Take cover off compressor electrics and check start device ok and not burnt out. if compressor is warm to touch, indicates faulty compressor. take all electrics off compressor and check for continuity thro windings.
also check for power to compressor - if no power, indicates fault in board

Wine cooler does not stay cool


Do only if you are properly trained on live circuits.. Do at your own risk. Check the compressor's capacitor and the relay. Is the compressor getting juice?

Duo Therm A/C (2009 Sabre RV) won't shut off


bad compressor relay on control board. The relay is not opening the circuit, allowing the compressor to stay running when unit is turned off. This overheats the compressor and opens a thermal disk shutting the compressor off. When thermal disk cools down, the compressor restarts under load and trips breaker.

My True TD 50 18 beer cooler does not cool beers


If you hear a clicking noise coming from the compressor there is about a 80% chance that the compressor is dead. But you'll have to call someone out to be sure.
If the fan motor behind the grill is running (condenser fan) then the compressor should be running and vice versa. If the compressor is hot as a pistol and clicking and the fan motor is not working then it may cool down if you shut it off and you might just have a bad fan motor. With power turned off the condenser fan motor should freely spin. Compressor have a 5 year warranty from the manufacture not including labor and additional materials. Hope this helps.

The compressor should turn on after it cools. It shuts down if it overheats to prevent damage/fire. The compressor itself could be bad but more than likely the fan is dead.

Hi, two days ago I bought a Danby Premiere DPAC13009 portable AC unit. It worked on the first day reducing the temperature from 32C in the room to 26C in a few hours. Although now there is no cold air...


Comperssors have a thermal overload. If there is a starting problem or low on freon the conpressor will shut down until cooled off. Try restarting and listen to compressor.

Refer warming / no compressor / no fan


If the fan doesn't work , the compressor overheats and shut off by the overload protection.I would replace the fan which will cost no more than $30.

Dometic RV A/c compressor runs every 10 minutes


Looks like the fan is jammed or a coil has burnt out, resulting in heat which when detected by the thermostat, passes the compressor to star, but since the fan isn't working it manages to drop the temp near the sensor causing the compressor to shut down & restart quickly. Get the fan repaired/replaced at the earliest & don't use the m/c till then....sodeep

Compressor runs, overheats and shuts down..fan does not run...


I have had the same problem. Following the advice of someone on these pages I opened the machine up and checked the fan with a meter. On my model (the 404) it has two settings so two leads; one seemed okay, the other was dead. I checked the circuit where the fan connector plugs in and I got that both speed settings were supplying plenty of juice. Apparently the fan motor is dead. A replacement runs $79 at http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/. I ordered one; we'll see what happens.

Compressor hums and shuts off


This sounds very much like a compressor failure. unplug the refrigerator and check the condenser for cleanliness. After cleaning the condenser and allowing the compressor to cool, plug it back in and listen for the same sounds. If the compressor was overheated it should restart after it cools. If it does not restart the compressor could be seized. Check the compressor warranty against the age of the refrigerator.
