"Cool" mode shuts off

\015 After running for a few minutes, the cool mode shuts off and I get a flashing "E-1" error code. If I unplug and plug in the unit, the unit starts and the same cycle happens again after a few minutes. Sincere thanks for your suggestions.\015

Answers :

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. \015\012\015\012However, 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."
We recently experienced a sever thunderstorm in which my unit got wet. A few hours later it shut off with an E1 error code. I simply placed the unit on its back allowing it to drain completely of fluid and plugged it back in and it worked fine

I have a Ruud Heat Pump system. The outside unit makes a humming sound in either heat or cooling modes. The fan won't come on. In cooling mode, the compressor starts up, but them shuts off after about a minute.

Sounds like your condencer fan motor is stuck. Can you take a long rod and when the power is off to the outside unit, spin the fan blade? Maybe it will be enough to get it working again. ... Air Conditioners

Everstar mpk10cr grinding compressor I think.... Fan works fine, will kick into cool mode (elevated fan level) for a few seconds then it sounds like the compressor has a loose mount or something... sometimes it rattles for a few minutes (and cools) but sometimes it shuts the rattling off as fast as it starts and doesnt really ''cool'' or dehumidify.... Some days its works fine all day, others it just never really gets its ''**** together'' so to speak... Can users recharge the coolant themselve

Our York P4HUB12N08001A furnace has an A/C unit installed and we are running it in cool mode for the summer. Yesterday, my wife noticed a repeated hum from the furnace, and the house was 4 degrees warmer than it should be. She said that it would hum a couple minutes, turn off, then repeat a little later. I told her to shut it off, and I'd look at it when I got home. With the two covers off the furnace, I returned power to it, then pressed the safety switch so I could see everything happening. Th

My thermostat is set on 72....but shows it is 76 in the house. I shut it off yesterday in case it was freezing up. 2 hours later, turned it back on and it cooled great the rest of the evening. I woke up at 3:00 am this morning and was doing the same thing. I shut it off for several hours, now has cool air blowing, but not as cool as it should and still shows 76. Cool flashing on the thermostat.

It sounds as thought the coils on the unit need to be cleaned, make sure it is draining, if it still freezes up after cleaning coils and checking for draining then the unit has a leak and needs to fixed/charged. Hope this helps tim ... Air Conditioners
