SOURCE: Kitchenaid Superba compressor

The compressor relay is located on the compressor under a cover. Before you go to the compressor I would check for other problems that you can see and hear. If the compressor is running there is nothing wrong with its relay.
1. Check the condenser and make sure it is clear and free of dust.
2. If the compressor is cool or cold check for a bad temperature control.
3. Check the freezer compartment for frost on back wall.

SOURCE: Need a part for Homelite model HP3127S pressure washer - 3100 PSI

I lucked out when I managed to locate a local rent it centre who sells and services Homelite equipment. I bought my pressure washer at Home Depot and when I approached staff there regarding my problem, they had no idea if there even was a local dealer who sold/serviced Homelite stuff. telephone enquiries finally led to the rental place who ordered the part for me. I was getting concerned!

SOURCE: The rear suspension is down on my 1999 Ford

I had a 1999 Expedition. When you put the 4x4 on it raises the vehicle an extra inch or 2.
It may help to turn the 4x4 off. Two wheel drive is a lower air setting.
Your original pump may still be good. The problem can be in the front. The compressor is not filling the front suspension to the cutoff point. It will lift the rear after the front end is at running height. Since you lost the front end first, the remaining air bled out there and then the rear came down. Once you shut down the car the suspension was done, all the air was let go.
There are adjustment solenoids on the body but you need someone qualified to repair this.

SOURCE: Chain oil is pumping into area where pipe goes

Hello. If you haven't done so already ,remove the bar and chain and make sure the slot in the back aluminum plate lines up with the oil outlet hole if so ok. Use a thin tool (utility knife works) and scrape inside the chain groove of the bar to clean it out.Make sure the oil inlet hole in the bar is clean. If it doesn't work after doing this you may have a cracked oil tank,disconected oil line,or worn out oil pump.

Car stalls when ac or defrost on

Sounds like the compressor is dragging the engine down. The compressor runs in ac and defrost mode. You might try unplugging the compressor to verify.

I have a craftsman 919.167241 compressor for about 3 years which is only used ocassionally. used it last week, turned on with around 100 psi in the tank from last use and motor shuts off after about 30 sec...


Suggestion, in future when finished with air, drain the tank, this may have some effect on the head valves or the pressure switch.
Try disconnecting the head/ tank pressure delivery tube/pipe, run on manual and auto to see whether
it will run.
If there is no air delivery out of the pipe or head.If there is an mimnimal air supply then there may be a problem with the head pressure valves
Hope this is of help

Craftsman air compressor wont hold more than 15lbs of air?

Change that coupling . You can try spraying a little WD-40 or similar into it, while you push it open with a screwdriver, just to see if that helps seal it better. If air leaking by there all the time, compressor that small can't keep up.

It sounds more likely that your fan is not pushing enough air across the heat exchanger. If you have a multi-speed fan, I would suggest increasing the blower speed. Otherwise you will continue to cycle on and off on the high limit. Also make sure that you do not have any return or supply vents blocked off, as this often times will cause the same problem. Hope this helps.

Possible Contactor Issue

Sounds like a bad fan switch in your unit. That unit has a fan board in it that is time delay on and off. Turn the fan to the on position and let it run all the time. If it keeps temp and does not shut off it is the fan realy board. The board also controls the compressor. Check that first and then the tsat. Russ

High limit switch open- but only faults in night and extreme cold

Hello , I can try to help you out on this one , It sounds like what is happening is that your exhaust vented up is condensating from the heat in the pipe and the cool in the attic or wherever the exterior of the exhaust pipe travels. It is very common because your exhaust/flu pipe is not insulated.
To fix this issue you must drain the water/condensation from the small 5/16th hoses in front of the blower assembly , just pull them loose and angle them downward to drain. This should fix the problem if this is the problem.
Let me know how it turns out or if you have anymore questions. Phil
