Question about Amana Haier AP125HD Air Conditioner
I have this Amana/Haier unit. I recommend reading the Owner's Manual because it actually discusses this issue although a bit indirectly. I've used the unit in Mississippi, and it's voltage and surge sensitive, and the Manual implies.
So, when the Manual says to put the unit on its own circuit, and to make certain that the circuit is also fully capable of supporting the electrical load, including the full amp load noted, it means it, in my experience. I even had to ditch a work-around long extension cord (albeit a heavy-duty, rated one).
The long term solution was making sure the machine was getting clean, non surging, non sagging AC power on its own circuit to the main board. And then ... it's worked flawlessly in heating, cooling, drying and ventilation modes.
One last thing ... the Manual is also serious about leaving the unit to sit still for 12-24 hours if it moved and rotated from the vertical. If fhe oil moves inside and can't resettle, it can also trigger motor shutoffs.
I hope this is helpful for enjoying what seems to be a well built machine.

My AP125HD had exactly the same symptoms. It did not matter what ac outlet I used where the air conditioner was.
But...THIS PROBLEM STOPPED once I moved the ac cord to an outlet outside of the house. This outlet is on it's own separate circuit breaker and I have no other electrical equipment/appliances on it.
I guess the user manual is correct that this unit should be on a home circuit all by itself!

I dont have this one, but I searched for problems because I am thinking of buying one. Thanks for info above. This unit has a very high capacity, and a very high electrical load to match. Understandable that it needs full capacity 15 amp service.
