Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

I have a fedders portable a/c unit and it works for five minutes and it then shuts down. The circuit braker does not trip and I plugged the unit on different locations with the same results. The unit has very cold air, but it trips after five minutes of use.


Answers :

Thanks for your information that " The unit has very cold air".It's cut off by indoor coil sensor.

Reason for shut off in 5 minutes.(There are one or more reasons for the problem) Check as follows.
1. Evaporator coil,air filter and bower wheel full of dusty. Service your unit completely.
2. Check rpm of blower motor. If less rpm replace capacitor.
3.If all above is o.k and still problem means defective coil sensor. Replace it.

Hope, it's helpful?

Hi,Here is a tip about Mitsubishi Air Conditioners and how to get the manuals for all of the Mitsubishi line. The manual include both troubleshooting and installation. ... Mitsubishi Air Conditioners

A/C runs cold when first turned on. Will run fine for about 1 hour, then the compressor starts to cycle on and off. Will run cold for approximately 2 minutes then compressor kicks off for about 4 or 5 minutes. Compressor then kicks back on for another 2 minutes and then kicks off. This cycle will continue for as long as you leave the unit on.


It sounds like your unit is low on refrigerant. Have it checked and refilled if necessary. ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

I recently had a new outdoor unit installed on my central heat and air conditioning sytem. I have had the installer out 3 times and the system still does not operate correctly. Sometimes when it cycles (every other time or every third time) the unit does not blow cold air. Sometimes the unit comes on not blowing cold air and the compressor fan is running but not the compressor. Sometimes after 15 minutes of this the compressor will come on. What is the problem.


It sounds like the compressor needs starting components installed on it. All a/c units have a run capacitor for the compressor and another one for the condenser fan motor. These motors use these capacitors all the time when the motor is running. H ... Air Conditioners

My problem is when I turn on my air only kick in for a minute of cold air then it shuts down then warm air comes out for five minutes maybe less. my setting are at max cool thermostat at 7. at these setting my room should be ICE cold.


If it is in the middle of winter that you are doing this it has still got a very slim chance of doing what you want... it is a thermostat afterall which is preset by the manufacturer, take the settings off automatic and turn onto cool only.... atleas ... Air Conditioners

UNIT RUNS FOR APPROXIMATELY 12 / 15 minutes BLOWING COLD AIR, THEN SOUNDS AS THOUGH A RELAY TRIPS IN AND IT BEGINS BLOWING COLOD ? IF LEFT FOR AN HOUR OR SO, IT WILL START TO BLOW THE COLD AIR AGAIN, BUT THE SAME THING OCCOURS AFTER THE TEN TO FIVETEEN MINUTES AGAIN ? ANY IDEAS ? I THOUGHT IT MAY BE SHORT OF GAS ? HOWEVER WHEN I'VE OPENED UP THE CASING, THERRE DOES'NT APPEAR TO BE A POINT ON IT FOR TO HAVE IT RE- GASSED ?


It sounds like you may have a bad capacitor or a poor connection on some wire at the compressor terminals. I assume the fan is running outside with the compressor and that the condenser is clean. *Note if it needs "regassed" (recharged) it means ther ... 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.


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 ... Fedders Air Conditioners

My Dometic rooftop rv ac runs for approximately 5 minutes. During this time the fan blows cold air. However, after 5 or so minutes, the unit stops completely except for a humming sound.

A/C does not blow cold air. It has frosting built on the pipe that connects to the a/c unit outside. There is some water built up where the filter sits. I turnd off the a/c for a full day, the frost melted, filter is very clean, and nothing on the inside seems abnormal. I started the a/c again after 1-day but the frost started to built up again and no cold air was blowing. (it blew cold for a few minutes only). I don't know what the problem can be. Please let me know if you have any ideas to mak


Shelly,\015\012Most likely you are low on freon. Your air conditioner uses a coil that gets cold when the freon passes through it to produce your cooling. The temperature of the freon inside the coil is directly controlled by the pressure of ... Air Conditioners

I have dometic AC 630515.331. I was having a problem with it cooling properly. A service guy checked it out and said the cold control wasnt working properly. Im trying to replace it but I dont see a cold control on either unit. Does this model have a cold control thats not located on the radiator coils?

Turned on AC was running fine. 30 minutes later began to hear a strange noise. Opened AC/Furnance closet & heard a sound best described as air letting out of a tire. It seemed to be coming from copper pipe. Minute later sound stopped & air was suddenly hot. As if AC was turned on fan not cold. Went outside & neither fan nor motor was running. Turned fan manually. Ran for about a minute then stopped. Outside unit was making what could best be described as a buzzing sound.


Hi!!\015\012\015\012This means that the condenser fan motor (outside unit) failed, this caused to build hi pressure and either activated a safety valve to release the extra pressure or blew a line and R22 Refrigerant escaped from system. ... Goodman CKL42AR42 Air Conditioner

Hi, I have a 1.5 carrier mini split heat pump. I cant find the model number but believe it was made 2000-2003. This has the remote with the infra red eye mounted in the front of the main unit (like a tv). (There is no other controller as I have seen with other units). The unit is heating and cooling fine, however, it does not seem to be sensing the thermostat. Whether it be in heat or cold, it will turn on and run for about 10 minutes and then shut off and not come again. To get it to run again,

My outside unit runs, as does the inside; however, the air blowing from the registars is not cold. I replaced a component on the ouside unit a few years ago that solved the problem. it was located on the exterior of the unit, but I had to remove a cover to get to it. It had several wires attached to it. Could this be my problem?

The outside unit keeps tripping the breaker. It will run for a few seconds, loud rumble, then stops, and does this for about five minutes before tripping the breaker. I just bought the house. The unit is about 8 yrs old. I pulled off the cover and the inside near the compressor is full of dirt. We had a bad storm with lighting the night the unit started acting up. Should I replace the capacitor or is my compressor bad?


There is a process to go thru for checking the unit to see which part is causing the problem. first thing, listen to the compressor when it first tries to start. if the compressor does nothing and the breaker trips then you will have to check the com ... Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner

I have the AS12AA(B)MCF unit with US12AA(B)MCF. After I turn it on in the standard mode it will shut off after 1 to 5 minutes and the nature mode light blinks. Does not turn back on by itself. Try and try again with same results. Then sometimes it will turn on and work fine, like this morning , at least for the 1.5 hours I was around to observe.

Purchased a fedders a/c 18000 unit still under warranty. called the 800# they said company had filed bankruptcy and were not responsible for repairs. 350$ mistake. Fan runs too slow for unit to kick in. Fan will pick up speed some times when you turn it on, will start to blow cold air but only runs for a couple of minutes before fan stops turning.


Check the capacitor for the fan motor. You can do that with a multimeter with the capacitor test function or if the capacitor looks swollen then it is probably bad. Also, make sure the fan rotates freely by hand. Let me know if you need more help. ... Fedders 12,000/10,200 BTU Heat/Cool Room Air Conditioner - White
