Re: hisense air conditioner

-If both compressor and fan motor starts and stop, thermostat is the defect.
- If only the compressor check for your outlet no sign of discoloration, check the voltage if normal, check the defective overload protector of the compressor it its external, or compressor itself is defective

Re: hisense air conditioner

Your unit will be low on refrigerant gas. When the A/C unit starts, the suction side of the system pulls the pressure down below the safety cut out pressure and stops the compressor. after a few seconds of compressor not running and therefor not lowering the pressure on the suction side of the system, the pressure will rise again till the safety cutout resets, and it starts all over again. Repair leak, regas system and it should work fine.

White snow.. I had this issue when 2 inside unit electrical lines were hooked up backwards at the compressor. The compressor would pump too often and overcool the inside unit, because it was using the wrong temperature sensor. But you could have a different issue. I'd have them recheck your freon levels, that can cause it to cool too much - should be 120-135psi when it is running, after 5-10 minutes or so. They adjust this for the outside temperature though.

Is the AC set on an energy saving mode. Together with this program if the thermostat is defective the same symtoms can appear. So please check on the thermostat and replace.
Since the compressor is cutting off the cooling does not take place to the extend that is set.

Generater wont stay on cuts on for about 5 minutes then cuts off

either its the contactor,ptc overload relay on the compressor,the motor start/run capacitor or possibly its a little low on R-134A refrigerant and the pressure switches are cutting off the compressor to protect it

Compressor will cut on run a few minutes and shut off hot air

The compressor is probably going out on overload. There may be a small refrigerant leak thus making the compressor run hotter than usual. If there is not enough refrigerant in the system, the compressor will not get the refrigerant back to it to keep it cool. This is a safety feature built into the compressor to keep it from overheating and locking up. You may want to take it to your local appliance store and have it looked at. Most of the time it usually is cheaper to buy a new unit than to pay for just the labor to have them fixed.

Sharp split system, cutting out

If this is running in A/C mode, then I bet you have a low refrigerant charge. The compressor is dropping out on low suction pressure if it's cutting in and out every 5-10 minutes or so. If it takes hours, then it's likely a different problem.

Reply back and I can help you (been in that business for over 30 years.).

Air conditioning

My guess would be from what you have described is that the refrigerant pressure might be low and is tripping the low pressure cut off that protects the compressor.
