Question about Frigidaire FAC105P1A Window Air Conditioner

2 Answers

I have a Frigidaire FAC105P1A 10,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner that is causing my surge protector to overheat and then shut off. After plugging it in, after the compressor is on for 5 or 6 minutes the same thing happens. Do you know what might be causing this?

Possible that your evap. coil is dirty and since the air flow is restricted because of the dirt the unit over amps. Once it starts to pull more amps than required the plug trips. Also the plug itself could be going bad which has happened to me before. Good Luck

If you are plugged into a secondary surge protection device you should remove it as the AC unit contains it's own protection on the plug. You would need a pretty heavy duty surge protector.

Is there any kinds of problems with this air conditioner


Here are some reviews and questions that have already been asked on Fixya. any appliance that is only used for a few months of the year and then rests for months is going to exhibit some problems eventually. Usually just a matter of getting an AC engineer to add some more refrigerant gas.

    Good Morning Friend,

    I understand you want to replace the compressor capacitor on your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAC105P1A. Typically, this is not a do it yourself repair, as there are no step by step manuals. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They have been trained on your particular appliance and should be able to replace the compressor capacitor with ease. Hope this is helpful.

    Why is my ac window unit not cooling as well as it use to? .


    Good Afternoon Friend,

    I understand your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAC105P1A, is not cooling as well as it used to. Please try cleaning the air filter as well as the cabinet.

    Air Filter Cleaning:

    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.

    • Push the vent handle to the Vent Closed position (where applicable).
    • Open the front panel.
    • Grasp the filter by the center and pull up and out.
    • 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.
    • Or, instead of washing you may vacuum the filter clean.


    Cabinet Cleaning:

    • Be sure to unplug the air conditioner to prevent shock or fire hazard. The cabinet and front may be dusted with an oil-free cloth or washed with a cloth dampened in a solution of warm water and mild liquid dishwashing detergent. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry.
    • Never use harsh cleaners, wax or polish on the cabinet front.
    • Be sure to wring excess water from the cloth before wiping around the controls. Excess water in or around the controls may cause damage to the air conditioner.
    • Plug in air conditioner.

    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.

    Frigidaire FRA 155MT1 melted the extension cord and surge protector


    You must use a heavy duty power cord with this unit as it draws alot of amerage. Most regular extension cords csnnot handle the amperage and overheat or melt.

    FAC105P1A spitting water


    Easy fix. reposition the unit to where is tilts slightly downwards in the rear so that the water will flow out the back instead of inside. NEVER drill any holes in a window unit.

    Debi, it;s not unusual for an AC unit to turn ON & OFF. Once it reaches the temperature that you have it set ON and holds the temperature for 4 or 5 minutes, it will shut OFF until the room temperature rises above it. Be sure all the doors and windows are closed and no hot air is infiltrating the area.

    Also, a 10,000 BTU air conditioner is not designed to handle a large area. Generally, 10,000 BTU's will handle about 3200 Cubic Feet (20' x 20' x 8' = 3200 sq ft) or simply put, 400 square feet. Your A/C unit may be undersized for the area you're trying to cool.

    Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

    Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. One thing I can suggest is try plugging the air conditioner into a surge protector.
