AC compressor not kicking on

Locate the AC compressor Relay. A relay is used because the coil in the compressor clutch that must be activated to allow the compressor to turn pulls a large amount of current. The controls themselves inside the passenger compartment (switches) are not capable of transferring lots of current, only a little. The controls turn of the tiny AC Relay\'s coil that pulls very little current, and the contacts (switch) inside the relay CAN transfer the larger current to the compressor clutch coil. Nearly all cars and trucks work this way. The relays are not expensive and most are available at any any auto parts store. They go bad and either stop clicking on or the contacts wear out and although they still click they aren\'t making any connections anymore. I would replace it. If that doesn\'t take care of it look for a fuse in the fuse compartment. You can always keep a relay in the glove compartment as a spare.

Mitsubishi ac keeps on turning itself off

If the compressor overheats, the clixon circuit will shut off the power to the motor to prevent damage. Then when it cools it will close the circuit and the compressor will again run to only shut down again.
The suction line going to the compressor should be cold - the cold gas returning to unit cools the hermetically sealed motor. If that line is hot you may be low on refrigerant.

Hey there. I am having problems with my Emglo Dewalt d55151 compressor. I have taken it apart and and cleaned everything up. The reason I did all this was..because the cold start valve stays open and its...

The cold start valve will close when volume of air from compressor is sufficient to overcome spring under pin (allows the motor to come up to speed). Evidently your compressor is producing very little air. Usually the problem is leaking or broken reed valves or gaskets. Remove the head and look for torn/ leaking gaskets and replace as needed. Examing the reed valves and seats and look for broken cracked reeds or worn seats. Some of the valve plates used in Dewalt compressors are made of aluminum and would fail. Parts are available at or local dewalt service center. Good luck with your repair.

Manually set and programmed temperatures but when turned to heat only cold it the compressor?

maybe or its had a gas leak so get a refrigeration mechanic there i am one but found out how much trouble refrigeration is i would go gas or wood for heating it was designed for heating where air con's are fridges with a reversing valve in them they were made to keep things cold, so if it is the compressor i would get rid of it and change to a wood or gas heater, as i said i am a refrigeration mechanic by trade but only move heat pumps to other locations to put in gas or wood or just remove the air con all together, and our clients arte always much happier with the change there also cheaper to buy and maintain than air con so i would seriously look towards getting rid of it, if it is a ducted system they can be changed for gas very easily you also want to look at other options if you went this way but seriously refrigeration is for keeping things cold to try and heat with it on adds extra value to thier sales and thats the hard truth about a hetaing device that in most cases on a very cold day is useless!!!!!

My bottom freezer has stopped producing cold air, fan still works, any thoughts ideas, Daniel

if the compressor keeps switching on and off in short bursts, its your gas thats finished. it may need a regas. gas being finished may be from either standing a long time, it being an old freezer, or a gas leak. you'll need a repairman to regas it and also for checking for leaks.

My 40 l does not wan to keep stuff cold teh motor kicks in only mometarily, can it be in need of a gas refill and does it ide normal aircon gas? It can get cold by itself but if you stick it with drinks...

If The motor is switching on for short periods, you either have a faulty compressor or a blockage. My money is on a blockage. Once cover is removed to allow you to see the compressor, look for a small fat copper tube that has a small 1/4 inch copper pipe on one side and a thin capillary tube connected on the other side DRIER). Flex this very thin pipe connected to the small fat tube(DRIER) untill it breaks.Gas will come out. Wait untill all gas is out then reswitch on and see if compressor still continues to switch off on short intervals. If it can run for at least 1 min without switching off, then get a Refr.Tech to come and replace drier and regas unit.

Fridge does not stay cold

If the compressor is running continually, could be short of gas , or a compressor problem, ie not pumping properly,make sure it has plenty of ventilation

Fan running but not keeping cold

check to see if the compressor is running, if not you may need a start kit, (relay,overload) If the compressor is running take the back freezer panel off and check to see if there is a frost pattern, might be out of gas if frost pattern has receeded
