My ac fan works but the compressor won,t kick on

The fan on the condenser or air handler? Check the capacitor on the condenser. If you don't have a meter that does uf you can take the amp draws of the comp multiplied by 2650, divided by the voltage between com and herm on the cap. If cap is good be sure compressor is not off on thermal overload, cool with water hose, careful to not soak electrical. If not hot and cap good , try hard start kit. If still no compressor ,ohm compressor, com to start plus com to run should equal start to run on ohms. Hope this helps.

I have a Carrier Air V air conditioner on which the compressor won't start. You can hear it try repeatedly, but no luck. The fan does work.

Hooked up new 4 wire fan 2 condensor with a new 2 cap fan runs fine but no compresor?installed as was told with nothing runnng 2 the new cap but the brown wires but compresor isnt kicking on

The compressor could be bad there is two ways to tell with an ohm meter check each lead off the compressor and to ground for continunity or a megometer . You can always try a hard start kit. It is a super capicator that multiplies starting voltage. Have you checked all connections? There might be a low\ high Pressure switch in the referigent lines if that is bad it won't allow the unit to start. Also is it a heat pump or straight a/c the heat pumps have circut control boards in the unit that control everything

Fedders 208/230 split system w/ dual cap , compresser runs but fan wont unless you give it a push , compresser won't restart if relay is hot

All kinds of stutt happens when you dont have a condensor fan motor. You need to change the run cap on the motor.

How do you add refrigerant.

If you follow the lines coming from the A/c compressor, you will find a red cap on one line and a blue cap on the other line. The blue cap is the suction side. Remove the blue cap. You can buy recharge kits at the parts store that have a line and tap included. You just couple the line there, open the valve on the freon can and start the engine. Run the a/c on high. Be careful not to overcharge the system. If the belts start squeeling, that will indicate too much freon in the system and a high presure situation.

Compressor cycles on for about 16 seconds and off for about 1 or 2 minutes

your compressor is bad or the start switch is bad. the start switch is on the compressor follow the wires to the compressor there will be a plastic cap held on by a flat spring wire remove the cap the starter is about as big around as a nickel and will be connected to one of the 3 compressor studs. If its the compressor you will be better off replacing the unit.

When unit starts the condensor fan only comes, not compressor

You need a new fan motor and the correct capacitors for your sydtem I think they are 35 or 45 5 cap. Try a hard start kit on compressor. Are you sure you have the cap wired correctly?Russ

Compressor tries to kick in but then stops.

it is a hard start compacitor, the unit is not supposed to have three compacitors.
