Question about Frigidaire FAS256N2A Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Bad storm last night. This morning unit will come on but does not cool (no compressor) and fan setting is at the lowest. Will not respond from input either from remote or display board. Could the control board be out? Display board shows no sensor errors.

If you have to jiggle the wires going into the compressor motor to get it going, I would submit that you may very well have a broken wire or otherwise loose connection that is making contact when you jiggle the wires. If all appropriate connections were good, jiggling the wires would/should have no effect. I assume you are jiggling wires AT THE MOTOR input and not elsewhere in the circuitry. After you jiggle the wires and get it started, does it continue to run? or if not, describe more thoroughly what is happening..

Whirlpool refrigerator not cooling after storm


Assuming that both freezer and refrigerator temperatures have risen and the humming sound that you heard was followed by a sudden click more than likely the start device on the compressor has gone bad. This is a common problem with all Whirlpool refrigerators (KitchenAid is Whirlpools top of the line product and suffers the same problem).

Air worked fine all last night and his morning.


if the air comes on for a short time and then turns off for 15-30 minutes, the overload protection inside the compressor is shutting down to protect the compressor. this can be caused by blocked supply or return vents, improper charge, bad valves in the compressor, and a multitude of other things. the problem will have to be corrected first.

AC roof unit stops cooling after rain


No, the units are sealed and the rain should not have affected the system at all. I would remove the outer cover of the unit and access the capacitors. Your start capacitor may be bad. You can visually inspect this and tell if there is a problem. Small black relay on top of capacitor often burns out, if so, replace capacitor and relay. If this looks fine, then we need to start at the thermostat and work our way forward.

Thanks,

Jeff
