Apparently the gfci on the plug (the reset button) has gone bad. The best thing to do is to purchase a new cord and replace it. These switches sometimes go bad. Good Luck

    SOURCE: Frigidaire air smells bad

    Clean the front filter and any coils you can reach. Units should be cleaned every year before use. Also make sure you are not circulating air from the outside in and you are bringing in external odors.

    The display is only showing one out of the two digit temperature setting. How can I fit it?

    window air conditioners are great for cooling a room and even to take the heat out of a house. I have done it for years now here in Florida and have central air but rarely run it like today it is about 90 and I have only one window unit running and it does a great job. When It goes out I will go to Wal-mart and spend about 150 buck and just buy a new unit, ( maybe less) get the 5000 btu if you can. What I am trying to say is don't bother fixing that unit, they are a throw away item.

    Fault E3 Have same problem, fan works fine but will not turn on cold air. Display shows "e3". I have a remote, but do not see a button "c".

    Try this : Start the unit using the remote control, after that push the C button of remote control if C display at the unit then off the unit and plug out the power supply. Then plug in again and "on" the unit using the remote control.

    Our Kreisler air conditioner is rarely used, is 7 years old and will not switch on. The batteries have been renewed on the remote. Could it be the sensor in the unit? Do I need a service man?

    The first thing I would suggest it to verify that power is provided to the unit. You should get a display on the face of the indoor unit if there is power. If there is power, try turning the outdoor unit off for a few seconds and back on to reset the controller. If your unit is like I think it is, the indoor unit receives its power and control signal from the outdoor unit, then the remote utilizes a rf signal to control the system. Also try new batteries in YOUR remote.

    Air conditioner unit on the wall not working, and the remnote does not turn it on, the indicator lights are not lit either.

    Please check teh power to the wall unit first, then if this is present check the remote control, check the battery. Point the remote to your phone camera and see if the camera detects the IR emission. If so the remote is working and the power supply has failed on the AC unit.
    Open to check on the main power circuit , the program controller circuit.

    Off all winter; now won't turn on. Used remote


    I am assuming that nothing comes on in the display.

    power cord for continuity,
    power to board, if OK, replace board.

    These are the only two things I can think of that can stop compressor and fan from working.

    Window unit will not power up

    You need to check for voltage to the display. Just knowing the plug is working doesn't tell you that the electronics are getting power. It is possible that the power cord is bad. Once you have tested the unit and the unit is actually getting power to the display, then it's probably the control board in this unit.

    Could be the main control board.

    Could be that somebody has been messing with the dipswitches beneath the control board.

    No Display on controller

    Try replacing the battery but if it wont work you need to replace the remote control itself, but for the main time you can operate the unit by pressing the emergency switch button to operate the unit manually.
