Customer Question
I have a Danby window...
I have a Danby window unit 5250 BTU. It stopped running and shut off. This has happened in the past and I unplugged the unit for a period of time and then plugged it in again. After a few minutes it beeped and I was able to restart it. (This is not the cleaning shut down where you remove the filter and clean it) On this occasion after unplugging the unit for a period of time and plugging it back in, the unit beeped 3 times but did not restart. Help!!
