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.

SOURCE: my fridgedaire window unit A/C and heat won't

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

Electrical panel does not work


Hey John, this is JK. I understand that the display on your range is not working. You may have a faulty Electronic Oven Control (EOC). Please confirm there is power to the appliance. If there is no power verify that the power cord is properly attached to the unit, plugged into a dedicated outlet correctly, and that the circuit breaker/fuse is not tripped or blown. Also verify the power at the plug is correct. Is the time of day displayed when the clock button is pressed? Are you able to turn the clock OFF or ON? When the display is turned OFF the time of day will re-appear for a few seconds any time the pad is touched. To toggle the display ON or OFF, press and hold the CLOCK button until the control beeps once (about 15 seconds). If all of these suggestions pan out and the problem still persists, think about what may have happened prior to this occurrence. For instance, did you notice any error codes, odors, or other strange functions prior to this issue? If you are still having these issues and can think of anything in particular, please feel free to reconnect. Hope this helps!

Reset button ac unit


Hello jerrydj1021 - Often when the breaker trips, it is a mainly because there is too much current running on one circuit. Is the unit plug into a GFI outlet? It is not recommended to use GFI outlets or too many appliances plugged into that one circuit. Try plugging the unit into another direct outlet and see if the breaker trips again. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if the unit's status has changed successfully. Thank you.

Could be just a fuse but probably the diode pack or magnetron.

I have a Frigidaire air conditioner. I've never had a problem with it,at all until a few minutes ago. It all of a sudden quit working. I pushed the reset button and tried to push power, but nothing....


First check the outlet the unit is plugged into. It may be dead, due to a circuit breaker being tripped. Also, the interior of the outlet may be damaged or has a loose wire.

If a circuit breaker was tripped, unplug the unit before resetting the circuit breaker. Then plug the unit back in and turn it ON. If the breaker trips again, there may be a short in the AC wiring or there is another electric appliance on that same circuit, that may be causing an overload, when the AC unit is ON.

Hope this helps you to start troubleshooting the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My a/c unit keeps tripping when i plug it in. i've tried to hit the reset button on the plug but doesnt do anything. i unplug and plug back into outlet and it trips again. what can i do to fix it?


Hi,
There is nothing you can do to fix it... the compressor is trying to start and cannot so it trips the plug. The plug trips to protect the house circuit from being overloaded and causing a fire.
Getting the compressor replaced is cost prohibitive, it is cheaper to buy a new unit.

Demudifier worked great, all a sudden it just stopped. No power. Now it won't start up. What should I try?


First, check the outlet that it's plugged into, to make sure that there's still power to the outlet. If there isn't, then the circuit breaker for that outlet has been tripped, in your home's circuit breaker panel. Leave the dehumidifier unplugged and reset the circuit breaker. If it trips again, without the dehumidifier unplugged, then the outlet is at fault. Perhaps there's a loose wire connection or the interior of the outlet is cracked.

If it didn't trip without the dehumidifier plugged in, plug the unit it in,. But, before you do, make sure the dehumidifier's Master ON/OFF Switch is OFF. Once it's plugged in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls. If it runs now, GREAT! If it trips the circuit breaker again, there's either a short in the power cord or an internal electrical short. Which will require extensive troubleshooting to find.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Hi, my Frigidaire AC (FAA068P7A) unit was working fine last year. Put it back in the window today and now it won't power on. I checked the power cord, but cord is fine (I actually opened up the machine...


Sounds like a breaker has tripped (caused by the unit) or is it might just be 'off' for some reason. I would check the outlet (where the AC plugs in at).

If the AC is a 110V unit you can check the outlet by plugging in something else, i.e. a hairdryer. If the hairdryer doesn't work either - then you know your breaker is tripped. On the other hand if the hairdryer 'works' then you know the problem is in the unit, where I'm afraid you'd be better off to have a technician to trouble-shoot it, although you could try sending additional information at this point for more help.

Remember if it is a breaker tripped - it was probably tripped by a malfunctioning Air Conditioner so if it 'trips' again in the immediate future you will need someone to check it out.

good luck!
