T M I ! (too much information) The outside unit , remove the cover to look at the litle round can to see if it exploded, got a buldge from flat on the top or bottom of it or just swollen on the top or bottom. If ok then check the wires on the compressor to see if they all have a good connections. If not the fan or the compressor don,t work then check to see if you have 240 volts to the contactor, or 24 volts to close the contactor.! thank-you-very-much!

Is the external overload connect to the nurture line can protect the compressor?

if your compressor is shorted to ground then you need a new compressor. if you need help finding what compressor part# you need let me know. The external overload is there to protect the compressor from overheating, but if it doesnt work there is no protection causing compressor to possibly short to ground.

My air compressor started making a funny noise from the motor, and it doesn't build up air as fast as it used to. what do you think happened?

the compressor itself has 2 reed valves in works on suction pressure and the other from the pressure generated from the compression stroke of the comp motor.If the valves are weak, they may still work for awhile. The compressor for an air compressor is what is known as an open compressor or semi hermatic. Just means it can be worked on. Those valves are replaceable and much cheaper than a new compressor.

Compressor and Compressor Fan Not Working

Rotate the dial on the defrost thermostat, a big click is when it goes into defrost, a little more and it should turn the compressor back on. By overload protector, do you mean the one under the compressor cover?

Compressor not working

Why did you change the mother board? Was the compressor working before the change? If it was, then you need to check the new board and see if there were any wires that need to be cut when it was installed. If it wasn't running before the board change then you might try the overload on the compressor first. Also it should be checked with a compressor checker to determine if the comp is at fault or not

Compressor will not work

  • it may be the compressor, check the temperature of the compressor when it has been running for a while. if it is too hot to touch then it is going bad. the compressor should only get warm not hot.
  • the start switch will also kick out if the compressor is drawing too much amps (even if cold) witch would also be a sign of a bad compressor.
  • another thing that could cause this problem is if the coils under the machine are dirty or the airflow is blocked. this will cause the heat to build up in the compressor and kick the start switch off.
  • compressors don't last as long as they used to.
