Air conditioner not working
you have a problem with your switch. the contact for the compressor is making only at speed 1 and goes off when you choose 2 to 4. trace the wires that went to your switch and if you have an ohmeter, you will find 6 wires comes out of the switch, one for the source, four for the speed if you have four speed and last for the compressor. check first if you can identify the common wire and chk continuity from the common wire to number 1 ,2,3 and 4. then chk the last wire which is the compressor that it should have continuity all the while from 1 to 4. if it has only at 1 and not to 2,3 and 4. then there is your problem, if you can open up the switch, then it may need contacts cleaning or contacts repair. i hope i was able to help.
anothere thing, try to wiggle the handle of the switch and observe if the copmressor would run as you wiggle it. this would even support my theory that you have a broken switch.
