My compressor is building to much pressure and blowing out the relief valve. what do I check

You didn't give the model of your compressor so, for an electric model: Check your gages while the tanks are filling. If the pressure gets to the rated high pressure level for your model and keeps going until the relief valve pops, the problem is with the pressure switch. It isn't turning the motor off when it's supposed to. If the relief valve pops before getting to the max pressure the tanks are supposed to be at then the spring in the valve is broken or weakened to where it pops too early. Replace the relief valve.

I just got a used 2005 clk500 with 27K miles and airconditioning was working great on way in to work. and at lunch it started blowing hot air no matter what temp i had it at. Any ideas?

You could have a leak in the AC system ... if you just bought the car, the previous owner might have filled the Fre-on just before selling it to you, which would have hidden the problem. If this is the case, take it to a mechanic and they can probably find the problem.
Your compressor might not be compressing properly -- when you put the air on full-cold do you hear the compressor kick on? If not, it might be a bad compressor, or no coolant. Once again, this would require a mechanic to give you all the details
Your AC system might be in perfect shape, but out of coolant anyways. A mechanic should be able to fill it up for you in short order.
Unfortunately, if you are not experienced with working on cars, the AC system is not the safest to be working on on your own. It is highly pressurized when filled with coolant (which is a toxic substance) and without the right tools and experience, you could get severely hurt by loosening the wrong bolt at the wrong time. I highly recommend taking the car to a professional to reduce the risk to yourself.

There are many reasons why a dehumidifier will not work or collect water.

Tank does not fill to proper psi. tank fills to 60 psi motor keeps running but wont fill to 150 that its supposed too. when i shut off compressor no air leaking????

strip the cyclinder off and inspect the valves if closing and opening also check to make sure you dont have a blown head gasket also on the tank from the pipe from the pump unit is a gold valve you need to open the end off this valve with the tank drained and turn the ruber around with the spring inside and replace this if still doesnt work get back to me bud

Have a campbell housfeld compressor supposed to shut off at 120 but it blow the breaker after 100 is there a way to lower it so it cuts off earlier then 120? i let my friend borrow it and broke the switch,...

If wires were in the wrong slots you would know once you put power on the unit, the gauge could be damaged and giving you a false reading and the pressure switch may also be damaged.also if you are using an extension chord this may also cause high amp draw.

I have the same problem. I believe it is because it has a refrigerent leak. When there is little refrigerent, the begining of the coil will freeze up. I would really suggest calling the manufacturer. It is defintely something to do with this specific model
