    I went outside to see I could tell what the problem was and believe it or not, there is a big birds nest in between the slats of the casing that houses the AC unit. I have a feeling that could be the problem, unfortunately I live in a condo and have to wait until Monday to deal with the maintenance manager about this.

Why does my brand new wall AC unit turn on but the fan does not work?

Good Afternoon Michael,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FRA14EHT2, and the fan not turning on, even though the compressor turns on. Being that this is an air conditioning, I suggest either calling your local authorized technician or possibly the manufacturer. One of which will be able to assist and direct you in the right direction of having your air conditioner working. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Ac fan not running, but compressor runs on and off

switch/ fuse possible if it has one, if not one of the wire going to the motor was severed, or the start up capacitor of the motor if it also has one.

Air conditioner has loud hollow sound

After mine set up, I turned it on and it made a steady clanking sound, turns out there is black foam that is supposed to be glued behind the cooling fan and it had come undone and was hitting the fan. Slide the unit out of its shell and reach your hand in there and see if anything has come loose. (the fan towards the rear of the unit) good luck.

Cooling doesn't stay on

The outside and inside coils may need cleaning. Clogged coils cause excess pressures and heat of the freon that can cause safety switches to shut er down. Eveen a faulty power relay in the outside unit.Otherwise you may need a serviceman to locate the cause.

HI,my air conditioner became really loud. it still works a little bit but not as good. sounds like someting isnt working right. frigidaire energy star model FAH106R2T. I TRIED TESTING IT AND RESETING IT...

Dave, a high pitch is usually a fault at the blower motor/dry bearings. Or an issue with the freon circulation causing a noise. And it being only a year old doesn't mean it's still a new unit. I've pulled parts and equipment out of the factory packaging, and it was junk, broken, or damaged. Try turning the cooling off and fan on only. If the problem persists with the fan only, you're certain that the trouble is there. Try to see if something is on the blower wheel/blades. Debris or plastic?

Fidgerdare electrtolux air conditioner

have you brought it down for a general cleaning on the 3 year period? if not then that's what it needs now.

the coil is freezing up because of dirt accumulation on the coil. even there is a filter, still with in 3 years it could have accumulated to decrease the airflow thru the coil and freeze it up.

tnx 4 using fixya,
