Re: Climma compressor turning off randomly

John Clanton



I have had the same symptoms, and think I have resolved mine.  I found that the power leads going into the sealed compressor unit were just a little loose.  I am not on the boat now to look at it, but my recollection is there is one lead that is secured with a bolt, and perhaps two leads that are spade & socket connections.  I removed all connections, treated with Corrosion X, slightly crimped the socket connections, then reconnected everything.  I had to use needle nose pliers to re-attach the spade/socket connections as the sockets were very tight.


I have not had a problem since then.  I assume, at least in my case, that the less-than-perfect connections were creating too much resistance and that the compressor shut itself down.


I hope this helps.
