    Hello I just totally cleaned my 5000 but room a/c window unit. When I was finished and tested it out the reset button button would not stay down. So it would not work at all. I took the reset and test plug a part and found out a tiny white plastic shielding which covered a small copper coil in the center. I resealed it back on and assembled everything in the plug. Now the unit works fine except I can not get the test button to work?? Thank you

    1. Hello David!

      It sounds like you may have damaged the test button when you were cleaning your AC unit. The test button is typically used to check the operation of the unit’s compressor, and it may not work properly if it is damaged.

      If you are still able to get the unit to work, then the test button is not essential. However, if you would like to try to fix it, you can try the following:

    2. Check the connections to the test button. Make sure that the wires are properly connected and that there is no damage to the wiring.
    3. Clean the test button. The button may be dirty or obstructed, which could be preventing it from working properly.
    4. Replace the test button. If the button is damaged, you may need to replace it.

    I have a Magnavox and the compressor isn’t on most of the time and the house is very hot! The reset switch on the end of the cord will not trip and turn it off anymore but I don’t think that is the problem. The compressor will only seem to stay on when it is cooler at night (not helping in the day time! e

    1. Hey Erich,

      In this case, I suspect you should check your “Thermo setting” and clean/replace the air filter. Though there are many things that may cause this issue, somehow I feel you’ll be able to solve it
