Street bob security light on,won't start

Hi Anonymous, when checking for spark the CKP needs to measure the compression bump in order to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM so always check for spark with either a third plug grounded or lift the end of the plug boot 1/2 " off one of spark plugs that are in the head. and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections especially the negative cable at "BOTH" ends
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, spark plug cable connections loose,
or cables connected to wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module, or sensors " Manifold Absolute Pressure" "Camshaft Position Sensor" "Crank Position Sensor" "Brake Apply Sensor
11. Engine lubricant to heavy ( winter operation )
12. Sticking or damaged valves or push rod wrong length.
13. Primary cam sproket spline sheared or missing spacer.
14. Security alarm system not disarming.

10 year old maytag MTB2154DR compressor won't start fans runs. How do I replace the start relay? Can I put a 3 in 1 hard start kit? thanks Bob

Hello Bob,
To replace the replay just remove the old relay and install the new on and connect wire(s) to new one exactly as they were connected to old one, it is recommended that the overload also be replaced,but not necessary to see if the compressor will start. I begrudgingly say yes a 3n1 could be used and some will say thats fine but in my experience if a 3n1 is needed the compressor is on its last leg and adding a huge capicator onto something that never had it will send a dying compressor over the wall so quick, and money is wasted on the 3n1 and the end result is a dead compressor.
If you have a meter the relay and overload can be checked first, by checking for continuty on the relay by placing the meter leads into the 2 holes on the compressor where they fit onto the pins of the compressor and check for ZERO ohms resistiance and also zero ohms on the overload by a meter lead in where it fits on pin on compressor and on wire terminal where wire connects. Both relay and over load should have zero ohmsresistiance and continuty if good.

the part number for the OEM relay is 10097204 it should be in stock at your local appliance parts store.

My frigidaire had a burning smell that woke me up this morning. smelled like burning rubber. I pulled it out, cleaned behind it. The compressor would go on every 5 minutes or so for about 10 seconds then...

Start relay and overload. This is a pretty easy fix. Unplug fridge remove back access panel by compressor. Disconnect the start relay and overload attached to compressor. Pay attention to how they come off so you can put new ones on. Disconnect wires going to RCO (start relay overload) all you should see on the compressor now is 3 pegs in a triangle sometimes upside down triangle. This is important when putting new ones on or you can mess up the compressor. Put RCO together exactly how the old ones are and put on compressor exactly how old ones came off. Reconnect your wires and plug compressor in. The compressor should start right away some models it can take up to 30 seconds unless the fridge is in defrost than wait until defrost cycle ends. The start relay is called the PTC relay and the overload is the protector/ protect relay. You need to buy both parts. Any questions please reply.

I have a hss25ifmdww thats not cooling the compressor is not coming on how can i check to see if its a bad control board or compressor

Pull the refrig out and remove the 8 " x 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board . Unplug the refrig . Remove the BLUE plug from the board , with 3 larger wires going to it . Looking at the blue plug , the sequence will be wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire , and strip about 1/4 inch from each end . Insert 1 end into wire1 , and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in and see if the compressor now runs . If it does , replace the board . If not , compressor is bad . When testing , ONLY the compressor will run and nothing else will .

My kenmore mod#2539183511 chest freezer comes on @30 sec goes off for @3-5 sec tries again.Need diag help or wiring diagram.

Sorry to read about your problem. you can have many different problems.

a wiring diagram will not help you in this case. all 3 items below at at the compressor.
odds are you will have to have the compressor replaced.

1. Failing compressor
2. Defective start cap
3. Defective overload protector

I suggest you call a service company.

I have tried to help you. Please help me, by Vote/Rate my response. Thanks.

AC compressor hums for a few secs then cycles off for few secs

Inspect all electrical wires and connections and correct any areas that appear damaged or overheated or loose (connections). There is a capacitor which is a round or oval component in series with the contactor and the compressor. Thoroughly mark all connections and remove the component. Take it to you local RV air conditioning repair shop and have them test it. If it is faulty, they will provide you with a replacement part. If it is not faulty and all wiring is okay, your compressor is locked up and will need to be serviced by a professional air conditioning technician.
Try the wires and the capacitor first.
I hope you find this information to be very helpful to you as a good, solid jumping off point moving forward.

We have a Goodman CKL49-1 - 10 Seer - 4 Ton Condenser. One of the wires that fires the compressor keeps burning and, of course, the compressor won't come on. It is beginning to happen every couple of days....

A bad connection in the power wiring, the circuit breaker, disconnect, capacitor(s) or in the compressor contactor (worn contactor) can cause this due to very high resistance and subsequent heat production. If the unit will run, it should be amped checked to trace the cause.

This assumes that the wiring is correct and that the unit was functioning properly before these issues manifested themselves.
