The air conditioning is out in the Secaucus station, and officials said it won’t be fixed until next week.

Commuters will continue to swelter in the massive Secaucus Junction train station through next week as NJ Transit replaces massive air-conditioning compressors that have picked a bad week to quit.

NJ Transit electricians were able to get some relief for commuters when they bypassed a malfunctioning air-conditioning compressor, which allowed two other units to work at full power, said Nancy Snyder, an agency spokeswoman.

“We have fans in the rotunda and concourse, and we are surveilling the areas and checking temperatures,” she said.

The big station started heating up Monday after two air-conditioning compressors had mechanical problems. Two new compressor units are scheduled to be delivered and a customer advisory said work will continue through next week. Officials did not have a completion date.

“We are trying to complete repairs as soon possible, Snyder said.

Due to the size of the industrial-sized air-conditioning units, a crane will be needed to lift the custom-made parts into place, officials said.
