Question about Fedders A6X05F2D Air Conditioner

1 Answer

I have a Fedders Model AEJ 12 E 7AB REV N installed in Nov 2000. When running the heat Monday night, we had sparks and smoke come out of the unit. A terrible smell took over the house for a few hours. We immediately pulled the plug and hit the circuit breaker. The sparks (fire?) came from behind the top louvers/grill. I think it may have been from lack of cleaning? We used to clean the filter regularly and only recently did we begin to get lax with it, so we may have gone about 6 months or more without cleaning. It was very very dirty. Is there something I should/could replace, or should I get a service person in here to look it over thoroughly?

I am a heating and cooling extrodinaire and it sounds like the blower motor has failed, but it could also be electrical burnout.(ciruit board, coil on a relay etc..) I would call a service tech. Most motors that are mounted in the air stream are called air over motors so if the filter was plugged and not letting enough air over the motor, its a good chance that the motor over heated.

I replaced all of the contractor installed smoke detectors with First Alert Model P1210 detectors.


The replacement smoke detectors may have had low batteries when installed or the contractor-selected mounting locations may be wrong.

I have a Fedders dehumidifier Model A7DH45B2A REV-A. The nipple on the float broke off. Where can I buy a float? Do you have one? How much is it?


Although Fedders, as you knew it is no longer in business, some parts are still available.

Here is a link, with an explodes view of your model's parts.Locate th epart you need and then enter the part number, to see if it's still available. FYI Maytag Dehumidifier parts are interchangeable with Fedders. Fedders made the units for Maytag.

I have a FEDDERS PTAC/HP -07B/09B/12B/15B. It blows cold air only. NO HEAT!


First of all check your unit model has heater system. And then

Toget proper heat, keep your temp setting at 30+ degree and also mode in "heat"position. If still no heat, check your heating sensor for closed circuit by anOHMs metre.It it's with RV, check power to RV.If it's with heatingelement check power to element. If power is there but still no heat meanselement defective. Replace new heating element. Thanks.

Smokes bad when burner kicks on


Hey mate,

What brand of burner are you running? I am a Karcher Tech but they all work on the same principle,

Your burner is getting to much diesel/kero, most have little flow swicthes on them to tell them to pump fuel or spark when there is water present in the burner coil, if this switch is faulty or getting a faulse reading then it will tell the unit to pump fuel when it is not needed and this will cause very excessive smoke for the first few mins when the burner kicks in...

If you have the excessive smoke continuously(even after 10 mins of continous use then it is probable that your fuel pump/system is running to rich, these units need regular servicing and adjustments as fuel nozzles/components wear,

There is alot of precise adjustments and checks on these units and i would reccommend getting it checked by a qualified tech, as when there is heated fuel and spark these units can be dangerous!

Hope this helps

Regards
Brad

check your filter if thats clogged that will send a four flash limit open or your blower motor might be bad these units are known to have popped rings and cracks on thier heat exchangers if there isnt enough airflow if your filter is clogged or motor is shot i would call someone monday and get your heat exchanger inspected
