Question about Haier HWF05XC5 Air Conditioner

Will not start

Plugged in AC and it's won't turn on. There is power at the outlet....I've checked. The temperature is set at the coldest setting and room is warm so that's not the problem. I've tried the test button and reset button. Nothing works. My AC is actually AWF05XC5-T.

Re: will not start

One thing you can try is to hold down on the power button and plug the unit in. Hopefully you will hear a "beep". Then you need to unplug it for a minute and plug it back in. This is a known procedure to clear error codes from the control computer on units similar to yours, so it might possibly work. Something else you can do is download and look through the Users Manual for your model, which is at this URL: --> Hope that helps! ;)

Why cools the ac only 1 hour full power and never reaches the set-point temperature ?

check that all the doors and windows are closed as ac units do not work well when trying to cool the world
is the ac unit too small for the room size
I suspect that because it is working the problem is outside the ac control
is the inside fan working and blowing out cold air

I have a Frigidaire air conditioner. I've never had a problem with it,at all until a few minutes ago. It all of a sudden quit working. I pushed the reset button and tried to push power, but nothing....

First check the outlet the unit is plugged into. It may be dead, due to a circuit breaker being tripped. Also, the interior of the outlet may be damaged or has a loose wire.

If a circuit breaker was tripped, unplug the unit before resetting the circuit breaker. Then plug the unit back in and turn it ON. If the breaker trips again, there may be a short in the AC wiring or there is another electric appliance on that same circuit, that may be causing an overload, when the AC unit is ON.

Hope this helps you to start troubleshooting the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

A/C runs three to four minutes; shuts off. Press, reset button, on the power cord (note: a/c inserted in power strip; and I've tried other outlets, as well).

The Power Strip may just be the problem. As far as I know, there are no manufacturers that approve the use of a Power Strip, for their AC unit to be plugged into. I know of two units, that had their electronics fried, while being plugged into a power strip. Which brings us, to the point, that your AC may already being showing the results of being plugged into a power strip. Most don't encourage an plain extension cord

Plug the unit directly into a wall outlet and try lowering the temperature by 3 to 5 degrees F, to see if it will run longer. Also, check your air intake filter and clean it, if necessary.

If the icontinues to turn OFF prematurely, it may be time to decide whether to repair or replace.

I hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Where can I get a manual for my Emerson Quiet Cool Room Air Conditioner? Not sure the model, but these #s were on outside of box: 10DC93 784040B OE21M N14421, is on a little sticker on the right...

Let see if I can help. The numbers don't come up so we'll just try your information.

Exhaust - should be closed when using for Air Conditioning
Energy savings turns the fan off with the compressor when set for Air Conditioning
Fan Only means just that (no Air Conditioning)

Fan speeds Quite same as low, Norm same as medium, Super same as High
Temp settings, what the thermostat senses before cycling compressor.

No power supplied when plugged in. The test button won't result in anything. I'm assuming this is an electrical problem and the power cord might have fused out.

It could be that. Or it could be a problem with the outlet it's plugged into. Check the circuit breaker panel for a tripped breaker. Also, check the outlet for interior damage or a loose wire connection.
In addition, if you haven't already, try plugging it into a different out on a different circuit.

Do this process of elimination, will tell you whether it's the AC unit or the outlet it's plugged into.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

My fridgedaire window unit A/C and heat won't come on. I had replaced an outside light fixture a couple of weeks ago and had turned off the circuit breaker that affected this unit too. Now the unit...

Plug a light into the outlet used for the A/C, if the light does not come on when reset then the circuit breaker that provided the power to the outlet need to be reset or replaced.

Maytag M7Y15F2A-D A/C - won't turn on -long beep then nothing

The beeping might be an alarm that indicates the coils are iced over by too much humidity in the air...and/or the unit is overheating etc.
shut off power to the unit for a few hours, go out somewhere if it is too stuffy inside.. see if the unit operates better when you return... I also suggest not running these things constantly, this causes some units to ice up and **** up the power..
hope the unit does get replaced, newer ones are more efficient.

My power went out so when it came back on we had to go flip the switches on the fuse box but now my ac wont work, we even changed out the outlet to see if that was the problem but it still wont work

I assume since you changed the outlet it is a window unit?

Does the fan work?

If so you either have a thermostat that won't engage the power to the compressor or you have a bad capacitor that starts the compressor. Most units have a start and a run capacitor, but they are often in the same can. Sometimes you can ground out the cap- with the unit UNPLUGGED!- by using a screwdriver and shorting each cap pin to ground-. Prepare yourself for a loud POP when you do this. Sometimes this works to get the cap working again- but just sometimes.

Since it quit working after the power went out maybe you had a surge that fried a component. Also, when you changed the outlet did you check that you were actually getting voltage? Depending on your unit it could be a number of things from the cord to a switch. Make sure you have the thermostat set for coldest and see if that does it. Sometimes it is just something simple like that and it happens to the best of us from time to time.
