I did the test as instructed which is to push the reset button did plug in and the resset button pops up....but the unit simply isn't powering up.

I left the unit off for over 8 hrs before I plug it in ..the box had recommended 3 hrs for the gas to resettle.

Did you try to plug a lamp into the same outlet as you have the A/C plugged into? It could be that you have no power at the outlet or the circuit breaker could be off or tripped. Something should run like the fan only position.

The circuit on the plug keeps tripping when I turn the unit on. Goldstar wg6007

most AC`s have a start capacitor at the compressor pump, if this start capacitor is defective your compressor will not start and cause it to draw more current than is normal, when you turn the unit on listen, if you notice a humming sound like an ac hum than this might be your problem, other units use a relay to start the compressor motor and if this relay is defective your compressor is remaining in the start winding position and will also consume excess current, obtain a diagram of your unit and this will indicate the type of start device employed and go from there

Where is the drain hole on goldstar window ac my ac keeps dripping water inside the house

Hello, make sure the unit is tilted toward the outside a bit, if it is level the condensate will collect in the front and start dripping inside the house. Also, if the unit has a drain make sure it is clean so the water can drain out properly.

There is a time delay on the stat to the AC unit, in addition the AC unit likely has one also, so immediate activation as desired isnt likely, however in 10 minutes of asking for AC if its not on still Id check the time delay fuses in the service disconnect at the AC unit, its a small grey box with the power cords running to and from it, there is 2 time delay fuses inside this box.

Yes,remove the ac unit from the window,and clean it out with a water hose out side,remove all debris from inside the unit,and tilt water out of unit.Make sure there is nothing in the way of the drain,and when the unit is put back in the window,make sure it has a very good tilt outward so the water will for sure flow outside,not in.If this was helpful,please rate,thank you.

I would have the unit checked by a Service Tech and would not run it (the AC) until it was fixed.

This could be a dangerous situatiion especially if the breaker doesn't trip.

Forclosed house we bought & now AC wont turn on

Usually there is a disconnect box installed on the wall, near the A/C unit., there is a switch or a fuse block with fuses in it, start there.
Good Luck,

This goldstar air conditioner model is WG2405RY7 It has an energy saver, but the unit just keeps running and won't shut off, everything else works.

Doe's the temp reach the set point? If not then it will run until it doe's. If you set the stat warmer and the fan keeps running after compressor shuts off check to make sure it is in power saver mode. Most AC units keep more even temp when fan is left on.
