all then you have a power issue
I need you to follow my trouble shooting steps or it will get confusing and your not gonna figure anything out.
Yes the condensor fan is the one down next to compressor and it should be on once you plug it in. The evap fan will speed up when you push in on the door switch but you need to hold it down for a few minutes and if it is runnning then its ok.
I suggest you use the phone support due to the danger of doing something wrong and arbitrarily testing parts.
Did you have any questions
The start relay needs to be checked. You need to take it off the compressor and shake and if it rattles then you need to change it. The start relay is the large white piece or black piece that is attached on the side of compressor.
