Is this an outdoor unit or indoor? the most common cause is a stuck compressor contactor - located in the outdoor unit. The contacts tend to get pitted-up. Eventually they can weld shut. This can cause serious damage to the system. It is good practice to replace the contactor every few years or when pitted, just like spark plugs in a car.
Another cause would be a shorted thermostat cable. This can be caused by a weed-eater hitting the wire outside, or a wire-staple digging into the wire too tightly, rodents chewing on it, or just bad wire.
The thermostat itself could be bad, sending a signal to the outdoor unit when it isn't supposed to.

SOURCE: RVP 8000 A/C just experienced slight power surge. Compressor on.

I'm leaning toward sticky relay as well, but if you want to confirm it's not thermostat, remove thermostat from wall, and temporarily disconnect the yellow wire from thermostat (compressor) when/if, it happens again. If compressor stays running, I'd say relay for sure.
Just for future reference , Gray wire from thermostat is low fan, green wire is high fan, yellow is compressor, blue is ground. ( For cooling side) The red is 12 v + to furnace and white is negative to furnace.(heat side)

Testimonial: "Many thanks. After cool night with breaker off the compressor unit worked fine the next morning, then stuck again on in the p.m. Next day same thing. Three days later all is now working well. Must have been a welded contact that somehow cleared itself. Thanx again!"

Scott,
I feel it is a faulty thermostat switch that is causing the problem. If you replace it, your problem may get solved. The fan switch has nothing to do with the compressor. It is the thermostat that has all to do with it. Fan is only to blow the air fast or slow. The thermostat switch controls the working of the compressor.

Will a th5000 work with a ruud dual fuel


Are you talking about a pro 5000 Thermostat??? if so then NO it will not work.With this stat you do not have a temperature lock on the heat pump. Say you don't want the heat pump to run below 25 degrees. it won't shut the heat pump. And you don't want the heat pump to run at the same time as the furnace. With the Pro 8000 3 heat and 2 cool thermostat you can lock out the heat pump at 25 degrees outside an turn the furnace on. You will have to install an outdoor thermostat hooked up to the pro 8000 it usually comes with the stat. Honeywell products.

Heat pump compressor wont come on in heat mode, works fine in cool mode, we get heat occaisionally for about 2 min, then the compressor shuts off. it is a fridgedaire window unit.


Try setting the thermostat at a normal heat setting. By raising the temperature too high the unit thinks that the heat pump won't be effective and go into strip heat mode.

I have a single room 8000 btu kennmore air conditoner was making loud squealing noise when compressor kicks on and now it makes no noise and does not cool at all please help


sounds like the compressor may have died on you. the compressor isnt running you might as well trash it sorry for the bad news but it probably isnt worth trying to replace a compressor in a system like that it would drive you crazy and take forever if it could even be done.
