    We have the same problem. It was making a loud rattling noise, so we tried to fix it, now it just says EE and won't turn on. Help!

    I have exactly the same problem. It shows EE on the display but won't turn on. Doesn't matter if you try to change mode, etc.

It's probably the control board inside the control panel. I had the same problem and it moisture shorted out the board. You can order a new one from Sears Parts for about $45

This worked, but it's not pretty--

I have an Admiral window A/C unit that did the same thing three years ago--EE and no operation. Technicians told me it was the control circuit board. I ordered another board from Sears but Admiral apparently doesn't make this model's replacement board. I was told to throw the A/C unit away and get another! It's was only five years old at the time and had only been used for two years.

Undaunted, I took the front off (ALWAYS UNPLUG THE UNIT FIRST) and looked for obvious problems then reassembled it. It work for about ten seconds and then went to EE. I figured the control board was overheated and I drilled vent holes in the front panel. I can't say this is what fixed it but it worked the rest of the year and right up until yesterday when it went back to EE and no operation. If you think my first solution was tacky, read on.

I unplugged the unit and pulled the front off. I removed the plastic cover to the control circuit board and unscrewed the circuit board from this plastic cover--everything was hanging out in the open. I depressed the control circuit board's on/off microswitch then re-plugged the wall plug. The EE light didn't come on for about ten seconds. I try different combinations of unplugging the cord, holding down the on/off microswitch and replugging. (I have time on my hands). I finally found that by replugging the wall cord while holding down the on/off microswitch and quickly tapping the fan speed microswitch I could get the A/C unit to cycle continuously through it's functions while flashing an 88 at the end of each cycle. I let it cycle for about ten minutes then unplugged the AC wall plug. I re-plugged the wall plug. It now works like it should (no need to hold the on/off microswitch). It's been running for an hour now. All the wiring is still hanging out and the plastic front pieces are on the floor but I can live with that. All the control panel functions work as they shoud, I just have to reference the plastic cover sitting next to A/C unit. "Easy Peasy," as Groucho used to say.

I'd say, "Kids, don't try this at home," but.....

Panasonic CWXC203EU the unit is flashing error code EE and only when you unplug it shuts off the control do not work blows s a littlle cold air but after a shor time it shuts off


EE means energy efficiency. hen EE is displayed there can be a defective thermistor or insufficient ventilation.

The following works on some A/C system: "When EE is displayed, press "energy save" and "zone control" simultaneously for about 5 secs"

Try also testing the system in auto mode, check ventilation and if possible test thermistor by reading impedance with a multimeter.

If when EE is displayed the unit also becomes non-responsive and does not turn off, then the problem may also be a defective controller board. Other parts, included the ones mentioned before, must be tested before replacing the control module.

My air conditioner turned itself off and now the display reads EE we have unplugged it it runs for a little while then shuts itself off again

Remove the unit from the window,and dissassemble and use a water hose and clean the inside of the unit,remove all debris,this is most likely the problem.

Letters EE came up in display, and it cut off! now, not cooling

The problem is in the electronic control. I have reconfigured these in the past using older style controls and had some success.

EE in the display window

Hi, I have been trying to get in touch with a service rep to find out but unable to get one. They wanted proof that I had purchased a unit. Its possible that your receptacle is not polarized right. By that I mean the two wires may need switched on the receptacle or maybe it doesn't have a good ground. You may want to try temporarily using an extension cord and try another plug. Most things will run good on receptacles wired wrong but with a computerized AC it may be seeing a fault. If you still need help I think the best way to find out would be for you too contact the store that you bought the unit from and make it their responsibility to find out what the EE stands for. If they cant, get the unit replaced and try again. If you do get hold of a service tech # from Maytag, please send it to me at Hope this helps. kstfas
