GE GDSL3KCYCLLS.
No refrigerator or freezer cooling. Compressor is hot and it is running for less than a minute.
Is the winding is burned? Resistance of the windings is about 9 ohm.

The compressor has start windings and run windings. Here's how to check them:

Check the start device on the compressor:

Here's the compressor start relay for your model:

Rick,

Very good. Great details. My readings for the compressor confirm the spec. I had 9.5 ohm and 5.2 ohm. I don't think I had any reading on the relay. I don't remember now. Anyway, just replaced the relay and I think my refrigerator is back in business - no frequent switching sounds anymore and cooling air coming out both of the compartments - freezer and refrigerator.

Thanks. I wish I knew about existence of this blog before.
