Have you checked that the controls are not set to fan only? If you have lets go to the next step. All window A/C have thermal switch.. These thermal switch keeps the compressor from overheating. In the event that the compressor is overloading it would trip then click back on as the compressor cools down. Sometimes those switches go bad but the compressor is ok. They are mounted on the compressor themselves and accesable once the A/C unit cover has been opened.

Not cooling or freezing


Do you hear the compressor kick on, or try to kick on?If not, unplug the unit, remove the "overload relay" from the compressor and give it a shake. If it rattles, it is burnt out and needs to be replaced. Here is the new part.


If the "overload relay" is good, check to see if the "defrost timer" is stuck in the defrost mode. You can take a flat-head screwdriver and turn the timer til it clicks and it should start the compressor.
Keep me posted!

Hello, My Feder Air conditioner model number A2Q10F2C. The air conditioner has worked great up until today. It has been off since yesterday and turning it on today I can hear electric going into the unit...


Check for a bad start relay/capacitor on compressor. That motor will not start running unless it gets a kick in the behind from those devices.

LG AC compressor problem


Compressor may be locking up. Run capacitor may be weak or loose wire. Sounds like major voltage drop off as unit head pressure increases.

Compressor kicks out and it's new


First of all, clean your outside coils so that you are assured of good cooling air. The compressors have an overtemp device that is usually internal to protect them against heat. If you have an air compressor use it to blow out the coils good. If the compressor will start, the capacitor is good so it sounds like a cooling problem with the compressor

AC does not cool. Compressor kicks on and off (Humms when trying to start, electrical smell)


There are a couple possibilities:

1. If this is the first time you've started them for the season, one of the compressors might be seized up from sitting over the winter. In which case, new compressor required.

2. If you've just had the compressor serviced including recharging the system, it's possible that the system is simply overcharged. This will stop the compressor from working and giving you the same symptoms as above. If this is the case, you should have the service people come back with some guages and recover some of the refrigerant and the compressor should be fine.

3. If the unit has been sitting and there is a slow leak then there is not enough pressure in the system to allow it to run. The compressor will shut down if there is not enough pressure, but since you say there is a smell, i really doubt this is the case.

Most likely it's #1 or #2 above. If you haven't had it serviced recently, then yeah, it sounds like you're in need of a new compressor.

Good luck.
