Question about Whirlpool ACQ158XP Wall/Window Air Conditioner

18000 btu window unit not cooling

Thermostat appears fine, motor runs fine but only get fan air. Could the capacitor, I think anyway, be the problem? It has numerous wires connected to it.

My frigidaire AC starts cooling fine but stops blowing cold air after few minutes and it does not cool at all. I haved turned it off and re-started it and it does the same thing


The compressor is being prematurely turned off. That explains why the cooling stops after a few moments. Either the thermostat is responsible or the electronics working with the therm are responsible for the anomaly.

Freon level is fine because it does cool when compressor is running. U might also want to check the start/run capacitor. That sucker starts the motor and keeps it running after the start. If the run section goes bad the motor will usually stop after it starts.

Frigidaire AC window unit, model fam185r2a (18,500 BTU) only cools for a few minutes before it cycles off and just fan blows. Then a few min later cool air cycles back on. Is this a thermostat issue?


The window units normally have a sensor thats attached to the front of the indoor coil. This controls the thermostat. I usually pull this sensor away from the coil because it stops cooling before the room is cool. It is attached to the cold coil so it senses the coil temp, not the room temp. You can normally see it when you remove the air filter. Don't break it! It may be a wire or small copper tube

My guess is compressor motor overtemp cutout. So why is the motor overheating? Possibles: Needs bearing oil, bad bearings, compressor too much pressure, overfull with freon, mechanical friction, cooling fan not turning.

Suggest set thermostat to demand less cooling, see if compressor stays on longer.

Installed 18000 btu split system heat pump and condensing unit is freezing up in cold weather 15 degrees out side air.


Actuall, out door fan sucks fresh air to cool the condensor when it's on "Cool" mode. If it is in " Heat mode' if the fan should run only on pressure build up. May be pressure switch is faulty.
Melt the ice with Torch gun, and check again.

Purchased a fedders a/c 18000 unit still under warranty. called the 800# they said company had filed bankruptcy and were not responsible for repairs. 350$ mistake. Fan runs too slow for unit to kick in....


Check the capacitor for the fan motor. You can do that with a multimeter with the capacitor test function or if the capacitor looks swollen then it is probably bad. Also, make sure the fan rotates freely by hand. Let me know if you need more help.

You should be able to turn the fan motor freely by hand. If there is any resistance or the noise turning it by hand, then the fan motor is definitely bad. Is it a wall thermostat unit or manual controls? Wall thermostat, you can use a jumper wire from the 12+ terminal of the thermostat to the HG terminal and the fan should come on, if not, then the motor is bad.

RV air conditioner. Compressor running, fan stops before cool


The fan motor is getting hot and going off on the internal overload in the motor.
This is caused by either a low voltage, a bad capacitor, or tight or dry bearings in the motor.
To check the bearings turn the power off to the unit, then spin the fan blade if it spins freely then the bearings are ok.
To check the capacitor you will need some kind of tester or you can buy a capacitor and replace it, that's what a lot of people do. They usually don't cost very much.
To check the voltage you will need a voltmeter and measure the volts at the unit.
