I have a G.E. window air conditioner that kept giving me the E1 error code and would not allow the unit to turn on. After much frustration (and no results from following various tips on internet forums) I decided that I had nothing to lose by taking the thing apart. After all, it was way past the warranty period.
Make sure the unit is unplugged before doing any of the following.
When I took off the cover (not the front grill, but the metal cover over all the internal parts) I found a small black envelope stuck to the top of the styrofoam inside the unit. What an inconvenient place to find what the error codes mean! It obviously means they don't want the average customer to know any of this. "E1" means a short or open circuit, unit inoperable.
With that in mind I noticed that the black two conductor sensor wire was broken. This is the wire that leads from the sensor on the front fins to the control circuit board. After soldering it back together and wrapping it well with electrical tape the unit works perfectly.
If you don't wish to try soldering the wire, it can be unplugged from the circuit board. I would not be surprised if you can order a new sensor (with wire and plug attached) from a G.E. parts supplier.
By the way, this particular G.E. 6100 BTU air conditioner was manufactured by Samsung electronics.

E1 indicates that a button on the control panel or the remote is stuck. I was instructed to unplug the unit and push each button at least 5 times, one at a time. Plug the unit back in, and this fixed my problem with error E1 and the unit works fine.
If problem still persists, call GE.
Thanks for using "Fixya".
