GE Air conditioner cannot kick into airconditioning mode

We have a GE AGQ08AJGI air conditioner, and overnight it has stopped working. Only the fan works now. There is a fan mode and an air conditioning mode but both modes are just fan now. When its on the airconditioning mode you can hear the air conditioner try to kick in but then it just stops and stays on fan. The machine is in mint condition and this problem all of a sudden happened. Please help.

It sounds like either the start components for the compressor have failed or the compressor itself has failed, since it is not kicking the breaker I would lean towards start components.if it is a PSC only comprssor, you may be able to add a start assist to get the compressor started. I assume that since it is 8000 btu it is 110VAC you can probably get a generic start kit at your local appliance parts house. they have a diagram and are fairly easy to install, just be aware that the capacitor storea charge on the OFF cycle, and can be dangerous

When the vehicle gets warm the air conditioner kicks off when idling and the engine starts to heat up because I think the fans shut off but when you take off the air works again


Are you sure you have the air conditioning on and not the fan?? sounds very much like it. The airconditioning compressor is discrete, separate from the engine/heater.
Is your coolant reservour fully charged with coolant?
Think you may need to check these

Condenser won't kick on, and is hot. Fan works? What's should I do?


Check whether the AC is on fan mode. There are two mode for this type. FAN and AC mode. Put it to AC mode and set the temperature. Solved!! :)

If it doesn't work, call the AC repair guy.
1) Either there will be error with the capacitor circuit which triggers the condenser.
2) there is an issue with your condenser and the circuit.

This is a small repair.

I have a sunbeam 12000 btu window unit air conditioner. I can't seem to change the fan speed when it is in cool mode. When I put it on fan only it blows extremely cold air and i can change the fan speed. ...


Sounds like the switch is wired wrong.
When you put the switch on fan only the compressor should not run at all, therefore their shouldn't be any cold air.
Check the switch to see if it's wired right.

Bryant central air unit fan doesn't stop.


This is a condenser fan and as long as the A/c unit is in cool mode, this fan will run. The only time it should shut off is when temperature setting is satified and the unit shuts off.

Air conditioner fan will not come on and unit will run for 1 minute and stop


You hear the compressor kick in (Hum) but no fan comes on? Will the fan come on when just in fan mode, not cool, or do you have that set-up?

Compressor not kicking on


What type of thermostat are you using? When was the last time it worked ? Do you just get fan on cool mode, or does fan only run on fan mode?
