Question about Heating & Cooling

Where is the reset button on a Whirlpool ACE184XRO air conditioner? The unit was working fine until I turned it off and then right back on. Now it won't come on. Overload?

    Thanks. I tried that but no go. I looked at the electrical schematic inside the front cover and it showed an overload symbol prior to the compressor. I was hoping it was a reset switch. It's a large air conditioner/heater combination unit and the outer cover appears to be difficult to remove (mostly because of the ubit's weight.

First go down and cycle the circuit breaker off by PUSHING it to OFF and then back on. It is possible one leg of the 220V is not there. Also there is a 3 - 4 minute time delay on the compressor circuit. The fan will run but the compressor will not. After the time delay cycle it should restart. Mind you the time delay cycle starts for 3 - 4 minutes as soon as it has input power. Any loss of power or that you turn off the unit and immediately back on it will again start the time delay. Overload maybe but I doubt it. After 5 hours I would think it has cooled off by now.

Also pull the power plug out of the socket and re-insert it. This again will restart the time delay but will ensure that you have a good connection at the wall.

Let me know how it works out and if your really do need more assistance just respond here and I will gladly help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Normally they have know reset on them. Most do have a time delay relay that will keep them from coming back on right away if they are shut off and back on real fast to prevent over loading the compressor. Turn it off for 5 minutes and back on. Wait 5 minutes to see if it will start up. If not, check your circuit breaker to see if it is tripped. Let me know what happens and we can go from there. Just leave me a message and I will get back to you to go into it futher.

    This is whats called a package unit, all in one. This overload that you see on the schematic is the overload protector for the compressor when it draws to many amps a trips this protector on the common wire to shut the compressor off until it cools down, and will reset on its own if there is not a problem with the unit. If the compressor tries to start and will not and it shuts right back off, the compressor has a locked rotor or it may be the run capacitor that starts and keeps the compressor running. You may have a dual run capacitor which will be only one that runs both the condenser fan motor and the compressor, or 2, one for each. The larger one will be for the compressor. Look to see if it is swollen, leaking oil, deformed, or any burned spots on top where the wire terminals are at. If you see any of these, replace this run cap. It is about $12 to $18 dollars. Now that I know this is a package unit, you will have a disconnect box at the unit. It should have 2 cartridge fuses inside of it. If you cant see them when you pull out the off/on power plug, look behind the plastic cover and they will be there. Most boxes have them, If you find a blown fuse, replace both of them.Check the main breaker which I believe you have already. Also, you should have a circuit board in this unit where all of the wires enter the unit. It should have 5/16" hex head screws to remove. You need to check for a 3 to 5 amp fuse in the board that is just like the ones that are used in your auto. See if this unit has one. I don't know the age of it, but it should have one, Also, it may have a reset to trip the transformer from burning out. It you do have a reset and a blown fuse, if you reset and or replace fuse and they blow, you have a dead short in a control somewhere in the unit, Is this package unit a gas fired unit, or a heat-pump? Please let me know and I can walk you through some things to check, so we can get this up and running for you. I am trying to save you some $$$$, so please let me know. I'm sorry I couldn't get back to you sooner, but will be available,

The reset button that came on the cord of my Fedders model AED24E7F-C keeps tripping after a short while. Otherwise the unit blows cold and works fine. I can hit the off button when it is working fine...


Do you have anything else on the same circuit? I have heard about many of these units, not just Fedders, that will not run on a circuit that has another appliance or something that is pulling a lot of amperage. Also, check and make sure the receptacle is not worn and the plug is loose fitting. Other wise, you definitely could have a weak internal connection in the cord. Hope this helps.

I have a AMANA PTh153B50AE (PTAC unit). The air conditioner works fine. It is when I turn on my heater and it does not get warm. It just blows cold air. I have looked at the board and it appears that...


I have the same problem, and I found the manual reset inside the unit. Turn the power off, and unplug the unit. Remove the outer cover of the unit ( inside cover ) , and remove the 2 screws holding the " wire mesh " in the front of the cover. Pull the wire mesh up and out of the way, then carefully pull out the heating element.
On the heating element, where the wires are connected, there is a manual reset button... Push the button in, till it resets...

My reset was on the upper left connection of the wires... just looks like a small push button, but the reset is recessed a bit.
Replace all covers and plug back in.. working fine..

When I turn my AC power on, the reset button pops out and the unit turns off. This happened yesterday, but then I hit the reset button and it was fine. Today, that is not working.


If it ran fine all day after you hit the unit, it sounds like its just the reset button that has the problem. What you can do, is turn off the power to the unit and pull this reset button out enough to get to the wiring. It should have the same wire going in one side and out the other as it is just a switch. Take a jumper wire and bypass the button. In other words just connect a piece of insulated wire and connect it from one terminal to the other, and this takes the button out of the system. This will be a temp. fix only, until you can get another at a appliance parts house. If its just wore out and there is nothing wrong with the unit, it will run. You say it was fine when you hit it that day? If it ran for the day, its just a faulty reset button, so just bypass it. Be sure to use black tape to tape any bare wires. Please don't forget to rate me as I know you will be kind to me. Please keep me posted on this also by my user name below. This will solve your problem until you get a new one.

I have a 2003 HR Endeavor with 2 roof ubits. The front unit will cool and heat but the rear unit will not come on. The thermostat will not cycle to zone 2. Any suggestions?


Try resetting the thermostat. If you have the 5 button comfort control, turn the thermostat off. While holding down the mode and zone buttons, turn the tstat back on and hold the buttons until FF appears in the display. Release the buttons and then see if zone 2 is available. If not, remove the inner cover off the front air and remove the cover off the control box. Inside this box there are DIP switches (red stripe with white switches). Set the one for zone 2 to off and then reset the tstat as described above. Turn zone 2 back on and once again reset. If this does not work, you more than likely have a bad control board in the front unit as this is the one that controls all that.

Hope this helps,

Whirlpool Heat and Air Window Unit ACE184XRO- freezing up


This is only low freon. If the bottom coils freezes and frost over, you don't have enough freon to travel as liquid back to the compressor and boils right there and past this only cool gas .I'll advise you to get this fixed before you loose a compressor due to locking up by not cooling the compressor properly. Get in touch with an Ac man. this should only cost around $100:00

It turns off


The e1 code is a demand to clean the filter. It means the unit has been running for 720 hours. It does not mean anything is broken...unless it hasn't been running for 720 hours. That would mean the "clean the filter" timer is broken! There are 2 reset methods.

1) Unplug the machine. Hold down the power button while plugging it back in and wait until it beeps (for about 5 seconds). Let go of the power button. Unplug the machine again, then plug it in and try to use it as an air conditioner.

2) Unplug the machine. Hold down the Mode button while plugging it back in. Keep the mode button pressed until it beeps (for about 3 seconds). Let go of the mode button. The machine will start. Turn it off by pressing the power button. Resume trying to use it as an air conditioner.

If neither of these work, the "clean the filter" timer is broken and needs replacing.
