Hey guys couple questions from a green horn, went on a call for a portable beverage cooler, old one, owner said they loaded it up with beer and it ran for a while then stopped. I plugged it in,compressor did not start. This comp has an external overload, I have continuity across the overload terminals. I pulled the relay off the pecker head, and attached a test cord. Black to run , white to common, green to ground, also tried white to common, black to start, green to ground I applied voltage comp would not start. I checked continuity from each terminal to ground, zero continuity on all three. I checked continuity from terminal to terminal and there is continuity. OHM readings c-s= 2 ohm, c-r= 12 ohm, s-r= 13 ohm . I need help please?
Also is my test cord procedure correct?
