Question about Heating & Cooling
The condensor exhaust motor only runs intermitently 1-2 minutes max whilst cooling takes place. I bought this as a clearence item. Am I right in thinking the gas is low?
What can be done
If its cooling during the on to two minute duration its not low on freon the fan on condensor has to operate in order for it to cool off freon to outside theres not a whole lot of info here to go by but here is some ideas-you may want to check outlet for a suuficient power supply and also that it is properly wired if not correct unit will not operate right(hardware sells a tester you plugh in with leds to tell if outlet is wired correct)also check breaker that it has sufficient amperage to suffice unit-if you bought on clearance it could be something that was brought back to store that was not functioning correctly-if unit is fairly new most are controlled with circuit boards may have problem in board-if not could be fan motor faulty for condensor-check switch and wiring for loose connections!!!Best of luck to You!You can also call manufacturer and register unit and then claim a warranty!!!!

There are many causes why this unit works intermittently. This unit is prone to faulty motor running capacitor,for shorted or leaky.There three capacitor there you better check it one by one . Shorted or leaky capacitor can cause the unit to run intermitently. Also check refrigerant Freon gas or CF4 maybe out or slowly leak out. This unit also will goes on and off if there is a shortage gas involved . Also check the thermostat if its working. Also cold solder issue in contol panel circuit board and power supply board.
