Question about Sharp Heating & Cooling

5 Answers

I have a Sharp AF-S80FX A.C. unit. Whether on cool or fan the unit keeps tripping the breaker on the plug with an E1 message. The filter has been removed and cleaned, but it really wasn't dirty.

    I followed the instructions from Kevin and the unit started and ran for approx. 15 minutes and the plug breaker tripped again. this is what has been happening.

    I tried the start sequence that kevin gave me and the unit started but tripped at the plug with the E1 message again after approx. 15 minutes.

I have a Sharp AF-S80FX - small_16_7.jpg For a detailed Air Conditioner illustration, click below.

It doesn't turn on at all
The fan runs but there's no cold air
The air is cool but doesn't seem cold enough
The unit never turns off
There is water sloshing around inside
The unit tries to start for a few seconds and then quits
A motor is running but there is no air blowing
The unit rattles loudly when it turns off
Water leaks out the front of the unit
The air smells musty
Note: If your repair problem isn't listed, click here


It doesn't turn on at all

Check to see if there is power getting to the air conditioner. If it is a 110-volt unit, plug a lamp or other device into the same outlet the air conditioner is plugged into. If there's no power, check the fuses or circuit breakers. If there's still no power, you will need to contact a qualified electrician to restore power to the outlet.

If there is power to the appliance but it is still completely dead there may be a problem in one or more of the following areas:

    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.

Hi, I found this interesting bit of info

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.

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
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

which is the Sharp customer service line. But, you'll need to call
between 7 AM and 7 PM US Central time, and have your model number and
serial number ready.

Air conditioner not draining


Hello, some window units do not use a drain tube instead they use the condenser fan blade to scoop the condensate from the bottum of the base pan and splash the condenser coil to keep the condenser cool and also evaporate the condensate. Most of the time you can hear a "swishing sound" If the unit has a drain but is not draining then there could be a blockage that needs to cleaned.

It runs ok then shuts off and E1 appears the filter has been cleaned. what should I do now?


If you did not turn the unit OFF and unplug. it before changing the filter, do so now. Just repeat the process, but make sure the Master ON/OFF Switch is OFF and the unit is unplugged before removing and replacing the filter. Be sure the filter is properly installed.Wait at least 5 minutes, before plugging the unit back in and Turning the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. That should give the electronics time to rest themselves.

Hope this helps you.
