I understand that the compressor continues to run after your Frigidaire air conditioner has turned off. From that information it sounds like there could be a possible issue within your control panel or relay. I would recommend a reset on the appliance, to perform a reset unplug the power cord you will see a test button, push that button and you will hear a click. You would then press the reset button you will hear a click again signifying that the appliance has been reset. Then plug your air conditioner back in. If you continue to have an issue with your compressor I would seek assistance from a professional. Hope this is helpful. -Matt
Press the "Power" button to turn off your unit and then remove the filter from the filter panel on the side or front of your air conditioner. Refer to your manual if you are unsure where the filter on your unit is located.
Inspect the filter. If it is dirty, brush off dirt, debris and lint. If it is really dirty, wash it with mild soap and water and allow it to dry completely. Reinsert it into its compartment. If your filter is worn out or damaged, purchase a replacement filter from an appliance or hardware store and replace the old one.Turn on the air conditioner. Move to the next step if the LCD continues to display the E1 error code.
Check for a reset button on your air conditioner and press it to reset your unit. Some of the newer air conditioners have reset buttons to restore the default factory settings. Press the "Power" button on the front panel of your air conditioner to power down your unit if it does not have a reset button. Unplug the unit from the electrical outlet. Leave the air conditioner off for several hours to see if it will reset.
Plug your air conditioner back into the electrical outlet and turn it on. If your air conditioner is still displaying the E1 error code, turn it off and contact a qualified technician because the room thermistor responsible for detecting room temperature may be defective.
Just guessing, here. The reset is actually a "Ground Fault Interrupter" called a GFI. It's there to cut of power in case of a dangerous electrical condition--which you probably don't have.
Did you unplug the unit? If not do so, let the GFI cool for several minutes, and try to reset again. They're pretty hard to push in, maybe use a fingernail, you must hear a click or it's not reset.
Is there water in the outdoor unit, or is it filled with snow? This is the most likely cause of an actual GFI fault.
If the GFI itself has failed (unlikely), you could replace the entire power cord. You should then maintain safety by installing a GFI circuit breaker on that circuit, or you'll be in violation of codes that might affect your homeowners insurance.
There could actually be a problem with the unit. This would be that an electrical wire has come loose and is contacting the metal chassis, creating a shock hazard. Unlikely but possible.
If the receptacal you're plugging into is old and worn it might the problem. Worn receptacles might actually have tiny electrical arcs inside, which can trip a GFI. At a couple of bucks (DIY) it's worth a shot.
If there's actually an electrical fault in the unit it can be found and repaired, but the cost of repair could very well be more than it's worth. Warranty?
The reset button on the power cord has to be really pushed in until you feel a click. It is a soft button, so you might think you have pushed it in enough but you must feel the click. After the first reset you no longer have to press the button unless you have other electrical power issues that trip the button.
Your condenser fan costs less an $100 if you install it yourself. First with the system on and calling for cooling take a screw driver and spin the fan blade. If the fan comes on then it has a bad bearing, if it doesn't it's electrical. With power off remove the access panel and inspect the wiring etc.. Possible run capacitor.
go to sharpusa.com and click on support, they have all the model airconditioners and all the help. its in pdf format and i dont know how to paste the info. really easy problem to fix.
Basically, tells you to make sure air filter is clean.Unplug from wall, then hold Power/on/off button down and plug unit in wall. press Power/on/off button until you hear a beeping sound(approx 5 sec) then disconnect powerplug from wall. plug back in and start your ac again. it should work!
If this dont work try the same thing but by pressing the Mode button and same kind of operation as above, but the unit will start to operate after you press mode and herar the beeps. turn off by pressing On/off button. then start as normal. if you cant get it go visit the website.
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. ;)
