    same problem with a 42kg5a3405b... it starts ok, then erratically --because could be any time, minutes, hours, etc-- flashes 5 times and closes itself. maybe it would start again but sometimes it doesnt. this model is 220v, cooler only, split system. if i reset its mains breaker outdoors it will "reset" and could make it work since when it falls into the blink state on/off via remote wont work. no error codes chart in the indoor unit nor user manual

    Where is this led at on thermostat, indoor or out door unit , or is this a package unit all in one?
    Is it set to cool or heat? Are you cooling or heating when this happens?
    Do you see or hear anything different?
    Are these flashes of the same time length or quick then longer or vice versea?
    Is it gas heat? Electric Heat?

This problem is outdoor unit issue. Blinking 4 times in carrier highwall unit means Compressor drive malfunction. Possible cause are the following: - Stuck up or grounded compressor. - Magnetic contractor in outdoor unit is defective or indoor unit relay supplying outdoor unit is defective. - No power supply going to outdoor unit.

As i am a mechanic in sydney australia, i can honestly say that the chance of you getting help via carrier is very very slim... the reason it is doing that is that it has a legitimate problem unfortunately i have a carrier 42g250h which is flashing 4 times aswell... i have been waiting now 10 working days for carrier to call me to tell me what the problem is... if you can afford to do it, throw the damn thing out and buy a new one, i hate to say it but even an LG will work better than these heaps of ****

This type of unit does not drain into the outside unit. It drains into a nearby interior drain, or just to the outside near Inside unit. If the unit is cooling properly, you're ok.

My Carrier mid wall split runs for 5 min on heating then it stops and then the green power led flaches 6 times


I'm no expert on mini splits but I do have one and I'm not sure if you're aware of this but the heating mode doesn't function if the temperature drops below a certain point. Look in your manual or do a search on line for your exact model number and you'll find the exact specifications.

My split system starts and in 2 min turns of and


Hi, the Led lights do indicate a problem with the unit. Not knowing what the flashes are, and you can find out what they mean, you will need to find the chart either on the indoor unit behind the cover by this Led light on the circuit board or could be on the outdoor unit panel. This chart will have error codes listed on it and according to how many flashes are taking place or if they are long slow or fast ect., such as this example, 3 flashes stops for a min and flashes 3 times again. It will lead you down the numbered chart to find this, like33 or 3-3 ect. This will tell you what is going on. Check this out and get back to me. If you have the manual, it should tell you. I will check back tomorrow to see what you have found, so contact me.

Carrier Gas Furnace runs fine randomly stops blowing LEDs flash


That blinking light may be the diagnostic light. Count the blinks next time it fails. Carrier units will have two different blinks depicting the error code such as one blink followed by a pause than 3 blinks giving you an error code of 13. Then look at the wiring diagram, it will have an error code chart telling you where to start with your diagnosis. You already know that if you remove the cover it erases the error code, so look thru the small window first.

Carrier split 42G250HF-1(indoor unit


I'm not sure exactly what unit you have and what controls you have installed on the unit. But....there usually is a flash code schematic on the unit. Usually on the inside of the blower compartment cover. This should tell you what is wrong with the unit. It could have a low voltage short somewhere and is loosing the call for cool. So the answer can be a possible yes to your question but without knowing the flash code, it's hard to tell from my point of view. You might end up calling a service professional out to check it.
