Replaced window unit - new one won't power up (2nd model)

The new A/C is actually a Samsung Energy Saver AW18ECB7 (not found on the list) My old Fredrich (23,000 BTU and 208-230v) widow unit was not blowing cold air; just the fan would turn on. I bought the new A/C (18,000 BTU and 208-230v) and installed it. It is for a 625 sq ft area that includes a kitchen. The new one would not power on. (There is a reset and test button on the plug w/ a green light to indicate it was working). The green light would not turn on and the A/C would not power on. I plugged the old A/C back in to make sure the outlet was working - it was working fine. I took the A/C back and got a replacement - same model. I installed it today, but it also will not power on. The house was built in 1937 and the wiring was redone approximately 1977. The outlet is on it's own breaker and rated for 20A-230v. The plug looks like this: II The outlet looks like this: IL I don't understand why it will run the old one that is much bigger BTU's and the same volts...

Get an adapter so the correct plug goes into your outlet

How can I turn on the energy saver on my LWHD2400HR air conditioner? There is no switch on the A/C, only an indicator light that says "Energy Saver"?

The Energy Saver mode is activated by using the hand held remote control, that comes with the unit. Pressing the Energy Saver button activates it. Once activated the fan will shut OFF when the the compressor does. After which, about every 3 minutes the fan will turn ON to check the room air to determine if cooling is needed.

It sounds like, you're missing the hand held remote control?

My airconditioner has been on energy saver for almost 2 days and will not come on what should be do

If this is a window or wall unit. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF. Unplug the unit and wait 12-15 minutes. Then, plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the controls on anything except energy saver. If the unit then operates as it should, let it run for at least an hour before switching it to Energy Saver Mode. If that's the way you want to operate it. If it doesn't restart and run like it should or it shuts OFF on Energy Saver Mode, there is a problem with one of the setting sensors and needs to be replaced.

Also, while you have the unit unplugged, check the outlet to make sure it's still active. You can do this by plugging in a lamp. If the lamp doesn't work, the circuit breaker for that outlet has been tripped in your home's circuit breaker panel and needs to be reset. When you plug the AC unit back in and it trips the breaker again, there is an electrical short or overload in the AC Unit.

Please keep in mind everything I suggested is based on your AC being a 120 volt window or wall unit.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

Dripping air conditoner

The "drip pan" is actually the entire base srround of the unit. There are two critical things you must confirm 1) is the unit angled back to the outside(you need water to flow away from the inside) and 2) there may be a plug/obstruction in the outer casing where the water is intended to drain from. You should check to see if either or both of these conditions exsist.

This goldstar air conditioner model is WG2405RY7 It has an energy saver, but the unit just keeps running and won't shut off, everything else works.

Doe's the temp reach the set point? If not then it will run until it doe's. If you set the stat warmer and the fan keeps running after compressor shuts off check to make sure it is in power saver mode. Most AC units keep more even temp when fan is left on.
