Every time I connect my Campbell & Hausfeld fp200300av Compressor and push the power on, the fuse blows. Even if I disconnect the motor from the circuit board the fuse continues to blow. Then I extracted the Rectifier-diode (the black and square with a hole electronic with four stands part).
This piece was the reason of the short circuit, I replace it with an equivalent one and I accomodate it to the right terminals in the circuit board. My compressor works flawlessly again!

According to CH it should be a 5 amp fuse/ time delay.

The symptoms indicate a short circuit. You really need a multimeter and ammeter so that you can troubleshoot the circuit

Instrument panel fuse keeps blowing, burning metal smell?


Some electrical short stay there, I suggest to check each electrical circuit that is connected to this fuse; check description or legend in the fuse label. With other details, we could send some electrical diagrams.

Hi,I have a travel trailer 37ft. Problem with my ac, the fan starts good but my compressor does not kick on. My next door neighbour says it's the compressor that is done. Could you help me?


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Motor Trouble Cause Diagnostic Procedure Repair Procedure Electrical Power is Off Check that all service switches for the equipment are in the "on" position.
Check for voltage at the pump motor or pump controls. If no voltage is found, check for voltage at the electric panel.
If power is on to the building, check fuse or circuit breaker serving the electric motor that won't run.
Check for local reset button on the motor (popped out = off )
Check for other power reset or power off buttons such as an access door compartment safety switch that turns off power to the equipment (found on A/C blower compartment doors)
Turn on "off" switches.
Replace bad fuse. Reset circuit breaker; if necessary replace bad circuit breaker.
Let hot electric motor cool down, then push in its reset button.
Be sure all safety interlock switches such as on compartment doors are depressed and that the doors are securely shut. Replace a bad safety switch.

Loose, improper, or broken motor wire Check wiring against the motor installation manual diagram, check all connections for tightness, shorts, burns, damage Rewire or repair or replace wWhen a sealed compressor motor has "burned out" this means that the internal wiring of the motor has become irreparably damaged: the compressor motor windings may be burned and shorted together or shorted to the steel shell of the motor, or the windings may have burned and simply become "open" or disconnected. If the motor has burned out in either of these ways it needs to be replaced.

Frididaire gallery has power to lights but nothing runs


More than likely the compressor grounded out blowing the switch, which I've seen a few times dealing with that brand. The times that I've ran across this situation, the main control board inside the refrigerator had to be replaced as well because the compressor sent a surge up to that section severely burning the board.

Airconditioner compressor (clutch) on 2001 chrysler neon 2.0 does not activate when turning on a/c. a) bypass of a/c relay in engine comparment control box causes clutch to engage b) fuse is not blown. c)...


Resolution:
The problem turned out to be a blown fuse labelled EBL Clutch, located in the instrument console (side panel in the dashboard next to steering wheel on a RHD model).

I downloaded the manuals of the Neon and it advised a sequence of checks to be done:
1. Test High Pressure switch located on compressor - check that the switch w/o/ cable gives a closed reading, then test with bypass in cable.
2. Test Low pressure switch located on accumulator, ( I could not find this switch). Bypass of this switch should engage the compressor clutch
3. I discovered the blown fuse when trying to activate the rear window heater and saw that the light on the switch did not activate - went looking for the fuse for this device and then found the EBL Clutch, really by accident. Shows you how confusing an abbreviated label on a fuse can be and that it does not always support the significance of it.

Other observations:
1. A/C compressor cannot run non-stop and must be controlled by the A/C controller. Hard wiring the clutch and running the engine for a few minutes led to the compressor shuddering and then discharging some gas through the saftefy valve. Normally this power supply would have been interrupted by the high pressure valve.
2. Release of coolant gas from the high pressure safety valve located on the compressor may indicate a faulty high pressure switch, but the primary or underlying reason may be due to a blocked Dryer in the A/C system.
3. The Daimler Mercedes Neon Agents, and an A/C company and an auto electrical company all attended unsuccessfully to this problem. No discredit meant in any way, it just shows that the incorrect label here makes solving such an ordinary problem very problematic. If any advice can be given to the Agents, read the manual.

Have been waiting over 2 months for parts . frige


it is not the solinoid, your fridge probably had a leak and you let run until all the refrigerant gone out, this will force your compressor to pump nothing and eventually your compressor will give up. you should ask your technician to check the system first.

have it charge with refrigerant and make run again, lets hope that your compressor will work fine, if not then you'll need to replace a new compressor

I found a solution posted on your website, suggesting that there are a second fuse to control the charger and it locates on the first row on the right in the fuse box inside. It was labeled as Power Point A (15A). I found out that fuse burned down and replaced it in my car. Now it starts to work.

A/c compressor clutch will not engage


There is a compressor relay "fuse" under the hood (in the fuse compartment). It is black and has a "diode" symbol on it. I replaced mine and all was well. Good luck.

Compressor not running


This is the overload/relay assembly. Although a burned up overload can sometimes indicated a defective compressor, in most cases you can fix the problem by replaceing the overload/relay.
