Sounds like it is either low on Freon (factory defect) or the thermostat needs adjustment or is bad. This unit is "short-cycling". There is always a delay between shutoff and restart in A/C systems. This allows the pressures to equalize in the system so that the compressor does not try to pump liquid Freon (doesn't work and almost always fatal for the compressor). If it is this new, return it for replacement. I am assuming that it is a portable or window unit.

I have a new Delonghi portable AC PAC N115EC (11,500BTU), is it normal for the compressor in this particular A/C to be cycling on/off every 2 to 3 minutes?


If the room is cool, it sounds like the unit is operating correctly. It could be short cycling because the unit is over sized for the room being conditioned. if you can, increase to size of the load by opening a door into another room. As long as the refrigerant pressures equalize from high to low side internally and the compressor doesn't start up under load, you should be fine

Do I need a new control panel if my compressor kicks off every 2 to 3 minutes?


check the outside unit is clear and has lots of air flow, try cleaning the outside with a garden hose, most likely the compressor is cutting out because it is getting too hot.

Thermostat will not cycle compressor temperature


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the thermostat is not cycling the compressor on and off on your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAM157S1A. Please check the temperature sensing element to see if it is touching a cold coil. This will be located behind the air filter. Straighten away from the coil if it is touching. The other possibility is the compressor shut-off by changing modes. Wait approximately 3 minutes and listen for compressor to restart when set in the COOL mode. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Amcor 10,000BTU set at 64 degrees - - temperature of air coming out of unit is 72 degrees. In one and half hour set at 64 degrees the room temp only went from 90 degrees to 84 degrees. Recommendations?...


I am not sure, i have a similiar unit that is brand new, seems like a faulty mechanism from the maker, it starts cold for about 2-3 minutes and then shuts down condenser and blows hot air repeating this cycle. I don't believe it ias a recharge, just a faulty machine

I have a Ducane fits all 92 my lanlord installed,about 3 months ago.The thermostat is a new digital. The temp is set on 68,and if i go to 72 for example,the furnace starts and runs fine for about 3 to 5...


Sounds like you are not proving flame to me. Could be a variety of things. I think it may be the board...but that is a guess from past history with Ducane

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 .
