Hi,I have a travel trailer 37ft. Problem with my ac, the fan starts good but my compressor does not kick on. My next door neighbour says it's the compressor that is done. Could you help me?


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Motor Trouble Cause Diagnostic Procedure Repair Procedure Electrical Power is Off Check that all service switches for the equipment are in the "on" position.
Check for voltage at the pump motor or pump controls. If no voltage is found, check for voltage at the electric panel.
If power is on to the building, check fuse or circuit breaker serving the electric motor that won't run.
Check for local reset button on the motor (popped out = off )
Check for other power reset or power off buttons such as an access door compartment safety switch that turns off power to the equipment (found on A/C blower compartment doors)
Turn on "off" switches.
Replace bad fuse. Reset circuit breaker; if necessary replace bad circuit breaker.
Let hot electric motor cool down, then push in its reset button.
Be sure all safety interlock switches such as on compartment doors are depressed and that the doors are securely shut. Replace a bad safety switch.

Loose, improper, or broken motor wire Check wiring against the motor installation manual diagram, check all connections for tightness, shorts, burns, damage Rewire or repair or replace wWhen a sealed compressor motor has "burned out" this means that the internal wiring of the motor has become irreparably damaged: the compressor motor windings may be burned and shorted together or shorted to the steel shell of the motor, or the windings may have burned and simply become "open" or disconnected. If the motor has burned out in either of these ways it needs to be replaced.

I have a Magic Chef Refridge MCBR 1010W that has stopped cooling, fan runs and you can hear it kick in but then kicks off? An Ideas?


If the compressor kicks in that tells you the compressor relay and board are probably good. HOWEVER, when you say it kicks off right away that is not a good indication! It sounds like a compressor problem. Is the compressor extremely hot or is the condenser coils icing up? If so, I wouldn't invest the money into repairing it, because it would cost more to repair than to replace.

Delfield mini freezer for restaurant is not freezing. Unit has power and cabinet fan runs but comp tries to kick on then you here a click and it immidietly shuts off before it can really ever start. Hi...


Compressor is locked up. You have an outside chance of getting it to come back if you install a hard start capacitor. When a locked compressor tries to start it gets hot really fast and kicks the power off to prevent wires from overheating. You can get a hard start kit from wwgrainger or refrigeration supply company. Many times they won't sell direct to the end user. The hard start kit gives it an extra boost when it tries to start. Most times this won't work. Usually the compressor has to be replaced because it is burned out internally. The hard start kit is less than $20.00, so its worth a shot.

Model will not stay on cuts off- shake machine, comes back on


Do you mean when you shake it, it starts up again? It is hard to say for sure, but it sounds like a main power wire is loose somewhere. Unplug the machine, take the lower cover plate off and check all the connections. There really isn't a part that works better when it gets shaken. Here is another possibility. If yoy mean that the machine shakes itself and then comes back on, it is probably a bad compressor. When a compressor goes bad, it has an automatic shut off switch to keep it from burning the wires out. If it shuts off it means the compressor is really hot because it is locked up. When it tries to restart, the compressor will shake sometimes when it kicks out again. If this is the case, its time for another ice machine. The cost to replace the compressor is almost what a new machine will cost.

I have a kenmore elite , Mod# 71203100 mfg=10/10/2001 it worked fine since I got it ..48 hrs ago it was found to be not cooling anymore, lights go on fan's work , but compresor will kick in for 30 sec and...


I would fix it because The way I am understanding the compressor is getting hot and thermally kicking out. This could be a thermostat or a start relay for the compressor. Or it could be low on charge that will also make the compressor shut down because of the head pressure. I would check out my thermostat really close and any start relay's for the compressor. It would be about 200.00 compared to 1200.00 to replace it.

I need a start relay for a Kenmore (Danby)


Hi, I'd personally just go and put in a aftermarket start relay and overload. Look up part # IC41 or IC81, or even a rco/hs810. it's been a while since I've used them, but they work. Unless the unit is under warranty there's no consiquence. If you have warranty, these parts will void said coverage. Good luck, hope that helps

ED5SHEXKQ01 is 7 years old. Stopped cooling. Fan is running.


It could be your compressor trying to kick in. Or it could be your defrost system trying to start or stop. The least expensive thing to start is to replace the start kit on the compressor. Call or email us and we'll be sure to get the right part to you asap. You need to turn it off NOW before you burn the other parts up and don't turn it back on until you install new parts.

1990 Dolphin Motorhome Dometic AC problem


If your fan motor is slowing or stopping mid cycle it will cause the compressor to over pressurize. Many compressors have aan internal mechanism that will kick in with a loud whooshing noise, then the Thermal protector shuts the compressor off, cools then restarts. If this sounds familiar, you will need to replace your fan motor before you burn up your compressor...which to be honest may already be irreparbly damaged(sorry). Hoping 4 the best.
