It is most likely right beside the pressure gage. It will have wires coming out of it and probably and ajustment dial on the outside. If the picture above is yours you will probably have to remove the plastic cover. Not sure how to do it but should be just a couple screws.

I have a 95 isuzu holden rodeo. My a/c compressor is not getting power to it? I have changed the fuses and relays.Compressor works and blows cold air if i hard wire it? What could be my problem?

there are several switches that control the compressor
one is a low pressure switch that will stop the compressor if there is a gas leak
the next is a high pressure switch that will stop the compressor if the condenser fan stops or there is a blockage in the line after the compressor which results in too higher a pressure that will destroy the compressor
next there is a relay controlled by the thermostat that controls the compressor to cycle it when cabin temperature is reached
I suggest that you have an accredited ac specialist shop diagnose the problem as it can get costly

What could be the possible cause of an A/C compressor not disengaging on my 97 F150?

check that the thermostat in the evaporator box is working as it controls the ac clutch action. If it is not functioning correctly (or the relay that it controls is faulty) then it will continually read hot air and not cabin temperature.

5. Ice thickness sensor dirty or disconnected. Check ice thickness sensor probe.
6. Water distributor dirty. Remove and clean water distributor.
7. Inlet water valve leaks through during freeze cycle. Check water inlet valve.
8. Connected to hot water. Check for bleed through from missing check valve in building water supply.
9. Incomplete harvest. Check harvest system.
10.High pressure cut out opened. Check fan motor pressure control, check fan motor, check controller using test mode.
11. Fan motor pressure control open. Check fan pressure control.
12. Fan motor not turning. Check fan motor, check fan blade,check controller using test mode.
13.Water pump not pumping. Check pump motor,check controller using test mode.

15. Compressor not operating. check compressor contactor, check controller using test mode.
Check compressor start components, check PTCR resistance and temperature, check compressor voltage, check compressor windings.
16. Low refrigerant charge. Add some refrigerant and restart unit. If cycle time imporves, look for a leak.
17. Hot gas valve leaks through during freeze. Check hot gas valve for hot outlet during freeze.
18. Thermostatic expansion valve bulb loose. Check bulb.
19. Thermostatic expansion valve producing very low or high superheat. Check evaporator superheat, Change TXV if incorrect.

Hard starting does this model have an unloader

There are two types of unloaders used on IR compressors. One is oil pressure controlled, and second is manually activated for starting. According to the photo and model number provided, yours is manually operated. Follow air line from compressor to tank. The pilot valve (brass valve) between airline and tank is a multi-function component. There is a flip leaver or pull ring w/ hold that unloads the compressor by venting air thru small muffler. The valve also contains the check-valve holding pressure in the tank, a means of adjusting pressure and controlls throttle for engine. For easy start, flip leaver upright and start; to run, flip leaver to right angle of stem.

I have an ssr-epe250 and need to change the pressure setting from online @93 & offline @ 103 psi. i need 125 psi. i just changed the controller and cannot get back to operating specs i need.

controllers do not come setup for a specific compressor. you need to be able to get into the factory will then be able to change rated pressure, horsepower etc. look at the name plate to get rated pressure. once the rated pressure has been changed you will be able to set your operating pressure to 125 online and 115 or less offline

Compressor hangs up after a few minutes of operation. I have changed both capacitors

Does this occur at the same pressure each time? Maybe the pressure switch is mis-adjusted or defective. Does it restart at the same pressure each time? Does the motor seem hard to turn when the unit quits?. Does the compressor have an adequate level of oil?

Air pressure

Most compressors have a shut off switch that will cut it off at 100-150 psi depending on the make and model of the compressor. The only way to change it would be to install a different pressure switch or hard wire it (this is not recommended, over pressurizing can cause the tank to rupture)
