If moisture/water gets to the control board it will/may cause it to act this way. Or the control board may have a short. It may also have a bug, mouse, or gecko laying on the controls. Something causing it to "misfire" or short. If a visual inspection does not show evidence then its probably control board failure.

AC units, no matter if they are big/small, window or big central units. They will only cool the air in the room, or home, to about 15 degrees cooler than the outside air temperature. If you live in Georgia and it is 100?F+ outside, you will be lucky if the unit will reach 80?F even running all day.

Thank you for your post, John!

Based off the information you have provided you need the code for a universal air conditioner remote. You may need to speak with manufacturer of the remote for that direct code. Best of luck! -Matt

Could have clipped the low voltage wire outside with a weed wacker, could have blown out the run capacitor or lost a major component! If the unit is buzzing when you turn it on but nothing's running (compressor or fan)then you have a failed run capacitor! The list of things it could be are endless without more info

Hello friend, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand that you are getting an "EC" error code on your Frigidaire air conditioner. However, it appears "EC" is an invalid error code. It is possible that the error code is missing characters? I show that the error code "ES" or "CS" is valid. In the meantime, I suggest resetting your air conditioner. You can do this by flipping the household circuit breaker for roughly ten minutes. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, could you please inform me of the new error code or if your air conditioner continues to display "EC". I look forward to assisting you. -Matt

Are you sure you don't have a Heat Pump Condenser? You don't list the outdoor unit M#? If it is a Heat Pump system the outdoor unit has to run. Here is the link to the indoor unit. http://enora.nortekhvac.com/literature/a977a.pdf
