Wont get cold

Power on unit will run for five minutes then cycle off for 20 min , never get cold. thermostat set for max cool. the thermostat will "click" whem the compressor is running but have no "click" when the compressor is not running. The thermostat also has some kind of bare copper wire running down to the compressor area. ??? I noticed that there are two output connectors on the thermostat, the one it was connected to has no power when the unit has cycled off and thats probably why it does not get cold. I switched the output to the other connector and the thermostat does not seem to work but the unit will get very cold. Do I need a new thermostat? and what is that wire running to the compressor area? I also noticed that the fan is not turning when I open the door. fritz_curtis@msn.com

Frigidaire AC window unit, model fam185r2a (18,500 BTU) only cools for a few minutes before it cycles off and just fan blows. Then a few min later cool air cycles back on. Is this a thermostat issue?


The window units normally have a sensor thats attached to the front of the indoor coil. This controls the thermostat. I usually pull this sensor away from the coil because it stops cooling before the room is cool. It is attached to the cold coil so it senses the coil temp, not the room temp. You can normally see it when you remove the air filter. Don't break it! It may be a wire or small copper tube

Can hear compressor, cois get frosty but fan cuts out after five minutes. Why?


IF THE FAN IS CUTTING OUT U MAY HAVE STUCK TIMER IN THE DEFROST CYCLE MODE BUT MORE LIKELY U HAVE A POWER ISSUE, IS THIS A digital cold control thermostat? if so the control board itself may not be communicating with the thermostat, when the fan cuts out does the compressor keep running? and no clicking sounds?

Dryer will heat when put on 70 minute cycle but will not heat total time. if you put it on 20 minute cycle will not heat at all.


Hi, Some dryers have a cooling cycle that lasts for 20 minutes to cool the drum and its contents so you don't burn yourself when getting clothes out.

alot of machine have a max drying time of 120 minutes 20 of that will be for cooling so 100 mins hot!

the cooling cycle is usually indicated near the end of the dial in a different colour to that of the hot cycle.


Hope this helps.

The airconditioner runs and blows cold ai. When


Hi, the only thing that could cause this to happen would be the thermostat. This is the main part that controls the roof top unit, getting its signal from the stat to come on and maintain the correct temperature. I would replace it with the same type and this will solve your problem. The only other thing that would cause any unit to cycle like this is if you had bad thermostat wiring touching together some where. I don't think this is the problem with yours though. With the stat off and it still cycles on, this tells me for sure it is the stat. Change it out and you will be good again.
Sincerely,

My problem is when I turn on my air only kick in for a minute of cold air then it shuts down then warm air comes out for five minutes maybe less. my setting are at max cool thermostat at 7. at these...


if it is in the middle of winter that you are doing this it has still got a very slim chance of doing what you want... it is a thermostat afterall which is preset by the manufacturer, take the settings off automatic and turn onto cool only.... atleast that way you will not generate a heating signal

My air handler comes on ,not the outside unit when my thermostat is in the off position even if i turn the thermostat down to 50 and have it turned off the air handler comes on for about 5 to 10 minutes...


If you have a standard thermostat the fan switch is for the air handler only. It completely over rides the thermostat for most settings. Now lets see this is what I'd expect:
fan switch on Indoor fan runs all time
Fan switch auto Indoor fan only runs when thermostat is set to cool or heat and the thermostat is turned up above room temp for heat or below room temp for cooling. In both of these modes the furnace blower comes on and stays on til the room temperature is satisfied. The outdoor unit only comes on for AC the out door unit will not come on for heat or the "on" setting on the thermostat. See exception 1 & 2 below...

Exception 1- (in a heat pump the out door unit runs in both heat and cool mode unless it has emergency heat turned on then it will not come on outside in the heat mode, and depending on the type of heat pump and furnace or air handler it is). A heat pump thermostat usually has "backup heat" and an "emergency heat" setting switch on the thermostat.
Exception 2 - On some thermostats they are made to cycle on the heat if the temperature reaches a preset temp (around 50'f usually but definitely by 40'f). This mode prevents freezing when if instance the homeowner is away or while the home is under construction. In this mode the fan inside can run but the heat usually comes on with it.
Exception3 - On some electric furnaces the heating strips may be individually controlled and thus not all come on at one time. This may give the feel of no heat especially if the room is cold.

Now there may be other exceptions but Ive tried to give you a heads up on some of the most common ones.
If you need more help please post more specifics about your unit/system as to for sure what switches are set to what setting and what is happening with each. My first though was that maybe your system is OK and you needed to know if the thermostat was working properly.

If this helpd you understand your problem would you please give me as hifgh a mark as you can. Thnaks for using fixya and good luck.

Refrigerator stopped working, freezer works fine


Sounds like the evap fan is not running. The fan takes cold air from the freezer to cool the refer compartment. If the freezer is cold the compressor is running. Generally the freezer will stay cold since the cooling coils are there but it must have the fan working to get the air up to the refer area. Pull everything out the freezer and take the back panel off to view the coils and fan, etc. It's a simple easy job to change the fan. If you find the coils are a total block of ice then it's another problem... the defrost cycle isn't working. Sooo... see if the fan is running in the freezer compartment first. See http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA43-57.gif for fan location, item 18 is the fan motor. Let us know what you find out.
