The article here will tell you how to test to make sure that the release valve on the air compressor works. Electrical components are housed in a spacious and conveniently located panel. This is a small valve located in the expansion valve. You will want to be careful adding the final charge to this vehicle. This particular valve is usually located below the compressor and is used to control or limit the pressure of the refrigerant. I did some search around the site and I think I can safely conclude that the problem is due to the high pressure that is causing the relief valve to blow. Quality The valve has to be made of high-grade raw materials, so it can withstand pressure and regulate it effectively.
Allow the pressure to build for 30 minutes. As far as it being in the red. I might just put a little in to avoid another failure but be able to get some cool air. . Be careful when buying pre-owned or used parts.
The expansion valve is accessed inside the car just in front of the evaporator. Now I have listed down the following as the possible causes. These parts are inspected for any possible defect and tested to gauge their condition. This made me a little paranoid. However, the inlet restriction does produce excessive discharge pressure and the resultant valve discharge. Electrical components are housed in a spacious and conveniently located panel.
You really need to measure the pressure when it is happening to see if it is indeed abnormally high. Please read for more information. Hondas have little or no reserve in the condensor, and converting them in hot climates can be tricky. Could it be due to a defective expansion valve? If you need a compressor or any other part for your classic car rebuilt, or even just some advice on the proper way to charge the system, give us a call. It's also possible some problem like a stuck relay has caused the compressor to run when it's not supposed to, when the fan wasn't on either.
It will stay closed under all the time all normal operating conditions. This will guarantee product compatibility and reliable performance. Its been fine for 3 months and the fan has not been working at all. I put a new valve in and vacuumed and recharged and was able to get pressures to 200psi before it release again. For the exact location research on Google of buy a Bentley Manual. Could the high pressure be caused due to the compressor running continuously without turning off, which eventually causes the relief valve to blow? I have done air on many cars and have never seen a relief valve. I started the car and shut it off and it blew, the system had very little time to build pressure it had been sitting for 30 min before i started it up and shut it off.
They were happy to do this for free! In other words the system needs to be evacuated and recharged with the correct amount. In case of a compressor trip, except on air conditioning models a Lock-out relay de-energizes the liquid line solenoid valve. There should be some sort of marking on it saying what pressure it is manufactured for. Price Some valves are sold as an assembly, which costs more. It would also be good to wash that oil off so you can tell if any more comes out. Any insight on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Check out our huge catalog of parts and you're sure to find the exact item that you need for any vehicle make or model.
I had used the old method of filling the system until there were no more bubbles in the sight glass-old technology that is not sensitive. Tim ------------------------- To thine own self be true. The pressure relief valve releases when too much pressure has built up in the air compressor tank. Even when exposed to extreme temperatures and other harsh conditions, the valve should be able to function properly and ensure long service life to prevent causing problems with the rest of the system, including the compressor itself. Even if you are lucky enought to put in the exactly correct amount of refrigerant, it will blow out the relief valve when the car is stopped for a few minutes. He says the high pressure is building up because the condenser fan is not running at full speed and that it would need to be replaced. The condenser fan runs fine, the entire system was flushed when the compressor was replaced, the condenser and evaporator itself were cleaned from the outside.
