I have a Arctic King through wall AC model MWW-12ERN1-MI0 and the compressor will not engage to cool the air. Can anyone help me diagnose and fix this problem?

On the ac unit electric section, check for power at Y1, should have power, possibly to x or c ( common terminal).
Check for power across the compressor contactor, should have power or something is open such as a pressure switch or compressor protection. If there is control power at compressor contactor solenoid ( 24 volts control), then check for supply power on line side of contactor, then on load side of contactor (supply voltage e. g. 230 volts. If all voltages are present, then check the compressor for opens and electric continuity.
CAUTION: electricity is dangerous, can kill and/ or cause fires. Do not attempt if not aware of safety procedures.

Compressor and fan comes on sometimes whats wrong

You question is confusing. Both need to come on folr the unit to work. Are you saying they come on all by themselves after you turned if off?
Do you have a remote control for the AC?

The start capacitor on the compressor is bad. Replace it and the compressor will run.

Coleman mach rv roof ac, the fan comes on but the compressor doesn't, i've replaced all capacitors and stll is not comming on, how do i check voltage to the compressor to maske sure i have pow

At the compressor connectors you have a live and a neutral phase. The live usually goes to a ptc relay starting mechanism which you can test with a meter. If you can disconnect the relay and check the windings of the compressor from one pin to the other two it will tell you if the compressor is open circuit. It is more often than not an overload fault.
