Fridgidaire ac window unit

I have a Fridgidaire window unit with remote and safety plug with reset about a week ago i noticed the unit started shutting off and on again almost like someone was playing with the fuse box but nothing else was going on and off. well last night the unit stopped working all together i cant turn it on by hand or with the remote the plug is getting juice because the green light is on on the plug and my laptop is plugged into the same outlet. the unit is only about 2 years old it kinda works hard when it is running never shut it off for the summer. do you think it would be cheeper to fix or just get a new unit ? thank you

More than likely this unit could be fixed reasonably. It sounds from your explanation like a bad connection inside the control panel of your unit. Could possibly be what is called a cold soldered joint.

Unit in room displays fault code -0 and 6. Unit is a Sharp eco inverter AY-XP07ER. Unit runs for a few minutes and cuts out showing fault code.


Do not allow the signal receiver window to receive strong direct sunlight, since it can adversely affect its operation. If the signal receiver window is exposed to direct sunlight, close a curtain to block the light.

Using a Fluorescent lamp with a quick starter in the same room may interfere with transmissions of the signal.

The unit can be affected by signals transmitted from the remote control of a television vcr or other equipment used in the same room so make sure if anything recently added to the room is un plugged for testing purposes.

Do no leave the remote control in direct sunlight or near a heater also protect the unit and remote control from moisture and shot which can disclour or damage them.

Check whether the remote control batteries have become old and weak. (replace with new ones)

Try to send the signal again with the remote control pointed properly towards the units signal receiver window

Check whether the remote control batteries are installed with the polarites properly aligned

This could also be a result of the error locking out the remote as well so keep this in mind.

Also if possible unplug it and let it sit for atleast a day then plug it into a different outlet (if possible) to see if there is any change in the units functionality.

After that I would have to say check the area around the base of it and make sure that there is no moisture damage to the unit.

A good cleaning could be in order as well.

then if all else fails and the error presists contact customer service with the issue of the machine they will know what the error codes are.

hope that helps let us know how you make out.

My LG portable AC Model #LP1111WXR wouldn't turn off had to unplug it. Now won't turn on.


Unplugging the unit lets the tiny computer like microprocessor reset--means problem is in the brain of the unit or its power circuit.

Hi,
That is a high pressure safety switch....either the switch is bad or you are running extremely high pressure and need to unit serviced...you should hire a pro to find out the exact cause of your problem...gauges will need to be placed on the unit to determine that exact problem.

Before buying new one, try with this step. Remove batteries from your remote and reset it after 5 minutes. And also remove DC wires plugged to indoor sensor display, and after 5 minutes re set it again. Now start your unit. Sometimes it will work out. Thanks.

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.

LG Split unit turns itself off after a couple of seconds of opera


Check your remote control using your camera or cellphone camera as your eyes. Point the remote control transmitter to your camera and "on", light should emit in your remote control transmitter (means good remote). Reset the unit by disconnecting the power supply for 10 sec. then "on" again and start the unit. If it wont work you need a qualified tech. to solve the problem.Some of your safety device might be defective.
