cellar cooling



my cellar cooler works perfectly until it cuts out. Then occasionally when it cuts in the condenser doesn’t fire up, both the cellar fans and the unit on the roof fans still turn .I resolve this by turning it off and on which normally starts it again. This is happening more frequently

any ideas


  1. The most common problem is the compressor is overheating. Does it attempt to start? Can you hear it “kicking”? If so it is usually that it is 3″ deep in fur coat and crap. If you feel confident, power it down and take the cover off and clean the crap out.
    If not, the next most common problem is the motor starter capacitor which is a cheap part but not something you’d normally change yourself.
    Of course there are a raft more possible problems, but the above are by far the most common.

Do you have a better answer? Leave a reply or an opinion
