Could be the starter contactor, the capacitor or the compressor by itself . You can see the condition of the starter and maybe clean or if it looks bad , must be replaced. The same goes for the capacitor if the compressor is humming. But if the compressor motor is not starting up , please check for starting current with a clamp tester, if it goes higher and stalls then the compressor/motor is faulty.
Might need help to do an overhauling.
I hope this advice helps.

I have a Fedders A6X08F2A-B Service # and Serial # MP 178550 and I would like to have the specs on it eg: how many BTU's, model # etc


Hi, The numbers you have given tell me, this unit is a 8,000 btu unit.!2, 000 btu's equal a ton of cooling, so you are just under a ton. This is about all I can tell you. There should be a data plate that will give you amps, volts, compressor amps ect.

The compressor is probably going out on either a pressure related or heat related overload. Both are a result of low refrigerant. There may be a low pressure safety swich that protects the compressor. Otherwise it may be an internal thermal overload that is tripping. It resets itself and comes back on. The thermal overload heats up and shuts off the compressor to protect it from too much heat which is gernerated by not enough refrigerant in the system to keep the compressor cool. It may be cheaper to replace the unit than have someone try and fix it. It is pretty time consuming and you cannot try it yourself unless you have an EPA Certificate to buy the refrigerant. Check with your local appliance repair man to see if he will tackle it.

Compressor


Just have a local refrigeration store to match the numbers on the top of the compressor. It will go by BTU more than HP. Standard refrigerator uses 800 BTU's while side by sides use 1000 to 1200 BTU's..Sea Breeze
