    Pull the unit out and check to the back coil fro the fan blade side to see if the coils are clean! The blown overloads tells , its pulling too many amps and not operating at manufacture specs. If the coils are plugged ,it can't get rid of enough heat and the compressor protects it self from overheatings!

    Then the only problem is a back dirty coils. (not the front coil.) The fan blade area..!

My islandaire ptac keeps tripping the breaker what should i look at?


If it were me I would use an amp meter and take an amp reading of the compressor when it is fully loaded. then I would refer to my name plat. which should be located on unit or if you can read label on compressor that is even better. FLA is fully loaded amps. RLA is running load amps, and LRA is locked rotor amps. if your amp readings is close to LRA or higher than FLA then I would recommend changing your compressor, The last thing you want is a compressor burn out.

My unit is interrupting the startup and burning the 220 breaker, any thougths?


I would say it sounds like the compressor shorted or one of the three wires is/are grounding out. This should trip the breaker not melt/burn it. The other option is that the condenser fan is not coming on thus causing the compressor to overload and toasting the breaker. I am assuming that you have a 30/40 amp breaker. Once you install a new breaker the turn the unit on and see if the outside fan is working and is the compressor is running. Hope this helps tim

Will not switch to cool mode. heat and fan work fine


hi,
regarding on switch mode theres a common line between heating and cooling although fan is always connect on them.,also with the thermostat,the sequence on this when you switch to cooling and your connection is on heater,the contactor will shift to compressor source,so if there is no cooling, the contactor supplying the compressor is not functioning when you switch on cool mode.try to tighten screw on compressor relay maybe only loose.on control panel,or check continuity of compressor if the compressor still good,check also the freon charge using clamp ammeter,this should be done by ac technician.have a nice day
rate me up,thank's

Motor will not start


I had the same problem and the solution was to manually press the thermal overload button. The button is located under the tool box next the motor head. I do not believe I tripped the thermal overload during use, but I suppose anything is possible. I’ve been using the compressor in sub 40 deg F. temperatures. I found the following in the Owner’s Manual, but had to look at the part manual to locate the switch.
MOTOR THERMAL OVERLOAD
PROTECTOR: The electric motor
has a manual thermal overload
protector. If the motor overheats
for any reason, the thermal
overload protector will shut off
the motor. Turn pressure switch
to the “off” position and wait for
unit to cool before pushing the
reset button and restarting the
compressor.

Good Luck!

Air conditioner keeps tripping breaker replaced the termostat do you think the compressor is gone its only 6 years old.


Every air conditioner has a motor called a compressor. The compressor provides the cooling capacity for the air conditioner. If the compressor or its electrical controls are defective the compressor may try to start, fail, and create an electrical overload. If the unit does create an overload, every compressor circuit is also equipped with an overload safety switch. The safety switch is designed to protect the compressor from burning out. The safety switch will cut the power to the compressor for a certain length of time and then reset itself. When it resets it will allow the electricity to flow to the compressor once again. If the compressor then starts, the unit should function normally. If the compressor doesn't start when the overload resets, the overload will again cut the electricity to the compressor. This cycle will continue indefinitely. (Always allow three to five minutes before restarting the compressor.) If this situation is occurring, unplug the air conditioner and get help from a qualified repair technician. This problem is often fatal to the air conditioner because the cost of repair often exceeds the price of a new air conditioner.

if this helps please vote me a fix ya

Help w/ Refrigerator Compressor Overheating?


I had a similar problem yesterday (Maytag side by side unit 5 years old, however this apply to most brands). All operation seems normal other then that the refrigerator was not cooling, the air that was blowing inside the refrigerator was room temperature and not cold air. The compressor was also very hot to touch (could not touch it for more then 1-2 seconds) and didn't buzz or hum as in standard operation. I also heard few clicks from the compressor every time I plugged / unplugged the AC to the fridge. Replaced the overload/ relay device with a new one I got at a local appliance parts distributor ($30) and MAGIC. The unit went back to work as soon as I plugged the AC power. The relay/overload unit is on the side of the compressor and that?s where the electric wires are attached to. The unit turns the compressor on and off. The unit is attached to the compressor side with an "electric outlet" like three holes and three prongs. It might be held tight so you can pry gently (between the unit and the compressor body) with a screwdriver. Once pulled out, release the wires connectors that are attached to the relay/ overload unit. You might need to use pliers as they are tight fit. If unit smells like burnt or if you shake and hear rattle then it?s bad. Find a local appliance parts distributors and call to see if they have part for your model/ type. Remember to unplug AC before starting to work on the fridge and good luck.
