May I ask what the model is? Otherwise I can only answer generically what is wrong:

There are fault codes listed for the a/c that I pulled up as an example, but you should try to hit the reset button on the plug if there is one.

The manual is a free download from SharpUSA.com at the following link:
http://www.sharpusa.com/CustomerSupport/ProductDownloads.aspx

Just input your model, and then the manual is in .pdf format so you'll also need to install the .pdf reader from Adobe.com which is also a free download.

The codes, if any, should be listed in the manual that you download.

Wish you luck on this repair.

Have a good day.

Window unit not cooling


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire air conditioning, model# FAC126P1, is not cooling. First, try setting the temperature to a lower temperature. Secondly, make sure the compressor did not shut off by switching modes. Make sure it is on cool and wait approximately 3 minutes and listen for the compressor to restart. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your air conditioner status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best regards-
WP

I have a Sharp AF-S80FX A.C. unit. Whether on cool or fan the unit keeps tripping the breaker on the plug with an E1 message. The filter has been removed and cleaned, but it really wasn't dirty.

It doesn't turn on at all
The fan runs but there's no cold air
The air is cool but doesn't seem cold enough
The unit never turns off
There is water sloshing around inside
The unit tries to start for a few seconds and then quits
A motor is running but there is no air blowing
The unit rattles loudly when it turns off
Water leaks out the front of the unit
The air smells musty

It doesn't turn on at all

Check to see if there is power getting to the air conditioner. If it is a 110-volt unit, plug a lamp or other device into the same outlet the air conditioner is plugged into. If there's no power, check the fuses or circuit breakers. If there's still no power, you will need to contact a qualified electrician to restore power to the outlet.

If there is power to the appliance but it is still completely dead there may be a problem in one or more of the following areas:

A/C runs fine for 7-8 minutes, then shuts off


Refrigeration problem. Must be a bad thermostat.

Window unit (110) cools for a few minutes then stops cooling just fan air unit is about 6 0r 7 years old


It sounds like your compresssor is shutting off on an overload. After the overload cools down the compressor comes back on until the overload heats up and shuts the compressor off again.The fan keeps running as it is not on the same circuit as your compressor.

Ac shuts off E1 error message


E1 Error Code -->> Clean Filter

Owners of Sharp air conditioner models AF-S60FX, AF-S80FX, AF-S85FX, and AF-R80FX may experience the following (highly annoying) issue. After 720 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.

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 another 720 hours of cooling bliss:
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.

If you doubt the veracity of this information, or it does not work as expected, you can get it directly from the source at: 1-800-237-4277 (Sharp customer service line). You'll need to call between 7 AM and 7 PM US Central time, and have your model number and serial number ready.

E1 code


Use a universal remote (like the one for a TV) to turn on and to adjust settings. I was some what doubtful, but after trying my universal remote, my air conditioner started working.

An E1 error is automatically generated after the AC runs for so many hours to remind you to clean the filter. The manual says to clean filter and unplug unit, then plug unit back in and code will be reset.
