The condenser kicks on and off for a reason. It will kick on and off because of something that the battery is not working correctly or the battery is getting old and tired. If your condenser goes bad, it can become quite difficult to replace. There are some things you can do to get the condenser back into working shape. First you must turn the power off. If you are lucky, you can use the jumper cables to do this but if not you will have to be handy and willing to listen to the battery dying a little bit before the power is turned back on.
The best thing that you can do to get the condenser kicking again is to clean it. There is nothing more annoying than a dirty condenser. Cleaning it will remove all the dirt, grease and hair that have built up over time. After cleaning the condenser make sure you put it away in a place that you can easily access it. Many people will forget about the condenser when they are doing other things so they will leave the condenser plugged in. This can cause the condenser to lose power and you will have a difficult time trying to get it to start again.
If your condenser is making noises that aren’t coming from your speakers, try unplugging them. Sometimes the battery won’t be able to charge because of the noise. You might also notice that your air conditioner is running a lot cooler. This is not always the case so check with your local service department to see if anything is wrong with your air conditioning unit. Sometimes the power is just not coming on. The battery will have to be replaced and this can be very costly. If you are not sure about the problem, try calling a technician to come and see if they can find the problem for you or at least give you an idea of what to look for.
