Compressor D130C-L1Z

Model code 1018

Factory No. 4ACWA00135

If you go around back..Feel the compressor..Is it hot to the touch ..?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes. If I unplug and let it sit for a while then replug in, it starts and runs then shuts down a few minutes later and the round compressor? is quite hot. It does not continue to run at this stage.

Ok great..This means there is a problem with the sealed system..Which means the system either has a leak or the compressor is faulty..If it has a leak then the leak must first be repaired..In either case it is a expensive fix..Most often more than half the cost of a new unit..
