Question about Sharp Cv-p12lx 11500 Btu Portable Air Conditioner Ac

1 Answer

Air conditioner shudders, stops blowing cold, then resets every 5 mins

1) The air conditioner starts just fine, blowing cold. 2) Then, about a minute later, it shudders loudly and shakes, the cold air stops 3) There is a short period (15 sec) of loud, high fan blasting 4) Then it is no longer blowing cold, just fan, for 5 minutes or so 5) Then the cold kicks in again, and the cycle repeats. Needless to say, 1m cold out of 5 isn't doing much to cool the room. I have checked, and cleaned, all filters. I know this model of air conditioner has an internal reset to turn off the condenser, so it must be getting triggered. Can anyone guess what would cause it to shudder all of a sudden and trigger the condenser shutdown??? Thanks!

SOURCE: sharp AF-M808X air conditioner. suddenly

Simple test: the thermostat in your unit is electromechanical - unplug the unit from the mains, take it out and measure the resistance between the 2 electrical contacts, if it doesn't goes to near 0 when you turn it even a little bit then it's defective and it will have to be replaced.
If the resistance does indeed goes to near 0 then the defect is in the AC system. Another simple test: open the casing of the unit and put your hand directly on the compressor; now turn the thermostat button. If it doesn't vibrate then the starting capacitor of the compressor has failed and it will have to be replaced with a similar one.If it vibrates then the cooling circuit has got a leak and all the fluid has been lost. For that you will have to call a pro that will solder the leak shut and refill the circuit with the appropriate fluid - only he will have it, it's not sold on the customer market.

It blows cold air for 5 min. and the it blows cool air for 15 min. the room warms up . Why does it stops blowing cold air continuasly???? The thermostat was disconectet on purpose so it coul clow cold air...


See if you can reposition the thermister on the facing of the evaporator coils. That could be it or the thermister might be bad. They don't use copper/mercury sensing bulbs these days. They use these cheap thermisters.

My air conditioner is on but not blowing cold air and buzzes


The compressor is not starting. The buzzing noise you hear is the compressor trying to start and then the thermal overload trips. When it cools it will try to start again. Could be a bad capacitor or the compressor is bad. These two units need to be tested to see which one is bad. A capacitor is inexpensive. If it's the compressor it will be cheaper to buy a new AC.

Air conditioner compressor runs for about 1-2 min, then cuts off


well when u have outages the voltage drops obviously, the one that suffers are the capacitors the capacitor for the compressor might need to change, change it with the same capacity as the old one example if labels say 55 microfarady ( mf ) ( 55 mf ) get one of the same I am not saying it is a 55 mf capacitor vary depending on motor and brand. So check the label

Fan cutting on and off every 5 mins


The only thing that is going to but the fan off is the thermostat. When the fan stops, immediately check the thermostat on the wall. See is there is power between the B terminal and the GH terminal. If none, then replace the thermostat. If there is, then replace the control board in the AC. That means that the fan relay on the printed circuit board is weak.

Weather king central air conditioner


You have done a good job under the circumstances. It could be a bad start/run capacitor as well. It carries a lot of amperage so I suggest hiring a technician to check the capacitor and the motor.
