GE APH10AA - beeps once when plugged in but doesnt turn on

\015 Hi,\015\012I have a GE portable air conditioner, I believe the model is APH10AA. It's been working, then one night when I go to turn it on, it doesnt turn on. I tried unplugging it and plug it back in. When I plugged it back in it beeps once, but is still not coming on. However the blades that moves to circulate the air is moving, but no fan comes on and no "ON" light turns on. What could be wrong? Is the complressor locked up ?\015\012\015\012Any help is appreciated !!!\015\012\015\012Thanks\015

Answers :

It could be just the start capacitor for the compressor that has gone out. Easy way of checking is to take a screwdriver and short across the leads after you have unhooked it from the wiring connectors (don't touch metal while doing this, it CAN shock you) and take an analog meter, put it on ohms for resistance, and touch it across the two connectors. The meter should jump, then switch leads and touch them again. It should jump consistently like this. If it's not that, then it's probably either faulty wiring, switch or if all else fails it could be the compressor went to ground. Take off the leads going to it, again set the meter to full resistance, and put one lead on copper tubing going into the compressor, and touch each pin of the connector on unit. If any of them read anything, then it is the compressor. Hope this helps.

Hello, I have a Fujitronic FA1300 portable AC unit that has been malfunctioning. What happens is, when I turn the unit on, it runs for a few seconds, and then stops working. When this happens it beeps several times, and the green image on the right side of the display panel begins flashing. The image looks like a square with the top side missing, and four dots inside the box. The unit will not turn on until I hit the reset button located on the side of the plug. The problem repeats if I turn it

I have a Honeywell oscillating quiet cooling tower fan that was bought two years ago. Loved it, till yesterday it just stopped working. the oscillating feature still moves, but the fan does nothing. the buttons still beep and turn on and change while plugged in, and it sounds like something is working...but obviously not everything cause the fan doesn't fan. Is it fixable? Should I send it to the manufacturer? Or just eat the cost and buy a new fan?


Could be fixable but until someone determines the problem there is no way of knowing if it is fixable. Could be a broken wire between the selector switch and the motor or the motor itself could be bad.When you are trying to operate it does the ... Air Conditioners
