It may cause it to shut down if it's a safety thing, but it sounds like the compressor's faulty to me.

My LG lp1010snr AC's compressor only seems to run for about 3 minutes on and 3 minutes off, is the compressor being this intermittent normal or is there a problem?

This is called short cycling and it is a problem. It sounds like the compressor is getting hot and shutting off on a thermal overload. When the overload (bi-metal contacts) cool from the compressor being off they close and the compressor begins running again. The refrigerant gas cools your compressor windings, so there may a restriction present or a leak, which would cause the compressor to get hot and open on overload. This is not good for the compressor and will eventually ruin it.

Dear, I have a question that when turn on the air conditioner, it's blowed out the hot air. How can i fix this problem to get it cool again? Thank you

You will need a service call to check for a leak in the coolant or possible bad compressor or compressor starter. If the compressor is coming on and no cool air then the coolant has leaked out and can no longer cool the unit and will need replaced by a licensed technician. If the compressor is not coming on but gets very hot then the compressor is bad, and if it is not coming on and not hot then the starter condenser is bad.

I have a 5,000 btu frigidaire a/c and the compressor won't kick in

Could be the starter contactor, the capacitor or the compressor by itself . You can see the condition of the starter and maybe clean or if it looks bad , must be replaced. The same goes for the capacitor if the compressor is humming. But if the compressor motor is not starting up , please check for starting current with a clamp tester, if it goes higher and stalls then the compressor/motor is faulty.
Might need help to do an overhauling.
I hope this advice helps.

Blowing hot air. Compressor not kicking on. Where

Possibly three things, either a thermostat problem, starter relay/capictor, or a bad overload protector not closing after an overload. The starter relay should be behind a black box located on the side of the compressor.

Turn on the and it begins to cool for about 10

Possibly your compressor overload is bad. A cheap and easy to replace part mounted on top of the compressor.

Be sure that the starting capacitor is good. If the compressor is stuck up the starter power pack may help but sometimes it fail.
