You’ve lost the user’s manual where every Toshiba air error code is explained? No need to worry, as we have all the fault codes explained in the list below.
- The list contains the following information for every fault code:
- the parts of the air conditioner that are probably not working;
- judging device;
- a brief error description, as well as the parts that should be checked.
In addition to this, every Toshiba air error code is provided with the information on the conditioner status. This column explains whether the conditioning system is working or whether it has experienced an entire stop or auto-reset.
