Your machine is protecting itself from a fault of some type. More than likely, unless you are a AC mechanic, you will have to have this professionally repaired. Without a code, it is difficult to give you additional information.

I would expect it needs protection because of a coolant leak, air block, motor stall.

You may want to consider posting your question in the "local repair" section of FixYa.com. In that section, mechanics in your area can contact you directly to assist in the repair of your system.

    I am not an AC mechanic but somewhat handy. I opened the outside unit and noted the solenoid does not actuate when power is turned on. I am going to try to replace the solenoid contactor for $25 and see if that solves the problem. If not, I'll have to hire someone to fix it.
    Thanks,

    I am somewhat handy also ...



    My question to you, in light of the new information you have presented, is ... this solenoid you are spending $25.00 on to replace ... because it is not activating ... is that because it is faulty or is it because the "protection circuit" is not allowing it to come on (for self preservation). Have you independently evaluated its mechanical operation - translation: if you turn off the power to the unit, can you apply an external power source to the solenoid and activate it? Have you performed a continuity test on the coil of the valve? If you can activate it independently from the unit, it is doing what it is suppose to do ... and you will have spent $25.00 to replace a perfectly good functioning part, and, you will have accomplished nothing. If there is no power going to the solenoid, you have to go back in the circuit and find out why the next component is not allowing power to come on. Low pressure - Hi pressure - no pressure - blockage - blown fuse - other condition)



    I can tell you my friend - I have LOTS of experience in this area - I have made LOTS of unnecessary trips to the store to purchase LOTS of replacement parts for parts that were not faulty to begin with. I AM NOT SAYING this is the situation in your case!!! I am saying that is my experience.



    Sometimes, the best way to communicate a idea by another example.



    In your automobile, there is a switch that reads pressure in your car's AC system. If it reads pressure, that switch allows other components of the system to operate. If there is no pressure, there is probably no or low coolant in the system. This switch prevents the AC from coming on. If it came on with low or no coolant, you could damage the system requiring expensive repair to expensive parts. You can short this switch out and make the AC work ... guess what happens next ... expensive repairs.



    I think there is some other trouble with your AC - I wish you good luck and I hope you are able to repair what ever the trouble is. Don't be afrade to call in a Pro to look at it. Handi as I am ... I call the pro when necessary (and hate every second of it - watch him like a hawk - and try to learn)



    I will leave you with this ... My old preacher buddy who spent most of his life in the bush in darkest Africa said 'Things are made to work. Things are not made to not work. Everything can be brought back into order if you will study them'



    Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com

    Thank you for your 4 thumbs up ... I need all the thumbs up I can get ...



    I hope you get your AC working before the hot season begins ...

Outside unit is not working


Aside from checking the circuit breaker for the unit, the unit should be looked at by a qualified service technician. You would need certain test instruments and a working knowledge of the unit's operation system to find the problem.

Problem with Air Conditioner


there will be an access panel where the motor is located. 1st thing to check is fuse or circuit breaker feeding the air handler. this is on seperate power from compressor unit outside and usually has a fused or breakered disconnect on the side of the unit. if fuses are good or breaker is not tripped then switch fan mode to on. if blower runs in on but not in auto then it is a thermostat problem. if still no go then turn off power, remove access panel and find the squirrel cage fan blade. make sure it turns freely. it is very common for these motors to go bad. it can usually be removed easily and taken to a motor shop. I use Roy's Electric in Richmond, Va. They can test the motor on the bench and replace it if it is faulty.

We have one of the ACC108PS air conditioners that is not cooling right - do we need freeon - if so is it rechargeable?


