Question about Frigidaire FAC124 wall/Window Air Conditioner

Open Question

Turned off power to window unit (12,000BTU) but a fan still running. We have to disconnect power cord from wall to shut it down

We turned off our air conditioner but the inside fan still running, we have to disconnect from power to get it to stop. What could cause this? The lights on the panel are off. Nothing will respond. We plug power cord back in and the fan continues to run.

clean your return air filter, and while you have the front cover off you may want to clean the evaporator as well (it's the silver grill looking thing) some compressors come off their springs during transport and will rattle for years but still work fine.

SOURCE: Air conditioner turns on then shuts itself off immediately

There's something wrong with your aircon. Usually the lights will start to blink. Depending on the brand and model, the number of times it blinks will give you an error code which tells you what's spoilt. You may like to check this out http://www.astiquer.com/blinking.html

SOURCE: My window unit fell out of the window and hung by

Its most likely is not the switch. It is most likely the cord though. Due to the excess strain on the cord it has probably cut through the rubber coating on the wire and connected to the frame and grounded the hot lead. Fix the cord and you may have it handled.

Onyko tx nr616 receiver keeps shutting off. Only stays on for approximately 3 seconds. Can you help?


The amp protection circuit has been activated. Remove the power cord from the wall outlet immediately. Disconnect all speaker cables and input sources, and leave the AV receiver with its power cord disconnected for 1 hour. After that, reconnect the power cord and reconnect an input and a pair of speaker wires onto the unit. If the receiver still does not turn on than you will have to bring it in for service. Turn up the volume and if the receiver doesn't shut down, power off the receiver and add another pair of speakers. Power up the unit again and turn up the volume. If it doesn't shut down, power off the unit again. Now connect all your input sources and turn on your receiver. If the unit shuts down again, your unit will need to be further serviced at an authorized Onkyo service center.

The air conditioner runs for a little while then shuts down and flashes the number 31. I cleaned the unit and the filters, but it still does it. What could this mean?


This may help
1) Disconnect power
2) Hold down on/off while plugging cord back in, til you hear a beep
3)unplug again
4) plug in
5) start a/c
Hope this helped Tim if not then I would call the 1-800-237-4277

Fan blade barely rotates when turned on high.


there may be a problem with fan motor,but i believe your problem may be the rotory switch that controlls voltage to fan motor,to check this pull knobs off front ,then remove filter from back,there are 4 screws in bottom of case remove these,pull unit out carefully .there are 5 wires conected to unit ,two for fan 2 for on off switch,1 for ground just what wires go were,then disconnect wires from there posts,and pull unit out of box,find the two wires that go fan,snip wires that go to the circiut board leaving enough space to rewire after test get extention cord and snip off to make direct plug to fan to wall connect extention to the two wires from the fan motor and wire nut or tape so no short,pug extention cord into wall outlet if fan runs on a high rpm or max power,then your rotory switch is no good and you can install an external rotory switch on side of unit,if fan does not run any faster then your fan motor needs replaced,let me no if you need more help
