Feel the heat on the compressor if its too hot to hold your hand on it then
Check capacitor
You might install a hard start kit on compressor(Ask your local a/c appliance parts store to explain installation.)
Check fan air volume. inside and outside

Ac compressor runs 5 min shuts off then restarts 10 minutes later for another 5 min fan runs ok


Shutting down on safety. It's likely a pressure switch, possibly low pressure if fan is running.

Why is my air conditioner unit only running properly on cool days? when its hot out it only runs about 5 mins at a time then shuts off to fan and dont come back on for another 20 mins.


Do you hear a click sound as the compressor shuts down? If so that is the clixon (heat sensitive circuit breaker) that is opening and shutting down the compressor when it overheats. You have not had the AC filled with refrigerant so overfilling the unit cannot be an issue.
And if it is not overfilled overheating is caused by excessive current going into the motor which could indicate a problem with the motor windings..

OR, If the thermostat is faulty it could be prematurely shutting down the compressor. If you jump (bypass) the therm and unit does not shut off then you have found the culprit.

Top drawer stops, will restart if I push start


Sounds like a micro switch problem to me, telling the dishwasher that the drawer is open when it is not actually open.

2000 mazda 626 4 cyl a/c problem - unit runs for 15- 20 min then compressor shuts down. If you shut car down for 20 - 30 min a/c function will resume


Might be time to get some r134a freon added. When the car sit's it will build up pressure and when the pump kicks on it looses the pressure and goes into safety mode to not burn up the pump. If you do it yourself get the dye and pag oil also with the freon. It is very tricky to do it yourself so follow instructions carefully. Then check with UV light to see if it's leaking.

Air massage runs 20 min. then shuts down. when I restart it right away it only runs a short time.


air systems have a built in timer on them. 20 mins.
they are supposed to be shut off for 20 mins to cool the blower down then can be turned on again.

Must wait 30-40 mins to restart engine


Check your manual to see if it call for premium or regular. Premium has less energy per gallon and is designed for higher compression engines. What makes it "premium" is more anti-knock compounds - not better quality or performance. Sounds like a vapor lock problem that resolves as the engine cools. Regular gas may help with that.
