Question about Heating & Cooling
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?

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

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

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.

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.
