The best guess is that you have a bad thermostat. When the compressor shuts off it has to stay off for a long enough period of time for the low pressure high pressure to equalize. If it turns the compressor off and back on immediately it can't start against the heavy load created by these unequal pressures. If it will start every time after sitting for 10 minutes the thermostat is making it short cycle.

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.

For the past two days I have had to reset the main circuit breaker for the outside unit. It appears to be running fine now. I'm just wondering is this an indication of the compressor about to go bad,...


Bill, first thing, make sure the outdoor coil isn't stopped up with dirt. This will cause the compressor to overheat and possibly trip the breaker. If you you can check the amp draw that would be good. Look on the data tag on the outside unit and look for RLA or "running load amps". Running amp draw should never exceed this number, it should actually normally run 10% under RLA. If its real hot where you are like it is here (109) it will be running close to RLA.
If you coil is stopped up with dirt, etc., turn off the breakers, use you water hose and sprayer and carefully wash out the coil.
If all this fails, and your amp draw is good, change your breakers. Hope this helps , stay cool.. Mark

RVP 8000 A/C just experienced slight power surge. Compressor on.


I'm leaning toward sticky relay as well, but if you want to confirm it's not thermostat, remove thermostat from wall, and temporarily disconnect the yellow wire from thermostat (compressor) when/if, it happens again. If compressor stays running, I'd say relay for sure.
Just for future reference , Gray wire from thermostat is low fan, green wire is high fan, yellow is compressor, blue is ground. ( For cooling side) The red is 12 v + to furnace and white is negative to furnace.(heat side)

Intertherm S3QA042K compressor won't restart


You probably need a hard-start kit. A hard-start kit connects to the run capacitor and provides a starting boost for your compressor. If you install a hard-start kit, monitor your a/c for a while because it is possible that the bearings in the compressor are going bad.

Tripping the circuit breaker means that something is shorted out. A fan motor or the compressor, most likely. Disconnect the compressor or turn the thermostat up so high the compressor doesn't start. If the breaker still trips, the fan motor or its capacitor are the problem. If the breaker stays on, the compressor or its capacitor are causing the problem.

Compressor starts and doesn't stop


Relay for the compressor may be stuck ( Contacts welded) both the fan and the compressor should operate at the same time. Have the relay(s) checked and possibly replaced.

Rheem furnaace blower stays on


On a furnace the fan is controlled by a computer and a sensor ot a oldstyle fan thermostat. Basically it waits till the furnace heats up a little and then turns it on and after it shuts off it will run till the thermostat cools back down may take a few mins. In cool mode the thermostat controls the fan so it shuts down immediatly. This is why the thermostat asks you if its electric or gas heat. Should have a switch somewhere for this.
