To start, check your condencer fan and make sure the condenser is clean.After that you will need a technician with instruments. If the switching off is constant, after approx. every 15 min.it could be switching off on high pressure.

I have an HP DV9000 that often either boots to a split screen with the same images on the top and bottom or it will boot to a single screen and suddenly change to the split screen. When in split screen...


could be the inverter its inside the monitor at the bottom they cost about 10.00 could also be the integrated video which needs to be reflowed some repair shops charge up to 150.00 which is crazy i do that all the time for 50.00 its easy also there is a sensor that can go out and the laptop thinks the lid is shut again about 10.00

I have a electra split system which has has developed a fault which is that when it is switched on the compressor and cooling runs for about 15 seconds and then switches off, if left it will try again...


Several things will cause this, the first I can think of is a bad capacitor for the
fan on the outdoor unit
(If the capacitor fails the fan will not run and the
compressor will go into thermal overload almost immediately and restart after
the internal thermal limit resets itself).

You should shut off system until it can be checked out.

You may also have low refrigerant, if this happens then the "Low pressure switch" will
shut the unit off as well.
Third would be possibly the contactor which controls the compressor, especially if a bug
gets between the contacts or they are burnt.
I would recommend having the unit serviced by a licensed technician .
Hope this helps.

Anyone know where I can get a fan motor for the indoor unit of my centrex CTAR65GW split system air conditioner. i think the motor may be generic for most of the cheaper split air conditioners. Denis


Hi,
I buy alot of those motors through www.grainger.com

match up the hp, rpm, shaft size, mounting, voltage, etc... this can take a bit, but you will find a motor for partically anything there...

Not blowing cold air


Sounds to me like your compressor is not operating, first check the filter to make sure its not pluged up, if thats not it, you will need a qualified service tech to come a diagnos it for you, but sounds to me like the compressor is bad, hope that helps

Unit shuts itself off after 10 -15 minutes


Protect mode will kick in whenever a fault is detected.

You get the unit not powering up, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that is the protection switch that keeps shutting down the unit.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

Internal fault.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

Regards.
