Air compressor will not start.


When you are texturing walls you need a texture machine, they work very differently from an air compressor. An air compressor, especially one as small as the Central Pneumatic 40400 cannot supply the constant flow of air required by texture guns. If your compressor was running long enough to get hot enough to smell it then stopped working some of the possibilities are:
- Popped a circuit breaker, either the house breaker for the outlet you were using or the breaker on the compressor motor. This usually occurs because the compressor is being run on a too small guage or too long extension cord or run constantly for an extended period.
- Motor got overheated and seized up or shorted out. This could be as simple as a bearing seizing or as bad as the coils in the arnature shorted out.
- Pump may have seized up. Even if the sight glass shows the crankcase is full, the condition of the oil and its ability to lubricate are greatly affected if it is overheated.

try bleeding the radiators in the order of downstairs first and then the upstairs and try to bleed them in the order they fill, trapped air can take a while to escape, a good sign on a radiator is the bottoms being warm where the tops( where the air is trapped) stays cooler, a sure sign to which radiator needs bleedin, hope this helps, colin

Heat gauge shows hot , have to add antifreeze although no leak


Very common fault is head gaskets.  causing coolant consumption and bubbles in radiator.  Run vehicle, have a friend accelerate once or twice hard, while you smell exhaust for sweet smell of burning coolant.

COMBI BOILER /CENTRAL HEATING


the boiler should modulate to controll the radiator temperature but the central heating will go off whilst you are drawing hot water

Honeywell ST6400C programmer doesn't switch off


Since you have three on/off timing modes could there be an overlap in the times?
The wires in the unit might be crossed. (don't always assume the contractor who wired maintained the correct colors , I have a friend who blew out a heating pipe because when a replacement motor valve was installed it was never wired right and the plumber assumed the colors were correct so no overtemp shutoff created steam in PVC pipes, OPPS)
There fore maybe one is still coming on. Do you have more than one heating zone? IF so see below

I guess the main question is why manually turn it off? why not use the program.

I will assume your heat is know as forced hot water heating. My house is multizoned however when the zone calling for heat turns off (zone valve closes) I installed a bypass valve in the lowest zone in the house, and reduced the circulator low shut off temp to 130 F which means even though the heat isn't on my circulator will continue to run dumping this excess heat in the lowest part of house to rise through house. (the spring loaded water valve allows the heated water to flow into this zone )We do have two thermistats. And even though the lowest one is not calling for heat the radiators are hot when the excess is dumped into this zone. So investigate and see if your system might be similar. (multizone).

Investigate your wiring, reprogram, replace any battery backup.
