    More about AC start up problem

    What are the reasons behind “AC start-up problem”?

    There’s nothing more frustrating than when your air conditioner won’t start. There are many reasons behind “AC start-up problem”

    Common reasons behind “AC start-up problem “are:

    • Defective MCB: If your AC does not start it is always recommended to check the MCB (miniature circuit breaker). Problem with MCB can be a leading cause of air conditioner breakdown.
    • Defective power outlet: If the AC does not start check the power outlet where it is plugged in. Plug in other device like a lamp or a tape recorder to check if they work. If the AC power outlet is faulty then the AC will not start.
    • Faulty motor: A defective motor is a leading reason behind AC start-up problem. In many cases, the AC unit will shut down immediately or won’t start at all if the motor is defective.
    • Faulty compressor: A compressor is the heart of an air conditioning unit which is responsible for cooling the room. If the AC does not start, the compressor might be defective. The compressor is a motor which compresses the refrigerant or coolant and circulates the refrigerant through the evaporator and condenser coils. Problems with your compressor may cause the AC unit to shut down. Keeping compressor clean and lubricated can help to prevent AC start-up problem.
    • Coolant shortage: If an air conditioner doesn’t have enough coolant, it may not turn on or may not operate correctly. The coolant circulates through the evaporator coils and cools the air flowing over it and eventually sends cool air into the room. So when the level of this coolant becomes insufficient, the AC may face problem while starting.
    • Faulty start capacitor: When the AC is switched on it makes an audible click at the time of start. At this time the thermostat sends a signal to the start capacitor to trigger the compressor and start the cooling cycle of air conditioner. But when the capacitor goes bad, it fails to trigger cooling cycle and in some case the AC does not start.
    • Faulty thermostat: A bad thermostat is a leading cause of AC start-up problem. A defective thermostat cannot transmit start signal to start capacitor and the AC does not turn on.

    These are some common reasons behind AC start-up problem but there can be other reasons as well.

    The PRO visits clients site and troubleshoots the AC start-up problem. The PRO first looks for basic reasons like MCB, electrical wiring and current in the power outlet.  If the MCB and power outlets are found fine PRO checks the key components of the AC like compressor, condenser, coolant, thermistor, start capacitor, sensor and others. After the actual problem is identified, PRO describes the problem to the customer and suggests a possible repair or replacement. On customer consent, the PRO repairs the AC.
