Las Vegas Central Air – Silverstate Las Vegas Air Conditioning Repair 702-410-6524
The central air conditioning compressor can fail a couple of different ways. Our technicians have seen where they fail open, fail shorted, experience a bearing failure, or a piston failure (throw a rod), or experience a valve failure. Call our team to check your heating and cooling system if you suspect the compressor is starting to fail.
When a compressor fails open, a wire inside the compressor breaks. This can not be repaired and the symptom is that the compressor does not run, though it may hum. If the compressor fails open, and following the steps here does not fix it, then it is best to install a new compressor. This failure causes no further failures and won’t damage the rest of the system; if the rest of the system is not decrepit then it would be cost effective to just put a new compressor in.
