I’m trying to understand why my condenser runs constantly. How can I stop it? I don’t even know how long I should leave it on or what needs to be done when the compressor is on. This has been going on for months now and I don’t know how to fix it. How do I get the appliance to stop running continuously?
It sounds like a common issue but the reason your compressor runs constantly is actually very specific. The reason is that there is a short circuit in the power supply. This is usually caused by a bad component or a malfunctioning fuse. So what do you need to do to resolve this? If your fuse blows out, you’ll have to replace it and if the fault is with the fuse, you’ll need to check that you’re not using the wrong one. Either way, you’ll need to shut down your compressor, remove the negative ground cable from the condenser, and disconnect the positive ground cable from the compressor. If your problem is with the fuse, you should remove the fuse from the breaker panel next.
Once you’ve removed the fuse, you’ll have to make sure the fuse is still in good condition before re-installing it. If you have a blown fuse, you can try to blow it again by touching it to a high voltage source. You should also check your cable connections for insulation problems. The power supply you are using is the one that carries your condenser’s power to your compressor. You’ll also need to ensure that all the components within your condenser are working properly and the system has sufficient airflow.
