Check for internal leaks ... Some time it is simple O0ring replacement. Better to replace a fitting completely with more advance options.
Or even better toinstall Digital Controller.

Make sure it has enough oil in it. some of those units have a cut off switch if oil levels fall below acceptable levels.

Dash Bolt loose at bottom

Hi Anonymous, you are going to have to procure an air or electric powered die grinder with a very thin 1/16 " cut off wheel. With duct tape build up enough layers surounding the nut to ensure no damage to surounding surfaces. Then very carefully, and patiently cut away nut and bolt. Good luck

Runs all the time. Why?

The pressure switch should cut off the compressor when cut-out pressure is reached. If however, there is a leak, or the reed valves /gaskets in the head/piston are faulty, the pressure will not build up enough to shut off. With the compressor running, spray soapy water on all fittings including around the head and drain valve. If no leak is found and pressure only builds to less than 50psi suspect reed valves. Parts are low in price and available from various on line stores including Good luck

We have had our Jenn Air refrigerator since about 2002 without problems. Suddenly, the freezer is no longer keeping ice cream hard enough even when set on the coldest setting. Any ideas why?

Can you tell if the compressor is working? Do you hear any clicking in that area? While there are serveral things that could cause this I will mention just the most common.

The defrost assembly has quit working. This results in ice build up behind the freezer rear panel which is where the thermostat is, so it thinks everything is cold enough. So it cuts off cooling until the ice defrosts.

The best way to check. Remove food from freezer section; remove shelves, remove the inside back panel and look for ice build up. If there is an ice build up them you can defrost the unit by either letting it sit with the door open and unplugged or hurry it up with a hair dryer. Once you have it defrosted then plug it back in and turn on. If things freeze up and works write, you will need to order the defrost assembly and replace it the next time the problem comes back.

Compressor not building enough pressure.only 5lbs.

It seems that your cut off switch or your relief valve is not working. If the cut off switch stops the compressor at 5psi instead of 100/120, then the switch is defective. If the relief valve operates (loud whooshing sound and the compressor keeps running), then the relief valve needs replacing. Normally the relief valve wears out first as the seal gets worn or the spring fails.

Compressor pumps up to 40# and keeps running and wont shut off whats up replaced regulator assembly because knob was broken off but it didnt help the problem whats next ?

If this is an oilless compressor you most likely need to replace the piston. The piston in oilless compressors are made of softer metals and will become distorted over time partially losing seal in the cylinder. It will have enough of a seal to build some pressure but not enough to reach the cut-off point.

EC-12 runs but only builds to 35 psi and continues to run

It looks like there might be a knob which sets the max air pressure coming from the compressor. If there is one, this may have been turned down.

There are usually 3 pressure settings on an electric compressor. Compressor max, pressure switch cut on, and pressure switch cut off.

Freezer is working fine,but fridge is not cold enough

Check the back wall of the freezer for frost build-up which would indicate a defrost system problem which would reduce or cut off air for cooling the refrigerator section. Service may be required.
