Wont cool The compressor cuts on and blows super cool air but in a few moments, it shuts down and blows warm air. after a few moments the compressor kicks back on and it blows super cold air.

I am having the same issue, the exhaust fan that blows the hot air out of the home is most likely not working. I am having a hard time finding a replacement fan motor

SOURCE: air is not cold

the fact that the compressor light is coming on tells me power is being sent to the compressor.

if that is true then there is really only 2 possibilities.

1) you have a wire (or maybe 2) burnt away from the terminal(s). To repair this is fairly simple for the service tech but somewhat complex for the inexperienced, so I won't go into here - but if this is the problem you can probably (with a little expert help) fix it yourself.

2) the compressor is not starting even though voltage is being applied to it's terminals. Usually this is caused by the compressor being 'electrically open,' and there is nothing that can be done except to change out the compressor.

good luck!

Hi there,
Have you checked the Freon level?
If the compressor kicks in but there is no cold air coming out of the a/c the next thing to check would be the Freon level.
If the Freon level is not sufficient or has depleted then it needs to be refilled. Check what type of Freon you compressor is using the most generic is R-14 or R-12.
Check if there's a cap for the condenser coils because some units does not have it.
To refill you must make a hole to the coil and use some hose with a pressurize small compressor to transfer the CFC from the Freon Tank.
You would need to have a gauge so you could measure the amount of Freon that you will transfer.
Once the transfer is successful you would need to use an acetylene torch and a metal patch to close the hole that you made and make sure that it is sealed so the Freon won't leak.
Hope this helps!

Air cinditioning wont stay on, it switches to heat and wont shut off

What do you mean when you say it wont shut off? is it blowing hot air or do you just feel a lite flow of hot air even if you have the settings to cold?

If this is the problem that you always feel hot air at low flow and the ac goes to hot air then i would say one of two things, first if you have the selector to cold and you feel hot air then there may be a problem with the blend door, this door move to allow hot or cold air, the door may be broken or just a bad motor that controls it. keep in mind if the ac system shuts down for any reason the air then will be warm, it will be about the same temp as outside and maybe a little hotter.

this problem almost sounds like the ac compressor shuts off and then you are getting the outside air which is hot, there are many reasons for the compressor to shut off, it could be the compressor clutch heating up and disengaging , this would be due to a bad compressor clutch.

another reason is the fans are not working, the best thing to do is when the system starts to blow warm check and see if the compressor is running, start engine and look at the front of compressor, with ac off the front of it will not move, and then with ac on the front will spin, check it out and let me know, if it blows warm air and ac is not working then it may be compressor problem but if you are getting warm air and the compressor is spinning then it may be a door problem.

This is hard to check with out testing the system, so i listed a few things to check and let me know the out come. also the ac blows cold for how long before it gets hot air blowing out of the vents, good day.

On a 2001 chevy silverado 2500HD the ac blows cool in idle or slow speeds but while driving the air gets warm and then cool warm and then cool etc. i cant tell if the compressor is cutting on and off

You might be low on freon if not compressor going bad to see if your compressor is going on and off turn on a/c on max have some one hold gas peddle down around 1500 rpm or just at a small fast idleif compressor goes on and off recharge it most likely one or two cans will be enough

9yr old model Maytag window a/c - just blows cold for 30 seconds - then blows warm. Was perfect until this happened. Is it worth fixing? What would be the usual fix for this?

The compressor is shutting off on overload after running for a few seconds. The overload cools down and starts the compressor running again until the overload heats up and shuts the unit off again.

Unit does not cool. Original unit was replaced because of defective compressor. Replacement unit worked in store but now does not cool and alternates blowing cool and warm air.

Is this a window unit? Sounds like the compressor may be cutting on and off. That would cause the alternating air temp you are feeling. Make sure the condenser fan is running. If it isn't running head pressure will build up on the compressor until it shuts down. Then the pressure will equalize and the compressor will kick on again. Also check your filters and the condenser coil to make sure it is clean. Let me know what you find.

When compressor on the blower keeps trying to shut down.

You may have a bad capacitor. But you may nee a service tech to check it out. There is only so far you can go without knowledge of Air Conditioning. Ask for free estimate and you will know upfront what the cost is . RUS

Is the outside unit running? if so can you feel warmer than outside air blowing from outside fan? If not your system may have a leak and pressures low. You can also check the piping to and from the unit larger one should be cold small one should be warm
