    Huh, I was told those would only work on fractional hp compressors. Wrong or right?

    It looks like the modern day analyzers are good for 25 -30 running amps (and the A12 was good for 3HP to possibly 5HP (with risk)

    ...and the Annie II A2-12 was listed at up to 25 amps for a maximum of 2 minutes....

    Speaking of Hermetic Compressor Analyzers -

    I have an Annie A-12 and a Gemline TA-1200.

    Does anybody know where I can get either or both operating manuals?

    I also have an "Annie" I was confused about the various colored wires. So I marked them with a black felt pen.

    Green = ground
    Black = Common
    Red = Run
    White = Start

    I hope this helps. Stan H

    Yes I typed this 2, 3 fingers at a time. OLE!

    The following data is applicable to the ANNIE A12X Export 220-250 Volt-60 Cycle Model.

    SECTION A – METER OPERATION


    Ohmmeter

    1. Make sure the Analyzer is unplugged and Ammeter Switch is off, Ammeter operates on “D” cell battery.
    2. Move #hmmeter Switch to ohms position.
    3. Clip Red & Black leads together, turn Master Switch on, needle will move to about zero. Adjust to zero Ohms with control inside chord pocket. If meter will not zero, replace battery.
    4. Use Red & Black leads to identify winding terminals. Highest Ohms is from Start to & Run terminal.Terminal left is Common. Reading from Common highest is Start. The remaining terminal with lowest reading is Run.

    Voltmeter

    1. Disconnect Analyzer from external power source.
    2. Put Ammeter Switch to “Hi” position.
    3. Put Ohmmeter Switch in “Power” position.
    4. Put Voltmeter Switch in “Line” position.
    5. Turn Master Switch “Off”.
    6. Isolate Black, Red, White and Yellow from each other and earth.
    7. Connect power supply chord of Analyzer to "coltage connection to be read.
    8. The "voltage indicated on the Voltmeter is the line "voltage supplied to the Analyzer.

    Ammeter

    1. Disconnect Analyzer from external power source.
    2. Put Ohmmeter switch in “Power” position.
    3. Put Ammeter switch to “Off” position.
    4. Put Master Switch in “On” position.
    5. Connect the apparatus under test to the Red and Black leads. Isolate the Yellow and White leads from each other and ground.
    6. Connect the Analyzer to a power supply of the correct "voltage for the apparatus being tested.
    7. Put Ammeter Switch to “Hi” position, read up to 25A apparatus being tested. After apparatus has started switch to “Lo” position, if current draw on the ammeter is under"5A"
    8. If line "voltage is desired while measuring amperage, place voltmeter switch in the “Line”position.


    Section B - HOW TO CHECK A HERMITICALLY SEALED UNIT

    1. Remove all external wiring from the terminals of the sealed unit.
    2. Connect the Red Lead to the Run Terminal. White Lead to Start Terminal, Black Lead to the Common Terminal, and the
    Yellow lead to the solidly Frame.
    3. Make certain Master Switch; Ammeter Switch and Voltmeter Switch are off. DO NOT CONNECT ANALYZER TO EXTERNAL
    POWER.
    4. Put Ohmmeter Switch in “OHMS” position and press Start Button. If resistance is indicated (movement of ohmmeter)
    the windings are shorted to the frame.Replace unit if this condition exists.
    5. Put Master Switch in “On” to check resistance of Run winding. “Reverse” position checks resistance of Start windings.
    Replace unit if windings are open or earthed.


    Section C - HOW TO START A HERMITICALY SEALED UNIT

    1. Remove Yellow Lead from frame and isolate it from earth.
    2. Put “Ammeter” Switch to ‘Hi” position.
    3. Put “Ohmmeter” Switch to “Power” position.
    4. Put Master Switch in “Off” position.
    5. Put Capacitor Selection Switch in proper range (see selection G)
    6. Connect Analyzer to power supply of correct voltage for the compressor. Power Light will come on when the Analyzer is energized. If no light or a very dull glow of Power Light check fuse in chord pocket. Replace if necessary. Line Voltage can be read by putting Voltage Switch in line position.
    7. Hold Start Button “IN” put Master Switch “ON” position.
    8. Release button when units starts.
    9. Turn Master Switch off if unit fails to start in 3 seconds.
    10.If unit operated satisfactorily the trouble is with the capacitor, relay, control, overload or other external wiring.
    11.Put Ammeter Switch and Voltmeter Switch to desired ranges for further tests. These tests include low voltage or high current draws, those that are above rated amperage. If unit fails to start it is stuck, see section D. Disregard capacitor and relay bulbs while making this test.


