Question about Sharp AF-S120FX Air Conditioner

Sharp Air Conditioner

I have a Sharp window mount air conditioner. It reads "E1" after the power goes out. I've had to go through a certain procedure involving unplugging for a period of time and then plugging it back in and pushing 2 buttons at the same time... I just don't remember the procedure. Can you find out for me?

    I have the same problem with the E1 code and don't remember the two buttons I have to press. I' cleaned the vent and unplugged it for a few minuets and reset it and it will run for about 5-10 min and then cut off

    I have a Sharp Window Air Conditioner and it keeps reading " E1". We had a lightning storm last night and the power went off and I think this is why I am having the problem. I've tried un-plugging the unit and then plugging it back in and it will only run for about 10 mintues then shuts off again. I need to know what to do to fix the problem?

    after a while it shuts off and flashes e1

  • Anonymous Sep 26, 2008

    i tried the 5 second hold the button trick and after ten more minutes of operation the unit stops and E1 dispalys (again and again). So, because of this stupid logic problem I will have to trash this unit. If I could learn to wake up every 10 minutes to run the reset procedure the unit would be just great. I can't help thinking there should be a control wire I could cut to disable this sensor. This is a Sharp AF-S85 unit but the problem is the same.

This is from Sharp's website...apparently an addendum to the instruction booklet. When you get E1:
Unplug. Press and keep pressing the On/Off button on the unit. Plug unit back in. Wait until unit beeps (about 5 seconds) then release On/Off button. Unplug unit. Plug unit back in.
You're good to go.

I tried it. Didn't work. Tried again several different ways and then kicked the AC out the window. I wish I lived on a higher floor so it could have dropped further.

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.

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.

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:

E1 ERRORE COMES IN M Y AC WHICH REASONS

Error code on air conditioner e1


Search for this problem on web or contact Sharp Technical Support for the following procedure:

1. Unplug unit.
2. Hold down power button while plugging in unit. It will do a short self-test and then beep. leaving unit off.
3. Release power button and unplug.
4. Plug in again and turn on normally. This should last for about 720 hours, at which point the E1 error will come back and you need to follow the procedure again. (You might as well clean the air filter at this point just in case it really needed it...)

Haier wall-unit AC wont work


Try unplugging the machine, waiting a couple minutes, then holding down the power button as you plug it back in. Hopefully you will hear a "beep". Then unplug it again, wait a couple minutes, and plug it back in. This procedure works for clearing the "E1" code from some of the Sharp models, so maybe you will get lucky and the same manufacturer made the control board in your machine! Couldn't hurt to try it out. ;)
