Keeps blowing 3 amp fuses when i turn the air conditioning on.


Ok, If 3 amp fuse is blowing in the air handler unit when switch is turned to cool check to see if outside unit jump starts and stops when this happens. If this is the case wiring is fine check main relay in outdoor unit. There will be a spring contact on main relay (Black relay close to where wires come into unit), check for corrosion or carbon build-up on little round contacts. If you can clean contacts with a small piece of sand paper. Make sure all breakers are off before removing cover! You might have to remove relay in order to clean it. Make sure you write down exact locations of any wires you remove. This should fix the problem.

I already sent in a question Order # 29744. Our window air conditioner Frigididaire Gallery blows out black particles about 1/8-1/4 inch in size. What is it? Is it dangerous? Please answer immediately. ...


Probably, what you're seeing is rust from the drain pan under the unit, that has become dislodged and is being picked up by the AC unit's fan or it could be the air intake filter breaking down and being blown in the house. Have you removed and inspected the air intake filter for dirt or clogs or deterioration ?

These are the things you need to inspect and troubleshoot first, to determine where they are coming from. If the unit is continuing to cool, as it should, I suspect that what I mentioned above may be the cause of the particles.

If it's the air intake filter replace it. If the particles appear to be rusty or slick, try flushing the drain pan under the outside of the unit. Be sure the outside of the unit is tiled down at least 1/4". Or it will not drain properly.

Is this a dangerous situation? I don't feel comfortable saying "Yes" or "No". But, it has to be a messy one. Be sure to turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit, before attempting to troubleshoot anything.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks

My Fresh Air by EcoQuest blows out black like dust/substance. So much so that around the unit and on the wall is turning black. Is this working properly?


The unit is designed to drop particulates out of the air. If you have a heavily polluted area there are more allergens/dust in the air and this might create a 'dust-shower'.
The unit charges particles negatively so the particles bond with positively charged particles. Then the particles drop out of the air or stick to a nearby object. This could leave some black stuff on the wall. You can easily wipe this off, most of this is grime/dust.
