Either there is something wrong with the unit or you have something else plugged into the same circuit. Air Conditioning units draw a lot of power and will trip a breaker if there is a moderate load on the same circuit. Try plugging it in to an outlet that you know doesn't have anything else on it. The other thing you can do is see what else turns off when the breaker trips, that will tell you what else is on the circuit.

Ac unit keeps tripping the reset button


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# LRA074AT7, which keeps tripping the reset button. I see that it will start up and then trips the reset button after a minute or two. First, be sure the electrical service is adequate for the model you have chosen. This information can be found on the serial plate, which is located on the side of the cabinet and behind the grille. Secondly, be sure the air conditioner is properly grounded. To minimize shock and fire hazards, proper grounding is important. The power cord is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug for protection against shock hazards. Lastly, your air conditioner must be used in a properly grounded wall receptacle. If the wall receptacle you intend to use is not adequately grounded or protected by a time delay fuse or circuit breaker, have a qualified electrician install the proper receptacle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

I HAVE A FEDDERS AIR CONDITIONER MODEL AED24E7F-C THIS UNIT TRIPS THE RESET BUTTON ONCE IN A GREAT WHILE IT RUNS FOR HOURS OR DAYS ON END AND THEN TRIPS. IT TAKE AWHILE AFTER THAT BEFORE I CAN RESET...


The reset button is part of the cord. The cord has built in arc detection. This is a complex circuit that monitors the unit and senses potentially dangerous sparks or arcing inside the internal components of the A/C (motors, switches, etc.) It sounds like the problem is getting worse - as they usually do. Sparking and arcing happen when dirt, corrosion, etc. accumulates and can result in pitted contacts. All of these conditions only make the sparks and arcs worse. Page 1 of the manual (left column) says this:

If the Arc Detection Device has tripped, the
reset button will pop up.


Follow these steps to reset the Arc Detection
Device:


1. Unplug unit from electrical outlet
2. Press the reset button
3. Plug the unit back into electrical outlet
4. Check to see if power has returned to the unit

Testing


You should test the Arc Detection Device
equipped power cord monthly, after every major
electrical storm, or if power to your Room Air
Conditioner has been interrupted.

Follow these steps to test the Arc Detection
Device:


1. Unplug unit from electrical outlet
2. Press the reset button
3. Plug the unit back into electrical outlet
4. Press test button. Unit should trip and reset
button will pop up.
5. Press reset button again for use
If above test fails, stop using the air
conditioner and contact customer service by
calling the following toll-free number:
1-800-332-6658 or email:
customerservice@fedders.com

I hope this helps & good luck!

My a/c unit keeps tripping when i plug it in. i've tried to hit the reset button on the plug but doesnt do anything. i unplug and plug back into outlet and it trips again. what can i do to fix it?


Hi,
There is nothing you can do to fix it... the compressor is trying to start and cannot so it trips the plug. The plug trips to protect the house circuit from being overloaded and causing a fire.
Getting the compressor replaced is cost prohibitive, it is cheaper to buy a new unit.

Spray washed outside of the unit with a garden hose - now when I plug unit in, the reset button at the plug immediately trips - I let fully dry overnight but reset still trips upon plugging the unit into...


Obviously, one of the electrical components is still wet or got damaged by the garden hose washing. Until you remove the unit from the window or wall and dismantle the cabinet, there's no way to know what damage has been done.

I'm sorry, I wish I had a quick fix solution for you. But, there just isn't one, short of replacing the entire unit.

Admrial air conditioner keeps tripping it's plug


Hi, you either have a short in a componant or it may be that the outdoor coil is dirty and will need to be washed out with your garden hose. If it trips but you are able to reset it and it will run for awhile, its a good sign the condenser coil may be plugged causing high head pressure. If it trips and you try and reset it but can't, you have a dead short in a control part, motor, compressor, or what. Try washing this coil but be careful not to bend the aluminum fins as this will make it worse. Please let me know if this solves the problem or not, and if not we can go into it deeper.
Sincerely,

Trips when plugged in


AC pulling to much power from outlet. Thus tripping the switch.
try to remove all that is plugged into this outlet and have only the AC plug into the outlet.

If you live in an apartment, there might be a dedicated plug for AC. Ask the super.

The instruction manual says:
If the safety device incorporated in the plug trips and cuts off the power supply, check that the power cable and plug are not damaged. If the power cable is undamaged, to restore operation press the RESET button.   To verify the correct operation of the plug, press the TEST button periodically and make sure the appliance disconnects.  If this is not the case, contact the service center. To restore operation, press the RESET button.
