    There's enough power going to it. The lights all turn on in front. It is the correct model # too. It will not kick over to blow out cold air. It's kinda along the lines of when your car don't turn over and start.

If your compressor is having trouble starting I would consider replacing the start Capacitor. Some units have dual capacitor 1 for fan and the other for compressor. If you know how to read an ohm meter I can tell you how to test the capacitor and the compressor windings. At this point in time the question is open until you unplug and check each place Just Ask Joe is correct also. I always ask for the model number because that gives me a picture on my end of directing you. Go to my site and read the testing compressor for burn out and at the bottom of page is a movie about how to work and test capacitor's.Sea Breeze

Check to see if there is power getting to the air conditioner. If it is a 110-volt unit, plug a lamp or other device into the same outlet the air conditioner is plugged into. If there's no power, check the fuses or circuit breakers. If there's still no power, you will need to contact a qualified electrician to restore power to the outlet.

If there is power to the appliance but it is still completely dead there may be a problem in one or more of the following areas:

  • Wiring (Inspect for any broken or burnt wiring)

  • Thermostat

  • Compressor

  • Overload and/or relay

  • Selector switch

  • Control board

Cooling fan won't come on when I turn on the AC


Your bigger problem is the compressor not kicking in. The cooling fan is not coming on because there is not enough high side pressure to turn the fan on. I would start by checking power to the compressor, fuses and relays would be inspect. Check to make sure there is the proper charge of refridegerant in the system.

Make sure the fuel pump is kicking on it won't hurt to check the relay but I have never seen one bad yet it could be the plug on the plug on the end of the wires that plugs on the pump this run hot and it burns the ends alot several fuel pumps are replaced because of this make sure you have power at the pump if you can't hear it run it will only stay powered for a few seconds and then kick off. so you might need someone to turn it on while someone checks the power.

A/C Compressor won't turn on Can jump compressor from battery and compressor comes on & cools. Hi pressure switch checks out ok and 12 volts going to hi pressure switch no voltage to compressor


the high pressure switch kicks the compressor off when the pressure rises, the low pressure switch kicks it on, check that switch, unplug the wire and use a continuity meter to see if the switch functions, also check for power getting to the plug itself

I'm tryin to find out if my a/c compressor is out. So I know that the dealer said that I need it charged and I didn't get it done. So lately it has been makin a loud noise and rattlin on the...


You may be having AC problems but that is not what happened when the Steering locked unless the AC is on the same belt as the Power steering unit. That whining you are hearing when you turn is actually the power steering unit being low on fluid or the power steering pump going out. Based on what you have described my guess is that the unit has gone out and needs to be replaced. As far as the AC compressor is concerned, if the unit is low on Freon it will not engage once it gets too low unless the clutch goes out. When you look at the center of the AC compressor when the engine is running and the AC is off you should see the pulley free spinning and the very center of the pulley won't be spinning, that is the clutch Dis-engaged. When you turn the AC on the Clutch should engage and allow the compressor to work. You will hear it kick in and kick out repeatedly if it is low on Freon. If it is too low it will never kick in because the low pressure switch won't allow it.

My 83 yamaha maxim won't kick over. It has power and its getting gas. I'm stumped. Need help!


Hi and welcome to the site,

Initially, by "won\'t kick over", do you mean the starter will not turn? If yes, check the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.

If on the other hand, the starter will spin but engine will not catch, then check for presence of spark on the plugs.

Good luck and thank you for asking.

Air condition compressor won;t kick in


Most likely a loss of refrigerant ( freon ) in the system. The A/C compressor uses a low pressure switch as a SAFETY to insure it wont turn on without freon in the system. Hope this helps.
