Fedders Model No. A7U12W2A-A, 12000btu airconditioner. The unit has been cooling satisfactorily for two to three years. Today the unit was cooling and suddenly there were a couple of reasonably loud knocks and the compressor stopped cooling. The fan continues to run. In about five minutes the cooling comes back on. The compressor runs for abut four minutes and shuts down. Earlier today we had a power dip without losing all power.


Hi, the power dip when translated means low current actually affected the relay starter which is situated beside the compressor. Now the relay starter works and stop intermittently which is why the Compressor cools whenever it works and does not cool ... Fedders Air Conditioners

I found the Bryant furnace 395cav048090 calling for heat but not operational. I shut off power to the unit and switched power back on and the unit started its ignition sequence. With power on the blower starts as a result of thermostat calling for heat from the unit and after a minute goes on to second phase of ignition with exhaust blower motor initiated. During this phase gas is being brought to the burner that you can smell however burner does not ignite gas. Unit continued with this opera


If you do not see a bright light before the gas releases, your ignitor is probably out. If you disconnect, you should measure ohms from the two ignitor leads. If you do not measure any, it is open and will not work. You will usually see a mark of whi ... Bryant Air Conditioners

I had power blink off for a couple of seconds and then came back on. The Amana air conditioner RCC30A2E seem to be On but no cool air was blowing. I check breaker it was ok. I preceeded to check thermostat, I notice 24v was not present and by bypassing the thermostat the air conditioner still was not blowing cool air. I went outside and notice the fan was not rotating.


Check for fuses in the 24v wiring. Was anything running outside? The 24V X-former is located in the air handling unit. check for voltage on the air handler. if present, check output voltage at X-former. You should have 24V ... Air Conditioners

My Delonghi AC unit keeps turning off after a couple minutes. It completely loses all power. I will then unplug it and then plug it back in and it will restart. It is also not pumping out cold air like it used to. The AC will kick on for a bit but then it kicks off and just goes into fan mode

My 8 yr old Amana heat pump, model RHE48A2D with Honeywell progammable thermostat in heat mode has the blower running constantly. When there is a 6 to 8 degree differnce between room temp and thermostat setting compressor runs as it should, the closer it gets to thermostat setting, it will run about 30 seconds, blower continues to run until getting just cool air, about 5 minutes, compressor kicks back on for 30 sec., continues to do this, thermostat shows it has reached set temperature,


Hi, It sounds to me like what you are describing is, that when it is 6 to 8 or so degree difference then the stat says, unit operates as it is supposed to but then before it satisfies the t-stat, it shuts the compressor down long enough to start cool ... Air Conditioners

My ac unit does not have power to the thermostat. There is 200 volts going into the transformer and 24 volts going out. There is 24 volts on the back side of a terminal with thermostat wire running to the thermostat and the outside AC unit. However, no power on the front side of this terminal and therefor no power to the thermostat.


Please exercise due caution in checking voltages in live circuits!24 volts sourced by the transformer, through the thermostat, then through the contactor (turns on power to compressor/fan) and returns to the transformer, If the thermostat ... Air Conditioners

It should run until it reaches the temperature setting on the thermostat. It just keeps recycling. There is no visible power setting switch that I'm aware of.


This is a symptom of the system being low on freon. The system will have a low press switch, and as the the suction press drops the switch will brake and stop the compressor, then as the press rises it will start up again. Needs more freon, r134 I be ... Dometic Air Conditioners

My Dometic rooftop rv ac runs for approximately 5 minutes. During this time the fan blows cold air. However, after 5 or so minutes, the unit stops completely except for a humming sound.

I have a GE PTAC I have been working on. Our units are run by a wireless wall thermostat which sure doesnt help matters. Anyway at first I had nothing then got power lighting up on the circuit boards for the wireless. No power going to either the heater or the compressor. Changed out a couple circuit boards from spare parts and got power going to those now but still doesnt operate. I've checked the transformer and the capacitor. Checked the fuse and changed out thermister. Nothing. Any ideas

I have a 1997 rodeo. The a/c will come on and stay on for a few minutes. Blows cold air. After a few minutes, the ac shuts off.If I shut off the a/c button for a couple of minutes and turn it back on,the ac starts working again. This problem is more common in the afternoon when it's hot.I had the system evacuated and re-charged. Someone told me it might be a radiator problem. The truck does'nt run hot. I was also told it could be an a/c thermo switch.


It sounds like it is your high pressure switch located on the high side supply line of your AC. When the temperature is hot, it is harder for the condenser to cool off the freon flowing through it causing the pressure in the system to rise. Also, c ... Air Conditioners

The fan runs but the compressor won't come on. I checked the thermostat and the a/c wire has 7.5 volts when thermostat is not calling for a/c but when you set thermostat for a/c the power goes away from a/c wire? It is 59 degrees here does the comp have a sensor that won't let it start with this low a temp?
