    DO you use a garden hose to more quickly cool off an overheated hermetic compressor? SWIM was discussing a hypothetical situation where this would be done and wondered if there would be a risk of thermally shocking components or if it would be all good man.

    Use the shower feature on your garden hose nozzle.
    This way it tricks your compressor into just thinking it is raining.
    But so long as its not a wood compressor cuz those always be catchin on fire.

    computer terminals used to have water cooling systems with water and fans. coil a small water hose around it with fans blowing on it constantly to keep it cool. insulate it yet the fans need to breath so punch holes in the insulation casing that fits around it and the cooling setup.

    if that doesn't work, drive it off a cliff.

    Cooling off an overheated hermetic compressor with a garden hose is the way to go. Before doing this, make sure you pull the disconnect to kill the power. Get the water to cover as much of the compressor as you can with as low of a flow as possible. Depending on how many times the unit has cycled on the overload will determine how hot it is and how long it will take to cool off. With any luck, it might only take 15 minutes or less but I've waited for an hour before they've reset.

    Without using a meter to ohm out the windings or a clamp meter or gauges to see if it starts OK again you will just have to let the hose run and then listen if it starts OK again (after removing hose). If the unit restarts you then need to determine why it overheated. The compressor could be locked up never to run again. Your run capacitor may be bad. Your start components might be bad or start components may be needed to be added because of an old tired compressor. (I've added start boosters and had compressors still run for years after.) You may also be low on freon as the returning freon cools the compressor.

    Good luck!
