Question about Air Conditioners

1 Answer

Fuel oil level extremely low: possible problems?

Foolishly,I let my fuel level drop to about 50 litres and the system has cut out (warning light showing). I've ordered more fuel, but I would like to know if this is inherently bad for the boiler (with the likelihood of a possible blockage that will need expert attention), or whether the system should start up again when the fuel arrives.

Worried stiff!

After your fuel tank is refilled let it set if possible for solids to settle. In the line near the tank is a fuel filter. This fuel filter should be changed regularly, normally annually. The air must be vented from the fuel filter though vent screws located on top of fuel filter. Do not remove the screws completely as air will vent as they are loosened. At the burner oil pump is a vent to which you can slip on a 1/4 inch hose and direct into a container. On burner start up loosen the vent at the oil pump and observe oil going into container. When solid stream of oil is seen close the vent. The vent looks like a grease fitting on an auto.

follow these instructions: One problem that can occur is the nozzle for the burner sometimes becomes plugged if solid particles make their way to it under low oil conditions. If this becomes the case you should have a heating service tech change the nozzle and fuel filter. However try the venting procedure first. You just may be O.K.

Recently replaced fuel pump in 1999 Sebring jxi now the low fuel light goes on and off , it all worked perfectly fine till the pump replacement. Could it possibly be a ground wire not tight enough?


This kind of connections are plug in nothing to tight,but anyway re-check the connections but if everything looks fine,maybe when the the pump assy. was installed the fuel level assy. was damaged or the metal arm was bend and that's why the inaccuracy of the readings

I have caterpillar disel genretor of 456kva capacity,when i switch on generator within halfhour of running it's EXHAUST MANIFOLD AND TURBINE GETS RED HOT. i am not able to understand why gets red...


It is quite normal for the exhaust manifold and turbo to get very hot, especially when the engine is working hard running at high speed under load. Every time the mixture in the cylinder is ignited there is a small explosion producing a BIG flame and a lot of heat to push the piston down. A lot of this heat goes out the exhaust. During daylight it is usually not noticeable, but at night it will visibly glow up to a bright red.

In relation to the oil pressure dropping, providing the oil level is at the correct level, there may be a restriction in the gauze filter on the input of the oil pump due to sludge buildup. Once the engine warms up and the oil thins out, the oil pump can't work at maximum capacity. The drop in RPM could be caused by the turbo getting insufficient lubrication and cooling due to the low oil pressure reducing oil flow to the turbo causing it to not work at its optimum speed and efficiency and therefore through reduced air flow into the cylinders the engine would tend to loose speed especially when under high load. The drop in RPM could also be caused by a problem with fuel flow to the injector pump causing the engine to run lean which would not allow the engine to produce maximum power and also contribute to higher exhaust temperatures because the governor would have the throttle wide open to try and maintain the engine speed when the generator is required to produce maximum output.

York 3phase compressor tripping on low currant microprocessor.


If the unit is single phasing this is not good for the compressor. Does the system have a phase monitor? If not I would suggest you put one in to save thousands of dollars on the replacement of the compressor. How is the oil level? I ask because this are not to run themselves out of oil.

Sharp split system, cutting out


If this is running in A/C mode, then I bet you have a low refrigerant charge. The compressor is dropping out on low suction pressure if it's cutting in and out every 5-10 minutes or so. If it takes hours, then it's likely a different problem.

Reply back and I can help you (been in that business for over 30 years.).

3 year old Beckett AFG with Clean-Cut system. New inline filter new strainer, new nozzle, flame looks correct in pattern always. Flame does not sputter prior to shut-off. I did notice that when it shut off...


Called Beckett at 1-800-OIL-BURN and explained the problem. They told me that the solenoid on the oil pump (Clean Cut) was the cause. I purchased a new pump for $50 at the local plumbing supply and installed it. Problem solved.

¿ Oil heaters do not generate wattage. On the name plate for the unit it may give you an AMP draw. Multiply Amps times Volts to get wattage use when in operation.

COMPRESOR TROUBLESHOOTING


This is a typical symptom of having an A/C system low on freon if it cycles on and off when first turned on or very soon afterward. All types of A/C units for home and auto have a low pressure cut-out switch that will disengage the compressor when the freon level drops low enough to cause damage to the compressor. The unit needs recharging with the proper amount of freon to correct the problem. If it's an automobile A/C system and the freon level is okay, it could be a faulty compressor clutch or coil.
