Question about Frigidaire Heating & Cooling
Make sure the unit is level, this is very important. Check for blocked drain tube, which runs from the bottom of the drain pan under the cold coil to the outside. Clear tube with a piece of coathanger wire, be gentle.

I have a G.E. window air conditioner that kept giving me the E1 error code and would not allow the unit to turn on. After much frustration (and no results from following various tips on internet forums) I decided that I had nothing to lose by taking the thing apart. After all, it was way past the warranty period.
Make sure the unit is unplugged before doing any of the following.
When I took off the cover (not the front grill, but the metal cover over all the internal parts) I found a small black envelope stuck to the top of the styrofoam inside the unit. What an inconvenient place to find what the error codes mean! It obviously means they don't want the average customer to know any of this. "E1" means a short or open circuit, unit inoperable.
With that in mind I noticed that the black two conductor sensor wire was broken. This is the wire that leads from the sensor on the front fins to the control circuit board. After soldering it back together and wrapping it well with electrical tape the unit works perfectly.
If you don't wish to try soldering the wire, it can be unplugged from the circuit board. I would not be surprised if you can order a new sensor (with wire and plug attached) from a G.E. parts supplier.
By the way, this particular G.E. 6100 BTU air conditioner was manufactured by Samsung electronics.

Hello friend, thank you for your post!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire air conditioner, FAZ08HS1A, is not heating up or changing fan speeds. From what you are describing it sounds like a potential problem with the control board or sensor. I would suggest performing a reset on your air conditioner and you can do that by disconnecting power from it for ten minutes. Are you under warranty? I would consult with the manufacturer for further resolution regarding your air conditioner. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

The E1 code is an error code that appears on the LED temperature display of some digital air conditioners. The error code could mean anything from dirty air filters to a damaged room thermistor, a safety connected to your thermostat that detects room temperature. Troubleshooting the cause of this error code may improve your air conditioner's performance
