    they are very thin black speaker like wires.
    they are coming out the left side of the control panel
    if I place them back into the hole where the clip went,it makes the cool light come on and it works as it normally did.
    There is no sparking or arching.
    Is this very dangerous.
    I have a couple of pics that ive taken of them,if there is a way to send them to you.
    Any advice or information that you could share with me on repairing this problem,would be greatly appreciated

    What color where the wires and how small? They could possibly have been from a temperature sensor.

I need a wiring diagram for a ge window air conditioner

Need model number to try and find you one. Older ge air conditioners had the diagram glued to the inside of the outer case. Newer ones had a sheet of paper folded up and stuck near the control panel sometimes in a plastic envelope.

GE air conditioner AGW12AJG1. If you take off the front, there is a black wire hanging, one end detached. What is it and where does it attach?

It could be the air sensor. Its supposed to be clipped into a fitting on the evaporator behind one of the filters. have a look for a plastic frame or clip on the evaporator where it can fit on. (The evaporator is the aluminium coil directly behind the filters) The air sensor wire is generally pretty thin with a small bulb or lump on the end of the wire. this is the sensor which "reads" the air temperature.

Air Conditioner was working fine last summer but outside fna not working. Not hearing any sound at all. I can move the fan amanually and it seems fine. There is an electrical box next to the main...

There is a relay in the outside unit. Check for 24 volts a/c at the two wires coming from the furnace. also there may be a mouse nest in the control comartment where the relay is and they tend to chew up wiring insulation and sometimes wires get disconnected .

Air conditoner eelctronic temp setting goes up on its own as if Im pressing the button, then the controls stop working for 10 minutes

I had this happen on a Maytag unit. Condensation was getting behind the control panel, causing the buttons to short out and changing the temp. unscrew the front cover from the unit and carefully pop the tabs loose from the edges and remove the front plastic cover. then look around the control panel area and see if there is any moisture. if so, you will have to find out why it is wet (probably high air humidity). you could try stuffing some rags around the control panel and see if that keeps it dry. if its not wet around there, then you have a short somewhere, or your remote (if you have one) is malfunctioning.

I just fixed this on mine one minute ago.

Take off the front panel.
You will see a black wire held onto the heat fins by a plastic clip.
This is the thermocouple that measures temperature.
Mine became unplugged from the circuit board and plugging it back in fixed the problem.

The wire goes into a steel box.
take off the screws on the bottom of the box, grab it by the lowed left corner and bend the metal up as far as you can.

The wire plugs into a small white connector on the circuit board.
plug it back in, bend the metal back down, screw it in, replace the cover, and you should be good to go.

GE zoneline heat not working

You need to have some one check the continuity of the thermal fuses at the plug where it plugs into the side of the control box. It's a two pin plastic white plug with black fabric covered wires coming out of the plug, you should have about (0) resistance or maybe 1 ohm. If you have no reading at all you will have to pull the heating coils out. Not a big job but, the unit must be removed from the wall as you have to take off the long top metal plate. Remember you do this only if you have to get to the coils. You can get the the plastic plug with out removing the unit but unplugging the plastic plug this may be a little tough but, you can do it.
Make sure you pull the Power plug out of the unit or out of the wall before testing for continuity.
I hope this helps. I put a picture below. It's the only one I have. On the right of the unit under the control panel there is a metal box you can see the front if it in the picture. Most units have this box on the right side. On the left side of the box are the plugs for heat, fan and Thermal fuses.
There maybe another plug with yellow wires. the plug with the 2 black wires is the one you want. Squeeze the side of the plug to unlock the plug then just pull out and test.
