AC pulling to much power from outlet. Thus tripping the switch.
try to remove all that is plugged into this outlet and have only the AC plug into the outlet.

If you live in an apartment, there might be a dedicated plug for AC. Ask the super.

    not worth it since you can buy new AC for like 100.00.



    The only thing that would trip the switch would be something that's pulling too much power then the outlet can handle.

Have a duo therm a/c unit that comes on as soon as the 30 amp main plug is plugged in. If its switched to on, it works fine, but if you switch to off, it does not shut off but trips the breaker in my


When you switch it to off is that at the thermostat? How long before the breaker trips? Is it possible that the heater strips are coming on at the same time as the a/c? Have you been doing some work on this unit? 30 amps is a lot of juice and I would think you would smell or hear something. You got me curious. You say it comes on when its plugged in, Is that before its switched on? Maybe the compressor contactor is stuck closed. Hope this helps, good luck.

Reset button ac unit


Hello jerrydj1021 - Often when the breaker trips, it is a mainly because there is too much current running on one circuit. Is the unit plug into a GFI outlet? It is not recommended to use GFI outlets or too many appliances plugged into that one circuit. Try plugging the unit into another direct outlet and see if the breaker trips again. 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 the unit's status has changed successfully. Thank you.

I HAVE A FEDDERS AIR CONDITIONER MODEL AED24E7F-C THIS UNIT TRIPS THE RESET BUTTON ONCE IN A GREAT WHILE IT RUNS FOR HOURS OR DAYS ON END AND THEN TRIPS. IT TAKE AWHILE AFTER THAT BEFORE I CAN RESET...


The reset button is part of the cord. The cord has built in arc detection. This is a complex circuit that monitors the unit and senses potentially dangerous sparks or arcing inside the internal components of the A/C (motors, switches, etc.) It sounds like the problem is getting worse - as they usually do. Sparking and arcing happen when dirt, corrosion, etc. accumulates and can result in pitted contacts. All of these conditions only make the sparks and arcs worse. Page 1 of the manual (left column) says this:

If the Arc Detection Device has tripped, the
reset button will pop up.


Follow these steps to reset the Arc Detection
Device:


1. Unplug unit from electrical outlet
2. Press the reset button
3. Plug the unit back into electrical outlet
4. Check to see if power has returned to the unit

Testing


You should test the Arc Detection Device
equipped power cord monthly, after every major
electrical storm, or if power to your Room Air
Conditioner has been interrupted.

Follow these steps to test the Arc Detection
Device:


1. Unplug unit from electrical outlet
2. Press the reset button
3. Plug the unit back into electrical outlet
4. Press test button. Unit should trip and reset
button will pop up.
5. Press reset button again for use
If above test fails, stop using the air
conditioner and contact customer service by
calling the following toll-free number:
1-800-332-6658 or email:
customerservice@fedders.com

I hope this helps & good luck!

My a/c unit keeps tripping when i plug it in. i've tried to hit the reset button on the plug but doesnt do anything. i unplug and plug back into outlet and it trips again. what can i do to fix it?


Hi,
There is nothing you can do to fix it... the compressor is trying to start and cannot so it trips the plug. The plug trips to protect the house circuit from being overloaded and causing a fire.
Getting the compressor replaced is cost prohibitive, it is cheaper to buy a new unit.

Spray washed outside of the unit with a garden hose - now when I plug unit in, the reset button at the plug immediately trips - I let fully dry overnight but reset still trips upon plugging the unit into...


Obviously, one of the electrical components is still wet or got damaged by the garden hose washing. Until you remove the unit from the window or wall and dismantle the cabinet, there's no way to know what damage has been done.

I'm sorry, I wish I had a quick fix solution for you. But, there just isn't one, short of replacing the entire unit.

sounds like a direct short. Changing the plug and circuit protection may not eliminate the problem, but it would let you know for sure. I would not change that plug without ground fault interruption.

When I plug in the unit it trips the reset button every time. Its


This is only a 5,200 BTU unit - for single room use.

If you're sure the voltage ok, it sounds like the unit is new and should be under warranty.

The power plug keeps tripping. when i press the button on the plug. it just trips.


Either there is something wrong with the unit or you have something else plugged into the same circuit. Air Conditioning units draw a lot of power and will trip a breaker if there is a moderate load on the same circuit. Try plugging it in to an outlet that you know doesn't have anything else on it. The other thing you can do is see what else turns off when the breaker trips, that will tell you what else is on the circuit.

GFI plug trips when pluged in, no reset


You are trying to draw too much power from the dedicated electrical line, or you may have an outlet that is needing replaced. Try to use another plug, in another room to test
