Finding out the type of Midea Aircon Error Code

Midea Air-Conditioner will indicate an error code when the indoor unit recognizes an error. Identifying the type of error code allows us to know what’s the corresponding error. The engineer will then be able to target the issue directly upon reaching to the destination. Furthermore, when the indoor unit recognizes an error, the operation lamp will flash in a corresponding series. In addition, the timer lamp may turn on, off or begin flashing. Consequently, this will results in an error code being displayed.

What happen if there’s no Error Codes shown?

In the case of Error Diagnosis & Troubleshooting without any error codes shown, we can identify the possible cause via several common problem description:

1. Unit will not start

      • Might be due to the 3 min protection feature which is used to prevent the unit from overloading
      • Cannot be restarted within 3 minutes upon turning off the power

2. The Power Switch is on but fans will not start

3. The temperature on the display board cannot be set

4. Able to turn on the air-conditioner, but the wind is not cold (Hot)

5. Unit runs, but shortly stops

6. Starts up and stops frequently (intermittently)

7. Might be due to interference from cell phone towers and remote boosters

8. Runs continuously but insufficient cooling (heating)

9. Cool couldn’t change to heat

10. Unit is noisy

      • Indoor Unit – Will occur when the louver reset its position
      • Outdoor Unit – Depending on its current operating mode (Eg. Cool/Heat/Fan), different sounds will be produced
      • Both Indoor & Outdoor Unit (Squeaking Sound) – Normal expansion and contraction of plastic and metal parts due to the change in temperature

11. Unit emits bad odour

      • It’s common as the unit may absorb odour and smells from the environment and emits it during operation due to air circulation
