Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

About the Polar Wind Portable air conditioner: When the compressor tries to kick on it just shuts off again. I tested the start and run capacitors and they tested fine. The coils are clean. The water basin is empty. I can't find any other information on it and don't know if I can buy a part if I did find something that was wrong. The only thing left that I know it might be is the circuit board or a bad winding in the compressor. Any suggestions? Any contact numbers? Thanks

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.

Compressor appears to kick in, runs for short time


It sounds like your unit may have a bad run capacitor or start capacitor and relay. Low voltage will also cause this problem. First you need to make sure that you have the full rated voltages at the unit, if you do, then, have the run and start capacitors checked out and the start relay.

Fan runs but compressor just humms and wont kick on


Check electrical connections including the contactor. Also test the capacitor. If the capacitor fails, it will prevent the compressor from starting. Click HERE to see images of what the capacitor looks like.

My RC air conditioner (Duotherm) kicks the circuit breaker every time I turn it on. It used to kick the circuit breaker every so often, but lately it kicks it immediately if I try to turn on the AC.


Try replaceing the start or run capacitor to the compressor. If no help you can install a start assist capacitor, it helps to start a tight compressor.

Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan won't kick on


be aware that not repairing this asap that you are causing yourself more problems First I would change out the fan capacitor and see if this could be the problem. Secondly if the capacitor isn,t the problem change out the motor . By continuing to allow the system to cycle like this the compressor will take a dive on you costing more . Good Luck

Compressor will not start but the fan runs on RV air condition unit Mod 7332B896 Coleman


If you can hear compressor try to start, then kick out, then I'd say capacitor needs replace, but if you don't hear anything (moan or groan) from compressor, then I'd be looking at a new relay, or at least testing it.
