Believe it or not, it's probably just dirty! With the unit off, apply a spray cleaner or a detergent solution, which can consist of water and a little dish or liquid laundry detergent, to wet the condenser coils, and spray clean with your garden hose. If it;s a window unit, it's probably best to take it out of the window for cleaning.

At night its shuts down when the therm is satisfied,but trys to restart right away and when it does start it shuts down right away and just keeps doing this


The thermostat has a differential built into the temperature sensing operation. The differential is normally a degree or more. If the stat shuts down at 72 degrees it should not start the unit again until the temperature in the room reaches 73. If the AC runs and cools properly until it shuts down, I would check the thermostat. The AC can not restart immediately after it shuts off because the pressures in the system are too high at the compressor. It takes a few minutes for the pressures equalize allowing the compressor to start. If the stat tells the unit to start under high pressure, the compressor will shut down on overload. It will start and run after the pressure falls enough for the compressor motor to run.

Chokes down after running about 30 minutes. Will sometimes restart after several attempts and minutes but usually chokes down again within few minutes. I have changed the air and fuel filter, spark blug,...


There are few things that will make the engine run rich, one is the fuel inlet needle in the carb leaking, and the other is a blockage in the exhaust or spark arrestor.

The unit runs Ok for a few minutes and then shuts down.


Does it do this on just battery power or with an external power source? If on battery poer, then the battery if defective.
