The unit does not start?
If your portable air conditioner will not start, you should begin by emptying the water collection
reservoir (on units that use a reservoir). If the reservoir is full, a float switch will interrupt the
power to the unit.
Next, you should check to make sure that the air conditioner plug is fully inserted into the outlet
and that it's integrated circuit interrupter (if it has one) is not tripped. If the unit's circuit
interrupter is tripped, press the reset button to restore operation. If the reset button will not stay
engaged, there is a problem with the wiring in the unit. Unplug the unit and check for loose or burned
wire connections and repair as necessary.
Next, you should check the home's fuse or breaker to ensure that you have power supplied to the unit.
If the fuse is blown or the breaker is tripped, check to ensure that there are no other appliances or
electrical loads on that circuit. If the unit is on it's own circuit, you should unplug the unit and
check it's electrical wiring.
