SOURCE: Window AC takes spells on cooling?

One thing to check is to make sure the evaporator and condenser coils are clean. Any dirt here will short ccle the compressor.

have you brought it down for a general cleaning on the 3 year period? if not then that's what it needs now.

the coil is freezing up because of dirt accumulation on the coil. even there is a filter, still with in 3 years it could have accumulated to decrease the airflow thru the coil and freeze it up.

SOURCE: my frigidaire window AC is not cooling anymore

Does it get cold? You can try cleaning the fins-both inside and outside, with windex. Smoling & cooking will create a sticky deposit that will make dist that gets through the filter stick and it won't cool properly.
If it doesn.t get cold any more, try replacing the starting capacitor. About $5. If that doesn't take care of it, just replace the unit. They are cheap enough these days, that you can replace a unit with a more energy efficient unit for the same cost or less as a repair would cost.

Hello,Lilo The styrofoam pack MUST stay in place.When in operation the air tempature is so cold the unit will condensate(create water)if not insluated.Your unit would LEAK all over the place.The blower fan is a PLASTIC composit and should not rust.

Haier window ac constant red light? No label next to red light. Turns on and off fine. Cleaned filter, no change. couple years old. Still cools down the room but not as cold as it used to. Help?


Sounds like the unit is just dirty. The AC pulls air through coils and contains dirt, pollen, grease and all type of pollutants. These contaminants will cling to the coils, reducing the AC ability to transfer heat.

Here's a great YouTube video explaining how to properly clean a window AC. How to Clean Window Air Conditioner

AC units should be cleaned every year (including the whole house units), to maintain their ability to cool efficiently.

Ac is not blowing as hard and it was but is still cold?


Have you checked the current supply going to the A/C? A simple voltmeter will work or you can try a KILL-A-WATT available online or from many local retailers. You should be looking for approximately 120VAC @60 Hz. 5 years does not seem very long but given the way manufacturer's are making A/Cs these days I suppose the fan motor or motor bearings could be going bad. I don't know the cost of your model but if it is not over 10,000 btu's or so just let it run until it dies and replace it. At some point the motor will most likely overheat and blow a fuse or trip your circuit breaker. I own 2 Frigidaire window units myself.

2002 V70 Battery keeps going dead, tests after charge okay (540cca on a 600cca battery). The AC comes on hours after the engine has been shut off and key removed. I know this is supposed to happen after...


How old is your battery and if it's over 2 yrs old get a new one also when u get out of the car make sure u turn the fan all the way off then it won't try to turn on

Keeps flashing ES, not cooling. Not even one year old.


The 2 most common issues are a freon leak or the outside unit fan start capacitor goes out. It's more likely a capacitor issue. They fail regularly, especially when it's as hot as it's been this year. I had a fan capacitor go out on one of my 3 units last year and it cost close to $300 for an AC company to come out and fix it. I watched them fix it and it's something that you can do yourself if you know what you're doing and are careful to hook it up right. I have three AC units and another capacitor went out this year and I found a kit with detailed instructions with pictures and phone support at hvacrepairkits.com. It saved me over $200 on the capacitor replacement.

Window unit (110) cools for a few minutes then stops cooling just fan air unit is about 6 0r 7 years old


It sounds like your compresssor is shutting off on an overload. After the overload cools down the compressor comes back on until the overload heats up and shuts the compressor off again.The fan keeps running as it is not on the same circuit as your compressor.

I have an old (25 yrs or so) through the wall Whirlpool ac. I plugged it in and it runs and cools but it is noisy. Sounds like the fan is hitting or something. When I switched from Hi cool to Low cool...


A through the wall AC unit that has lasted 25 years or so? That's amazing and unheard of !!!

iI it's tripping a circuit breaker, there's an electrical problem with one of the circuits, within the unit and that can be dangerous. Certainly repairing it is an option. But, at 25 years old, I doubt that there are many parts for that model left in existence. Not to mention that the cost of troubleshooting it, parts and labor may cost almost as much or more, as a new Energy Efficient unit would cost.

You have to admit, you got your monies worth out of it over the past 25 years. So, if it were me making the decision, I'd opt for a new Energy Efficient model, with the same cooling capacity as your old one.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Check your air filter, make sure all registers are open full and there is no restriction in all ducts. Could be an unbalanced fan, clean the squirll cage fan with a brush and vacuum.
