SOURCE: type of oil

Air compressor pumps can use different grades of oil depending on weather conditions and usage, however do not use engine oil. Some Ingersol Rand pumps use a synthetic oil available through WWGrainger on the web. (generally not model specific) If this pump is lightly used you can use the less expensive compressor oil sold at Lowes lumber made by Campbel Hausfeld. It sells for less than $3.00 a bottle. Generally speaking, under normal weather conditions and light duty use, do not worry about the weight of the oil; just make sure that it stays clean and at the right level. If your compressor is running hot, it may be due to other problems like the check valve, head gaskets leaking between cylinders or chambers or high usage. If, however you just want the best oil for your compressor, use the synthetic. It is usually colored blue or green. This oil is special formulation to prevent breakdown in high heat and will not allow carbon for form on parts or inside of the hoses. enjoy

SOURCE: ROTARY SCREW COMPRESSOR TRIPPING

Possibly water in the air tank ? Or Ice covering the inlet or screen into the tank? DOes it have a belt? or direct drive? Remove the belt and try to turn by hand. See if its the motor or the compressor is tight. If it rolls free possible a chack valve is hung up or has a broken spring OR yuo have a bad capicator or centrifical sw going to the start capicator. Check amp draw with no pressure on the compressor. tank open. If it runs extra time its somethign while under load. If it still cuts out you need to sepperate and discover if its a mechanical or electrical problem.
HOPE THIS HELPS PLEASE RATE ME ACCORDINGLY AND GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: neff fridge, compressor makes nasty noise,

Hey there you need to check the motor/compressor PTC start relay which is located on the side of the compressor under the plastic terminal cover, it's mounted on start and run winding pins the third pin is the incoming phase which has a overload connected to it .if this relay stays shorted or doesn't conduct to power the start winding the motor/compressor wont start. also if there's a motor start capacitor test that. tell me how you get on as i have more solutions if that doesn't help.

Please rate my advice too

cheers

Not cooling


it could be a thermostat or it could be the relay on the back of the fridge. the relay on the compressor may be bad. pull the fridge out and see if you can feel the compressor. and see if it is hot and if the fan is blowing... if not replace the relay.

Will there be a problem if my R12 freon was changed to 134A without changing any of the components in my airconditioning?


yes the oil will be your problem and r134a is 25% harder on condensing and you may get a bit of flood back to compressor

DO NOT PUT R134A WITH OUT OIL CHANGE

I am not a refrigerator repairman but I do know that most times the oil for the compressor, which runs with the "freon" is stored at the bottom. Moving it from side to side could mess up the oil needed for the compressor. If you do that again, I think you should unplug it and then let it sit idle for a little while for the oil to drain back into the reserve.
Maybe someone else can give you better advice. It might get back to normal but I would go easy on it for a while if it were me.

it is the same refrigerant however the car industry and the refrigeration industries purity standards ARE NOT the same!! as a rule refrigerant manufactured under the refer standard can be used for auto but not the reverse, you can use it but be forewarned chances are you will be replacing the compressor due to an electrical burn out
