Question about Heating & Cooling
Posted by Anonymous on
The compressor motor is over heating and thermal protection shuts it down , when it cools down it restarts. Restricted air flow over the cooling coils could be the cause. Check filter,Sometimes furniture or other things block the return air vent.

checkthe air filter, make sure it's not dirty.
check the front panel, make sure there's no "ice/frost" in the unit.

eventually,cycling process is doing done if the thermostat sense the configure temperayure set up it will trigger to stop your compressor motor as well as the blower fan,blower fan independenly to you compressor.if your thingking that your compressor is tripping off,check your operating current on one line using clamp ammeter and compare to the rated current that tag on
motor compressor body,if the current flow is higher than the rated current specified on compressor motor,well problem occured it will trip your compressor,because overload protector is becoming your thermostat.but if you got same current result it was cycling process.If tripping off maybe air is present in your system call qualified ac tech, to purge out air in system.

The fan motor is getting hot and going off on the internal overload in the motor.
This is caused by either a low voltage, a bad capacitor, or tight or dry bearings in the motor.
To check the bearings turn the power off to the unit, then spin the fan blade if it spins freely then the bearings are ok.
To check the capacitor you will need some kind of tester or you can buy a capacitor and replace it, that's what a lot of people do. They usually don't cost very much.
To check the voltage you will need a voltmeter and measure the volts at the unit.
