Running has a constant beat or rythim of the flame going out
I have run this for a while and found that some one has been playing with the compressor screws. I dont know where the compressor screws are soposto sit ( 1 1/2 turns for example). I have cleaned the tank and put new fuel filter in and still dose it. It sounds very rythmic all was at the same time. sounds like the flame gose out and then comes back and has to catch up with the fuel in the camber. I looked at the spark plug don't look bad but what could cause this to do it the same amount a time between times.

Maybe low in Freon, inefficient compressor or partially restricted. 1.) Check the Freon level and add Freon if needed., 2.) Check for leak and repair if any 3.) Change the dryer filter, pull a deep vacuum then charge the unit according to the manufacturer's recommendation. See the name plate for more info. Note: skip all the above if compressor found inefficient.
This is the first sign of the compressor starting to fail.The more wear a compressor experiences, or the closer it is to failing, the longer the system will need to run to cool the refrigerator down to the proper level. This long running time will lead to higher electricity bills than usual, which is one of the first signs that something may be wrong with your compressor.
Small refrigeration units like this one like to fail to cool by developing a small leak and slowly leaking refrigerant. THERMOSTAT FAILURE CHECK: A technician will check the thermostat using using a DMM (digital multimeter). But you can suspect the thermostat if you set the thermostat high and the compressor motor does not run, then set thermostat low, and the compressor motor also doesn't run - in other words, the thermostat is failing to start the refrigerator's refrigeration system no matter what its setting - an obvious failure of the thermostat. COMPRESSOR FAILURE CHECK: If the compressor is dying, you would hear the compressor running almost constantly, but not sounding quite right (uneven noise, clunking, tapping). REFRIGERANT LEAK CHECK: If you unit is low on refrigerant (due to a leak), the compressor motor will be running almost constantly, but it will sound Ok.
You have a bad ignitor or ignition system part. The system is designed that if the is a failure in the gas heating then the fan runs and doesnt shut of so you will call someone to fix it .They all do this.
If unit is running constantly, and not nearly as cold as it used to be, most likely a freon leak. Possibly a partially frozen over evap too. If evap is mostly clear except for about 5% of it, most probably a freon leak. Changing controls will probably not fix anything. Need to look into this a little deeper.
SOUNDS LIKE THE VALVES IN YOUR HEAD ARE NOT CLOSING ALL THE WAY. THEY ARE MOST LIKELY REED VALVES, THIN STRIPS OF METAL THAT OPEN AND CLOSE WHEN THE PISTON MOVES. MAKE SURE THEY ARE CLOSING ALL THE WAY (NOT CARBONED UP). DID YOU REMOVE THE HEAD AND DID YOU PUT BACK LIKE YOU FOUND IT. NOT TURNED OR FLIPPED OVER.
