Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Fedders Model No. A7U12W2A-A, 12000btu airconditioner. The unit has been cooling satisfactorily for two to three years. Today the unit was cooling and suddenly there were a couple of reasonably loud knocks and the compressor stopped cooling. The fan continues to run. In about five minutes the cooling comes back on. The compressor runs for abut four minutes and shuts down. Earlier today we had a power dip without losing all power.

Answers :

Hi, the power dip when translated means low current actually affected the relay starter which is situated beside the compressor. Now the relay starter works and stop intermittently which is why the Compressor cools whenever it works and does not cool whenever it does not work.
You need to change the relay starter immediately.

Take care

I have a Nationwede YL-2300 portable air conditioner. The compressor runs, the fans run, but it is not cooling. After a few minutes the compressor cuts out and then restarts again after another minute or two, which is what it should do, but it still doesn't blow cool air. There is no hot air coming from the compressor unit. Any ideas about what is wrong with it?

Breaker breaks When my Dometic roof a/c compressor comes on during a regular cycle, it sometimes pops the breaker. I replaced the breaker but think there must be some sort of timer in the unit that allows some time to go by before the compressor comes back on.

The compressor in my central air unit does not kick on. Sometimes it will sometimes it won't. I really notice when it doesn't because of the scorching heat from outside.
