I suggest you check the ground of the wall socket. Many three proung sockets are not grounded.

SOURCE: I have a Sharp portable

the fused9G.F.C.I.) cord you speak of is probably the G.F.C.I. built onto these units by design, can you or someone you know get access inside the unit and :Hot-Wire" the units cord and,bypass the power cord ( Just To Test the Unit)and see if it stays operational then replace bad unit cord if this is it.

Sounds like there is something grounded inside the A/C unit or a fan or the compressor locked up. Could also be a motor winding in the compressor or one of the fans shorted thru.

There is a fuse inside the control panel of the AC itself. You have to take the cover off (from inside on the ceiling) and look up in there with a flashlight to find it. It is usually a very small amperage fuse - I think a 1 or maybe a 5 amp.

hope this helps

good luck

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!

NewAir AC 1400E. No green light on plug. Pushing reset button does nothing. Has been running OK. Outlet is live. Does not need draining. Any ideas?


If the reset button is not doing what it should. Try these solutions listed below::

Remove and replace the water collection bucket. Making sure the float valve (if your has one) inside the top of bucket is not stuck in the UP position. Also, be sure that the bucket fits squarely into the holder from top to bottom. If it doesn't, it won't trigger the buck removal safety switch.

If that didn't work do the following:

Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet.
Wait 15 minutes, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON.

Generally, doing the above, allows the unit to reset and revert back to the original factory settings and you can proceed from there. If it still does not work, there may be a problem with the cord & reset switch. The best way to find out is test the continuity of the cord, with a multimeter.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

My fridgedaire window unit A/C and heat won't come on. I had replaced an outside light fixture a couple of weeks ago and had turned off the circuit breaker that affected this unit too. Now the unit...


Plug a light into the outlet used for the A/C, if the light does not come on when reset then the circuit breaker that provided the power to the outlet need to be reset or replaced.

I have an Amana ptac hotel type thru the wall unit. The unit won't turn on - it's plugged in. The gfi button is popped out. There is power to the wall plug. Any ideas?


Hi,
If you reset the GFCI button and then when you go to turn it on the button pops again, then you have a short inside the units probably in the fan motor or the compressor..

This is from Sharp's website...apparently an addendum to the instruction booklet. When you get E1:
Unplug. Press and keep pressing the On/Off button on the unit. Plug unit back in. Wait until unit beeps (about 5 seconds) then release On/Off button. Unplug unit. Plug unit back in.
You're good to go.
