Either the reed valves are stuck or the piston seal blew. You can rebuild the head with a kit or bring it back to sears. When did you buy it?

SOURCE: Fault DE ( motor overload?)

DE error code stands for "Drain Error" resulting from no or too long a drain time. Open access door at lower left on front of machine. If small hose is not plugged, you can drain the remaining water out of it, then remove the large screw thing there. (it's the filter.) Clean it and replace. Test. If filter was clear, you may need to replace pump motor.

SOURCE: high amps in compressor

Hello, if the unit is overcharged, dirty condenser or non condensables in the system all will cause the compressor to run at higher amps. Try cleaning the coil first and see if it helps, if not gauges must be attached to the unit to check where the pressures are on the system.

My 4.3gal.air compressor runs then trips the's a fini 2005 lot90.

From your picture it looks like the compressor has had some hard use and subject to moisture.
  1. Moisture can cause the compressor end to have more friction and overload the motor, especially if it doesn't have a good air filter on the inlet.
  2. Moisture can weaken the motor windings and cause internal short circuits that can cause the breaker to trip.
  3. Moisture can attack the motor and compressor bearings causing the motor to overload.
  4. The pressure switch may malfunction and not turn off at the proper pressure. Too much pressure will overload the motor.
  5. The tank check valve could be clogged
  6. Too long of an extension cord or low voltage can cause this

I have a 150 hp Ingersoll rand aircompressor It is showing "Main motor overload. We have checked the motor and there is no issue with the motor. The computor has locked up and we can not clear the fau

Most faults on the main motor have to be cleared by resetting the main motor overload in the control panel first. Simply push the reset button the overload. Then reset the alarm on the controller. If the controller is locked up pull the main power disconnect for 15 to 20 minutes. Power the unit back up and try the process again. if no luck you will need to replace the controller and maybe the over load or aux contacts. If controller is truly locked your only option is to replace the controller.

I have a zanussi fridge freezer it is not cooling it sounds the compressor gets on for 1 minute and of

That is what we call short cycling. Most times the problem is caused by a defective start relay, overload and run capacitor. These parts can be located on the wires coming from the little box on the side of the compressor. Wish I could provide a photo but the parts dealers will most likely have a schematic and part numbers. The whole problem can also be brought on by a defective fan motor because the compressor works really hard to help cool but the compressor shuts down when it can not compress the Freon at high temperature. The problems listed are all related to what is happening when compressor stops and starts every minute. Try contacting I am here if you have questions, Thank you, John T

Could be the unloader valve did open, Unhook the motor from the compressor and see if you can turn the motor on, then see if the compressor can be turned by hand

Compressor runs and compress air,but when air setting is depleted compressor will not start to compress more air.If you waite it will start some times do think this might the compressor switch

If it doesn't try to start, then it could be the pressure switch. Another suspect could be the thermal overload on the motor. The motor (or just the overload) might be overheating and shutting the unit off, then allowing it to restart when it cools.

Is there any humming, or does it blow the breaker? When ot shuts off, do you hear a brief hiss of air?

If there is humming or breaker blowing on restart, or no hiss of air at shutoff, the pressure switch unloader valve is probably bad. If the air blows off, and there is no humming, and the compressor doesn't reliably start, it is probably the pressure switch. If pressure drops too low, give the pressure switch a tap with a screwdriver. If it starts then, the pressure switch is your problem.

Last night, we had an electrical issue... water got into an outside socket which knocked out the ground faulted outlet inside, which took out the fridge too. Once we identified what had happened we reset...

The compressor is high siding....i.e there was a BRIEF power outtage and it was repowered before the coolant system stabilized to the compressor does not stand a chance of starting due to high pressures so about every 4 minutes or so you should hear a click or note a brief blink for about 40 seconds of lights in the home. This is the termal overload cycling. The compressor / coolant system needs to equalize. Unplug it for 30 minutes then plug it back in and listen for the compressor to start. After a 10 minutes... feel the front of the chassis where the doors close. It should be warm to the touch. If you feel the chassis is warm... after 10 minutes everything should be back to normal. IF not respond with a complete model number. My bet is it will start after a 30 min rest.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

We need to try to find the problem by doing a little trouble shooting. First check the amp rateing on the motor name plate. Next check the amp setting on the motor overload. It should be set no more than 10% above the motor rating. While checking the overload setting check all of the starter and overload lugs/screws to make sure they are tight.Next lets check the amps on the the motor using an amp meter with the motor running and compressor fully loaded. Amps at full load should be within 10% of name plate rating. If Amps are high Check incoming voltage. If all of the above checks out you may have something internally happening in the airend.

The motor starter overload auxiliary contact is wired into the intellisys control unit. If the motor would overload, then the thermal overloads in the motor starter will trip. When this occurs you will get that message. The overloads are in the electric panel on the left side. You will have to remove the screws to gain access. Be sure to have disconnect off when removing cover. There is a reset button on the motor starter you can press to reset. Now the question is why did it trip? There are a few common possibilities. On is dirt in the coil not allowing enough air to pass over the motor. Slipping belt generating too much heat. Old or low oil causing high temperatures. Pressure setting set higher than unit is designed. You can set pressure on the intellisys. Another reason is short cycling. If you have this set for start stop operation by pressure, the minimum run time should be at least 10 min, and I believe mfg recommends even longer. If it starts and stops too frequently, the motor will overheat.I hope this helps. (I maintain a very similar unit where I work) These units are usually very trouble free units if you keep the oil, oil filter, air filter, and separator changed as recommended.

Ingersoll Rand SSR compressor shuts down loaded or unloaded with no alarm, and then shows ready to start . Will not run more than a few minutes either loaded or unloaded. installed meter on incoming power...

When it shuts down, press DISPLAY SELECT button once and use the up down arrows to see the code just before shutdown.









I am assuming this has a Intellisys controller.

I have a centrex split systum and it keeps reading e4 can anyone help

E4 = Compressor Overload: this code means that one of the safety overloads on the compressor has activated.

Diagnosis: the compressor has both an electrical and a temperature overload device built into it. The thermal overload will trip if the internal temperature reaches 154.4° Fahrenheit. This error can be reset by turning the unit off and allowing cool down before turning back on.


Blockage in the refrigerant circle,
(a high pressure on the liquid side, over 350 psig, and a low suction side, under 40 psig, indicates a blocked cap tube).
If a blockage is diagnosed, the system must be evacuated, blown back and cleared.
If this is the case
I recommended that a filter/dryer be installed in the vapor line before pumping down and recharging.

Condenser fan not working, if the compressor runs, but the fan does not, the motor or its capacitor may have failed. Repair or replace as necessary.

Compressor problem, if the compressor has developed internal faults, it could simply be starving for oil.
Any other internal problem with the compressor will mean replacement is necessary.

Compressor wiring, if the compressor and/or its capacitor have been wired incorrectly, the compressor could overload.
Rewire as necessary.

Please rate this solution.
