Cooling fan won't come on when I turn on the AC


Your bigger problem is the compressor not kicking in. The cooling fan is not coming on because there is not enough high side pressure to turn the fan on. I would start by checking power to the compressor, fuses and relays would be inspect. Check to make sure there is the proper charge of refridegerant in the system.

Why won't my compressor stay running


Does it run at a low speed to start but then just quits, or goes back to low speed? Some compressors have a starting winding in the motor to get it running, then as it speeds up it kicks out the starting winding and goes to the normal run winding. I am thinking that the run winding may be bad. Or else you have a bad contact in the pressure switch and the compressor kicks on but the contact arcs and loses connection sometimes. The difference would be if the motors always does the same thing in about the same time it would be the motor problem. But is the compressor runs and then all of a sudden stops, sometimes in a minute, sometimes five minutes, I would look at the pressure switch.

A/C Compressor won't turn on Can jump compressor from battery and compressor comes on & cools. Hi pressure switch checks out ok and 12 volts going to hi pressure switch no voltage to compressor


the high pressure switch kicks the compressor off when the pressure rises, the low pressure switch kicks it on, check that switch, unplug the wire and use a continuity meter to see if the switch functions, also check for power getting to the plug itself

Motor hums but won't kick in


Hi simpsonruth1..
In the back of the compressor motor you will see a fan, remove the plastic cover to get to it..
Once you have the plastic cover removed and the fan exposed, plug the compressor in and spin the fan with your fingers...be quick as the fan could cut your fingers if you do not get them out of the way..
If the compressor starts working, then the start capacitor is bad on the compressor...if it does not run then you have motor troubles, either replace the motor or get it rewound.

The air conditioning in my 1994 toyota pickup all of a sudden stopped working the compressor won't kick on but the pulley turns, does that mean i need a new compressor?


The air conditioning system has a pressure switch that won't let the compressor engage if the refrigerant is too low. You seem to have some sort of leak ... if something slow then one of the
refill and lube/seal kits from the auto parts store should get you going. Get one with a gauge so you don't over charge. Obviously if a major leak then repairs are in order.

Why won't my air conditioner compressor kick in


Based on the information you posted, I would say there is a problem with the Freon. Call your service company for repair. This job requires special tools and expertise not normally available to the handyman.

thanks for your question

Air condition compressor won;t kick in


Most likely a loss of refrigerant ( freon ) in the system. The A/C compressor uses a low pressure switch as a SAFETY to insure it wont turn on without freon in the system. Hope this helps.
