If your compressor is grounded then you need the compressor. You can try to replace the overload and relay first.

We just replace the radiator, fan, belts, water pump and pulley in my ford f250. It runs fine w/o a/c. When I turn the a/c on it makes alot of noise and smoke comes out of the compressor unit under the...


The smoke is probably coming from the Serpentine belt. Flip the belt and see if it is now starting to be SHINY. The belt is going faster than the Compressor has the ability to turn. More than likely, the Compressor is partially seized and needs to be replaced.

I saw a cloud of smoke come out of the back an now no picture but I do have sound.Its model TDA03211C 32 " dvd combo.


The smoke may have come from the main power supply. You can buy the whole module from Polaroid which includes, the power supply and the signal board all in one piece. I am not sure if this model has the inverters on the side or embedded with the panel. It may also be the inverter.
Best of luck.

The module on the side of the compressor is smoking


You need a new relay. You can purchase an entire kit which would be your best and easiest replacement. It is part number URCO410. The instructions will come in the kit. Its fairly inexpensive and will get you up and running for a few more years unless your compressor was damaged. Just read the instructions carefully and make sure your wiring is right because if you wire it wrong you will burn up your compressor windings.

Hope this helps _MJ_

Smoke from compressor


That is your start relay. Some of the Whirlpools and Maytags use a relay that can burn up like you mentioned. Buy a new start relay and replace that old one.

You may want to change the blower motor as a precaution.
Do all the fan speeds work?
If not .....change the fan resistor board which is right beside the fan at the same time you change the blower fan motor.
