That means that it is dehumidifying. Is the air coming out still cold? I assume you have tried using the mode button to switch it back? Is the air extremely humid? Perhaps it is humid enough that the machine needs to dry the air before safely operating as an AC. The manual is available here:
Good Afternoon Jonathan, thanks for your post!
From the information you have provided the fan on your Frigidaire air conditioner turns off after a few seconds of being on. This could be an issue with your fan motor or control panel. I would suggest performing a reset on your air conditioner. You can do that by unplugging the power cord and pressing the rest button. You should then hear a click and press the test button then plug the air conditioner back in. If that does not correct your issue you may need to have a technician out to your home to perform a proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt
I understand your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# LRA074AT7, which keeps tripping the reset button. I see that it will start up and then trips the reset button after a minute or two. First, be sure the electrical service is adequate for the model you have chosen. This information can be found on the serial plate, which is located on the side of the cabinet and behind the grille. Secondly, be sure the air conditioner is properly grounded. To minimize shock and fire hazards, proper grounding is important. The power cord is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug for protection against shock hazards. Lastly, your air conditioner must be used in a properly grounded wall receptacle. If the wall receptacle you intend to use is not adequately grounded or protected by a time delay fuse or circuit breaker, have a qualified electrician install the proper receptacle. 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 appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.
Check the thermostat to make sure it is set for cooling and calling for Ac. Check outside to make sure fuse for disconnect if any is blown .if everything check out then open cover and check contactor .If contactor is pulled in and nothing run check capicator .
Sounds like a faulty Tstat that's sending a low voltage signal to the contactor coil only sometimes. The high pressure cut out or the compressor's internal thermal protection could of opened, and then closed again after cooling. Make sure the condenser is clean and not obstructed.
It could be several things, Not like changing a light bulb. If the fan's shot the unit will try to cycle, will stop, will click, will sit a little and everything starts over again...That's just one item...the easy one.. Because of it's age and other problems, I strongly suggest Goodwill, St. Vincent's. Home Depot right now, has a 5kw (small room 10x15 max.) for a hundred bucks. The old unit is bagged...time to go!
AC has a relay, it sounds like it failed on ya. If the unit was on all the time, was it that hot where you were or do you mean switched from AC to fan on all day? From what you said, it sounds like the unit burned its relay out for overheating, meaning thermostat may have originally failed keeping unit on until relay popped. Careful of fire hazard.
