The fan AND compressor come on?jayboyz said:there is still an occasional a/c …compressor always on… issue.
The capacitor will definitely have nothing to do with it. The sensor might be responsible provided the fan also runs at the same time.jayboyz said:The only other parts I see that would appear to control the compressor or temperature are the temperature sensor on the front of the unit and the capacitor that sends the charge to start the compressor. Could one of these be bad and causing that kind of problem?
It is in the electrical circuit but it doesn't make power nor does it switch power to the compressor. That is only done by the control. Once the control sends power, the capacitor helps the compressor and/or fan motor start and run.I thought the capacitor just sent the signal to turn it on.
If the control was in the OFF position at the time, the thermistor shouldn't cause it either. It is the control that actually switches power to those components.jayboyz said:So I ordered the thermistor. It is cheap and this seems to be the culprit.
