How much oil a/c compresor need on a 1997 jimmr


You do not add oil to an automotive A/C compressor. When you do a refill with a proper coolant, it will have any necessary lubricants.

A/c compresor not engaging


Yes, freon must be present in the system in order to circulate the oil that lubricates your compressor. A low pressure switch is used to stop the compressor from running if the freon level/pressure is low. This is to keep your compressor from destroying itself due to lack of lubrication.

There are also several other reasons that an A/C compressor will not engage. Proper diagnosis is required.

My compresor pumps oil out of the oil dip stick "BAD"while compresor is on.


Hello Dickie, I just want to verify that you haven't overfilled the pump. Your oil level is in the middle of the sight glass correct?
As you see in the picture, this is your pump, and in the middle, near the bottom, you want the oil level in the middle of the red dot when it isnt running.

I HAVE A PIECE OF EQUIPMENT THAT RUNS AT 75 PSI. I NEED TO BUY A COMPRESSOR THAT WILL HAVE A DUTY CYCLE OF 50%. HOW CAN I SELECT WHAT SIZE COMPRESSOR I NEED?


That is an extremely high pressure. I would firstly check to make sure that THAT is what you need, then MOST compressors have a regulator where you can adjust the pressure required.
It is not so much the pressure you need as the STORAGE of air that you need for a pressure that high. MOST tanks are around the 20 or so litre. To utilise a tool requiring the pressure of 75PSI I suspect you would need a tank of somewhere around the 2-300 litre size or maybe even bigger. But first just make sure that you DO need the 75PSI you mentioned.

Compressor low pressure triped


If the compresor, overheats, then compresor it's not good, make sure that there is a safety cycle on. Explain: there should a click when compresor starts if you hear a click again within 30 secs. is a confirmation that the compresor has weak coils, and needs to be replace. If this is not the case, make sure you are not using an extention cord to run this unit, maybe wire are overheating.

How do I fill air conditioner coolant.compressor is new, but I need to add coolant.


You need to evacuate mositure with a vacuum pump and then add a can of r134a with oil in the can. Then add more cans without oil. Up to the amount on the decal under the hood.
The low side charge port is behind the passenger fender well. Remove tire and the 7 fasteners holding the plastic fender liner in.

Oil appears to be leaking from my Avanti Wine Chiller


Is it cooling ok?Where did you find the oil? If is not cooling and you see an oil spot inside or outside where the compresor is that means there's a refrigerant leak.

Freezer or fridge stopped cooling. Can not hear compressor kick on


If the compresor is trying to start and it won't you 'll heard a click and the compresor will be very hot ,that means that the relay is bad or the compresor is stuck or burned and needs to be replaced, but first before replacing the compresor try with the relay (no more than $20).But if the lights and fan inside the fridge work and the compresor won't start and is not hot ,the problem is in the cold con trol (you can put a jumper wire between the two wires to the cold control and if the compresor starts thats your problem) after all this if still the compresor won't start could be that the timer is stock in the defrost position.

Fridge freezer not working/power ok,


If the compresor is very hot and won't start,the clicking you heard is the overload at the compresor that goes on & off beacause the relay ,that makes the compresor start is bad or the compresor is bad ,if you know how check the compresors coil if not try replacing the relay with a same replacement(no more than $20 or $30) if still won't start the compresor needs to be replaced.

Turns on...clicks every few minutes....never gets cold


It looks like the compresor is trying to start and goes off on overload ,it could be a bad relay or a bad compresor.Try first replacing the relay located on the side of the compresor under a black plastic cover(ALWAYS UNPLUGGED THE FRIDGE BEFORE DO ANY WORK) if that does not work you need to replace the compresor.
