Hello jerrydj1021 - Often when the breaker trips, it is a
mainly because there is too much current running on one circuit. Is the unit
plug into a GFI outlet? It is not recommended to use GFI outlets or too many
appliances plugged into that one circuit. Try plugging the unit into another
direct outlet and see if the breaker trips again. 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 the unit's status has changed successfully.
Hello Naomi - Thank you for your question. When the air conditioner is beeping, it may be
a warning sign that the filter needs to be clean or that you need to reset the
unit. The LED (light) will illuminate and beep after 250 hours of operation.
After cleaning the filter, you may reset the "FILTER RESET" option by simply
pressing and holding down the button for approximately twenty seconds and the
light/beeping will go off. However, if you have done this, try pressing the "RESET"
button on the GFI plug of the unit. Wait approximately 2-3 minutes and then
turn on the air conditioner. If issue persists, then at this point I would
suggest reaching out to the manufacturer directly to see if you have any
limited warranty on the appliance or you may alternatively, visit the

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 button on the plug is a GFI. Ground fault interuppter. Like on your hair dryer. When the unit is running, or has just tripped out, feel the plug and the well receptical. If either feel warm or hot, do not continue to run the A/c unit. Get an electrician to check for a faulty/ worn/improperly wired outlet. The units tripping out for a reason.
Probable cause is a single pole gfi opposed to a double pole gfi.
* Do not use a single pole GFCI ON A MULTI WIRE CIRCUIT, IT WILL NUISANCE TRIP IMMEDIATELY
Use a two pole GFCI circuit breaker on such circuits.
