Question about Samsung Refrigerators
Hi, I have a Samsung Refrigerator M/N RF267AAR. It takes R134A.
Compressor # MK172D-R2U.
I need to know what type and weight oil does it take.
I screwed up and poured it all over the shop floor.
This link will take you to a parts suppliers compressor page where you can look up the part number and order information. Their toll-free number is at the top of the page.
If this doesn't help, post me back and I will do some more research to help resolve your issue.
If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.

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

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
