Question about Sharp AF-S120FX Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Shutting off I have the AC on cool at 77F, one fan selected, and energy saver on. After it runs for a few hours, it shuts off but the display is still lit with the above settings. When I press the energy saver to turn it off, the AC comes back on. Alternatively, if I power the AC off (display is off) and power it back on, it runs normally (but don't know whether it shuts down again shortly). Any ideas? Should I reset it?

I would try the same solution as the E1 error code, Not sure if it will work, but it seems to be the same issue


1. Power down the air conditioner using the "power" button on the front
panel.
2. Unplug the air conditioner from the wall socket.
3. Hold the front panel "power" button down and plug the air
conditioner in. Continue to hold the power button down as the machine
goes through a brief test sequence (fan & compressor each come on
briefly, etc). There is a "beep" sound at the end of the test sequence,
and the machine will be off. At this point, you can release the power
button.
4. Unplug the air conditioner.
5. Plug the air conditioner back in.
6. Congratulations! You should now be able to operate the air
conditioner normally for another 720 hours, but only if you followed
the instructions above EXACTLY.

I have a Hampton Bay AC. It is 18,000 BTU. It is 230 volts. The EER is 9.7 and it is 8.3 to 9 amps. When I use energy mode on the AC it blows warm air. What gives? Just cool mode and it blows cool.


Hi Paul,
  • Energy Saver Mode most likely shutdown the compressor and Fan Only will be running to recirculate Ambient air into the room.
  • Make sure there is no Port or Vent that is open on your unit and would let hot air from outside be mixed in with the ambient air especially if it is hot outside.
  • Also refer to the troubleshooting section of your owner's manual.
Good Luck,
JP

My Dometic AC on my travel trailer cools well but I cannot set the fan to stay on when the compressor cycles off. Can a different switch or board be installed to allow the fan to stay on?


An energy saver setting is what it sounds like. Turn off energy saver feature and fan should run 100% and compressor cycle on-off separately.If not familiar with energy saver setting .make sure it has one or not before disregarding this.

How can I turn on the energy saver on my LWHD2400HR air conditioner? There is no switch on the A/C, only an indicator light that says "Energy Saver"?


The Energy Saver mode is activated by using the hand held remote control, that comes with the unit. Pressing the Energy Saver button activates it. Once activated the fan will shut OFF when the the compressor does. After which, about every 3 minutes the fan will turn ON to check the room air to determine if cooling is needed.

It sounds like, you're missing the hand held remote control?

Ac unit keeps reading fl or full. every 2-3 hours. auto clean button drains out about 1/4 a gallon of water and then stops draining. turn back on ac & repeat process every 2-3 hours. I have tried...


After reading over the Owner's Manual for your unit, I wonder if you are operating it in the Cool & Dry Mode. If that's the case, the dehumidifier is in operation, which would account for having to drain the unit every 2 to 3 hours. Ideally, the Cool and Dry Mode should only be operated for about an hour, when the unit is first started . Removing the humidity will allow the AC function to cool more effectively. But, it is not necessary for it to remain in Cool & Dry mode all the time. Because the AC itself unit will remove some humidity too.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the issue of having to drain the unit every 2 to 3 hours

This goldstar air conditioner model is WG2405RY7 It has an energy saver, but the unit just keeps running and won't shut off, everything else works.


Doe's the temp reach the set point? If not then it will run until it doe's. If you set the stat warmer and the fan keeps running after compressor shuts off check to make sure it is in power saver mode. Most AC units keep more even temp when fan is left on.

Thermostat ?


I'm thinking the bi-metal is working, that's why you can hear a click, but the contacts are welded together. The bi-metal doesn't have enough strength to break the weld. Time for a new thermostat.

Haier ESA 3185 AC won't cool; makes escalating loud vibrating noise near front panel/ filter


Have someone check the run capacitor of this unit. If the run capacitor is bad over shorted it can cause the unit to run and short cycle on a current overdraw. This makes for an electrical imbalance in the compressor motor. Next step is the compressor is faulty.

Lg 10000 btu ac wall unit


if you remove the front cover you should see a little sensor with a wire. you need to make sure it has not fallen off its bracket or came off form the evaporator. if it looks to be ok and mounted correctly, you may have a bad sensor and it is not able to tell the temp and not shut the unit down. also to on very hot and humid days even though you have it set to energy saver it senses it still needs to run. If you turn the thermostat up when its on the energy saver will it shut off? and if you do the same on the regular setting will the comressor shut off and the fan stay running? Let me know and I can go from there. Thanks
