Weather King 10AJA6001AH Air Conditioner with bad compressor

Gentle Men:

My Weatherking 10AJA6001AH which is five years old has stopped cooling the house 2 years a go. They it is the compressor. Should I try to fix the
compressor ? If so, how much should I be expecting to spend on the Compressor and the Labor. Or just go and get new Air conditioner.

Thanks

If it is five years old it is either right in or out of warranty a service tech can determine this through the serial number. If not the unit is only a little bit more to replace than the compressor. A replacement compressor is only warrantied for one year verses a unit replacement with five years on the compressor and one year parts and labor.

I have a 1HP/7 1/2 gal. Craftman air compressor( about 20 years old). I was using it to spray paint lawn chairs. The compressor stopped. I was to use it the next morning but for only a short time and it...


1) Check that it is not already at full pressure
2) Check that you have power coming in to the switch (20 year old power cord)
3) Bypass the switch and, briefly, plug it in.
4) Look for a fuse or breaker.
5) With the motor leads disconnected from the switch, check that you have resistance across the motor (0 ohms would be bad).

If you are not comfortable doing any part of this, don't. Check with friends & neighbors for a reputable local appliance repair company.

Compressor stopped working. Air handler works okay. Checked wiring in thermostat-that is fine. Air handler is not frozen up. Breaker shows fine on meter.


Hi,
Check for power out of the contactor...is the condenser fan running?? If so then the compressor should have power...could be the compressor capacitor...or a bad compressor.

Husky Wl6510 air compressor, motor shuts off


One other possibility is that the check valve between the compressor and the tank is letting air flow back against the compressor. Is it having trouble restarting when the pressure lowers to the cut-in pressure? If it doesn't want to start up again, sounding like it's starting against pressure, suspect that valve.

No cold air


hi..
The evaporator coils on the front of the air conditioner get very cold during normal operation of the air conditioner. As the warm moist air in the room comes in contact with the cold evaporator the moisture in the air condenses out of the air and attaches to the evaporator coil. As more and more moisture condenses the water begins to drip down into the base of the air conditioner where it is evaporated to the outside of the house.... so the problem might be in ur evaporator coil.. try replacing the coil if u are an expert or else with the help of technician try to fix it..
Is the thermostat knob turned to the proper setting? Is the compressor motor running? The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It is located inside the air conditioner at the center. Is it humming or making any kind of continuous noise or causing the lights to dim? If it is making a continuous noise, and your air conditioner is still not cooling at all, there may be a serious problem with one or more of these areas:
Compressor
Condenser
Evaporator
These items are not user serviceable. You will need to contact a qualified appliance repair technician to repair these components.

If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the air conditioner there may be a problem in one or more of these areas:

Compressor
Overload and/or relay
Thermostat (Open thermostat)
Burnt wiring
Bad selector switch
Capacitor..
