Hi,

No doubt it's a 4 days old unit, still it's an electronic item and the defect might be a manufacturing one.

There might be many reasons, Few of them would be :-

1. Settings - Few of these have settings that would allow them to either Turn off after some time or at certain temperature. Check the manual offered with it. Try to plug off. Wait for few minutes and again plug in.

2. It might be the faulty fan, which forced the compressor to shut off.

3. More likely, it's either defective Thermostat or Compressor.

If under warranty, Give them a call and replace it.

If not, unfortunately, you might need to spend many bucks to repair, if it being a faulty thermostat or compressor.

Remember as i said - It might be a manufacturing defect.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Hi,

    Also, check the Voltage across the switch. It should be 220 v.

    Thanks.

Condenser Fan Shuts off after 15-20min, Compressor continues to run but gets hot


Condenser fan motor or motor wiring is bad. That compressor should never run without the fan. Good luck.

The a/c on my 2010 Mercury Milan quits blowing after about 2 hours of driving. Any ideas?


Sounds to me like the A/C clutch is no good and out of adjustment.You should goto your nerrest junkyard and get a used assembly take the clutch off then you learn how it comes off and install it on yours the save the pump for later use if needed. The clutch should only have a .010 air gap after install between th inner elctro magnet and the clutch plate it's self.

The capacitor was bad and was replaced. now the system will work fine for about 30 min then the fan the outside unit will stop working. it sounds like the compressor is still on and cold air is will...


Yes, if you changed the three post capacitor that runs the fan and compressor, and the fan is still getting hot and shutting down until it cools off, you may have bushings out of the motor or an internal short. Sounds like you have a job ahead of you of changing your condenser motor. If you do this yourself just contact me I will step you through it . Mark

Blows cold but shuts down no freeze up


Check the capacitor. It should be a dual capacitor , runs both compressor and fan. This sounds like your problem only because both the compressor and the fan go out together. Good Luck Hope I helped

COMPRESSER IS VERY HOT, FAN OUTSIDE BLOWING COLD AIR OUT NOT HOT


Most likely the unit is low on refrigerant. You could also have a restriction in the system. You need to put gauges on the unit.

Running fine but blowing warm air


"it seems to work fine but will not get cold"
Not sure how it can work fine and is not cold. When you say work fine, is the light on and the freezer fan blowing but is the compressor running?

Unplug the Ref and wait about 30 min or so, plug it back in and listen for the compressor to start running. You should be behind the Ref to hear this. If you don't hear it start running then you may hear a clicking noise. This clicking is a problen with the compressor start relay. If the compressor runs but still is not cold then it could be low on coolant.
