Whats wrong when my unit coll good and runs good but when I turn it off the compressor keeps on running


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand the compressor to your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAM187S2A, runs all the time. I also see that no matter what option you put in on, including "OFF", the compressor will stay on, unless you unplug the appliance. There could be a couple different possibilities with this occurring. It could possibly be the switch behind the control board. It could possibly be the control board. It could possibly be something completely separate that is causing the compressor to stay on when you plug your air conditioner in. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine the exact cause. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

The unit won't stay on.


If the refrigerator wont stay on the start relay may be defective. This may have been caused by the leaking door that overloaded the system. The relay is a small box mounted to the side of the compressor and provides power to the compressor start winding for a split second at start-up to help get the compressor get started. If its defective the compressor may run off and on (a lot) or not at all and the refrigerator will not get cold enough. Fairly easy to do and reasonable

Ice machine harvest two times and shut off


These unit time freeze time and harvest times and keeps track of them. If your freeze time exceeds 35 minutes or harvest time exceeds 3 minutes, it will place unit in lockout. The biggest cause for excessive time to harvest is the harvest valve not functioning properly, and undercharged unit or a dirty condenser. The most probable cause is a dirty condenser. Under charged units can be determined by checking compressor outlet temperature while running, it should be 150 to 190 degrees depending on atmospheric conditions present. If it is harvest valve, the downstream temperature will stay at or near compressor discharge temperature. It should cool down to ambient temperature in a few minutes after freeze cycle begins.

I recently purchased a 20 gal/1.5 HP, model 921.166420. The reset button on the side of the motor, (thermal overload Protector?) cuts out repeatedly. The few times where the motor did run and the pr


Could be weak thermal cutout or actual problem with unit. Thermal cut out easy to check with amp meter. Connect meter as required to monitor draw as unit fills and make sure that it stays at or below usage stated. If amp draw stays below stated usage and thermal cuts out, replace the part. If amp draw goes over amount stated turn off compressor and listen for air leaks (usually check valve will leak back pressure to pump causing extra load on motor).

I have a kenmore model 253-70101 10,000btu window unit. Energy saver does not work until u unplug unit for about 10 min and then it only works 1 time and stays on all the time.


Looks like u have an overload problem, most likely compressor. Need to check with a multi-meter. Could also be high pressure lock-out. If you´re unit is Electonics, it would have to be reset manually and by that time, the hp condition gone down. Some also have a low compressor pressure disc that could be failing. Hope it helps Regards Guy

Compressor will not stay on.


very good possibility that it is low on freon. If indoor unit is blowing ambient air, not cooling is happening. If this is the case and you are sure the compressor is running and then shutting off, the compressor could be overheating and the internal overload is taking out the compressor. If outdoor fan runs and compressor runs, probably cause. If capacitor is bad, unit would most likely not run that long. While unit is running, feel the large line at the condensing unit. If it is cold, and stays cold, could be something else going on. If stays warm, most likely low on freon.

Kenmore AC compressor on and off while outside unit fan running


If the out door fan keeps running and the compressor cycles off that would be the overload in the compressor.
What keeps the windings cool is the refrigerant back to the compressor.
For the overload to cycle it would have to be either not enough cooling back to the compressor or high amp draw, which could be the metering device (txv or orifice) or low on charge, or other things would be a bad capacitor, sometimes a bad start relay not staying open, when compressor gets up to speed or anything causing the compressor to draw high amps.
To check the refrigerant, he needs to check the superheat at the compressor it should be appoximately 12° to15°, and next time the compressor goes off if you shut the power off and feel the top of the compressor and if it's hot 130° or higher it's probably refrigerant.

APi25HD compressor shuts down after a couple of hours


When was the last time the condenser coil was cleaned? you might start by checking it to see if it's very dirty and if it's not dirty, you may need a hard start kit for the compressor or the thermostat might be bad.
