Please check the filter. The filter is located behind the front grill. If there is a lot of dust & dirt on the filter, it will reduce the airflow over the coil significantly - causing freeze ups. A filter that is missing will require a thorough cleaning of the coils to remove the dust and dirt, then installing a replacement filter. There are products sold at hardware stores, home improvement centers, etc. designed specifically to clean these coils easily. You should be able to get a replacement filter for the AC from Sears.

If the filter is present and clean - there could be a problem with the refrigerant charge, or other problem. Many times, an AC units of this small size, it is cheaper to buy new than invest in repairing a 3 year old unit.

Please rate this reply if helpful - good luck!

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand the Hi Temperature alarm was going off on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFUS2613LP, and the temperature was room temperature. I also see that you pulled out your appliance and cleaned everything, including the compressor and coils. You turned your refrigerator back on and it froze a cup of water before you went to bed. However, when you woke this morning, your refrigerator was back at room temperature. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why it keeps warming to room temperature. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

You need to clean the filters and coils on this unit so the error code will go away and the unit will work like it should. If it can't get clean air across the coils it will freeze up and not circulate any air. Most common issues are dirty filters and dirty coils that prevent air flow. Is the fan working to blow air? this code could also mean the fan is not working. Check on these and let me know.

Model # 25372055201 When you turn on Air


Hello, clean the evaporator coil with a coil cleaner spray that you can buy at any heating and cooling store, if cleaning the coil does not help looks like the unit has a low refrigerant charge and will need to be recharged. A quick test you can do is measure the air entering the evaporator coil and leaving th evaporator with a thermometer, find the differance, it should be 15-20 degrees on a normal working ac. If it is below 15 the unit is umdercharged.

Air conditioner frezing up.clean filter and air conditioner but still ferzing up


If its doing it over night or in several hours, you need to check the thermostat. Turn it all the way to the warmest setting and listen for the compressor to shut off. If the compressor keeps running at the warmest position your thermostat is shorted. If you do hear your compressor shut off , and the thermostat is working, you are probably low on refrigerant.

Water in air conditioner


A lot of the newer window units design the outside fan to pickup the condensate water and sling it onto the coil. The evaporative effect makes the unit run more efficiently. They ususally don't spit, but if the unit is running well, otherwise, I would't worry about it.
