Question about Frigidaire Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Cooling has stopped

The compressor kicks in but the unit is not cooling. I cleaned the filter, and vacumed the unit. After removing the unit from the wall sleeve I noticed water in the catch basin. I removed the water, and cleaned the coils. The fan speed changes when going from low to high. Could the unit have a leak after three years of running ok? What can I do to determine the cause and possible re-charge the unit?

Apparently the freon has escaped or the metering device for the freon is plugged up. Either way, it's expensive. Check your warranty for "sealed system" repairs.

What causes compressor to work fine then shut down and not come back on for an extended amount of time?


Sometimes these AC's need to be removed and given a damm good cleaning with a spray hose, and any filters replaced. Clean the internal fan(s).
This can sometimes fix overharting of the compressor or misleading air temp sensing..

Sounds like the compressor is inoperative. Most, if not all new units have no means of recharging the freon if it leaks out. If the coils are not cooling, the compressor is not operating and the unit will not dehumidify.

Want to check for leaks and recharge a dometic rv roof unit 2007 compressior kicks in and out and not cold


They are a sealed unit, and you would have to get a Refrigeration tech to install valves to do so, which usually costs close to replacing upper unit (roof unit).
A few things come to mind in your case.
- Are you getting proper 120 AC Voltage?
- Has unit been cleaned recently, as in filter, evaporator, condenser ? Any of these plugged can cause it to shut down.
- is it freezing up due to improper flow from discharge ducts, as in have you closed too many ? Remove filter at ceiling and have a look at coils/fins, at front for frost forming on them when it shuts down.
- How long does it run before compressor kicks out, and how long before it comes back on?
- Does it feel cool when compressor kicks in?

Get back to me with more info if you can, so we can narrow it down better.

you may need to install a hardstart kit if you can get to the compressor.
go to your nearest appliance parts store to get the part and the instructions are usually on it. If not ask the parts man.

Unit does not cool. Original unit was replaced because of defective compressor. Replacement unit worked in store but now does not cool and alternates blowing cool and warm air.


Is this a window unit? Sounds like the compressor may be cutting on and off. That would cause the alternating air temp you are feeling. Make sure the condenser fan is running. If it isn't running head pressure will build up on the compressor until it shuts down. Then the pressure will equalize and the compressor will kick on again. Also check your filters and the condenser coil to make sure it is clean. Let me know what you find.

Room a/c works great for hours and then compressor just stops


the unit may be knocking off on defrost if the coil is getting v cold,

check for full airflow over the indoor unit/evaporator coil, check filters fan operation and coil condition. Likewise it may be overheating so check the same on the outdoor unit/condenser clean coil and fan operation.

Unlikely but the unit may be under performing and slightly short on refrigerant, not providing enough suction cooling to the compressor motor so the internal over temp klixon would cut it off for short periods, to cool the motor.

My freezer is not freezig and the refrig is not getting cold. There is a notice coming from what I assume to be the compressor in the back of the refrig at the bottom.


Check Relay and overload on compressor terminal. sometimes due to faulty relay overload tripping which makes tik tik sound. before replacing relay need to start compressor directly.
