  1. Has it ever worked before? It could be a manufacturer's defect.
  2. Make sure the power supply is firmly connected to the air conditioner.
  3. Try using a new power cord (if possible)
These are the first 3 things that I would try. How old is the air conditioner? If you are still under warranty, try calling the manufacturer.

Good luck!

Why does the unit beep after it is pluged in.


Most new window units have a ground fault circuit. More than likely, the outlet you are using is Not grounded or the Neutral and Hot side are reversed. They make a tester you can purchase at most home improvement stores. I would go buy one and test the outlet. You could have other outlets with the same problem. You have to use a 3 wire outlet. Large side of outlet=neutral, small side of outlet=hot, round or arched hole=earth ground.

Hi, my Frigidaire AC (FAA068P7A) unit was working fine last year. Put it back in the window today and now it won't power on. I checked the power cord, but cord is fine (I actually opened up the machine...


Sounds like a breaker has tripped (caused by the unit) or is it might just be 'off' for some reason. I would check the outlet (where the AC plugs in at).

If the AC is a 110V unit you can check the outlet by plugging in something else, i.e. a hairdryer. If the hairdryer doesn't work either - then you know your breaker is tripped. On the other hand if the hairdryer 'works' then you know the problem is in the unit, where I'm afraid you'd be better off to have a technician to trouble-shoot it, although you could try sending additional information at this point for more help.

Remember if it is a breaker tripped - it was probably tripped by a malfunctioning Air Conditioner so if it 'trips' again in the immediate future you will need someone to check it out.

good luck!

I have a question on Coleman AC


First of all, an extension cord and GFI receptacle to run an AC unit will almost always blow either GFI or circuit breaker or both due to large current draw from AC unit. If an extension cord needs to be used, keep it as short as possible, and use the heavier gauge that is approved for AC use. What happens when you use an extension cord, is the voltage drop that will happen by the time the AC gets power. With any voltage drop, the amperage draw increases, so a 15 amp circuit breaker will most likely trip. Nowadays, all AC units are wired with a minimum 12 gauge wire rated for 20 amps.
You say nothing is happening now, is that to say that the fan only mode doesn't work on the AC unit either?

Take cover off of electrical compartment, locate power on off switch, see if you have proper voltage before and after switch, if power is present locate thermostat, check the same way, also look for burnt wiring, Good luck.

Moved a/c to another window and wont work


Check your outlet wiring. The polarized outlet has a narrow slot and a wide slot, and a ground hole, of course. Anyways, the narrow slot should be hot. If you put a voltage tester lead into the narrow slot, and the other lead into the grounding hole, you should read line voltage if the grounding hole is grounded properly. If you test the wide slot to ground and get line voltage, you have reversed polarity and must swap (reverse) the lead wires in the outlet to correct the problem.

Maytag A/C window unit


Check all of the connections at the outlet. If everything looks ok test the outlet that it is plugged into with a tester. They can be picked up at most stores for around 8 dollars. If you dont have a tester you can just plug in another device that you have into the outlet and see if it turns on. If everything checks out OK then there is an issue with the A/C unit. It could be alot of different things. My recommendation to you is if it is under warranty contact Maytag and send it in for service. If it is not under warranty you can either contact Maytag and send it in for service or you can call a local heating and cooling shop and see if they can service it for you. Keep me posted - Tech101
