Maybe get an electrician to make sure the voltage is not dropping to low at start up.

I'm presuming you're not getting any Error Messages on the Remote.

You'll need to try running it in TEST Mode.

Lift the front panel on the indoor unit and press the TEST RUN Button.
The OPERATION Lamp should start flashing and the unit will start in COOL Mode.
Now press the MODE Button on the Remote to change to HEAT Mode.

Let me know what happens.

This may just be a "Glitch", to see if you can get it working properly again....
Please try this, The manual says to clean filter and unplug unit, plug unit back in and code will be reset. If that procedure doesn't work, then try below,
This time, Unplug unit, clean filter, HOLD DOWN power button and CONTINUE HOLDING while plugging unit back in. Unit will beep. Unplug again, plug back in and resume normal operation.

Above is a link so you can download your manuals, and peruse them for any assistance?
To be able to perform any DIY repairs one simply must have a service manual, this will as well as indicating troubleshooting steps, will also provide those all important spare parts numbers, should one have to order spare parts.

Now if, you are DIYing and this problem isn't anything to do with above, then you most likely have either some sort of sensor, or thermostat or main board problem? Unfortunately the symptoms described are pretty generic, and really it's pretty hard to make a determination without actually examining the unit. One must perform a set of troubleshooting steps to isolate and hopefully remedy any situation. These steps are only available from a service manual, as they change from model to model,make to make.
A/C's have many sections to them, and quite a few things can stop operation, or cause a malfunction, it will most likely be best if you can take the unit (I know that maybe a hassle, but it would be the cheapest way, else get a service call?) to an honest qualified person, and get it looked at, at least obtain a "Quote", as to costings and go from there.
The cost of repair, if indeed parts are available, may be more than the unit is worth? I am getting this more and more with my own customers, as often theses days the cost of repair, availability, or lack of, more to the point, often, precludes, or exceeds or comes close to, the cost of a new unit, as silly as that may seem? so make sure you only get that "Quote" first, as related.

SOURCE: When we turn the unit off inside the outside unit continues to run and we have to turn it off at the main power board Can anyone help Please. Model Sharp AY-A249J

A lot of A/C units have protective circuitry that enforces minimum cycle time, once turned on the circuit keeps it on for the minimum time (typically 2-5 minutes) and once turned off it will not allow it to turn on again for a minimum time period. This is to prevent compressor vapor lock. Could that explain the behavior you're observing?

I have problems in my sharp air conditioner model AY-AP24HME . Bad-smelling humidity


Sounds like the blower wheel or coil are dirty/moldy. The unit probably just needs to be cleaned properly.

Wall unit not picking up remote signal.model ah-a249j air con unit.thankyou


James. if you haven't replaced the batteries in the hand held remote, that's the first place to start troubleshooting the problem. Make sure the new batteries are facing the proper direction, when you install them. Also, check the photo electric cell receiver in the AC unit. It may be dirty and can not clearly receive the signal. or you may be to far away from the unit.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Hello I have Sharp Air con/Heating AY-XPM9FR with a floor/wall unit and a higher wall unit that are supposed to work in conjunction with each other. I have never had any problems until we had a power cut...


Hi Helen, i want to know the age of your Sharp Air con/Heating system. If its more than 1 year and you using it regular basic , then i suggest you change the battery or the remote control first then try . If the same thing happens then follow the instruction as per below image.

If there is also ok & look good then ,please call a service man and check the air cooling/ heating gas. Because you mentioned "I have the manual and have tried to reset the timers using the remote control but still no good. " Another chance you can take before call the service person, just reset the full system by remote control not only the timer. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Hi the outdoor unit turns on ( fan runs) the indoor unit does open, no heat or cold air blowing. In just fan mode the unit works fine etc speed setting ok. Its a sharp split type air model # ae-a244j...


My gut says that this is evidence of a bad control board(circuit board). As usual, double check that your batteries are good in the thermostat. I have seen some weird things happen when the batteries are low. This one may be a job for your local contractor.
