Took temp readings today - after 3 minutes, both areas read 118 degrees (and climbing). The surround itself was hot to the touch. There is a power outlet that was installed when the

My dimplex has a remote control box that plugs into the outlet. I haven't used it for a year or more. smelled something hot when it was on. the outlet & box was very hot, the bottom of the box was melting. found out that my mom's dimplex did the same thing, only hers did not have a remote box. one space (where prong was) on the outlet was burnt looking. now I am afraid to use it again. This is scary if it is a dimplex fire risk.
You definitely have an electrical problem either with the remote box or the the A/C unit itself. Something within either of the aforementioned is overheating and use of the air conditioner should be stopped immediately, as it is a fire risk. Unplug e ... Air Conditioners

For the past two days I have had to reset the main circuit breaker for the outside unit. It appears to be running fine now. I'm just wondering is this an indication of the compressor about to go bad, overuse due to the hot weather we're having or the compressor overheating and becoming temporarily "stuck" until it cools down? I haven been able to check the current draw with my amprobe yet, and the thermostat has a "time-out" feature so I don't think the problem is "short-cycling" Just fishin
Bill, first thing, make sure the outdoor coil isn't stopped up with dirt. This will cause the compressor to overheat and possibly trip the breaker. If you you can check the amp draw that would be good. Look on the data tag on the outside unit and lo ... GE Air Conditioners
