Compressor may not be turning off due to satisfied temperature, it may be turning off on safety trip such as high/low pressure, current overload. When the thermostat is set to a certain temperature, the compressor cuts off once the temperature has been reached or satisfied, try a lower setting to see if the compressor satisfies the setting demand.
Some thermostats may be programmed by the installer to perform only a given number of cycles per hour, if your thermostat has this feature, eliminate the setting.

Frigidaire AC window unit, model fam185r2a (18,500 BTU) only cools for a few minutes before it cycles off and just fan blows. Then a few min later cool air cycles back on. Is this a thermostat issue?


The window units normally have a sensor thats attached to the front of the indoor coil. This controls the thermostat. I usually pull this sensor away from the coil because it stops cooling before the room is cool. It is attached to the cold coil so it senses the coil temp, not the room temp. You can normally see it when you remove the air filter. Don't break it! It may be a wire or small copper tube

Compressor only stays on for 2-3 minutes than shuts off


if the sensors are okay, it might be the compressor overheating, my portable ac (moretti elite ac) is also behaving the same, especially when i turn the fan to max. the compressor shuts down about 7 mins and turns on again in about 5 mins, now i found out when i turn to medium or low the compressor runs normally. i think when on medium or low setting some of the cool air directs/channels to the compressor thus cooling it more.

I have a Hampton Bay air conditioner model # HBLG 1800H. The unit is about 4 years old now. Here lately when I turn the unit on low cool it starts cooling the room and then the compressor shuts off which I...


Sounds like a bad thermal overload which opens when the compresssor gets too hot. After the compressor cools down it closes and does not re-open unyil the compressor gets hot again. Check your wiring diagram if you have one and look for a symbol like two question marks on top of one another or the letters O/L. That seems to be what is occurring here.

I have a model gss25lgmb bb. Im having issues with (couple of months) my fridge randomly stop cooling. Causing everything to defrost. My fan still seems to be on but not cooling or freezing. PLEASE HELP


If its not cooling or freezing then the compressor has to be checked.The compressor is the part which controls the cooling and freezing in the refrigerator.If the gas / refrigerant in the compressor gets low/ less then compressor will run more but it will not cool due to less refrigerant in compressor.In that case the compressor needs to be replaced. -------------- Also it can be faulty defrost assembly parts causing this issue.The thermostat is got faulty or the heater is not turning off.This also causes every thing to get defrosted.

The defrost assembly consists of three main parts. The defrost thermostat, the defrost heater and defrost board. Any of the one is not functioning. When thermostat sense the maximum cooling, it triggers the defrost heater to start heating and this defrosts the ice collected on the coils and the system works. Both thermostat and heater are controlled by defrost board. First the thermostat and defrost heater to be checked, if both check ok by meter and visually, then its defrost board causing the problem. You can get required parts from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site.------------

Before that you can try manual defrost reset procedure. The manual defrost reset procedure is as follows : ----First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check, if the problem returns again.Then go for replacing the parts.-------------------This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Refrig does not cycle - freezer unit ices


Sounds like you have a defrost control board problem too if your freezer is icing up. The thermostat is what causes your refrigereator to cycle on and off - most common causes is indeed a faulty themostat. On refrigerators with electronic controls, you may have a faulty motherboard. On those with a dial knob with numbers, try slowly turning down the knob so you decrease the numbers. example, if you ahve it set to 5 decrease it slowly to 4....3..etc You should hear a "CLICK" that cycles off your compressor, evap & condenser fans - you may have the dial set too high. If however you go all the way down and it doesn't cycle off unless you completly turn it off to 0, you have a faulty thermostat - if it does cycle off at a very low setting, say 1, your therm is out of calirbation - you would need to change the unit. Make sure the sensor is not obstructed with dirt or foreign objects, if it is obstructed your thermostat will be fooled and think your fridge is not cooling and always stay on. If setting the knob to a lower value, cleaning / removing foreign objects or obstructions does not help you will need service - have them check the thermostat / control board and defrost timers while at it - there should not be frost build up in your refrigerator.

good luck

WHIRLPOOL NO-FROST REFRIG/FREEZR MODEL-EHT201ZKWR5


looks like operating normally...

the fridge as it reaches it's temperature shuts the compressor off and then after a few minutes..the fridge would increase temperature again and would turn back the compressor again.

its the thermostat which is cutting on and off the compressor.

and i think it is normal. based on the temperatures that you indicated..it is cooling very well..0 F in the freezer and 40 in the refrigerator... that's good.

After cleaning coils and in back of fridge, it appears that the defrost keeps cycling every 5 minutes


hi
Step 1:
 If the compressor runs all the time, turn the control knob to the OFF position. If the compressor still runs, unplug the unit, then pull off the control knob and remove the screws holding the thermostat in place. Pull out the thermostat and remove either the red or the blue wire from its terminal. Plug in the unit. If the compressor doesn't run, the thermostat is faulty. Replace it with a new thermostat.

Step 2: 
If the compressor runs after the wire is removed from its terminal, there is probably a short circuit somewhere in the unit's wiring. In this case, don't try to fix the problem yourself; call a professional service person.

Step 3: 
If the refrigerator or freezer runs but the box doesn't cool, unplug the unit and remove the thermostat with a screwdriver. Disconnect both wires from the thermostat. Tape the ends of the wires together with electrical tape, and plug in the appliance. If the refrigerator starts and runs normally, the thermostat is faulty. Replace it with a new one of the same type. Connect the new thermostat the same way the old one was connected.

Step 4: 
If the freezer compartment is normal but the refrigerator box doesn't cool, set the dials that control both compartments to mid-range. Remove these knobs (they're usually friction-fit). Then unscrew the temperature control housing; you'll see an air duct near the control. Replace the knob on the freezer thermostat and turn the control to the OFF position. Open the refrigerator door and look closely at the air duct. If this duct doesn't open wider in about ten minutes, the control is faulty. Replace the control with a new one of the same type. Connect the new control the same way the old one was connected.

Replacing thermostat


try to determine if compressor is running when "stops cooling". then, if it is, look for frosted coils on back. if frost, then unit needs thorough cleaning with compressed air.

Thermostat ?


The Air conditioner are good only the adjustment of thermostat are the problem, select the thermostat in lower #3 you observe the thermostat will off in such time temperature reach to #3 If you full adjustment the compressor will not off.
In fan selector the compressor will autamatic off because no connection attached fan only .
