What you are looking for is called an unloader tube. I have used cooper water line for a refrigerator ice maker to replace the plastic. Its a little hard to work with because it is not as flexable as the plastic stuff, but it works the same and is not as likely to were out as fast. You can get the cooper line from any hardware store.

Noma a/c cq120 makes noise in compressor area and casing is hot to touch. Is compressor going? Is it worth to repair or buy new. I'm guessing this unit is 4 years old or more


Possible Causes There are several reasons for a compressor to run too hot, including high compression ratio, high return gas temperatures, and lack of external cooling.High compression ratios are the result of either lower than normal suction pressures or higher than normal discharge pressures. Changes in suction pressure will affect the compression ratio more rapidly than changes in the discharge pressure. For this reason, it is important to keep the suction pressure at its highest possible value.
Causes of low suction pressure can include incorrect sizing of components, misadjusted or defective metering devices (TXVs), loss of refrigerant charge, plugged driers or strainers, and excessive suction line pressure drop.
Although not as sensitive to change as the suction pressure, the discharge pressure can still greatly affect the compression ratio. Keeping the discharge pressure within normal operating conditions is still important.
Causes of high discharge pressure can include dirty condensing coils, undersized discharge line, a blockage or recirculation of condenser air, erratic condenser fan operation, refrigerant overcharge, noncondensibles in the system, and an undersized condenser.
Many larger refrigeration systems with electronic controllers will automatically monitor the temperature of the discharge line and will send out an alarm to alert the owner or service contractor of a potential problem. Regardless of how the discharge line temperature is monitored, it should always be checked as part of any service to a refrigeration system.
A technician should also check the discharge line temperature within 6 inches from the outlet of the compressor. Any temperature above 225 degrees should be investigated and the cause found and repaired.

Gas leaking from my tank switch


Use compression barb fittings on the pressure side with fuel injection line NOT REGULAR FUEL HOSE THE REGULAR HOSE WONT HOLD UP TO THE PRESSURE. The return line can be regular fuel line because of the low pressure.

I have a GE Profile Water Heater Model #SE40M12AA01.


I recommend safety changes to prevent ruptured water heater and assorted leaks.
135 degree hot water.
Maybe replace TP valve if it is dripping.
Drip pan under water heater with 3/4" drain line to outside.
Expansion tank on incoming cold water line to absorb pressure build-up, and prolong life of tank and plumbing.

Here's why:

1) Yes you can have scalding hot water.

2) I recommend 135 degrees since that will burn the evil right out of ya. And generally kill clothes washing bacteria.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-adjust-water-heater-temperature.html

3) 150 is dangerous and can seriously burn skin in 1.5 seconds. Not safe around children and elderly.

4) Temperature settings on electric water heater are approximate, since thermostats are calibrated approximately, and read temperature through tank wall.

5) Also if you want to increase amount of hot water for high-consumption household, then setting tank temperature upward is one solution since more cold water is mixed with hot, so amount of hot inside tank goes further.

6) High temperature can cause TP valve to release water.
TP valve is pressure-temperature safety valve. Do NOT cap off.
Rating should be 125 psi and 180 degrees ... but all things water heater are approximate, and TP valves need replacement now and then.
It is not recommended by water heater manufactures to use 150 psi TP valve when water heater came with 125 psi. Rating shows in small print on end of TP. New TP valves sold at local hardware. Let tank cool before installing new one.

7) Higher temperature and high pressure can rupture tank.
Pressure over 80 psi shortens life of water heaters and plumbing fixtures. Put BTG100 pressure gauge on water heater drain valve to check pressure.

8) You need a drip pan with 3/4" drain line to outdoors, or to drain vent line, to prevent flood caused by ruptured water heater.
Turn water heater off when going on vacation.
Inspect water heater each 6 months.
Drip pan available at local home center or hardware:
http://waterheatertimer.org/9-ways-to-save-with-water-heater.html#drip

9) Heated water expands and puts pressure on tank and pipes.
Water does not compress... so when water gets hotter it expands against tank wall and against pipes.
Especially in closed system (check valve present) when system is without expansion tank.
Expansion tank is installed on incoming cold water line.

Evinrude e-tech lost power


The first thing is fuel delivery. Check and fuel filter for crud, next if thats ok check your fuel line for loose connections that would allow air into the line. ( is your pump ball hard?) if not check to see if anti siphon valves in the line which are on either side of the ball. To check this problem remove tthe line from the tank and the engine, and with the end that came from the engine held up high have some one let the pressure off the end that went into tank and then while doing that u lret the pressure off the connector that went into engine. Resusts are if valves are working Very little gas will flow from the line. GAS BE CAREFUL!!!. Next is cloged carb , then possibly electrical failure in high speed circuits. Check compression and clean or replace plugs is another couple ides. Chas

I have a air compressure with a square d 9013fhg44mix pressure switch. The problem is where the 1/4 air line goes, this valve leaks when ever the compressor is off. Once the compress is on it is off and...


The 1/4" line is very necessary and there are no adjustments on it. When the tank reaches full the pressure switch turns off the power and opens the valve to the 1/4" line to bleed off pressure from the air pump and feed tube so the motor can turn over the next time the tank drops to the kick in pressure. Every time the pressure switch turns the motor off a small amount of air should be heard coming out of the bottom of the switch for three to five seconds and then it should stop completely. If air continues to leak out of the switch by the 1/4" line, you have a bad tank check valve. The tank check valve is the brass fitting at the other end of the 1/4" line where the feed tube from the air pump goes into the tank. It keeps air in the tank after the pressure switch turns off the motor. Easy to replace, find the one you need for your model compressor.

Steps replacing a 1985 grand marquis fuel pump for first time alone thanks


See Figure 1
Two different electric fuel pump configurations were used on fuel injected models. One consists of a low pressure in-tank boost pump in conjunction with an external, frame-mounted high pressure pump. The low pressure pump is used to provide pressurized fuel to the inlet of the high pressure pump and helps prevent noise and heating problems. System pressure is controlled by a pressure regulator mounted on the engine.
The other configuration consists of an in-tank high pressure pump which does not utilize a boost pump.

Leak in power steering, not sure if bad lines or pump. how to determine where problem is


You'll need to look at the lines from under the passenger side of the car. Often, it's a high pressure line. They have compressed fitting on the hoses that often leak, due to the high pressure.

Compressor stops then leaks down to low setting


That little copper line is an unloading line, to bleed compressed air out of the compressor head so that the motor can more easily start the compressor. Pressor switch should be threadded into top of air tank, and the unloading valve is built into the side of the switch. When the tank reaches the high pressure setting the switch disconnects power to the motor and opens the unloading valve at the same time. The unloading valve should be connected to the compressor discharge line through a check valve with an unloading valve port upstream of the check valve. These valves are usually threaded into the top of the air tank as well. Sounds to me like your valve was leaking and someone bypassed it.
