THE CLICKING SOUND IS A RELAY PULLING IN ITS LIKE A SWITCH CONNECTING TWO WIRES. THIS IS A GOOD SOUND BUT IS USALLY FOLLOWED BY SOMETHING COMING ON FAN ETC... CHECK TO SEE IF YOUR UNIT HAS AN LED LIGHT ON IT AND HOW MANY TIMES IF ANY DOES IT BLINK?

SOURCE: Doesn't operate when plugged in

The test and reset is a GFCI device. They do go bad sometimes. The solution is to cut that plug end off, and install a regular cord end that is capable of handling the rated amperage of the unit. ( I assume this is 120-volt unit)

You should replace the wall receptacle with a GFCI receptacle where the unit is plugged in to prevent electrocution

SOURCE: I can't find the reset

If there is one it is rihgt next to where the copper lines enter the outdoor unit. There should also be a none reszetable fuse on the furnace control board

SOURCE: Where's the reset button on a Goodman air

I believe that the higher end units have auto reset pressure switches, if you look down the inside of the unit, you will see one or two pressure switches welded to the lines,,,there are about the size of a "C" cell sized battery, with 2 wires running into them, if it is a manual reset type there will be a small rubber coated button on top, between the 2 wires.
If this has been helpful, please rate me, and/or contact me back with any further questions.
Sincerely,
Paul Gibson

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!

Turn the Master ON/ OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Wait 12-15 minutes and plug the unit back in. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls. The 12-15 minute timeout should have allowed the unit to reset itself.

I got brand new GE air condition and accidentally I pushed test button located on plug (So green light on plug turned off). I tried to start my AC by pressing reset button. But somehow it?s not working....


That is a circuit protector...just like what you would see on a bathroom outlet. It is possible the switch is bad and when you pressed test...it stuck in the open position and will not reset. I would unplug unit and firmly press reset from a couple angles. You may end up getting a new switch for it. Sorry for your inconvenience.... If brand new maybe you can return it?

PTAC UNIT QUIT WORKING


If you have a clamp tester, operate the unit with the clamp tester and check the current reading. If the current reading is normal but the reset button is tipped then there is something wrong withe power plug reset button. But if the current reading is higher than the name plate rating then there is something wrong with the unit.

Air condition problem


An E1 error is automatically generated after the AC runs for so many hours to remind you to clean the filter. The manual says to clean filter and unplug unit, then plug unit back in and code will be reset.
