Your compressor has a safety built into it called a thermal protector. If you were to feel the compressor after one of these short cycles it would be extremely hot. Your compressor is malfunctioning, and it could be several things. I will list them in order of highest possibility;
Very low on refrgerant, Extremely dirty coil Fan motor failing, not enough electricity supplied to maintain compressor(should have its own circuit not shared) motor windings to compressor failing, restriction in refrigerant line, low voltge switching problem , wWithout a multimeter and gauges the two that you can ensure are clean coils and running it on its own circuit with proper sized wiring, you can clean the coil with a house hold sprayer and mild cleaner. Good luck

The side door is getting hot


Hello,
Pull the unit out away from the wall. Remove the bottom cardboard or metal cover that covers the compressor area. Assure that the compressor fan is working usually when the fan is not working the sides of the unit will start to heat. If the compressor fan is not working shut the unit off until the compressor cools. I have used a box fan while leaving the cover off on a unit to keep the compressor cooling while I had to wait for the new compressor fan motor to come in. DO NOT RUN THE REFRIGERATOR IF THE FAN IS NOT WORKING UNLESS YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO KEEP THE COMPRESSOR COOL like a fan constantly blowing on the compressor. If you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future. Thanks
Rick

The fan unit on top of the outdoor condensor unit is not coming on. The pump is running when turned on, but sounds as if it releases pressure as soon as the power is shut off.


If the fan is not running on top, it will take just a few minutes and the compressor will overheat and the relief valve in the compressor will release. Sounds like your motor is no good or there is some wiring off inside the unit, or the motor capacitor could be shorted or open. You will need to take the side panel to the electrical off and look. If you are not mechanical and are afraid of electricity you may want to call a tech out. Otherwise, be sure to pull the fuses or shut the power off to the outdoor unit before inspectiing.

Carrier Compressor Issues?


When you shut it off and back on it slugged the compressor if you turn it off and back on before the pressures equalize between the high and low sides it will slug the compressor and it will not run should let sit for five minutes or so before restarting. The humming is either the compressor making noise usually common for the compressor to make some noise or the fan motor bearings are getting bad on the outside unit. If the unit works normal probably not much you can do till it breaks if it is the compressor it is more economical to replace the whole unit if it is just the fan motor it is worth changing. You could take an amp draw on the fan motor and the compressor to see if the are within the limits on the name plate of the outside unit.

Compressor starts and doesn't stop


Relay for the compressor may be stuck ( Contacts welded) both the fan and the compressor should operate at the same time. Have the relay(s) checked and possibly replaced.

DH30 Dehumidifier Compressor Does not Operate


I just picked one up at a tag sale, seller said it worked sometimes. Seems to have the same problem as yours. I took the time to tweak all of the connections and then re-soldered the control board with no luck. I finally disconnected the humidity control and it worked fine. By disconnecting the humidity control the unit defaults to it's highest setting and you have to unplug the unit to turn it off. Conclusion so far is that the humidity control rheostat is bad.
Note: Now while running the fan runs continuously and the compressor cycles on and off every 10 to 15 minutes. This may to be normal since the unit appears to be doing its job and I'm not sure how it is supposed to run since a purchased it broken.
