Replaced window unit - new one won't power up (2nd model)

\015 The new A/C is actually a Samsung Energy Saver AW18ECB7 (not found on the list) \015\012\015\012My old Fredrich (23,000 BTU and 208-230v) widow unit was not blowing cold air; just the fan would turn on. I bought the new A/C (18,000 BTU and 208-230v) and installed it. It is for a 625 sq ft area that includes a kitchen. \015\012\015\012The new one would not power on. (There is a reset and test button on the plug w/ a green light to indicate it was working). The green light would not turn on and the A/C would not power on. I plugged the old A/C back in to make sure the outlet was working - it was working fine. \015\012\015\012I took the A/C back and got a replacement - same model. I installed it today, but it also will not power on. \015\012\015\012The house was built in 1937 and the wiring was redone approximately 1977. The outlet is on it's own breaker and rated for 20A-230v. \015\012\015\012The plug looks like this: II\015\012The outlet looks like this: IL \015\012\015\012I don't understand why it will run the old one that is much bigger BTU's and the same volts...\015

Answers :

Green light comes on when reset, when try to test goes out, power does not come on at all
The plug fit - wasn't the problem. Problem fixed: outlet did not have full power.

I have a model # faa065p7a A/C The power cord burned out with some sparks by the test and reset part. Called frigidaire and they said you could not replace the power cord and had to buy a new unit. This AC is not very old and worked fine. Is this true because I see that power cords are for sale and never heard of the whole unit going bad from the power cord. Did the electronics fry or was I talking to the wrong person? They were not very helpful and just said to buy a new air conditioner.


Hello, i have replaced cords on many window units so yes you can replace the cord. I believe if you go to a online appiliance website they will have the cord you need. I have found this website online with frigidaire parts http://www.repairclinic ... Frigidaire FAC124 wall/Window Air Conditioner

Hi, you do have a dead short in the control side of the system. Good that you bought a transformer with the breaker. Most people don't and will smoke several of them. Anyway, it is a split system. If it was iced up, it must be a heat-pump, not gas fi ... Air Conditioners

I have an old GE Weathertron which still works (except I need a new fan). The unit is about 30 years old, but some goob from Dave's H & AC screwed it up and they had to send a new guy (who apparently had some experience) and he basically spent all day replacing most of the internals for free. The problem is the 18" fan has a bent blade. I can get a new one, but I just can't get the old one off. I removed two hex screws (set screws) from the hub on top, but it still wont budge. Is the hub on top


Use sandpaper to sand the motor shaft.Then,Lots of WD40 on the shaft and hub. Wait for it to penetrate.Then hold the shaft with pliers between the hub and the motor and twist the fan blade right and lft to loosen it.Try and pu ... GE Air Conditioners

I have 2 Frigidaire window a/c units, model# fam18eq2a1. The landlord tells me they are brand new. Both units have the same symptoms: about 30% of the time they power on and function normally. The rest of the time nothing happens when you hit the power button. After checking the appliance plug in to make sure is plugged in, I then hit the reset button, afterwhich the digital display lights up completely, beeps, and then usually goes dead, although 1 out of 15 times it will power on and cool f

Carrier 38CK036330 Hi,  I totally know nothing about air conditioning. It's getting so hot in LA and we really need help since our house has a 18-month old child. We have a Carrier 38CK036330 central unit, and it's not cooling the house as we'd like it to. It's already about 13 years old and we are looking for a new one to replace it.

It sounds as if you have a multi-tap transformer. That is, the primay voltage can be 120, 208/240, 480. Most all transformers have their legends printed righ on them. Usually the 4 wires are a common and the other wires to the incoming voltage by i ... Air Conditioners
