My bostich 6 gallon pancake compressor won't shut off. It get so hot it stinks and I turn it off. The pressure gauges show that it should.


You didn't state your model number so I won't be able to tell you what specific parts you may need. If your guages are correct and the tank is coming up to pressure as it should but the motor doesn't shut off when the peak pressure is reached, you have a bad pressure regulator. They're easy to replace. If it's possible your guages are off and the shut-off pressure isn't being reached, the motor will continue to run as long as it has power. Reasons for not reaching peak pressure in the tank could be a leak somewhere like the pump to tank line or drain valve, a bad valve plate that isn't sealing properly or damaged piston or cylinder assembly.

Kenmore Heater continues to run when motor has stopped


It sounds like you have a grounded heating element. If the dryer can be turned off but the heating element continues to get hot, that indicates a grounded heating element. Be Very Careful. There could be power running thru the dryer case. I would unplug the machine and check out the heating element. Hope this helped and best wishes.

DRYER STARTS BUT IMMEDIATELY SHUTS OFF


If you are having the same problem I had, the motor gets hot and shuts off. My motor was making a fairly loud noise when I cut it on. It would run for a minute or two and then shut off. I had to replace the motor. Motors are fairly cheap and not that hard to install. I paid $50 for a new one on ebay including shipping.

Heat runs ten minutes than heat shuts off continues to run


I'm thinking the thermostat has failed, it get's too hot and the emergency over temp sensor kills the flame before a fire is started.

Whirlpool dryer LGR7646EQ3. Burner lights before pushing start.


The heat is regulated with a Klixon mounted next to the blower housing near the vent pipe so it can judge the temperature of the air coming out of the drum.Right next to it is a melting type fuse. If the dryer runs and gets too hot the fuse will melt.But the dryer will still run. So if the fuse is good(continuity) and the dryer control(cycle) thermostat is also good then you should have power going to the gas valve assembly when the machine is running unless the timer is in the no heat or wrinkle free/cool down mode. When the gas valve assembly is energized the flame sensor mounted outside the burner chamber detects the heat from the ignitor. When the heat is very intense then the sensor shuts down the ignitor and that frees up the power so that the coils can be fully energised and open the gas gates. The gas comes out and hits the red hot ignitor and you have ignition. It stays on for maybe 2 or 3 minutes or until the control thermostat is satisfied and shuts down power to the gas valve assembly.

Compressor starts and doesn't stop


Relay for the compressor may be stuck ( Contacts welded) both the fan and the compressor should operate at the same time. Have the relay(s) checked and possibly replaced.

That should be just a push to start switch. The start switch is inside the motor. When the motor turns fast enough it trips an internal switch to keep the motor running. It sounds like you have a motor on the way out.
