When you are diagnosing a potential compressor problem, you need to measure its amp draw to get a correct assessment of its vital signs.The best way to determine the correct amperage draw for a particular compressor is by referring to the rating chart for that compressor.
Compressor manufacturers publish a rating chart for each compressor they manufacture. The compressor chart will list the correct amp draw for the compressor under its various operating conditions.
To use the chart, the technician must know the evaporating temperature, condensing temperature, and voltage applied to the compressor. A technician can determine the correct amp draw for the compressor and use that information to accurately troubleshoot the compressor and the system. With the use of the Internet this information is now easier to obtain. If you have questions regarding your compressor give us a call today: 239-596-5855.
