Make sure you are getting voltage to the compressor with a voltmeter. If you are the starting relay may be at fault.

Air conditioning stopped working suddenly would not respond when switched on


Could be a number of possible issues. A sudden loss of freon, a faulty pressure switch or relay, and so on.
Someone would need to find out if the compressor has power and then proceed from there.

AC compressor won't turn on by itself.


I would check the low pressure switch next. The switch cuts power to the compressor if the pressure is too low. The switch can fail.
Same goes for the high pressure safety switch.
As for leaving the relay bypassed, you would need to use a test light or meter to see if you are using battery power with the key off. I would not recommend it.

If my compressor wheel isn't spinning how do I know if it is the compressor or the ac clutch? System is charged but ac is blowing hot air


The question is: why isn't the compressor clutch turning

The compressor isn't likely seized,it may leak refrigerant,
but won't be what your asking.

The clutch can be jumped to test that

If okey, then you have to diagnose the entire
A/C Electrical System

How do you know it is properly charged,you put
refrigerant gauges on the system?

Why wont my philco washing machine drain or spin


Many washing machines won't spin or drain if the lid isn't closed. It could be that the switch detecting the lid close position isn't working or the tang that presses the switch isn't depressing the switch enough. Check to see if the lid is closing all the way, if so, then locate lid close switch and pressing on the switch with a Q-tip. If other functions stop when the lid is opened and work when the lid is closed then you have another problem. The problem could be in the wash cycle switch, try spin and rinse all the different settings.

I have electrical problem with AC compressor Blazer 2002. Don't run.


If the compressor clutch isn't locking and turning the compressor the first thing to check is the refrigerant level. If the system is low on refrigerant a safety switch opens the clutch circuit and prevents the compressor from running. The reason for this is that the lubricant for the compressor travels through the system with the refrigerant, so if the system is low the compressor can be destroyed from lack of lubrication.

My air compressor just stopped working completely,has power to it and can turn the fan so its not seized but was gonna start by checking the reset relay and what appears to be a capaciter. just looking for...


The first thing to check is the thermal protector (circuit breaker). It is a small black button mounted on the housing on the back side of the pump motor. The unit will have to cool down before the button will reset. Usuall causes for the thermal protector to pop are: running the compressor on an extension cord, running the compressor on power lines or circuits that can't carry enough amps to run the motor, or little or no oil in the compressor causing excessive friction and heat buildup. If the thermal protector isn't tripped the next thing to check is the pressure switch. If the springs inside are broke or damaged they won't trip the switch to turn the compressor on. If the capacitor(s) are bad the motor will hum and/or try to turn but not have the power to start spinning.
