If this is a RUUD unit, the reset button is for the High Pressure Switch. It cannot be replaced without refrigerant recovery and recharge. Unless it is creating a problem for you, I recommend NOT replacing it (quite expensive) until it DOES become a problem. In the meantime, continue to keep your filters and coils clean. :-)

I was given a 3-HP HDC pancake compressor a few days ago and the man (he was throwing it away) said it worked although a bit slow to build up pressure and that it needed a new gasket. Is it worth keeping...

Hi app_3rp778
I would suggest that you replace the head gasket, it should not cost too much to replace it.
I would guess the gasket would be around $10-$15 usd
If you replace it yourself it would be very advantageous as the repair cost would only be the gasket.
If you take it to a repair shop, I would guess they would charge around $50-$60 usd for the repair of the compressor and replacement of the gasket
Do some research on the web for your parts or check out the webpage below.
Have the parts sent to your house...will be cheaper to take the part to the repair shop then to have them order it...they normally charge 200% on parts.
Also look at the following webpage for repair of the gasket and some more hints on how to repair a porter cable compressor pancake compressor, it is not your compressor but it will be somewhat like your compressors repair procedures.

The compressor reset button trips often, , it reads within the specs under load 8-10amp or reset at 12amp , I hard wired it and its been working fine for 20 days now , should I buy a new reset button

I have read that a thin or long extension cable can cause this. But you can also circuit breaker that plugs into the line before the device. And I would think the breaker on the main board would be enough protection.

Where is the reset button on the Comfortmaker AC-model number NAC048AKC3? Thank you!

if it is a split system that is permanently installed in your house the reset button will always be near the compressor so that means on the outside unit somewhere, you probably wont need to remove any screws to get to it. but before you press that button and think all is well, why did the reset button trip? answer> because it is a high pressure cut off. your unit probably reached over 350psi on the high side line or possibly even higher. that is not good. you may have a dirty condenser coil (outside) and you can just hose that out with a garden hose (pull the disconnect first). or you may have a rotting out coil if your unit is old or you live less than 5 miles from the ocean. Or you may have a bad condenser (outside) fan motor. check that out. if it overloads again after hitting the reset (which this unit may not even have, not all units have these just the higher end ones) well if it does overload again call a licensed ac guy trust me it will cost you less in the long run.

Is there a reset button on the outside compressor/fan unit?

No there is no reset button "per se" but you can check the fuse box/disconnect to see if the fuse is blown.

Hotpoint freezer

The compressor needs to cool off before it will restart. Leave it unpluged for a couple hours to see if it will restart.
