Continuity testing does not necessarily predict the behavior of capacitors under load. If the filter still does
not operate properly after passing the continuity test, substitute a filter known to be good, and check RFI
Install the RFI filter as follows:
a. Position the filter housing (figure 5-3)
on the mounting plate and secure with
Connect wiring harness plugs, P10 and P11,
of the filter housing.
c. Insert filter into air conditioner opening, and position mounting plate on casing. Secure with eight screws
around edge of mounting plate.
Section IV. COMPRESSOR
The refrigeration compressor is a self-contained unit which incorporates a reciprocating compressor. a drive motor and a
lifetime charge of oil hermetically sealed into a dome-shaped steel housing. A resistance type crankcase heater is
mounted around the outside of the compressor housing near the base. The purpose of the crankcase heater is to prevent
migratiom of liquid refrigerant into the compressor in cold weather. Liquid refrigerant could mix with the oil, causing the
oil to be pumped throughout the system. Also, fluids are incompressible and would cause serious damage to the
compressor if permitted to enter it while operating.
