If you are in the USA
A compressor must be replaced by a certified refrigeration technician due to federal laws about proper handling of refrigerant. Also, all the joints must be soldered together with a torch, this is not a job for an amature.
If the fridge is less than 5 yrs old it should still be covered by the sealed system warranty and repaired at no charge.
I do know that the compressors for many of the SxS fridgidaires have been on back order due to a change to a different brand of replacement compressor. I recently waited 2 1/2 weeks on one I had ordered for a customer.
Once the tech has the compressor it is usually about a 2 hr job to replace, depending on the model.
Most of the parts dealers you contact will be hesitant to sell a compressor to someone that is not in the repair buisness, due to warranty claims if it is not installed properly. If you want to get one yourself you should be able to order it through Sears if you can't find it anywhere else. Go to, click on parts and enter the complete model number from the sticker in the refrigerator. If your model isn't listed you can call the 800 number on their site.
Hope this helps.

Why overload protector always cutting off and on?

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

Coleman POWERMATE Lo502710. Compressor runs and builds up pressure and then keeps on running even when 100 PSI. It will not shut off. I do not hear a leak when I pull the electric plug to make it stop...

There is a problem with your pressure switch. You should have a little black box with a red lever to turn your air compressor on and off. This housing contains your pressure switch, the pressure switch sends an electrical signal to the switch to make your air compressor run. When enough pressure builds up the pressure switch activates, and breaks the signal until the pressure drops below a certain point. I will do some more research on your compressor and find out which pressure switch you need to order. i need you to find any numbers on the compressor you can, serial number, model, stock number, anything you can to help me find the part number.
Thank you for patience,

A/c condenser leaks need directions to replace

First things first.

Make certain you have all the parts and tools required before you begin...
You will need a torque wrench to properly replace the unit.

Having said this and not knowing which model or year your Hyundai vehicle is. I will say that if your vehicle is not already running on the R134 refrigerant, this would be a good time to make that switch over and upgrade.

If this is what you are considering, the Air Drier/Accumulator would also need to be replaced at this time. This is the cannister usually nearest the firewall with the two A/C hoses/pipes coming from it.

(A/C Compressor - Drier Accumulator - New refrigerant)

You should completely disconnect your battery.

Removing the A/C Compressor will vary in difficulty depending on it's location.

Some A/C compressors are located on the top of the engine, or just off the side and are really easy to exchange. While others are located in more difficult to reach areas, like underneath.

Depending on where your's is located, you may find it easier to first disconnect the hoses on the back as well as the bracket supporting the rear. Then remove the bolts from the from bolt tabs and proceed to manuever it away, as best as possible..

Same process for the old Drier/Accumulator cannister. Dosconnect wire connector, unbolt hoses and make note of it's position, to help with installing the new cannister properly.

Some A/C compressors have a SWITCH. This is generally located on the rear head of the A/C compressor and looks more like a cap that is screwed onto the switch cavity plug. You may note this once you remove your old compressor. Remove that and keep, you will (most likely) need it to use on the new compressor.

I mention this because new compressors rarely come with a new switch and all too often people will install their new A/C compressor without swaping that switch from the old to new compressor... In which case, it will prevent the compressor clutch from actually engaging. Hence the result would be no cold air being detected, and a process of chasing fuses and relays begins in order to try and find out what it is and why it is not working...

(***Hopefully you have read and noted the above NOTE, YES, it is that Important***)

There will most likely be instructions in the box with your replacment compressor and I am assuming that you are replacing with new as opposed to used parts.

Installing the new compressor is in the reverse order. Once everything is tightened up and bolted back together.

As you begin filling with the new refrigerant, take note of any air leak or hissing sounds right away. If any noted, make proper adjustments prefore proceeding.

Hopefully you will have found this useful

Good Luck and Happy Motoring

I am presently using i want to install windows 7 is it possible,they cannot taken any booting from the cd,by default grub installer is loading

Hi Thanks for your question
In order to boot from the CD drive you must change the Boot Order in BIOS.
In order access BIOS you must press certain key on the keyboard during start up. Depending on the machine it may be F1, F2, F3, F10 or Delete key. Once you acces BIOS you must find Boot order settings. Again depending on machine this may look different, but most of the time it's a separate Tab or settings may be in general part in BIOS setup. When you find it you have to place CD/DVD drive on the top of the list of Boot Order and before exiting BIOS sace changes. Now your machine should Boot up form CD and you should be able to install Windows 7. Do not hesitate to ask more questions if further assistance is needed. Good Luck

About how much does it cost to repair/replace the compressor on a haier 21' (top freezer) refrigerator. can anyone perform warranty service (compressor in warranty, not labor)? model: htq21jaaww, less than...

Could run as high as $800, material and labor. Tech providing service must have manufacturer OK if he is not a factory authorized rep. Since Haier is Canadian, that could be hard to find in the US. Tech must also be EPA certified to handle refrigerant. If you are not CERTAIN it is the compressor, also check the start relay/overload and capacitor. Same symptom but cheaper, easier fix.

AC Compressor is out

Is it a bad compressor or the compressor clutch, if your compressor has gone bad you can get one from and install it your self, juts make sure you order the O rings for the high and low pressure hose hosing to the compressor. The average price to the compressor is $350.00 and after you have installed the compressor just have the system serviced from a A/C repair shop. There going to vacuum all the moisture out and then recharge the system. This should keep your cost under $500.00. Good luck and hope this helps.
