My whirlpool window a/c unit runs part of the time. Problem seems to be in the ground fault plug which has test/reset button. This is 220v, 25000 BTU sytem. Would it hurt to take off the ground fault plug and connect regular 220 plug

SOURCE: LG 250 Volt, 18000 btu window air conditioner.

Take cover off of electrical compartment, locate power on off switch, see if you have proper voltage before and after switch, if power is present locate thermostat, check the same way, also look for burnt wiring, Good luck.

SOURCE: AC unit LWHD 1800R won't turn on & test/reset does not respond.

Reverse the wires in the receptacle ,not the ground,this is most likely the problem the way the circuit is set up in the ac unit.Let me know if this helps.

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!

My LER 7648PQ0 whirlpool dryer doesn't heat but motor runs and programmer seems to run right. What is the problem ? I use an 220 V => 110 v transformer. How can I connect electrical wires at the back...


is your dryer 110v or 220v? If everything works except the heating element the element is bad or the one time fuse has popped it has two wires on it and one runs to the heating element or the hi temp switch on the heating element the fuse will be a small disc type when removed do not mistake the hi temp switch it is located on the element housing the one time fuse is ususally located on the dryer its self all of this is accessed on the back of the dryer under the back panel. good luck. (ground and common are the same in homes in mobile homes they are seperate and the dryers are 4 wire plugs L1 ,L2,neutral and ground).

When push the start button it will run for a minute and then beep the display window will read f 11


The MCU motor control unit is at fault.
Unplug the washer for 60 seconds.
Plug it back in and try again.
If the fault reoccurs,replace the MCU.

Test procedure for elements and thermostat


Remove upper and lower access panels
in upper access, use voltage tester to test voltage of on the uppermost terminals above the red reset button. should be ~220V between terminals (110 to ground)
If not: breaker off or bad,
If 220V proceed:
Test the two terminals immediately below this reset button should be 220V
If not: reset tripped or bad
If 220V present, proceed.
Turn off breaker to heater.

Use ohm meter or continuity tester.
test resistance across upper element terminals -should be 10 to15 ohms
check between each terminal and ground -should be open circuit .
If not replace element
Repeat for lower element.

test across lower element thermostat should be no resistance when stat turned up so it clicks on.
(To test that lower stat turns off, allow tank to heat up completely before conducting this test) Turn sta temp down so it clicks off then test across stat terminals -should be open circuit

The upper thermostat is a 3 way switch
The simplest way to test it is to turn the power back on turn the upper stat all the way up so it clicks on and use voltage tester across the UPPER element terminals, should be ~220V
Now turn the upper stat down so it clicks off- check upper element should be 0 V between upper element terminals -(Caution ! terminals will still be live 110V to ground)
The upper stat has now sent power to lower stat.
Turn lower stat up so it clicks on, check Voltage across lower element -should be ~220V turn lower stat down so clicks off, should be 0 V across lower element terminals.

NOTE If tank is completely cold the upper stat will not switch off and wont send power to lower stat.
If lower tank is cold lower stat may not click off even when turned down.
normal stat setting is 125 to 130
The hotter you you set the stat, the faster your tank corrodes.

My jets wont turn on


All the electric power source to all jacuzzi tubs all required to be protected by a "ground fault" device. Have you noticed special wall receptacles in your kitchen and bathroom that have 'test' and 'reset' buttons? There may be a receptacle (or something that looks like a receptacle but without any slots for plugs) near the tub. Push the reset button. If the pump for the tub has an access panel, the device may be behind the panel. And last, the circuit breaker in the main electrical panel may be a ground fault type and needs reset there. Good Luck
