SOURCE: Air conditioner line freezing up

Check to make sure the filter inside the air handler is clean and that no vents are closed or blocked by furnature or rugs. Check the air handler to see if the blower is operating. You could have a belt off, the door switch could be in the open position or something simple like that. If this checks out OK., you will need to have a technician check the charge

SOURCE: Breaker keeps tripping

Your compressor could be going bad. You would need to check to amp draw on the the leads coming out of the compressor. There is a maximum rating listed on data plate. Something simple could be that your condenser the out side part of the unit is dirty. All you have to do is turn off the shut off switch out side, get a hose and some dish soap and wash the coils. Be careful with the water presssure not to bend the fins. Or some thing even a lot of techs look over is the breaker is bad.

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-

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!

The reset button that came on the cord of my Fedders model AED24E7F-C keeps tripping after a short while. Otherwise the unit blows cold and works fine. I can hit the off button when it is working fine...


Do you have anything else on the same circuit? I have heard about many of these units, not just Fedders, that will not run on a circuit that has another appliance or something that is pulling a lot of amperage. Also, check and make sure the receptacle is not worn and the plug is loose fitting. Other wise, you definitely could have a weak internal connection in the cord. Hope this helps.

Zenith ZW6500R Air conditioner No Power


The reset button on the power cord has to be really pushed in until you feel a click. It is a soft button, so you might think you have pushed it in enough but you must feel the click. After the first reset you no longer have to press the button unless you have other electrical power issues that trip the button.

The fuse bloww try replacing it but keep


Has this air conditoner been running on these fuses for awhile, and is it just now starting to blow the fuses? If so then have a short in the air conditioner. If this is the first time you're trying to run this unit on these fuses, then you need to check the rating plate on the air conditioner for the full or rated load amps and see if your fuses or the outlet rating will carry the amps the unit is drawing.

Power cord


The unit may be drawing more current than the outlet can withstand. Also check to see if the chord is secured and properly installed. The outlet itself may have a loose wire so check to make sure it's good. Otherwise it could simply be the reset switch is burnt out and will keep tripping no matter what. Replace if neccessary. Hope this helped.

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.
