This sounds like a split system and not a window unit ? First check the outside unit known as the condenser and make sure it is running correctly by --- Check that fan is running on outdoor unit and listen to see if the compressor is running. If neither of these are running then it can be a loss of control voltage to the contactor, bad contactor or even bad capacitor. If nothing is running then turn off the power by using diconnect next to unit....then remove the side or corner panel that has access to the control compartment . Visually check that the contactor is pulled in so that the center section is pulled in to make a complete contact across the terminals for power to flow... look at capacitor and see if it is swollen on the top and if it is swollen then it must be replaced with exact matching numbers from an electrical parts or motor dealer. If everything still looks ok then you will need to contact a local company to troubleshoot the unit further.

    Well now you know more than you err wanted to but the concept is the same. Have you solved your window unit problem and if not give me some more details if possible. Like sounds and how old the unit is etc.

Frigidaire AC window unit, model fam185r2a (18,500 BTU) only cools for a few minutes before it cycles off and just fan blows. Then a few min later cool air cycles back on. Is this a thermostat issue?


The window units normally have a sensor thats attached to the front of the indoor coil. This controls the thermostat. I usually pull this sensor away from the coil because it stops cooling before the room is cool. It is attached to the cold coil so it senses the coil temp, not the room temp. You can normally see it when you remove the air filter. Don't break it! It may be a wire or small copper tube

WILL ONLY BLOW COOL AIR.ALSO SHOULD FAN OUTSIDE BE TURNING ALL THE TIME WHEN IN USE


It is important to set a normal temperature on the AC as a lower setting will make the outside unit to keep working so as to get to the lower temperature.So unless the temperature is reached it will not cut off.
Ideally choose a ramge of 25-27 *C for the room as the normal room temp ideal for humans is 28*C.

Fan blows room temp air, I can hear the AC kick in but it only runs for about 30sec to 1min before cutting out and making a sputtering sound that shakes the whole unit. Then it just goes back to blowing...


check you condenser fan motor make sure it turns on, if ok you must clean the fins on the outside unit,with a water hose , make sure you turn power off first before taking a water hose to unit

My ac unit is working but the room is not reaching the desire


Is the condenser outside unit working. (Evaporator is inside the home.) If so you may be low on refrigerant. Have a qualified technician test it.

Ruud Heat Pump blows room temp on Heat and AC setting


A "Heat-Pump" is also known as a reverse cycle air conditioner, this means on heat the outdoor unit acts like the indoor section and vice versa. So in all probability you need to have it leak checked and recharged.
