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!

Have model ASTB24LDC/AOTS24LDC Inverter Fujitsu split system. As of Thursday 11th Nov, unit stopped working. Won't respond with remote. An electrician came to test it this morning, says there is power to...


I have same problem like yours to my newlyinstalled Fujitsu multi-split system (the first time use since system installed1 week ago). I rang the electrician whodid the installation; he said it must be the units themselves nothing to dowith electricity. Okay, then I rang Fujitsu and their local service agent. Theysuggested me to switch off C/B for an hour to reset the units. I followed theinstruction but the indoor units still did not respond to remote control...

It simply looks like no power supply to indoor units (they are hard-wired tothe outdoor unit). So I used a multi-meter to test the power terminals of indoorunits (Danger! If you have no idea about this, don't even try! ): it seemed nopower supply even C/B is on. I turned to the isolator which next to the outdoorunit. The isolator was making arcing noise when I switched it on and off. Theindoor units suddenly turned on for few minutes then died again. So I figuredout the problem is that crooked isolator. I called the unhappy electricianto replace the isolator. End story....
I hope my experience will give a littlehelp to you...

To have a contractor in your area look at this unit, try using the contractor search on the home page of fixYa, or simply use the yellow pages for your area.

My guess is that the lighting burnt or damaged the motor windings in the fan. I am sure that replacing the motor would solve this issue. I do not know where to find one though. I hope this helps some.

When turned on, the unit sounds like it will start then turns off within a minute.


Presently according to my information there is no recalls for Fedders products at this time for this model type.

Fedders Y Chassis Quit Running


Bummer. I bought an AEY08F2G that put out no warm air and very little cool air. Fedders filed chapter 11 in August. They do not honor warranties now, and apparently offer no repair service. I was fortunate that I bought mine from Venting Direct, and the unit was still within the 60 defective return period. They told me that Fedders units are junk. They provided full credit for the unit (plus shipping costs) without requiring that the unit be returned to them. My advice is to toss it. Live and learn.

Danby DPAC10061 portable air conditioner problem


you may have a factory defective unit that is not turning off the anti-frost heating coil (I have assumed yours contains this item based on your problem description). I would trade it in for a new unit, again assuming you have a warranty or the store offers a good in-store return policy. If this plan bombs, then open the unit and find the heating coil near the cool side of the radiator fins. then disconnect the power wires to the heater and prevent electrical short to wires with quality electrical tape.
