Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

The compressor only works about 15 minutes

\015 Hi all,At home I've an old model of Samsung of 19000 btu, it's of windows.\302\240\302\240 \302\240 A few months ago it was broken, but the technician brought a new compressor and installed it. The air worked very good about four months until the last two weeks.Until now, after switching the equipment on, the compressor cools about 15 minutes without to reach a nice temperature inside the room, after that, the equipment turns the compressor off and doesn't work again for a long time in the night, always for 10-15 minutes if works. I've realized that, after raining, the compressor works for a long period of time. Therefore, before switching the equipment on, I wet the rear condenser with abundant water and it provides the same effect of rain.None of the condensers should be dirty because they were cleaned with pressure water, also the front condenser was cleaned with a pink chemical that left it like a new one.My question is, what's going on with the air if the compressor and the gas is new on it?If you need more details, please ask...Thanks is advance...\015

Answers :

This unit could very well be over charged with gas and when the unit runs for about 15 mins. the pressure gets too high and cuts off on high pressure if your system does that so many times the compressor will get hot and shut off on internal over load, And will not come back on till it cools down. .... Or you may have a kink or restriction in your refrigerant lines somewhere... this would cause your compressor to also run hot and cut off on internal overload.

My unit's compressor will intermittantly stop working. The thermostat seems to keep the intake unit working but since it can't get the temperature down it never shuts off. We have been removing the batteries and letting the thermostat reset for 20 minutes. (thermostat Honeywell RTH23110B). After the reset the compressor will work again but will fault within a day. I am pretty sure that the compressor and fan are functional as if I press the contactor down it begans functioning. I also, to he

I have a Sharp CV10NH Portable Air Conditioner with the same problem as posted by gtkermit on Jun 08, 2010: works fine for a few minutes then compressor turns off and fan continues for a few minutes then compressor kicks in again and cools for a few minutes (cycles about every 5 minutes perhaps.) I have followed all suggestions on page 30 of the manual (as well as the different options for venting, etc.) ms-shop suggested that the thermostat needs to be replaced. How do i do this? Thank you!

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

I have a whirlpool model ACM102xLO that seems to be dying. I cleaned the coils, and the unit seems to operate normally for a few minutes. Fan motor works, compressor motor seems to work. When I checked the amp pull on the fan motor, it falls in the normal range of 1.2A. When the compressor kicks on, the amp pull jumps to around 10 and climbs to a high of 15 or so, then the compressor shuts off and the amps jump to about 25 or 26, before cutting off completely. The amps then drop to the fan motor

You do not say if it is outdoor or indoor fan which operates. However I presume all your filters are clean and the drainpipes are clear. The only other thing you could suspect is the thermostat or air flow sensor. ... LG Air Conditioners

My compressor work for about 8 minutes or so then shuts off. The green light blinks for about 25-30 minutes and then the compressor starts up again. What is the problem?


Because of the long length of time it stays off, my guess is the thermal over load is taking it out. When the compressor goes off, try to touch the top of it. If it is real hot, its probably that. There are several directions to move in from determin ... Comfort-Aire Air Conditioners

Hello there.

Hi,As it is already 5 years old, there could be many problems. Yes, freon is the main fault. Other than this, i would doubt freon leak. These AC's are more prone to freon air. I have no idea whether the repairman checked it for freon air. ... Friedrich WallMaster WS07A10D Air Conditioner

The ac went out on my 1996 firebird 2 years ago I live in GA. I love my car but the heat is killing me. The AC clutch still works if you jump it to take the refrigerant but there is an internal leak because it will work for a minute and then the cold is gone. It sounds like a leak in the compressor? Can I replace the compressor myself or are there pressurized parts that require specialized handling. I have done my own water pump and alternator but this is something much bigger.


Well Changing the AC compressor is not a simple task. There are pressurized pipes and refrigerant gas running in the system. I strongly suggest you get it repaired/replaced by a competant mechanic. ... Air Conditioners

Everstar mpk10cr grinding compressor I think.... Fan works fine, will kick into cool mode (elevated fan level) for a few seconds then it sounds like the compressor has a loose mount or something... sometimes it rattles for a few minutes (and cools) but sometimes it shuts the rattling off as fast as it starts and doesnt really ''cool'' or dehumidify.... Some days its works fine all day, others it just never really gets its ''**** together'' so to speak... Can users recharge the coolant themselve

The PAC-260 runs for a few minutes, then I hear the compressor stop and it spews hot air. Pressing the reset button fixes the issue only to have it be reset again after a few minutes. Air filter is fine, the tubes are setup properly (ie. it is a straight run up and into the window). What am I missing, the reset button is supposed to be used when I figure out what is wrong, but I know it works (sort of) because when it works it still is very cold.

I had to change the compressor of my 2 ton bio-sleep split AC from samsung (6 months old- but stopped working at 5 months). Now when the ac is powered on the compressor starts instantly, without the 3 minute delay. When the indoor unit is switched off with the remote or switch, the compressor continues to run. The only way to shut it off is to shut off the circuit breaker. Help please.

Don't panic, but I have a question about my 40 year old duo therm RV roof top AC. I know, it shouldn't be working, but it does.

This past fall I took the shroud off and cleaned everything and observed the operating system. Again, it starts, runs for a minute or so, than the relay opens. If I push on the relay, it will run again. A friend suggested a
