Default Compressor shuts off if 80 degrees + outside
Model Number: FFTH1222Q2   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: Less than 1 year

I live in an apartment with a room air conditioner that has supplementary heat, Frigidaire model # FFTH1222Q2. The air conditioner is supplied by the property management co.

Below about 80 degrees, it will cool all afternoon and keep the apartment comfortable. Above 80 degrees, the compressor shuts itself off at varying intervals and compressor only runs maybe 5-10 minutes out of every 30. Because of this, over the course of the afternoon the temperature in the apartment roughly parallels the outside temperature. If I'm lucky it might be a couple degrees cooler than outside.

I have tried different thermostat settings such as 60, 72, 80 & 85 but it makes no difference to how it works.

One other possible clue is that when it gets cooler outside and the inside temperature reaches the thermostat setting, the compressor & fan both shut off. When it's warmer and it's malfunctioning, the compressor shuts off & the fan keeps running and blows warm or hot air. After 10-20 minutes of no compressor, the compressor will start up again and cooling resumes.

I have been going around & around with the property manager over this, but so far all they have done is continue to replace the air conditioner with the exact same brand and model. I'm now on my 4th unit and all 4 have done the same thing.

My hypotheses are a) there is a design flaw that let's it cool fine below 80 degrees but not above 80, b) there is an internal setting that could be adjusted, or c) it's just not big enough for the apartment and the compressor overheats and shuts itself off in self-protection mode.

Also, this model is not field repairable according to Frigidaire, which I also confirmed with a Frigidaire authorized servicer.

Help!
