In air conditioning my tripac apu blows cold for a second than shuts off. I noticed the condenser fan isn't coming when it does this. Fan turns freely. Any suggestions? Thanks

My tripac turns on in A/C mode than trips off. I noticed the condenser fan does not come on and it was sounding noisy but it turns freely( not burned up as far as I can tell) it blows cold air for a second than the whole generator trips off. Any advise appreciated. Jr

Oh, the compressor motor's borked or overworked and overheating, or its capacitor failed short (perhaps the motor is shutting off from thermal shutdown...but you get to find out whether that's so. Be safe.) Alternately the temperature sensors have gone touchy on you. Once you gently vacuum it clean, try keeping incandecent bulbs in series with the compressor to get an idea of how loaded that thing is as it runs for those 5 minutes or so; the load might change more than you expect, just pay attention.
Hopefully you won't have to replace the compressor or motor; but it's doable if you're a certified technician with like equipment (so you can handle the refrigerant decently.) Most shops will streamline a bunch of similar jobs together to cut the waste and setup time.
Bigger conditioners are so much more efficient than little ones...syndicate the A/C?

SOURCE: Heater blows cold, and fan switch only works on 4 and 5

working on 4 and 5 speed that the resistor that broken cold air you got to move the selector to see the motor that move the trap hot and cold sometime when the motor was not move to the hot side for a long time its jam the motor on the passager side under dash put to hot and gently tap the motor tanks pierre

SOURCE: fan not blowing hot or cold air into car

Sounds to me like your heater resistor may be bad do you have any speeds on the fan because typicly you will still have high when this fails if so you may want to check fuse for heater and relay hope this helps

SOURCE: central air conditioner doesn't cool

The capacitor is located inside the control panel on the outside unit. It is round or oval and silver in color.It runs the outdoor fan and the compressor both.
The terminals are marked= C, /F or fan/, H or herm. C-F-H.
The microfarad rating is printed on the capacitor. Make a color code wire diagram before removeing wires.
Disconnect power to the unit. Use a insulated screwdriver to short out the terminals on the capacitor before removing it.

SOURCE: AC Fan doesn't blow cold air, frozen coil noticed outside, resetting power resolves temporarily

You need to call a reputable service technician.  The freezing up usually is associated with a low refrigerant charge or low air flow.  Check your return air filter and replace as needed.

Fridgidaire ffht1817lw8 noisy operation


Good Afternoon John, thank you for your post! Your new high-efficiency refrigerator may make unfamiliar sounds. These are all normal sounds and soon will become a common hum in your home. This noise also indicates your refrigerator is operating as designed. Hard surfaces, such as vinyl or wood floors, walls, and kitchen cabinets may make sounds more noticeable.


Listed below are descriptions of some of the most common sounds you may hear, and what is causing them:


A. Evaporator: The flow of refrigerant through the evaporator may create a boiling or gurgling sound.


B. Evaporator Fan: You may hear air being forced through the refrigerator by the evaporator fan.


C. Defrost Heater: During defrost cycles, water dripping onto the defrost heater may cause a hissing or sizzling sound. After defrosting, a popping sound may occur.


D. Automatic Ice Maker: If your refrigerator is equipped with an automatic ice maker, you will hear ice cubes falling into the ice bin.


E. Cold Control & Defrost Timer or Automatic Defrost Control: These parts can produce a snapping or clicking sound when turning the refrigerator on and off. The timer also produces sounds similar to an electric clock.


F. Condenser Fan: If condenser coils are located underneath your refrigerator you have a condenser fan. You may hear air being forced through the condenser by the condenser fan.


G. Compressor: Modern, high-efficiency compressors operate much faster than older models. The compressor may have a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound.


H. Water Valve: If your refrigerator is equipped with an automatic ice maker, you will hear a buzzing sound as the water valve opens to fill the ice maker during each cycle.


I. Drain Pan (Non-removable): You may hear water running into the drain pan during the defrost cycle. The drain pan will be located on top of the compressor for air-cooled condensers (black coils on back of refrigerator).


I do hope this information proves to be helpful. Should you need any further assistance please feel free to respond.

I have a thermo king tripac and I'm having issues


Hi there, do you have the diesel fired heater unit? have you checked the inline filter and also the injector nozzle inside the burner, we had one come in that was slightly blocked and wouldn't fire up! i have a brand new complete heater unit if you need any parts.

My unit is interrupting the startup and burning the 220 breaker, any thougths?


I would say it sounds like the compressor shorted or one of the three wires is/are grounding out. This should trip the breaker not melt/burn it. The other option is that the condenser fan is not coming on thus causing the compressor to overload and toasting the breaker. I am assuming that you have a 30/40 amp breaker. Once you install a new breaker the turn the unit on and see if the outside fan is working and is the compressor is running. Hope this helps tim

Compresor wont start and when it does it cycles on and off


Does the condenser fan come on? I am assuming the evaporator fan (inside) is blowing? The way these units are wired is that the power goes the the inside unit and the controller inside sends power to the compressor and condenser fan. But if the controller detects that the condenser fan is not turning (via no ground return) it will not send power to the compressor. This to protect the compressor. Did you notice it trip a breaker? When it is on, do you have 240 on the unit outside but not 120 to ground from each leg?

Fan would work great, but air would only get cold awhile and then go back to fan temp


Sounds like your compressor is tripping on overload for some reason. Check for dirty condenser, broken or burned wires at the compressor and/or capacitor or a bad compressor capacitor.

Well when i turn on a/c condensingcome on and


is your indoor fan motor noisy? Right after it shuts off feel if it is extremely warm (carefull, may burn you if you leave your hand on too long). If it excessively hot, the motor is tripping on overloads located in the motor itself, probably the bearings are dragging. Check to see if it spins freely when spun by hand. If not replace motor. Make sure power is off while putting your hands in or around the fan

Condenser coil fan not runningon GE pds22scrrss


The fan can rotates freely even if there's no power to it(fan probably burn out).You can check if power is going to the fan motor by folowing the two wires fron the motor picking up power from the compresor connections under a black plastic cover on the side of the compresor.If you nave power going to the fan its needs to be replaced.

sounds like either your fan is bad or a wire may have burned off of it. Follow the wires forthe fan back to where they make the junction with the compressor wires. when ever the compressor runs your right that the fan needs to run. If you have a meter you could ohm out the fan and see if the motor windings are indeed bad. a reading of infinite would tell the tale.go out and spend 15 or 25 o us and get a new condenser fan motor after you remove your old one and make sure that the one that oyu get is the same. and replace it. Thanks for using FixYa and don't forget to rate this answer please. Happy New Year!!!!!!

Fan is not runinig


check the fan motor. make sure that it spins freely and the shaft doesn't wiggle side to side (in and out wiggle is ok) after that check the run capacitor for the motor. It takes a special tool to check a capacitor you might need to call an a/c service to do this for you. also check fuses and circuit breakers, sometimes only one fuse will trip and not the other
