Question about Sharp AF-S80DX Air Conditioner

1 Answer

AF-S680MX When I turn it on Cool, there is a loud buzzing sound every 8-10 seconds which lowers the lights in the room, drains the power. The machine is new - we've only used it about 6 times.

I have a Sharp AF-S80FX A.C. unit. Whether on cool or fan the unit keeps tripping the breaker on the plug with an E1 message. The filter has been removed and cleaned, but it really wasn't dirty.

It doesn't turn on at all

Check to see if there is power getting to the air conditioner. If it is a 110-volt unit, plug a lamp or other device into the same outlet the air conditioner is plugged into. If there's no power, check the fuses or circuit breakers. If there's still no power, you will need to contact a qualified electrician to restore power to the outlet.

If there is power to the appliance but it is still completely dead there may be a problem in one or more of the following areas:

The temp setting shows 78 degrees,lower to 72 degrees /it stays for 15 sec and returns to 78 degrees no codes

you may not be giving the a/c enough time to cool down to 72 the reason it goes back to 78 is that is the temp in the room at that moment put on 72 and give it about 20-30 min. to see if this helps

Water tank fills up every 3hrs

The amount of water that is getting extracted from the air in the room is based on how humid the air is. The good news is your unit is really getting quite a bit of moisture out of the air and as such, is working well to cool your room.

It is working as designed. You may want to see if you can connect a hose to a drain port (if yours has that included) to let the unit room longer without the need to drain the condensate (water) every 3 or so hours.

Hope this helps and best regards!

There's a buzzing sound coming from my central air conditioner unit outside. The fan is quiet but I hear a buzzing sound. Should that be happening? Sounds like there's something loose.

Things that are not broken: The big relay that powers the compressor often hums or buzzes when the unit is running. Several brands of heat pumps keep their reversing valve "on" any time the thermostat is set for "cool". They buzz, too.

If something really is loose, the only way to fix it is to look at the machine and take off panels until you find what is buzzing.

Fan runs, shuts down on cool

Sounds like a power supply problem. There is enough power to run the fan but when you turn it to cool the current draw by the compressor drops the voltage. The lower power light is telling you the answer to your problem.

Doesn't Cool Entire Room/Space - also very noisy

It sounds like it is cooling a little bit. So I will suggest to you that it may be low on refrigerant. I assume that you have cleaned the filter because you followed the manuals instructions.

The clicking and buzzing sounds may be that the compressor is pulling high amps and failing. Otherwise I have heard similar noises when a capacitor fails. You will probably need a technician to make the repairs.

I may not be of much help but I may be able to guide you into some diagnosos. If there is a communication problem between the inside and outside unit, both on the inside and outside units a colored LED will bling 5 times then pause for 3 seconds. The 33 and 44 codes are confusing to me because I have never seen this. Try resetting the outside unit with no call for heat or cool from the inside unit. After about 20 seconds, restore power to the outside unit. Go in and turn on the remote and make sure you lower the cool setting more than degrees cooler than the room temp. After 3 minutes the outside unit should turn on. If you get an error code of either 1, 2 or 5 blinks document it for the technician. If you continue to get your 33 and 44, you have a bad control board. If all else fails, press and hold the button located on the lower left side of the art unit and hold for about 5 seconds. If it still no longer works, now you will need the help of someone who knows these units.
