Window a/c unit won't turn on...dead.

Window a/c unit was working fine, then it was turned off, unplugged and breaker thrown in order to remove outlet plug. Cut and replaced new bead board. Wired plug back up and the unit will now do nothing. Even replaced the plug but still nothing. The outlet tests hot so evidently it's something with the a/c unit.

My electricity went out when I had my window unit on and now my TV won"t come on. My tv is a lil over a year old. Why is this happening


Hi Morris

Am suspecting your electric or power supply.
I need you to try the following steps.
1. unplug all your units or appliances
2. Reset your circuit breaker
3. try to plug your tv only and turn it On, if its turn On, then your tv is Ok
4. You mention window unit, is this aircondition window type?
Now try to plug this window unit and turn it On, if electricity went out again, then the problem is in your circuit breaker.

It could be the specs or rating of your circuit breaker does not much with the rating of your window unit.

Lights and outlets on one side of room work,outlets on other side of room do not work. no juice to either outlet.


Have you checked the breaker box? Usually this is a thrown breaker; flip the switch, by turning it completely off, then back to on.

the thermostat is powered by the unit or batteries if batteries they may be dead if the unit you need to check fuses outside at unit or reset breaker outside depending on age of installation

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.

Our window AC unit stopped suddenly. Completely dead. The outlet has power. It's a 220V unit. LG window AC LW2510ER Any advise what it could be? Does it shut down when it's 100F outside? Thanks...


No - the outside temperature will not shut the AC down.
You say the outlet has power? Does it have the needed 220 volts? Most of the time 220 volts is on one switch, (that operates both 110 volt legs of power at the same time). - but sometimes each leg is on a separate breaker and if "one leg" trips you will still have power at the outlet (110 volts) but you won't have the needed 220 volts. While this is not likely - it is possible - so I would want to test the outlet with a voltage tester and determine the voltage. You might try checking in your breaker box and seeing if another breaker (110volt) is tripped. The same thing applies if you are dealing with fuses instead of breakers - determine the voltage at the outlet - and if you don't have 220 and only have 110 then look for a blown fuse or as I said above - a breaker tripped.
If you do have 220 at the outlet and nothing is running - I would be looking for an inline fuse of some sort within in the unit. Many of the newer units have them and they are usually easy to spot and all you have to do is to unscrew the fuse holder and replace the blown fuse. Be sure to have the power off when handling fuses.
Note: Be aware that while breakers/fuses can trip and blow without a serious problem going on - they (blown fuses/tripped breakers) are usually a sign of something significantly wrong with the unit.
Good Luck!

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.

We had a power outage and now our Maytage Gemeni stove won't go back on. Can't test the outlet, of course, since it's that weird huge plug, but all the other electricity is fine. The oven is completely...


Hi!!
Check breaker box for a tripped Double Breaker, probably 30A, If breakers are OK, unplug unit from wall outlet and wait 15 min. to reset the control board, plug unit it back up and check Range. You can check for power at the outlet using a voltmeter set on the AC mode.
Keep me posted!!

The unit just stopped working and will not turn on


I'm assuming 'nothing' comes on when you try to run the AC unit. If the fan runs but the AC does not cool then ignore the below info, but if "nothing comes on" then proceed with the below info.

If the breakers are not tripped and you've tried other outlets (on different breakers) I would suspect a faulty switch. You can replace the switch ( If it's not computerized). First unplug the unit from the wall and locate the switch (it will be the one that has the knob that controls "fan, Hi Cool, Lo Cool, etc etc.) then remove the switch - 'being careful to mark all the wires in such a manner you can replace them on the new switch, exactly like they came off the old one.'

Then if you take the switch to an appliance shop and can find/order the 'exact' same switch (or at least a comparable replacement with the same connections as the old one) you could re-install it on the unit, connect your wires back up to the switch and plug it back into the outlet and see if that was your problem.

good luck!

Microwave won't turn on. Seems like it is not getting power. I checked breaker. I am looking for a fuse. You know where one is? It is a GE Spacemaker(2 yrs old) model # JVM1440WH04


  • Make sure that the microwave is plugged into a grounded outlet. It must be a 3-prong outlet.
  • Make sure the clock is set.
  • Check to see if a programming sequence was entered. Sometimes improper programming or a program sequence such as delay start can cause the touch panel to be non-responsive. Unplug microwave or turn off house circuit breaker for 30 seconds. Plug back in, or reset circuit breaker, and try reprogramming unit.
  • Check the house circuit breaker or fuse box. If the microwave is DEAD and there is no display and nothing works- the problem could be a blown fuse or tripped breaker.
