SOURCE: AC compressor hums for a few secs then cycles off for few secs

Inspect all electrical wires and connections and correct any areas that appear damaged or overheated or loose (connections). There is a capacitor which is a round or oval component in series with the contactor and the compressor. Thoroughly mark all connections and remove the component. Take it to you local RV air conditioning repair shop and have them test it. If it is faulty, they will provide you with a replacement part. If it is not faulty and all wiring is okay, your compressor is locked up and will need to be serviced by a professional air conditioning technician.
Try the wires and the capacitor first.
I hope you find this information to be very helpful to you as a good, solid jumping off point moving forward.
:-)

Hello Rich,NO you have a dual capasitor that runs both fan & compressor motors.Shut it down and let it cool off.You need the uf rate numbers & the volt rating of the existing cap (printed on the side)to get EXACT replacement.The wires plug in to the top termanls C, HERM &FAN.Worth fixing good luck.

SOURCE: compressor fan motor runs backwards

Outside Air Conditioner Unit: Fan Spinning in Reverse


Recently I replaced the contact relay and the capacitor (dual capacitor) on my 2.5 ton Payne outside unit. I thought that I wired everything on to the new capacitor correctly by following the wiring on the old capacitor. However, when turning on the unit, the fan on the outside unit spun counterclockwise. The unit was Sucking In Air rather than blowing it out, which is bad for the unit.


Solution: Originally on my unit the Brown Fan wire went to the Fan position on the old capacitor. The other Light Colored Yellow Fan wire went to the Common position on the old capacitor. However, wiring it the same way on the new capacitor reversed the rotation of the fan, thereby causing the unit to **** In Air. By reversing the Fan Wires on the new capacitor, the fan spun clockwise and the air was blowing out of the unit. On the new capacitor the Light Colored Yellow Fan wire was this time connected to the Fan position of the new capacitor and the Brown Fan wire was connected to the Common position of the new capacitor.


Note: If your compressor has a delay in starting, you may want to consider adding a hard start capacitor. This has two Black wires that are wired to the Compressor position of the capacitor and the Common position of the capacitor. Wiring order does not matter.

Kitchenaid KSCS23IN Burning Hot Divider Wall then No Compressor, No Fan, No Cold Can Hear Clicking


The clicking is caused by the clixon turning off power to over heated motor that is not starting. Check the condition of the starter cap or relay and change. If a good cap or relay does not start your compressor then the rotor is frozen and you need a new compressor. (ouch)

My mistral reverse cycle mss25ss model does not work at all in heat mode. what would be broken?


firstly is the air comming from the outdoor unit cold or warm? if it is cold then the 3way valve is working and it has changed to heating. If it stays warm then it is still in cooling mode. The indoor fan wont come on until the coil temp gets warm enough, ( so it doesnt blow cold air on you straight up). If it is changing into heat mode then the larger of the pipes connected to the outdoor unit should get warm/ hot. If this is not happening then the unit is either out of gas or the compressor is on hollidays and wont come back to work.

AC draws more current in hot mode


If this is aheat pump or reverse cycle unit that amps in heating is to high. Should not go over nameplate amps in heat or cool. Sounds like maybe two things. Overcharge and stopped up coil on the inside air handler. The reason for the high amps is in heat the head pressure is higher than normal. So check the coil inside and have the charge checked because that compressor wont run long pulling that much amps over nameplate. Keep in touvh Rus.

Reversing valve not switching over to air on heat pump. compressor will come on for about 10 minutes, then shut off. Hot air comes out vent.


Look for any refrigerant leaks - no or low refrigerant can cause problems in both modes. The unit may be going off on low suction.

-OR-

The unit may be stuck in the heating mode.

Make sure the system is calling for the correct mode (cooling or heating) - some systems are auto, but if you can, select cooling since that is the requested mode. Check for power at the reversing valve inside the condensing unit. If power exists, then the reversing valve is stuck. It could also be the reversing valve solenoid coil, so make sure that isn't bad. There should be a strong magnetic field at the solenoid coil.

If you can hear the reversing valve clicking (moving), check the T-stat and make sure it will switch modes. Also check the reversing valve relay (those can be located in either the indoor unit or condensing unit).

Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C


you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.

Does not cool. Compressor Hot


Sounds like the compressor starting relay. This should be available from from most appliance parts retailers that carry refrigeration parts. It is probably a plug-in relay which is easy to replace. PULL THE PLUG UNTIL YOU GET IT! Constant cycling on the thermal protector will damage the unit.
