Try checking the codes. You can do this at part stores like auto zone for free. It might be the maf sensor or if it says lean o2 sensor than it's the fuel filter.

Check to make sure the coils underneath the refrigerator are clean- that's the first thing to check:

  1. Unplug refrigerator
  2. Remove base grille if necessary.
  3. Use a refrigerator coil brush (part number PM14X51) to brush any dust, dirt, pet hair, etc. from the coils. Note: The condenser brush, PM14X51, is 27 1/2 inches long, 12" of which are bristles. Purchase a GE part online
  4. Sweep or vacuum up any dirt, dust, pet hair, etc. on the floor.
  5. Replace grille.
  6. Plug refrigerator back in to the wall receptacle.
Here is what to check concerning the condenser fan:
Next thing to check is the thermostat as it explains here:
The refrigerator never cycles off The thermostat cycles the refrigerator on and off. The refrigerator normally runs as long as the temperature inside the refrigerator is higher than the set temperature. If the temperature inside the refrigerator is cold enough and the thermostat still does not cycle off, the thermostat may be defective. If so, you need to replace it, because it cannot be repaired. If the thermostat is not defective, you may have a problem with the sealed (refrigerant) system, in which case you should contact a qualified appliance repair technician. Here's how to check a thermostat: There is the chance that the unit could be low on refrigerant, in which case it would run constantly, struggling to keep things cold. The condenser fan is controlled by the control board- check to make sure it's running, since the fan itself could be bad. As one of the blogs stated, make sure your evaporator coils aren't iced over (due to a faulty defrost system). So start with the condenser fan- make sure it's running. Check the condenser coils to make sure they're clean. Check the evaporator coils to make sure they're not iced over (indicating a bad defrost circuit). Move the thermostat to see if it makes any difference, and check it if it doesn't have any effect on things. Of course, the dreaded control board could be the culprit, or low refrigerant. If you're handy with a voltmeter, you might be able to determine if the control board is good or bad. Here is a website with your model's diagrams and parts lists: Good luck, and hope this helps get it fixed!

From what you've described I'm inclined to believe that your fuel pump may be going bad and/or a clogged fuel filter. If you had a bad fuel pump relay it would not crank. If you had a restricted injector/s your vehicle would still start normally but you could have a rough idle or hesitation while accelerating. You can have your fuel system pressure tested to try and check for a bad fuel pump, but if the problem is coming and going it may not show up if your not currently experiencing that problem. Try the filter first, try running a tank of high test and a bottle of isoheet and gumout fuel injector cleaner to see if you notice any difference first. The next step I'd take would be to replace the fuel pump after that

I noticed the steel braided hose which is the intake for the air supply is very hot to the touch. Like extremely hot and was just wondering if this was normal? I removed the air filter and tried running...

I believe the hose you are referring to is the "Aftercooler" that connects from the head (outlet) of the compressor head to the air tank. Under normal use, the aftercooler will get very hot. Air is heated when compressed and will heat up this hose and the inlet area of the tank.

How to change Emglo air compressor from 220v to 110v. Compressor is running at half speed when plugged into standard wall outlet. I bought the compressor new in the early "90's" and since then...

Hi Pete,
On the side of the motor on the label should be a wiring diagram. The diagram will tell you how to wire fro high 220v and low 110v ...
If the nameplate is single voltage only then the motor cannot be rewired for the lower voltage...
Also check the motor RPM nameplate as compared to the may have a 1725 motor and the newer ones a 3450 motor...that would give them double the RPM's if the gearing or pulley sizes are the if you have the right voltage and the RPM's of the motor are the lower, then you possibly could change the pulley sizes to speed up the compressor...

Lots to check and think about...

Bad capacitor (or close to going) when you look on the motor is there a cap on top of it that looks like a dome? if it is still under warranty then call Dewalt and see if they will fix it for you.

I have a dewalt emglo electric compressor around 6 months old with only 5hrs of use. i find as soon as the temp drops a few degrees like early morning summer weather it will not start it will turn over...

I have a gas engine powered DeWalt compressor. I don't know about yours, but is there an unloader that you have to switch when you are starting?
Next, did you inform DeWalt, this unit is almost new(ly rebuilt) and they should take some responsibility for it.
You know, it could be that the motor has a starting problem, (bad capacitor, bad start winding system).
