Compressor won’t Start
The Main reasons that this will happen
1 - A bad run capacitor (silver or metal capacitor)
It’s either shorted, grounded or open.
If it’s shorted a lot of times it will bulge out, (sometimes slightly)
2 - A bad start kit ( plastic capacitor and Relay connected to it )
The capacitor is either shorted or open
The relay either has an open coil between terminals #1 and #5
Or the relay is stuck.
Any time you change the capacitor or relay you should change
the other, especially if they are over a year old.
3 - A loose, burnt or disconnected wire
4 - Wired wrong
5 Compressor is open (windings burnt open)
6 Low on charge not getting enough cooling back to compressor, (Feel top of compressor to see if it’s hot it shouldn‘t be)
7 Some compressors have a black plastic overload under the compressor cap which could be bad.

On my 2001 Honda Accord EX, the cooling fans will not come on when the air conditioner is turned on and it will not cool. What is causing this?


sounds like an air conditioning issue if your only complaint is the fans not coming on when air conditioning is used. you need to have the a/c sys checked out to see if you have a leak or perhaps refrigerant may be low. sometimes you may have a compressor that no longer works so the system may not be building up pressure so the pressure switch does not cycle the fans.

The fan wont work car does not get hot shut off


cooling fan works on a temp sensor in the engine block. it only turns on when the temp reaches a set limit and shuts off when it gets below a set limit.. cooling fan components are , fans, fan relay , and temp sensor . best way to test the fans would be to let the car set running and watch the temp till it goes up to 185 -195 deg. at this time the fans should turn on and the thermostat should open and cool the engine back down. also when ever the air conditioning is on so should the cooling fans be on. if the fans do not run the check all components till you find the broken one. fan relay and air conditioning relay are separate but work the same. and will interchange

Fan will not turn off


which fan? Interior fan, or radiator cooling fan? Is it the radiator cooling fan, or the fan controlled by the air-conditioning?

Run the vehicle, turn on and off the air-conditioning to identify which of the fans in the engine bay is the one triggered by the air-con and which is the primary cooling fan.
If the primary cooling fan is permanently engaged, then first try replacing it's relay as it may have fused closed.

All electric apt 5 year old fan wont turn off when air is off


Sound like bad mercury switch or time for a new thermostat would be my first guess, second guess would be that the condensing unit needs to be cleaned out side. it might be frozen up, that happens when it gstarts getting hot outside.
It might also just be as easy as flipping the breaker to the unit to allow it to reset and turning it back on. but if its still cooling and just wont shutt off, my guess would be thermostat or lose wire in there of.

If you dont have a maintenance guy you can call and it is too cool, try turning the breaker off at night until you can get it looked at.

Why does the car start to over haet when i have the air conditioning on, once i turn off the ac the temperature goes back to normal


YOUR AIR CONDITIONER PUT LOAD ON ENGINE CHECK TO MAKE SURE RADIATOR COOLING FAN RUNNING BECAUSE IT HELPS TO KEEP THE ENGINE COOL AND AC CONDENSOR COOL FAN NEED TO BE RUNNING IF NOT CHECK COOLING FAN FUSE OR RELAY.

Air conditioning wont cool went the car is park


Sounds like your condensor cooling fan isn't working. It cools while driving because air is forced over condensor while driving. Tio prove this, place a box fan in front of the car and turn it to high. Watch it start cooling.
