Is switch turned on?
Is thermostat set correctly?
Have you checked your home’s main fuses or

5. Has the time-delay fuse blown?
6. Has the local power failed?
Unit blows fuses:
1. Are time-delay fuses being used?
2. Is an extension cord being used? (Do not use an
extension cord to run your air conditioner.)
3. Are you waiting two minutes after turning cooling
circuit off before trying to restart unit?
Unit turns on and off. or does not cool room:
’
Is filter clean?
:: Are coils clean (both evaporator [inside] and
condenser [outside])?
3. Is there excessive moisture or heat (open vessel
cooking, showers, etc.)?
4. Try setting fan to higher speed.
5. Try setting thermostat to a cooler setting.
Operating sounds:
1. When your room air conditioner
is operating
normally, you will hear sounds such as:
l
Droplets of water hitting the condenser, causing
a “pinging” or “clicking” sound. Water droplets
help to cool the condenser.
l
Air movement from the fan, especially on high fan
speed setting.
l
Clicks from the thermostat cycle.
2. Sounds also may be caused by house construction
- such as vibration of the unit due to wall construction
or unsteady window mounting area.
