Hello, It sounds like your unit is going into defrost mode. Heat pumps struggle below 35 degrees F. Make sure the coils are clean so the unit will work at peak performance. They do make a heat strip to put in these units to help with cold temperatures. If you need more help just ask. Good luck.

My unit was cooling yesterday and stopped today i put my gage it was 0psig i found a leak on the condenser fix leak and notice the condenser was so hot and not running not even humming.What next iam an...

Air conditioner compressor will not start. When power is applied to the air conditioning outdoor unit the fan starts, but you hear a sound like the compressor is trying to start, "UGGG"..., for about 5 to 10 seconds and then all you hear is the outdoor condenser fan run. The compressor is locked and will not start. What is happening is the compressor is trying to start, but because the compressor motor is locked it tries to start for a few seconds and then because of the high amperage being drawn goes off on internal overload. The internal overload protects the compressor windings from overheating and burning up. I see this many times during the start of the air conditioning season.

Thermo set "heat" and "Auto

Check the fan relay. These relays are used to cut the fan on and off when the thermostat is set in the air conditioning or heating mode or when you move the thermostat to the "Fan On" position. The low voltage usually the green thermostat wire is wired to terminal #1. The low voltage common wire to terminal #3. One line voltage wire is attached to terminal #4. The high speed blower wire usually black is attached to terminal #2. When the thermostat calls for air conditioning or "Fan On" the 24 volt coil is energized, the terminals 4 and 2 close. This causes the fan to come on in high speed. When your home cools down and the thermostat cuts the air conditioner off, the low voltage coil terminals 1 & 3 are denergized, and the fan goes off. Sometimes these little relays stick which causes the fan to run all the time or will not make good contact, which causes the fan to not run in the "Fan On" or air conditioning mode.

Air condition unit will not cut back on after being cut off. It has to set for a while before it will cut back on, and the period of time is getting longer each time it does it, and it doesn't happen...

Sounds like you're trying to re-start the AC too quick.

Since the compressor has to 'equalize it's pressures' before it will start (after being cut off) - you will always need to give it plenty of time (after cutting it off) before turning it back on.

If you are referring to 'automatic' operation - it is the thermostat that 'cycles' the unit and this is determined by the 'rise and fall' of temperature.

Thermostats are notorious for being a little out of adjustment and as long as the AC is cooling the space I would not worry too much about it.

If it gets to be a big problem - you will probably need to change out the thermostat, but I would have a Service Tech check out the complete operation of the air conditioner.

good luck!

Air Con cuts in and out and so does cooling fan

I have a 2008.5 Mazda 3 GS Sport and when you turn the air flow selector to windows or windows/floor, the air condition will turn on automatically. (Can't turn it off.)

Air conditioning

My guess would be from what you have described is that the refrigerant pressure might be low and is tripping the low pressure cut off that protects the compressor.
