Question about Frigidaire FAC124 wall/Window Air Conditioner

Unit stops working and I need to unplug unit

This remote control unit has been working fine for 7 years. This year I notice that it will be blowing fine and then suddenly the temp control changes to #5 or #7 and only the fan will be working. I need to pull the plug because the remote or manual does not work. Then when I plug the unit in again it starts to work. Should I call the electrician or call be service

    I have this exact same problem, except my unit is the FAS155M1A1. It's only four years old. Occasionally after pulling the plug to resart it, it simply will not come back on. Sometimes it works fine for a bit, then shows a partial display, and runs fan only, other times it loses the display completely. Once the display is partial or off, the on/off button (or any button) doesn't work - and you're forced to reset by pulling the plug.

    It seems to me very much an electronics/controller issue, since everything else works great when its functioning.

After 7 years of great service you should retire this system and replace it with a new unit.

Products made these days are not built for quality, that was back in the good old days, it's 2008, things are made to only last a short period of time.

Sorry I couldn't be more help, but I will only tell you the best solution for your problem and not waste your time running around trying to fix something that may cost you more than replacing the problem you already have.

Have a Great Day!!

Why is my GE Advantium SCA2001 blowing the main fuse?


Yeah pal, you've not gone deep enough yet. You'll find a power wire bare inside the unit, pull it apart and tape that wire up to stop it from grounding out and blowing the fuse.

Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Display&contents=help_deadremote&uuid=A12963989782821
They also sell replacement remotes.
Zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site (or look at your own) and get the actual remote model number.

or check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remote", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

My remote only works on 1 and 2. # 3 does not work . How do I fix this?


You posted under Woods timers.
Woods makes a few different timers with remote.
One of them has 3 buttons
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#13568

You can try unplugging all 3 remote units so they reset, and then try setting up on button #3 first.

You can also work around using this method: unplug all remote units. Plug in two remote units and turn both lamps ON. Then use button #1 to connect to both of those remote units simultaneously. This way, two different lamps can be controlled by one button.

If remote control is genuinely defective, then send it back for replacement.
Industry-standard is one-year limited warranty.

I own 2 sets of this timer.
One of the remote units stopped working immediately and has never worked since.
Both the remote controls work, but only 5 of the 6 remote units work.

I test timers and 6-8% arrive defective. Most go bad after a few years, some last quite a while.

I have a Pentair Mastertemp 400. It worked fine for 3 years until the temp sensor went out and both (internal and external) were replaced about a year ago. It then worked fine for about another 7-8...


You might have a much bigger issue than the temp sensor. When the heater is running hold the "pool" or the "spa" button for 12 seconds. This will show the exhaust temp, if the temp is rising above 375 degrees with in 1-2 mins then your not getting the heat out of the heat exchanger.
One other thing to check would be an external by-pass. If you have an external by-pass make sure the by-pass is set correctly. Opened or closed to much can cause the problem your having.
