Re: kenmore air conditioner #25370156000 wont turn off
My educated guess is this would be a relay on the (or one of the) circuit boards. If you can access the internals parts try tapping on the boards which might allow the relay to release. A relay controls large amounts of current with small amounts of current (this means the controls can be small, working with small currents, also low voltages to control the relay on/off function.

1. Unplug unit.
2. Hold down power button while plugging in unit. It will do a short self-test and then beep. leaving unit off.
3. Release power button and unplug.
4. Plug in again and turn on normally. This should last for about 720 hours, at which point the E1 error will come back and you need to follow the procedure again. (You might as well clean the air filter at this point just in case it really needed it...)
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
With any luck, if you turn the unit OFF and unplug it for a day or so, it may dry out enough for the sensor that got soaked, when you hosed it out, will dry and the unit will work again. But, my instinct tells me, there's a very slim chance of that happening. As, it was probably still wet when you plugged it in and turned it ON.
If you have just installed this unit in your window for the
season, you may want to wait a day or so, for everything in the unit to
settle, and try again. You make have shaken it up a bit too much. If not.....sounds to me like it is kicking out on high head pressure. This happens when refrigerant gets too low, or there is air in the refrigerant system. There is nothing you can do to solve this problem, except take it to a repair shop. If I am correct what happens is you turn the unit on, and the fan and compressor start simultaneously, then after a few seconds (maybe up to a minute) the compressor kicks off, and the air gets warm, then the compressor kicks on for a few seconds, and we repeat. This is actually a safety mechanism for the compressor motor so it does not run without refrigerant. (That would destroy the pump.)
sounds like 1 of 2 problems. first, check the condensor coil for dust, dirt, lint on the inside of the unit. this is the coil thats on the back of the unit that is outside. it can be sprayed out with a garden hose. make sure the unit is unplugged and let it drain for a hour or so. if the coil is not dirty, then the unit has developed a freon leak and needs to be serviced.
If the unit is remote control try to unplug the supply of the unit(or off and on again circuit breaker) and operate the unit again. If it wont work then call a qualified technician to check the unit, maybe there is a problem with the unit control.
This is from Sharp's website...apparently an addendum to the instruction booklet. When you get E1:
Unplug.Press and keep pressing the On/Off button on the unit.Plug unit back in.Wait until unit beeps (about 5 seconds) then release On/Off button.Unplug unit.Plug unit back in. You're good to go.
Try unplugging the machine, waiting a couple minutes, then holding down the power button as you plug it back in. Hopefully you will hear a "beep". Then unplug it again, wait a couple minutes, and plug it back in.
This procedure works for clearing the "E1" code from some of the Sharp models, so maybe you will get lucky and the same manufacturer made the control board in your machine!
Couldn't hurt to try it out. ;)
