    I have looked all around the motor and do not see a reset button. Can you tell me where it is located, or do I have to remove the motor to find it?

The compressor will run stop start or load unload. There is a switch for this. Make sure the right mode is selected.stop start for light use. Load unload for heavy. This mode keeps the starting and stopping to keep from burning up the motor. That is rated by stops per hour. They shouldnt be more than 10 times per hour

Low freon will cause the compressor to short cycle, when the compressor runs the pressure in the low line is pulled down and the low pressure switch turns it off. Not running the pressure builds up and turns it back on. In the old days there was no low pressure switch, with no freon to carry the oil the compressor was destroyed.

CONTACTOR RELAYCLOSE BUT LOOK BURNED , FAN MOTOR START , BUT COMPRESSOR MOTOR START AND STOP IMMEDIATELY. CONTACTOR STAY CLOSE BUT COMPRESSOR DON'T RUN.OR COME ON AND STOP IMMEDIATELY.


sounds like a locked rotor, did the compressor get hot? did you check max amps on the compressor when it attempted to start?compressors have thermal protection built into their windings, a switch that will open to protect the compressor, and if the rotor is locked, normally you have to replace it, you could try putting what is called a start assist capacitor on it (AKA hard start kit) I would recommend the two wire model, easy to install.
You will need to wait for the thermal overload to reset, turn power off to unit till you get the kit on there.

MY COMPESSOR GAGE SHOWS 135 PSI AND 135 ON THE OUT PUT GAGE BUT I CAN,T INFLATE MY MOTORHOME TIRES TO THE REQUIRED 110#.DO I NEED A LARGER COMPRESSOR?I CAN,T FIND ANY LEAKS.


It is possible that the compressor psi as it is running drops below the tire psi creating a standoff. You must maintain air compressor psi over 110 to fill a tire to 110psi. Add air to your tire but stop when the compressor motor starts to run. When the motor stops then continue to add air until the compressor motor starts and again stop airing up the tire. Repeat as needed.

It sounds like your inverter is at fault. You will need an inverter tester ( most good service techs will have one ) to prove that the output to the compressor is correct. If the inverter is okay then it will be the compressor at fault with a location error or it is simply seized. A common fault that caused this was the eev remained closed (coil failure ) and caused the compressor to over heat.

Starting and stopping of air compressor ( no leaks)


This can depend on many variables . (1) How big the air tank of the compressor is, (2) how many PSI the compressor is set to hold, and (3) how many PSI your air gun uses per shot. If you gun is rated at a very high PSI and your compressor has a small tank and low PSI, you may want to consider investing in a larger tank.

Motor trys to start


Sounds like the compressor has locked up. You can try to replace the start relay which plugs onto the compressor terminals.

Most factory built refrigerators and freezers have 5 year refrigeration system warranties. You will pay for labor and other consumables.

Compressor starts and doesn't stop


Relay for the compressor may be stuck ( Contacts welded) both the fan and the compressor should operate at the same time. Have the relay(s) checked and possibly replaced.
