Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a Honda eu2000i generator to run a Husky TAW-1524p air compressor. Initial start/run is fine but subsequent compressor restarts as demand for air is required, put the generator into overload. Problem? Solution? Inline capacitor between generator and compressor? If so, specifications?

If your mechanical enough to figure out how to lower the air pressure switch on the compressor it would help with start up loads. For instances if your pressure switch is set for 75 psi. Lower this to 60 psi. or as low as you can and still operate equipment. Otherwise depending what horsepower and voltage {guessing 110 vac) the motor is, I would try an Hard start capacitor for refrigerators or air conditioners. They are rated by horsepower and have a built in relay that kicks it off automatically after starting . You can find these at any appliance or a/c & heating supply house.

SOURCE: Problem with capacitor of air conditioner?

the ratings of the capacitor should be on the capacitor itself in mfu sounds to me like the compressor stuck and cycling on overload is the capacitor distorted or swollen

SOURCE: penguin Duo therm AC bogs

Try replacing the wall thermostat with an electronic unit. It sounds like it is short cycling. If there is not at least 5 min delay before trying to restart the compressor this is what happens. Most electronic thermostats have a delay feature built in to solve this problem.

Hello Rich,NO you have a dual capasitor that runs both fan & compressor motors.Shut it down and let it cool off.You need the uf rate numbers & the volt rating of the existing cap (printed on the side)to get EXACT replacement.The wires plug in to the top termanls C, HERM &FAN.Worth fixing good luck.

Portable generator stalls when load applied


Connect the air compressor to house plug and check amp draw with tester. More than likely you will find that the initial start amp load is too great for the generator. Do not rely on the information stated on the compressor. Generators and air compressors do not get along. At our repair shop, we find that most contractor /construction type generators that were used for running air compressors had failed or leaking capacitors and were not producing correct amount of power. You could have gen set with weakened capacity and air compressor that is drawing more than stated on plate. Good luck

Screeching sound-Honda eu2000i


Sounds like a bearing has failed or something has gotten inside the generator or engine area where it spins and is now rubbing against it. There is a bearing at the far end of the generator from the motor and it is most likely to be where the noise is coming from. Best to repair it before it seizes and wears out parts you don't want to have to try to find!

Husky Wl6510 air compressor, motor shuts off


One other possibility is that the check valve between the compressor and the tank is letting air flow back against the compressor. Is it having trouble restarting when the pressure lowers to the cut-in pressure? If it doesn't want to start up again, sounding like it's starting against pressure, suspect that valve.

Husky comp on 1st start builds up 75 lbs and wont restart


Check the reset button on the motor to see if it tripped. The motor may be overheating. Some motors have an internal breaker and they have to cool off before they restart. Also check the pressure switch. Move the switch back and forth ( on and off ) and listen for a click. If it doesn't click with low to no air pressure then the switch is bad.
