Question about Frigidaire FAS185N2 Air Conditioner

3 Answers

The compressor is running but not cooling.

Hi, I received my airconditioner as a mother's day present last year and it's worked beautifully. Until now... All of a sudden I can hear the compressor running but the unit isn't putting out cold air. On June 28th we had a party and someone was messing with it while trying to redirect the vent. The unit was then turned off for the day.We then went on vacation the next day for a week. When I turned it on yesterday, it stopped blowing cold air. Could my friend have messed something up when fiddling with it? Please help. Unfortunately I can't afford to have a repair person out and I have 2 little kids so I have to try to fix this myself. Thanks! Denise Gustavson

Check to see if the filter is clogged,or check to see they didnt open the vent that brings in outside air,the air coming out should be 15 degrees cooler than the air in your house

If the compressor is running and not cooling and the fan is blowing then you probably have a leak in your system and have lost your freon consult your owners manuel for second thru fifth year warranty as the sealed system has an extended warranty and contact frigidaire cousmer service for further help sorry

Try the following to begin operating the air conditioner: 1. Plug in the air conditioner. (To prevent electrical hazards, do not use an extension cord or an adapter plug.) 2. Set the exhaust vent to the CLOSED position. 3. Press “On/Off” button to turn unit on. 5. Press Mode “COOL” 6. Press “TEMP/TIME” up or down V to the desired set temperature. Review the “Air Conditioner Features” section for other settings

Why can't I lower my honeywell 8500 below 67 on cool?


With a two story house you have to be aware that cold air flows downwards so any cold air coming from an ac unit will flow downstairs( normally down the stairway) so unless you can close off the down stairs then the up stairs unit will be cooling downstairs as well. Ac units have a thermostat located in the air intake and it cools until the cold air has risen to that point. In effect the space above the ac unit will be hotter than the floor. Knowing how they work ,you can see that the upstairs unit will never reach the set temperature because the cold air is continually heating from the house and will never get to the top thermostat.
So your solutions are
1-- fit controls that restrict the cold air from leaving the upper floor (Doors)
2--don't run the upper ac unit unless you are living up there (waste of money
)3 place an ac in each upper room and keep the room door closed

Why does home central air conditioner will only cool to 80 degrees?


Because it is low on Freon. Do not run it low or the compressor wont be able to cool and you will burn it up. If it has run more than 1 hour in 90 degree heat the compressor is probably already damaged. Have a HVAC professional look at it, but if you were still using id plan for the worse, a complete replacement.

My deLonghi dehumidifier no longer dehumidifies. The device appears to be functioning OK but is not taking a drop of moisture into the tank. Previously, it filled in about 48 hours.


Hi, Soorry for the delay in the respones but I was stuck in a factory job the last few days.
When this happens usuall either the compressor is not running or the unit is packed with dirt. Can you tell me if you hear the compressor kicking on? I will look up this model and cover all the bases for you. The sysytem is slow on resposnes right now but I will keep on top of this with you till se get it going. Alsocheck the tank for a pluggage in the drain tube.
