Remember Me? Page 1 of 2 1 2 Last Jump to page: Results 1 to 13 of Thread: Carrier 48ss. Thread Tools Show Printable Version. I am a donut maker by trade photographer by passion , but I AM looking for some straight answers. I have a Carrier 48 ss on top of my donut shop that was manufactured and installed In '98 it worked well.
Not perfect or even great, but well. From spring of '99 until present I've had to call the same company out, sometimes several times, to get it to work again, only to last the season and that's it.
I guess they won't stand behind thier work or product considering they keep charging me, but is this right? Was there a recall on this unit or something per chance? I've also contacted Carrier about this problem only to be given the run around. Is this model one of those cheap replaceable ones that rattles it self apart after X years? As I stated earlier, I'm not touching it, I'm just looking for some answers. I do thank you for any help you could give me.
It's greatly appreciated. The majority nearly all compressor failures are caused by unresolved system problems. When a compressor is replaced the replacement is sure to fail unless the cause of the initial failure is determined and rectified. I am a factory instructor and one of the classes I teach throughout North America is a class on why compressors fail and how to prevent repeat failures.
The only excuse for a repeat compressor failure is ignorance or lazyness on the part of the technician who replaced your failed compressor. To put it in laymans terms for you nearly every compressor failure is due to a refrigerant flow problem or electrical problem external to the compressor. The key is to be able to analyze the system operation and pin down the exact cause or combination of causes of the failure and then rectify the cause or causes so the replacement does not fail.
Model 48ss ; Serial G I do believe it's a 5 ton. I only have S. And yes, I am a loyal customer, doesn't matter the price Even before I had this Carrier unit put up top, I had been using them for my old way under powered system.
NormChris, thank you for the article and info on compressor failure. The original compressor lasted until April ' Had the second one put in last year, then three days out of 'warranty' it took a nose dive.
I feel this new one is going the same route on much quicker time frame. I guess you could say I'm getting hot under the collar here. Go figure. Re: 48 SS. I agree Norm, some compressors due just go because it was there time, obviously not in this case.
The returned compressor can be checked out for reason of failure since "someone" doesnt know why. Norm theres defects built all the time in commercial equipment and there a fix for it but sometimes it does not get done.
I should print this out and send it to the owner of the company, along with my complaints too. Maybe a certified letter would get his attention? Anyways, I'll catch up on this Sunday. I gotta get some sleep and I have a wedding to shoot tomorrow too. I can't thank you enough for all the info! I can't tell you what a load off my mind this is. Norm, are you telling me that a mechanical motor, compressor that has friction and generates heat cant go bad because of time and age? A compressor cant go bad because an oil pump failed or the rings wore out, I can name 50 reasons for a failure.
Most of the time it is yes, but not all. Page 1 of 2 1 2 Last Jump to page:. Please read this Valves, Regulators, Filters, Etc. All times are GMT The time now is PM. All rights reserved. In fact, every problem job I have gone on to investigate and rectify a repeat failure condition turned out to be a system problem that I was able to rectify.
No further compressor failures occurred after that. Wow, talk about customer loyalty. There is not a single good reason for you to loose compressors this often if you have qualified and educated people performing your work. Compressors are tough. However, they can't survive unresolved system problems.
And, you have them. Compressors never go out just because it is there time, whatever that means. There is always a reason. A refrigerant floodback Refrigerant slugging Flooded starts Loss of lubrication Loss of oil not the same Over voltage or under voltage Voltage or current imbalance Single phasing and the list goes on
