coke compresser getting hot and shutting off till it cools down amps ok fans running charge ok this just started a week ago#
It's overheating. Either the condenser fan is not working or coming up to speed, or quiting during cycle. Or the condenser is plugged with dirt and no air flow to carry the heat off. Or the machine is in a high ambient air condition.
Clean and inspect the condenser coil with a flaslight shone through the coil for deep blockage. Feel how much air is moving through the coil. Not blowing out the side from fan movement, but traveling back over the compressor. Also touch first the condenser output line (bottom) to see if it is near ambient temp. Then carefully check the input line (top) either with a clamp on thermometer or moisture on your finger. It can boil water and burn you if overheating.
The last possible is that the compressor overload is bad. Only happens if it has been tripping for a long time.
yup, I'll agree with Fixbear, sounds like your compressor is not getting cooling. What is the superheat at the compressor?
Olivero, this machine has a sealed system. We do not go into it unless it has been proven by other means to need brazing in taps and attaching gauges. Not only that, but the machine actually belongs to Coke and they usually service it providing the customer hasn't started buying other brands.. If that is the case the just pick it up if you call.
The OP says "charge ok" how would he know without checking pressure?
Why even ask for help to troubleshoot if he is not doing anything on it, if its like a "warranty" type of thing, he should just do that.
It's the owner and is making wishful thoughts. A tech would know to clean and check air flow.
That is true.. Very true indeed.
I guess it got fixed?
Who know, it's a guest account.
I love wasting my time on this stuff
