Well there is some resons way that does conect an disconect so many times first when the compressor start it has two coils inside the compressor the first one is just to start moving the rotor inside the compressor when that reach some RPM ii gets disconect and conect the other coil that is call constant working if this coil is bad or open thats wat that one does on and off ,,,,second one is the compressor has a thermo switch that is protection for the overheating on the compressor so if the compressor get to hot the thermo protector disconect that for 30 sec an reconect for another 10 min..........and the third one is if the fan the one pull out the heat from the condenser is not working that does overheatin on the compresssor too soo check this 3 points and fix it

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.

My 185 ingersol compressor runs fine for 30-45 minutes, then it cuts off. If I wait 10-15 min it will crank and run for 3-5 minutes then shut off. I have all new fuel filters. What do you thibk could be...


From your description I think you are shutting down on high air end temperature. I recommend the following, Check the oil cooler. you want to make sure you are getting good air flow thru it. If not wash it with a pressure washer. I like to use my flash lite to check and make sure I can see thru it. dont look just at the middle check around the sides. If cooler is OK next check the amont valve (thermostat valve). This valve mixes oil from the cooler and bypass to get the temperature where it needs to be so condensate does not form in the oil. Next you may have a bad HAT switch which is located on the end of the air end. If you have a meter see if the switch opens when you have the shut down. you will need to make sure you really don't have a high temp situation. If the temp is high 228 F or higher the switch is doing its job. The temp limit should be located on the HAT switch. It could be 215,245 etc. If the unit is not hot and the switch opens replace the switch. Hope this helps you with your compressor problem.

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.

OUT SIDE UNIT SHUT DOWN IN HEAT MODE, WHEN YOU FIRST TURN IT ON IT RUNNS FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS THEN BOTH THE COMPRESSOR AND FAN SHUT OFF FOR APROX 3 MINUTES {LARGE LINE STARTS TO GET WARM} AFTER 3 MINUTES...


Hi, You have a heat-pump, this I do no. The reason it is shutting down from how you have explained it to me, is the compressor is shutting down due to high pressure and it is going off on the internal overload. When the compressor cools down, it starts back up and runs again. As for the large line getting warm, this is normal for a heat-pump as in the summer this line will be cold. The reversing valve changes over the flow of freon and the flow goes in the other direction. Back to you're problem. The service tech is bleeding off freon because he is apparently showing with his gauges it is over charged? This will cause it to draw to many amps and shut off. Has this compressor been changed out recently? Or maybe freon added due to a leak? He is doing it because he is thinking it is over charged. It may be some if it runs for a few hours after it is bled off. Did you notice if he clamped his meter around a compressor wire to check the running load amps? If so, that's what he is doing. I would say this unit had work done on it recently or correct me if I am wrong. The condenser fan motor should not shut off with the compressor, it should run all the time even if compressor shuts off on internal overload, believe me!! The fan is wired separate from compressor. The only time this fan shuts off when heat is on, is when it goes into defrost, and compressor keeps running. For the compressor to run for only 30 seconds and shut off, and then back on in 3 min, on for 5 seconds and off again, sounds to me this unit is short cycling due to being under charged. It is strange it runs after he bleeds freon off for a 1/2 a day. As far as the fan shutting down to, and I would like you to get back to me, if the compressor was changed at some point, the fan wiring was connected to the contactor load side, so it shuts down when compressor shuts down. One fan lead is on the wrong terminal of the contactor. If this is the original compressor, this could have happened at the factory, I have seen this before. The tech should have seen this!! Going on and off this fast, would not cause the compressor to get hot enough to kick off and cool fast enough to come back on that fast! Sounds like low pressure. I don't like to knock other techs work, but this unit is not being checked properly. Without me being there to install my gauges and amprobe, all I can do is tell you he is wrong with his solution, way off. Heat-Pumps are much more tempermental then a split a/c only.What to do is call them back out and request a different service tech, or the service manager. This will be no charge to you! You should be reimbursed for the last call. E.P.A. allows us to only loose minimus amounts of freon installing our gauges also. It is forbidden to bleed it into the air. He could be fined $25,000 the 1st time!! It also sounds as though you have a problem in the defrost board that would cause this. Please call them back out and don't feel bad about it. This is you're right! Tell them about the fan also as if it is going off on high pressure which I think not, the fan would stay on. I know this is long but I want you to understand what is going on. I do this for a living and know whats up! I am a Licensed contractor in this field. Please keep me posted. I will be waiting to hear back.
Sincerely,

RE HP Pavillion ZE4800 Laptop When I switch on I here the fan start, the lights come on then it appears to shut down and re attempt to start again This occurs over and over and the PC never boots fully....


I have same notebook and similiar problem. Mine runs for 30 min then shuts off completely in like 20 seconds. I added a $10 usb powered laptop cooler pad and bingo, runs now for hours no problem. On all computers I know the cpu heat temperature has a threshold, if it goes too high it will shut off. I think my fan doesn't kick on fast enough to lower the temperature and cool the processor. On yours it may be a fan that doesn't work or is working at the wrong time and the circuit shuts off the system. Shouldn't be terribly expensive maybe $60 to repair from a good technician..good luck
