AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM TESTS, INSPECTIONS, AND ADJUSTMENTS - CONTINUED
TEST PROCEDURE FOR ARC SUPPRESSOR IN AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM
N OT E
AC systems use pressure switches in order to protect AC system. Arc suppressors protect other electrical
components in AC system. Arc suppressors protect other electrical components in AC system. Arc suppres-
sors are applied in order to discharge electrical inductance when compressor disengages. Failure of arc sup-
pressor can affect reliability of pressure switch. Failure of arc suppressor may cause failure of pressure
Place multimeter in DIODE test mode.
Place red probe in red terminal (positive terminal) of multimeter.
Place black probe in black terminal (negative terminal) of multimeter.
Place red probe on Pin 2 of connector on arc suppressor. Place black probe on Pin 1 of connector.
Multimeter should display a value between 0.5 and 1.0 VDC.
Place red probe on Pin 1 of connector on arc suppressor. Place black probe on Pin 2 of connector on arc suppressor.
Multimeter should display OL.
If conditions listed in steps 5 and 7 do not exist, component should be considered faulty. Component will not provide
Replace component if component has failed.
