SOURCE: AC Control Transformer keeps failing.

well it has blown the fuse on the transformer, then you have coil switch bad.It could be the coil on the contath in for cooling.But can check by taking the yellow wire a loose and see if the don't blow. The red wire is one side of the transformer and the com could be any color.But look at the red wire because it is the main wire that travel the voltage throuhg the unit.

SOURCE: I replaced the contactor and the unit still doesn't work

Are you getting 24 volts at the contactor coil? If not check your control voltage wiring to the unit. If all is good check refrigerant charge, you will need gauges for this, compressor can be held out due to low pressure, also unit can be out by the high pressure safety switch which is normally reset manually.

SOURCE: Blown Transformer heat pump

blown transformers are usually from a low voltage short the first thing i would do is wire a automotive or resetable 3amp fuse in line with the transformer so you dont blow transformer after transformer the wire coming off the transformer that say 24v take that wire a couple of inches down and cut it and install the fuse in series there

now you can go through your low voltage wires one by one and test them unhook all the wires to your outdoor condenser at your indoor unit(furnace or airhandler) and try turning it to cool now if you blow the fuse the short is between the tstat and the indoor unit if the fuse is still good leave it on cool and hook up one wire at a time to your outdoor unit starting with R a lot of times your contactor or your defrost board will short out on you also look for pinches in wires wires with cracks in the insulation and wires touching metal this situation can be a real pain sometimes i would recommend calling a hvac company if you start to get stumped
hope this will help you

SOURCE: Condenser unit will not run. has 240 volt at

Hello, check the tstat wiring going to the unit for any breaks in or if it has come loose between the indoor unit and outdoor unit. Also, chevk if you are getting voltage from tje control board between the y and c terminal, if not the control board is bad. Last thing to check is remove tstat and jump the y and r wires there if this starts the unit then you have a bad tstat.

I have a 150 hp Ingersoll rand aircompressor It is showing "Main motor overload. We have checked the motor and there is no issue with the motor. The computor has locked up and we can not clear the fau

Most faults on the main motor have to be cleared by resetting the main motor overload in the control panel first. Simply push the reset button the overload. Then reset the alarm on the controller. If the controller is locked up pull the main power disconnect for 15 to 20 minutes. Power the unit back up and try the process again. if no luck you will need to replace the controller and maybe the over load or aux contacts. If controller is truly locked your only option is to replace the controller.

Have a SSR-EP100 air compressor that shows

Try to reset the main motor and fan motor over loads by pushing the reset on the overload it self, Then reset the controller. If the error resets, before starting. put a clamp on amp meter on to L1 or L3 motor lead which is located in the compressor electrical box . Then start and observe amps when unit is making air fully loaded. Once you know how many amps at full load the unit is pulling ,look at the overload setting on main motor overload and see if it is approxmately 10 amps above the max amps being pulled.If not set it about 10 amps above your max load amps.

HAIER HWR12XCA. Main fan stopped working. Condensor kicks on then kicks off after a few minutes. Any suggestions.

I would replace the fan capacitor. This is a split system and from the symptom you
describe, it would be the first thing I would look at since the compressor will go into
thermal overload and shut down if the fan is not running.
Fan caps are available online, Or you can get a substitute from a local appliance
parts store. Just be sure the value of the replacement is the same. Make sure power
is off at all sources feeding this unit before servicing. :)

On my window unit the compresser only runs for 15 sec. and shuts off for 4 min. the fan stays running.. its not cooling the room

possably a problem with the outside condensor fan motor. Pls check
1.) when unit is running is the outside fan motor also runnng. My guess is the outside fan is locked bad motor ect. Unit would only run maybe 30 seconds before cycling on its overload

Fan motor

Hi, the bearing on your fan must be stuck, have it checked by a technician. humming builds current in the motor and might overload.

I hope it helps

Air conditioner compressor keeps shutting down

This is due to thermal overload,Which can be caused by low oil in the compressor,the fan has stopped running on the unit outside,Dirty coils,or just a worn out compressor.Although this is thermal overload,It has nothing to do with outside temperature,But rather the internal temperature of the compressor itself.

What to do with the Total Blender when overload appears?

The product has a 3-year warranty:
A reading of “OVERLOAD” indicates an overload on the motor. Turn off
and unplug the unit. Plug in the unit and turn the motor on again to clear the
over-load condition. Check the blender jar for blockage. If overload condition
re-occurs, contact your Blendtec service agent.
