The popping sound could be a direct short circuit, in which case you need to try to see where exactly the sound is coming from. You should then be able to correct it. Second thing is that it is possibly a bad starter relay and can easily be replaced. ratemeplease

    You mean the evaporator coil (inside) condenser coil is on the outside at the back. You can do a forced defrost or manual defrost and if it freezes up within a week or even couple of days, you should check out the defrost system. Including the pc board and the defrost element and defrost thermostat.

I was burning a movie and my computer flash off than on than shut off.. it spelled like electrical wire burning. now it will not even turn on


Sounds like the power supply died. This is where your power cord plugs into the pc. It is a metal box inside the pc. Smell the back of the pc, at the fan opening closest to the power cord. If it smells burnt there, then you need a new power supply.

Hope this helps!

The link below explains the extension cord requirements / amps. According to the chart, 14 gauge is good for about 50 feet, however you could bump-it up to 12 to be on the safe side. If you have a dryer plug in the garage or close, you could share that plug when not in use. Go to electrical supply house (or Lowes) with drawing of the plug /outlet needed and buy the components to make cord. If you have a 115v plug in the garage with its own breaker at the panel (plug with direct wiring to the panel) you could have an electrician convert it to 220 very easily. Good luck with your future projects.

I want to run this compressor "RITIN RT2012" 2HP 12L (1.5kW) compressor. It's a 110V AC drive unit and I have 240V. Can I run it or do I need to convert the Power supply.

You can't just run it on the 240 Volt supply. Check the motor nameplate. If it says it is rated for 110/220 or 115/230, or 120/240 Volts, then it is capable of running at 240V. This will require a wiring change, and you may need a larger size power cord.
The electrical diagram should be on the motor name plate or under the cover to the electrical terminals on the motor.

I have a Campbell Hausfeld oil type direct drive 7 gallon compressor. It often works fine but it frequently locks up until the internal circuit breaker cuts off the electricity to the motor. When the...

In our shop we have found the conditions you describe are almost always attributable to the power supply. First, never run a compressor on an extension cord, you are always better off running longer air lines. If you absolutely have to run an extension cord use a least a 12 guage cord no longer than 25 feet. If possible plug the compressor in as close to the circuit box as possible. Lastly the circuit the compressor is plugged into should be rated at least 15 amps, 20 amps is recommended for most compressors. Low amp lines cause the motor to overheat trying to get enough power and usually blow the circuit breaker at the motor and not at the circuit breaker. Lastly, use only compressor oil in the pump and make sure it's not overfull. This will also cause the motor to work harder and trip the circuit breaker.

Are you hooking within 5ft of the outlet? If you are running a cord, then the cord can't keep the amp rating needed to run the compressor. I have one that does the exact thing. Try plugging it in close.

Hello. This sounds like the power supply to the motor is insufficient. Eliminate any extension cord you may be using and plug directly into a recepticle. If this doesn't work you may need to run a new circuit.If your compressor has a relief valve pull the valve to release pressure while it is trying to start.This should help it by lowering the pressure it has to over come.

Air compressor won't stay running even with resetting

How quickly does it shut off? Is it reaching the turn off psi? or is it immediate.
If it is immediate then it is probably a power supply issue.
Air compressors are power hogs. For instance, a compressor may work fine on an outlet using the supplied power cord, but plug it into an extension cord that is insufficient for it and a repeat of your problem will occur. If you use an extension cord make sure it is made just for this kind of application. Also, if possible, give the compressor a dedicated circuit.
Another problem might be your unloader valve not working correctly. This reliefs the pressure inside the pump after the motor has stopped. it would sound like the pump is working extra hard at start-up.
