Question about Frigidaire 12,000 BTU Compact II Room Air Conditioner, FAC122P1
1) my frigidaire fac127p1a 12000 btu, compressor will cool for a minute and then turn off, it keeps repeating this procees all while the fan still runs to par? 2) does the machiene need its own dedicated circuit?
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.
