I think I get a "bug" or "animal" in my unit every once in a while, that gets caught in the fan and thrown around for a few minutes. It makes a clunking noise, as you say. Maybe???

One of your breakers in your main panel should be for either one of those. Simply test receptacle for power as you try flipping each breaker off and on, until you find the right one. Quite often a high amperage draw item like electric frying pan, or hotplate plugged into the one by the kitchen area is the culprit. If they smell, or appear burnt or scorched, they should be changed, as well as the entire circuit tested for proper size wiring, as well as rated receptacle to handle big power( amperage draw). Extension cords will also cause same problem. Make sure if you have to use an extension cord, that is a heavier gauge wire, approved for that use, and is as short as possible. I'm assuming your AC is plugged in to a receptacle, and not on roof?

You say the unit is 220 volt, but the plug you installed has a white wire which is normally on a 120 volt outlet. A 220 volt outlet would have 2 black wires and ground. If you do have 220 there, and the reset does no good, I've seen those resets(they are basically built in GFI) blow out and had to bypass/put different chord on. there are fuses on the control board but I would check that last

The ac quit, check all connections not an issue. took off front panel to see where reset fuse located. is there one? whirpool 12k btu 110v model ACM122XJ1 SERIAL# QK2343975 IF THERE IS RESET WHERE...


The easiest way to reset it is turn the unit OFF and unplug it for 10 minutes. Then, plug the unit back in and turn it ON. The 10 minute timeout will allow the electronics to reset and revert back to the original factory settings. If it is able to reset, it will do it then and you can set the controls as you like.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a LG LWHD1500ER window air cond. and am wondering if I can plug it into a plug in my bedroom that has nothing else plugged into it? I don't know what a dedicated circuit means?


When you say dedicated circuit, you should have an electrical outlet that was installed just for your air conditioner. This outlet must have it's own circuit breaker that has higher ampere ratings. This ampere rating must correspond to your air condition horse power (HP) e.g. .75 hp, 1 hp, 1.5 hp, 2 hp. You should consult a qualified electrician for your safety.

While running in a screw to install a new electrical outlet cover, the outlet made a small pop and the lights flickered but immediately came back on. I plugged in the unit to see if it worked and nothing...

I bought this Whirlpool AD25BBL8 (model) from Lowes a few years ago. It no longer collects water - it will run forever with no water output. I can't afford to buy a new one - so need to make this...


Your air cond is either low on refrigerant, but more than likely the rear coil is stopped up. If you can, pull it out of the case, look through the rear fan in to the inside of the rear coil. You will probably see it is caked with dirt. You can wash this coil out with a water hose and sprayer, but be careful not to bend the coil aluminum fins and don't get any electrical component wet. Be sure to unplug it first, and after cleaning, let it dry for a couple hours before plugging it back up. Best way to do this is pull it out of the case, take it outside on the sidewalk and give it a good washing. Hope this works.

Turned on for a second, shut off, wont come back on


Ouch! This is not looking good for for this A/C if you were somehow able to plug it into a 240 volt outlet. Very few of these appliances have fuses or other overvoltage / overcurrent protective devices built in.

Electrical outlets are designed to reject plug connected appliances that (1) draw more current (or amps) than the circuit can safely provide, and / or (2) those appliances that operate on a different voltage than available at the outlet. So, it would be pretty hard to get a 120 volt appliance to plug into a 240 volt outlet - UNLESS you have "modified" the plug's prongs. Tearing out ground pins and / or twisting blades with pliers definitely falls into the "modified" category. It can also happen if a "handyman" installs a 120 volt configured outlet on a 240 volt circuit and simply tells you it is 240 v, not 120 v.

The compressor motor is probably toast, as are any electronics used to control the unit. Nothing is unrepairable though - it just comes down to how much you are willing to spend on fixing a 3 year old unit - compared to the cost of brand new.

I hope this helps - and good luck!

It died during the winter, it was great all last year, no problems. Today i turnred it on, nothing. where to start? who to call?


Make sure the outlet that you have it plugged in to is in good working order. i.e. plug a lamp/hair dryer in and see if it works

Check the breaker.
