Turn on and off the unit


Change yesterday fourth-air cooling and it turns out very well and works but every 10 minutes off the unit and turn every 3 minutes which is not normal.

Not to be this change?

Just pass it to another quarter, I am somewhat inclined to back. Sera that the problem?

Outside unit will only run for a short amount of time with A/C before the fan stops turning and starts humming, squealing/screeching and the top of the outside unit gets hot.

The bearings are bad in the motor and after the fan runs enough it eventually gets hot, making the bearing screech and the fan locks up. Need to replace motor again. See if it has a warranty. The reason it gets hot is because the fan is what removes the heat from the coil and if the fan isn't running there is nothing to cool it off so to speak.

Why doesnt my ac through cold air

mcdevito75 here, It could be 3 reasons, First the lower the outside humidity the less cool air your A/C will blow out, 2 Turn off your unit for 10 minutes and re-start with fan only for the first 3--4 minutes then adjust for A/C. 3 Your unit needs serviceing, Freon charge.

5,200 BTU unit. Compressor and fan both work when first turned on, then compressor quits after 5-10 minutes of operation. Won't turn on again even after 5-minute fan-on cool down. Process repeats after AC...

this could be just a simple fix of cleaning the condenser coils. If semi-clogged, it can cause higher than normal pressures and cause the compressor to cut out on it protector. Check it out.

My unit dont turn on. it look like it is on, since the green light are on, but the unit dont cool neither make any noise

Hi, I looked up this unit, 5 to 8,000 b.t.u's about 1/2 of cooling, good unit. You say its not doing anything at all like maybe blowing just warm or room temperature air, or just a green light is on and its dead in the water? It didn't give me anything on stats for this unit, but you must have power to the unit. What I would do first, is to find the breaker that controls the plug that you run it on, turn it off for about 7 to 10 minute's, and reset breaker to see if there's a change. If you are a handyman or lady, you can try, since this is a newer model, try after pulling the plug, removing the front cover. Take the knobs off. Where the knob for the thermostat control is mounted, you should find some screws and a metal plate you can remove and this is where you will find your wiring control compartment. Look for any reset in the area, or possibly they may have a portion of this unit fused on the circuit board like they do on the larger circuit boards. Look for any signs of burned or blacked areas in the electrical area also. If not, we will have to go from there and take the steps to trouble shoot deeper into the system to find why you have power as the led light is on, but something has taken place. Keep me posted, and start at the main power supply like I asked first and we will go from there. Let me know what you find.

Own 2005 27.5' Wildwood Trailer with a Dometic a/c ducted unit. Last few times out it freezes up initially first few times (pocked circuit breaker once then I turned it off after few minutes second time)....

Don't block off any ceiling ducts and see what happens. If you've closed off any forced air ducts, the unit will freeze up, if too many are closed off. Also, if you shut unit off (compressor) give it 5 or 10 minutes before you turn it back on.

Wont turn on

When you turn on the cooling, does the blower inside run? On the indoor unit, is it a air handler or a gas furnace?
If the indoor blower runs, then the eastiest thing to check is the A/C breaker and near the A/C there should be a disconnect box, usually has fuses located inside of it,,,,,turn off power at the breaker before opening the disconnect box, the fuses will have to be ohmed out, you can't tell anything just by looking at them.
What brand is the system?
On the thermostat, if you switch the fan to the "on " position, does the fan come on?
Please check this stuff out, and get back to me and we'll see if we can figure it out for you.

A/c turns on for 10 minutes

If it was start up capacitors, it wouldn't start initially every time. Do me/you, a favor, and remove your filter inside (return air) , and if it's a ducted system, remove entire plastic cover inside. Take a flashlight & look way up where filter covers in hole & take a good look at cooling fins on evaporator (front of AC). Look for restrictions such as dust etc. That dust will turn just like mud on there due to condensation mixing with dust, and block off flow which could cause unit to freeze up & compressor to kick out. If your real ambitious, and find lots of dust there, taking cover off roof unit would be next, and check same there at back end (condenser) coils & cooling fins.Get back to me after inspection from inside. Could still be electrical but lets check that it has proper maintenance & best chance to work properly by doing this first.

Turn on the and it begins to cool for about 10

Possibly your compressor overload is bad. A cheap and easy to replace part mounted on top of the compressor.

My AC is not cooling the air

Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, it is not blowing cool air after you emptied the tank.

Turn the unit off and unplug it for 5 minutes.............
Then back in with the plug and turn it on max cool.
Give it 5 or 10 minutes to get cold, and we will see if this procedure has reset the system.
Then get back to me and let me know it's working!

How old is the unit?

Please remember to leave a rating before you go!
Thank you Huuum
