Check the operation of the relief valve. This is usually located near the regulator and gauge and has a small ring that you fit your finger in and pull outward. When you do so, compressed air should be released. If this is stuck or cant be released, there is your problem. It is quite dangerous to let the tank reach pressures beyond that allowed by the relief gauge. Usually 120-150 PSI.

APE08AJM1 - GE 115 Volt Portable Electronic Room Air Conditioner - Compressor not kicking on. Manual indicates it's triggering the overload relay? How do I solve this?


There is a start capacitor near the compressor that may be bad. If the capacitor tests OK then the compressor is locked up. A service man can try to get it going with a kicker capacitor but there is no guarantee that that will work.

My pacr10 blows air but compressor wont kick on


sounds like a blockage in the refrigerant circuit, the compressor is shutting down, protecting itself. possibly the compressor is overheating, possibly it's overcharged.

A/c runs cool for about 20 minutes and then does not cool anymore. keeps running but does not cool.


Is the compressor still running or has it kicked out? The normal problem is that the unit is low on freon and the compressor is not cooling because of this. If the compressor is kicking off an feels hot to the touch but the inside coil is sweating when the compressor kicked off the compressor is going bad. On an outside chance the thermostat can be going out if you turn it to off or all the way down you should hear an audible click and again when you turn it up normally its good if the click is audible. good luck

My GE portable a/c will cool when I first turn it on. The compressor kicks on and it cools fine, but after it runs a few minutes it kicks off and never cools again. The fan just runs. It does not appear...


I would say that if it starts cooling when it's turned on, then it has freon in it. Sounds more like it's kicking off on high head pressure, meaning the condenser is not getting cooled, head pressure builds up then a safety limit switch shuts it down to save the compressor from burning out.. Is there a condenser fan maybe not operating? or are the condenser coils clogged up with dirt?

Your compressor has an electrical protector that is heat activated. It will disengage the compressor under several scenarios. Most likely the unit filter is dirty or the unit has lost refrigerant. Also assure that the unit has adequate electricity supply,no extention cords or undersized wiring.

It looks like there might be a knob which sets the max air pressure coming from the compressor. If there is one, this may have been turned down.

There are usually 3 pressure settings on an electric compressor. Compressor max, pressure switch cut on, and pressure switch cut off.
