I had it on energy saver and last night it just shut off and power would not come back on and the green light for power plug was not lit. I kept it unplugged all day and then when I came home from work I hit the reset button on plug and it came back on and works again. Is this normal?

I understand you want to know how to turn off the power save mode for your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FFRE12L3Q1. Your appliance will run in energy saver(econ) mode when used for the first time. In this mode, the fan will continue to run for 1 minute after the compressor shuts off. The fan then cycles on for 20 seconds at 10 minute intervals until the room temperature is above the set temperature, at which time the compressor turns back on. You will be able to turn the energy save mode off by selecting your temperature as well as your fan speed. 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 appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.
The Energy Saver mode is activated by using the hand held remote control, that comes with the unit. Pressing the Energy Saver button activates it. Once activated the fan will shut OFF when the the compressor does. After which, about every 3 minutes the fan will turn ON to check the room air to determine if cooling is needed.
It sounds like, you're missing the hand held remote control?
If this is a window or wall unit. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF. Unplug the unit and wait 12-15 minutes. Then, plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the controls on anything except energy saver. If the unit then operates as it should, let it run for at least an hour before switching it to Energy Saver Mode. If that's the way you want to operate it. If it doesn't restart and run like it should or it shuts OFF on Energy Saver Mode, there is a problem with one of the setting sensors and needs to be replaced.
Also, while you have the unit unplugged, check the outlet to make sure it's still active. You can do this by plugging in a lamp. If the lamp doesn't work, the circuit breaker for that outlet has been tripped in your home's circuit breaker panel and needs to be reset. When you plug the AC unit back in and it trips the breaker again, there is an electrical short or overload in the AC Unit.
Please keep in mind everything I suggested is based on your AC being a 120 volt window or wall unit.
Doe's the temp reach the set point? If not then it will run until it doe's. If you set the stat warmer and the fan keeps running after compressor shuts off check to make sure it is in power saver mode. Most AC units keep more even temp when fan is left on.
I would try the same solution as the E1 error code, Not sure if it will work, but it seems to be the same issue
1. Power down the air conditioner using the "power" button on the front
2. Unplug the air conditioner from the wall socket.
3. Hold the front panel "power" button down and plug the air
conditioner in. Continue to hold the power button down as the machine
goes through a brief test sequence (fan & compressor each come on
briefly, etc). There is a "beep" sound at the end of the test sequence,
and the machine will be off. At this point, you can release the power
4. Unplug the air conditioner.
5. Plug the air conditioner back in.
6. Congratulations! You should now be able to operate the air
conditioner normally for another 720 hours, but only if you followed
the instructions above EXACTLY.
Check to see if it has energy saver option on unit or timer. If you have, and you have tried to use it you may need to call the manufacturer. If it does and you haven't used it yet, try setting energy saver. It also helps the A/C last longer by preventing unit from freezing up from overuse.Note- make sure you set the temperature for a setting that is comfortable for you for day and night.
if you remove the front cover you should see a little sensor with a wire. you need to make sure it has not fallen off its bracket or came off form the evaporator. if it looks to be ok and mounted correctly, you may have a bad sensor and it is not able to tell the temp and not shut the unit down. also to on very hot and humid days even though you have it set to energy saver it senses it still needs to run. If you turn the thermostat up when its on the energy saver will it shut off? and if you do the same on the regular setting will the comressor shut off and the fan stay running? Let me know and I can go from there. Thanks
