Running Compressor Intermittently

Last night the I turn the AC to cool and the no matter where the thermostat is set the compressor will not turn on, fan runs fine, but no compressor. This morning I take the front cover off and check the wiring everything looks fine, put it back together and the compressor comes back on. It runs for a while and turns compressor off like it should. I leave it for a couple minuets then adjust the thermostat to try to get it to come back on, nothing. Also the thermostat seems to run high, by that I mean that it turns on only if above 7 (out of 9) or so. Any ideas?

    I have the same problem. it is a WG1005R.

    In the afternoon and late evenings, the compressor won't come 'till late evening 10:00 PM or so. It then works fine all night. It is set for 60 deg.

    The A/C sits in a window on West side of house. I can sometimes force the A/C to work if I turn the unit to the Dry selection.

    Where is the thermostat located? How do I get to it? And where can I locate one?

    Thanks

    Paul

Dawlance split ac


My guess is compressor motor overtemp cutout. So why is the motor overheating? Possibles: Needs bearing oil, bad bearings, compressor too much pressure, overfull with freon, mechanical friction, cooling fan not turning.

Suggest set thermostat to demand less cooling, see if compressor stays on longer.

AC is just blowing air. The compressor doesn't kick on.


no freon.. pressure test w/ nitrogen. 8000 btus is now junk. Spend the money on new unit otherwise find the leak. It leaked out thats why the compressor will never go on. Once you add freon she'll turn on...same as car.

Dont buy that name brand again. best of luck to you

Thermostat ?


The Air conditioner are good only the adjustment of thermostat are the problem, select the thermostat in lower #3 you observe the thermostat will off in such time temperature reach to #3 If you full adjustment the compressor will not off.
In fan selector the compressor will autamatic off because no connection attached fan only .
