Question about Intertherm Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have an intertherm compressor. The thing has recently taken to melting the wires at the compressor(red wire and now yellow wire). If the attach lug on the compressor is burned down to the nub, is there an affordable repair other than replacement of the compressor?

Replace the compressor and the wire harness that supplies the power to the compressor. Burnt off wires are due to bad conduction at the connections.

    Maybe a better answer to this asker would be a just plain NO.

Can anybody tell me how the four wires hook up on glow plug relay. I have a hot a red wire with yellow stripe ,red wire and two brown wires. On 95 7.3 powerstroke

You have 4 wires, you have 4 lugs on the relay. It doesn't matter how they go on, except you have 2 big lugs and 2 small ones. Attaches the wires according to size, which side they go on doesn't matter. If you only have 1 small wire, it goes on the side marked "I" Ignition.

New plug changed from a 4 wire to a 3wire,won't run.

You have 3 lugs to hook up to. right lug gets red or black, left lug gets red or black. Center lug gets white. you can also hook green wire to center with white. Or hook green to the screw for the lug cover. What you did is correct.

Weed eater pulled out red & white wires from thermostat at a/c unit. Red went to yellow and white to ?. Unit is an intertherm unit, model unknown but schematic #703909b

if there is only two wires at the condenser it does not matter which side of the contactor you attach it to with little blue wire nuts.

The two wires will send the required 24VAC to pull in the contactor

Three wires melted.....

Possibly....usually a melted wire indicates a bad connection. Can you solder or crimp the wires to the compressor?
