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.

Why tempstar 5000 High Efficiency a/c outside fan won't turn off ?


Sounds like your contactor is sticking in your outside unit. They could be welded shut.

Outdoor fan will stop running and compressor overheats and shuts off. it wont come back on til u reset it at the thermostat. the outdoor unit has a new compressor and fan motor.


I realize the outdoor unit has a new compressor and fan motor - therefore - both those components should be ok - however - the fan motor 'should not' be going off - and the fact that it is going off is what is causing your compressor to overheat and shut off.
The reason the fan motor is going off is - it is bad (breaking down electrically) and is going off on the internal overload. If this is the case (a) the motor needs to be replaced or (b) it's possible that the fan capacitor needs replacing; but fan capacitors generally do not cause much problem, and when they do go bad they usually develop an obvious (to the eyes) bulge. If the capacitor has a bulge in it - I would surely change it out -and probably would (as a shot in the dark) anyway - since they are relatively cheap ($10-$15).
In your complaint you say that "the outdoor fan will stop running and compressor overheats and shuts off." If it happens 'exactly' that way then I'm betting your problem will be that the fan motor is defective as mentioned above, with an outside chance of the capacitor being defective, in which case if it isn't the capacitor - you will need a new fan motor. Note: outside fan motors are notorious for being fickle and it would not surprise me in the least to find a fairly new outside motor that is defective. I would check and see if you had any warranty on it.
All that being said - it is also possible that your outside unit has a 'high pressure cut-out switch,' although most units don't have them anymore, these days. However, if you have such a switch - it is possible (very likely) that it is shutting off the AC. Note: a high pressure cut-out switch will 'shut the entire outside unit off,' not just the fan motor. If that is what is happening then there's a good chance you have such a switch.
If it is happening that way, (the entire outside unit stops) then I would try 'washing the outside coil' really, really good and see if it will run ok afterwards.
Note: outside coils are sometimes difficult to get clean - sometimes requiring you to disassemble to some degree in order to make sure you get them clean.
Always, Always turn all power (including inside thermostat) OFF when washing the outside coil.

My air conditioner has stop working its blowing air inside but the fan is not spinning outside .....


If the fan is not running is the compressor not running also...if neither is running the possible reasons are 1..no power to outside unit...2..bad contactor on outside unit.is this buzzing if it is this indicates no power...3 bad capacitor,do both compressor and fan humm then quit humming and hum some more...4 high pressure switch has shut unit down because fan wasnt running if compressor was running but not fan....if your unit has this there will be a manual reset button where the lines come out of unit...if compressor was running and fan was not...1 bad fan...2 bad capacitor.. if you do not have any electrical knowhow i would recommend calling a hvac tech to come and fix unit...Thanks

yes the fan will shut down during the defrost cycle. But the fan only shuts down during this cycle....other than defrost the outdoor fan motor should be running during a call for heat.

Bryant central air unit fan doesn't stop.


This is a condenser fan and as long as the A/c unit is in cool mode, this fan will run. The only time it should shut off is when temperature setting is satified and the unit shuts off.

Blower fan keeps shutting on/off,


Your blower fan turning on and off shows your thermostat is working. I am willing to bet you have the fan in the automatic condition. Check for a sticking contactor at the outside unit.
