Signs of AC Compressor Issues

  • Unusual noises from the air conditioner are always a sign of trouble. A ticking or clicking noise indicates that the compressor is struggling to turn on and off due to electrical issues. Similarly, rumbling, rattling, or clunking noise can occur due to loose motor mounts.
  • Reduced airflow is one of the early signs of compressor issues. The compressor is most likely facing an issue if the AC is running but limited or no air is coming out of the vents. Call a technician to address the issue.
  • A malfunctioning compressor can cause circuit breaker issues. If the outdoor AC unit often loses power and keeps tripping the circuit breaker, it could indicate that the compressor is drawing a lot of energy.
  • Moisture around the air conditioning system is another telltale sign of a compressor issue. Puddles around the unit can indicate a refrigerant leak. If the system continues to run with a leaking refrigerant, the compressor can break down eventually.
  • A vibrating AC unit can also indicate issues with the compressor. An AC unit shaking every time it turns on is called hard starting. It implies that the unit is having difficulty turning on, and the compressor may fail soon.

Understanding AC Compressor Problems

A dirty condenser or evaporator coil is one of the common problems that can happen with an AC compressor. Dirt and debris accumulation limits the system’s ability to transfer heat, causing the compressor to work harder and experience wear and tear. Low refrigerant levels due to leaks can cause the AC compressor to experience issues or fail. The compressor can also run into problems due to electrical issues. Electrical problems can lead to permanent compressor damage and also impact other system parts. 

Using the wrong refrigerant or too much refrigerant by an unqualified contractor can also damage the compressor. Higher refrigerant levels can increase the pressure within the system, leading to premature compressor failure. Inadequate lubrication causes the compressor to work harder, accelerating the wear and tear. Lack of lubrication causes the unit to function incorrectly, resulting in compressor issues.
