SOURCE: I have a frigidaire window air conditioner

I assume that you are speaking of the high pressure cut-out switch, (usually has a red button) if that is the switch then you need to remove the unit from the window, take it to the car wash and clean the condenser coil. If you are speaking about the GFCI located in the cord, it could be the cord itself or you have a componenet shorted to ground tha needs repair

SOURCE: admrial air conditioner keeps tripping it's plug

Hi, you either have a short in a componant or it may be that the outdoor coil is dirty and will need to be washed out with your garden hose. If it trips but you are able to reset it and it will run for awhile, its a good sign the condenser coil may be plugged causing high head pressure. If it trips and you try and reset it but can't, you have a dead short in a control part, motor, compressor, or what. Try washing this coil but be careful not to bend the aluminum fins as this will make it worse. Please let me know if this solves the problem or not, and if not we can go into it deeper.
Sincerely,

Ac unit keeps tripping the reset button


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# LRA074AT7, which keeps tripping the reset button. I see that it will start up and then trips the reset button after a minute or two. First, be sure the electrical service is adequate for the model you have chosen. This information can be found on the serial plate, which is located on the side of the cabinet and behind the grille. Secondly, be sure the air conditioner is properly grounded. To minimize shock and fire hazards, proper grounding is important. The power cord is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug for protection against shock hazards. Lastly, your air conditioner must be used in a properly grounded wall receptacle. If the wall receptacle you intend to use is not adequately grounded or protected by a time delay fuse or circuit breaker, have a qualified electrician install the proper receptacle. 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.

-Best Regards-

We have a ESA406K-L Haier 6000 btu and the reset button keeps tripping are air conditioner will not turn on at all.


Is this reset on the plug? if so its likely bad, bypass and test, if it works get another end or wire to a fused disconnect which would be jn place of, unorthodox, but safe.

My a/c unit keeps tripping when i plug it in. i've tried to hit the reset button on the plug but doesnt do anything. i unplug and plug back into outlet and it trips again. what can i do to fix it?


Hi,
There is nothing you can do to fix it... the compressor is trying to start and cannot so it trips the plug. The plug trips to protect the house circuit from being overloaded and causing a fire.
Getting the compressor replaced is cost prohibitive, it is cheaper to buy a new unit.

The reset on the plug keeps tripping. Why?


For it to continually trip, there is some sort of short either in the AC Unit or the outlet it's plugged into is damaged or faulty. If you can, plug the unit into another outlet, on a different circuit. If it continually trips again, the fault is in the AC unit. In which case, contact Delonghi Technical Service. 800-322-3848.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

The breaker in the plug keeps tripping.  I have tried a different outlet and that doesn't fix the problem


2 things one) check to see that you have suffecent air flow through the coils , in other words make sure the coils are free from dirt and debris should be shiny and new. Any flow blockage causes the plug to trip due to the amount of ampherage being pulled because of blockage. 2) Gfi switch hads gone bad in that cause purchase another plug.

Power cord


The unit may be drawing more current than the outlet can withstand. Also check to see if the chord is secured and properly installed. The outlet itself may have a loose wire so check to make sure it's good. Otherwise it could simply be the reset switch is burnt out and will keep tripping no matter what. Replace if neccessary. Hope this helped.

Air conditioner breaker on plug keeps tripping


The instruction manual says:
If the safety device incorporated in the plug trips and cuts off the power supply, check that the power cable and plug are not damaged. If the power cable is undamaged, to restore operation press the RESET button.   To verify the correct operation of the plug, press the TEST button periodically and make sure the appliance disconnects.  If this is not the case, contact the service center. To restore operation, press the RESET button.
