My A/C Compressor is Engaged Regardless of Setting on A/C Switch ... the switch on the right side of manual A/C control panel... I caan't just run fan to circulate air without the A/C compressor engaging !

The compressor should only run on AC and defrost. Mine cycles, maybe once to twice an hour, in all modes.
The purpose is to keep the compressor lubed in those down times. If yours never shuts down, in other modes except AC. There is a problem.

The only time the compressor does not engage is when you select Off, Panel, or Floor. If your compressor runs in the Off position either the clutch is stuck or your switch has issues. Does it at least cool? If so there would be no reason to break open the system and replace the compressor.
