If a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a current limit has been breached, the unit will return to standby mode and display either "CA" for average current limit trip or "CI" for instantaneous current limit trip.

Average current trip occurs if there is a 2 second average of current draw greater than 5.55 Amps at the motor windings.

Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 Amps instantly at the motor windings.

This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector or motor controller. Overloading the unit may cause this problem.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

What means c1 on aeg oko lavamat 74500


Hello!

Error C1 on AEG Lavamat usually means that there is a trouble with water filling. The required water level is not reached.

I reccomend you contact your local Service
Force Centre.

Here is the link to a manual of a similar AEG Lavamat waching machine (a "trouble shooting" part). Hopefully, it will help!

Washing machine pulls ca then c1 code. seems to be the calypso action problem. does it need a new motor


Hi,
The C1 code signifies "Average current limit Or Instantaneous current limit."

If a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a current
limit has been breached, the unit will return to standby mode and
display either CA for average current limit trip or C1 for
instantaneous current limit trip.

Average current trip occurs if there is a 2 second average of current
draw greater than 5.55 amps at the motor windings.

Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 amps
instantly at the motor windings.

This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or
motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem. "


Please check down the drive motor to resolve the issue.
Have a blessed day!
Thanks!

Error code c1 of ca


The C1 error is displayed when the motor tries to pull more than 26 amps to run.

This indicates a problem with the motor or motor controller.

Overloading or excessive suds can also cause this error.

If you like to make a few more checks then the image below contains the instructions for entering the diagnostic test mode.

Its a short cycle that runs all of the components so the operation of each can be checked.

I hope this helps but an intermittent C1 error can be hard to pin down.

I have a c1 error on an AEG oko favorite 50700 What dies this error mean


I don't understand why replies talk about the C2 and C3 errors... The problem is C1! I have the C1 error. I start a programme, it does the draining cycle to check empty then starts filling. MI can hear water entering but it sounds slow at a low flow rate. If I leave it going, eventually the programme stops and the error is displayed: C1 Opening and closing the door allows the programme to continue. I get the error after the various stages of the programme, when it is filling for the next wash or rinse. So it's 4 or 5 times I think during the programme. Now, if I help the filling... When the appliance is filling, I open the door, and poor in a kettle or two of water, then the error does not happen (the fill is within the time expected by the appliance?) So I am thinking one of two things is wrong: 1) I have a flow rate problem BEFORE the water connection to the appliance. E.g. It is blocked somehow. 2) There is something which opens/closes the "tap" within the machine which is causing the flow rate to be low and it does not fill quickly due to that. No idea which of these two, but I did disconnect the hose of the supply and check that water flows quickly from it into a bucket, so I am thinking there is something inside the machine which "opens the tap" and it's not doing a good job of it. Anyone got a clue?

Washer calypso


Unplug your machine for 5 min then turn on spin to remove water. If water won't go you have a bad water pump. Code FL refers to a low water flow problem ( won't fill fast enough ) or old water still in tub.
Next you need to turn off the water ot the unit and remove the water lines. Look into the water inlets on the washer to see if the dirt screens are clogged and not letting water into you unit at a fast enough pace.
Your unit has a water level sensor and should agitate when full, but I believe your machine might be "timing out" i.e. not filling as fast as your unit expects so even though it doesn't fill all the way it begins agitating because it has taken too long to fill. Good Luck!

Calypso Washer, seems unable to turn drum or agitate


I haven't had the problem with the washer tearing up my clothes as of yet but I have with the c1 error code. According the the manual there are three possibilities. 1- Bad drive motor 2- Bad thermal protector ( solution to fix replace the drive motor) 3- Bad motor control board. The last one was what needed to be replaced in mine.
