View Full Version : Airwell GC34RCC Problems

06-03-2017, 12:22 PM

I have an Airwell GC34RCC that has given up, firstly it has been getting noisier, as in a buzzing sound when the compressor starts up.

The other night night it was switched on however no cooling so i took a look. I noticed the Motor Starter Cap was blown apart, it looked quite violent. I checked everything out and replaced the cap, upon the contractor and fan engaging the new cap blew up and was extremely hot to touch.

During my tests i found the compressor has 2ohm resistance between Run ans Start wires and no resistance between Start, Run and Active, Common, Earth.

Any help much appreciated.
