    I have the same problem.... I can unplug it and it starts again, but that is very annoying at night to have to keep unplugging the unit to start it back up again!

Use a universal remote (like the one for a TV) to turn on and to adjust settings. I was some what doubtful, but after trying my universal remote, my air conditioner started working.

Ac shuts off E1 error message


E1 Error Code -->> Clean Filter

Owners of Sharp air conditioner models AF-S60FX, AF-S80FX, AF-S85FX, and AF-R80FX may experience the following (highly annoying) issue. After 720 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.

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 another 720 hours of cooling bliss:
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.

If you doubt the veracity of this information, or it does not work as expected, you can get it directly from the source at: 1-800-237-4277 (Sharp customer service line). You'll need to call between 7 AM and 7 PM US Central time, and have your model number and serial number ready.

How To Clear Sharp Air Conditioner E1 "Clean Filter" Error Code

Air condit. runs for ten minutes , shuts off and displays E1


You should first look in the instruction/operation manual usually in the back pages for trouble shooting or code faults (errors). There should be a list of faults such as E1, E2, E33, E44 etc. and an explanation of each code. If you cannot find this info, call the manufacture ; they will tell you exactly what the E1 fault code stands for and possibly what will correct it. Ask for technical support. The fact that it runs for 10 minutes and stops; if you unplug it or turn the control to off, will it start again when you reenergize it ? This could indicate low voltage from the electric source. Are you running it with an extention cord or is the electric circuit line a very long run and robbing power before it gets to the unit? Have you checked the filter so that it is clean enough for good air flow, otherwise the unit will detect the low air movement from a dirty filter and shut itself down.

Unit stops working - E1


I wrote the solution #1 and have an additional comment. This really does work!! I fixed my neighbor's AC unit by following the instructions for clearing the E1 code. The unit will not operate until the code is cleared. The page is titled: Customer assistance for air filters cleaning (E1 code) on Sharp Air Conditioners

"Cool" mode shuts off


An E1 error is automatically generated after the AC runs for so many hours to remind you to clean the filter. The owners manual says to clean the filter and unplug the unit, then plug unit back in and code will be reset. However, a User review stated that his code was not reset until he followed a fairly simple routine. "Unplug the unit. Hold down the power button and plug back in. Wait to hear a "beep" and then unplug it again. Plug unit in again and it should restart without E1 code."
