Question about Frigidaire FAC124 wall/Window Air Conditioner
I removed heater checked power on heat mode connections to heater which was around 320 ac. Seems too high. Is that the problem if not how can I check heater while off unit. thanks
There is probably something going on with the heating part of the unit, and so I would probably look at that part of the appliance if you know where to look. If you aren't sure where to repair it at, I would get a repairman to come and look at your air conditioner. It can be very difficult to fix an appliance such as this if you aren't sure what to look for! http://www.honestairinc.com/ac-repair-replacement

First of all, do you get cool air when it's switched to cool? We want to make sure that the freon in the lines is still good and that you don't have a broken line somewhere. If you don't have heat, it could be a number of things. My guess would be that you have a blown fuse, or a broken circuit along the way. I would put up a voltmeter to some of the inner parts of the board and check it that way.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, pls check the continuity of the heater element itself. Additionally, almost always, heaters have a thermal cut-off in series with the supply line. This is different but in addition to the thermostatic switch that regulates the switching off temperature. Both the thermal cut-off and the thermostatic switch could also be checked with a continuity tester. Normally, both should read 0 ohms. Of course all continuity/resistance readings should be performed with the unit unplug.
The "320 ac" reading is unrealistic, perhaps you can try reading from the mains/outlet and compare.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
