A/C unit shutting off when hot

With regard to my previous problem. My a/c man is coming tomorrow to install a hard start kit for this ongoing problem. Does this make sense?

    He has not come to install the hard start kit yet. A/c keeps shutting itself off. Coils have since been cleaned. Any ideas please.

Repair man has not been round to install the hard start kit.

Someone suggested replacing some wiring and checking running amps, but can't get the guy to come back around.

Really I need a Goodman rep to help out, but they will only talk to a licensed tech. My unit is a Goodman CKL 49-1

A hard start kit will not keep your unit running when it is hot or overheating. Did you get any different results with the hard start kit.

Why won't my compressor on my dometic not come on?

It really makes no difference what the AC unit is in, it's still AC. I've come across this situation many times, and found that unit is just low on Freon. Once, and only once, I hound a loose thermostat connection at the unit, so the compressor didn't know it was supposed to come on. Nonetheless, Check the connection AT the unit. If good, you'll have to get an AC man to recharge it because the charge line end is soldered shut. IF by chance there IS a fitting with a plastic cap on it, like on your tire fill, get a recharge kit with connecting line and recharge it with ONE canister of Freon. Get the kit from auto parts distributor, remove the plastic cap from the AC charge line, open the piercing valve on the kit line and connect to the can. DON"T pierce the top yet. Connect the other end to the AC charge line finger tight, now pierce the top of the canister with the T-handle/knob AFTER starting the AC to suck the Freon into the system and screw the piercing pin back out part way to release the Freon. NOTE: To get all the stuff out of the canister, stick the canister into a bucket of hot water you took up with you. Once the canister is empty, remove the kit line from the charge line, trash the empty, hide the kit line somewhere in case needed again(won't have to buy another kit, just Freon bottles), put the unit cover back on and stay cool.

Delfield mini freezer for restaurant is not freezing. Unit has power and cabinet fan runs but comp tries to kick on then you here a click and it immidietly shuts off before it can really ever start. Hi...

Compressor is locked up. You have an outside chance of getting it to come back if you install a hard start capacitor. When a locked compressor tries to start it gets hot really fast and kicks the power off to prevent wires from overheating. You can get a hard start kit from wwgrainger or refrigeration supply company. Many times they won't sell direct to the end user. The hard start kit gives it an extra boost when it tries to start. Most times this won't work. Usually the compressor has to be replaced because it is burned out internally. The hard start kit is less than $20.00, so its worth a shot.

Unit shuts off as soon as it is plugged in

Hard start Kits are attached to a compressor wiring to give an extra amount of electric current to the compressor motor. You will need someone more familiar with refrigerator wiring to do this. Hard Start Kits are available at refrigeration parts houses.

Intertherm S3QA042K compressor won't restart

You probably need a hard-start kit. A hard-start kit connects to the run capacitor and provides a starting boost for your compressor. If you install a hard-start kit, monitor your a/c for a while because it is possible that the bearings in the compressor are going bad.

I just had a bryant a/c installed (txv) should it have a hard start kit as well.

Anytime you have TXV they do need a hard start kit. The TXV shut down on the off cycle and does not allow unit to equalize. Rusty

Reverse Cycle not cooling!

I had a service man come out and he said the compressor was not coming on so he installed a hard start in parallel with capacitor solving the problem and is working normal now.
