Sharp Window AC problem

I have a Sharp 12,000 btu window Ac model AF-125RX. The fan runs but I the compressor is not running. It was working fine at the end of last season and was stored for the winter in a dry place. The unit is about 3 or 4 years old. Any ideas that someone with reasonable mechanical/electrical skill might try to fix it before throwing it out.

I'd start by seeing if the compressor is getting power when it should be running and go from there....

Unless I miss my guess..... you'll find the problem to be a defective solder or a defective relay on the control board.

Is it fixable.... yes if you're handy. The A/C will need to be taken apart to gain access to the control board. A service manual would be very helpful and can be purchased online.

If you want free detailed help..... I would require you to take the unit apart, take and post pictures of the control board.

As the say in the NFL, after further review... The compressor is running but no cold air. Time for a new unit. Costco Danby 12,000 btu 265.00
