Compressor will not turn on,

The temp in the house went from 68 to 75 in about 45 mins, had no notice that there was a problem. Compressor was hot, have tried to hard start it and tested all wires, nothing will get the compressor to start.

My 2002 TB a/c works for 20 min. Then does not. Checked , no leaks, clutch turns, condenser clicks until blowing hot air, replaced low pressure switch


Something to check because this has happened to me.....Make sure you have enough coolant in the radiator/overflow tank. IF the engine is running hot, the thermal switch on the AC compressor will turn it off to protect the compressor from overheating and damaging it. Don't go by the guage in the dash, it's usless. Hook up a scan tool and get the exact temp. Shouldn't be over 210 which is normal operating temp.

I own a Fogel Fridge Model # VR-17-RE-PR Recently


Richard,
It is important to know if the compressor itself is running. If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load otself is bad the compressor will not run. Best way to tell is via gauges but I doubt your frig has ports. Check to see if your compressor is really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run. The fact your fan is running TYPICALLY means the thermostat is calling for lower temps and the fan/compressor kick in together.

Check the relay on the compressor. Pull it off and shake it. If it rattles, it is bad.

Daleb870, Compressors on referigators run hot to the touch. You are experinceing a couple diffrent issues. First off 0 and 36 is a very ideal temp. The compressor and tubing are most likely hotter than normal as it was trying to cool down a fridge that was house temperature. After the fridge runs for a while and the load on the fridge is equalized the tubing will not be quite as hot. It and the compressor will still be very hot to the touch. The compressor its self right aroung 130f. But its normal.

the compressor will run hot,but you should be able to touch it without burning yourself.(when you compress a gas, heat is generated as it turns to liquid and when it expands back to a gas it absorbs heat,the principal of a fridge...)

Really sounds like the compressor isn't coming on. Go on top of camper and take the housing off. Now then engage the air conditioner and feel the compressor. Touch the copper lines to feel any temp. change. Now then if it isn't coming on look for the capacitor. Silver looking can that is the item to check. They are duel purpose they run the fan and the compressor. Unplug the electricity and remove the capacitor remembering the wires and were they went. Now take to parts house and they will be glad to check it. Should only cost about 15 bucks for new one. Get the same rated size. be good to go. ken

You should try to un-plug the freezer and let it stand up-right over night to re-settle the freon back down inside of the compressor.

The compressor should normally get hot if it is doing it's job right, and there is a starter for the compressor motor (usually it looks like a large capacitor) that could have failed, or the defrost timer (if it has one) could be stuck, and you should be able to see the small dial on the defrost timer slowly turning, and if it does not turn, then replace the defrost timer.

Air conditioner compressor keeps shutting down


This is due to thermal overload,Which can be caused by low oil in the compressor,the fan has stopped running on the unit outside,Dirty coils,or just a worn out compressor.Although this is thermal overload,It has nothing to do with outside temperature,But rather the internal temperature of the compressor itself.
