-If both compressor and fan motor starts and stop, thermostat is the defect.
- If only the compressor check for your outlet no sign of discoloration, check the voltage if normal, check the defective overload protector of the compressor it its external, or compressor itself is defective

Your unit will be low on refrigerant gas. When the A/C unit starts, the suction side of the system pulls the pressure down below the safety cut out pressure and stops the compressor. after a few seconds of compressor not running and therefor not lowering the pressure on the suction side of the system, the pressure will rise again till the safety cutout resets, and it starts all over again. Repair leak, regas system and it should work fine.

My heater and air conditioner shut on and off

The air conditioner is controlled by in cab air temperature so if the air temp is low then the ac compressor clutch will cycle as the thermostat switches it on or off. If you want it to work all the time you may have to run the heat as well so that the thermostat is fooled into thinking that the air temp is hot.. Have the system checked out by an auto electrician

You can set the temp for the unit to come on and it comes on and runs and cools for a few minutes then the compressor cuts off then the fan a little later. After a few minutes it comes back on and does...

Is the AC set on an energy saving mode. Together with this program if the thermostat is defective the same symtoms can appear. So please check on the thermostat and replace.
Since the compressor is cutting off the cooling does not take place to the extend that is set.

Generater wont stay on cuts on for about 5 minutes then cuts off

either its the contactor,ptc overload relay on the compressor,the motor start/run capacitor or possibly its a little low on R-134A refrigerant and the pressure switches are cutting off the compressor to protect it

Compressor will cut on run a few minutes and shut off hot air

The compressor is probably going out on overload. There may be a small refrigerant leak thus making the compressor run hotter than usual. If there is not enough refrigerant in the system, the compressor will not get the refrigerant back to it to keep it cool. This is a safety feature built into the compressor to keep it from overheating and locking up. You may want to take it to your local appliance store and have it looked at. Most of the time it usually is cheaper to buy a new unit than to pay for just the labor to have them fixed.

Compressor not kicking in when i turn the air conditioning on.

what is the make and model? how long has it been switched on? is the compressor top hot?

Sharp split system, cutting out

If this is running in A/C mode, then I bet you have a low refrigerant charge. The compressor is dropping out on low suction pressure if it's cutting in and out every 5-10 minutes or so. If it takes hours, then it's likely a different problem.

Reply back and I can help you (been in that business for over 30 years.).

Air conditioning

My guess would be from what you have described is that the refrigerant pressure might be low and is tripping the low pressure cut off that protects the compressor.
