Common Problems with the Friedrich Air Conditioner
#1 Air Conditioner is Not Cooling Properly
Friedrich air conditioners are known for their efficiency, so when your AC unit fails to sufficiently cool your room, you know there's an underlying problem with your unit. Check your air filter first. A dirty filter can restrict air flow, causing cooled air to get trapped within the unit. Wash the filter to see if the issue is resolved afterwards.
If the problem persists, check if the cooling operation is set to cool instead of the fan. If the settings are not the problem, then you may need to have one of our licensed technicians check your Friedrich AC for any refrigerant leaks that may be causing your AC unit to blow warm air instead of cold air.
#2 Air Conditioner Keeps Shutting Off
The Friedrich AC unit should be durable, and when the air conditioner is malfunctioning, it means a component within your AC unit is failing. However, short cycling can be caused by a dirty filter as well as filthy coils, or extremely hot temperatures outdoors that your AC thermostat cannot match.
Check the control panel for any error code that may pop up on screen, which would determine the source of the issue. When in doubt, contact us at Luce Aircon, and one of our licensed technicians will inspect your unit for any failing parts.
#3 Air Conditioner is Making Loud Noises
Air conditioners normally have a low, quiet humming or whirring noise due to the fan motor. However, loud noises indicate problems with your Friedrich AC. For instance, a loud, banging or rattling noise may indicate a bent fan blade, or debris rattling around your unit. A squealing noise indicates a compressor problem. Loud whirring means the fan motor is faulty. Determine the type of noise coming from your air conditioner, and have our technicians check your unit.
How to Reset Your Friedrich Air Conditioner
Reset Point: Reset Button
Your Friedrich air conditioner should have a reset button by its power cord built in to allow you to reset your unit after blackouts and power outages. To reset your Friedrich air conditioner, simply press the reset button while your unit is turned off, and wait for 5 seconds. Power on your air conditioner to see if this solves your problem.
