Hi what brand and model, and it sounds like the compressor isnt running and and that there is way too much gas in the system. Are you sure you tapped the process tube?

Location of bullet piercing valve on sanyo sr4433s compact refrigerator


Does the unit have a manufactures process stub on the compressor casing. That is where I put piercing valves to add refrigerant. Remember that EPA does not allow piercing valves to remain on system and the hole it forms has to be brazed shut. So if it does have a process stub place the peircing valve close enough to the end so you have enough stub to pinch off to braze thehole shut.

If there is no process stub, then install piercing valve in a convenient location in the suction piping and pierce the line. Remove the refrigerant and install a "tee". On one leg of the "tee" install a schreader valve pressure tap and rebraze the joints. Perform and pressure and vacuum test to check for leaks and weigh in the correct amount of refrigerant. Once your proficient at this procedure, it should take about 60 to 90 minutes depending on obstructions around compressor.

Just a comment, low air flow on evaporator give that same indications as a low charge. Make sure the evaporator fan is working and you have good air flow through evaporator section.
Hope this helps

Where is the low pressure switch


Locate the compressor, then follow the hoses, one goes to the firewall and the other goes to the front of the vehicle. The one that goes to the front of the vehicle is the low pressure side. It should have a connection on the metal part of the tubing that looks like a valve stem for a tire. It will have a cap on it.

Find a shiny aluminum canister under the hood thats bigger than a soda can and follow the tubing that comes out of it back towards the front, you will come to a valve similiar to an air valve stem on a tire. The valve has a black plastic screw off cap. That is the low pressure port. The high pressure port is located behind or near the a/c compressor

Im trying to charge my air conditioner in my 1996 Toyota Camary LXE that has a V6, but I can't find the air conditioner or the low pressure side.

No,you won't find it in the owner's manual. It charges through the low pressure side,which is the larger of the 2 available ports. You can't hook it up wrong. I suggest you buy a Hayne's manual for the truck. It has 90% of any answer you might need. A/C can be tricky to fix for the novice. If charging doesn't work,take it to the shop.

Problem with Bostitch air compressor Rilsan tube? Low pressure!


THE PRESSURE SWITCH HAS A RELIEF VALVE ON IT THAT DRAINS THE PRESSURE WHEN IT ELECTRICALLY SHUTS OFF. IT HAS A LEVER STICKING OUT THAT HITS A "SCHRADER" VALVE. COMMONLY KNOWN AS A "TIRE STEM" IN ANY VALVE STEM IN THE TIRE ON YOUR CAR. THIS VALVE COULD BE BAD OR THE LEVER STICKING OUT COULD BE BENT PRESSING ON IT ALL THE TIME. I WOULD REPLACE THE PRESSURE SWITCH, IT WILL FIX BOTH OF THESE PROBLEMS. TAKE YOUR SWITCH WITH YOU TO ENSURE YOU GET THE SAME THING (SIZE, PSI RATING, ETC) HOPE THIS HELPS. JODY

Coleman 5Hp Compresser


All electric compressors share a basic design with ac power pressure switch with unloader and checkvalve between the pump and the tank. When the pressure switch powers off, it unloads the compressor by releasing the air in the discharge hose. You will notice a small tire stem pin and a lever to engage it somewhere on the pressure switch. If the compressor stops before reaching set cutoff point, the air pressure remains in the discharge hose not allowing the motor to start, thus the hum you hear. Solution is to check for the proper function of pressure switch /unloader, tank check valve (if check valve leaks air back to compressor it will load motor causing hum) and extra measure check capacitor for at least 90% of rated valve. Finally, do not run this compressor with an extension cord, use more hose instead. enjoy
