does the compressor come on and run?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
power shows settings but nothing else runs. There was internal packaging (styrofoam)but it says not to remove. no cool air.
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 6 years ago.
that would have nothing to do with this problem ,,, is this a 220 volt ac
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

i believe so. we were told to get a different outlet (20 volt with side plug) 1 - with ground underneath.

 

Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 6 years ago.
do you have a volt meter? because your only running on 110 and you need 220 for the fan and compressor to run
