Re: a/c runs 1-2 hours then will not go back on for a day
Sounds like the unit is shutting of on thermal protection. Try removing it from the sleeve and take it outside. Wash it out good with a garden hose. If the problem persists, there is likely a problem with the refrigerant.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I understand you want to know how to turn off the power save mode for your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FFRE12L3Q1. Your appliance will run in energy saver(econ) mode when used for the first time. In this mode, the fan will continue to run for 1 minute after the compressor shuts off. The fan then cycles on for 20 seconds at 10 minute intervals until the room temperature is above the set temperature, at which time the compressor turns back on. You will be able to turn the energy save mode off by selecting your temperature as well as your fan speed. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.
This could be two things 1- a power saving mode in the TV... go into settings on the TV, look for either "power save settings" or "energy star settings" go in and turn that off. 2- it could be a screen saving mode because the TV has lost signal...some HDDVR receivers such as Direct TV DVR etc...have their own power saving mode, after a couple our of inactivity, they turn off, which kills the signal to the TV...so the TV shuts down because it has no signal coming to it.... if that is the case, you need to go into the settings on your cable/satellite settings and also look for a "power save mode" or "energy star saving", and turn that off.
After reading over the Owner's Manual for your unit, I wonder if you are operating it in the Cool & Dry Mode. If that's the case, the dehumidifier is in operation, which would account for having to drain the unit every 2 to 3 hours. Ideally, the Cool and Dry Mode should only be operated for about an hour, when the unit is first started . Removing the humidity will allow the AC function to cool more effectively. But, it is not necessary for it to remain in Cool & Dry mode all the time. Because the AC itself unit will remove some humidity too.
Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the issue of having to drain the unit every 2 to 3 hours
If this is a window or wall unit. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF. Unplug the unit and wait 12-15 minutes. Then, plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the controls on anything except energy saver. If the unit then operates as it should, let it run for at least an hour before switching it to Energy Saver Mode. If that's the way you want to operate it. If it doesn't restart and run like it should or it shuts OFF on Energy Saver Mode, there is a problem with one of the setting sensors and needs to be replaced.
Also, while you have the unit unplugged, check the outlet to make sure it's still active. You can do this by plugging in a lamp. If the lamp doesn't work, the circuit breaker for that outlet has been tripped in your home's circuit breaker panel and needs to be reset. When you plug the AC unit back in and it trips the breaker again, there is an electrical short or overload in the AC Unit.
Please keep in mind everything I suggested is based on your AC being a 120 volt window or wall unit.
Unplugging the unit is not required. Just turn it off with the control. Every time you turn it iff for an extended period of time and turn in it back on it has to pull temperature down which will use more energy than mornal for a short period. If it is being left off for more than a day you should see some savings but just turning it down to a warmer termperature (say a 1 or 2) then turning it back up to normal (say 3 to 5) will result in the same of not more savings (unless you are leaving it iff for more than two days at a time) and it will recover temperature faster (about 4 hours vs 8 hours). This will not harm the appliance over time.
if there is definite frost which has some depth to it, you may have a bad defrost timer. look for the timer usually inside kick plate in the front of unit. it'where you clean the condenser coils. with a flat head screwdriver or your finger turn the knob until the unit shuts off. if the fridge doesn't come on in 1/2 hour you have a bad timer motor and buy a defrost timer. if the unit comes on in 20 minutes or so the timer is good and you have to look elseware possibly the condenser coils and fan which are near the bottom clean coils anyway because it's good practice to keep them clean to save energy. the fan either works or it doesn't make sure refridgerator is running to check this. anything else you have to defrost the evaporater in the back wall of freezerthis could take some time but after it's defrosted turn timer to off a see if the heater is red in color if not then with a multi meter with the unit unplugged test across heater for continuity on heater . klixon and hi-temp cut out. good luck. if you are not feeling safe call a repairman
when the machine goes into energy save mode it will still receive faxes. (energy save is a low power mode the copier is still on and can accept faxes, print jobs and copy jobs)
however if the machine goes to auto shut off it will not. (auto shut off will after a set amount of time turn the power switch on the copier to the off position and the copier can not be used until it is turned back on.)
you need to turn the copier off, hold down 0 & 8 and turn on then type in 206 press start, key in 20 press set then turn the copier off and back on. this will make sure that auto power off is not enabled.
Dynamic mode will give you a brighter picture. The energy saving mode runs the lamp at a more efficient level that saves energy at the cost of a slightly darker picture. Based upon your description, I'd guess that the lamp is nearing the end of its useful life. Plan on changing the lamp soon. When you do so, place the set back to standard mode and energy saving.
