1222 Wait Before Restarting a Compressor - Air Conditioning - Compressor -

Image Text: Cross section > Low torque compressors require similar pressures on the suction and discharge sides at startup > once they get going, a significant pressure difference is created > if the compressor is turned off and immediately restarted, the compressor can be damaged by trying to push against 225 PSI of pressure > if you wait 5 minutes before restarting, the excess pressure can be equalized through the capillary tube > 225 PSI > high temperature high pressure Freon gas > discharge side > Freon flow > motor rotor > piston > oil > low temperature low pressure Freon gas > 70 PSI > suction side > crankcase heater
