Types of Panasonic Aircon Error Codes

1. Non-inverter Panasonic Aircon Error Codes

2. Inverter Panasonic Aircon error codes

There are 2 types of split unit Aircon out there currently. Namely inverter Aircon and non-inverter Aircon. For Panasonic non-inverter Aircon, most of the time there wouldn’t be any error codes displaying. As such, the only possible way to determine the issues will be to manually troubleshoot it. For example, a non-inverter Panasonic Aircon will still be blowing out air, however the air coming out might not be cold at all. There would not be any Panasonic aircon error codes for such an issue. It would be best to contact an aircon technician immediately to fix the problem.


Whereas for an inverter Panasonic Aircon, if there are certain parts that are malfunctioning, the aircon itself would signal by showing blinking lights and the flap will close. This means the aircon will stop blowing cold air. We can detect the Panasonic Aircon by referring to the remote control which displays the Error Code for a specific problem. We will elaborate more on this subsequently.

Panasonic Aircon Light Blinking?

Panasonic Aircon has an advanced error code detection system. Unlike other common brands, the number of times the aircon timer light blinked does not reflects the error itself. It simply means that the Aircon is experiencing certain issues. To figure out what is the issue, simply hold on to the Grey cancel button on your Panasonic Aircon Remote Control. A “00” code will then be shown. Following which, press up or down to scroll through the error codes. When a long beeping sound is being heard, it shows that the error code is accurate. In other words, this specific error code is indicative on the issue with your air-conditioner.

2 Possible Scenarios:

1. Only one Fancoil in a multi split unit is showing Panasonic Error Codes

If the Aircon in your house is a multi split unit but only one of the Aircon Unit is showing an error code, it likely means that it is the Fancoil unit (indoor unit) that is malfunctioning. That is good news for you as the price for repair for an indoor unit is usually much cheaper than that of an outdoor unit. However, it could also be an indication of wiring issues instead of a problem with other parts.


2. If all units in a multi split unit is showing error code

If all of your units are showing Panasonic error code, your outdoor unit could be malfunctioning since it is connected to them. There might be some parts in the outdoor unit that needs replacement. Panasonic Aircon spare parts are rather expensive. Depending on your model though, you might be able to get refurbished Panasonic Aircon spare parts.

Where can you find Panasonic Aircon error code

Common Panasonic Aircon Error Codes

H11 indoor outdoor unit communication failure – wiring or PCB.

If only one unit is blinking, it could indicate indoor PCB or wiring. if all of the units are blinking

H14 intake air temperature sensor abnormality – indoor unit aircon thermistor

It could be the Aircon thermistor is malfunctioning. Or the clip that is connecting the indoor PCB and the Aircon thermistor is malfunctioning. In the case of the latter. The PCB is the one that requires replacement instead.

H15 compressor temperature sensor abnormality – outdoor thermistor

Depending on the Aircon model. There could be a few thermistor in the outdoor unit. This is likely an indication that it is the gas thermistor that is malfunctioning. However we will have to double check, as the error code might misdiagnose from time to time.

H19 – indoor fan motor mechanism lock.

It is likely an indication that the indoor fan motor is malfunctioning. However, it could also be that connecting part of the PCB to the indoor fan motor that is faulty. But most of the time it would mean that the indoor fan motor is faulty.

F97 Compressor overheating protection

This is likely an indication that the compressor is overheating. We would recommend doing a compressor chemical wash to get rid of the dirt. However, if it doesn’t get better, there could be underlying factors causing the overheat. Or the compressor itself could be faulty.

H97 Outdoor fan motor mechanism lock

For Panasonic Aircon fan motor it can get a little tricky. As there is a PCB component inside the fan motor itself. Hence when we test for the fan motor we will not be able to factor in the heat load of the fan motor after running for a long duration. Hence, a fan motor that is appearing fine for a short while might not do well after running for a long time. Nevertheless, H97 fan motor mechanism lock is likely an indication that the fan motor is malfunctioning. We have also experienced many times in which both the fan motor and PCB is malfunctioning. It could be the fan motor causing overcurrent to the PCB. Hence both components might require replacement too.


If your Panasonic Aircon is an inverter unit and the lights are blinking. Use a remote control to find out the error code of the unit. If you are a hands-on kind of person, you might be able to find out the Error Code from the indoor unit.
