AC is off but compressor cycles periodically

My RV rooftop AC compressor cycles about 45-60 seconds every 5 mintues or so even though the thermostat is off and it is not trying to cool the interior?

    Aaron, Thanks very much. Looks like it is time to visit the RV repair shop. I was hoping it might be something I could do myself, but I'm not comfortable messing around the inside of the unit.

Most likely your compressor contact is stuck closed, and will need to be replaced. if the fan also runs when the compressor comes on you may have a short between the t-stat and unit. hope this helps.

My domestic rv ac unit reaches the temp setpoint and the compressor shuts off but not the fan, it just keeps on running. Is this normal or should the fan shut off also?


Set fan setting to auto and not high or low setting. Fan will cycle with compressor after setting set to auto or " au" if a digital thermostat.

Dometic AC cycles on and off


sounds like you don't have enough of a charge in the system of "free-on". that would make the a/c cycle and cycle to try and keep the pressure up and would also contribute to the lines frosting and freezing

Thermostat slow to turn AC compressor on. fan comes on but takes 5 min. before compressor comes on


Most a/c's have a 5 minute delay before the compressor turns on and they will do the same when changing from cooling or heating to cooling.

AC/Heatpump units cycle numerous times blowing ambient air.


If the compressor never kicks in, I would check the start capacitor, thermostat and the compressor windings. Most times the start capacitor is defective. Some window air conditioners the fan will run while the compressor stop through the thermostat switch. If the thermostat switch is bad every thing runs except the compressor. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Remove the cover and turn the fan by hand ( with the power off ! ) See what it is hitting
