Question about Danby Portable Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Air conditioner compressor runs for about 1-2 min, then cuts off

We had a power outage on a Monday night; ran the air conditioner for the first time since then on a Wed night (2 days later). Air conditioner cools for about 1-2 min, then you can hear the compressor shut off, air stops blowing out of the exhaust hose, and then its just the fan running on the unit.

I've pushed the test/reset button on the power cord several times....in fact, the only way to get the unit to cool for the 1-2 min is to keep doing the test/reset sequence.

Does anyone know if the power outage caused something internally to fail? The power outage lasted about an hour I think

Well when u have outages the voltage drops obviously, the one that suffers are the capacitors the capacitor for the compressor might need to change, change it with the same capacity as the old one example if labels say 55 microfarady ( mf ) ( 55 mf ) get one of the same I am not saying it is a 55 mf capacitor vary depending on motor and brand. So check the label

Re: Kenmore Plasmaire air conditioner; suddenly stopped working during night. Motor will initially turn on but no air coming through, then will stop


Most likely you have a bad fan,did you have a storm or lighting strike or power drop / outage .
These type of things can cause trouble with a weak electrical part - not know the age of the Unit - you claim it happen in the middle of the night - if the fan Humms and cut outit could be a cap. that helps you fan start - but the fan is damaged if it tryed to start time and time again . Call service if the unit is worth it .

Fan cutting on and off every 5 mins


The only thing that is going to but the fan off is the thermostat. When the fan stops, immediately check the thermostat on the wall. See is there is power between the B terminal and the GH terminal. If none, then replace the thermostat. If there is, then replace the control board in the AC. That means that the fan relay on the printed circuit board is weak.

Compressor kicks out and it's new


First of all, clean your outside coils so that you are assured of good cooling air. The compressors have an overtemp device that is usually internal to protect them against heat. If you have an air compressor use it to blow out the coils good. If the compressor will start, the capacitor is good so it sounds like a cooling problem with the compressor

My problem is the fan never goes off runs 24-7 and you can hear the compressor kick in from time to time. Is something wrong or do they all do that for a roof top unit? Any help on this one?

Cuts in and out


I suspect a bad compressor run capacitor. Take the unit to a service facility & have the capacitor & overload protector replaced. The overload will be weakened by the repeated cycling.
