Rebuild domestic refrig compressors


Some fun info for the old dogs of us who did domestic refrigerator repair back in the day.


A guy here locally used to rebuild refrigerator compressors. He used a cutting torch.

Only thing he could not rebuild was a Frigidaire or Whirlpool rotary.

He would rewind bad windings windings, remake valve gaskets and rewind current relay winding to match a complete rewind of start and run winding of a stator.

He would weld the dome back on and sell it. 1/4 hp comp went for 40 bucks, 1/3 hp 45 to 55 bucks.


What blew my mind was he re built GE bread loaf comps with a condenser
and filter drier for 55 bucks.

Guy was a motor man by trade and just decided to rebuild domestic refrig compressors.
