Question about Goldstar M1003R Air Conditioner
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi, did the surge /protectors/breakers on the cord reset? If they tried to reset then cut off again, you have a short in a component. Check the breaker that supplies the units wall plug to see if it may be tripped. If it is, it will be in the mid position and turn it off hard, and right back on hard. Hopefully it will hold. Do this, if the breaker is tripped, reset it and if it trips again, go to the a/c and unplug it. Now, reset it and it will hold. If you have a part, motor, compressor, or what ever is shorted to ground, when you plug it in and turn it on it should trip the cord and maybe the breaker to. Check these things I have told you and see what happens. If the unit does start up and start to cool, it overloaded for some reason. A part getting ready to go out, drawing to many amps and tripping cord or breaker. You will need to try and service some of it if it is coming on. Go outside and take your garden hose and give the outdoor coil a good washing. It builds up dirt and will cause high head pressures in the unit which in turn will cause it to overload and shut off everything. Clean it well. Inside, make sure the filter is clean behind the cover on the front and the evaporator coil is also clean. Dirt is a killer of these units and should be serviced at least once a year before it gets hot out side. So, do these things, leave the cord unplugged when washing out side, and we can go from there. If it starts to work good after you clean and service it, that was your problem, but keep me posted on this. I need to no the out come. We can take other steps if needed. Please be kind when you rate me for my help, if you feel I was of help. I will be here to help you more if needed.

I would check the circuit breaker to the AC.
A good way to check it - is to see if it's 'tripped' into the off position.
If it is - just flip the breaker down and then back up to the "on" position and try the AC.
If the it 'trips' again or is still not working - then plug another 110 volt appliance (i.e. a hair dryer) into the same outlet and see if it works - if the hair dryer works then you know you have a problem with the AC and will need a Service Tech to troubleshoot it for you.
Note: if you find the breaker is 'tripped' and you reset it and the AC works fine - I would just keep an eye on it for awhile - because even though it's "not" uncommon for a breaker to trip once in awhile - it is uncommon for it to keep tripping.
