It is possible that the circuit breaker for the compressor unit is thrown (switched to "off"). Go outside to the compressor unit and follow the big cable up to the circuit breaker panel on the wall. If it is off, throw the switch to "on." If that is not the problem, something is probably wrong with the compressor unit. Turn off the breaker panel and call a repairman.

What s wrong with air conditioner blowing from the top of a persons head?

On a hot day it wouldn't be so bad; however, you may want to move away from the air conditioner if it bothering you, rearrange the furniture , or if it is a registrar adjust the veins so they are blowing up-words.

If a compressor for a impala goes on and off is the compressor bad?

All automotive air conditioner compressors work by going on and off. That is how they control the temperature. If they are mostly off, they make it warmer. If they are mostly on, they make it colder. The fact that it is on an Impala has nothing to do with it. The fact that it is an automobile air conditioner compressor has everything to do with it. Something would be wrong if it was not going on and off.

the ac stoped working and so did the heat . I changed the thermostat added freant

Why do u need to replace the ac compressor?

Generally, because something is wrong with it. Maybe a bearing went out, maybe the compressor is just worn, maybe it was damaged because of a refrigerant overcharge, compressor oil overcharge, or the wrong type of compressor oil used. Could be a number of reasons.

If the AC compressor stopped working on a 1999 Cherokee but never made noise and just quit running as if it was getting no power what could be wrong?

Check the pressure switch to the AC. migh be loss or refrigerant in system. Safety pressure switch will shut compressor down when pressure is below specs, it saves your compressor. Have a/c checked...........Mike

Most commonly, the compressor is not working, the evaporator is blocked by dirt, the condenser motor isn't woring. A trained technician needs to evaluate

What is wrong if there is ice forming on the outside unit of your house air conditioner?

I see this happen a lot. The thermostat is turned down way to low (60 degrees or lower) causing ice to build up on the air conditioners condenser coils. Which causes the air not to get through the coils. The icing of the condenser creates a blockage and the air conditioner doesn't cool the house or room. Making you think it is not working. If not corrected the compressor will overheat. (Not Good). Turn the air conditioner off until the ice has melted (probably 24 hours). Then turn the air conditioner back on with the thermostat set to 68 to 70 degrees and it should go away. If not call a technician.
