Sounds like you need a bigger fuse.What happens is there is no load (air) in the tank so their is no compression and the motor isn't working as hard as when it reach's the cut off point and restarts.Now there is air in the tank which makes the motor work harder and that pulls more than 15 amps and blows the breaker.I would start with a 30 amp and go higher if need be.Thank You for choosing FixYa.com

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan - A/C blows cold in back, but not in front


Blower motor not working , do you feel an air movement out the front vent's ? ( I just did a self-recharge on my refrigerant ) Too much of a charge can work as not enough of a charge . The back or AUX HVAC system works off the same compressor as the front . The noise you hear is just refrigerant moving through the system . Temp .door actuator maybe . Your best bet ,mite be to take to a qualified repair shop. Doesn't sound like you know about automotive A/C systems . .

Try to use a higher amperage extension cord.
This unit is rated for 15 amps. It should be able to run on a 20 amp circuit unless there is voltage drop due to small wiring. Try an air conditioner extension and let us know the result.

Which 15Amp fuse blows?? Sounds like a pinched wire in the area of the headlight/instrument cluster. Remove the faux gas tank cover center section and maybe also remove battery. check in front of battery compartment for pinched wires etc.

I can offer more help if you post which fuse blows. I can look on wiring diagrams and tell you which items are powered from the fuse in question.

Asko T700 dryer won't run


Hello,

Have you checked the 15amp fuses which are located at the back of your Asko dryer ?

That is where I`d start. They are at the back as I said located next to where the power cord exit`s the unit. Look for 2 small round slotted caps ( these are the fuse holders/hubs ) either black or gray in color.

With a flat screwdriver fitted in the slot of the fuse hub, turn it a half turn counter clockwise an it should drop out...though it may need to be pulled out if it`s stuck in the holder part.

Replace with a 15amp "slow blow" ( the only difference is the slow blow are filled with sand and aren`t transparent glass tubes but rather gray or white in color ) if the fuse is blown.


Hope that is helpful. If so please rate the solution accordingly, if not let me know what you find or if you require further assitance.

Thank`s for visiting fixya today and good luck.

Hi,I have a Sears 2 hp air compressor,model #919.176320 and it will fill,when empty.It will not refill when I have any preasure in the tank.It should fill,then refill when the air presure drops to 60...


It's trying to come on too soon. 60 PSI is too much pressure for it to run. Reset the pressure switch to kick in around 40 PSI. That will do it.

After the tank fills with air for the first time and air is left out, the commpressor pump will kick on and kick off the outlet curcuit breaker. Why would it do this?
