Question about Frigidaire Compact Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Thermostat set to low.

In the description from frigidaire's website, it says that my thermostat may be set too low. It say to turn the thing clockwise to a higher number with a screw driver(i think). I have a Frigidaire FAA065P7, 6k BTU through window mounted AC.

I'm thinking that they are talking about the actual thermostat in the inside of the machine casing, because it also says behind the air filter in the description. Since I am pretty darm positive it isn't talking about the one you control manually, I am thinking the one that needs to be adjusted is like the one in a refridgerator. Turn the knob to a higher setting.

Where is this knob(i know it's behind the air filter), so I can turn it to a higher setting?

If your A/C has a digital control panel no screw driver is necessary to reset the temperature.

When turning on, unit cools normally. After compressor cycles off, it doesn't come on again. I have just cleaned the thermostat/sensor thinking this may help, am waiting to see. Thank you..


Compressor may not be turning off due to satisfied temperature, it may be turning off on safety trip such as high/low pressure, current overload. When the thermostat is set to a certain temperature, the compressor cuts off once the temperature has been reached or satisfied, try a lower setting to see if the compressor satisfies the setting demand.
Some thermostats may be programmed by the installer to perform only a given number of cycles per hour, if your thermostat has this feature, eliminate the setting.

Checking air flow to the hear exchanger, is the compressor getting hot to touch, are there any kinks in the pipes, does it get cool at all? otherwise, a re-gas is the next step.

Problem with thermostat


Try this. Do as you already did above, but this time turn the thermostat slightly clockwise till it comes on again, and leave it at that setting for a while. Does it control now?

Try turning thermostat knob all the way to left or counter clockwise. This should shut the compressor off. If the compressor continues to run the thermostat is stuck closed & bad. If the compressor remains off with thermostat turned all the way to the left try turning it slightly to the right (warmest setting). See if it stops freezing. If it continues to freeze set at warmest setting replace the thermostat. Try pricing a thermostat out at Refrigeration Hardware. Link attached. Refrigeration Hardware Supply

This is the common problem to everyone. Due to defrost failure. Check temp setting is not very low. Keep 5 degree.. Check thermostat, defrost timer are working properly. Now, manuyally press defrost switch or turn counter clockwise your thermostat. Then fridge shuts off and wait for sometimes to get complete defrost and then restart again by turning thermostat clockwise. Helpful?

Refrigerator unit ices up


Open the fresh food door.
Get down low and look up underneath the control panel.
There will be a small round hole.
Use a flat blade screwdriver to turn the defrost timer clockwise slowly until the compressor turns off.
The timer will engage the defrost heater if it is not broken.
The defrost cycle will last about 20 minutes and then resume cooling.
If it does not defrost you will need to replace the defrost termination thermostat in the freezer and possibly the defrost timer.

Fan running but neither refrig or freezer is getting cold.


Your refrigerator may be stuck in defrost cycle. I know it has a defrost timer part number 215846602 Most times they are located inside the fresh food compartment behind the control panel. Sometimes below fridge and behind kick plate. The thermostat could be defective also. You can check that by unplugging the refrigerator remove cover and checking continuity between the two male connections located on the rear side of thermostat control turned as cold as you can turn it. Or you can join the two wires together and plug refrigerator back in to see if compressor comes on. When you find the defrost time turn clockwise slowly until the refrigerator starts. If these don't work let me know and we will do some more test. Sea Breeze
