Compressor keeps turning off and on. Stays on for about a minute. Cycles off. Then stays off. Does recycle after a few minutes. How do I add coolant and where.


It is normal for the compressor to cycle - when a certain pressure is reached in the system, a pressure switch disengages the compressor clutch, and then activates it again when then the pressure drops below a certain point. Unless your air temperature doesn't stay relatively constant, there is no need to do anything. If it doesn't, the system may need recharging and that should only be done at a certified repair shop.

Just installed Archtic King 5,000 btu window AC unit. It has no thermostat and runs all night long. Every few minutes the AC slows down like a brown out and the lights dim. Why would it brown out?


If the compressor is having a hard time starting it will "pull down" on the electricity causing it to sound slow. Your compressor is probably not starting and this will make it run all the time with no cooling. The air will feel cool but not cold. If it is a new unit take it back. If it is a used unit it may have a loose or disconnected wire, a weak capacitor, or damaged compressor/circuit board.

My compressor shuts off after a few minutes


Hello
One possibilty is the out side coils or condenser is dirty.And the unit is shutting down on high heat.

Try cleaning the outside coils with some simple green cleaner or even comet spray, then rinse with a hose.

The display turn off after few minutes (blank screen, no message). When it does that, the power led stay green. When I turn it off and on, the display work again for a few minutes and the same problem...


jackperson, Might be internal problem with the units power supply (ac line in to DC conversion) having shutdown issues. You will need to do some reading in my fixya profile for a while and then you will know what to look for inside unit. If not into electronic repair stuff, skip the reading and trade-in unit for new, if current unit is 4, 5, 6 years old. 12fixlouie

I turned on my AC. The compressor sounded like it was straining and the fan wouldn't go on, then compressor went off. But the green powwer light was still on on the plug. I turned it off, unplugged it....


I am guessing it is a window or wall unit right? not central AC? If thats the case, how old is it? New? can u return it? if not, if its older than 4 or 5 years, trash it and get a new one! If the fan isnt working after a few seconds or minutes the compressor will over heat and shut off, its not worth repairing

Kenmore AC Model 25370156000 keeps shutting off and on by itself


If you have just installed this unit in your window for the season, you may want to wait a day or so, for everything in the unit to settle, and try again. You make have shaken it up a bit too much. If not.....sounds to me like it is kicking out on high head pressure. This happens when refrigerant gets too low, or there is air in the refrigerant system. There is nothing you can do to solve this problem, except take it to a repair shop. If I am correct what happens is you turn the unit on, and the fan and compressor start simultaneously, then after a few seconds (maybe up to a minute) the compressor kicks off, and the air gets warm, then the compressor kicks on for a few seconds, and we repeat. This is actually a safety mechanism for the compressor motor so it does not run without refrigerant. (That would destroy the pump.)
