SOURCE: 1995 z-28. air conditioner compressor won't kick

Your A/C pressure switch may have gone bad or the wire harness to it may have gone bad. The switch is along the low pressure line or on the A/C Accumulator ( looks like a silver canister) , Unplug the wire and you can jump it there and see if the clutch comes on, if it does try spreading the two tabs apart on the switch and clipping the wire back on. If it does not come back on you need to replace the switch, you can do it with out loosing to much R134A. Just got to be quick when you  remove the old one and placing the new one. The low side should have a reading of 30PSI to 50PSI and the high side should have 150PSI to 200PSI. Any other reading will give you poor A/C performance. Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: My a/c is not blowing cold air.

The compressor probably isn't kicking on beacuse it is low on freon. It won't take freon when you try because the compressor needs to be running to draw it in. Sounds like a catch 22 doesn't it? There is a low pressure switch either in the filter/drier, or on the low pressure line. If you unplug the switch and hook a jumper between the two pins, the compressor should kick on, allowing you to add freon. Hope this helps...

SOURCE: Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan won't kick on

be aware that not repairing this asap that you are causing yourself more problems First I would change out the fan capacitor and see if this could be the problem. Secondly if the capacitor isn,t the problem change out the motor . By continuing to allow the system to cycle like this the compressor will take a dive on you costing more . Good Luck

Testimonial: "Yes, it's dual run capacitor problem. I used a stick to spin the fan blades and it starts to slowly spin and up to normal speed, so motor is good."

A/C Compressor wont kick on unless jumped in fuse box using a paper clip. Compressor does not kick on with relay in place. Freon levels are between 35-40psi on low and 190-200psi on high side.


Normal pressure with the engine-compressor off is outside air temp. So both gauges would read 70 or 80 or whatever.
When the system is running, normal is 30-50 low and 200-300 high.
One thing that comes to mind to test is the low pressure switch.

I have a Haier wine cooler BC112C. The compressor will not kick in (but I can hear the relay switch engaging) unless I plug and unplug the unit 4 or 5 times, then the compressor cools to the proper...


Hi!
That is probably the compressor relay
The relay is on the compressor and needs replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay

Thank you for using fixya

Compressor engages for 3 seconds then shuts off then later does it again. Is there a safety system or relay switch associated with the compressor engaging?


Hi,
The compressor is trying to start but cannot so the overload kicks it off...
The start relay and capacitor maybe bad if it has those parts... even so the compressor may also be bad...

A/c not blowing cold air


If the compressor deosn't kick in, you ar not going to fell the cold. There are other things to prevent the compressor not kicking in. First if you suspect a leak, have it charged up with dye added, so the leak can be located for further analysis. Good luck.

Everything works fine, except when the compressor kicks in the panel breaker trips.


Most likely a short in the compressor electrical components (relay, overload,capacitor) Supco makes a 3 in 1 that you could use. If this works fine, if not "bad compressor".
