Question about Fedders HF1012 Ductless Split Heat Pump Air Conditioner

3 Answers

My Fedders ductless split a.c. blows hot air with an E5 error msg

I have the 12,000 btu model. It starts blowing hot after about 20 minutes, when it shows the E5 message it 'locks up' and I have to turn it off at the breaker
One ac repairman, inexperienced with 'splits', said 'the lines are backwards - the hot is cold and vice versa'.He is 75% sure it's my capacitor and has offered to replace it - says it's a cheap, appr. $15 part

Another repairman, in a phone conversation, said there should be an error message listing on the wiring diagram inside one of the covers. Found the diagram but no error listing

    Freeon is ok. the 'capacitor' guy said my capacitor doesn't look burnt out ( according to him, they usually 'bulge' or show some leakage, etc) but it's still his 1st choice

    Do you suggest I let him try it?

    I'd like someone to access the necessary info to tell me what the 'E5' error message means

    Still need an ac expert who can access the info on this error code - others need not reply

Hi,

E5 - e5 is comp overload code

Try a hard reset first.Disconnect the machine for about 30 minutes and reconnect after that to see if the issue is resolved. Also try, after cleaning the filter, if I remember correct, unplug, wait for a minute, then hold down the power button and plug it back in, it should beep, and thats it.

Then, if you still need assistance:
1. Please contact your installer for warranty service.
2. If your installer is unable to assist in repair or if you need other assistance, contact CareCo for the name of an authorized servicer.

You may contact CareCo by email:
customerservice@fedders.com

by calling the following toll-free number:

Short of gas and tripping on auto-resetting low pressure control
Busted reversing valve (though compressor would run constantly)
Broken thermostat
Compressor drawing excessive amps and tripping auto-resetting overload
Condensor fan failed causing unit to trip on auto-resetting high pressure control
try cleaning the condensor while the units off with a brush + vaccum cleaner. Or, compressed air/co2 if you have it

Condenser Fan Motor Running ??
Is the condenser (Outdoor Coil) restricted in any way ?
Blocked condenser might be.

It is possible that a capacitor has burnt out. It may or may not send an error code. It is also possible that the freon levels are low.

Check the capacitor for the fan motor. You can do that with a multimeter with the capacitor test function or if the capacitor looks swollen then it is probably bad. Also, make sure the fan rotates freely by hand. Let me know if you need more help.
