E-1 error means coil sensor (cooling) defective. Replace it.

Testimonial: "Thanks heaps. I'll get back to the retailer for parts under warranty. Too far out of town for labour warranty but knowing the problem helps. thanks"
SOURCE: I have a Fisher's split
Fisher is a no-name brand that is manufactured in China by an company that manufactures parts for a lot of other brands, most notable Toshiba and Daikin.
In your case both errors are caused by a faulty pressure switch:
- E3 Outdoor Activation of high pressure switch
- E6 Outdoor Compressor start up error
What that means: something is blocking the flow of the coolant fluid, either a reversing valve that no longer operates correctly (is stuck not fully opened) or there is dirt in the lines; when the compressor starts the pressure it's forced to produce is larger than the rated one so the error code is triggered. If the pressure is larger than the maximum rated one the pressure switch will prevent the compressor from running and the second error code will be triggered. When you press the reset button the error is wiped and the compressor can start again. All of this has absolutely nothing to do with the temperature sensors, both in and out.
To fix that the circuit will have to be opened and the reversing valve and the pressure sensor tested - because this implies emptying the freon circuit it's a job that only a certified repairman can do, you will have to call one.
