Fan works, compressor won't come on

Power outage, then power came back on. AC has energy saver button, everything shuts off/turns on like a central unit. The fan still works but the compressor won't kick on when I turn the thermostat switch to the cooler side. Could this be a capacitor, an overload protector, or the thermostat switch?

Blank screen sounds like a fried thermosat. Abrupt outages can affect certain types of thermostats. Make a jumper wire and jump across R and G. See if you get any action from anywhere. If a fan or compressor kicks in you know you have a burned out thermosat...

If you have an electronic thermostat, they can short out, leaving the compressor running. Also, the big relay that runs the compressor can get its contacts welded together. See if the contacts are stuck closed.

How do you turn off power saver on frigidaire air conditioner


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you want to know how to turn off the power save mode for your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FFRE12L3Q1. Your appliance will run in energy saver(econ) mode when used for the first time. In this mode, the fan will continue to run for 1 minute after the compressor shuts off. The fan then cycles on for 20 seconds at 10 minute intervals until the room temperature is above the set temperature, at which time the compressor turns back on. You will be able to turn the energy save mode off by selecting your temperature as well as your fan speed. 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 your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Samsung Refrigerator Error Code 1E or IE


I'm not sure what all the wild goose chase answers are all about, but you guys are WAY overthinking this and not solving the problem. I'm a 45 year old stay at home mom, decidely and possibly forever "un-handy". The solution is simple, as I just administered it this morning after a self-imposed power outage: Press the "Energy Saver" + "Lighting" button simultaneously for 3-5 seconds and you should be back in business. When this happened on a previous occasion, we had a repair guy come out, although the fridge was operating perfectly bc we weren't sure if that error message was indicating something important. Well, I felt like a schmuck when the guy showed me how to reset the panel (and we were both a bit irritated that phone tech support didn't do a better job of level 1 troubleshooting). So there it is...if your fridge is working fine but showing 1E, press Energy saver + Ligthing at the same time (you may need a flashlight since the panel will be dark).

My Dometic AC on my travel trailer cools well but I cannot set the fan to stay on when the compressor cycles off. Can a different switch or board be installed to allow the fan to stay on?


An energy saver setting is what it sounds like. Turn off energy saver feature and fan should run 100% and compressor cycle on-off separately.If not familiar with energy saver setting .make sure it has one or not before disregarding this.

How can I turn on the energy saver on my LWHD2400HR air conditioner? There is no switch on the A/C, only an indicator light that says "Energy Saver"?


The Energy Saver mode is activated by using the hand held remote control, that comes with the unit. Pressing the Energy Saver button activates it. Once activated the fan will shut OFF when the the compressor does. After which, about every 3 minutes the fan will turn ON to check the room air to determine if cooling is needed.

It sounds like, you're missing the hand held remote control?

My airconditioner has been on energy saver for almost 2 days and will not come on what should be do


If this is a window or wall unit. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF. Unplug the unit and wait 12-15 minutes. Then, plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the controls on anything except energy saver. If the unit then operates as it should, let it run for at least an hour before switching it to Energy Saver Mode. If that's the way you want to operate it. If it doesn't restart and run like it should or it shuts OFF on Energy Saver Mode, there is a problem with one of the setting sensors and needs to be replaced.

Also, while you have the unit unplugged, check the outlet to make sure it's still active. You can do this by plugging in a lamp. If the lamp doesn't work, the circuit breaker for that outlet has been tripped in your home's circuit breaker panel and needs to be reset. When you plug the AC unit back in and it trips the breaker again, there is an electrical short or overload in the AC Unit.

Please keep in mind everything I suggested is based on your AC being a 120 volt window or wall unit.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

Model number HBLG 12303r how does the energy saver setting work bought this model used.


The energy saver setting will turn the blower fan off when the thermostat reaches the desired room temperature (with the compressor). Other non energy savers only cycle the compressor to regulate the room temp. so their fans will operate continusously using more electricity.

This goldstar air conditioner model is WG2405RY7 It has an energy saver, but the unit just keeps running and won't shut off, everything else works.


Doe's the temp reach the set point? If not then it will run until it doe's. If you set the stat warmer and the fan keeps running after compressor shuts off check to make sure it is in power saver mode. Most AC units keep more even temp when fan is left on.

Shutting off


I would try the same solution as the E1 error code, Not sure if it will work, but it seems to be the same issue


1. Power down the air conditioner using the "power" button on the front
panel.
2. Unplug the air conditioner from the wall socket.
3. Hold the front panel "power" button down and plug the air
conditioner in. Continue to hold the power button down as the machine
goes through a brief test sequence (fan & compressor each come on
briefly, etc). There is a "beep" sound at the end of the test sequence,
and the machine will be off. At this point, you can release the power
button.
4. Unplug the air conditioner.
5. Plug the air conditioner back in.
6. Congratulations! You should now be able to operate the air
conditioner normally for another 720 hours, but only if you followed
the instructions above EXACTLY.
