You can get the silicone grease at automotive and hardware stores. Apply to rubber seal on cap about every 2 to 3 months. This will ensure a seal so that the engine light doesn't come on. Worked great on My 2008 Liberty.
Hi, If the fan is running and the compressor is not running then you should be getting power to the compressor... Often the dual capacitor will go bad and then the compressor will not start. I usually change the cap to make sure that is not the problem. If the compressor still does not start then check the start amps and you will find that you are probably getting locked rotor amps. or no amps... (open windings) Either way you will have to replace the compressor...
check the fan speed control,(should have a little dial on it or u have the wrong color wire pluged in)sounds like its on the wrong speed. motor is getting hot and shutting off due to thermo overload switch.
I have the same problem. Sounds like the unit is stuck in "Dry Mode". Dry Mode runs the compressor for short intervals (like one minute at a time). Mine is only 2 months old and worked great until a few days ago.
This is a 2 speed condenser fan control board, the tempstar part number is 1086071, if you google tempstar 1086071 you will receive 1 listing for the part for something like 44 bucks, but if you go to sears parts direct and enter the part number they have a factory authorized substitute part number 1088977 that you can order from them for $17.49, some tempstar units were shipped without this control unit and the 2 speed fan just runs off the contactor on high speed only to do that disconnect the control unit and connect the black and orange wires that ran from contactor to the control unit previously together, and then the fan should come on in high speed when the condenser is on. there is a kit that they shipped these control units http://icpindexing.mqgroup.com/documents/086477/48201222001.pdf, (just for you to look at) so all you really need to do is get the new part from sears or run the motor in high and get rid of the part all together, hope this helps.
I brought my 2006 H3 in to the dealer for the same thing. My blower stopped working all together but it started as an intermittent problem. He said he had to replaced a diode or resistor either behind the switch on the dash that controls the fan or on the fan motor itself. Have not had a problem since but that was only about 4 months ago.
