Hi,
The overload opens to protect the compressor. It operates in relation the internal or external temp of the compressor, not pressure. With this being said, is or has the compressor ran hot or in a location where temperature increase is possible? I installed a unit in my work van and had a similar issue. I even know better, so in order to control heat I have to install a fan to cool down the compressor. To help you the issue is heat, cooling the compressor will be the only fix if you didn't already do the damage to the compressor. Good Luck

Electric motor keeps cutting out


There may be a thermal protector placed internally within the motor or motor-compressor to protect the motor and motor winding's components from dangerous overheating that can cause motor failure.
This overheating generally occurs when the motor is overloaded, a bearing seizes up, something locked the motor shaft from turning, or the motor simply fails to start properly. A failure to start may be caused by faulty start winding's in a motor.
The thermal protector consists of one or more heat-sensing elements integral with the motor or motor-compressor and an external control device. The thermal protection is in place to turn the motor off when excessive heat is generated within the motor circuitry and keep it from burning up the motor.
These thermal protectors are reset when the motor cools to a safe operating temperature. There is usually a visible red button located on the wiring side of the motor, opposite of the motor shaft, but not always. In some cases, these buttons are reset manually.

Surge protector for refrigerator power


I installed a surge protector on the electrical outlet that powers my LG refrigerator as recommended by the repair tech after my first warranty repair (refrigerator fan and main board). The board that was replaced actually had a burn mark on it where one of the components had fried.
Standard computer plug strip surge protectors may not be large enough for a refrigerator load. I used a plug-in surge protector that is made for use in offices for copiers and large printers since it has the capacity to handle a refrigerator load. Make sure it is one that does not cut off power so the refrigerator will continue to operate if the protector is overloaded or fails.

My freezer stopped functioning today. The light is on, there is a noise starting every now and then, there is a click and it stops. After a while the noise starts again. What should I do?


the noise you are hearing is probably the starting relay on the compressor failing and causing the overload protector to cut the power off to the compressor. Try replacing the overload and starting relay.

I am trying to find the thermal overlaod switch with no luck . Where is it exactly?


The motor has a manual reset thermal overload protector switch. If the motor overheats for any reason, the overload protector will shut off the motor. The motor must be allowed to cool down before resetting the overload switch and restarting. It is located on the motor housing on the side opposite where the pump and hose connections are. The reason this switch shuts off is because of low voltage problems caused by either a too low amp rating on the circuit it's plugged into or by using an extension cord. It is always safer and better for the motor to run longer air hoses than to use extension cords.

Ive got a refrigerator ,about 9 cf . therm is good but compressor wont go .i hear the click of therm protector . could the starter be out ? or would it be the compressor ??


Generally it is the compressor. The thermo disk overload protector is cutting off the circuit due to excess current draw.

Could be a bad overload protector in the motor. Some machines have a circuit where the machine rapid advances to the end when the motor overload protector kicks in. This would also make sense that it started happening in the Spin cycle when the motor draws the highest voltage.

Cuts in and out


I suspect a bad compressor run capacitor. Take the unit to a service facility & have the capacitor & overload protector replaced. The overload will be weakened by the repeated cycling.
