Question about GE J AJCS08AZ Air Conditioner

2 Answers

I have GE AJES12DCBM1. Recently after one of the storm, it stopped cooling. Fan motor comes on. Compressor is also kicking on but it kicks off within a minute or two. Is it possible that the capacitor may be a problem or compressor itself?

I have found my outdoor unit would do that same thing and found that the unit has a low freon safety switch that won't allow the unit to stay on if its low on freon and it was doing its job to protect me from burning up the compressor . Always clean units at least once a year and have your unit checked for freon and or leaks . The storm may have been a coincidence and may have had nothing to do with the unit cycling on and off at all . Just a thought .

I have a Magic Chef Refridge MCBR 1010W that has stopped cooling, fan runs and you can hear it kick in but then kicks off? An Ideas?


If the compressor kicks in that tells you the compressor relay and board are probably good. HOWEVER, when you say it kicks off right away that is not a good indication! It sounds like a compressor problem. Is the compressor extremely hot or is the condenser coils icing up? If so, I wouldn't invest the money into repairing it, because it would cost more to repair than to replace.

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.

Kenmore Coldspot compressor kicking on and off


It sounds like you may have toasted one of the starting componets. Either the start relay or the start capacitor has probably failed, causing the compressor to try to start, and then kick off on overload. Hope this helps

Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan won't kick on


be aware that not repairing this asap that you are causing yourself more problems First I would change out the fan capacitor and see if this could be the problem. Secondly if the capacitor isn,t the problem change out the motor . By continuing to allow the system to cycle like this the compressor will take a dive on you costing more . Good Luck

1990 Dolphin Motorhome Dometic AC problem


If your fan motor is slowing or stopping mid cycle it will cause the compressor to over pressurize. Many compressors have aan internal mechanism that will kick in with a loud whooshing noise, then the Thermal protector shuts the compressor off, cools then restarts. If this sounds familiar, you will need to replace your fan motor before you burn up your compressor...which to be honest may already be irreparbly damaged(sorry). Hoping 4 the best.

Likely a bad motor, when this occurs verify the board is sending voltage to the motor.

Compressor turns on but not the fan.


Jeannine, on this model there is one motor that turns both the evaporator and condensor fans. First you want to check to see if there is any obstruction preventing the fans from turning. There is also a dual capacitor that gives this motor a kick start. If this goes bad the motor will not run, just humm. Hopefully it is just your capacitor that has failed but it could be the motor itself. Part number for the capacitor is 16-05-00710-109. Part number for the motor is 50-11-t26p0-050. Usually a bad capacitor will show signs of leaking or bulging, but not always...Catriver..post back
