    Sorry to hear that. Try not to laugh too loud when the new compressor doesn't fix it.

    Is it a Bristol compressor?

    If it is a Bristol then it could be a possibility.

    Maybe the factory will cover compressor under warranty. It has 5 year parts on compressor .

    An old trick, try adding some weight to weigh down the discharge line

    Update...new compressor is in.

    Noise is still there LOL.

    Man, this is a weird one. I pulled out the guts of the quick connects too.

    Oddly when i had the quick connects apart, the check valve in the discharge line would randomly vibrate and make weird noises.

    Im still at a loss somewhat, could it really be the headmaster?
    I hear nothing up at the condenser but i can feel the vibration in the discharge line up there.
    Down in the head, as soon as the head pressure climbs above 240 and the fan kicks on, the noise goes away.

    In harvest, as the head pressure dives to around 180, the noise shows up again.

    Do you have a project in mind for the good compressor you are soon going to own?

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.

    Should have changed the Headmaster, Compressor and harvest valve all at the same time. You would have come out shining like a star.LOL

    I know...we are coming up with a game plan. We are lucky the compressor is under parts warranty still.

    I don’t know why, but the headmasters in older Scotsman machines would make some terrible noises, like a foghorn. A new headmaster would make the noise go away.

    I tell ya man

    We had a 16’ open case in a supermarket with smoked meat in it.

    The smoked meat case would make the most godawful noise, sounded like a loud siren going off in the store.

    After three visits by three guys and about 15 man hours we finally traced it down to the A8 hold back valve.

    If you were standing in the motor room with your ear to the A8 it would be quiet, but somehow there was some noise that resonated through the liquid line out to the sales floor.

    This story proves nothing crucial except to say finding the cause of a noise is a pain in the ass.
