My Electrolux Kelvinator split system has turned itself off and all the lights on the indoor unit's display are flashing (Timer, auto, defrost & powe). I tried using the remote but nothing happens. I turned the unit off and back on using the main switch and it starts working again but only for a few minutes and then the same thing happens. I can't locate the model no, but the remote says 'Type R51K/BGE'. It's a large reverse cycle unit.

If the 4 lights are the indoor unit indicator lights, it is a fault code. Do some lights stay on or do all flash? What model is it? Kelvinator ( In Australia) are sourced from various OEM suppliers, different models will have different fault codes.
The Kelvinator technician came out and found that our gas was very low indicating that there was a leak somewhere - the gas should never deplete apparently (being a closed system). He checked inside and outside and couldn't find a leak so assumed it must have been an issue with the piping in the walls. He recommended not spending the money to get it repaired - he recommended it be replaced (not a cheap option but it was 11 years old and repairing wasn't likely to be cheap or a long term solution). So not sure if that is your problem but hope it helps!
I have same problem like yours to my newly installed Fujitsu multi-split system (the first time use since system installed 1 week ago). I rang the electrician who did the installation; he said it must be the units themselves nothing to do with electricity.
Okay, then I rang Fujitsu and their local service agent. They suggested me to switch off C/B for an hour to reset the units. I followed the instruction but the indoor units still did not respond to remote control...
It simply looks like no power supply to indoor units (they are hard-wired to the outdoor unit). So I used a multi-meter to test the power terminals of indoor units (Danger! If you have no idea about this, don't even try! ): it seemed no power supply even C/B is on. I turned to the isolator which next to the outdoor unit. The isolator was making arcing noise when I switched it on and off. The indoor units suddenly turned on for few minutes then died again.
So I figured out the problem is that crooked isolator. I called the unhappy electrician to replace the isolator. End story....
there is a auto switch button inside the indoor unit just above or on the side of digital display but you must open front panel to get access to it when you do, press that button which says auto once to cancell it from coming on than set your mode on the remote to heating then press start or on button on remote. be sure to set temp to atleast 30 degree before starting it
Judging by the model number, it is a Kelvinator unit. You can check if the remote works by using your phone or digital camera. When the camera is on, press a button on the remote whilst aiming the remote transmitter at the lens of your camera. If you can see a burst of light, the control works and the receiver on the indoor unit is the problem. If not, the remote is the problem. Hope this helps Mat
