Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Error Message I have a DeLonghi Pinguino PAC L90 portable air contitioner - last night there were thinderstorms and the electricity went out for a second. Now the unit flashes a message "Fsomething (looks like an L with a line through the middle)". I have unplugged the unit for several minutes but the message still flashes when I plug back in. No response when I depress any of the buttons on the unit. Is there a reset button hidden somewhere? Is there a more serious problem? Help!!


Answers :

It's actually "Ft", which means "Full Tank".  The instruction manual says to drain the internal safety tank through the drain hoses.\015\012
\015\012To drain the tank, open the cover on the rear of the appliance.\015\012Pull out the 2 drain hoses, take off the caps, and let all the residual water flow out. \015\012When all the water has been drained, place the caps back on the hoses and put the hoses back inside.\015\012
\015\012It also says you need to clean the filters and let them dry thoroughly before putting them back.\015\012
\015\012This is also the procedure for "End of Season Operations."\015\012
\015\012Hope this helps!
I have a DeLonghi Pinguino PAC L90. When the Ft message comes on I drain the 2 hoses on he back and replace the caps. Each time I have returned to find a large puddle of water under the unit with the Ft message on. Help it is ruining my floor.

Goodman a/c j41 fan not running, turned off and on at fuse box, took a look at the box next to a/c unit and opened the box on the wall and pulled the plug and pulled the plastic panel off, there is no fuses. So i put back together and turned the a/c unit on, now at thermostat the snowflake is no longer flashing, some cold air coming out of vents, but outside a/c unit fan still does not run.


First you need to disconnect all power. Try spinning the fan blade, if it spins freely, then try moving the shaft from side to side to see if there's any side play. If not then the bearings are OK. If there seems to be some drag when your spinning th ... Goodman CKL42AR42 Air Conditioner

My fridgedaire window unit A/C and heat won't come on. I had replaced an outside light fixture a couple of weeks ago and had turned off the circuit breaker that affected this unit too.

I have a Sharp portable room air conditioner model CV-P10NC. The power plug RESET button and TEST button will not click in order to check out the power plug as the unit will not turn on. They did test O.K. at first but the unit would still not come on.

My window unit fell out of the window and hung by the power cord that was still plugged into the wall. I was able to grab the cord and pull it back up. I reattached the power cord and now every time i turn on the power it trips the breaker. is this the shorted power switch where can i get one.


Its most likely is not the switch. It is most likely the cord though. Due to the excess strain on the cord it has probably cut through the rubber coating on the wire and connected to the frame and grounded the hot lead. Fix the cord and ... Frigidaire FAX054P7A Wall/Window Air Conditioner

I have three window ACs in my entire mobile home(double wide). One at the back of the house, one in the middle and one in the front. Each one is plugged into its own outlet.

I have a goldstar air conditioner model R0801E that starts spraying water from the fan outlet after it has run for approximately 1 hour. I have checked the drain and it is not plugged, nor is there any obstruction to it, I have in fact drilled a hole into the 'formed' drain channel on the bottom which leads to the drain nipple located on one back corner. i have tried tilting the unit in order that gravity might assist and it still blows water enough that i can't use it or it will ruin the wall,

I replaced my outside unit with a 3 ton goodman heat pump unit. My old unit was a 3 ton bryant and the compressor burned up in it.

My portable a/c continues to leak water from the bottom when in use. I have a hose attached to the spout in the back, but it still leaves a puddle and almost nothing drains out the back. It's a sunbeam sca102rpc1, 10,000 btu model. I have the unit level on a few 2x4's off the ground, so the drain off from the spout is all down hill. but yet the unit must be leaking because the water is in a puddle at the bottom under the unit, not the drain pan.
