3 ton unit compressor dont wnat to start


there is a capacitor connected to the compressor and one connected to the fan ... the capacitors are used to start both (called starting capacitor) ...if its bad then the compressor/fan may buz but not start ..it will kick out once it gets hot .. that thermal cutout will reset when it cools down ... the capacitor may be a dual unit .. that is, two capacitors in one case (one for fan, one for compressor) ... you could have a frozen compressor or bad bearings in the fan but typically its just the capacitor thats bad (make sure the fan turns freely) ... follow wires coming out of the compressor and fan .. some will go to the capacitor ...thats a metal part (usually a rounded rectangular shape about 4 inches) .. the 3 or 4 wires just plug into the capacitor .. replace with the same value (microfarads and voltage) or get an exact replacement using its part number ... mark what wires go where .. make sure power is off befor servicing ..

Neither A/C compressor or fan coming on in ouside unit.


The bulge is a telltale sign of a defective capacitor along with the tripped breaker. Replace it and cross your fingers.

Compressor appears to kick in, runs for short time


It sounds like your unit may have a bad run capacitor or start capacitor and relay. Low voltage will also cause this problem. First you need to make sure that you have the full rated voltages at the unit, if you do, then, have the run and start capacitors checked out and the start relay.

Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan won't kick on


be aware that not repairing this asap that you are causing yourself more problems First I would change out the fan capacitor and see if this could be the problem. Secondly if the capacitor isn,t the problem change out the motor . By continuing to allow the system to cycle like this the compressor will take a dive on you costing more . Good Luck

Compressor on my RV coleman ac unit bogging down


Take a look at your start capacitor. This the capacitor that kicks the compressor over when it tries to start. If the capacitor is bad, it cannot kick the compressor back over after the first cycle because the head pressure has not evened out yet. It is located in the upper unit on the side panel in a small box. Be careful, highly charged capacitors can zap you if you are not careful. Disconnect power and touch across the terminals with a meter or a screwdriver to discharge the capacitor.

Hope this helps,

Kenmore a/c window unit fan not kicking on with compressor.


Likely a bad motor, when this occurs verify the board is sending voltage to the motor.

Compressor kicks in, trips the breaker.


It is a 1977, usually with age the compressor gives out. You should check the power coming into the compressor, going out of the compressor, check the clixon on the compressor make certain the wires are not touching, how long has it been since the capacitor has been changed?
