Do the lights flashes alternatively or simultaneously? If they flash simultaneously (at the same time) the unit is in test mode. If the flash alternatively, then there is a fault with the unit. Obviously when you pulled off the cover you must have touched or moved something.
I would get the unit repaired by a professional

My Freidrich air conditioner is 2 years old. It seems to run very "rough" - it's hard to explain the sound I'm hearing. Still cooling off the room.

Sounds like your unit is maybe unlevel causing the fan blade to rub or its not draining properly and the fan blade is running through water and should be pulled and cleaned.

My A/C blowing air, but it is not cool. It has started freezing up. We just replaced the air filters and since then it is freezing up. We even gently cleaned the a/c coils before replacing the filters. ...

Hello, sounds like it is either a low charge or lack of airflow, what type of filter are you using? sometimes those filters that claim to be super effecient will actually cut down on your airflow and cause the ac to freeze up.

I have a freidrich quietmaster wall air conditioner and the condenser works fine until you use the money saver then it starts to blow hot air

blowing hot air is the unit's way of further cooling its compressor, this should not last long and should cycle back and forth

Hi! I have a Freidrich Quitmaster, SS12J10. The condensation water is flowing back into the apt..I think that the drain hole is clogged, I will be pulling the unit out to clean, but would like to have any...

The drain holes are usually in the back corners of the pan and many do allow some water to remain in the pan to help cool the condensaer coil...

No cool air but only fan working in central air condition

Check to see if outside unit is running. If it is check breaker,float switch inside. If everything is ok You have to call a Service Tech. There is only so far you can go. If you think the gas company had anything to do with it call them back and tell them it was working before you checked the gas. They could have left something off. Russ

Need replacement cover or grille for model # KM18J30

Johnson supply out of Texas has an account with Freidrich. They are an A/C supply house. I believe they are based out of Houston. I would give them a call and see if you can get one through them.

Full Tank

I had the same error and the tank was not even full. I took the cover off of the unit which consisted of removing 10 screws. The water tank is on the bottom left side. I then removed the float which was a small sensor with a styrofoam float. I removed the float (2 more screws) and moved it up and down. It did not appear to move very smooth but after moving it back and forth a few time it seemed better. I put the float back in ensuring it was at the low point, screwed it back in and then tested the unit. It came on and appears to work fine now. I unplugged again putt the cover back on it has now ran 30 minutes no problems.
