SOURCE: cooling

Check if the condensar ( outside fan unit) is getting enough free ventilation. IF there is no free air flow you will mostlikely be triping the unit due to short cycling. Ie the unit is pulling its own discherge air causing the compressor to trip due to high back pressure

SOURCE: compressor keep running in off position

you could have a relay or contactor inside the unit welded closed, therefore compressor will keep operating when unit is off. replace compressor contactor.

Things in freezer melt and re-freeze


Your condenser fan motor at the compressor is either filthy or needing to be replaced. Air flow is pulled over compressor to keep it at a good operating temp. If the fan cannot pull air across compressor it will over heat and shut down on overload. Imagine working in yard on hot summer day and wearing a dust mask over your mouth and nose. Your body shuts down more needing more rest. Same thing with refrigerators, they have to be able to breathe properly also.

Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.

Maybe is it not compressor fault?


If you are 100% sure the compressor is not shutting down, then the expansion valve is bad, assuming that model has an expansion valve.

If a functional compressor stops producing cooling, then the refrigerant flow has stopped. Without refrigerant flow, heat transfer does not happen, and the attempt to pressurize the gas causes the compressor to get very hot.

It's possible that the valves in the compressor are shot, as well. If it's a thermostatic expansion valve, try applying heat to it to coax some flow through it.

Outdoor A/C unit fan


If the fan and compressor are shutting off. its possible its cycling on a low pressure switch. probably low on freon.

or you have a low ambient kit to keep pressures up during low outdoor temps while ac is running just the fan will shut off, however thats not a typical thing to have a residential system

No cold air. compressor works for seconds and shuts off


Replace the compressor, if it quits running after a few seconds, it is more than likely your compressor causing the problems

Cycling compressor


The pressure switch will shut off when the set pressure is obtained. Usually about 100 to 120 lbs. If the compressor stops at lower pressure than mentioned you may try to adjust the pressure by looking under the switch cover for adjustment screw/nut.(no more than a few turns) Increase pressure by increasing spring tension. Quick cycling is usually caused by air leaking from tubing, drain valve or check valve. After compressor shuts off unplug it from the outlet and spray soapy water on all fittings and drain valve. Repair leaks and test for quick cycling, however the compressor should reach 100-120 before shutting off. Some small compressors have a thermal reset but that usually takes a few minutes to reset. Pressure switch is defective if it shuts off before setting mentioned. Enjoy
