Eu6500is generator trips to red unload when ac is on


Air conditioner compressors require a greater amount of electricity (measured in both volts and amps, but the amps are what is causing the overload). You will need a larger generator to run your AC. You might be able to run a smaller AC unit, but always check the Amps required and compare that to the Amps the circuit breaker on the generator is rated for.

I have SSR up series 15-30hp air copressor.The compressor will start and build pressure until the pressure gets to a certain reading on the gauge and the unloader valve begin to unload the air out. But the...


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

I have aBostitch 2hp air compressor i like to get numbers off the starting capacitor mine got hot and i con;t read it . I call ther sev. and thay woud not give them to me .I whant to buy it localy .w


My compressor has a 60uf 330volt capacitor. With a bolt on the bottom, however, I have seen the same model compressor with other cap values. I suggest to try capacitor plus or minus in that range and read amp draw. Select the cap with best combination of start and run amp draw (lowest). Good luck

Compressor motor runs but does not make compessed air


Some of the things for you to check are for any leaks anywhere, the valve plate assembly, the piston and cylinder assembly and the con-rod. If you have any leaks that let air out as fast as the piston is trying to pump it in you won't get any compressed air. Check the drain valve on the bottom of the tank and the air line from the pump to the tank. If any of the reeds on the valve plate assembly are bent or broken they won't seal the way they need to in order to compress air. If the cylinder is badly scored or the piston rings are scored or broken the piston won't pump compressed air into the tank. If the con-rod is broke the piston won't work at all.

We have a 2007 CX7 and the air conditioning is not working well on either recirc or outside air in low ambient temps. When idling at the lights the air con becomes worse. There is no belt sqeal, and I dont...


When you have a moment pop the bonnet and look for the air con compressor run by a automotive belt on the side of the engine. Get the engine running at idle and then get someone else to turn the air con on whilst you watch the compressor. As the system is turned on the compressor clutch should engage and the unit should start turning, if this isn't happening there isn't enough pressure in the system (leak or just low on pressure) Get to your local air con guy and they will pressure test for leaks. Air con system is run on pressure, so that is really the issue you need to rectify

Note:- Manufacturers put the air con rad infront of the engine rad so stones get to that first, check the condition of the front rad through your bumper

You may have freon in system but compressor won't engage unless it's full under pressure. By jumping the the relay you're doing damage to compressor by running on low pressure. Have system evacuated and recharged to proper amount of freon - usually 4 lbs of freon

Have a 4horsepower neo plasma split that keeps tripping out the fuse in the meter box.have had air con guy out and he says the 14 amp fuse is not sufficient for this air con even though it has run on it...


Please note your fuse wire must be 2 to 3 times of running amps. Suppose running amps is 6.5, the fuse wire must be minimum 15 and maximum 20 amps. Always choose the maximum.
Other chances for fuse blown;

And in your a/c, If your fuse tripped as soon as compressor starts, check compressor winding with ohms. In between 2 terminal it should be equal in 3 phase compressor. In single phase compressor, SR must be the total of other two.If any huge difference it means winding weak. If any ohms reads between any terminal and grounding it means compressor grounded for which you have to replace compressor.
Hope, it's helpful?

My split unit air con will switch off automatically every 10 minutes and the lights will blink. It can only be turned on again if the power is switched off from the mains.


May be in indoor screen there is some error code. Don't worry. I try to solve it. Normally after 3 minutes compressor will start. If compressor amps gradually increase due to condenser block or less rpm of fan motor. Please ensure with amps meter for increasing ampere It will run just 10 minutes or up to the maximum running amps and get tripped. Service your indoor and out door and check. . Is it helpful?

Air con pump not engauging


Hi:

You should verify that your AC system still has a full charge of refridgerant, and if it does,
The problem is most likely the AC clutch assembly on the front of the compressor.

Since the dash light works, and the fan turns on, there is power to the system, but the compressor won't turn on if the pressure switch says the charge is low, and if you turn the switch, and someone can hear a click of the compressor clutch solenoid, but no air, the clutch assembly is probably the culprit

Volvo v70 air con fault


This is probably a clutch problem on the compressor, either buy a new clutch or get a second hand compressor and swap the clutch over.
