    You need to do a amp draw on the compressor and get a hi side lo side pressure reading.

    even though I'm not exactly clear on what the tech told you, "jumptrout51" is right. The tech seems to be full of "Hot Air". Give more info and I believe we can get it back going.

    Good Luck

    He is wrong.
    There are 2 refrigerant lines from the compressor to the evaporator coil. They are most likely OK.
    Is the compressor and compressor fan motor running?
    Are the evaporator fans running?

If you have a blocked capillary tube that had nothing to do with a power outage. You could get this if the condenser got EXTREMELY dirty. The cap tube runs up through the wall this is true but I have run external line sets up the back wall to bypass this sort of problem. You have to know where to drill so as not to hit the old line set or the electrical wiring which is also in the wall.

After running for a few hours it gets hot and shuts down but runs fine every morning


Without more info I will have to give you several things to look at. Typically during the hot months rotary units experience temperature shut downs due to the following. Dirty oil coolers. Blowing them out with air my help some but ideally they need to be washed using a degreaser solution. Location. during the hot months poor air flow/ air removal may let heat from the compressor build up in or under the cover or room. This hot air gets drawn in by the compressor and raises the compressor temperature. The cycle continues until the compressor shuts down on high air temp. Maintenance. Poor maintenance on rotary screw compressors leads to shut downs on high temp, high air temps then play havoc on dryers which causes moisture in the air system. Maintenance items that need replacing regularly ( about 2000 hrs) oil filter, air filter, Depending on type of oil used change 2000 to 8000 hrs, seperator @ 8000 hrs. Also the amont element will cause high temps if bad. It is located where the three oil lines come together. There should be 4 screws that hold the cover on. the cover also has a hose connected to it and located close to the oil cooler. This amont element acts like the thermostat in your car. it lets oil bypass the oil cooler or causes more oil to go thru the cooler. the cooler oil and bypass oil mixes and maintains a certain temp. air end temp should run about 195 F and injected temp about 165 F. hope this helps. if you can give more detailed info I can get you closer to your problem.

My compaq presario become very hot within few miniute and then it is automatically shut down.what is its harm and how this problem can be solve.


It is overheating. It may be a few things, check the vents and make sure they are not blocked by anything (sometimes dust can block them as well). Also listen and feel at the vents to make sure you fell air blowing out (if not the fans may have died out).
The fact that it shut down means it is trying to save the components before they burn out. You should be able to turn it back on once it cools down enough. You can also use a fan to blow air through the vents to speed the process. If it continues to shut down, it will burn out eventually if not repaired. You can get by for a while by using a fan base (you sit the laptop on it and it has fans blowing air on it to keep it cool). You can purchase this at any bestbuy or staples.

Bonaire evaporative water keeps running whne the unit is turned off


I would check electric solenoid valve on water line to make sure it is shuting when power is off to blower. Some of these valves can be taken apart and cleaned if it has debris stopping valve ffrom fully closing. To do this shut power off to unit, shut main water supply to cooler. Usually there are four screws holding top cover on valve remove these,remove cover and clean valve. Reassemble making sure that cover gasket is in good condition and properly placed. Turn water and power back on and try unit. Hope this helps you. Thanks

My PS3 seems to randomly shut down after anything from a couple of minutes to a couple of hours of use. It boots up again but the problem won't go away.


your unit is experiencing an overheated processor, and interval's the best bet i tell everyone get a fan for now and see if blowing the air to the back of the unit so that it carries the hot air away with it fixes the problem, if so you will need a addon cooler.

Hot air coming out of back


portable air conditioners mainly have two hoses one hose is exhaust thats the one that is blowing hot air. the one pulling is return.. the hot air blowing out should be exhausted to the outside. the blowing air needs a hose and to be laid out a window the back should have model and serial maybe product number. the two holes are either 4 inch or three inch and most portable units other than hand me downs come with a window frame that allows the hot exchanged air to go outside and cooler air to be used for heat exchange.

My car heater is blowing cold air


The shut off valve on the heater core was left shut during the repair on your coolant system. the repairman forgot to re open the shut off valve . this is the problem. open the shut off valve and, the air will become hot again. as for the gauge fluctuations, the actual gauge may be malfunctioning.

Hot Air from the Cooler Hi, my cooler is blowing hot air (its like a fan) instead of cool air.please help. it was perfectly working till yesterday. thanks


check the a/c unit. make sure you dont have any leaks around your system. sometimes when you have a small leak it will take time to lose out of system. but you may need to charge your unit up again. Also your compressor may be out of service. check and make sure compressor is running
