    all right, maybe i need to spend some more time searching and maybe i'm asking this in the wrong place. I called my local trane guys (slc) and the first thing they tell me is that the slide valve is not rebuildable, so i give them the SB # and then they tell me that the rebuild kit is no longer available. the guys in slc are good guys obviosly just not familiar with this problem. so i quess what I am asking is if anyone has a part list they can send me. thanks. chhb100tka0r119ahnn

    The slide valve is not rebuildable in the field but that's not your problem. The piston is more than likely your problem.

    This is a tossable compressor like all small screws. They are just not worth the expense to try and fool with. York DX compressors had problems as well with the slide valve, they had a rework that would work sometimes and sometimes not. Just saveyourself the headaches and get a new compressor.
    Sorry I know that is not what you want to hear.

    So you would change the compressor just because it has a burnt unload solenoid, or a blocked pill filter ??
    Good call ,,,, are you on commission for selling parts ?

    That statement is simply not true. There are many relatively inexpensive repairs that can be easily made on these compressors. The slide valve piston rebuild is a 4 hour job and the parts are minimal, $XXX.XX. A new compressor is $XX,XXX.XX.

    Only if the nut on the piston end of the shaft comes undone , if it unscrews at the other end .....your screwed , then its a whole different ball game ...been there done that .

    So what does this guy do?
    UA 100

    It takes three people to do anything around here. Two do the work, one explains to the crowd of people who showed up when they seen smoke and flames.

    And if the nut at the piston end does not come undone, it's still servicable but
    more of a PITA. There is a SB on that.
