Something went wrong with the heat pump of your Friedrich air conditioner? Just look at the display for the error code and check it in the list below.

ERROR CODES LISTING FOR “WS” MODELS

E1SHORT CYCLE SITUATION: Defined as a compressor that starts and stops more frequently than it should (more than 6 times per hour).
E2KEYBOARD STUCK ERROR: If any key button is stuck or pressed for 20 seconds or more, the unit considers it stuck. If a key is stuck it will be ignored until released. If the “Mode” key is stuck, the unit’s function will default to Cool mode.
E3FROST PROBE OPEN: Normal operation is allowed. Replace probe.
E4FROST PROBE SHORT: Normal operation is allowed. Replace probe.
E5INDOOR PROBE OPEN: Control assumes indoor ambient temperature is 90 degrees F and unit will operate. Replace probe.
E6INDOOR PROBE SHORT: Control assumes ambient temperature is 90 degrees F and unit will operate. Replace probe. (See note and other infomation below)

ERROR CODES LISTING FOR “WE/WY” MODELS

E1SHORT CYCLE SITUATION: Defined as a compressor that starts and stops more frequently than it should (more than 6 times per hour).
E2KEYBOARD STUCK ERROR: If any key button is stuck or pressed for 20 seconds or more, the unit considers it stuck. If a key is stuck it will be ignored until released. If the “Mode” key is stuck, the unit’s function will default to Cool mode.
E3AMBIENT (INDOOR) AIR PROBE OPEN OR SHORT: Control will assume ambient temperature is 90 degrees F when in Cool mode and 60 degrees F when in Heat mode. Unit will operate (see note below).
E4EVAPORATOR TEMPERATURE PROBE OPEN OR SHORT: Normal operation is allowed. Replace probe (see note below).
E5CONDENSER TEMPERATURE PROBE OPEN OR SHORT: Normal operation is allowed. Replace probe.

Error CodeCode TranslationAction Taken by UnitPossible Cause
2An extreme low voltage condition exists <198V for 230V units and <239V for 265V units.Shut down unit. Display Error code and flash. Once voltage rises to normal level system power is restored.• Inadequate power supply
• Defective breaker
• Blown fuse
3Return air thermistor sensor open or short circuitSet return air sensor = 75°F. Alternately flash set point and error code. Leave unit running.• Defective sensor
4Indoor coil thermistor sensor open or short circuitSet ID coil temp = 40°F. Alternately flash set point and error code. Leave unit running.• Defective sensor
5Outdoor coil thermistor sensor open Or short circuitSet OD coil temp = 20°F. Alternately flash set point and error code. Automatically change over to Electric heat Mode only. Leave unit running.• Defective sensor
6If O.D. coil Temperature > 175 Deg F for 2 consecutive minutes. (Heat Pump models only)Alternately flash set point and error code. Shut unit down for 5 minutes, then try again 2 times. If it fails the 3rd time, shut down unit to prevent high head pressure.• Dirty coil
• Fan motor failure
• Restricted air flow
• Non-condensables in refrigeration system
7I.D coil temperature <30 Deg F for 2 consecutive minutes.Alternately flash set point and error code. Continue fan operation while the compressor is locked out until the indoor coil thermistor reaches 45° F, then energize the compres- sor. However, compressor must stil wait a lockout time of 180 to 240 seconds.• Dirty filters
• Dirty coil
• Fan motor failure
• Restricted airflow
• Improper refrigerant charge
• Restriction in refrigerant circuit
8Unit cycles (Heat or Cool demand) > 9 times per hourStore error code in memory. Keep unit running• Unit oversized
• Low load conditions
9Unit cycles (Heat or Cool demand) < 3 times per hourStore Error Code in memory. Keep unit running• Unit undersized
• High load conditions
10Room Freeze Protection triggeredAlternately flash set point and error code. Keep unit running.• Room temperature fell below 40° F
11No Signal to “GL or “GH" terminal (Remote Thermostat mode only)Shut down unit. Display error code and flash.• Defective remote thermostat
• Defective thermostat wiring
