Welcome to Just Answer!There is a wiring diagram glued to the inside of the unit on the electrical service panel.Black is the standard wire color for Line 1 powerWhite is the standard wire color of neutralGreen is the standard color for *ground.Look on the wiring diagram and it should show where each of those connect.Look all that over, let me know what you find. We can go from there.Phil
I can't see any wiring diagram, I just have the circuit board (left of the condenser) . If you mean a wiring diagram as a paper copy included with the unit, we bought this last year and it is long gone.
Hello again, it is unusual that a wiring diagram is not glued to the inside of one of the service panels... now-a-days though nothing surprises me.
Without a diagram we cannot be sure which wire goes where. if I could look at it, I might be able to tell where the wires go.Can you attach a very clear picture of the area with those wire connections, maybe I can tell from that.The green goes to a green colored screw on the frame of the unit... the only two other connections would to just 2 other terminals... one is Line 1 (black) the other is 'neutral' (white)... thats standard in the US....the card might be marked L-1 or L1 and N
If the end of the black wire is bare, then it pulled out of its 'clip' and that will still be attached to the terminal it belongs on... that would identify where the black goes.Let me know what you findWe can go from there until this resolves as long as you keep rating my responses *positively.
I was able to download the wiring diagram from www.frigidaire.com.(energy star 2012 room air conditioner).
So green is the ground. Black should be going to the empty terminal in the "black plastic box" (labeled RY7 in the diagram, but is RY6 on my circuit board; don't know if that makes much difference). There is a red wire connected to the other terminal on the "box". I would assume that the remaining white wire connects to P8 in the diagram. My only other concern is that one of the terminals on the "small tin can thing" (fan motor, compressor?) has no wire attached to it, and there aren't any left.
I've already given you the web site instructions to download the electrical diagram (July 20).
Hello again, I would need the full model number to look up a diagram for that unit.
'energy star 2012 room air conditioner' is the broad product line, generic to wide range of different air conditionersOr...much better than that, since you have already found a diagram that is at least close, if you can pull it up again then copy the entire URL address from the address bar at the top of that page, and paste it into this dialog box, I can just click on it.If you got the wrong diagram it may be that you did not put in the correct model number, or that the product line has changed. We won't know until I get the full model number.
CLICK HERE FOR EXAMPLES, note the model numbers for each AC unit in that range... its the bottom number under the picture of each AC unit..... each unit will be different from the others in some aspects.For instance the first one shown
Just got back from out of town.
The model # is FRA126 CT1
I was able to download the diagram at www.plessers.com/manuals/00023/233803.pdf
