Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Compressor runs sporadically (Hampton bay hblg5000)

The unit runs perfectly normal when I turn it on for about five minutes then it stops blowing cool air and I can hear that the compressor isn't running anymore. Even when I turn the temperature dial to highest highest setting the compressor will not come back on. I'm not sure but it seems that when the room that it is in gets really hot, the unit will resume cooling.

I have a Hampton Bay AC. It is 18,000 BTU. It is 230 volts. The EER is 9.7 and it is 8.3 to 9 amps. When I use energy mode on the AC it blows warm air. What gives? Just cool mode and it blows cool.


Hi Paul,
  • Energy Saver Mode most likely shutdown the compressor and Fan Only will be running to recirculate Ambient air into the room.
  • Make sure there is no Port or Vent that is open on your unit and would let hot air from outside be mixed in with the ambient air especially if it is hot outside.
  • Also refer to the troubleshooting section of your owner's manual.
Good Luck,
JP

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.

Model 160 c when AC goes on after about 5 minutes causes the circut breaker to go. The fan does not do that when it is turned on, only the AC. THANKS JEFF


Hi Jeff,
The compressor is either locked up or shorted....
The five minute delay is built in to keep the compressor from starting under load..
Then when it kicks on the high amp draw will kick the breaker...

In most cases the cost for parts and labor to replace a small compressor are more then the unit is worth...
The best thing to do is to replace the whole unit.

No cool air comes out


turn your entire system off and let it cool down.
turn everything up, after 30-60 minutes.
If compressor and fan running, on outside unit, check freon
level. If freon level is low, charge it. If freon is too low, crompressor
and fan want turn on. Call tech to charge system.
If fan is not running, check capacitor for fan. Unplug it, after
you tag wiring and terminal properly. Bring capacitor to local appliance
parts store, If it is bad, replace new capacitor of same specification.
This is main culprit (should cost you between $10-40)
Also, have a contact switch check. Usually, it is black.
If fan is still not working replace fan. (Usually, $80-100)
Last resort is to replace compressor.

Unit cools for a few minutes then stops cooling. Even fan stops blowing air but the unit remains 'on'


unit may be short of gas. will run for a few mins before low pressure switch turns the compressor off. you will need to get an engineer to check gas pressure

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.

Blown capacitor on 4 year old ac hampton bay is


Not common, keep in mind compositor work almost like a fuse but restrict certain amount of voltage to flow through, power surge or unit overload from AC compressor kicking on and off can cause the resistor to fail; its parts of electronics working. My AC unit trip my main fuse box once in the great while, nothing surprises me when it come to electronics.

The fan alone on an A/C unit draws alot less amps than a fan and compressor. I would guess that your fan and compressor draw around 15 amps when bnoth are on. The unit should be on its own breaker or fuse (whichever you have. As things get old, like fans and compressors, they wear out and will draw more amps.
I see you have 2 choices,:
1) place the A/C on its own circuit with nothing else on it. This may buy you some time until you can replace the unit.

2) Buy a new A/C as the newer units are more energy efficient, and last longer.
