Question about GE Zoneline AZ38H12DAD Split System Air Conditioner

1 Answer

My AC My Compressor keeps kicking off. I turn the unit on, the fan works. The Heat works but the compressor turns in about 60 sec. If I unplug the unit and turn it back on, it comes on but the compressor shuts off again after 60 sec. Can this be from dirt in the coils? They have some build up. Any other causes?

One might think so, YES the compressor is running till it gets hot and tripps on hi-temperature, and after it cools down awhile, the switch willcautomatically reset itself and back- & forth......Thank-you-very much!

Model 160 c when AC goes on after about 5 minutes causes the circut breaker to go. The fan does not do that when it is turned on, only the AC. THANKS JEFF


Hi Jeff,
The compressor is either locked up or shorted....
The five minute delay is built in to keep the compressor from starting under load..
Then when it kicks on the high amp draw will kick the breaker...

In most cases the cost for parts and labor to replace a small compressor are more then the unit is worth...
The best thing to do is to replace the whole unit.

AC unit not kicking on...


You need a "Y" terminal. "Y" is pretty standard on every heat pump. It is the wire that will energize the compressor contactor at the outdoor unit, allowing the compressor and condensor fan to run.

The fan will kick on automatically everytime the ac compressor comes on to cool down the refrigerant going through the condensor. Make sure you dont have a/c selected or have it on defroster if you dont want the compressor to run.

Compressor on my RV coleman ac unit bogging down


Take a look at your start capacitor. This the capacitor that kicks the compressor over when it tries to start. If the capacitor is bad, it cannot kick the compressor back over after the first cycle because the head pressure has not evened out yet. It is located in the upper unit on the side panel in a small box. Be careful, highly charged capacitors can zap you if you are not careful. Disconnect power and touch across the terminals with a meter or a screwdriver to discharge the capacitor.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

Problem with my AC unit


Hi Phillip,

Check your thermostat wires to see if you have any of them which are bare and touching. If any are touching separate them and tape em up and try unit again. You have a direst short in your cooling portion of the unit.
