Parts may appear physically identical but could have different electrical ratings. .4. Therefore. ADJUSTMENT 4-1 COMPRESSOR 4-1-1 Role The compressor intakes low temperature and low pressure gas from the evaporator of the refrigerator and compresses this gas to high-temperature and high-pressure gas. If liquid such as oil or water enters the PTC. injury. Replace parts by part number and model number. the PTC allows current flow to both the start winding and main winding. (2) The PTC device generates heat during operation. fire. poor operation and contact may result. the PTC device will allow current to flow only to the main winding. the higher the resistance value. (2) The compressor is a single-phase induction motor. (2) The higher the temperature is. The PTC starter and OLP (overload protector) are attached to the outside of the compressor. refrigerant and oil will be expelled into the contact area.10 - . 4-1-3 Note for usage (1) Be careful not to allow over-voltage and over-current. (5) Always use the PTC designed for the compressor and make sure it is properly attached to the compressor. humidity. and soldering flux don’t contaminate the inside of the compressor. (4) If the exterior of the PTC is damaged. poor operation and noise may result. It then delivers the gas to the condenser. (5) When replacing the compressor. This same process will continue (3 to 5 times) when the compressor attempts to restart until the PTC device has cooled. (3) Use proper electric components appropriate to the particular compressor in your product. the resistance value may be altered. If the compressor gets wet (in the rain or a damp environment) and rust forms in the pin of the Hermetic Terminal. (2) Do not drop or handle carelessly. 4-2-2 Role of PTC-Starter (1) The PTC is attached to the sealed compressor and is used for starting the motor. fire. If the hermetic connector rusts out or fails. Durign the starting operation. probably resulting in smoke and fire. Since the compressor is manufactured to tolerances of 1 micron and is hermetically sealed in a dust and moisture-free environment. PTC materials may fail due to breakdown of their insulating capabilities. or possibly death. Using an incorrect part could result in damage to the product. Using an incorrect part could result in damage to the product. Replace parts by part number and model number. (2) The OLP will open because of the overcurrent condition. 4-2-6 Note for using the PTC-Starter (1) Be careful not to allow over-voltage and over-current. Parts may appear physically identical but could have different electrical ratings. (3) Keep away from any liquid. The correct OLP must be properly attached to prevent damage to the compressor. 4-2-5 Relation of PTC-Starter and OLP (1) If the compressor attempts to restart before the PTC device is cooled. it must be allowed to cool before the compressor can restart. These features are used as a starting device for the motor. 4-2 PTC-STARTER 4-2-1 Composition of PTC-Starter (1) PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient) is a no-contact semiconductor starting device which uses ceramic material consisting of BaTiO3. use extreme caution when repairing it. This can cause damage to the compressor and result in a no-start or hard-to-start condition. 4-1-2 Composition The compressor includes overload protection. be careful that dust.

8-2 PCB FUNCTION 8-2-1 Power Circuit The secondary part of the TRANSFORMER is composed of the power supply for the display. the BLDC FAN Motor drive (15. .5 V). When 385V or higher power is applied. The voltage for each part is as follows: PART VOLTAGE VA 1 115 Vac CE 3 12 Vdc CE 4 15. the relay drive (12 Vdc) and the MICOM and IC (5 Vdc). the inside elements are shortcircuited and broken. resulting in blowout of the fuse in order to protect the elements of the secondary part of the TRANSFORMER.5 Vdc CE 5 5V VA1 is a part for preventing over voltage and noise.28 - .

If changed. since calculating time by the IC1 may be changed.8-2-2 Oscillation Circuit This circuit generates the base clock for calculating time and the synchro clock for transmitting data from and to the inside logic elements of the IC1 (MICOM). During a normal operation. Be sure to use specified replacement parts. 8-2-3 Reset Circuit The RESET circuit allows all the functions to start at the initial conditions by initializing various parts. including the RAM inside the MICOM (IC1) when the power is initially supplied or the power supply to the MICOM is restored after a momentary power failure.29 - . LOW voltage is applied to the MICOM RESET terminal. the OSC1 SPEC will not work.
