This is a stuck contactor relay. The points of contact have welded themselves closed. If it is turning off and on then the problem is in the control wiring. Both problems should be addressed by a licensed technician. Good Luck!

Mitsubishi ac keeps on turning itself off


If the compressor overheats, the clixon circuit will shut off the power to the motor to prevent damage. Then when it cools it will close the circuit and the compressor will again run to only shut down again.
The suction line going to the compressor should be cold - the cold gas returning to unit cools the hermetically sealed motor. If that line is hot you may be low on refrigerant.

My fan works but compresor wont turn on unit is 8 months


When you turn the air conditioner on make sure you are getting voltage to the compressor itself by using a voltmeter 110 volts. If you are you probably have a faulty compressor.

3amp fuse is blowing.


Disconnect the yellow wire from the thermostat and tape off the end. Turn the power back on. If the fuse blows, it is not in your wire nor the compressor contactor. If the fuse does not blow, turn off the power, reconnect the wire, and replace the fuse. Then, disconnect the wire from the compressor contactor and tape it off. Turn the power back on. If the fuse blows, it will eliminate the compressor contactor coil and will likely be a "short" in the wire itself. The yellow wire goes from your T-stat to your air handler and from your air handler, it goes to the oudoor unit's compressor contactor.

Compress dose not turn on


If all electrical is correct going to the a/c unit then there are four possible causes as to why this the compressor does not turn on. 1. Bad Capacitor (most common) 2. Low refrigerant/ High pressure cut-off (unit protecting itself) 3. Bad compressor (ground short within the compressor) 4. Compressor blow out - one of the three wires may be burnt off where the leads enter the compressor.
Be sure to turn off power disconnect before servicing unit!!
