Model number of the Aircon with Mitsubishi Error code
Identify the model number of your Mitsubishi Aircon
Before we can dive into what error code your Mitsubishi Aircon is showing, we have to firstly identify what the model number of your Aircon is.
The model number of the Mitsubishi Aircon is usually located at the bottom of the Aircon unit as shown in the picture below. It is shown as MSXY-GE10VA-R1. Do note that the “R1” at the back of the model number is of paramount importance as the motherboard of R1 and R2 version could be different. However, there might be some parts that are similar between these 2 versions. Therefore it is best to give us a call at 96515152 if you’re in doubt for free consultation.
Mitsubishi Aircon Error Code: Inverter or non-Inverter
This is a very important factor. If your Mitsubishi Aircon unit is non-inverter, there could be other issues that will not reflect as error codes. Hence, if you are able to let us know if this is inverter or non-inverter unit over the phone, we will be able to narrow down the issues more accurately for you! For Mitsubishi Aircon, you can easily identify is it is inverter or non-inverter just by looking at the fancoil. Look at the entire fancoil, if it indicates “INVERTER” unit below “MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC”, it is an inverter unit. Otherwise, it is a non-inverter unit.

Identify the issue with the aircon.
Is the Aircon cold? Are your Mitsubishi Starmex Aircon lights blinking? Blinking lights indicate Mitsubishi Aircon Error Codes. If the lights are blinking, proceed with the next step.
Identify if it is a multi split or single split unit.
If this is a multi split unit, find out how many indoor units that your Mitsubishi Starmex Aircon lights are blinking. For example, if this is system 3 but there is only one unit showing Mitsubishi Aircon error code, the problem is likely due to parts defect in that particular Mitsubishi indoor unit instead of the outdoor unit. On the other hand, if there are multiple units showing error codes, the outdoor unit is likely faulty instead. Typically the price for repair of the indoor unit is much cheaper than that of the outdoor unit.
Prepare and find out the model number of the indoor and outdoor unit which can be found here.
Open up the cover of the air conditioner.
The troubleshooting code can be found on the right side of the air conditioner.
As seen in the picture below, this error code is pertaining to Mitsubishi Electric Starmex msy-ge10va-r1.
Identify the number of times the light is blinking and tally it with the error code found on the inside of the unit.
What does each Mitsubishi Aircon error code mean?
Referring to the picture as shown above, we will briefly describe what each error code means. Additionally, we will be providing you with the relevant Mitsubishi Starmex Aircon Troubleshooting. Do note that there might be different light indicators for different model of Mitsubishi Aircon. As such, you are advised to check with us if your Mitsubishi Aircon is of a different unit.
First of all, do check if the flap is properly close off. If it is not, your Mitsubishi Starmex lights will be blinking continuous even if there is no issue. However, if your flap is properly connected, it could be that an issue with the wiring , or the indoor or outdoor PCB.
Blinking Twice (x2)
This Mitsubishi Aircon error code would indicate that your indoor thermistor may be having an issue. If yours is a multi-split unit, do check if the other Aircon units are blinking too. There should only be one unit of Mitsubishi Starmex lights blinking twice. However, it could also be the case that both the indoor thermistor and indoor PCB have problems.
Blinking Thrice (x3)
This should be due to a fault with indoor fan motor. However, you will also need an experienced technician to check if the indoor unit has been damaged by the fan motor. This is because the error code may only be indicating that the fan motor is damaged. It is possible that the indoor PCB is damaged as well.
Blinking 7 times
For this error code, it is likely due to malfunctioning of the PCB in the outdoor unit. Do note that there may be 1-3 PCBs in the outdoor unit. As such, you might have to open up the compressor to check further. However, this is a dangerous task as most compressor units are located on an Aircon bracket. You will need proper safety equipment to check and diagnose. Never attempt to check on the compressor on you own due to safety concerns!