    Section D - HOW TO REVERSE A STUCK OR FROZEN UNIT

    1. Proceed as outlined in Section C, steps one and two.
    2. Holding start button in, quickly move Master Switch between “On” and “Reverse” position several times. If unit starts let
    it run for approximately a minute then turn it off.
    3. Try to start the unit as outlined in Section C, Step 3. If unit now fails to start it is beyond help and must be replaced.

    IF FUSE BLOWS WAIT FIVE MINUTES AND REPLACE THE FUSE INSIDE CORD POCKET

    Section E - How To Test Capacitors

    1. Make sure Master Switch and Ammeter Switch are off. Put Ohmmeter in Power position.
    2. Disconnect Capacitor form all external wiring including bleed resistors.
    3. Discharge Capacitor with light bulb or bleed resistor so as not to blow fuse on internally fused capacitors.
    4. Connect Black and Yellow Leads to Capacitor terminals.
    5. Connect tester to power source.
    6. Place Ammeter Switch in “Hi” position and note reaction of light.
    a. If light goes on then out the capacitor has taken a charge. New capacitors may keep the light glowing for few minutes
    b. If no light the capacitor is open.
    c. If light stays on then the capacitor is shorted.
    d. If light decreases but does not go out the capacitor is leaking.
    7. When light goes out, press capacity button for mFd reading of start capacitors. (Do not press button if light remains on
    indicating a shorted capacitor) Discard capacitors that vary 20% from rating. For small start and run use “LO” range on
    Ammeter.
    8. (Optional) The Analyzer can be left on the job as an emergency substitute capacitor. Connect the Yellow and White
    Leads to the leads that normally go from the systems wiring to the capacitor DO NOT PLUG THE ANALYZER IN, put
    Master Switch on and set Capacitor Switch mFd needed. All other switches should be left off or in the center position.


    SECTION F - TO TEST POTENTIAL RELAYS ONLY

    1. Make sure Master Switch, Ammeter Switch, and Voltmeter Switch are off.
    2. Put Ohmmeter Switch in relay position.
    3. Turn volts control all the way down (counter clockwise)
    4. Connect White Lead to relay terminal #1, Black Lead to #2, and the Red Lead to #3.
    5. CONNECT ANALYZER TO 230 VOLT POWER SOURCE.
    6. Turn Master Switch “ON” and set Voltmeter Switch to relay position. Relay light must come on. If no light points are
    open, replace relay.
    7. Increase volts until relay “picks up”. Make a note of the voltage before “pick up”. This indicates the “pick up” voltage.
    If light remains on, points are frozen and relay must be replaced. If relay does not “pick up” at maximum rated volts,
    the coil is bad and the relay must be replaced.
    8. Decrease voltage until relay “drops out”. Make a note of voltage just before “drop out”. This indicates “drop out” volts.
    Light must come back on when replay drops out. If Light remains on the points are frozen or sticky and relay must be
    replaced.
    9. Compare pick up and drop out voltages with the information supplied by the relay manufacturer.


    SECTION G - 240 VOLT CAPACITOR INFORMATION

    1. Units up to 2 hp use 25-80 mFd range.
    2. Units of 1-1 hp use 85-145 mFd range.
    3. Units over 1 hp use 150-200 mFd range.

    SECTION H - RELAY WIRING INFORMATION

    1. G.E. Relay
    a. Lead from post #1 goes to “Start”
    b. Lead from post #3 goes to “Run”
    c. Other post is “Common”

    2. Delco Relay
    a. Lead from post #S goes to “Start”
    b. Lead from post #M goes to “Run”
    c. Other post is “Common”

    Annie A-12

    Hi Greg.

    Any chance you still have a copy of the Annie A-12 manual? You'd be my today's hero if you could shoot me a copy to admin at margaritaguys dot com.

    Thanks

    Jeff

    Jeffsmg,

    next time try reading forum and maybe you'll find that I wrote it. Greg doesn't have manual.
