    Re: Phill broke again (No pressure rise error)

    Could that sound come from no gas getting to compressor?

      No that doesn't sound good. Sorry to hear about your troubles. Almost sounds like the motor is not engaging with the compressor and just free spinning with no resistance. But I am no expert.

      Good Luck

        The sound I hear in the video is the fan starting. It sounds loud. If it is a reman Phill there will be that indicated on the ID tag with the date of reman. Check that there is not a wire or something contacting the fan blade.

        Make sure the gas is turned on to the machine as that will throw this error. It sounds like you had it go into an alarm condition indicating a a possible leak indicated by not being able to shut the machine down. Alarm shuts down the compressor and operates the fan continuously to exhaust any gas from the room. Did it do this when filling the hose while disconnected from the vehicle? If so, separate the nozzle at the breakaway by stepping on the nozzle end and giving a good yank on the hose. Try the fill again. Still error? From the video it looks like the hose is stretched out quite a bit. Even though it is a 12' hose it is recommended by FM not to stretch it over 7'. Long stretching of the hose can cause the internal line to break and leak. The gas from such a leak will flow inside the yellow jacket and exit inside the machine and the gas sensor will trigger the alarm.

        You may be only seeing the initial error code, there could be more.

          Re: Phill broken - Now what?

          I commented in the other thread on this.

          Yes lakewood, that is not a normal start sound. The fan comes on initially and that is what I hear. The compressor starts after. I think he can verify that it is a reman by the tag on it. FM has discontinued the reman program recently and the parts are available from the distributors for field/shop service. Go to www.brcfuelmaker.it and click on the dealers tab to search for your nearest distributor.
