    Amcor aws241HX wont run and displays F1 fault code. Previuos answer said this was room temperature sensor failure, but manual says fault code for that is F2. This code says "Indoor and outdoor communication failure".

The fault F1 indicates that the room temperature sensor of your unit has gone bad. You are required to purchase a new sensor and replace it with the unserviceable one. Here is a link to your manual which will guide you in replacement.

When we put on the air conditioner it shows F1 or ERROR on the window. What is the problem?


Hi Charity, F1 is a communication fault, I hope this helps......... CHEERS..
1?Check whether the connection of the outdoor unit and indoor unit is one to one, otherwise connect the L, N and communication line of the indoor unit and outdoor unit one to one.
2?Measure whether the voltage between the zero line and the communication line is 18V-30AC half-wave signal, check whether the communication circuit on the indoor and outdoor electric control board has been damaged, otherwise replace it.
3?Check whether the LED on the outdoor power board has been on, otherwise replace the electric control board.
4?Check whether the unit is abnormal caused by the external interference, if it is, then find the interfering source, and removes it.

My Soleus KFCHP mini-split air conditioner won't cool. Displays error F1: "the communication faults between the indoor and outdoor units." Tried tightening the connections indoors and out. Advice?


Cheryl, the first thing to do with this and any communication error is to cycle power on the unit. You could just be experiencing a blip in the control circuit that many times resets itself with a cycling of incoming power.

Soleus dual mini split KFMHP18 fault error F1


F1 error code is a communication failure between the outdoor and indoor units. Check all inter-connecting wires. They should be minimum 14g stranded wire. Make sure all electrical connections are tight. These units are manufactured by CHIGO, you may try to contact them.

Have a contractor with a AWS18THX & AOS181HX In his own house & 1 year after installed the contractor is shut down. He is showing a code F1 (communications?) How can I get a manual for this? Thanks...


Mark,
Your problem lies with the communication wire from the outdoor unit to indoor unit ("S" terminal). Make sure the connections are tight and all plugs at the outdoor unit are plugged in. Also the communication wire should be 14 awg. If it too small, errors could result. Worse case send the Aquaman there.

I have an LG split system air conditioner model number LSZ244VN-4 it is coming up with a fault code of CS after it has been running for approx 5 minutes


There is no CS code. Please read as C5.
Fault Code 05 and 53 (CH05 is displayed at indoor unit, 53 is displayed at outdoor unit)
This fault code indicates a communication error between the indoor and outdoor units; this is usually caused
by wiring errors or condensate pumps connected to the inter-connecting cable.
The communication between the units is a fluctuating DC voltage commonly called a serial signal, it can be
easily lost if the wiring is not done correctly. If there is a communication error fault CH05 will appear within 5
mins of powering up the system.
Testing
• Check Outdoor and Indoor Power Supply Voltages ( 230V ±10% ) and correct as necessary.
• Check for any mis-wiring or loose connections and correct as required.
• Check the resistance between communication line and GND. (Normal: Over 2M).
• If one Indoor unit operates normally Outdoor PCB is generally normal.
Turn on the power and start the indoor unit in cooling, set the temperature to 18ºC; the serial communication
signal will only be present for the first 3 mins of operation.
Set your meter to DC Volts, Test between terminals 5 (Red probe) and 2 or Earth (Black probe) of the outdoor
unit, you should see a fluctuating 0-72 Vdc.
If the Voltage is not present disconnect the terminal 5 cable, test the Voltage between this wire (Red probe)
and 2 or Earth (Black probe), you should see a steady voltage in the range of -0.1 to -10.0 Vdc. If No Voltage
is present either the cable or Indoor PCB must be faulty. This can be determined by checking the voltage
output on the Comms terminal of the Indoor unit, with the Comms wire disconnected. If No Voltage is present
the Indoor PCB must be faulty, if present, cable must be at fault.
