It may be overcharged now. Let some of it out until it stays running.
Why did you add freon? if it needed freon then you must also have a leak or a bad compressor
What was the issue with the a/c to lead you to putting in freon?

Ac unit runs, inside blower shuts off after 2 mins, compressor continues to run, t-stat still calling for cool


My central AC unit decided to stop on the hottest day of the year. It would start and run normally for a few minutes and then the blower would shut off. After checking the breakers, thermostat and overflow shut off (did not have one) I saw something about a blower motor capacitor. This was easy to get to and replace and my last hope before waiting for someone to come fix it. The capacitor cost $4.04 with tax and had my AC working again. Needless to say I was beyond happy. I hope this can help others with a similar problem.

My colman rooftop ac unit shuts off after 5 min of use wait 5 more and you can turn it back on again when its running it works great its on a 1984 holiday rambler and has very low hours?


Try a new fan motor. It runs about $125.00, It will run a few min. then will trip the motor themal switch. you can probably still here the compressor running. It may also trip the breaker on shore power . good luck! the part you are looking for is a 1/3 hp 115vac 2 speed 1580/1020 rpm part number #1468-3069

On my window unit the compresser only runs for 15 sec. and shuts off for 4 min. the fan stays running.. its not cooling the room


possably a problem with the outside condensor fan motor. Pls check
1.) when unit is running is the outside fan motor also runnng. My guess is the outside fan is locked bad motor ect. Unit would only run maybe 30 seconds before cycling on its overload

My outside unit runs a little while then shuts off.


More likely the out door fan motor has bad bearings and that would cause the out door unit to run for 15 to 20 min but it could be low on freon
when the out door unit runs after 3 to 5 min the larger of the two copper lines going into the unit should be ice cold

If the thermostat you just installed has a time delay that will keep the indoor blower motor running for up to 5 min after the unit shuts off
