Air con stops cooling every after 10-15mins

Post by lyleham » Sat Jul 30, 2011 11:03 pm

We have problem for more than a week now. At first we have contacted different Aircon technicians to check our problem. Our aircon has been repaired several times and we have even changed the unit more than 6 times but the problem remains to be the same on all the aircons we had.

The main problem is, when you start the aircon normally, you can feel and hear the compressor working for the first 15 mins. There is cold air coming out. Then after 15 mins, it immediately comes back to fan mode and compressor never seems to work back automatically. This have happened to all the aircons we have replaced, old and new.

We have tried all the possibilities like maybe it's about the aircon's casing needs to get fixed properly, turning off all other aircons here at home, cleaning the filters, taking it out of the case and let it work on the floor, but the same problem comes out. Compressor stops at around 10-15 mins.

Any help or suggestion is highly appreciated. Thank you!

agree with the duke.

i'm a bit baffled. is this a central air conditioning system ? if it is, is it a split system with inside and outside equipment connected with freon lines or is it a packaged unit. it amazes me that you have repeated a corrective measure 5 times with the same results. please clarify.

It sounds like a window unit. You replaced it 5 times? That's insane. You need some help
