Oh, the compressor motor's borked or overworked and overheating, or its capacitor failed short (perhaps the motor is shutting off from thermal shutdown...but you get to find out whether that's so. Be safe.) Alternately the temperature sensors have gone touchy on you. Once you gently vacuum it clean, try keeping incandecent bulbs in series with the compressor to get an idea of how loaded that thing is as it runs for those 5 minutes or so; the load might change more than you expect, just pay attention.
Hopefully you won't have to replace the compressor or motor; but it's doable if you're a certified technician with like equipment (so you can handle the refrigerant decently.) Most shops will streamline a bunch of similar jobs together to cut the waste and setup time.
Bigger conditioners are so much more efficient than little ones...syndicate the A/C?

SOURCE: Plug gets red hot on A.C. after 1/2 hour running.

Local hardware store would have replacement plugs and yes that would help the situation out. But the problem may lie inside the actual outlet also. So you may want to investigate the problem alittle more unless you have already done so

SOURCE: my fedders ac window unit turns on and gets cold

Make sure you air filter is clean and check you evaporator coil also. If there isn't enough airflow across the coil the head pressure of the compressor will build up causing the compressor motor to heat up and cut off or trip on overpressure. You can buy coil cleaner that doesn't have to be rinsed off.

The cord and plug are very hot when running the ac


Sadly, for now, the only thing you can do, is turn the unit OFF & Unplug it. The fault may be in the AC unit or it could be in the receptacle it's plugged into. If it's an older unit, that was made by Fedders for Maytag, I'd strongly suggest buying a new one. As Fedders has been out of business for several years.\\

Wish I had better news for you.

I have a fedders window ac unit where the compressor will turn on sometimes and others will not. When I shut it down and restart later it usually will run for a while. What is wrong?


You could have dirty coils on the outside of the unit. You can clean them with compressed air, water hose or get a can of a/c coil cleaner. If you get coil cleaner you will still need the hose.

Console does not light up after plugging unit in


Check the power cord for rips of loosness where it enters the unit. if the power cored is fine, this will usually be the result of a power supply board failure. you should replace the power board in this case. the original board is unable to process the AC current at this time.

Heat doesn't work on ac


You need to check if the heat strip is still good on it or that it is receiving power. If its getting power, then the strip is bad.

Fedders Y Chassis Quit Running


Bummer. I bought an AEY08F2G that put out no warm air and very little cool air. Fedders filed chapter 11 in August. They do not honor warranties now, and apparently offer no repair service. I was fortunate that I bought mine from Venting Direct, and the unit was still within the 60 defective return period. They told me that Fedders units are junk. They provided full credit for the unit (plus shipping costs) without requiring that the unit be returned to them. My advice is to toss it. Live and learn.

Fedders Window AC Unit


I would try to start the unit with only the fan running at first. If it stays running then cycle on the compressor and see how it does. If the unit does not operate when compressor is turne on then we have to dig deeper into that.
