PI error messag every couple of hours

I purchased a 10000 btu unit in 2008. It worked fine cooled my bedroom not issues.
Took it out last week and set it up and now after a couple of hours it stops cooling and error message PI come on.
If you empty the bottom pan it will cool for about and hour and do the same thing. Their is only a small amount of water in the pan when it is emptied.
This never happened last year.

Any ideas?

I have a Crosley 220 volt 18,500 btu window unit air conditioner with a heat pump. The cool air works fine when set on cold, but when set on heat, it doesn't blow warm air. What should I check first?

Why does my JVC KD-DB95BT car stereo lose power?


Power lost on two units in one car is a little unique. Does it lose power in the middle of a trip or when you first get into car? I would recommend bench testing to direct 12v unit to see if car is causing voltage loss.

I have a Maytag window unit and i am trying to find out how many btu is has. right now it is in a small room and i want to know if it will work in a bigger size room. MODEL M6Q1OF2A SERIAL CR 264327...


that is a 10000 btu unit and a good rule of thumb to go by when 'sizing' a unit is 12000 btu for every 600 sq ft of cooling space (if the place is well insulated) or 400 sq ft (if not well insulated).
So, you have a 10000 btu unit which is 5/6th of 12000 btu - so - can reasonably expect that unit to cool approximately 500 sq feet.
In other words the room it's in now could be only - say - 300 sq feet (and well insulated) - in which case the AC unit is cooling it - well.
However, if you try to cool a 800 sq ft room - it will not work as well.
Hope this has helped.

I have an LG Neo Plasma air conditioning unit in the living room and the Inverter in the bedroom. I understand these are set up to work together, however, the bedroom unit starts to freeze up (ice)...


I assume its the outside unit of the bedroom that freezes up ?? If the outdoor temperature is below 5 degrees celcuis, its likely to freeze up on the outdoor coil ( On heating mode), there is a defrost function which defrosts the machine automatically. If the indoor unit starts to freeze up ( on cooling mode), I would suggest that there is a shortage of refrigerant gas. Especially if the indoor unit starts to "spit" water out when it is running. There may be a gas leak due to a pipe failure or loose flared fitting. These must be rectified before recharging with gas.

My landlord installed this brand new out of the box. Our apt is 900 sq ft tops. This unit can't even cool down our living room and kitchen. If the whole 2 bedroom apt is 900 sq ft, you can imagine how...


The AC your landlord installed is rated at 8000 btu which is way too small for 900 sq ft. You need at least a 15000 Btu Air conditioner and a 'well insulated' house to be cool.
A good rule of thumb in the AC business says you need 1 ton (12000 btu) of Air conditioning for every 600 sq feet (if the house is well insulated) - if not - then you will need 1 ton (12000 btu) for every 400 sq feet.
So, if you have 900 sq feet and the house is well insulated you should have at least a 15000 btu unit.
If it's not well insulated you will need 24,000 btu.

Mr slim unit in bedroom 9kbtu - room 11x12'- is humid, awful


Lets clarify. DRY mode only dehumidifes that air and does not cool. Cool is used for cooling. Dry mode doesn't normally have temp control; it is automatically set by the unit. I think 9000btu is a big unit for the room; it is overkill. I would switch to a 5000btu unit. it cannot be fixed and the BR unit needs to be uninstalled and the new unit needs to be re-installed. The price of commisioning, de-commisioning and new unit is something in which you will have to pay.
I take the time to answer your questions, so please rate me.
Thankyou

There may be a master reset switch or combination of buttons to press. The Manufacturer may be able to walk you through this process. Otherwise I would simply exchange it. It sounds like it has a manufacturing problem.
