It is an overload protection for your compressor. You can replace it any model as long as the same capacity.

My portable dental compressir is not starting up only the fan is working

Try this, disconnect from power source and let it cool down to room temperature. If the unit over heats it will go into a thermal cutoff.

The compressor has a bi-metal temperature sensor attached to the body. In most cases it is along side of the compressor terminals.

While you are in that area, look for burnt wiring or loose wires.
Assuming that the compressor has over heated and in a thermal, try restarting the unit and see what happens.
If it still wont start and is not tripping breakers, check the start/Run capacitor for bulging or leakage.

Compressor doesn't kick in

If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the air conditioner there may be a problem in one or more of these areas:

So the in door unit is comming on and blowing air but the out door unit is not... i ck power to the unit and all the leads inside no wires looked burnt....i thinking it is the top power supply,black box on...

Toget proper heat, keep your temp setting at 30+ degree and also mode in "heat"position. If still no heat, check your heating sensor for closed circuit by anOHMs metre.It it's with RV, check power to RV.If it's with heatingelement check power to element. If power is there but still no heat meanselement defective. Replace new heating element. Thanks. Toget proper cool, keep the tips as follows:
1. Check air filter is cleaned. 2. Check indoor coil is cleaned. 3. Checkindoor blower motor is working. 4. Keep in cool mode. 5. Set temp minimum 3degrees less than room temp.6.Check compressor is working with correctpressure.

11 year old model that will not shut off. Bang on the outdoor unit and it shuts down

It sounds like one of the start or run relays are jamming. Have a look for them , usually 1 or 2 where the electrical box is. The relays may have a clear covering over them. if it looks burnt or discolored , then thats the failed one. It is possible it may also be the contactor sticking which is a larger box with wires going in at the top and bottom. Usually, there is a button in the middle which pulls in when the compressor starts and pops out when turned off. The smaller relays, usually only control the fans. You will need to determine, is it the fans not turning off or is it the compressor??

The unit is a 12000 BTU energy efficient model purchased from Lowes 3 years ago. It is not cooling. The fan runs fine but it just isn't cooling. The filter doesn't need cleaning. What could it be?...

The compressor is probably not running.

The Main reasons that this will happen
1 - A bad run capacitor (silver or metal capacitor)
It’s either shorted, grounded or open.
If it’s shorted a lot of times it will bulge out, (sometimes slightly)
2 - A bad start kit ( plastic capacitor and Relay connected to it )
The capacitor is either shorted or open
The relay either has an open coil between terminals #1 and #5
Or the relay is stuck.
Any time you change the capacitor or relay you should change
the other, especially if they are over a year old.
3 - A loose, burnt or disconnected wire
4 - Wired wrong
5 Compressor is open (windings burnt open)
6 Low on charge not getting enough cooling back to compressor, (Feel top of compressor to see if it’s hot it shouldn‘t be)
7 Some compressors have a black plastic overload under the compressor cap which could be bad.

My air conditional unit outside ,fans turns on but the unit compressor wont turn on,just stopped working this morning.i turned the thermostat to 72 but only the fan on the outside unit comes on and it is...

Somethings aperson cant fix without a service tech. First it could be wire burnt of capacitor going to compressor. Second it could be bad capacitor. There is a dual capacitor on the ouside unit one side says herm that runs the compressor. Turn power off to check to see if wire is burnt of the herm terminal or the C ternminal. Wire burnt off compressor common terminal.. Could be locked up compressor. Unless you know how to troubleshoot unit. You may have to call service tech. Cost if bad cap. is about 100 to 150. But unit wont run without it. Rus

Dometic RV A/c compressor runs every 10 minutes

Looks like the fan is jammed or a coil has burnt out, resulting in heat which when detected by the thermostat, passes the compressor to star, but since the fan isn't working it manages to drop the temp near the sensor causing the compressor to shut down & restart quickly. Get the fan repaired/replaced at the earliest & don't use the m/c till then....sodeep
