I picked up an old upright Gibson Freezer Model FV13M3WDFD the other day used (probably 5 - 10 years old I would guess), and of course, I took the guy at his word that it was working the last time he plugged it in. He claimed that time was only about 2 months ago. I take it back to my garage and plug it in and of course, it doesn't work. I would like to fix it, but I am not looking to replace the entire compressor.
When I plug it in, I can hear an audible 'click' from around the compressor which I am assuming is some relay switching, then a very VERY quiet buzzing sound, then another click (like a relay clicking off). I like tinkering with things and figuring out what is wrong, but electrical and compressors are new territory for me. Any ideas on what could be going on or better yet, how to fix it?
