Question about Frigidaire FAC124 wall/Window Air Conditioner

1 Answer

My frigidaire air conditioner cord got wet while being used and now it will not turn on. the end of the cord has "test" and "reset" buttons on the side of where it plugs in to the wall. the test button does nothing. the reset button does nothing when pressed in all the way but when slowly releasing the button the light for power will come on and blink power to the air conditioner repeatedly every second. nothing will stay on for more than 1/2 of a second and the fan will not start up at all.

Model FAZ12HS2A. When in Heat mode, why does it blow cool air?


Hello J, thanks for your post!

I see that your Frigidaire air conditioner is not emitting the proper air when in heat mode. I would recommend performing a reset on your air conditioner and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord. Once you have removed the power cord, press the reset button and then the test button. You should then be able to plug it back into the wall and start it up. If you continue to have issue with it an electrical component may need to be replaced and I would recommend this be completed by a professional technician. They would have the knowledge on how to properly disassemble the air conditioner without any harm. Good luck! -Matt

My fan speeds on my frigidaire window unit keep changing by itself. Input and advice please!!!


Hello Jordan, thank you for your inquiry!

From my understanding the fan speeds on your Frigidaire air conditioner changes on its own. Do you own a remote with your air conditioner? It could be getting accidentally pressed and that is causing your fan to switch. If you do not have a remote with your air conditioner it could be a potential issue within your control panel or keypad. I would then recommend performing a reset on your air conditioner and you can do that by unplugging the power cord and pressing the reset button. Once the reset button has been pressed you would need to hit the test button and then you should be able to plug it back in. If this does not resolve your issue I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

The cord for this unit got wet, and im fairly sure the fuse inside the cord tripped. It refuses to turn on.


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that the power cord to your Frigidaire air conditioner got wet and you would like to know if you can change the cord with a different brand. Even though the cords may be the same voltage it would not be recommend to interchange the cords. I would suggest contacting your manufacturer for proper replacement parts. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

My Frigidaire AC unit doesn't want to turn onafter plugging it in


Thank you for your inquiry, Eddie!

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire air conditioner is not turning on after you have plugged it in. I have identified a few possibilities of what could be causing the problem with your air conditioner to be the control panel or power cord. You may be able to perform a reset on your air conditioner by unplugging the power cord and pressing the reset button. You should hear a click and then press the test button. Once you plug it in it should start. If your air conditioner does not start I would suggest contacting the manufacturer for any additional assistance. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt

Frigidaire airconditioner compressor keeps running after turning the unit off


Thanks for the post, friend!

I understand that the compressor continues to run after your Frigidaire air conditioner has turned off. From that information it sounds like there could be a possible issue within your control panel or relay. I would recommend a reset on the appliance, to perform a reset unplug the power cord you will see a test button, push that button and you will hear a click. You would then press the reset button you will hear a click again signifying that the appliance has been reset. Then plug your air conditioner back in. If you continue to have an issue with your compressor I would seek assistance from a professional. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

Bought the Frigidaire 6000 BTU Window Room Air Conditioner LRA067AT7 6 months ago and it worked fine until last week, It will not turn on although plugged in and the wall outlet is good. Is there an auto...


Good Morning Luca,

I understand your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# LRA067AT7, will not turn on. I also see that the wall outlet is good, so you are wondering if there is an automatic shut off if the filter has not been cleaned. Your air conditioner does not have an automatic shut off, if the filter has not been cleaned. Please start by cleaning the filter. You can do this easily with the following instructions:
The air filter should be checked at least once a month to see if cleaning is necessary. Trapped particles in the filter can build up and cause an accumulation of frost on the cooling coils.

    1)Push the vent handle to the Vent Closed position (where applicable).
    2)Open the front panel.
    3)Grasp the filter by the center and pull up and out.
    4)Wash the filter using liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Rinse filter thoroughly. Gently shake excess water from the filter. Be sure filter is thoroughly dry before replacing
    5)Or instead of washing, you may vacuum the filter clean.


    Also, be sure your 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. 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. Do not run your air conditioner without outside protective cover in place. This could result in mechanical damage within your air conditioner. Do not use an extension cord or an adapter plug.

    The power supply cord contains a current device that senses damage to the power cord. To test
    your power supply cord do the following:

      1)Plug in your Air Conditioner.
      2)The power supply cord will have TWO buttons on the plug head. Press the TEST button. You will notice a click as the RESET button pops out.
      3)Press the RESET button. Again you will notice a click as the button engages.
      4)The power supply cord is now supplying electricity to the unit. 4)


      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-

Why does the unit beep when I plug it in.


Good Morning Tina,

I understand that your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAM187S2A, beeps and flashes lights when you first plug it in. First, test the power supply cord by doing the following:

1. Plug in your air conditioner.
2. The power supply cord will have TWO buttons on the plug head. Press the TEST button. You will notice a click as the RESET button pops out.
3. Press the RESET button. Again you will notice a click as the button engages.
4. The power supply cord is now supplying electricity to the unit. (On some products this is also indicated by a light on the plug head)

NOTE:
• Do not use this device to turn the unit on or off.
• Always make sure the RESET button is pushed in for correct operation.
• The power supply cord must be replaced if it fails to reset when either the TEST button is pushed, or it cannot be reset. A new one can be obtained from the product manufacturer.
• If power supply cord is damaged, it CANNOT be repaired. It MUST be replaced by one obtained from the product manufacturer.

NOTE: Some plugs have buttons on the top.

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 air conditioner status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-
