SOURCE: E1 error code

highly annoying issue error code E1. After hours
of fan operation, the error code E1 will appear on the seven segment
LED temperature display. This error code is intended as a reminder for
the user to clean the air filter. However, because the procedure
outlined in the user manual does not clear this error code as
indicated, and the appliance has a nonvolatile memory that cannot be
reset by simply unplugging it, the user of the appliance will become
mightily frustrated, standing in potentially sweltering heat watching
the appliance repeatedly shut down in the midst of operation with the
"E1" display flashing.

Believe it or not, that is what it does: if you unplug it to remove the
"E1" code from the display, and plug it back in and re-start it, it
will simply run for anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours, and
then merrily shut down again with the same flashing "E1" code.

So you will come home to a hot bedroom, living room, etc. unexpectedly,
and you will NOT be amused, as I was not.

Many people at this point, having put the manual under the canary or
some such, will simply return the unit and never buy another Sharp air
conditioner. But for the tech-savvy and search-adept, I offer the
following procedure to clear the nefarious E1 indication, and obtain

1. Power down the air conditioner using the "power" button on the front
panel.
2. Unplug the air conditioner from the wall socket.
3. Hold the front panel "power" button down and plug the air
conditioner in. Continue to hold the power button down as the machine
goes through a brief test sequence (fan & compressor each come on
briefly, etc). There is a "beep" sound at the end of the test sequence,
and the machine will be off. At this point, you can release the power
button.
4. Unplug the air conditioner.
5. Plug the air conditioner back in.
6. Congratulations! You should now be able to operate the air
conditioner normally for another 720 hours, but only if you followed
the instructions above EXACTLY.

SOURCE: E1 displayed and AC will not come on

These units have a capacitor that cannot be replaced. You'll need to buy the whole circuit board. I didn't bother with mine, I just went and bought another unit. 108 bucks.

The water isn't filling into water softner for setting up


Depending on the washing machine, it is supposed to have a gizmo inside the softner housing that triggers the water during the rinse cycle to flow into the softner dispenser. Sometimes, they go missing or are clogged with hardened softner. Open the door fully open and carefully prize the entire housing out. Clean it with hot water and put it back in. Some machines require the slide in tray be raised about 70 degrees (most common) and then pull out, others require a downward angle.

My Culligan MC450S water softner has a blank flashing display. Water seems to be constantly running through the softner and pressing any display panel buttons has no effect.


This system should be under warranty still. If it is running to drain constantly bypass the system and call Culligan for service. Unplug it for 2 minutes and it may reset.

My water softener is inoperative and is displaying ''E1'' in the status window.


Hi,

Two possible ways to resolve this:

1. (the easiest to try first) - Unplug the unit from the electrical supply for 20-30 minutes and then restore power. This may clear the error code.

2. The error normally means that the motor has encountered some form of resistance - i.e. a blockage of debris in the piston seal inside the valave or possibly it could be due to a microswitch not activating correctly which could cause the piston to stop in an incorrect position. This would normally be a job for the service team; however if you are feeling that you want to tackle this yourself you could refer to the diagram in the user manual to disassemble the unit and investigate further. In all liklihood a clean may well fix the issue

If this helps, please leave feedback

Water softener is inoperative and is displaying E1


Usually, an E1 error code means the circuit board is bad. Try unplugging the unit for 5 minutes. Upon plugging it back in, if it does not reset itself, that means you need a new board. It is really easy to replace ( just a few wires) and will cost around $160.

Water left in bleach and fabric softner after running load


You must take out the compartment and empty it out before adding any bleach the next time, there is a type of button way in the back that you press down on pull out the entire door and empty the water for the next washing. You must press down very hard the entire door does come out check out your book for instructions it is way in the back on the left hand side. This happens to mine once in a while not all the time.

Waterboss water softner. E1 error message with water running right through system.


THis has happened to me a couple of times and i have fixed it by doing the following:

1. slide the electronic display unit off its base
2. spray a bit of WD 40 on the 2 gears right next to each other (they are gold and black on my unit)
3. spray a bit of WD40 on the large grey wheel on the other side of the 2 gears. The 2 gears are supposed to turn the grey wheel, which in turns pushes a little black plunger in with one of its three little prongs. Use a screw driver to make sure that the plunger is moving freely - push it in and out a few times and put a bit of WD40 on it.

The whole error code is about that large grey wheel not moving - it is the "magnetic disc" that the owner's manual refers to.

Finally, reposition the elwectronic display unit - make sure it is tightly secured in its original position, or it will not work.

Unplug the power to the display unit and then re-plug it back in. The unit should go through its cycle on its own then...assuming you don't have any damaged parts. Hope this helps!!!!

My display window reads e1 and f1 and we can't get anything to work


tholt, for the model posted F1 E1 is a eeprom error in the board. Try pressing and holding cancel/off key for 5 seconds. If that doesn't work unplug or disconnect the power for 1 minute. Plug it back in, if the error comes back it probably is a bad control board. Most common cause of control failures is caused by corrosion on the connectors. I would seat and reseat all the connectors to the board, including the keypad ribbon. Give this a shot and post back, Catriver.
