Window A/C not working

    I have, one of many window units, a Frigidaire 12-15k btu (is that the right lingo). Its fairly new. It is getting power, it sounds as though it wants to run, but there is no fan? I was wondering if this might be a simple belt or something more extensive, better to replace for now.

    Signed, I know nothing about power, marji

    window A/c not working

    Should I bother servicing it, or should I just replace it.

    I just bought 3 window units for $19, one of them a 12 year old 10 seer 15,000 btu model. Look around for used ones, it's probably cheaper than fixing yours.

    While it's a fairly new 15,000 btu unit, it won't be worth a service call + parts IMO. I would call your local tech hvac school and see if they'll look at it for you(you bring it to them) as part of a lesson to their students(don't work on window A/Cs ) It might be worth the price of a small electrical part to fix.
    If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.
