What is the model of your air conditioner. With out that information i cant help you with your ac repair problem. If you are having prolonged air conditioning check out Air Conditioning Tamarac for more HVAC Support
if some units detect ice they will leave the fan running in an attempt to defrost the coils. If it's the outside coils and it's warm enough inside, try running the air conditioning for a few minutes, that will put hot coolant through the coils and could melt the ice for you.
I suspect that the microprocessor detected an overheat fault and is keeping it in E8 mode to prevent fire. The code needs to be cleared somehow. If it has some buttons on the front then try holding one whilst plugging it in. This may reset it. The reset will be something along those lines. Don't open it because if you can't fix it that way you need to take it back to the shop.
Along with the service light, are you getting any fault codes with it (like EC and a number)? Under normal conditions, this would mean the the unit as a whole is running too much and needs to be cleaned. If cleaned and this is still an issue, you may need a certified person to look for cooling issue that only the computer is seeing. This can happen in a unit the is about 10-15 years old, normally in the fridge section. Do you have a ice ball or frost on the the back wall of the fridge section around the meat slide shelf? this would b a tell - tell sign of a cooling issue. If in doubt, call SubZero dIrectly at 800-888-7820 ask for a certified dealer to take care of you. Not every service company can work on the SubZero unit. (You want certified!)
mcdevito75 here YES IT DOES, I'm no expert but that ice is the problem, remove the cover and filter and let the ice melt, DO NOT REMOVE THE ICE YOURSELF, YOU CAN HURT THE UNIT, let the ice melt, then doulble chech the unit is not set to low in temperature about 60 degrees is plenty or mid way thru the blue sign on the dial, also clean the filter.
You might want to refer to the unit manual, which has a fault code section (if the unit has a manual), look up the fault code E8, in the manual and it will tell you what fault it is. Depending on where the unit was manufactured, you may not be able to contact anyone regarding the warranty or diagnoses of the fault, so instead contact your local A.C company for help. Sorry I could not be of more help.
I had a problem with my Haier Air Conditioner also and was getting an E8 error message. We had taken the air conditioner out to clean it and when we put it back in all we could get was the E8 error message. We tried several different things so I don't know if it was a combination or luck. Here is what we did.
First we tried holding in all the buttons on the panel and another person hit the on/off button on the remote (per a suggestion on the internet). The fan stayed on, but the compressor would cycle and it would get cold for a few minutes then kick off, but we never could get the buttons on the control panel to work. Nothing happened when we pushed them.
Then we checked the thermostat (the little tube in the front) . The thermostat tube was touching the coils. We rearranged the tube so it was not kinked or touching the coils. It was then getting cold, but we couldn't control the buttons. So we unplugged it (reluctantly because it was cool then) and plugged it back in and it started working. Hope this helps someone! I don't know if what we did worked or the mother board got wet and just happened to dry out or something.
I had the same error message and the ice cube dispenser stopped working. On examining the workings, I found that the wire that should have been connected to the ice cube tray had sheared somehow (???) - a simple splice with lots of insulation tape has apparently fixed the problem.
Just had this fault fixed on my 930. It is the ice sensor just under the ice cube tray - mine had a broken wire (from rotating several times a day for over a year!)
Fiddley but easy fix yourself with a "leggo" block connector to re join the wire if that is the fault, or ring Beko on 01923 654659 (very helpful company to deal with) for a part.
Part number 4344740185.
The other suggestion about the water filter I respectfully believe is wrong!
