  • rollz8ball Jul 15, 2008

    Yeah, me too. Please tell me what to do. I got real cold so I decided to turn the air down. Well, none of the buttons would work. I couldn't even turn the damn thing off. So, I just unplugged it. Then when I plugged it back in, it would NOT work at all!!! What the hell happened??? When I plug it in each time, all I get is an "E1" in the termostat window. This is ********. Please help! I can't live without air.

Unplug it. Wait a few minutes. Hold in the Power button while plugging it back in and keep the button held down until a beep is heard (~5 sec). Unplug the air conditioner, then plug it in again.
Note: some units require using the Mode switch, rather than Power.

Your power botton went bad. I took the circuit board out and chanded the timing switch with the power switch and the E1 went away and the AC unit works fine now.

I read on another site that there is no solution. Word for word the person stated that the damn thing was "fried." and to take it back. Not sure what he meant by taking it back? Certainly he was prematurely assuming that the AC unit was new. Well, mine is not new. Actually, I bought it a year ago today, and it blew out today. Tomorrow it will be out of warranty. Imagine that ****!! I have owned 3 AC's in the last 5 years and each time they blew out, it was on July 15th, which is also my birthday. Three birthdays ruined by this ****, and then this is even speaking of the ODDS of this happening three times on the same day. Come on now, where are my lottery winnings???

Is it possible you still have the owner manual? It will have the reset codes for you listed. Also, check the filter, make sure it is clean and that the evap and condenser are clean as well. Thanks

What does the code E1 mean on my sharp a/c


It is a clean filter message. make sure filter is cleaned and reset as follows:
1. Power down the air conditioner using the "power" button on the front
panel.
2. Unplug the air conditioner from the wall socket.
3. Hold the front panel "power" button down and plug the air
conditioner in. Continue to hold the power button down as the machine
goes through a brief test sequence (fan & compressor each come on
briefly, etc). There is a "beep" sound at the end of the test sequence,
and the machine will be off. At this point, you can release the power
button.
4. Unplug the air conditioner.
5. Plug the air conditioner back in.

How do i fix E1 error


  • Press the "Power" button to turn off your unit and then remove the filter from the filter panel on the side or front of your air conditioner. Refer to your manual if you are unsure where the filter on your unit is located.
  • 2 Inspect the filter. If it is dirty, brush off dirt, debris and lint. If it is really dirty, wash it with mild soap and water and allow it to dry completely. Reinsert it into its compartment. If your filter is worn out or damaged, purchase a replacement filter from an appliance or hardware store and replace the old one.Turn on the air conditioner. Move to the next step if the LCD continues to display the E1 error code.
  • 3 Check for a reset button on your air conditioner and press it to reset your unit. Some of the newer air conditioners have reset buttons to restore the default factory settings. Press the "Power" button on the front panel of your air conditioner to power down your unit if it does not have a reset button. Unplug the unit from the electrical outlet. Leave the air conditioner off for several hours to see if it will reset.
  • 4 Plug your air conditioner back into the electrical outlet and turn it on. If your air conditioner is still displaying the E1 error code, turn it off and contact a qualified technician because the room thermistor responsible for detecting room temperature may be defective.

    What does E1 message mean?


    The E1 error code could mean multiple things. The most common fault with the air conditioner is a stuck button on the access panel. Gently push each button in and out to ensure none of them are stuck. The panel may have malfunctioned due to moisture. See that the air conditioner is properly installed, and then leave it off for a few hours so the moisture can dry up.

    Ac shuts off E1 error message


    E1 Error Code -->> Clean Filter

    Owners of Sharp air conditioner models AF-S60FX, AF-S80FX, AF-S85FX, and AF-R80FX may experience the following (highly annoying) issue. After 720 hours of fan operation, the error code E1 will appear on the seven segment LED temperature display. This error code is intended as a reminder for the user to clean the air filter. However, because the procedure outlined in the user manual does not clear this error code as indicated, and the appliance has a nonvolatile memory that cannot be reset by simply unplugging it, the user of the appliance will become mightily frustrated, standing in potentially sweltering heat watching the appliance repeatedly shut down in the midst of operation with the "E1" display flashing.

    Believe it or not, that is what it does: if you unplug it to remove the "E1" code from the display, and plug it back in and re-start it, it will simply run for anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours, and then merrily shut down again with the same flashing "E1" code.

    Many people at this point, having put the manual under the canary or some such, will simply return the unit and never buy another Sharp air conditioner. But for the tech-savvy and search-adept, I offer the following procedure to clear the nefarious E1 indication, and obtain another 720 hours of cooling bliss:
    1. Power down the air conditioner using the "power" button on the front panel.
    2. Unplug the air conditioner from the wall socket.
    3. Hold the front panel "power" button down and plug the air conditioner in. Continue to hold the power button down as the machine goes through a brief test sequence (fan & compressor each come on briefly, etc). There is a "beep" sound at the end of the test sequence, and the machine will be off. At this point, you can release the power button.
    4. Unplug the air conditioner.
    5. Plug the air conditioner back in.
    6. Congratulations! You should now be able to operate the air conditioner normally for another 720 hours, but only if you followed the instructions above exactly.

    If you doubt the veracity of this information, or it does not work as expected, you can get it directly from the source at: 1-800-237-4277 (Sharp customer service line). You'll need to call between 7 AM and 7 PM US Central time, and have your model number and serial number ready.

    Air conditioner will only run a short time then shut off.


    Manula or online site will tell you what e-1 is, I would think it is a power outtage reading and unit needs to be reset. Dont be afraid to call your units manufacturer and ask tech how to reset unit with an E1 error.

    Air conditioner has to be reset --E1


    If your a/c unit is portable,and E1 code most always is "air filter cleaning time" or" water level to high ".
    To reset air filter interval turn unit off at power switch then unplug.Hold power switch down while plugging in....unit will go through a short self check then beep.Release power button after beep.Unit should now be reset.
    To reset water level....just drain some.....not all.
    Most portables use water for increase cooling......so leave some in.