Start your window air conditioner troubleshooting with checking the different modes of operation to see which components operate. Turn the unit fan to on and the cool and heat modes off. If the fan does not operate, check the power supply to the unit. Check to see if the breaker or fuse for the unit is tripped. If the breaker/fuse is tripped, check to make sure that it is the proper size circuit for the unit you have. On some units, there is a current interrupter on the power cord to the unit. Check to see if it is tripped by pushing the reset button.
If the circuit is the proper size, then you can go ahead and reset the breaker/fuse. If it trips again, then you require further troubleshooting. Shut the power off and check all of the wiring in the unit to make sure that none of the connections is loose or damaged.
If the fan does not operate but the fuse/breaker is not tripped, you should check the run capacitor for the fan and compressor. If the capacitor is good but the fan motor does not operate, you can check the fan switch and the fan motor. Ensure that the fan blades spin freely.
If the fan motor operates but the compressor does not start, change the capacitor but first you should feel the compressor with your hand. If it is very hot, then you should allow it to cool.
Then, you should attempt to start the unit in the cooling mode. As you do so, listen for a clicking sound which is an indication that it is attempting to start. If the compressor starts but does not cool properly, the unit may be low on refrigerant.
If the compressor attempts to start but shuts off very quickly, the compressor could be bad. You could try installing a "Hard Start"



If the compressor does not attempt to start, ensure that the thermostat is set below room temperature. On units with a mechanical control, you will hear a click when you adjust the temperature. That is an indication that the thermostat is working properly.

AC compressor wiil not turn on


You will have to find the contactor which is located in the outside unit. And check the voltage at the contactor, 26 v as this is the thermostat calling for the compressor to come on. You can also push in the contactor and see if the fan and compressor start. There should be an outside fuse box close to your condensing unit. Good luck

THE MONITOR OF INDOOR UNIT DISPLY ALL THE


This could be caused by a blown circuit breaker or fuse inside the unit, a damaged compressor or fan motor, faulty wires connecting the compressor or fans to the control board unit, a faulty or hung relay on the control board (this can sometimes be solved by tapping the relay with a screwdriver), or the starter capacitor for the compressor or fan motor.

Both inside and outside units did not come on in cool mode


hi there,
thermostat located on your evaporator is adevice where in if temperature set up is acquired the power source will cut off until on specific time that when small heat absorbed thermostat will activate again or this auto activated.meaning there is a differtianl temperature acquited to run this device.this depent how you set up your temperature setting.the over load protection device located mostly on control panel is one tripping off.this is the device you have to reset in order to run the unit again if malfunction., if short circuited or highr current occured on compressor this device protect your motor to burn it will trip off your unit.several factors you can consider in tripping unit,fan motor not running,dirty evaporator and condenser,loosen wiring connection and faulty wiring.sometimes circuit on panel board are envaded by insect mostly ants they need heat for there egg to hatch, they davastated the circuit.check on this.have a nice day don't forgert to rate me thank's.

I had this problem several years ago. In order for the water to flow, the outside temperature sending unit must indicate to the controller that it is less than 60F. If not, the unit will not operate outside of test mode. Check the temp outside where your sending unit is (could the sun be heating that side of the house?) and ensure that the circuit to the sending unit is working. I had a bad wire splice inside a wire nut stopping the circuit. Took me a long while to figure it out.

If the outside temp and your sending unit circuit is ok, I wish you luck on your troubleshooting.

My colmen central air unit is not working properly. The Outside unit is not working. The problem initally arouse in June, but it "self corrected" after having the A/C unit turned off. Since that...


If nothing is running outside at times you probably have a weak contactor coil that is not pulling the contactor in all the time. If the outside fan comes on but not the compressor, the compressor is over heating and shutting off on overload protection. This could be a dirty condenser coil, low on refrigerant, the compressor it's self. The compressor comes with a 5 yr. warranty.

Ruud heat pump outside unit trips circuit breaker


Check your wiring between the contactor and compressor for a short to ground, or check the compressor windings for short to ground.
With the Tstat off, the contactor should be open so the only way for the compressor to be trying to do anything is if the 110 volts from the unbroken side are traveling through the compressor to ground. Since 110v is not enough to run it, the overload is kicking it out, cooling off, and repeating the cycle. When you kick on the Tstat, the contactor is supplying voltage directly to ground without going through the resistence of the compressor windings and kicking the breaker.
Post back and let me know what you find.
