Refrigerator is not cooling only produced for heats what happened why they are given heats

Greetings Dhanam.

Pick a lucky number:
[1]: thermostat setting too high.
[2]: cooling fins at back too blocked.
[3]: refrigerant gas too low.
[4]: compressor fault.

[1]: YOU: adjust thermostat lower.
[2]: YOU: dust fins & grid at back.
[3]: TECH: check gas pressure & re-gas
[4]: TECH: renew compressor or relay.

My compresssor keeps tripping the breaker>

Loose wire in panel box or loose wire around compressor. any loose wire causes a high amp draw which blows the breaker. I've found wires that look good but are loose. Go right to the compressor outside and check there first. pull disconnect first and make sure there is no power. you either have a shorted compressor or loose wire. if you ohm out compressor with power off and disconnect the three wires you will get something like wire to other wire 2 ohms... same wire to other wire 3 ohms... other two wires you should get 5 ohms...2+3=5 good compressor.they will add up to each other.

What problem occour when unit take high ampere.

When a unit starts to draw high amps, you start loosing motors, the compressor ect. If there is a problem with one of the componants, it will over amp and cause it to burn out. Each motor has a factory set amp rating on it and as it gets older and worn, it draws more current causing it to over heat and finally give out. It is important to have the unit serviced to keep the unit running as good as new. That is what occurs, burned out motors.

Freezer and fridge not cooling

compressor not on most likely.listen for a low hum inside or low down close to the floor in front of it.If no hum its not on.depending on age you can install a hardstart for it and get more life out of it.

Compress dose not turn on

If all electrical is correct going to the a/c unit then there are four possible causes as to why this the compressor does not turn on. 1. Bad Capacitor (most common) 2. Low refrigerant/ High pressure cut-off (unit protecting itself) 3. Bad compressor (ground short within the compressor) 4. Compressor blow out - one of the three wires may be burnt off where the leads enter the compressor.
Be sure to turn off power disconnect before servicing unit!!

York screw chiller R-22

hi! there;
there are several causes we can consider in tripping of unit on auxillary sensor.the sensor device was designed to cut off source at specific limit of time or load.the over load sensor device was equipted to the main source specially on cmpressor of chiller to protect of burning the motor.
common causes of tripping off unit
1.high current on supply can check this on one common line of compressor.using clamp ammeter.what ever reading you got when unit is running,compare this on rated current on manuals if high ampere was registered.ther is an overload supply the over load sensor will activate and cut off your unit.
a. source of overload is due to obstruction on refrigeration system,filter dryer are clogged,excessi9ve oil on high side.
b. themostat not cycles on,due to poor condensing fan, dirty condenser fin tube,or condeser insufficient cooling effect.
c. bearing,lubrication are not maintained usually on compressor on open type unit,

2. electrical wire and electronic control board short circuited.
a.sometime relay malfunction on cantactor w/c the supply souce intermittent either on one line supplying compressor,the compressor will suffer,it will just hum and trip off,

b.busted capacitor will trip off your unit,due to in the absence of starting motor.
this are common ways unit trip off, so regards and have a nice day,and one thing more don't forget to rate me, thank's

Freezer not working but motor working

hi! that symptom correspond hizzing sound on evaporator.factors are to be check before you can diagnose insusfficent cooling effect check your actual opearating current using clamp ammeter,set to amperes rating,clamp to one line source take thereading,compare reading on the tag locate at the backside of freezer there is rated ampers indicated.if you got low amper rating your system is under charge,thats the time you recharge your system by qualified ref/ac technician.but if you got high amper rating your filter need to replace as well as your refrigerant.check also the high side pressure by service pressure gauge manifold or the compressor discharge pressure if can compress to 300 to 500 psig.if not your compressor has loose compression.compressor is worn out.

Air Condition

it sounds like a loose compression compressor.

if the compressor is loose compression, normally it sounds noisy. then suction pressure is above normal and if you accelerate and maintains that high speed, let say 2000 rpm, the suction pressure goes down to the normal level and cools your air conditioning .

May be this tripping your compressor,please check the continuity of the following..
1) Continuity of Compressor if this a loose compression
2) Continuity of Capacitor if this a low capacitance or not functioning.
3) Check the power voltage.

Go to the nearest shop for repair the units,thanks
