Question about Porter Cable C2002 150 Psi 6 Gal Compressor

1 Answer

Unit quit working w/ no warning...will not fill w/ air nor run any tools. The power to and the unit is working the auto switch on the tank is working but not a sound when plugged in. All wiring seems to be intact. Had been running a staple gun and a palm hammer the evening before it quit working. The hose kept blowing off of the palm hammer but it did eventually get the nails driven.

The palm nailer is a little much for a small compressor like that. It might be OK for small guns, but not sanders or sandblasters, I think you might have blown out the capacitor, If everything else checks out. Go there, it is the main ingredient to the motor. Like the carb. You can match it up possibly at the hardware store, if not just call them guys up and get a new one. I don't know why it is rated at 150 lbs, there is nothing made that runs that high with no volume. Hope this helps.

Turning on heater the AC unit kicks on. When using AC it won't turn off, just runs and runs and runs. Would this be an issue with the thermostat?


find where the thermostat bulb is located
if it is the ceiling or unit , it requires the unit to fill to the roof with cold air before it turns off
as most rv units are not insulated , the unit seldom fills with cold air enough to turn it off
I would get an accredited ac shop to check it out

Air conditioner wont work


When the STOP indicator light turns on, the internal water tank has filled with condensed water and the air conditioner will turn off automatically. You can drain the internal water tank by removing the plug on the back of the unit, be ready for a lot of water to come out of the unit. The unit will shut down when the water pan is full. This condition may occur either when the unit is operated in high humidity conditions, or when the unit is being operated in HEATMODE, since the auto-evaporation function will not work in the heating mode. I hope this helps, have a great day, Andy K.

6 stage ro system under counter style will not stop draining or producing ro water at all I removed unit changed 3 pre filters and a post polisher now I gotta problem How long will this unit run to fill...


If the RO is not shutting off and there is no water from tank there are several things to check.
1. The product water tank is probably low on air. The tank may be full but no water will come out. Put enough air in tank to force out all the water then reset air pre-charge to 7psi for 3 gallon tank.
2. The capillary tube / check valve of RO system is bad. This puts back pressure on membrane to help create water.
3. The Automatic shutoff is not working, causing the unit to run constantly.
I would have to know what model RO it is to narrow down the problem further.
Depending on the Membrane production 10, 25 gpd, etc. and the TDS of water it may take 24 hrs to fill the tank.

Hello.

The GE humidifier adds a continuous stream of cool mist intothe air, giving moisture to dry air due to cold weather or dry climate or tohelp those who desire additional moisture because of respiratory problems orallergies. Sold online and in many department or home retail stores, thehumidifier requires regular cleaning and maintenance for proper functioning andto help keep mineral scale or bacteria from growing in the humidifier. ·1 Connect the power cord on the GE humidifier firmly to a power outlet if thehumidifier is not working. Replace or reset the circuit breaker as necessary.Turn the power switch to "On" if there is power but the unit is notoperating. · 2 Fill thewater tank to the "Fill" mark if the mist output is low or notpresent. Wait 15 minutes after filling the tank and before starting thehumidifier to allow the wick filter to absorb the water for proper function.Turn the humidistat knob to a higher setting for higher output. · 3 Check the capon the water tank and close the cap firmly. Check the rubber tank cap ring onthe cap and reseat firmly to help provide a better seal. · 4 Replace thewick filter with a new wick filter, available through General Electric, if thewick filter inside the base turns brown. Replacement parts may be ordered bycalling 877-207-0923. · 5 Clean thewater tank with vinegar and a soft brush if the water begins to get cloudy.Rinse well before refilling with water. Use cold water in the tank, as warm orhot water may make the water appear cloudy. · 6 Loosen thetank cap slightly if the humidifier cycles on and off unexpectedly. Turn theknob to a higher or lower setting. Thanks.

MODEL CPRD12HX7-Q THE UNIT WILL NOT TURN ON AND...


I have the same model and if you have been running the dehumidifier the internal water tank will fill with condensate water. You will need to unplug the black plug (in back of unit) to release the pints of water it has accumulated in the tank. Be sure to have a pan under the plug as it will drain immediately. Do not tip the portable unit if you need to put in a shower stall to drain, as water will leak out of the internal water tank into your unit. Hope this helps.

I have an old RUUD central AC unit that started blowing hot air. I set the thermostat to off and set the temp gage higher than air temp to turn the unit off and save money, but inside blower unit runs...


Hello

Okay did you check your thermostat to see if you have the fan switch on auto? The switch must be on auto or the fan will continue to run. If the thermostat fan switch is on auto then there is a malfunction in the thermostat probably. You can go to your forced air unit and on unplug the unit. That way it will not turn on at all, because the forced air unit is controlled by the thermostat. Hope this helps.
