Question about Heating & Cooling

Frigidaire ac unit model number fra065at7 keeps resetting

I bought and installed the unit today. When first turned on everything starts up fine, nice cold air and all. After a few moments though the units lights will all flash at the same time while it also makes a beep and then everything turns off. Then it kicks back on minus the cold air part. It sounds like the compressor is not starting, because it is not so loud once it starts back up after its little sequence. If I leave it one to see if it ever starts back up again it does not, but it does every few moments go through that same sequence of events. If I turn it off, and leave it off for a while, I can then turn it on and the air is cold again and runs fine, until the dreaded sequence rears its ugly head yet again.

I'm willing to bet the unit is not draining properly. Be sure it is level or pitched outside and the water is draining. Good luck.

SOURCE: AC does not cool. Compressor kicks on and off (Humms when trying to start, electrical smell)

There are a couple possibilities:

1. If this is the first time you've started them for the season, one of the compressors might be seized up from sitting over the winter. In which case, new compressor required.

2. If you've just had the compressor serviced including recharging the system, it's possible that the system is simply overcharged. This will stop the compressor from working and giving you the same symptoms as above. If this is the case, you should have the service people come back with some guages and recover some of the refrigerant and the compressor should be fine.

3. If the unit has been sitting and there is a slow leak then there is not enough pressure in the system to allow it to run. The compressor will shut down if there is not enough pressure, but since you say there is a smell, i really doubt this is the case.

Most likely it's #1 or #2 above. If you haven't had it serviced recently, then yeah, it sounds like you're in need of a new compressor.

Good luck.

I would first check the condensate drain pipe. This can be done by blowing back into the drainpipe from outside. Not to worry it is not dirty or dangerous. Also make sure that your air filters are clean.

It sounds like the fan motor needs lubricating. Do you need help with this?

SOURCE: Loud screeching noise coming from the unit.

A screeching or squealing noise usually comes from the fan motor. There may be an oil port and you can buy a small telescoping oil bottle at a super hardware store or an a/c supply house. Before putting in he oil, remember to TURN OFF THE POWER TO THE UNIT and only use a light squeeze on the bottle - over oiling will cause a mess inside the motor. It may be a sealed motor and no oil ports. In either case, budget for a new motor as if it's to the squealing stage, the bearings are already damaged and it's a just matter of time before before the motor bearings fail. If possible, get oil on the bearings ASAP - and use the proper lightweight oil for made for this application.

Ac unit keeps tripping the reset button


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# LRA074AT7, which keeps tripping the reset button. I see that it will start up and then trips the reset button after a minute or two. First, be sure the electrical service is adequate for the model you have chosen. This information can be found on the serial plate, which is located on the side of the cabinet and behind the grille. Secondly, be sure the air conditioner is properly grounded. To minimize shock and fire hazards, proper grounding is important. The power cord is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug for protection against shock hazards. Lastly, your air conditioner must be used in a properly grounded wall receptacle. If the wall receptacle you intend to use is not adequately grounded or protected by a time delay fuse or circuit breaker, have a qualified electrician install the proper receptacle. 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-

Motor fan not working


If you clean and reset the unit, and the fan isn't still working, contact Frigidaire to see if you qualify for any assistance or limited warranty. Most of these small appliances do not have replacement parts since they are so small in BTU size.

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.
