    I fixed the problem after a little more playing, it ended up being the pressure valve on the tank sticking and bleeding off the tank and not releasing the compression off the pistions.

My 2002 TB a/c works for 20 min. Then does not. Checked , no leaks, clutch turns, condenser clicks until blowing hot air, replaced low pressure switch

Something to check because this has happened to me.....Make sure you have enough coolant in the radiator/overflow tank. IF the engine is running hot, the thermal switch on the AC compressor will turn it off to protect the compressor from overheating and damaging it. Don't go by the guage in the dash, it's usless. Hook up a scan tool and get the exact temp. Shouldn't be over 210 which is normal operating temp.

My lg wm0742hga front load washer machine over fill of water causing to leak out from the door

even when overflowing it shouldnt leak from the door? less u have a bad door seal? the water problem may be due to a bad water inlet valve? have u notice water in the tub even when ur not using it? check with a multimeter the inlet valve and the water pressure switch? blow into the water pressure switch while it is in the wash mode filling with water and if it starts washing the diaphfram is good if not its faulty. u can also checl the water inlet valve the one with the hoses attached . by running either a hot or cold cycle only and turn off the hot then turn off the cold? see if it continues to over flow with each cycle? hot then cold- GOOD LUCKKKKK

Overcharged A/C on my Ram 2500

bypass the pressure switch with a wire and see if the compressor kicks in. What are your pressures? Ambient temp? An over-charge should not lock up the compressor. It is a closed system so you definetly have a leak somewhere. use soapy water around joints looking for bubbles.

6hp 25 ga. porter cable compresser, keeps running -blows, blowout valve, compresser works good new pressure switch? thanks ,scoop

Pressure switch can be adjusted to lower pressure (most are set between 125 and 150) however could be faulty safety valve if safety open below 165psi. Some things to check. Safey has pressure setting stamped on side. Check range of safety and compare to tank pressure when safety opens. Check that pressure switch contacts are not welded (unplug unit and remove cover to switch, look for contacts thru side of switch). If you suspect that switch is faulty, buy universal switch from ebay or other suppliers making sure of pressure range and fittings. Good luck

With Model #GF9s120d20up11g, gas furnace, the blower model behind first top access door is very hot but furnace won't ignite, what"s the problem?

You did not mention if the blower is turning or not. If so, take a jumper wire and jump out the pressure switch to see if the igniter glows. If so, you either have a bad pressure switch, the inducer motor (the hot one) is not blowing enough to close the pressure switch, blockage in the condensate hoses or blockage in the vent system. If the blower does not turn, replace it.

Compressor runs to 175psi but trips pressure relief when pressure drops tries to restart motor but motor wont turn blows breaker. changed whole pressure switch have same problem.

The problem is lilkely the check valve between the compressor and the tank -- it is alowing pressure to build from tank to compressor preventing the compressor from turning over. Clean, maybe replace, check valve...

A/C just went out. Worked fine earlier today,

Wow thats hot!! Ok want a quick fix? You sound like ya have a leak so lets see whats going 3 cans of freon 123a...they come in 1 pound cans...get a low pressure charge hose.
here"s what you will do,
buy 1 can of leak detector freon 134a(1 Lb.)
1 can of synthetic freon 134a with oil(1Lb.)
1 can of 134a freon with sealer
Find the low fill port the fitting will only fit on low side....there are two one is the high one is the low they both have screw off caps use the bigger one...thread the first can with leak detect. in it and fill it through the port, turn a/c on high blow full a/c, jump out the compressor low pressure cut out switch...if you buy your stuff from Auto Zone the guy will show you which switch that is on a diagram he can supply for free just ask, next fill the leak stop can, then the one with a/c oil.
Should be cold, drive a while or until it leaks out and spot the dye coloration coming out of the system showing you where the leak is, bleed off the system repair the leak and refill like I just told you use up to 2 3/4 cans max.
Happy Motoring!!

AC blow out hot at low rpm

when you are stoped does the car idle fine. when the rpms are low the compressor does not get the pressure up high enough. you may need to get you idel turned up a little or your vaccume advance may have a vaccume leak.

My ac blows hard, added freon, clutch not turning could it be fus

If the blower is working,it indicates your car blower system is ok.If the freon system is contain the correct amount and still clutch is not turning when the A/C switch is in the on position check the supply for the compressure.If there is supply that means the problem with the A/C compressur clutch coil and apply the repair procediure or replace A/C cpmpressure.If there is no supply Check the fuses,wiring system and A/C system pressure switch.
