Not generally there should be a hot, a neutral and a ground for 110VAC if 220 two hot and a ground, if you are reading voltage on your ground, the braker of fuse should have tripped or blown, and you have a component that is shorted.

Bought the Frigidaire 6000 BTU Window Room Air Conditioner LRA067AT7 6 months ago and it worked fine until last week, It will not turn on although plugged in and the wall outlet is good. Is there an auto...

Good Morning Luca,

I understand your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# LRA067AT7, will not turn on. I also see that the wall outlet is good, so you are wondering if there is an automatic shut off if the filter has not been cleaned. Your air conditioner does not have an automatic shut off, if the filter has not been cleaned. Please start by cleaning the filter. You can do this easily with the following instructions:
The air filter should be checked at least once a month to see if cleaning is necessary. Trapped particles in the filter can build up and cause an accumulation of frost on the cooling coils.

    1)Push the vent handle to the Vent Closed position (where applicable).
    2)Open the front panel.
    3)Grasp the filter by the center and pull up and out.
    4)Wash the filter using liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Rinse filter thoroughly. Gently shake excess water from the filter. Be sure filter is thoroughly dry before replacing
    5)Or instead of washing, you may vacuum the filter clean.

    Also, be sure your 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. 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. Do not run your air conditioner without outside protective cover in place. This could result in mechanical damage within your air conditioner. Do not use an extension cord or an adapter plug.

    The power supply cord contains a current device that senses damage to the power cord. To test
    your power supply cord do the following:

      1)Plug in your Air Conditioner.
      2)The power supply cord will have TWO buttons on the plug head. Press the TEST button. You will notice a click as the RESET button pops out.
      3)Press the RESET button. Again you will notice a click as the button engages.
      4)The power supply cord is now supplying electricity to the unit. 4)

      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-

Power pack broken

NO, Heat means resistance, Unless it is suppose to heat up, your risking a fire hazard. Check for loose connections. Some warmth may be normal, but if you can't hold in your hand, throw in trash.

Power cord went bad...i need a new one....where do i get this?

Unfortunately, Windchaser has been out of business for about 6+ months and replacement parts are like looking for a needle in a haystack. However, I suspect that a small appliance repair shop can help you. As they stock or can order interchangeable cords for appliances like yours. If you plan on this being a DIY project, write down the color coding of the wires of your defective cord and where they are connected, before disconnecting it. This will save a lot of head scratching, when you install the new cord.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Unit Changes Speed While Running

It may be slowing when the compressor starts, you may want to check the outlet it's plugged in to.

Won't power on

Several things could cause the dehumidifier to not turn on. It could be the switch itself, or the power cord, or some internal component. If you have a multimeter, you can take the unit apart and test the switch and the power cord.

Also make sure the outlet is getting power and no circuit breaker has been tripped.

No Power

Only if ground wire had tuch something that was hot. Does your unit have a ground fault plug. If so reset plug. Sometimes thay go bad if you have had a storm in the area.

HI, you will need to check the terminal block. this is where the power cord runs to on the back side of the unit. make sure it is not lose or worn. you may have to disassemble the unit to expose the terminal block in this case. the power cord wires will spit into three or four little wires and, they will either be soldered or screwed on the block. make sure these wires are secure and not ripped or worn.

Now, if the terminal block is in good condition, this will confirm power board failuer and, in this case, you will need to replace the board supply board .

Dehumidifier keeps shutting itself off.

For some reason it is overheating and shutting itself off. There is a law that all electronics are supposed to have a point to where it automatically shuts off if it gets too hot from a malfunction or loose connection in the circuit board. It is to protect the consumer. You either need to take it to a tech or get rid of it. Get a new one.
