Your pressure switch is defective that controls the cycling of the motor,its fed air pressure off the tank line and opens and closes contacts to start and stop the motor to build air pressure when needed

I have an lg split system airconditioner. The unit starts up fine and runs for a few minutes. After a few minutes it trips the circuit breaker. Could you tell me what causes this? Thank you


Sounds like an electrical problem.. or the compressor is beginning to fail. Check the wiring connections on top of the compressor for burning etc ... If OK, the compressor may be shorted out.
Make sure the power has been switched OFF before any testing is done.. Usually an LG will show a fault code on the display on the internal unit but a dead short on the comp will happen to fast for this to occur. One way to isolate a compressor fault is to disconnect it.. If the unit runs ( fans etc) with the comp disconnected and does not trip the breaker , then you have narrowed down what the fault is.

The compressor runs fine and shuts off when the pressure builds up to the appropriate level. When I use air, it tries to kick on to build pressure up again, but it's not able to get started and...


Check the circuit feeding power to the compressor. These conductors may be too small. Conductors have a degree of resistance. Resistance consumes power. The power conductors consume is dissipated as heat and present a voltage drop to the equipment being served. Length and size of the conductors determine power loss.
An electric motor momentarily needs up to six times the running power and this power loss is squared ( PxP) at start up.
The bottom line: Shorten the length of the conductors or increase the conductor size to avoid voltage drop.

What size compressor can I run


You would need 10 times the watts it takes to run electric air compressor,the start up takes a lot more amps to get it going ,then it will level off to the amps,what ever they are.That is the problem,getting it to power up,then it is fine,so you are looking at about 8000 watt gen.

Help! air compressor trouble.


ASSUMING YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE PRESSURE SWITCH. YOU SHOULD EITHER HAVE 2 WIRES OR 4 WIRES ON THE SWITCH. THE SWITCH IS TYPICALLY MARKED LINE-LINE-LOAD-LOAD. IF YOU CAN SEE THE INSIDE OF THE SWITCH YOU WILL SEE THE CONTACT POINTS. ONE CORD WIRE CONNECTS AND PASSES THRU ONE SET OF POINTS TO ONE WIRE OF THE MOTOR. THE OTHER CORD WIRE PASSES THRU THE OTHER SET OF POINTS AND CONNECTS TO OTHER MOTOR WIRE. YOU TYPICALLY WILL NOT HURT THE COMPRESSOR BY HAVING THIS WIRING INCORRECT - PROBABLY JUST POP THE BREAKER INSTANTLY. IF YOU CANT SEE THE PATH THRU THE POINTS YOU CAN OHM THRU THE POINTS AND GET A CONTINUITY BEEP ON A VOLTMETER. IF THATS NOT AN OPTION, JUST SWITCH THEM AROUND UNTIL IT RUNS. HOPE YOU BOUGHT THE SAME CUT-IN AND CUT-OUT PSI. GOOD LUCK AND WRITE BACK IF THIS DOESNT GET IT. JODY

GE chest freeze won't get cold


the noise your hearing indicates the possibility of a bad start relay on the comp or possibly it just came loose during the move. on the side of the compressor you will see 2-3 wires running into an electrical connection reseat this first. if still no operation replace teh relay. you can purchase thru any reputable appliance parts dealer. after replacing the relay if you have no operation then likely problem is seized comp.
domestic freezers do not have low pressure switches that indicate low freon charge.
