    Hi,

    I just installed the frigidare fax054 which was purchased about 2 or 3 years ago. The unit was in storage and was never used until today. After installation the unit was turned on to cool at the 60 degree mark. However it does not seem to be cooling down the room which was at 85 degrees. I wanted to know if there is anything that we need to replace, or if we will be able to fix this ourselves? Thanks for your help.

    Many thanks. The compressor is working, so I believe it's the freon that needs to be changed. Thanks so much.

In the unit there is a Compressor.When you turn the unit On the Compressor kicks On.If the compressor is not starting then this compressor has to be checked.As you said that the unit was not used for 2-3 years then the fault in the compressor can be the issue.
But if the compressor is starting then  the freon /coolant gas has to be checked.In the ac unit there is a gas called freon .The cooling starts due to freon gas.But if this freon gas is got leaked in this 2 years when the unit was not in use then the ac will work but it will not cool.Get the freon gas checked in your unit ,if its low then get it refilled by the local ac repair store.Its a gas refilling bottle which they can easily refill in your ac system.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Hi, it sounds as if your coils are icing up. Turn the thermostat to off and the fan switch to on. Let it run a couple of hours to thaw the coils out. You should feel more air flow as it thaws, you can also change the filters. That needs to be done every 30 days except you have a dust free environment.
Once they are thawed, look at the coils and see if they are cleaning. I would leave the filters out during this process as they are likely to get wet from the thawing coils.If they look good, replace the filter and turn it on and see how it goes. If it ices up again, then you are low on refrigerant.

Take care

    The unit was new and was in storage for a for a couple of years and I just installed it today. Does this have any impact on the unit not cooliing?

    O.k, since you say the unit is new, try changing the filter as i have said earlier. And if the problem still persist after changing the filter, then call in a tech to clean up and service it, that will do...

CWC-1600 cools constantly


More than likely, the thermostat on the unit is going bad. If the coils haven't been cleaned recently, then I suggest that you unplug the unit, clean it well and then cycle it back on. If it continues, then the thermostat that's located within the unit is going bad. Please refer to the owners manual for proper service and maintenance for your unit. https://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/content/pdfs/140265-1.pdf

Portable A/C: Compressor runs intermittently and doesn't cool room


Your issue sounds like either a bad "pressure switch" or that the unit is low on "Freon." Either of these problems will cause the compressor to start and run shortly then compressor cuts off, then and repeats itself.

From your description It really does Not seem to be a "bad board in that unit" because the compressor is starting up, even though the compressor is not staying on long enough to cool said area.

My frigidaire a/c is set 73fhrenheit after running for a time the temp. on the unite drops to 60 degrees by it self what is the problem ?


AC units, no matter if they are big/small, window or big central units. They will only cool the air in the room, or home, to about 15 degrees cooler than the outside air temperature. If you live in Georgia and it is 100?F+ outside, you will be lucky if the unit will reach 80?F even running all day.

My machine runs but it does not gather any water even though I know the humidity in the room is high. The humidity displays 60% room and it will not decrease to 35% set, even though the machine is running...


There are 5 basic, but solvable reasons for what you described. Of these 5 you have already completed 2 of them.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen

I hope this helps you to further troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have Model: DM30A which constantly freezes up even though it is on a three foot high table and the temperature never goes below 60 degrees


The unit freezing up doesn't surprise me at all. If the temp in your room is 60 degrees then the temperature of the air will be around 40 degrees and the coil is about 20 degrees. Your expecting to much, the tempature is to cold to work properly.

I have an LG AC and the lowest temperature setting is 60 degrees


Lowering the temperature setting doesn't change the temperature of the air coming out of the unit it just lets it run until the room temperature gets colder. Check the temp of the air coming out of the unit. If it isn't as cold as it used to be the charge could be low. First though you should make sure the filters are clean and the coils.You should also check the actual room temp. It's also possible the unit doesn't have enough capacity to keep up with the cooling load of the room.

How do I set this unit to cool?


The evaporator is mounted above and on top of the heater unit inside the box. It sounds like this cleaning is the issue if cool air is coming out. Very slow though, right? Good luck and keep me posted please. - Ned

I bought a Lg 11,500 btu air conditioner yesterday at home depot. It has been set on 60 degrees with the fan on high and will only bring my room temp down to 79....it does not feel cool


An 11'500 btu Is appr. 1 ton of cooling capacity or enough to cool approximatly 450 sq ft of floor area. Be sure to read the instructions of course and be sure that all the packaging material was removed that may be restricting airflow. On high you should be able to easily feel the air blowing 10-15 ft from the unit and the air should be dropping about 15- 20 degrees when it exits the unit. So if the room temperature is 85 degrees the air exiting the unit should be around 65 -70. The amount of time it takes to cool the entire room depends on how big the room is and how much and the intensity of the heat infiltrating the room and the number and heat output of appliances and people in the room. Hope this helps you out GL!
