Hi there!
there are several factor on cycling failure, most common on it is the pressure switch device,checking on this,plug out or switch off main circuit breaker for compressor, disconnect pressure switch if this is a single phase connection,there are two supply wire coming in and two wire coming out on pressure connection of compressor motor on power supply to test if it is cycling manually,after direct connection of motor compressor to power supply w/out pressure switch,switch on for 5 to 10 minutes o build a low [pressure then swict off again,then switch on again even there is a low pressure observe if there is cycling motor running if this done replace pressure switch.if still have same problem motor tripping another case not to cycle bring this to electric motor service center.have a nice day dont forget to fix my rate.

Air conditioning compressor just all of a sudden wont cycle on on a 1993 cheverolet silverado

Was it working good before it quit? Many things can cause this: low on refrigerant, pressure switches, fuse, relay, control head, bad clutch. Give me some more input and I will try to help you. I would suggest putting some gauges on it to see where your at with refrigerant first. Let me know, TJ

My AC on my 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 does not turn on when knob is turned on.

I was having the same issue on my 2006 2500 cummins. The a/c worked fine untill all of a sudden it quit. The a/c compressor would cycle 3 times in about 15 seconds then the clutch would not engage. If you turned the a/c off then back on it would go thriugh that same 3 cycle thing again and then not do anything after that. Here is what I found out, The a/c clutch was going out and it was pulling to much current causing the controle module to abort the request to pull in the a/c cluch. I wired in a relay between the controle mod and the clutch and it ran fine untill the clutch went all the way out. I ended up replacing the the commpressor w/clutch. So far so good.

RUUD AC cycles warm & cold 24/7

Hello Anna Sounds like the compressor is overheating and stoping on overload internally.Then it cools down restarts and runs into overload again.I would like to see the freon pressures when running.Could have a clog/restriction in piping.I dont like that you went thru a compressor already, the original installition is suspect.The original (1st) failure cause must be corrected.Check the TXV valve replace, filter/dryer look for a kinked pipe are ideas for overheating.Make sure condenser coil is free (ari flow)& clean also.

2007 ford Focus a/c not blowing cold air

Well, we could guess all day. But first check all of the fuses, and visually check the wiring to the compressor and pressure switches, see if all are connected. If it went out suddenly, electrical issues are usually the culprit.

Refridge quit cooling suddenly inboth freezer

That could be a broad range of possibilities. The defrost timer, adaptive defrost board,compressor start relay, compressor start capacitor or a mother board. Would you happen to have the model number so I can narrow down those possibilities? If you pull away from wall remove cover over the compressor and then unplug. Touch the compressor and let me know if cool, warm or too hot to touch. Thanks, Sea Breeze

2002 Beetle 1.8 Turbo A/C quit blowing cold

You would have to measure the pressure to determine if it's pressurized correctly. The compressor won't run if it's low.
What happens when you push the a/c button? Can you hear/feel the compressor kick in? It seems like in most cases it's the compressor itself or the compressor clutch that goes. It's way too common in vw's...

A/c went pop and hot air started pouring out.

Possibly compressor belt broken. Maybe sudden loss of coolant gas. Fix bad part and recharge.
