Frigidaire AC model LRA187MT2. Compressor runs nonstop - does not matter what the temperature setting is. When put into fan mode displays H1 instead of the temperature. Filter is clean.

You probably have a circuit board failure. On the board there are micro-relays that control power to the compressor. And in that relay the switch that is normally open is stuck closed.

Why my air conditioner it's dropping water?

Condensation is normal but window air conditioners bases must be tilted to the outside of the window so the condensation drains outside. The drain hole in the pan can plug with dirt overfilling the pan allowing the water to leak inside your home.

I bought a new thermostat that requires a C wire. I have a spare wire in the cable that goes from my thermostat to my air handler. It's a Model B3BM-O36K-B Frigidaire model air handler.

At your AHU there may be a terminal block that has a C terminal. If not, you will need to locate C. Your outdoor units control wire should have 1 that connects to the Y signal allowing 24v to pass from Y at the t-stat to a wirenut at the air handler, from that wirenut to the contactor. And C comes from the contactor to a wirenut at the airhandler and to C side of transformer. Common wire colors from o.d.unit are red=24v and White from the o.d. unit, (NOT THE WHITE FROM T-STAT!) is the common. The transformer may also have a tag/sticker that states 24v and common with a color of wire for C. And if the t-stat takes batteries that you need to install, you shouldn't need C wired in. C is there so you don't need batteries, if it has a battery option.

Frigidaire AC window unit, model fam185r2a (18,500 BTU) only cools for a few minutes before it cycles off and just fan blows. Then a few min later cool air cycles back on. Is this a thermostat issue?

The window units normally have a sensor thats attached to the front of the indoor coil. This controls the thermostat. I usually pull this sensor away from the coil because it stops cooling before the room is cool. It is attached to the cold coil so it senses the coil temp, not the room temp. You can normally see it when you remove the air filter. Don't break it! It may be a wire or small copper tube

Error F8 on a Frigidaire AC model FASE24C6****

Good Afternoon Konrad, I understand that you are receiving an F8 error code on your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FASE24C6. I also see that it will work for hours before displaying F8 or sometimes only minutes before displaying the error code. The F8 tells me that there might be a key stuck. I suggest resetting your air conditioner, by unplugging it for 3-5 minutes. Plug your appliance back in and start any cycle. 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 air conditioner status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful. -Best Regards- WP

My fan speeds on my frigidaire window unit keep changing by itself. Input and advice please!!!

Hello Jordan, thank you for your inquiry!

From my understanding the fan speeds on your Frigidaire air conditioner changes on its own. Do you own a remote with your air conditioner? It could be getting accidentally pressed and that is causing your fan to switch. If you do not have a remote with your air conditioner it could be a potential issue within your control panel or keypad. I would then recommend performing a reset on your air conditioner and you can do that by unplugging the power cord and pressing the reset button. Once the reset button has been pressed you would need to hit the test button and then you should be able to plug it back in. If this does not resolve your issue I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

Frigidaire window unit fra18emu2 compressor will not turn off when power is shut off. Must unplug. Why?

Either the compressor relay has become stuck (most likely) or there is a wiring fault internally where power is being shunted directly to the compressor (also possible). Check the condition of the wiring around the compressor start capacitor and, if you see melted wires, there's your culprit. (NOTE: Melted wires all need to be replaced to eliminate possible fire hazard.)

How do I determine whether or not condensate should be dripping from a window ac?

The amount of condensate depends upon the relative humidity of the air. When the humidity is high, the AC unit will create more condensate and when humidity is low less is created. As long as the AC unit is working properly, I would not get overly concerned about it.

When turning on, unit cools normally. After compressor cycles off, it doesn't come on again. I have just cleaned the thermostat/sensor thinking this may help, am waiting to see. Thank you..

Compressor may not be turning off due to satisfied temperature, it may be turning off on safety trip such as high/low pressure, current overload. When the thermostat is set to a certain temperature, the compressor cuts off once the temperature has been reached or satisfied, try a lower setting to see if the compressor satisfies the setting demand. Some thermostats may be programmed by the installer to perform only a given number of cycles per hour, if your thermostat has this feature, eliminate the setting.

Trying to replace the power cord - but I can't remember which wire goes where... white & black wires have same type of connection, and not sure where the ground goes.

Need more information to give exact answer. If it is 120 volt, then white is neutral and black is the hot wire. The ground wire is connected to the metal frame, should be a green screw or a connection lug just for this ground wire. Post a picture of the wires you are trying to connect and a picture of the connection terminal on the ac unit and I can give you an exact answer.
