On that problem I would first turn off the power source to the unit. Check the Capacitor, thermostat, windings between all the 3 terminals on the compressor.And then see if any terminal on the compressor shows a short of the winding to the outer housing. There are so many other possibilities, because I don't see your make or model, so this is a suggestion for the solution. Thanks, Sea Breeze.

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.

Why my A/C condenser fan won t stop running, dodge ram 2008


To clarify, the compressor and fan will run in defrost mode. The compressor and fan runs to dry out the air blowing onto the windshield.
Now if the condenser fan runs in "heat" you may have a problem with the fan relay or the main controller.

Uaka 024JAZ condensing unit comes on, fan and compressor start up, fan remains on, compressor shuts off in appx 1 min , pressures appear to be headed to normal op range. I did not see a run cap for this...


This unit uses a dual run capacitor. There is no start capacitor involved.

The dual run capacitor is possible weak, also check all the electrical connections for tight fitting connections with can cause motor/compressor overheating.
To test a capacitor properly you need the proper test meter capable of reading uf readings(within 6% of the stated rating on the capacitor) "C" common to "F" fan and "C" to "Herm" terminal, the higher rating for compressor and the lower for the outdoor fan. [(example= 25/3uf 370v) 25uf=compressor, 3uf=fan motor.]

The unit turns on, but the mode light (cool and fan) blinks and the compressor does not seem to turn on The fan works normally as does the sweep function.


possible bad capicitor/compressor-comp. start relay. placing a voltage sniffer at wires going to comp. will verify if compressor is getting power.

Does not make cold, main compartment or freezer, replaced "relay/overload" capacitor (?) but still cycles/clicks off and on - lights on and motors run but no cold.


if clicking off and on I would say . the relay is working but the compressor is not starting . if comp will not start ( no cold ) the fan by the comp runs when the comp runs / but if comp does not start the fan does not know .. if comp runs the lines one is small and other is larger . the small one gets hot enough not to touch.it . not hot no cool . I think you have a compressor problem .. **** hope this helps . get back with me .. //mm

Fan is working on fridge, temperature is set correctly but fridge not cooling. the compressor boiling hot.


is the compressor fan working and the freezer fan working also? if you have a meter you can do a amp draw on the comp.,it sounds like the comp. being so hot your coils under the frig. are real dirty or the comp is about to lra out(burn out) let me know more-mike
