Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Cools for a limited time only before unit must be reset

\015 The unit I bought was set up just a week ago and after my a/c guy fixed all the error messages that were coming up the unit still doesn't work properly.The A/C will seem to be operating normally until anywhere between 4-6 hours later the unit while still sensing that it needs to cool the room only blows air at the same temp. as the room.This is easily fixed by turning the unit on and then off again but this certainly won't work for me as I'm using the unit to cool a server room and as such is left unattended for long periods of time...\015

Answers :

If the unit was set up a week ago the technician should warranty his work and come back and take care of the problem for you, not knowing what was set up and how, it's hard to say if it's a problem with the unit or the control (t'stat or programming if it's a programmable t'stat).
If this unit was new one and setting was done accurately,It sem that the ac is tripping off due to several factors in case of tripping off the compressor there is a hi pressure that building up on hi side that could not expand normally on expansion valve,there's clogging of some impurities or substance such as air in the system,this will develop a high current to your compressor exceeding to the rated current of unit,resulting to trip off the ac.You can check this on taking the operating current while the unit while is running using clamp ammeter the current will register and compared this to rated current that specified in the compressor manual or the compressor casing it was tag there.Or check again the set up sequence at the remote control the variation of thermostat setting.

I have 2 Frigidaire window a/c units, model# fam18eq2a1. The landlord tells me they are brand new. Both units have the same symptoms: about 30% of the time they power on and function normally. The rest of the time nothing happens when you hit the power button. After checking the appliance plug in to make sure is plugged in, I then hit the reset button, afterwhich the digital display lights up completely, beeps, and then usually goes dead, although 1 out of 15 times it will power on and cool f

I have a dometic duo therm rooftop a/c on my camper. On initial startup, the unit performs fine and cools until it reaches the setpoint of the thermostat. A few minutes later though after the thermostat calls for a restart, the unit will run for a short time and then the breaker will trip. On occassion, I can reset the breaker and get the unit to keep running. This appears to occur randomly though. I'm thinking it's one of the capacitors?


Possible capacitor, but I'd check what else may be drawing power at same time in trailer. Try running everything possible on propane rather than hydro so that there is no other, or minimal current draw besides AC, and see if that makes a difference. ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

Breaker breaks When my Dometic roof a/c compressor comes on during a regular cycle, it sometimes pops the breaker. I replaced the breaker but think there must be some sort of timer in the unit that allows some time to go by before the compressor comes back on. If I reset the breaker and turn the unit back on immediately, it pops again. If I wait about 5 minutes it will run ok. The amps are ok. Help.

For the past two days I have had to reset the main circuit breaker for the outside unit. It appears to be running fine now. I'm just wondering is this an indication of the compressor about to go bad, overuse due to the hot weather we're having or the compressor overheating and becoming temporarily "stuck" until it cools down? I haven been able to check the current draw with my amprobe yet, and the thermostat has a "time-out" feature so I don't think the problem is "short-cycling" Just fishin


Bill, first thing, make sure the outdoor coil isn't stopped up with dirt. This will cause the compressor to overheat and possibly trip the breaker. If you you can check the amp draw that would be good. Look on the data tag on the outside unit and lo ... GE Air Conditioners

I have a 2011 Wildwood travel trailer. I tried to use the air conditioner for the first time this weekend. When I turned the themostat to cool and 65 degrees the air unit "clicked" one time but the unit did not start. I tried various settings but nothing. When I turned the thermostat off the unit clicked one time again. This is a brand new trailer and the first time I tried the air. Any thoughts?
