Make sure that your condenser fan is working. If your unit is water cooled make sure you have water flow.

Most people recommend replacing the motor capacitor in this situation, since a faulty cap will reduce the starting torque. But in my case the check valve was the culprit - there was too much back pressure on the head.

Im told my orphise on my a/c is clogged

if the orifice is clogged the a/c compressor should, with motor running, kick in when you turn on a/c. it will run for 30 to 45 seconds, pulling down engine VERY slightly but noticeable. then the high pressure switch will activate and compressor will stop. if its not completely clogged it will run loger, even a few mins and maybe start to cool a little. when pressure drops enough it will start again and should do same thing over & over. if compressor never starts running it may be a fuse or relay or low on freon. it has a low pressure cutoff also and will not operate under low press, just like high press. cutoff wont let it run with too much. so a cycling compressor that pulls engine down would be proof of clogged orifice

2000 mazda 626 4 cyl a/c problem - unit runs for 15- 20 min then compressor shuts down. If you shut car down for 20 - 30 min a/c function will resume

Might be time to get some r134a freon added. When the car sit's it will build up pressure and when the pump kicks on it looses the pressure and goes into safety mode to not burn up the pump. If you do it yourself get the dye and pag oil also with the freon. It is very tricky to do it yourself so follow instructions carefully. Then check with UV light to see if it's leaking.

Have you checked the high and low pressure switches on the unit? If you are cycling on and off, look at your pressure switches to see if they are opening during operation. Also, when was the last time you cleaned out the condensing unit coils with soap/degreaser and clean water?

My compressor runs and builds pressure but, with nothing touched all of a sudden does not produce the same amount of pressure as before, it will not run my printing machine. What should I check?

Does the compressor have enough CFM to run the printing machine. Will the compressor build up pressure and shut off if you close the discharge valve at the tank. Your printing machine may simply be using to much air. If the above items are not the case you may have a faulty check valve in the receiver tank or valves going bad in the LP or HP heads. The valves may also simply have carbon build up or dirt of some type not allowing the valves to seat properly. I would start at the check valve. One way to check the check valve is to see if you have air blowing from the bleed off line at the pressure switch all the time. Another way to check is loosen the fitting at the High Pressure head an see if you have air blowing continously. Caution do not remove the fitting at the head completely. If the check valve is bad you will have high pressure air blowing until the receiver tank is drained.

My GE portable a/c will cool when I first turn it on. The compressor kicks on and it cools fine, but after it runs a few minutes it kicks off and never cools again. The fan just runs. It does not appear...

I would say that if it starts cooling when it's turned on, then it has freon in it. Sounds more like it's kicking off on high head pressure, meaning the condenser is not getting cooled, head pressure builds up then a safety limit switch shuts it down to save the compressor from burning out.. Is there a condenser fan maybe not operating? or are the condenser coils clogged up with dirt?

Unit does not cool. Original unit was replaced because of defective compressor. Replacement unit worked in store but now does not cool and alternates blowing cool and warm air.

Is this a window unit? Sounds like the compressor may be cutting on and off. That would cause the alternating air temp you are feeling. Make sure the condenser fan is running. If it isn't running head pressure will build up on the compressor until it shuts down. Then the pressure will equalize and the compressor will kick on again. Also check your filters and the condenser coil to make sure it is clean. Let me know what you find.

Have a husky 19 gal 1.5hp it kicks on when first start to work and when it builds up air and i use it and when it wants to kick back on it wont i have to wait till it cools down.

Is there an option for you to run this compressor on 220 volts vs 110 volts??? If so, you may want to convert it by following the re-wire instructions on the motor or wire access plate/instuction book. The reason your compressor won't fire up again after building pressure is the head pressure is to great at restart and 110 household current is not enough to give the power needed to turn the piston. You'll need to replace the plug and have someone run a 220 volt circuit once the conversion is completed.

Ice cube cycle time very high

i suspect a defective liquid line or pump down seleonid coil. just make sure you hear the "click" when it starts up if not the selenoid coils could be defective. also verify that the condenser fan is running,because if not you are short-cycling on high head pressure. please contact if you need any additional info
