I turn on the Central A/C unit with the thermostat. The attic fan unit goes on and the system cools the house. When the system shuts down the fan unit shuts off but the outside compressor keeps running. The only way the outside compressor goes now off is when I flip the 240 switch on the main box. This just started. Is it a thermostat problem? Thanks.
Could be a thermostat problem but even more likely the contactor on the unit outside is stuck. In order to change this part you will have to get in to the outdoor unit. The contactor is the automatic switch that the thermostat energizes when the t ... Air Conditioners
Have a 3 year old york central air system, used very little. Turned on --- compressor runs, but fan to cool compressor will not run. What is it? I doubt the fan motor is bad?
Most of the time if the compressor runs but not the fan, it is one of two things either burned/broken wires causing bad connection or bad capacitor. Simply replace capacitor with a capacitor with the EXACT same specifications and you are good to go. ... Air Conditioners

I have a Dometic rooftop Air conditioner in my RV When I turn it to low medium or high the fan run the same speed and when I turn it to AC it will run for about 5 min then the fan will shut off but the compressor keeps running I turn it off for a min or so and everythings comes back on. Turn it to the fan only side and the fan will run for 5 min then shut off a min later it comes back on then back off and on in fan only side.
Bad fan motor I suspect The windings are bad causing the motor to over heat sending the motor into thermal overload. would suggest the replacement of motor. Good Luck on repairs\015\012\015\012Dave ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

5,200 BTU unit. Compressor and fan both work when first turned on, then compressor quits after 5-10 minutes of operation. Won't turn on again even after 5-minute fan-on cool down. Process repeats after AC unit has been turned off for 10 minutes and re-started. Is this worth trying to fix, or should I replace the whole unit?
This could be just a simple fix of cleaning the condenser coils. If semi-clogged, it can cause higher than normal pressures and cause the compressor to cut out on it protector. Check it out. ... Air Conditioners

My fedders aircon compressor does not turn on again whenever its thermostat turns it off. what i had to do is unplugged the power cord and turn it on again to work. i already replaced the capacitor. what i observed is that the big normally open rely does not switch on. maybe a board problem? if i turn it off and turn it on again, only the fan rotates and not the compressor. i had to unplug the power and put it back again for the compressor to run again.
You have a time delay build in on the pc board of 3 minutes. If it takes longer than 3 minutes check your compressor overload protector, Maybe the compressor is overheating, check your coils for proper air flow. ultimately if the compressor checks ok ... Fedders A6X05F2D Air Conditioner
