Why incessant beeping?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FRA124HT2, begins with a constant beeping, and changes the modes itself, about every 30 minutes. I also see that it ends up on a different setting each time it does this. I suggest resetting your air conditioning, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. Bring power back to it and turn it on. 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 washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

How many tons is my unit?


divide your btu rating by 12000. (1 ton = 12000 btu)
For example - a 24,000 BTU Air Conditioner is a 2 ton unit. 24000 divided by 12000 = 2
A 18000 btu air condtioner is a 1 1/2 ton unit 18000 divided by 12000 = 1 1/2
you can find out your btu rating by looking on the tag on your unit.

My landlord installed this brand new out of the box. Our apt is 900 sq ft tops. This unit can't even cool down our living room and kitchen. If the whole 2 bedroom apt is 900 sq ft, you can imagine how...


The AC your landlord installed is rated at 8000 btu which is way too small for 900 sq ft. You need at least a 15000 Btu Air conditioner and a 'well insulated' house to be cool.
A good rule of thumb in the AC business says you need 1 ton (12000 btu) of Air conditioning for every 600 sq feet (if the house is well insulated) - if not - then you will need 1 ton (12000 btu) for every 400 sq feet.
So, if you have 900 sq feet and the house is well insulated you should have at least a 15000 btu unit.
If it's not well insulated you will need 24,000 btu.

I just purchased a souleus 12000 btu portable air conditioner. The unit works fine but keeps tripping the circuit breaker in my apartment. What causes this and can it be fixed or is it just the wiring in...


First, you need to determine what, besides the Souleus, is on that electrical circuit, and whether the circuit is 15 or 20 amp.

12,000 BTU A/C's tend to pull 10-12 amps, and they can peak just under 15 when the compressor starts. So a new, right off the shelf unit will max out a 15amp circuit. An older model with a worn out starting cap will demand even more amps at compresser startup.

Frigidaire fac127p1a 12000 btu compressor


The compressor is probably going out on either a pressure related or heat related overload. Both are a result of low refrigerant. There may be a low pressure safety swich that protects the compressor. Otherwise it may be an internal thermal overload that is tripping. It resets itself and comes back on. The thermal overload heats up and shuts off the compressor to protect it from too much heat which is gernerated by not enough refrigerant in the system to keep the compressor cool. It may be cheaper to replace the unit than have someone try and fix it. It is pretty time consuming and you cannot try it yourself unless you have an EPA Certificate to buy the refrigerant. Check with your local appliance repair man to see if he will tackle it.
