Clarke tiger 8\35 1.5 hp compressor runs for short time then shuts off and will not start

It sounds like the motor has a weak thermal overload if after a while it starts again. Either that or it's drawing high amps in which case you could have one of several different problems.

1 month old compressor has oil in tank

the piston rings may have not seated allowing oil to get by. The oil is then carried to the tank with the air. After enough run time and cycles they should seat. If not and this is a new unit I would call the 800 # on the unit and talk to customer service at IR.

No cooling at all

I have been out of the air conditioner service sector for a while. I wanted you to know up front that I may be out of date. When running service I replaced many compressors for a fraction of the cost of a new unit. Many of these customers had been told the same thing. Service companies make allot more on a new unit than they do repairing an old one. Many don't have anyone capable of replacing a compressor. Get more than one opinion and if you replace the whole unit get more than one bid. Make sure all of the bids are for the same tonnage, or btu unit. Some lower bids are for a smaller unit that won't keep up after it has a little wear or the coils get a little dirty. If your unit is more than ten years old you should consider a new one. If not, if you can find a honest company it should be worth replacing the compressor. Replacement compressors, if installed by a certified tech, have at least a five year warranty.

EC119SA less than one yr old just has started showing signs of low air volume. Was using it to clean off work bench, first blast of air was strong then quickly has very little pressure. The pressure gauge...

hi there, if there is enough air pressure present in the compressor the motor will stop,the pressure switch is working.if there is a good pressure at start then suddenly lost the pressure,there is no maintaining pressure to use but on the pressure gauge appear to be have a good or enough air pressure. check if the pressure gauge have enough air pressure the motor is stop,meaning the cut out limit switch stop the motor,if you loosen the air pressure from the valve until the cut in pressure attain or meet the motor will run again there will be a cycle process of differential pressure of cut in and cut out set up on pressure switch. checking the compressor,be sure there is a high pressure on compressor and the compressor motor is stop,shut off service valve and disconnect unit device / tools from the service valve. if the compressor have enough air pressure crakc down the service valve and observe the pressure until it run again the compressor motor,if the pressure maintain the pressure you need to clean the bench, the problem is the unit device/tool you use is defective, but if the maintaining air pressure in the compressor is lost due to malfuction of motor and the compressor engine. check the pressure switch, check the motor function by loosening the belt and run the motor w/o the compressor engine if it is tripping brought it to service center, check also the lubricant oil,if neccessary change oil.have a nice day and fix my rate thanks a lot.

Triumph Tiger Air in braking system in spite of bleeding a few times

Try bungee tying your brake lever on over nite, the pressure will force bubbles to the top,I hope you did not shake the new brake fluid when you got it as will absorb air easily allways let it settle for a hour after transport and allways use new fluid as old stuff absorbs water (Hydroscopic).

Weather King 10AJA6001AH Air Conditioner with bad compressor

If it is five years old it is either right in or out of warranty a service tech can determine this through the serial number. If not the unit is only a little bit more to replace than the compressor. A replacement compressor is only warrantied for one year verses a unit replacement with five years on the compressor and one year parts and labor.
