If it is your outdoor unit that is short cycling check the condenser for air flow. Clean the coils by water washing them. Do not get water into the electrical parts of the fan motor.

I have a new Delonghi portable AC PAC N115EC (11,500BTU), is it normal for the compressor in this particular A/C to be cycling on/off every 2 to 3 minutes?


If the room is cool, it sounds like the unit is operating correctly. It could be short cycling because the unit is over sized for the room being conditioned. if you can, increase to size of the load by opening a door into another room. As long as the refrigerant pressures equalize from high to low side internally and the compressor doesn't start up under load, you should be fine

When in the heat mode the system will start and rune only a few seconds then stop. After a short pause the system will re-start and run ubitl the set temp is reached


Bruce, what you may be hearing is a short cycling of the fan and not a short cycling of the system. The fact that you indicate it only does it once per cycle kinda suggest that. If the ENTIRE unit was shutting down, it could indicate an adjustment in the 'heat anticipation' circuit on the thermostat sub-base was required. The heat anticipator is an adjustible resistor on non-digital thermostats that warm the spring that rotates the mercury bulb to cause it to shut off just a little bit before attaining setpoint...thus 'anticipating' the shut down temp and not 'overshooting' the setpoint.

Too low of a setting and the system will short cycle, too high of a setting and the system will overshoot the setpoint. The typical setting is .4 amp which is where the majority of sub-bases are set at from the factory.

KF9000e. Why does compressor cycle at short intervals?


Yes. due to low rpm of fan motor in the condensor copil. or dirty condensor coil. I If so, replace fan capacitor.
If all good, check the seating of condensor set. It needs minimum 2mtrs open space for air throw. If not due to overheat compressor gets short cycling on and off.

My ducted roof top Dometic Briskair will run fine when first turned on for one complete cycle, then the next cycling is short cycling, 2-3minutes on and 30-60seconds off.


Sounds like a low freon issue. Even though its cooling well at first after its run a cycle the amount of freon is to low causing it to cut out probably from lack of freon pressure. Get it checked soon cycling will definitely shorten the life of your compressor. Hope this helps Chris

Furnace keeps short cycling


short cycling is either from lack of air flow or improper heat anticipator on t-stat. Change your air filter. and check your t-Stat they are cheap.

My cARRIER ROF TOP IS SHORT CYCLING IN THE HEAT PHASE


have you checked the filters? May be cycling on the high limit due to not enough air going across the burners.

Also what type of thermostat do you have if it's a manuel one then the heat anticipator may be set wrong.

or the air from a register may be hitting trhe thermostat causing it to short cycle.

Brand new Haier HD656E dehmidifier keeps turning off and on - short cycling, like the humidity sensor is located in a bad place and can't decide whether it should be running or note.
