Indoor unit comes on for 5 seconds and then shuts down

\015 When the indoor unit is turned on the operation light blinks twince and then shuts off why is this?\015

Answers :

Then there is wrong with your room air thermistor or the freeze up sensor, if you have a multitester you can check the resistance of the sensor. The resistance is 10kohms.
"Off" the circuit breaker and then "on" again then start the unit .

Compressor problem? My outdoor unit comes on with the fan blowing just fine. Then I hear a buzzing sound for about 2-3 seconds which I believe is the compressor trying to come on. (Incidentally, a couple of lights inside the house seem to dim at the same time that the buzzing sound occurs.) The buzzing sound reoccurs every couple minutes while the outdoor unit fan and the indoor blower both continue to run. I have shut down both the outdoor and indoor units for a couple hours and tried restarti

I have a 1 year old LG LMU245HV with 3 indoor units (a 12K, and 2 9K btu). This is the second heating season and I have noticed that when any one unit is on the temperature coming out of the unit is not very warm. This however changes when I run a second or the 3rd unit. When I run 2 or more units there is plenty of heat coming out. What would cause this? Any ideas would be appreciated.

Electrical Schematic?? Hi, Here is our problem:  We have this unit installed in our desert vacation home in the wine "cellar" room, at times when we are not here, the electricity has gone out (even just for a second) and this unit shuts down and doesn't come back on until we come here and physically turn it on again. We are looking to bypass this so we don't have wine ruined while we are away.  How can we get this unit to come back on by itself?   Another problem is: this unit is installed in su

My indoor fan comes on but the compressor does not. I checked voltage, fuses and wiring and everything was ok. When I depressed the contact (single pole) the compressor would run and make cold air. When I did it a second time it held in and ran so we cooled the house down. Thinking the contact was bad I got a new one but it wouldn't come on but would run if I held it in and would shut off if I let off of it.. It has control voltage to the coil on the contact. The contact just wont kick in or sta

Burnham Oil fired boiler-burner unit Model # RS/112. Probably over 25 years old. The unit would run for 20 sec. or so and cut off. A little smoke was coming out of the little hole. Took it apart and cleaned the flue tubes/ turbulators etc. It was pretty dirty. Some of the tubes were completely blocked w soot. Cleaned the electric eye. Put it back together and it would still shut off after 20 seconds. Took out the gun assembly and adjusted the electrodes to specs. It appeared one of the electrode

Panasonic Invertor I have two units they work fine, but the remote for one has gone blank. I have the screen go blank on occassions on the second remote but i give it a tap and the screen comes back up. The Model number for the indoor unit is CS-E18HKR and the outside CU-E18HKR. I'm assuming they require batteries but there doesn't appear to be anyway to do so. Please help.

I have a Sanyo Split System the indoor unit is a KHS0921 and the outdoor unit is a CH0921. When i first turn the indoor unit ON the fan will run for a few minutes and then go off. The outdoor unit never comes ON when there is a cll for cooling. The only way to get the fan to come ON again is to turn the breaker OFF and then back ON. The Operation loght will come ON when the fan is running but it will start flashing when the fan goes OFF. What should i look for?
