GE APH10AA - beeps once when plugged in but doesnt turn on

Hi, I have a GE portable air conditioner, I believe the model is APH10AA. It's been working, then one night when I go to turn it on, it doesnt turn on. I tried unplugging it and plug it back in. When I plugged it back in it beeps once, but is still not coming on. However the blades that moves to circulate the air is moving, but no fan comes on and no "ON" light turns on. What could be wrong? Is the complressor locked up ? Any help is appreciated !!! Thanks

It could be just the start capacitor for the compressor that has gone out. Easy way of checking is to take a screwdriver and short across the leads after you have unhooked it from the wiring connectors (don't touch metal while doing this, it CAN shock you) and take an analog meter, put it on ohms for resistance, and touch it across the two connectors. The meter should jump, then switch leads and touch them again. It should jump consistently like this. If it's not that, then it's probably either faulty wiring, switch or if all else fails it could be the compressor went to ground. Take off the leads going to it, again set the meter to full resistance, and put one lead on copper tubing going into the compressor, and touch each pin of the connector on unit. If any of them read anything, then it is the compressor. Hope this helps.

You could try GE Parts Service. You will need the correct Model Number of your portable AC Unit to do this.

And you can also try Factory Appliance Parts. Again, you will need the correct Model Number .

Hope this helped to get you started. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have a GE APN10AA portable A/C unit haven't used it in a few years and I think that you need to put water in it prior to running it but can't find the owners manual - any help

I have the APH10AA model and the manual is compatible with the APN10 model as well. It claims that with regular use the unit produces water on its own. It has a built in evaporator but may occasionally have to be drained. A manual for this unit can be found at GEAPPLIACES.COM. Just need to input your model number and search "use and care manuals" in the top right corner of their site.

My ge ac model APE07AHM1 is not blowing cold air. What could be the problem?

This is an old question, but I am having the same problem with APE07AHM1 that I bought second hand. I'd like to recharge it.

The answer by binev_78 seems to be for outdoor AC compressor units but this is a portable stand alone unit, no outdoor unit.
