Air conditioner turns on in the inside but not the outside

The air conditioner turns on every few mintues in the inside but after while the one on the outside doesn't turn on. When the inside is off I hear a low humming sound from the air consitioner. I disconnected the capacitor after turning off the power and a mintue later I heard a click.

The click you heard was an internal overload in the compressor. Your a/c shouldn't cycle on and off every few minutes. The short cycling causes the compressor to over heat. You need to figure out why you have such a short run time with your a/c. Check the thermostat.

Cooling doesn't stay on


The outside and inside coils may need cleaning. Clogged coils cause excess pressures and heat of the freon that can cause safety switches to shut er down. Eveen a faulty power relay in the outside unit.Otherwise you may need a serviceman to locate the cause.

My amana ac unit over heats the circuit breaker and trips it off after running for about 15 minutes. It will not blow the fuses on the outside disconnect next to the unit outside.


What you described 'shouldn't' be happening - "if" the outside fuses and the inside breaker are sized correctly for your air conditioner.

I would make sure that the fuses in your outside disconnect were the proper size (for your AC), and that the inside breaker was of suffienct size to handle the air conditioner, and whatever else might be on the circuit.

Note: You would never want the 'outside fuse size' to be bigger than the inside breaker.

For example: 50 amp fuses in the outside disconnect and a 40 amp inside breaker is a no-no.

Often, for whatever reasons - someone will put larger fuses in the outside disconnect than what is called for.

When this happens the inside breaker is the only safety on the AC.

The problem is - for whatever reason - your inside breaker should not be tripping off.

It's likely that the AC may be on a inside breaker "that also has other things i.e. dryer, electric range or Refrigerator," and therefore any of these components 'including' the air conditioner could be causing the inside breaker to 'trip.'

One way to check this would be to 'un-plug' whatever else you had on the inside breaker - and then run your air conditioner and see if the breaker trips. Let's say you have the refrigerator and the air conditioner on the same inside breaker. You suspect the refrigerator is causing the inside breaker to trip - so you unplug it - and then turn on the air conditioner. "Now" it does not trip the inside breaker and assuming you have the proper fuses in the outside disconnect - you could safely say the air conditioner is ok - but - the refrigerator might be on the blink.

It's also possible that you just have too much on the inside breaker and you need to plug the refrigerator in to another outlet.

Still, if it was me - I think I would really think 'hard' about calling a Service Tech out - and let him/her diagnose the problem.

Hope this helps.

Inside unit turns on, outside doesn't


Could be a wiring problem or a lack of refrigerant. All you can do is professionally have the unit checked and serviced.

My air conditioner is not running on the outside but in the inside. temperature states 85 inside


If you turn down the thermostat to the air conditioner and the unit outside does not come on, you could have a few different issues. The usual suspect is a start capcitor. When you adjust your thermostat you should hear a click from the outside unit. If you hear a click but nothing happens, check the power disconnect out there by the unit. I recently had to replace mine because it finally just wore out. It can also be the contactor, the fan itself or the actual compressor.
