View Full Version : Soda Dispenser

07-06-2020, 11:36 PM
Hello everyone, I am not a professional, but I a was wondering if I could get your professional opinions. I have a small home soda dispenser. The compressor is not running. I have diagnosed the compressor is fried. Not only have I tested the 3 leads from the compressor with a multi-meter, but I also bought a supro unit that has a starting capacitor and thermal overload built in. My multimeter test readings told me the compressor was bad but figured it was worth the $10 that the supro was to try it out. Not to my surprise, the compressor did not start.

It is really difficult to get a refrigeration professional to help me. I have called numerous places but either they don't come to houses, or won't work on a soda machine. I am at my last resort.

I know changing compressors is best left to professionals, but I am wondering it is at all possible a job I can do. I know its 1/3 hp compressor.

I know when a compressor goes bad on a fridge, everyone says to throw it away and get a new one. But I just bought this (used) and it never worked since I got it and would hate to throw it away.

Any help or suggestion is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Perhaps if you find someone who does work on this equipment (like a Restaurant Supply) you could get it to them.
Check with the Manufacturer to see who services their equipment.
You need a good amount of equipment and supplies to change a compressor.

I advise you to ask this question to the manufacturer. Even if the warranty period has already expired, the technical support service should prompt you.
