Ok, it can be two things.

  1. The outside unit needs to be washed with a water hose to rinse any dirt and debris that can cause a restriction in airflow over the outdoor coils. If they are allowed to get dirty, they can cause the compressor to overheat and shut down on thermal lockout.
  2. The unit has a small refrigerant leak and the unit doesn't have sufficient refrigerant for the system to run thus causing the compressor to shut down on thermal lockout. The problem with this one is that generally the inside coil will freeze up and you will notice that.
Compressors generally won't come on at all if they are bad. You can have a compressor go bad and still be running, but it won't cool at all. A bad install can cause a compressor to fail as well. Generally if the compressor fails within the first 10 years, you can bet it's because it was a poor install. This means that a proper vacuum wasn't pulled on the unit before initial start-up. Hope this helps.

Hi.

Here error codes:ERROR CONTENTS

Here a complete service manual.

Here user manual.

Before doing anything else, power down the main circuit breaker, so to power down each unit and reset the electronics in the whole system. If all units have gone down at the same time, this will often solve the problem.

Regards.

Ginko.

After I replaced the pcb on my samsung air conditioner indoor unit it won't start and all 3 led's are blinking


I have had similar problems with Samsung. Apparently, the indoor board fits a lot of different models and each has to be "programmed" in to suit your model. Not sure what was wrong with your machine before but it has been known for these units to have a faulty outdoor fan motor which causes the outdoor board to fail as well. When this happens, the indoor unit will usually work fine for about a minute or 2 and then shut down, with lights flashing. The outdoor wont start at all. If these were the symptoms, I would suggest putting your old indoor PCB back and then getting a new outdoor fan motor and outdoor PCB.

I need the wiring diagram to wire a thermostat to the outside unit. Which wire goes where ? My Thermostat has four wires, green, red, white, and yellow. My Outside unit has three wires that are not...


The thermostat wires are this, Red is 24 volts hot, Yellow is cooling, Green is fan,indoor, and white is heat.The outdoor unit wires up to the indoor units terminal board, not the thermostat.The red will go to the R or red 24 volt wire at the furnace.The yellow goes to the yellow terminal at the furnace. You should only have 2 wires to connect at the outdoor unit. Try capping the blue off.It may not be used unless this is a dual transformer unit which you will need a tech to come out and rewire the furnace to make the outdoor unit a 2 wire set-up. This can be very complicated if this is the case. Connect these wires like I have said to the indoor unit, and it should work fine. Please keep me posted. This is only low voltage, so don't let it scare you. If nothing works, I would say that the blue wire outdoors is the 3rd wire for a 2 transformer unit, and will need to be rewired at the indoor unit for it to work, this I would have to be there to do.
