Cycling on and off is a normal process for your AC compressor. However, if the frequency suddenly changes or the cycles seem unusual, such as shutting down briefly before running for long periods, your unit might need professional repairs. Different issues can affect the duration and patter of your compressor’s cycling, including icy coils, leaking refrigerant, an obstructed or faulty thermostat or an oversized system.

To avoid the risk of extensive damage to your compressor, bring in an expert to diagnose and resolve the problem. Solutions for AC compressor problems range from relocating or replacing the thermostat to cleaning a dirty air filter to replacing an oversized unit.
