Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Air conditioner constantly shuts off

\015 One day I smelled smoke coming from the AC outlet. I have a extention cord coming from the unit into the AC outlet because it isn't long enough. I immediately move the plug to another outlet. Now the AC runs for about 10 minutes than breaks the circuit breaker. Can anyone help me resolve this issue?\015

Answers :

Are you saying that you have plugged the aircon into an extension lead then into a socket in the wall and that the smoke was coming from the extension lead part. If so I would suggest checking all your plug in connections and chenge the extension lead. A quick way to check the compressor is a cause is to put the aircon to fan only and see if it fails to trip out the circuit breaker, then put it back onto cooling and see if it trips (if it does on cooling then its a good possibility). Most aircons have a three to five minute time delay for starting the compressor to protect against power fluctuations (ie power cuts). Hope this s of some help.

The electricity went off in our neighborhood yesterday. It came back on. I do not run my central air this time of year so the air conditioner is in off position.

I have a goodman furnace and air conditioner. When the air conditioner is running, it runs for about 10-15 minutes, then shuts off for about 5 seconds, then restarts.

Resetting the breaker, or depressing the reset switch in the thermostat will start the furnace running again. A third p

I have a new motorhome and the air conditioner only reduces the inside air temperature by 2 degrees on a hot day. e.g. outside air temp 26 degrees inside temp 29 degrees. After 2 hours of a/c running with door and windows shut inside air temp is 27 degrees. Dealer says the air conditioner is ok as air coming out of ducts is 3 degrees as required. I believe a larger a/c is required.

I have a Coleman Central Air/Heat System. This year, the outside compressor (or whatever it is called) is shutting off within minutes of the air conditioner coming on. This is resulting in the home never cooling down. I can reset the system by shutting the air off inside the home for a few minutes and the outside compressor comes back on, but again, only for a minute or two, and the unit only blows what seems to be room temperature air.
