Possible Causes


Compressor cannot start.
1. The fuse is burnt.
2. Malfunction of start-up of electrical equipment.
3. Ill connection of start-up of button.
4. Ill connection of circuit.
5. Voltage is too low.
6. Malfunction of motor.
7. Malfunction of air end. (Abnormal noise and feel part of the air end too hot.)
8. Lack phases of power supply.
9. Overload of fan motor.
Ask qualified electrician for overhaul and replacement.
Running current is high. The compressor stops by itself.
(Alarm due to excessive hot of Air end )
1. Voltage is too low.
