Question about Heating & Cooling
Compressor on air conditioner runs for 5 seconds then cuts out,after a few minutes cuts back in, runs for 5 seconds and then turns off airconditioner.after minute or two cuts back in compressor runs 5 seconds cuts out and so on
-If both compressor and fan motor starts and stop, thermostat is the defect.
- If only the compressor check for your outlet no sign of discoloration, check the voltage if normal, check the defective overload protector of the compressor it its external, or compressor itself is defective

Your unit will be low on refrigerant gas. When the A/C unit starts, the suction side of the system pulls the pressure down below the safety cut out pressure and stops the compressor. after a few seconds of compressor not running and therefor not lowering the pressure on the suction side of the system, the pressure will rise again till the safety cutout resets, and it starts all over again. Repair leak, regas system and it should work fine.
