Compressor runs for a sec and cuts off for about couple of minites and runs again
When changing the outlet to a 110 prog outlet we bought the wrong outlet ran air for a year by turning the plug cord upside down this is a heater/ac unit by carrier #xhc101d we have replaced outlet but can you tell me if this would make the compressor messup and cut on and off repeatedly. and what do i need to do about this it feels like the fan is just running.

I know that some of the old Sears & Roebuck radial arm saws had that feature. I Know as I still own one, so the technology is certainly there.
I'd suggest that you contact the manufacturer with your model number and ask them.
There are electric motors that run on ether 110 or 220 but wire must be changed on the motor to change from one to the other. Look on the side or end of the motor housing for a identification sicker or plate it well have the information that well tell you which it is or if it can be either.
Now for the bad news if it was sit up for 110 or if it is only 110 the motor is most likely fried.
your compressor is locked up. i would try replacing the round start capacitor. you need to check what the exact rating for yours is but I believe one of these two will work for ya. In the meantime do not continue to try to run it, it will kill the compressor. seth
Most brands of air comperssors are built to work on either 220 or 110 v. I believe that 220 v compressors are more efficient and draw less current and run cooler.
The more expensive compressors have a switch allowing for voltage selection. Still others will have a wiring diagram printed on the motor allowing voltage change by changing jumpers. Most all of the sears compressors that I have repaired were of single voltage with no other way to change except change motor. Do not worry however, you have the better motor. It is easier to convert the outlet plug to 220 by isolating the circuit and installing a 220 v breaker. enjoy
-If both compressor and fan motor starts and stop, thermostat is the defect. - If only the compressor check for your outlet no sign of discoloration, check the voltage if normal, check the defective overload protector of the compressor it its external, or compressor itself is defective
Not sure of what cut out refers to. If you mean the power supply is tripped out after twenty secs hen I would say there is a fair chance of the compressor being down to earth (ie broken). If you mean that the compressor tries to run and then stops after twenty secs then there is a fair chance the compressor is stalled (ie broken). There is also a chance that the relay (starting device) may be at fault failing to start the compressor. If it is the relay then the cost may be around £70 if its the compressor then you are lookin at a couple of hundred pounds approx. The buzzing sound does sound like the compressor trying to run but stalled and unfortunately compressors have no real average anymore and are prone to fail whenever they choose to. Sorry to sound negative and hope this helps.
