Question about Frigidaire fas296r2a 28,500 btu heavy-duty room airfor 220 volts only-"
Uni has power to outlet, plug is not tripped, but nothing appears on display and unit will not turn on. Opened it up and everything looks ok, don't see any fuses.
Hello Chris - Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips
that may help you resolve this issue:
· Check the power cord connection to the wall outlet is secure.
· Make sure that the house circuit breaker has not tripped.
· Try testing the air conditioner. Make sure the unit is turned off, Press the TEST button, you will notice a click as the BUTTON pops out. Then press the RESET button. Again, you will notice a click as the button engages, now turn unit on. If the LCDI plug does not reset the cord may be damaged.
· The "Cool" circuit has an automatic 3-minute compressor time delayed start if the unit is turned off and on quickly. This prevents overheating of the compressor and possible circuit breaker tripping. And the fan will continue to run during this time.
· If the unit has been turned off and on rapidly or if the thermostat was changed to a lower number and then immediately turned back to a higher number the compressor may not start. You must turn the unit off and wait a minimum of 3 minutes for the unit to equalize before restarting.
If these assessment measures prove to be ineffective, I would strongly suggest contacting an authorized service technician who would be better able to assist you in the diagnosis and repair of your unit. You can often locate an experienced technician in your area by going to the manufacturer website.

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.

Testimonial: "Thank you. I had pretty much come to that conclusion. I think It may be a faulty outlet or circuit breaker, like you said. Thanks for the advice!"
SOURCE: while running in a screw
You say the unit is 220 volt, but the plug you installed has a white wire which is normally on a 120 volt outlet. A 220 volt outlet would have 2 black wires and ground. If you do have 220 there, and the reset does no good, I've seen those resets(they are basically built in GFI) blow out and had to bypass/put different chord on. there are fuses on the control board but I would check that last
