I have a P12BA Friedrich portable room air conditioner my

Customer Question

I have a P12BA Friedrich portable room air conditioner my son brought over. It worked the first night and then when we went to turn it off it was hard to turn off. Next morning went to turn it on and it did not light up the display board and only thing that lit up was the timer .08. Does the timer reveal a code when it isn't working properly? My husband ordered a PC board Gabbert tech said most probable cause not the display board. My husband put in the Pc board and it didn't work. The same code .08 comes up.
Off and on switch does not work at all. My question is how do I fix the problem and is there a trouble shooting guide you recommend to learn more about the unit. My son doesn't have the manual that came with it originally. Thank you
