How long is the unit off before it restarts? These system are not designed to restart immediately after it shuts off. The system pressures need a chance to balance out before a restart is called for.

The compressor in my whirlpool stand up air conditioner is running fine but will only cool for a few mins then the cooling stops and the fan just blows. Any ideas?


If it is a capacitor start and run type, suspect the run capacitor. If not, suspect the start relay stuck or compressor on it's way out

Window air conditioner cools (very icy cool air) for a minute or two then switches to fan. Will then stay on fan for about 10 minutes and then once again get "very cold", but only for a minute or two


Before I even read that far into your post, I was thinking "thermostat" replace it...It seems to be failing badly. If you take it into logical perspective...normally the unit gets turned on, then takes a bit to get cold, then once it reaches its pre-determined temperature, turns the unit either "off" or just blows the fan...by kicking off the compressor. This unit you have is getting this cycle done within 5 minutes instead of a few hours...replace the thermo and you should be fine. Now if you could post the exact model number here I can go look up the part for you.

Hello, some window units do not use a drain tube instead they use the condenser fan blade to scoop the condensate from the bottum of the base pan and splash the condenser coil to keep the condenser cool and also evaporate the condensate. Most of the time you can hear a "swishing sound"

I've had this maytag 10000 btu slider casement air conditioner for approx 3 years. its installed in a window & has been used possibly 10 times. the fan motor comes on, however there is no cooling...


Check the thermostat, does it open and close (electrically)?

In the past three years, has the unit been cleaned? If the coil is plugged with dust, there may have been serious damage to the comressor.

With the unit unplugged, using a multi-meter, is there continuity between the switch hot tab and the compressor feed?

Is there a run capacitor on the compressor? If so, is it shorted or open?

These will give you a few places to start. If you do not know how to operate a multimeter, you need a contractor. Another option is to check your phone book and look for an local refrigeration school. Often, these schools will do the repairs if you pay for the parts.

Goldstar 10000 blows water out front


Two possible problems.
1. High humidity in the space being cooled
2. Drain line that runs from the front (where the water is blowing out) to the back where it is sent to evaporate. Clean out the drain line and condensate pan under the fins where the water is blowing out.

LG 10,000 btu air conditioner


I just bought the LG 10000 btu window model... I am having the same exact problem.. it feels like the air is not even on.. I am having someone look at it on Mon. I have a feeling the whole unit is defective. But it could be the thermostat needs to be replaced. Sucks 300 dollar brand new AC and it doesnt work!! Good luck. I will never buy LG again.

AC/Heatpump units cycle numerous times blowing ambient air.


If the compressor never kicks in, I would check the start capacitor, thermostat and the compressor windings. Most times the start capacitor is defective. Some window air conditioners the fan will run while the compressor stop through the thermostat switch. If the thermostat switch is bad every thing runs except the compressor. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
