Question about Samsung AS18A6RB Air Conditioner
The compressor provides the cooling capacity for the air conditioner. If the compressor or its electrical controls are defective the compressor may try to start, fail, and create an electrical overload. If the unit does create an overload, every compressor circuit is also equipped with an overload safety switch. The safety switch is designed to protect the compressor from burning out. The safety switch will cut the power to the compressor for a certain length of time and then reset itself. When it resets it will allow the electricity to flow to the compressor once again. If the compressor then starts, the unit should function normally. If the compressor doesn't start when the overload resets, the overload will again cut the electricity to the compressor. This cycle will continue indefinitely. (Always allow three to five minutes before restarting the compressor.)
If this problem if not addressed on time, is often fatal to the air conditioner because the cost of repair often exceeds the price of a new air conditioner.
If this situation is occurring, unplug the air conditioner and get help from a qualified repair technician.
On the other hand, If you have some electrical knowledge and are not afraid of working with 220v, let me know and we can do some testing. You'll need a voltmeter and some basic tools. Good luck!!
