The part is probably under warranty as you have stated but the labor is most likely not and that would be why the installer is not responding.. Not right but thats what some choose to do.. Report them if you feel called to do so.. and then contact these folks..

Compressor doesn't kick in


If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the air conditioner there may be a problem in one or more of these areas:

Sharp AF-M808X air conditioner. suddenly there is only fan air movement. there is no longer any cooling; turning the thermostat knob to a higher level doesn't "kick in" the coolant. but...


Simple test: the thermostat in your unit is electromechanical - unplug the unit from the mains, take it out and measure the resistance between the 2 electrical contacts, if it doesn't goes to near 0 when you turn it even a little bit then it's defective and it will have to be replaced.
If the resistance does indeed goes to near 0 then the defect is in the AC system. Another simple test: open the casing of the unit and put your hand directly on the compressor; now turn the thermostat button. If it doesn't vibrate then the starting capacitor of the compressor has failed and it will have to be replaced with a similar one.If it vibrates then the cooling circuit has got a leak and all the fluid has been lost. For that you will have to call a pro that will solder the leak shut and refill the circuit with the appropriate fluid - only he will have it, it's not sold on the customer market.

Hi, I have an amana ap125hd portable air conditioner and for some reason is doesn't produce cold air anymore. Then fan blows and the compressor kicks in, but to no avail, no cold air. I took the unit...


replace it,most likely the freon leaked out,if the compressor is running and the fan is blowing but not getting cold most likely you have a leak in the sealed system.

Our frigidaire window a/c unit (model faa067p7a) does not seem to be operating properly. There is no condensate forming anywhere (beneath the coils is dry and no evidence of water and there is no water...


It sounds like your unit is low on freon or the compressor is not kicking in. If the compressor kicks in you can hear it turn the unit on fan only or turn the thermostat off then turn the unit to demand cool you should hear a hum even vibration when the unit kicks in. If there is no audible hum ect... your compressor is probably not kicking in. The selector switch the temp switch the capacitor for the compressor or the compressor its self could be bad. good luck if you need to know how to test any of the above let us know

Room a/c works great for hours and then compressor just stops


the unit may be knocking off on defrost if the coil is getting v cold,

check for full airflow over the indoor unit/evaporator coil, check filters fan operation and coil condition. Likewise it may be overheating so check the same on the outdoor unit/condenser clean coil and fan operation.

Unlikely but the unit may be under performing and slightly short on refrigerant, not providing enough suction cooling to the compressor motor so the internal over temp klixon would cut it off for short periods, to cool the motor.

From hours of 12 pm till bout 6 pm my ac doesn: wana kick on but when it starts cooling down my central unit works all nite kickes on and off like it suppose to could it be the compressor or compasitor


Do you have a programable thermostat? It probably is not the capacitor, maybe the compressor overload
which cuts the unit off if it gets to hot.

Have you cleaned the condensor?

Rooftop RV Air Conditioner: temp outside 90 or above. compressor kicks off ....


It sounds like maybe an overload for the compressor is tripping and resetting once the compressor cools. Possibly due to a low charge.

Kenmore AC Model 25370156000 keeps shutting off and on by itself


If you have just installed this unit in your window for the season, you may want to wait a day or so, for everything in the unit to settle, and try again. You make have shaken it up a bit too much. If not.....sounds to me like it is kicking out on high head pressure. This happens when refrigerant gets too low, or there is air in the refrigerant system. There is nothing you can do to solve this problem, except take it to a repair shop. If I am correct what happens is you turn the unit on, and the fan and compressor start simultaneously, then after a few seconds (maybe up to a minute) the compressor kicks off, and the air gets warm, then the compressor kicks on for a few seconds, and we repeat. This is actually a safety mechanism for the compressor motor so it does not run without refrigerant. (That would destroy the pump.)
