Heat pump compressor wont come on in heat mode, works fine in cool mode, we get heat occaisionally for about 2 min, then the compressor shuts off. it is a fridgedaire window unit.

Try setting the thermostat at a normal heat setting. By raising the temperature too high the unit thinks that the heat pump won't be effective and go into strip heat mode.

I think, your compressor gets over heated due to condenser block-clean it. Less rpm fan speed. -Replace capacitor. 3.Check compressor running capacitor. If weak replace it. Helpful?

My a/c will run and cool great but keeps kicking the 20 amp circuit breaker even when no other appliance is running.

A 20 amp circuit breaker should be sufficient enough to do the job unless the breaker itself is too old, or if the connection screws on the breaker are not tight enough.

Burning smell and icing

Sounds like your blower motor in your furnace or air handler has burned up. shut the unit down and replace the motor. make sure the ice is melted and the unit is dry before you turn it back on.

Problem with my AC unit

Hi Phillip,

Check your thermostat wires to see if you have any of them which are bare and touching. If any are touching separate them and tape em up and try unit again. You have a direst short in your cooling portion of the unit.

Not sure what the smell...smells like.  My guess is dirt or dust near the heating elements.  These will cause a burning smell.  Sometimes insects even get into the act..building webs.
You will have to clean that area out...sometimes a large blower or vac can dislodge the dust.
