Question about Sharp AF-S100FX Air Conditioner
Air conditioner has to be reset
If your a/c unit is portable,and E1 code most always is "air filter cleaning time" or" water level to high ".
To reset air filter interval turn unit off at power switch then unplug.Hold power switch down while plugging in....unit will go through a short self check then beep.Release power button after beep.Unit should now be reset.
To reset water level....just drain some.....not all.
Most portables use water for increase cooling......so leave some in.

The Sharp e1 problem is a timer that is pretending to demand that you clean the filter. It stops the machine every 720 hours and forces you to do a procedure to get it to go away.
There are 2 possible procedures.
1) Unplug the machine. Hold down the power button while you plug the machine in and wait for a beep about 5 seconds long. Let go of the power button. Unplug the machine. Plug it back in.
2) Unplug the machine. Hold down the mode button while plugging the machine back in and waiting for a beep of about 3 seconds duration. Let go of the mode button. The machine will start. Turn the machine off by pressing the power button. Resume trying to use the machine normally.
If these don't work, the "demand to clean filter" timer is broken and you will need to buy parts to repair the machine.

Ok...so I posted "this solution doesn't work" about 30 minutes ago. I found this answer online. This one worked!! Very poor writing in the instuction manual I guess! Their solution was not even close! "Sharp window A/C - Every thirty days the AFX 12,000 BTU unit is set to turn off automatically and display an E! error to remind you to clean the air filter. To restart, unplug the unit. Hold down the power button and plug in. Wait for the beep and then unplug. Plug in again and the unit should restart. If there is is no beep there may be a mechanical problem."

I have a G.E. window air conditioner that kept giving me the E1 error code and would not allow the unit to turn on. After much frustration (and no results from following various tips on internet forums) I decided that I had nothing to lose by taking the thing apart. After all, it was way past the warranty period.
Make sure the unit is unplugged before doing any of the following.
When I took off the cover (not the front grill, but the metal cover over all the internal parts) I found a small black envelope stuck to the top of the styrofoam inside the unit. What an inconvenient place to find what the error codes mean! It obviously means they don't want the average customer to know any of this. "E1" means a short or open circuit, unit inoperable.
With that in mind I noticed that the black two conductor sensor wire was broken. This is the wire that leads from the sensor on the front fins to the control circuit board. After soldering it back together and wrapping it well with electrical tape the unit works perfectly.
If you don't wish to try soldering the wire, it can be unplugged from the circuit board. I would not be surprised if you can order a new sensor (with wire and plug attached) from a G.E. parts supplier.
By the way, this particular G.E. 6100 BTU air conditioner was manufactured by Samsung electronics.
