It is an overload protection for your compressor. You can replace it any model as long as the same capacity.

I have a 2006 vw jetta 2.0t and the fans stay on even after the ignition is off and key is out, will run until the battery is dead. I have replaced the coolant sensor and the computer sensor on the...


The fans are run by rad temperature, not engine temp on a VW.Somewhere on the rad you should see a wire harness plugged into it.That is a thermo-switch which turns the fans on and off based on coolant temp in the rad. My car is a lot older than yours but this switch is virtually hidden on the bottom driver's side of the rad. It has 3 wires going into it.There could also be another sensor attached to the engine block or head to monitor engine compartment temps after engine shut off. This will turn the fans on or off as well based on air temp in the engine compartment.

Electric radiator fault on Vauxhall Astra Mk4 1.7TD 1999 model


on the thermal switch there is 3 wires going into it that turns on the fan at temp and also tells the ecu what temp the engine is at. both radiators have them fitted to them.

Car won't start after starting it with coolant temp sensor disconnected


Try a boost first before taking things apart,sound like low voltage.
Now about the fans.Sometimes it's easier (if the fans will work with voltage applied) just to install a relay and fire it off the switched power wire at the A/C compressor.Use this relay supply to voltage to the fans when the compressor runs.Want fans when not using A/C?Run a "in rad hose" temp switch and run that wire to the same relay to run fans when temp rises.Think after market hot rod stuff and keep it easy and simple,

Where is the cooling fan switch on 92 cutlass supreme?


It doesn't exactly work that way. The temp sensor on the engine sends a signal to the computer, and the computer grounds the fan relay.
You could use a scanner to watch the temp sensor data, or jumper the fan relay to see if the fans will run.
The fans should also come on when the ac is running.

1998 cad. deville engine fans only work when a/c is on. i took temp sensor plug off and jump it fan worked. when out and got temp sensor put it in still didnt work


On some models, when A/C is used the temp switch gets by-passed so that the fan runs.
Without the A/C, the fan may cycle on and off.
If it doesn't cycle, maybe the temp sensor needs to be replaced or at least tested...

My 93 pontiac grand am cooling fan won't turn on when the temperature reaches 220 degrees but if you unplug the coolant sensor the fan runs all the time, I've checked the relay and it is working fine what...


If the fans run when the sensor is unplugged there is nothing wrong with the relays. The computer automatically runs the fans when it recorded no info from the sensor to avoid overheating. The temp sensor is faulty. The ac compressor is not on the same circuit, it is not running because the sensor is unplugged and the computer is not able to determine coolant temp and disables the ac to avoid overheating.

Both fridge and freezer keep rising in temp, seems to be running constantly. Only about 3 years old. Replaced the board in it, seemed to run quietly for one day keeping proper temps, now back to running...


when you install a new board you have to check i think it's the 9 pin connector,the instructions will tell you what one it is,if there's a wire in the second pin you need to cut the wire or the machine won't run correctly.

We have a true T49F freezer and the evaporator fans are not running. The compressor is running on startup. The coils are cold. But are freezing up. Shouldn't the fan be on, or does the cabinet have to...


Freezers have a sensor that is referred to as a "Fan Delay/Defrost Terminator". It senses the temp during the defrost cycle. Usually, when the evap temp reaches about 50 degrees, there should not be any frost or ice on it. This device terminates the defrost cycle. It also keeps the fans off so warm air is not circulated. When the evap gets to about 20 degress or so, the sensor switches on the evap fans. If the fans are not coming on, either the sensor is bad or the evap is not reaching the proper temp to cause the sensor to turn on the fans.

Hope is helps to clear up some things and point you in a direction as to what might be going on.

Motor never turns itself off


If by motor you mean the compressor itself then no, it should not run all the time. The compressor should run until the thermostat senses the temp. is at where you set it then turns off the compressor. A couple of possible things... if the unit has a leak in the refrigerant then it may run almost continuously since it can barely reach the cold setting you have selected. Or the temp. sensor thermostat may be bad and the unit doesn't know to turn off. There is also a defrost cycle that happens about every 12 hours for a few minutes (depending on make/model on how it works) but that should also turn off the compressor and fans until the defrost cycle is completed. Basically it should turn off when the temp. setpoint is reached or when it's in the defrost cycle.
