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.
Sincerely,

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.

good luck!

Why am I not getting cold air


See if compressor is running. I would replace the contactor since it controls fan and compressor.

What maintance do goldstar conditions need? My cooler is not working as well and I cleaned the front filter. I'm not sure what window conditioner I have.


these units need to be cleaned every few years. so take it outside, get your garden hose; and clean the coils on both sides. front an back coils need to be clean. a coil cleaner should be used but good water presure should do fine. try not to get switches to wet. or cover them first. spray coils clean. let dry in the sun. tilt unit to get most water out then blow dry with a fan or just wait till its dry it will work like new after your done.good luck

The unit just stopped working and will not turn on


I'm assuming 'nothing' comes on when you try to run the AC unit. If the fan runs but the AC does not cool then ignore the below info, but if "nothing comes on" then proceed with the below info.

If the breakers are not tripped and you've tried other outlets (on different breakers) I would suspect a faulty switch. You can replace the switch ( If it's not computerized). First unplug the unit from the wall and locate the switch (it will be the one that has the knob that controls "fan, Hi Cool, Lo Cool, etc etc.) then remove the switch - 'being careful to mark all the wires in such a manner you can replace them on the new switch, exactly like they came off the old one.'

Then if you take the switch to an appliance shop and can find/order the 'exact' same switch (or at least a comparable replacement with the same connections as the old one) you could re-install it on the unit, connect your wires back up to the switch and plug it back into the outlet and see if that was your problem.

good luck!

Have 5000BTU Goldstar window unit. Water dripping


the bottom of the case from the outside usually has a "divot" in it below the coil to allow flow from the hose that runs across the bottom of the unit, try pressuring up and "blowing out" any obstruction, if this does not work then you may have to disassemble the unit and verify the drainpan is not cracked below the indoor coil (rare)

This goldstar air conditioner model is WG2405RY7 It has an energy saver, but the unit just keeps running and won't shut off, everything else works.


Doe's the temp reach the set point? If not then it will run until it doe's. If you set the stat warmer and the fan keeps running after compressor shuts off check to make sure it is in power saver mode. Most AC units keep more even temp when fan is left on.

F1, F2, and F3 are the strength of the fan blowing the air conditioner. F1 circulates the least amount of air, F3 the most. I generally find that if the air conditioner isn't getting the job done on F1, F2 will do it. I typically only use F3 if I just want to circulate air fast in my place for awhile. As far as what is "better" with closed vent or open, that depends on what you want to do. If you are using air conditioning on a hot day, then vent closed is better because it will cool only air circulating in your place. Vent open will allow fresh air in from outside, and if it's a really hot day, the air conditioner might have a harder time cooling off the fresh air than the circulating air inside your place (as it's continually being cooled repeatedly by your air conditioner).
