AC Unit comes on for short time and clicks off and then back on and then off again.
Question: AC Unit comes on for short time and clicks off and then back on and then off again. It continues to do this until I shut it off. We are camped at a commercial campground and it is very hot. The AC unit has been running a lot. I thought maybe it was freezing up and ice was forming on condenser coils as it is also very humid. However, when I left it off for 3 or 4 hours and turned it back on it ran OK for a short period of time and then started the on again off again thing.
I STRONGLY suggest you have a tech look at your unit. I think you might have a burned, loose connection in your 110V supply that is arking and getting hot. It will run the fan, but when the compressor comes on it will shut everything off and mimic the symptoms you have explained. I suggest you have it checked ASAP to prevent the possibility of damage or fire. Please let me know what you find so I can post the results for our other readers.Good luck,
