The evaporator fan motor is defective. Check if the motor can be turned manually and spins freely. Otherwise the rotor is stuck. Check and lubricate bushings/bearings.Check the fan capacitor. If all of the above is ok, replace evaporator fan motor.

APE08AJM1 - GE 115 Volt Portable Electronic Room Air Conditioner - Compressor not kicking on. Manual indicates it's triggering the overload relay? How do I solve this?


There is a start capacitor near the compressor that may be bad. If the capacitor tests OK then the compressor is locked up. A service man can try to get it going with a kicker capacitor but there is no guarantee that that will work.

Why does my A/C make a low fan or humming-like noise when the unit is turned off?


Its probably a transformer. This component takes high voltage and "transforms" it to low voltage. Its probably wired direct, allowing the transformer to work at all times. Most are that have a thermostat. Or some window units, not sure. If the part is changed it should go away.

Not staying cool


sounds like it is either low on Freon or the compressor is going out. The blowing ice cold is an indicator that it may be freezing up because the low Freon. when it stops blowing cold, turn it to fan only mode and see if it gets colder again. If that is the case then the unit is low on freon and freezing up. I know that sounds confusing but that is how AC works. The low freon pressure means the gas is expanding too fast and the air flow cannot take up the cold from the evaporator fast enough. Turning the compressor off and keeping the fan on will alow the room air to take up the cold.

Its possible that the contactor that closes to start the outdoor unit is not pulling in and passing power. You are hearing the coil humming since it is getting control power. Also first check that breaker for outdoor unit is not tripped

You may have a bad condenser fan motor or a bad capacitor for that motor. If the compressor is running in the outside unit but the fan is not then it is most likely one of those two components that has failed. Consider calling a service tech to test it and see where the problem is.

Compressor runs and compress air,but when air setting is depleted compressor will not start to compress more air.If you waite it will start some times do think this might the compressor switch


If it doesn't try to start, then it could be the pressure switch. Another suspect could be the thermal overload on the motor. The motor (or just the overload) might be overheating and shutting the unit off, then allowing it to restart when it cools.

Is there any humming, or does it blow the breaker? When ot shuts off, do you hear a brief hiss of air?

If there is humming or breaker blowing on restart, or no hiss of air at shutoff, the pressure switch unloader valve is probably bad. If the air blows off, and there is no humming, and the compressor doesn't reliably start, it is probably the pressure switch. If pressure drops too low, give the pressure switch a tap with a screwdriver. If it starts then, the pressure switch is your problem.

It is probably either the Compressor and or the capacitor that has failed. The compressor will hum and pull a lot of amps when it has seized up. Sounds like it is time for a new unit.
