The unit may be drawing more current than the outlet can withstand. Also check to see if the chord is secured and properly installed. The outlet itself may have a loose wire so check to make sure it's good. Otherwise it could simply be the reset switch is burnt out and will keep tripping no matter what. Replace if neccessary. Hope this helped.

Ac unit keeps tripping the reset button


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# LRA074AT7, which keeps tripping the reset button. I see that it will start up and then trips the reset button after a minute or two. First, be sure the electrical service is adequate for the model you have chosen. This information can be found on the serial plate, which is located on the side of the cabinet and behind the grille. Secondly, be sure the air conditioner is properly grounded. To minimize shock and fire hazards, proper grounding is important. The power cord is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug for protection against shock hazards. Lastly, your air conditioner must be used in a properly grounded wall receptacle. If the wall receptacle you intend to use is not adequately grounded or protected by a time delay fuse or circuit breaker, have a qualified electrician install the proper receptacle. 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.

-Best Regards-

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!

The reset button that came on the cord of my Fedders model AED24E7F-C keeps tripping after a short while. Otherwise the unit blows cold and works fine. I can hit the off button when it is working fine...


Do you have anything else on the same circuit? I have heard about many of these units, not just Fedders, that will not run on a circuit that has another appliance or something that is pulling a lot of amperage. Also, check and make sure the receptacle is not worn and the plug is loose fitting. Other wise, you definitely could have a weak internal connection in the cord. Hope this helps.

The Reset button on cord keeps tripping, when turned on it works for a minute then trips again


There's obviously there is a short or electrical overheating problems omewhere in the appliance that's causing the circuit breaker (Reset Button) to trip. Stop using the AC unit and have it checked by a professional.

Unit will not turn on when Electric current is on


There is no power to the unit, the power is fed from a spur switch which is usually placed next to the unit, it comes with a fuse. The spur switch is also fed from the MCB or the consumer unit which contains all the fuses supplying power to the appliances in the house.
Usually they are clearly marked, look for the one that supplies power to the air conditioner and check whether the circuit breaker is ON or OFF. If is off switch it on and if the breaker stays on, you have power and you can try switching on your unit and hopefully if there is no fault on the unit it should start up.
On the other hand if the circuit breaker doesn't stays on and it trips back automatically, am afriad there is an earth fault in the unit you need to call an experct to come and check the unit.
If the Breker stays on but the unit does not power up, check the fuse in the switch spur and if you dont have the test instrument to check the fuse, just replace it with a new one with the same amps rating that you are 100% sure that its working.Remember to press the reset button which is the safety device between the power cord and the unit.
Good luck.

Sounds as though the power cord reset switch might be bad and need to be replaced. If not, then there is a short somewhere in the system. Do an ohms test on the switch to determine if it is bad.

Faulty safety power cord...


You can by-pass it by simply connecting the 2 wires together. Obviously the safety it is supposed to protect you from will not work, but it can get you by instill a replacement can be found. It seems like the surge burnt the coil out on the switch. If you are conscious of the heater and what its going ,you should be safe. They made these things a long time without a trip switch on the cord. It just requires some common sense.
