T M I ! (too much information) The outside unit , remove the cover to look at the litle round can to see if it exploded, got a buldge from flat on the top or bottom of it or just swollen on the top or bottom. If ok then check the wires on the compressor to see if they all have a good connections. If not the fan or the compressor don,t work then check to see if you have 240 volts to the contactor, or 24 volts to close the contactor.! thank-you-very-much!

Amana AC not working blower will come on but compressor will not any ideas?


compressor may be leaking. and you are losing Freon, Have a HVAC tech come and check compressor for leaks.That is probably why the compressor is not working. Also make sure the filter is not dirty and plugged up, that would overheat the compressor, shutting it down.

It is not cold. The fan works but when the cold air should come on it doesnt. You can hear it trying to kick on for a moment but it doesnt, it just keeps blowing as a fan. Thanks for any help. I would even...


If compressor is not shorted out to the ground and between each leg of compressor multimeter reads resistance You could try to install 3 N 1 hard start kit. But most likely compressor is weak, be prepared to replace compressor soon. Here is my situation on this compressor - everything was running, but compressor. I check for short and resistance on windings - everything shows that its a good compressor. Installed Supco 3n1 kit. Unfortunately it did not help - need a new compressor.

Compressor works but compressor fan does not


It is possible the capacitor has gone bad, cause, possibly a power surge. Suggest replacing capacitor first and see if problem happens again then I would change fan motor and capacitor. Good luck on your repairs

Please help our ac compressor wont come on


Hi, did you change, capacitor for compressor too. check compressor overload switch,(relay) normally located on compressor terminals, (where you connect wires to compressor) that's the device that goes klix when compressor goes to start, could be faulty, or maybe low voltage from your mains(house panel) check line voltage, with digital volt meter, some compressor won't start if voltage drops to low, yes fan will work, could also be, your compressor has a lock rotor, (hard start), you can buy a compressor hard start kit, from appliance store, and try to start compressor, or maybe compressor internal winding, are damage, especially now in summer, when you got a lots of voltage drops, check compressor winding, check compressor winding for short circuit, remove cover on compressor, remove 3 wires from compressor terminal, use ohm meter, put one tester lead on copper tubing that's connected to compressor, and next lead to compressor terminal, one by one, if you get beep (continuity) from anyone of those compressor terminal, you got a short- circuit in compressor, you will have to replace compressor, but if there's no short, them try hard- start kit, replace overload relay, you will see it at compressor terminal location, after you remove cover. good luck.

Ac compressor disengages 98 honda crv


Most compressor has a speed sensor to compare with the cranshaft sensor to prevent the compressor locked up.When you raised the RPM, after 15 sec, if the 2 sensors are not in synch then the computer thinks that the compressor is locked up so it disable the cluctch that was why your AC stops working. Check out your Compressor speed sensor. Good luck.

Compressor keep running in off position


you could have a relay or contactor inside the unit welded closed, therefore compressor will keep operating when unit is off. replace compressor contactor.
