Question about Mitsubishi MSZ-A12NA Air Conditioner

1 Answer

We have a far-let LED flashing 1 second on 1 second off repeatedly indicating a communication error between the indoor and outdoor units. The practical outcome is that the outside condenser doesn't kick on. Our service company has tried it all from going through the process recommended to installing a new "mother board". It still doesn't work. Any ideas?

What does the code on the screen mean flashes between ch and 05 ?


CH 5 on these units indicates a communications error between the indoor and outdoor units. Generally, it will require a replacement outdoor board assembly to repair it. Lookup LG parts on the internet or ring them for your nearest Agent or parts. 800 243-0000

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 FIJITSU inverter is not working correctly, the timer light is flashing continuously and the timer lights flashes 5 times can anyone help pleawe


fujitsu is a good brand.
try one of these two things:

Turn the unit off then on again. After that press test button on remote control (rear side) and look how many times now operation and timer LED flashes. Note that. Then press MANUAL/AUTO button on indoor unit until you hear 3 beeps from buzzer. That will erase error memory.
Switch off and than on unit and see if indication repeat or it is gone. If it is gone, keep using your unit.
If it is repeated post your notes here.

OR+++++++++++++++++++++FOR OTHER MODELS

5 x Operation flash and a constant Timer flash indicates an outdoor unit control error. With this code flashing on the indoor unit, you need to point the remote at the unit and push the test run button. The flash pattern will change to a continuously flashing Operation light and a number of flashes of the timer light which gives more detail on what the error is.

To get the unit to try to restart you need to push and hold the manual/auto button on the indoor unit for a few seconds then reset the mains power supply but leave it off for a minute or so for the unit to power down completely. If you are going to try this make sure you make a note of any error codes first if you have to get someone out to look at it, it will help them a lot.

Repeating flash


Serial signal (reverse) error, at operation start up. Usually a faulty outdoor controller board but this one has about six PCB'S in the outdoor unit so your going to need a tech to look at it.

Eee code displayed


To work out what the error code is press the orange start/stop button on the remote controller so unit operation is stopped.
Then press and hold "energy save" and "zone control" button simultaneously for at least five seconds, the error code will be along the lines of En:nn where the "En:" is the error code and the ":nn" indicates the indopor unit address if there are multiple indoor units connected to the one controller. If the upper vertical bar on the capital E is missing so it looks maybe like a 2 or something don't worry for some reasons they just do that
Some common error codes are:
E0 Communication error between indoor unit and wired remote control, check if there is 12VDC between terminal 1 + 3 at remote control and 8-9VDC pulsating between terminal 2 + 3. If DC volts out of Indoor pcb is below about 11.6VDC it will cause this error, the problem is normally dry capacitors in the 12 VDC power supply section. This model has two power supply sections on indoor pcb.
E1 Communication error between indoor unit and outdoor unit,
EF Discharge temperature abnormal

Carrier split 42G250HF-1(indoor unit


I'm not sure exactly what unit you have and what controls you have installed on the unit. But....there usually is a flash code schematic on the unit. Usually on the inside of the blower compartment cover. This should tell you what is wrong with the unit. It could have a low voltage short somewhere and is loosing the call for cool. So the answer can be a possible yes to your question but without knowing the flash code, it's hard to tell from my point of view. You might end up calling a service professional out to check it.
