AIR CONDITIONER COMES ON BUT COMPRESSOR NOT KICKING IN TO GIVE COOL AIR. WILL GIVE WARM AIR WHEN TURN ON SOMETIMES BUT NOT ALL THE TIME. TURNED AIR CONDITONER OFF AND ON WITHOUT WAITING THE REQUIRED 3 MINUTES. DID THAT AFFECT THE PERATIO OF THIS UNIT? DID IT CAUSE A OVERLOAD AND IS THERE SOME RESET THAT I CAN USE TO GET IT BACK UP AND RUNNING AGAIN?

I don't think that not waiting the 3 min period would hurt it to the point of not working. my guess is that the thermostat is bad/broken. Another possibility could be the wiring has come loose or been chewed through (depending on where it is stored for the winter) if you are mechanically and technically inclined pop off the cover and have a look always making sure it is unplugged... if you cant resolve the issue and it is under warranty return it to the store if possible or the manufacturer for repair/replacement. also I wouldn't mention not waiting 3 min between power cycles if you send it back as i don't see that being the cause of the problem.

My RC air conditioner (Duotherm) kicks the circuit breaker every time I turn it on. It used to kick the circuit breaker every so often, but lately it kicks it immediately if I try to turn on the AC.


Try replaceing the start or run capacitor to the compressor. If no help you can install a start assist capacitor, it helps to start a tight compressor.

Kenmore AC Model 25370156000 keeps shutting off and on by itself


If you have just installed this unit in your window for the season, you may want to wait a day or so, for everything in the unit to settle, and try again. You make have shaken it up a bit too much. If not.....sounds to me like it is kicking out on high head pressure. This happens when refrigerant gets too low, or there is air in the refrigerant system. There is nothing you can do to solve this problem, except take it to a repair shop. If I am correct what happens is you turn the unit on, and the fan and compressor start simultaneously, then after a few seconds (maybe up to a minute) the compressor kicks off, and the air gets warm, then the compressor kicks on for a few seconds, and we repeat. This is actually a safety mechanism for the compressor motor so it does not run without refrigerant. (That would destroy the pump.)
