Question about Goldstar KG6000R Window Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Air conditioner won't reset.

After a recent rain storm, our air conditioner "tripped" and would not reset even after pressing the "reset" button on plug. This happened once before and we left it unplugged for quite some time, eventually trying the air conditioner again before planning to take it out of the window. That time it seemed to reset itself and work again until this recent rain storm. What can we to reset it this time?

If you're trying to reset it right after it trips, you're not giving it enough time for the pressures to equal out.
Also, try again, unplugging it from the wall and waiting about 20 minutes before plugging it back in.
If it got a good surge from the storm, it may have grounded out the compressor.

I HAVE A FEDDERS AIR CONDITIONER MODEL AED24E7F-C THIS UNIT TRIPS THE RESET BUTTON ONCE IN A GREAT WHILE IT RUNS FOR HOURS OR DAYS ON END AND THEN TRIPS. IT TAKE AWHILE AFTER THAT BEFORE I CAN RESET...


The reset button is part of the cord. The cord has built in arc detection. This is a complex circuit that monitors the unit and senses potentially dangerous sparks or arcing inside the internal components of the A/C (motors, switches, etc.) It sounds like the problem is getting worse - as they usually do. Sparking and arcing happen when dirt, corrosion, etc. accumulates and can result in pitted contacts. All of these conditions only make the sparks and arcs worse. Page 1 of the manual (left column) says this:

If the Arc Detection Device has tripped, the
reset button will pop up.


Follow these steps to reset the Arc Detection
Device:


1. Unplug unit from electrical outlet
2. Press the reset button
3. Plug the unit back into electrical outlet
4. Check to see if power has returned to the unit

Testing


You should test the Arc Detection Device
equipped power cord monthly, after every major
electrical storm, or if power to your Room Air
Conditioner has been interrupted.

Follow these steps to test the Arc Detection
Device:


1. Unplug unit from electrical outlet
2. Press the reset button
3. Plug the unit back into electrical outlet
4. Press test button. Unit should trip and reset
button will pop up.
5. Press reset button again for use
If above test fails, stop using the air
conditioner and contact customer service by
calling the following toll-free number:
1-800-332-6658 or email:

I hope this helps & good luck!

Central air conditioner unit comprssor doesn't come on i suspect a lightening storm did something while we were away


check main power breaker, and reset breaker on unit, otherwise lightning storm would have nothing to do with units problem other then power surge, which would trip a breaker. Hope this helps, Thanks Mikemc1bean.jpeg

My r7184P, I have to keep pressing the reset button for it to work. Changed filter, and cleaned fuel line.


The reset button may be tripping because of air flow restriction.. The filter may be dirty or the evaporator coil may be clogged if this is the case you need to clean the coil with a coil cleaner available at home improvement stores. It also could be the bi-metal in the swith itself has gone bad in that case the cord needs to be replaced. The cord problem happens when there has been an electrical storm or a heavy power surge. Its not often but it does occur.

Good Luck on your repairs

LG M8003L Air Conditioner does not power on


i think there may be damage to a small electrical component in the circuit board which probably fried just before breaker popped open

I have outdoor Goodman compressing unit, model #cple24-1c. The breaker tripped and I was told to take out the connector located in the box by the unit and reset the breaker. The breaker did not trip again....


No, the electrical whip should be able to handle all weather, moisture, and even immersion. The only reason to replace a whip is if it has suffered some kind of physical damage. I recomend keeping an eye on it and if it trips again, have a pro come check out the system because something is not right inside the unit.

The lightening may of caused a surge and your unit may have it's own protector that resets and comes back on after a time frame programed into it.
