Probably power surge shorted out the main board. If so it will need to be replaced. Gotta call for service.

Why incessant beeping?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FRA124HT2, begins with a constant beeping, and changes the modes itself, about every 30 minutes. I also see that it ends up on a different setting each time it does this. I suggest resetting your air conditioning, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. Bring power back to it and turn it on. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Sounds like you have a 220 volt air conditioner plugged into a 120 volt outlet.This will cause the conditions you are describing.

First replace fan capacitor and try, if not, bearings worn out in your fan motor. Replace bearings or motor with new capacitor.

with the Lmu24 you have a variable speed compressor i wouldn't suggest attacking this repair on you own, get a Nate certified Sr. service tech out there and have them do cause your taking about high end cutting edge compressor technology, how ever if you need them i can email you a pdf copy of both owners and service manual.

Frigidaire fac127p1a 12000 btu compressor


The compressor is probably going out on either a pressure related or heat related overload. Both are a result of low refrigerant. There may be a low pressure safety swich that protects the compressor. Otherwise it may be an internal thermal overload that is tripping. It resets itself and comes back on. The thermal overload heats up and shuts off the compressor to protect it from too much heat which is gernerated by not enough refrigerant in the system to keep the compressor cool. It may be cheaper to replace the unit than have someone try and fix it. It is pretty time consuming and you cannot try it yourself unless you have an EPA Certificate to buy the refrigerant. Check with your local appliance repair man to see if he will tackle it.

GE Air conditioner cannot kick into airconditioning mode


it sounds like either the start components for the compressor have failed or the compressor itself has failed, since it is not kicking the breaker I would lean towards start components.if it is a PSC only comprssor, you may be able to add a start assist to get the compressor started. I assume that since it is 8000 btu it is 110VAC you can probably get a generic start kit at your local appliance parts house. they have a diagram and are fairly easy to install, just be aware that the capacitor storea charge on the OFF cycle, and can be dangerous
