You need to check the capacitor for the compressor. If that's ok then us an ohmmeter to check the windings in the compressor. If the capacitor looks swollen then it is probably bad, otherwise you will need a multimeter with the capacitor check function. Let me know what you find.

Why would my air conditioning in my Mitsubishi eclipse cool on #1 setting but kick off on any other setting above #1?


When you say "kick off," do you mean that the fan shuts off, or that the compressor cuts off? (Unclear.)
If the fan is shutting off, check your fan control switch, blower resistor, and blower motor.
If the compressor is cutting off, check your refrigerant level, and the compressor cycling switch.

Cooling fan won't come on when I turn on the AC


Your bigger problem is the compressor not kicking in. The cooling fan is not coming on because there is not enough high side pressure to turn the fan on. I would start by checking power to the compressor, fuses and relays would be inspect. Check to make sure there is the proper charge of refridegerant in the system.

Duo therm ac trips breaker


When compressor for cool tries to kick in, or even when fan only used?
Try it on fan only, not cool, then try cool and if you hear it sort of "moan" then breaker trips, that's compressor trying to kick in. Make sure you have sufficient power coming in to trailer as well, without long extension cord. Get back to me, then I can tell you which way to go from there.

I changed the air compressor and the dashboard control panel last year and it has done ok. Now the temp. fan and the compressor fan won't kick in and the air compressor won't kick in also. Checked all...


You say temp fan?If you mean the cooling fans,then the ac is out of freon most likely,the freon has to be in the system,and enough to kick the compressor on,therefore turning the cooling fan on.

Not cooling, compressor and condensor coil fan not running.


It sounds like you may have bad starting components on your compressor. I would check your condenser fan motor for 120v. Or try to put a small box fan behind the ref blowing directly on the compressor to aid in cooling it. If the compressor kicks in then you know the problem is with your condenser fan motor and not your compressor. If the start components are bad you will usually hear a clicking noise from the compressor every 10-15 mins or so.

Hope this helps _MJ_

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
