Some of the new style Air conditioners have a auto time delay built into them for power failures. If power fails or you unplug the unit, they will not come back on for about 3 to 5 minutes. This is a safety feature to keep power failures from damaging the compressor. Keep it plugged in for 5 minutes and try again. If still no go then call for service. You should have a 1 year warranty on it.

I have my brand new frigidaire window ac unit set at 60 degrees Fahrenheit, so why does it only cool and keep the room at 65 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit?
if you have it set at 60 F and it is working at 65 to 68 F then that would be about right
as the air is cooled the cold air falls to the floor and out under the door, open window or anywhere else it can escape
the unit has to be at 80% room height so if it is set in a window then when the cold air gets up to the thermostat or ac level in the window then it will stop cooling
So if the ac unit is say 4ft from the floor and the ceiling height is 8 ft then the ac will only cool the bottom 4 ft
cold air does not rise but falls down
if you are using a ceiling fan then the cold air is stirred up and the 65F sounds about right
remember that the setting temp ( what you set it at) is the lowest temp that it will go down to before it stops cooling and if that is not reached it will keep working to attain that temp and if the room is too big, air leaks under door . around the fit in the window , no insulated walls , hot exterior wall,etc then maybe 65 F is the best you will get
Where is the condensate line on a Frigidaire wall air conditioner?
There is sometimes a plastic hose between the evaporator and condenser side on the bottom of the case. Other models simply have holes in the metal for condensate to drain into the condenser side . Make sure there is no obstruction to the hose or holes. If you find none, then check the level of the unit. It MUST be slanted so the back of the unit is lower than the front.
Model FAZ12HS2A. When in Heat mode, why does it blow cool air?
Hello J, thanks for your post!
I see that your Frigidaire air conditioner is not emitting the proper air when in heat mode. I would recommend performing a reset on your air conditioner and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord. Once you have removed the power cord, press the reset button and then the test button. You should then be able to plug it back into the wall and start it up. If you continue to have issue with it an electrical component may need to be replaced and I would recommend this be completed by a professional technician. They would have the knowledge on how to properly disassemble the air conditioner without any harm. Good luck! -Matt
My frigidaire air conditioner is making my apartment feel damp and when i took my filter out to clean it that part was damp too! What do I do to fix this?
You may have a clogged drain or the unit is installed without enough angle pitch for the water to drain to the back of the unit toward the outdoor section of the unit. I'm assuming it's a window air conditioner? The moisture condenses on the cooling coil near the filter and should drip down into a condensate drain pan, then the water should drain to the back of the unit into a pan at the condenser coil fan that is rejecting the heat outside. The fan blade usually has a ring on the outdoor fan that pick up the condensate moisture the fling accumulated water onto the hot condenser coil to evaporate it. Also the filter should not be touching the cooling coil. Make sure it in the correct slot. Some a/c cooling coil require a wetting agent that allow the water to slide down the coil and not pull off of the coil into the indoor circulating fan.
