Unplug the refrigerator and reinstall your relay. Then plug in the refrigerator and check across the two terminals for power. You can use a light to test across the terminals as follows: With a light bulb in a socket with two wires coming from it. Touch the two wires to the terminals that the main wires are connected to. The light should come on. If the light does not come on your have no power to the compressor.

Next locate the thermostat where you adjust the temperature. Behind the knob will be two wires connected to the thermostat. with the refrigerator unplugged connect the two wires together in some way. Plug in the refrigerator and if it starts and runs the thermostat must be replaced.

I hope you find this of some help. I am from the USA and am not familiar with Italian made products.

There might be a coolant leak or an air leak. check the seals on the doors. Also the evap coil has a heater in it and a timer to self defrost. The timer might be stuck or the coil is burnt out

Where's the ac relay located at in my 1999

the a/c relay is in the under hood battery junction box ( relay # 2 ) there is also a a/c clutch fuse in the same box ( mini fuse # 1 ) if your a/c does't work you may want to check the freon charge first--- the a/c clutch usually falls apart on fords & they **** on marking the fuse covers !!!!!!!

The house in which I live has an electricity line of 2 KW. Will it be sufficient for 1.5 ton AC? Other equipments in the house are: Refrigerator, Fans and tube lights.


Lets calculate your loads :
1. AC 1.5 ton (TR) = 1.5 KW
2. Refrigerator = 0.2 KW ( I guess)
3. Fans = 0.1 KW ( I guess)
4. Lights = 0.2 KW ( I guess)

Total : 2 kW.

Remember that your appliance need more power for starting.
Now you know the answer if all my guess is correct.

For best , You can use multimeter to take measurement on your appliances current draws.

Warm regards, Jay

How do you tell high side from low on ac unit.

On regular A/C units, the LOW PRESSURE Service Port is always located on the fatter line. the HIGH PRESSURE Service Port is the one on the skinnier line. On vehicle A/C systems using R134a refrigerant, beside the above difference, the service ports are also different from each other.
Always add refrigerant to an A/C unit thru the LOW PRESSURE (SUCTION) Service Port.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

We have GA18 atlas copco air compressor.The problem is the relif valve opensat 7.6bar.The air starts to blow off from the relif valve and the solenoid relif port.We just wanted to make sure if it is the...

Could be a number of problems, Faulty pressure switch or if it is controlled by an electronicon it could be a faulty k4 relay switch inside the controller. You could have a blocked separator or a faulty mpv valve. If the unit has an integral dryer that could be freezing up and i have had a problem with a load relay bleed off being blocked. If not it could be the unloader valve, One way to check if it is electrical rather than mechanical is to pull the plug to the solenoid while the problem is occurring, if it Carry's on blowing while the plug is off then it is mechanical.

Generator won't start & now starter will not shut off when it has power

I have seen this happen in cars- the problem is most likel the ignition unit -they do not spend a lot of money on them in production. So here is what is happening . When you are putting key in and out metal filings are being deposited inside unit- this is now causing a short and draining batteries. Start here.This happened with cars a few years ago and they were catching fire in driveways.Call dealer and get replacement ignition- should be cheap fix. Good luck.
