    yes, I tried that, looked like it was reseting and then went back to flashing E1... any other thoughts?

  • davidwakefie Jun 27, 2009

    Thanks for the heads up... The error is on the master thermostat, the slave shows C1... hadn't really paid much attention to that one so I'm not sure if that is a problem or not.

    I spoke with a friend and he suggested that the thermostat might just need to be swapped out. The system was working fine before but for some reason with the power outages (I think we had more than one in a short period of time), it might have somehow fried the thing.

    Any other thoughts or suggestions? I appreciate your input. In today's world, I am finding myself looking for anyway possible to keep costs down.

    ok, what exactly are we looking at here, sorry most of these posts are small residential, thought you just had a split system. Is this a residential version of the carrier comfort network, commercial? I'm guessing you are getting this error code on the stat? If you are can you give me a model number of the stat. Usually located on the inside. Or describe it to me, I may know which one you have.

  • seth veloso Jun 27, 2009

    ok, sorry aout the confusion, I just looked up your system and just like all the other carrier programs, this one is obsolete. How many stats do you have? is this only on one? is this on a master or slave stat. looking like there is a problem with the equipment controller. Might be hard to troubleshoot from here but I can try if you want to. let me know, I would be happy to help you with this. Carrier programs are ok definately improved over time but they stop making the stuff when they come out with a new version. I just paid $750 for a thermostat because of this but was able to keep customer from having to change entire system.

Teach me how to fix aircon says e1?

Hello, Mari-vick -

Without knowing the model number of your Aircon (an air conditioner, I believe), I can only provide you with generic instructions.

I hope you have the owner's manual and have checked there regarding the E1 error code.

If you do not have the manual, then . . .

Reasons for E1 error code, air conditioner:

1. Clean or replace the air filter. Note: Unplug the unit first. After cleaning or air filter replacement, plug the unit back in to the electrical outlet.

2. If the E1 error code still displays, it could mean one of the following problems:
- loose internal connections
- indoor and outdoor parts communications problem
- faulty control panel
Note: You may need an Aircon authorized repair technician for any such repairs.

Best wishes.

FDB4315LFC2 runs then stops and flashes pf ?

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FDB4315LFC2, starts and then stops, and flashes a "PF" code when it stops. The "PF" code is stating that there has been a power failure. There could be a possibility that your dishwasher is losing power mid-cycle. I suggest checking your home's circuit breaker, the wiring to your dishwasher, and if you have a cut-off switch, checking that as well. I also suggest resetting your appliance, by shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 20-30 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please let me know the error codes displayed on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

E1 error code LFWC38F6LS

Good Morning Chris,

I see that you are receiving an E1 error code on your wine cooler, model# LFWC38F6LS, even though your wine cooler is still working. This could possibly be a false error code, caused by a miscommunication between the different control boards inside your appliance. I suggest resetting it by either unplugging it or cutting the power at the circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes. If when you bring power back to your wine cooler, you are still receiving the E1 error code, I suggest contacting either the manufacturer or your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My mini split comfort star has an e1 error code, what does it mean

the E1 code is a communication error.First check for proper voltage at your condenser, then check all wire terminations between condenser and air handler. you should have LED's on your main board as well as your PFC board. if they show normal operation then chances are the main board is bad. be sure to check the ground .it must have a proper earth ground.

LG Dishwasher making grinding noise then blinking E1 code 10 minutes later

Well done by resolving this problem. The other way to avoid the siphoning problem through the drain hose is adding an air gap valve/connector (available at any hardware store). You can use it even if you don't have a garbage disposal in your kitchen sink. That will assure that you have the proper height of the drain hose.
Hope this helps!
