This is probably a high pressure reset on the condensing unit (outside unit). One thing you might try doing is cleaning the coils on this unit. You can do this by spraying water through the coils themselves. MAKE SURE YOU DISCONNECT POWER BEFORE DOING THIS!!!!!!!!

Hope this helps Ya

I have a 7kw Kohler marine generator that shuts of when boat gets up on plane New impeller New fuel filter I started it runs for a while then shuts off It takes a bit to start but runs for 20 plus hrs


I take it that this unit runs the power on board and is permanently fixed in the boat
you mention new impeller so logically that means that it is water cooled drawing the cooling water from outside (underneath the boat)
pursuing logic further if that is the case then there is a shut down circuit for the water flow to prevent overheating should the water inlet become blocked ( weeds, plastic cloth etc)
from your question and statement I would be looking in that area to make sure water flow is not restricted or the protection circuit is operational ( no corrosion in terminals and wires )

Efficiency of RV Rooftop Units Deteriorating???


If the overall effectiveness of you RV Rooftop AC seems to be much less than the day you bought, here is a simple procedure to keep it running cold and prolong the life of the unit.

Problems:
1. Air seems to not be blowing as cold as before
2. Compressor trips breaker during the hottest part of the day
3. Air at night works just fine but is lacking during the day

These problems can often be solved by simply cleaning out the condenser coil of the upper unit. You will need a phillips screwdriver and a water hose with a nozzle on it.

- Remove the upper shroud from the unit
- Gently spray water through the condenser coil watching from the fan side. BE CAREFUL, do not spray with too high of pressure nor sideways. Make sure you keep the nozzle spraying directly at the coils.
- Once the water begins to flow clearly through the condenser, you should be good to go. Make sure you get as much of the condenser clean as possible.

This will save the life of many RV Air Conditioners.

Tv randomly turns off. Not sure if it is overheating or if something is broken.


Hello,
It sounds as if you are having problems with the AC Power reaching the television. Please verify the cord is firmly seated the tv's ac inlet
Also check the wall outlet (and power strip) by plugging in a lamp into it and see if it flickers when the tv shuts off.
Good Luck!

Haier portable AC water collection tank full in one hour.


My unit was working fine for a couple years but now it won't evaporate. It still cools fine but it also collects about 16 ounces of water every hour and then shuts itself off until I drain it. I'm wondering it the evaporative mechanism it broken some how.

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 laptop shuts down automatically.is there any problem of virus?


Possible but not likely. Sounds more like possibly overheating (sitting on unbreathable surface, fan(s) broken)...compromised power supply...battery bad (if running on battery). Check to see if fans are running. If fans are on the bottom of the unit make sure air can get to them. Try running on AC with battery out see if problem persists.
Hard to be sure without having possession of computer.
Hope this helps.
Good luck

RUUD AC cycles warm & cold 24/7


Hello Anna Sounds like the compressor is overheating and stoping on overload internally.Then it cools down restarts and runs into overload again.I would like to see the freon pressures when running.Could have a clog/restriction in piping.I dont like that you went thru a compressor already, the original installition is suspect.The original (1st) failure cause must be corrected.Check the TXV valve replace, filter/dryer look for a kinked pipe are ideas for overheating.Make sure condenser coil is free (ari flow)& clean also.

HP PAVILION ZV 6000 SHUTS DOWN AFTER LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES


Is this on battery or power supply?
If on AC power supply, then it sounds like a heat related issue.
Make sure you can hear the cooling fan running and you may need to blowe the dust out of it with a can of compressed air.
