upon putting a service tap and checking the charge it would run in a deep vacuum
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
i suspected a restriction ,but i have removed the filter drier and blew out system with nitrogen both direction and no apparent restriction exists
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 7 months ago

Running in a deep vacuum just makes it easier for the compressor to run. The the piston could be creating too much friction or possibly the overload relay is just weak. Pull the refrigerator forward and unplug the refrigerator. Remove the lower back access panel and locate your large black round compressor. There is a small plastic box attached to the side of the compressor with several wires going into it. This is your overload relay. Pull the overload relay off the compressor and shake it. If it rattles, then it needs to be replaced. If it doesn't rattle, then you likely have a bad compressor and you'll need to replace the compressor.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today and reply back here letting me know with a rating of 1-5 stars (5 being the best). If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.

i have already installed a hard start kit prior to opening system and new freon
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 7 months ago

OK then unfortunately that means you just have a bad compressor and need a new compressor.

this would cause overload to trip originally ? running in vacuum?
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 7 months ago

Yes.

what about erratic voltage supply?
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 7 months ago

voltage is going to vary because the compressor is overloading. I'm not sure what else to say -- I have given you your answer--you need to replace the compressor.
