I recently posted a possible solution to your problem in another similar thread (I put more detail in that post)...it sounds like the starter relay on the compressor has gone bad (if you take it off and you shake and hear pieces, that is your sign it is bad) - replace with Whirlpool kit 4387535.

My GE portable a/c will cool when I first turn it on. The compressor kicks on and it cools fine, but after it runs a few minutes it kicks off and never cools again. The fan just runs. It does not appear...


I would say that if it starts cooling when it's turned on, then it has freon in it. Sounds more like it's kicking off on high head pressure, meaning the condenser is not getting cooled, head pressure builds up then a safety limit switch shuts it down to save the compressor from burning out.. Is there a condenser fan maybe not operating? or are the condenser coils clogged up with dirt?

Fridge has a buzzing sound


Sounds of the start relay is struggling to get the compressor started. In most cases the start components will need replaced to prevent further damage to compressor and loss of food storage. In these cases I always test the compressor windings to insure the compressor winding are not breaking down. I will not be able to tell you the parts you will need but it is a sure deal, work will need to be done in this area. I will need your model number to assist in parts. I will give you a helpful link on a compressor windings test. I reccomend that someone do the work soon, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Compressor runs only a few seconds then clicks off


The compressor is going bad, check your owners manual for warranty information or look here http://b2b.frigidaire.com/support/manuals.asp if you cant find the manual. Some units have up to 7 years on the sealed system (the compressor, cooling coils, and hot coils).

when the compressor cycles fast that usually means that its low on freon.use approved gauges to get good pressure readings.

I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
