Why is my Air Conditioner showing errors?
Even if you have one of the best inverter ACs, your AC might occasionally act up and end up displaying error codes.
Before you are able to fix the issue, it’s useful to understand a few faulty aspects that might be causing the trouble.

- Technical faults
- No gas in the unit
- Issues in power supply
- Delay in fan or compressor starting
- Unforeseen weather conditions
Any of these issues can cause the breakdown of your AC and display an error.
What does an E2 error code mean?
If your air conditioning system displays an E2 error, it means there is an outdoor unit sensor error. You can detect a tiny LED light signaling this error on your air conditioner.
This issue arises when the evaporation temperature is lower than the temperature under the cooling or dry mode. This causes the compressor and outdoor fan motor to stop functioning.
How to fix the E2 error on my Air Conditioner?
To resolve the defect caused by the E2 error, check on the following features to make sure every part of the air conditioner is intact.
1. Indoor filter blockage
The filter might be blocked due to dust, dirt, or any other obstruction. Remove the filters and wash them properly with water.
2. Damaged Indoor unit fan blower
If the indoor fan blower is dirty or defective, your AC is likely to show an E2 error. In this case, you need to remove it. To fix it, the blower either needs to be cleaned properly or if it has been damaged, it will require replacement.
3. Faulty Indoor unit Fan Motor
An E2 error might appear due to a damaged or slow fan motor, which hinders the overall performance of the Air Conditioner. If this happens, you'll need to laminate the unit. You might want to hire an experienced technician to perform this job properly.
4. Coil clogged due to obstruction
The evaporator and condenser coils of the AC sometimes get clogged with dirt and require reconditioning. Remove the coil and wash it with a water pressure pump, restoring it back to its clean state.
5. Refrigeration leakage in the Outlet
There might be a leakage in the system preventing the smooth circulation of chilled air in the air conditioner. Check the outlets for air return and the entrance to ensure that the duct is not choked at any point.
