# How do you check mega ohms on compressor?

252627 ###### 2011-03-01 17:25:36

Usually you check mega-ohms by reading the resistance between compressor shell and the windings. There should be a large amount of resistance which means the windings are not shorted to the compressor case or shell. Use a DVM (digital volt ohm meter) to check the resistance.

## Related Questions One mega-ohm is the equivalent of 1000000 ohms. Yes, and in kilo ohms and mega ohms M is a si siffix for mega. It means million. 20 mega-ohms is 20 million ohms.   Mega is 8 X 10^6 and Kilo is 8000 X 10^3. For every 3 you go down in powers you divide by 1000, so 8 Mega ohms is 8,000,000 ohms. 8,000 Kilo ohms or 0.008 Giga ohms. Ten mega ohm equals 10,000,000 ohms.  A Megohm is one million ohms. To convert ohms to Megohms, divide by one million. S = 1/R Where S = Conductance in Siemens R = Resistance in Ohms If R is in Mega Ohms, S will be in Micro Siemens Yes, one mega ohm is more than one kilo ohm. Mega means million, kilo means thousand. It is a stronger isolator, meaning that it leaves less current through. 1000 kilo (Thousand) Ohms is one mega Ohm or 1,000,000 ohms The answer is .047Megohms. 1kilo ohm is 1,000 ohms. 1mega ohm is 1,000,000 ohms. Just move the decimal over to convert. A mega ohm is 1 million Ohms and is variously shown as 1M, 1MOhm and 1MR 22Kiloohm is 22,000 ohms 22megohm is 22,000,000 ohms Kilo is a thousand meg/mega is a million 1 megohm is 0.1 gigaohm. 1 gigaohm is 1000 megaohm. 1 megohm = 1,000,000 ohms = 106 ohms. 1 gigaohm = 1,000,000,000 ohms =109 ohms. Ohms and volts are different things -- it's not possible to equate ohms to volts. To convert ohms to: microohms - multiply by a million milliohms - multiply by 1000 kilohms - divide by 1000 megohms - divide by a million A capital 'M' followed by the Greek symbol omega. Mega means million, so that would be 106 ohms. You can also write this as 1 x 106 ohms. A: CONTINUITY check is not used to ascertain ohms value but rather the connections   M ohm means "mega ohm". That is 106 = 1,000,000 ohms.
