I recently picked up a GE Hotspring that was replaced by another GE Hotspring. It was replaced because the neighborhood suffered a surge during a lightning storm and the control panel fried on the one that I picked up.
I tested the compressor's continuity and that checks out fine. Now I want to test run the compressor by hot wiring it.
The compressor has three terminals; R S C. I'll guess that it's Run Start and Common ? What would be a procedure to do a test run. If my terminal labeling is correct, I imagine that connecting to C and S will get it going. Correct ?
