Plugged 120v window AC into a 220v socket

I bought a 6000 BTU window AC and plugged it in the wall socket for the AC. It turned out that the socket is 220v. Now my AC is not working. Is there a fuse in Whirlpool ACQ062PS1 that I can just replace? I don't have the manual since I just bought it use. HELP!!!

Hello Pete T - From what you have described the air conditioner possibly have a defective power/control board or faulty plug. I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose and repair the unit.

The blower dosent work on my fra124ht1 frigidaire ac what can be done


If the unit is not producing any cool air, then you must see if there are replacement parts available for this unit from your manufacturer. Some units, this small, do not have many parts that can be purchased and repaired.

For a/c unit, is there an adapter available or do I need a new plug cord


Actually you should buy and install an AC wall outlet. An AC uses more amperage than most any other appliance due to the fact it has 2 motors the compressor and the blower / fan motor. An AC wall plug has larger terminals so that the plug does not ever heat. Changing the cord to a different and smaller terminal plug is a bad choice due to the danger of overheating the wall outlet terminals. You can buy the AC horizontal terminal outlets at any hardware store. Unless you have a 110V AC unit you will also have to run a 220V #10 Romex (3 wire) with ground to the outlet to be in code.. An AC unit 1 HP (10,000) BTU or larger requires over 15 Amps for start up. Those that are 20,000 BTU or larger obviously require more than 15 amps as a power source.

Thanks for using FixYa.

We just bought a frigidaire 22000 btu unit. We we


If you have or know someone how has a multi meter just test that you have 220 volts at the outlet. Thats about the only way to tell. The fan will run if you only have 120v at the outlet, just not the compressor. so it will not cool. If you only 120v at the outlet it could be just a fuse or breaker problem. If it's a new outlet then it could be wiring wrong also.
Hope this help

Window or wall mount


The differance between a window and wall mounted A/C is the mounting system.
Window units are usually smaller BTU systems they set in the window, so you do not have to cut a hole in the wall to install it.
For a bedroom say 10 x 10 you can use @ 5000 btu it plugs into a standard 120 volt electric outlet. If the room is bigger then go bigger say @ 6000 btu or so. Take your room dementions with you when shopping for a unit. sometimes they have sizing on the side of the unit box.
Wall units are usually larger units. Like whole house 18,000 btu
they slide in and out of the case and use a 240 volt seperate circuit.
Best place to shop for A/C's are Home Depot, Lowes, Sams Club, B.J.'s, and Cosco they buy in large volumeusually give a Good deal I've seen 5000 btu units as low as $89.00
Just don't drop the unit out the window when installing it
From the second floor it will void your warranty. LOL
Good Luck Phil
