The house is hot and the thermostat is calling for cool.
possible causes
-old compressor with bad valves
-low refrigerant
-compressor isnt actually running its just the outside fan

call an ac guy b/c the amount of tools you're gonna need to properly diagnose this is about $300-$500 plus some know-how which unfortunately you do not have on this subject.

Duo Therm A/C (2009 Sabre RV) won't shut off


bad compressor relay on control board. The relay is not opening the circuit, allowing the compressor to stay running when unit is turned off. This overheats the compressor and opens a thermal disk shutting the compressor off. When thermal disk cools down, the compressor restarts under load and trips breaker.

Will not stop running


Are you referring to the compressor not shutting off down below or the evaporator fan inside the cooling area not shutting off? Evaporator fan always runs the compressor is controlled by the thermostat you could have a bad thermostat if the compressor never shuts off.

Hotpoint Refrigerator constantly runs and doesn't shut off normally.


Sounds like the thermostat is not working that is what tells the compressor it is cold enough shut off.

Haier Mini spilt HSU18VC7 compressor runs for 5 minutes then stop 3 minutes then run another 5 minutes and so on.


This is called short cycling. It sounds like the compressor is getting hot and opening a bi-metal overload, which shuts the compressor off. The compressor cools, because it is not running and the bi-metal contacts close allowing the compressor to start again. This will repeat itself and is usually due to low refrigerant, which usually means there is a leak in the normally sealed refrigerant lines. The refrigerant cools the compressor windings and if it is low it cannot do that, hence the shutting off of teh compressor, cooling down process and restarting of your compressor. Short cycling will ultimately ruin the compressor.

If this has helped you please give me a rating worthy of my diagnosis.

Window unit (110) cools for a few minutes then stops cooling just fan air unit is about 6 0r 7 years old


It sounds like your compresssor is shutting off on an overload. After the overload cools down the compressor comes back on until the overload heats up and shuts the compressor off again.The fan keeps running as it is not on the same circuit as your compressor.

When compressor on the blower keeps trying to shut down.


You may have a bad capacitor. But you may nee a service tech to check it out. There is only so far you can go without knowledge of Air Conditioning. Ask for free estimate and you will know upfront what the cost is . RUS

Compressor hums and shuts off


This sounds very much like a compressor failure. unplug the refrigerator and check the condenser for cleanliness. After cleaning the condenser and allowing the compressor to cool, plug it back in and listen for the same sounds. If the compressor was overheated it should restart after it cools. If it does not restart the compressor could be seized. Check the compressor warranty against the age of the refrigerator.

Cooling


Check if the condensar ( outside fan unit) is getting enough free ventilation. IF there is no free air flow you will mostlikely be triping the unit due to short cycling. Ie the unit is pulling its own discherge air causing the compressor to trip due to high back pressure
