Faulty safety power cord...

I have a Haier window unit that is about a year old. During a power surge the safety power cord tripped and will not reset. I know the unit still works because when I hold down the reset button on the cord the unit will operate normally. Is there anyway to replace or bypass this saftey device without creating a fire hazard?

You can by-pass it by simply connecting the 2 wires together. Obviously the safety it is supposed to protect you from will not work, but it can get you by instill a replacement can be found. It seems like the surge burnt the coil out on the switch. If you are conscious of the heater and what its going ,you should be safe. They made these things a long time without a trip switch on the cord. It just requires some common sense.

I have an Amana PTAC ac 15000 BTU that has stopped, the power cord keeps tripping. I removed the power cord and plugged it in to the socket and the breaker did not trip, any clues. I'm thinking of jus


I think you've gotton your moneys worth with ten trouble free years. The power cords safety device is a bit more sensitive to a high resistive short to ground than your breaker is. I would suggest that there is exactly that: a high resistive short to ground within the cabinet of the PTAC. It has been years since I have been on a PTAC call and am unable to suggest specifics. But if you are competent and capable of using a DVOM, open up the unit and begin a systematic approach of determining the problem.

The FIRST thing I'd do is check the motor and the compressor with a digital megohmeter. Sometimes their problem will only show up with this sensitive device.

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.

Our power shut off. AC window unit was on. When power came back on, AC said "E1" Unit model no. HWR08XC7


The "E1" Code indicates a security protection shut down code. Based o what you said about the power outage and the restoration of power, I assume the unit was left ON during the power out and restoration of power. A power surge more than likely caused the error code.

Hopefully irreparable did occur and you can get the electronics to reset by doing the following:

Turn the ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes. After that time has elapsed plug the unit in and turn the ON/OFF Switch to ON. Hopefully, the electronics reset & reverted back to the original factory settings and the error code has disappeared and you can set the controls as you like. If that didn't happen, you should contact Haier Customer Support 1-877-337-3639, as they can tell you which circuit was effected. From there, you can determine if a repair is warranted.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Power surge/Control Panel


The control board blew. You will need to replace the control board on your unit and everything will work correctly again. When a power surge happens it will blow the weakest link, and if your system is not on a protected outlet then the weakest link is your control board.

Haier AC Won't start


I had the same problem with a different model. I tested the cord, it worked, but still would not turn on. Well, after two days my friend and I decided we would try to replace the battery in the remote---it worked! Try your remote battery.

Unit will not turn on when Electric current is on


There is no power to the unit, the power is fed from a spur switch which is usually placed next to the unit, it comes with a fuse. The spur switch is also fed from the MCB or the consumer unit which contains all the fuses supplying power to the appliances in the house.
Usually they are clearly marked, look for the one that supplies power to the air conditioner and check whether the circuit breaker is ON or OFF. If is off switch it on and if the breaker stays on, you have power and you can try switching on your unit and hopefully if there is no fault on the unit it should start up.
On the other hand if the circuit breaker doesn't stays on and it trips back automatically, am afriad there is an earth fault in the unit you need to call an experct to come and check the unit.
If the Breker stays on but the unit does not power up, check the fuse in the switch spur and if you dont have the test instrument to check the fuse, just replace it with a new one with the same amps rating that you are 100% sure that its working.Remember to press the reset button which is the safety device between the power cord and the unit.
Good luck.

My window unit fell out of the window and hung by the power cord that was still plugged into the wall. I was able to grab the cord and pull it back up. I reattached the power cord and now every time i turn...


Its most likely is not the switch. It is most likely the cord though. Due to the excess strain on the cord it has probably cut through the rubber coating on the wire and connected to the frame and grounded the hot lead. Fix the cord and you may have it handled.
