May I ask how you know that the freon level is good. If while it is running, there is not ice cold air coming from it, this would definitely indicate a problem with low pressure freon which would most likely indicate a leak. Only trained professionals are able to check it so unless this has been done, please don't assume that there is plenty of freon if you are doing such a thing. please let me know how you checked it and if it really is fine, then a sensor is bad.

my best to you

Most new modern A/C units have a built in safety device to disable the compressor if the freon is too low.


hope this may help;

A short cycling compressor signals an inadequate freon level in the system.

The freon level should be checked by a HVAC professional.

You also may have a leak in your freon system, as freon does not get consumed during the cooling cycle.

Good Luck

Please respond with comments/more info.

    Please also check to see if your washable filter is dirty. If it is obstructing the flow of air, it could cause inefficiencies that might cause the compressor to behave as you have mentioned.





    Kind regards

Can i run my unit on low coolant? the uninsulated line to the coil is cold it should be warm but the house seems to be cool. I no I am low on coolant and it will be fixed on Tuesday. It has a leak in the...


Yes you can BUT while doing so this is the things that take place:
1. The compressor requires low temp gas to help it cool down. If it doesnt then the compressor starves for refrigerant and over heats. This additional heat breaks down the oil in the system and one of the bye products is acid. This acid eats away at the windings and when its all the way thru you have a short to ground. New compressor time.
2. The compressor also reguires oil to help keep it cool. Low on refrigerant will not bring back enought oil and you could have a mechancial failure. This is also new compressor time.
3. With the system low also will make it run all the time causing the light bill to double.

with all this said, if you have enought money to install new compressor and labor and material and dont mind giving a lot to the electric company, LET IT RUN.
if you dont have lots of money, shut it off before it costs you a lot of money. Hope this helps. Wally

I have a blizard split model 10.5 years old in a caravan. model sa101 the air feels cooler but seems to have no noticable difference in actual temperture and compressor seems to run continuously ...


Please understand first, air conditioning system not only cooling the area but also removing the heat. If heat in the room stays constantly, even 24 hrs running a/c couldn't cool the room.
Now, why the a/c could not cool the room or remove the heat from the room.
Check air filter, evaporator coil and blower wheel for clean. If not service the unit immediately. And also check indoor fan motor rpm. If rpm is low, replace fan capacitor. Check for gas pressure to confirm no leak or running with short of gas. It's advisable to service both indoor and out door once in 6 months at least. Otherwise, your electric bill will kill you lot. Thanks.

Compressor appears to kick in, runs for short time


It sounds like your unit may have a bad run capacitor or start capacitor and relay. Low voltage will also cause this problem. First you need to make sure that you have the full rated voltages at the unit, if you do, then, have the run and start capacitors checked out and the start relay.

Our air conditioner does not seem to be blowing any cool air...it basically just seems to be acting like a regular fan


The compressor is probably not runnng. The Main reasons that this will happen
1 - A bad run capacitor (silver or metal capacitor)
It’s either shorted, grounded or open.
If it’s shorted a lot of times it will bulge out, (sometimes slightly)
2 - A bad start kit ( plastic capacitor and Relay connected to it )
The capacitor is either shorted or open
The relay either has an open coil between terminals #1 and #5
Or the relay is stuck.
Any time you change the capacitor or relay you should change
the other, especially if they are over a year old.
3 - A loose, burnt or disconnected wire
4 - Wired wrong
5 Compressor is open (windings burnt open)
6 Low on charge not getting enough cooling back to compressor, (Feel top of compressor to see if it’s hot it shouldn‘t be)
7 Some compressors have a black plastic overload under the compressor cap which could be bad.

A/c is drawing 20 amps and keeps tripping breaker after running


If the fan is running and the compressor is getting hot and tripping off you may have a failed capacitor.

AC is off but compressor cycles periodically


most likely your compressor contact is stuck closed, and will need to be replaced. if the fan also runs when the compressor comes on you may have a short between the t-stat and unit. hope this helps.

Haier ESA 3185 AC won't cool; makes escalating loud vibrating noise near front panel/ filter


Have someone check the run capacitor of this unit. If the run capacitor is bad over shorted it can cause the unit to run and short cycle on a current overdraw. This makes for an electrical imbalance in the compressor motor. Next step is the compressor is faulty.
