Frigidaire Air Conditioner Repair
Frigidaire is a leader in home cooling systems and can proudly boast as being the first company to manufacture a self-contained refrigerator, chest freezer and residential air conditioning unit. This is good news for consumers who have invested in a Frigidaire air conditioner for their home.
Parts as well as expert repairs are readily available throughout the United States and abroad meaning that regular servicing and maintenance of the unit or system are simple and efficient. The most common repairs that need to be implemented on a Frigidaire air conditioner include:
- Compressor ProblemsIf the Frigidaire air conditioner starts blowing warm air instead of cold air, it most likely a problem with the compressor, especially if the problem occurs within a year or two of purchasing and installing the unit. Compressor problems are the most reported complaint with Frigidaire air conditioning units.The compressor is perhaps the most important functioning part of the air conditioner and a range of different problems could occur that result in the malfunction. If the air conditioner is still under warranty, it is recommended to call the manufacturer to determine and resolve the problem. All costs for the repair, replacement parts and labor should be covered by the warranty.If the warranty has expired, call a repairman who specializes in Frigidaire air conditioners for a quote. The cost will be for the owners account.
- Electronic ComponentsMost modern Frigidaire air conditioners come with an electronic readout and adjustment panel that can be interacted with using a remote control device. Unfortunately, like most types of electronics, problems can occur with the electronic unit from the readout disappearing completely to an incorrect readout.It is important to run through some troubleshooting checks before calling a technician to repair the air con. First ensure that there is power to the unit (that it is plugged in) and that the batteries in the remote control are functioning. If the basic troubleshooting tips do not resolve the issue, call a repairman.
- ThermostatThis is another common problem that can occur with Frigidaire and other makes and models of air conditioners. The thermostat controls the temperature of the air that is blown out of the air conditioning vents. Keep in mind that Frigidaire air conditioners are designed to only function in temperatures exceeding 60 degrees Fahrenheit.Over time, the air being blown out of the air conditioner may be warmer than what the setting is on the electronic panel. This may be due to a malfunction with the thermostat. If this is the case, it is more than likely that the thermostat will need to be replaced.
- Blocked Ducts And VentsIt is inevitable that air vents and ducts will become blocked over time. Regular servicing of the air conditioner can prevent this from happening. Depending on how often the air conditioner is in use, the unit should be serviced anywhere from every 3 months to a year to sustain optimal functioning.
An air con should be serviced when you notice that it is not getting as cold as it did when it was first installed or if it becomes loud or makes noises while functioning. Frigidaire air conditioners are popular for their quiet operation. If your air con is not serviced regularly by a Frigidaire technician, it could negate your warranty.
It is important to note that these and other problems are not unique to Frigidaire air conditioners and that they can occur with other brands. No matter what the problem with air conditioning unit, it is always recommended to call out a technician or repairman who is skilled at repairing the make and model of air conditioner that you have installed.
