Question about Haier hwr10xc6 Air Conditioner

E1 error code displays when unit is plugged in I have a wall unit with about 10,000 BTU capacity. Two days ago, it quit working and displayed the E1 error code. I unplugged the unit, let it sit for 10 minutes and plugged it back in. It started right up and worked fine until this afternoon, when it once again shows the E1 error code. What does the E1 error code mean and how do I get this unit working again? fmichaelk@gmail.com

Highly annoying issue error code E1. After 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.

So you will come home to a hot bedroom, living room, etc. unexpectedly,
and you will NOT be amused, as I was not.

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

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.

For most ACs the E1 is a reminder to clean the filter. If you haven't done this do so. On some units unplugging then replugging will reset the timer. On some I have seen that holding the power button while plugging the unit in then waiting for a beep, then unplugging and replugging resets the timer. I'm downloading the manual now to see if I can get more specifics.

    Actually I have bad news, the manual for your unit: http://www.haieramerica.com/en/asset/pro... (Page 2 in PDF, page 14 in printed manual) states that an E1 is a circuit fault and to contact service for this error. Looks like the control board on your unit has gone bad. Could be a sensor, could be a fuse, could be any other component. You could try to dismantle the unit and get to the board and take a look, also clean any sensors that look oxidized or dirty. Haier's parts site is currently under construction, if you go there you are instructed to call (800)313-8495 if you would be interested in purchasing parts for the unit. Otherwise your best bet would be to but a new AC with warranty.

    OOPS! When I clicked a link to the product manual I got a manual for a water heater and not an AC unit, so the E1 information I get was wrong. I'm trying to get the proper manual and will see what it says.

Keep getting code e1


According to page 24 of your owner's manual, the E1 error is indicative of a short circuit in the Indoor Air Thermistor. The unit will likely require service.

Good luck,

How large a room does a 10,000 btu air conditioner cool


What size unit do I need for my room? Use the following chart to find the appropriate size air conditioner to use:

AREA TO BE COOLED / CAPACITY (BTU/HR)

100 to 150 square feet = 5,000

150 to 250 square feet = 6,000

250 to 300 square feet = 7,000

300 to 350 square feet = 8,000

350 to 400 square feet = 9,000

400 to 450 square feet = 10,000

450 to 550 square feet = 12,000

550 to 700 square feet = 14,000

700 to 1000 square feet = 18,000

If the room is heavily shaded, reduce needed capacity by 10%

If the room receives a lot of direct sun, increase needed capacity by 10%

Add 600 Btu/Hr for each person in the room if there are more than two people

If the unit is for a kitchen, increase the capacity by 4,000-6,000 Btu/Hr.

if this helps please vote me a fix ya

E1 error code on air conditioner


I called haier about this error code. E1 indicates that a button on the control panel or the reomote is stuck. I was instructed to unplug the unit and push each button at least 5 times, one at a time. Plug the unit back in, and this fixed my problem with error E1 and the unit works fine.

Air condition problem


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.
