Heat pump problems


Some heat pumps have high and low pressure swiches installed to keep compressor from running when unsafe conditions occur that can damage the compressor. If the outside fan is not turing on, the unit is cycling on high pressure, if you see ice forming on the big refrigerant line coming from the air handler, then the compressor is shutting down on low pressure. Low pressure can be cause by lack of air flow through air handler or from a low refrigerant charge.

Stopped getting cold lights are still on but i don't hear compressor run


Lori Davidson,

I understand that your refrigerator has stopped getting cold and you don't hear the compressor running. I would suggest to give the appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. After the 3-5 minutes, bring power back. If you still do not hear the compressor trying to run, I would suggest to either contact the manufacturer or your local authorized technician.

-Best Regards-

I have a husky jump start / compressor station model HSK03 Everything was working fine, but now the compressor stopped working. Is there a reset button or curcuit breaker? Thank you


The model that I looked at on the internet has a high temperature switch that will not let the compressor run if it gets hot (about 15 minutes of operation).
It will cool down in 10 minutes and allow the compressor to run again.
This MAY be the problem.

Have maytag fridge about 5yrs old and is triggering the safety switch to go off every 5-6hrs , the freezer is ok the fridge is not cooling, what is the problem


Most likely it is short cycling because the start components or condenser fan are defective. This causes the compressor to run for a few minutes and stop because of overheating. The overheating is tripping the breaker. The cycle will not change until the issue with compressor or fan is resolved. To continue to allow it to run like this risk permanent compressor failure. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Motor is running continuously and is loud


The coil ubder the frig could be filled with dust/dirt and no air is flowing over it to remove the heat. This will causecontinuous running and force the compressor to work harder and louder. A loss of some refrigerant (freon)will cause continuous running but not likely to cause louder running. The fan motor in rear of frig at the compressor could be worn out and running slow or stopped and without this air flow the compressor never stops and runs loud. Also, the door gaskets (especially the bottom part could be torn and bot sealing well; this will cause continuous running but not likely loud running. Goodluck, Macgivor

Unit shuts off on hot days


It may be low on refrigerant. On hotter days, the compressor has to run longer to reach the temperature you have on your thermostat. Have it checked for the proper refrigerant charge and have them test how many amps that the compressor is pulluig as well. With the proper breaker installed, the unit should not be tripping out. Make sure that the breaker that is in there now is actually the proper one for your unit.

Fan works, but if A/C turned on, trips breaker within a few minut


You need to verify if the problem is the unit or the breaker.  To do this, you will need to measure the current it is pulling from the power source.
If the unit is pulling too much current, then the unit is the problem.  If the unit is pulling as much or less than its rated current draw, then the circuit breaker is worn out.
The units WILL pull more power when hot outside.  It should not trip a breaker unless something is wrong with either the unit or the breaker.
A current draw test will tell you for sure.
If it's not the breaker, then it's probably low refigerant causing the issue.

Coleman rooftop unit ac only.


These units should run in higher ambient conditions within limits. If your unit shuts down with an ambient temperature of 95°F there is a possibility that the system may have a slight over charge of refrigerant in the system or a slight undercharge. This can be easily checked under running conditions by checking the superheat of the gases returning to the compressor. You may also want to check the current draw and the voltage supply during these conditions that are causing the system shut down.

AC breaker trips after 10 minutes


Whats the amp breaker? Is this for the inside unit or the outside condenser? If the inside and gas heat you have a bad fan motor, If its an electric furnace , the same, but if its the outside unit, the fan could be going bad, locking up and the compressor still runs and pulls high ampsand tripps breaker or the compressor is just pulling too many amps due to plugged coils with dirt , grass or weeds blocking airflow.(koolbreezes74401@yahoo.com)

AIR CONDTIONER TRIPS CURCUITS


Possible loose connections on the wires to the breakers,
or in the unit. loose connections casuse the wire to overamp and trip the breaker.
Also it's possible the breaker it's self is bad.
there ar also other possibilites but the 2 formentioned is the most common cause.
