Question about Samsung Heating & Cooling

Open Question

I have Samsung AW15ECB7 AC unit. After the unit's timer counted down, it briefly started then shut off completely. I reset the in-line circuit breaker (which appears fine) but the unit will not start at all. The unit has ran before on this receptacle without any problems. The other AC unit I purchased at the same time is working fine. Thank you, Randy

SOURCE: Duo Therm compressor tries to start and kicks out

I don't think these little units have a start capacitor but what I would do is check that the on/off switch wires to make sure they aren't loose. Also check the wires to the compressor for loose wires as well. It is possible that these are the first signs that the compressor is about to fail. They also can act up some when they haven't been used for awhile and then you try and start them up. Try running the unit for a few hours without asking it to cycle. It might just be a sticky valve.

SOURCE: 579 series, 13.5K BTU Rooftop trips AC circuit breaker in hot weather...

Is your condensing unit located in a well ventilated area and have an ample space, atleast a foot, from the rooftop flooring? Just make a check that free flowing outside air properly ventilates the condensing unit specially on high ambient temperatures. Hope this would solve your problem

SOURCE: Heil Max Performance 10 Heat Pump not working

First check to see if you have afloat switch inside the air handler ar underneath the air handler. Its purpose is to shut the outside ac off if the drain stops up. Very common. If this is OK take cover off unit and with screw driver push in the contactor. It is located about the middle of the panel. It has main power at the bottom. If unit comes on you cave a control voltage problem. Meaning something is not allowing 24 volts to the contactor. If your out of Refrigerant the low pressure swich will have it off. Call a service tech. Rusty

SOURCE: AC runs for 5 minutes and then circuit breaker

What else do you have running on hydro while AC is running? Such as coffee maker, microwave, water heater, fridge. That 30 amp breaker is your main breaker I assume, or breaker on pole your plugged in to. Keep in mind your AC will normally draw approx. 15-17+ amps momentarily when compressor kicks in to cool, then drop back to 12-15 amps when running normal. If your AC is drawing too much current, then you would only normally trip 20 amp breaker for AC in your panel. Try switching other appliances to gas operation while running AC, such as water heater, and fridge. Make sure incoming voltage is up to specs as well . (115-120 volts)
If water heater takes 5-8 amps, and fridge takes same when they are calling for power, you'll be close or over the 20amp mark when you consider your on board converter etc. as well. That only leaves approx 10 amps for AC that requires approx 15 amps to run, and up to 20amps when compressor kicks in. If you switch all those other items over to propane, and it still happens, then a current draw test should be done on AC unit to see if perhaps a capacitor is faulty, or possible compressor faulty.

My Samsung CoolTech Model SR-L709EVSS fridge and freezer works for a few days and then goes off by its self and then works again. What could the problem be?


Only time these units completely shut down is when the defrost timer shuts down all power to the compressor and condenser/evaporator motors. Only the bulb works.
If that timer gets stuck somehow that would explain the complete shutdown and mysterious restart later .

Compressor UP6 25 125, runs all the time but is only under load for a short time, should it shut down between loads?


This unit will shut down if unloaded for a set period of time. Usually 5 to 10 minutes. This time could be longer if some one has changed it from the factory setting. There is a timer in the control box that starts counting down when the unit unloads. If it stays unloaded long enough for the timer to count down the unit will stop until the air pressure drops to the low set point on the pressure switch. It will then start up. If the unit loads before the counter counts down the timer starts from the beginning when it unloads again. This cycle continues until you manually shut it down or you stop using air long enough for the timer to reach Zero and shut down.

Can not shut entire timer off.


To disconnect a box timer so it does not run or control the circuit, then remove wires from terminals.
If you simply want to override timer now and then, then remove trippers from timer dial. Then use manual override switch to set timer ON or OFF.
If you remove wires from terminals, and want circuit to operate, then as a general rule, you connect black wires together and connect white wire together. However you did not specify which timer you have and timers and circuits vary, so it would be wise to test the wires.

Sharp Microwave Model R-9H84B Timer problem


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour and try again.

If it still doesn't work, it would probably be a failed circuit board, and the oven would have to be retired since these are no longer available.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
