I have a maytag side by side refrigerator freezer with a Embarco EGY 100 HLP compressor

Probably not. Sounds like compressor would have to be replaced. It's an expensive repair. It would depend on age if unit

My air conditioning compressor doesnt cut off that resulted to burn my compressor

There is a sensor, typically in the dash, that engages and disengages the clutch on the compressor. If this sensor goes out several things could happen, compressor never shuts off or it never turns on, or as happened when I had problems it kept shutting off the compressor and the car would not cool off. This has to be repaired by a shop. Or you do like my brother did and put a toggle switch on it and turn it on and off as you want.

Compressor runs but the air bleeds out think it might be stuck reed

If your compressor reaches the cut-out pressure (or very close) , most likely not reed valves. Usually air leaking when compressor is shut off is result of leaking check valve at the tank. Look for brass valve and remove. Somtimes the valve is repairable if debris is keeping valve open. Clean or replace as needed.

Porter cable 135 psi 6 Gal model no. d27420 (homedepot) motor fried ! Can't find replacement, and if i do is it worth fixing? Looks like parts cost as much as compressor

These units are disposable so if the motor is gone, it is garbage. I would try a power tool repair center to see if they have any used motors to repair your unit. Save the tank and use it as a slave unit for a new compressor. This way you will have more volume and the compressor will run less overall making the new unit last longer. If you burnt the motor out on this one, consider buying a larger unit the next time. Hope this helps.

The compressor goes to start then cuts out

Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. The relay is a small usually black cube shaped electrical part plugged into the compressor or wired to it nearby. It may appear burnt or rattle when shaken if it's bad. The two connections should show continuity with an amp meter. If it's good then it's most likely the compressor causing the problem.

Compressor doesn`t stop and only goes to 60 pounds

Your compressor goes on and off based on the pressure. If it only goes to 60 # and no more, I would say it is worn out. The rings most likely. It can be repaired ... but before you go get the parts, consider that if the rings are worn, so too is the rest of the machine ... Consider the price and time to repair your machine and compare to a new machine before you get started.

Electical module to compresser burnt out

That is the compressor start relay and klixon. This happens most of the time when a unit os several years old due to the contacs on the relay and klixon getting loose from heat which causes more heat and then results in a failure. It can also happen when the compressor itself fails to start due to a failure of the compressor. The Klixon is a tthermal protector that controls a start winding period It heats up and then opens the circuit if the compressor does not start.

You did not mention any symptoms prior to your discovering the burnt electrical module so I am assuming there were none visible inside or out.

It is worth the effort to have this checked out by a qualified repairman. Many times it is as simple as replacing the start realy and klixon (interlocked as an assy when installed) Other than the service call and labor the parts required to attemot repair of this unit are less than $50.00. Once again it is worth an initial attempt at repair if the unit is less than 8 years old.
