ALARM CODES

An active alarm is represented by a fl ashing alarm code  numeral. There are 43 alarms in all. Not all the alarms  are critical enough to shut down the system. Some  alarms fl ag the problem to bring it to the attention of  the operator or technician while allowing the system to  continue to operate.

ALARM TROUBLE SHOOTING

Refrigerant System Alarm Codes

(01, 02, 03, 04, 09, 10, 11, 12)
The first 12 alarms involve controls intended to
protect the compressors. Each compressor system is
equipped with external circuitry monitoring hardware
intended to protect the compressor in case the operating
characteristics of the refrigerant system fall outside the
safe operating envelope for the compressor. The type of
protection varies depending on the type of compressor
used.

Low Pressure Cutout Alarm (09, 10, 11, 12)
Since tandem compressors are used there is a single low
pressure switch for system 1 and one for system 2. If
the low pressure switch opens both of the compressors
for that system will be turned off. If the low pressure
switch for system 1, (compressors 1A, 1B), opens it will
generate both a 09 and 10 alarm code. Likewise if the
low pressure switch opens for system 2, (compressors
2A, 2B), opens it will generate both an 11 and 12 alarm
code.
The low pressure switch opens at 50 PSIG and closes
at 71 PSIG. In order to generate a low pressure lockout
the high pressure switch must open three times within
a 2 hour window.
During the start up of the compressor system the low
pressure switch input is ignored for 30 seconds. After
the 30 second delay if the low pressure switch circuit
opens for 5 seconds the Unit Controller will turn off
both compressors for the system.
24 VAC power is supplied to the system 1 low pressure
switch circuit from wire 395 at terminal LPS1 of the P15
connector. The binary input back to the Unit Controller
from the low pressure switch is wire 396 at terminal
LPS1 of the P15 connector. The above input is then
jumpered to terminal LPS2 of the P15 connector.
24 VAC power is supplied to the system 2 low pressure
switch circuit from wire 433 at terminal LPS3 of the P16
connector. The binary input back to the Unit Controller
from the low pressure switch is wire 434 at terminal
LPS3 of the P16 connector. The above input is then
jumpered to terminal LPS4 of the P16 connector.

Limit Switch Alarms (13, 14, 15)
The control monitors the limit switch status for each of
the heating sections installed. If the limit switch circuit
opens the control de-energizes the heat section output
for the section with the open limit circuit and energizes
the indoor blower output. The supply fan performs a
Fan Delay Off when the limit re-closes.
In order to generate a limit lockout the limit switch must
open three times within a 2-hour window.
The limit input for heat section 1 is located at terminal
LIM1 wire 507 of the P10 connector. The limit input
for heat section 2 is located at terminal LIM2 wire 522
of the P10 connector. The limit input for heat section
3 is located at terminal LIM3 wire 533 of the P10
connector.

Gas Heating Alarms (16, 17, 18)
The Unit Controller monitors the output to the gas valve.
If the Unit Controller is calling for the operation of the
heat stage and voltage is not present after 5 continuous
minutes it will generate an alarm.

Space Temperature Sensor Alarm (19)
This alarm indicates the space temperature input is
either open or shorted. The display will show a value
of –40.0° F. The space temperature input is at ST and
GND of the P6 connector. To trouble shoot compare the
resistance of the input to the temperature in the space
using Table 8-1.

Supply Air Temperature Sensor Alarm (20)
This alarm indicates the supply air temperature input is
either open or shorted. The display will show a value
of –40.0° F. The supply air temperature input is at
SAT+ and SAT- of the P11 connector. To trouble shoot
compare the resistance of the input to the actual supply
air temperature using Table 8-1.
Return Air Temperature Sensor Alarm (21)
This alarm indicates the return air temperature input is
either open or shorted. The display will show a value
of –40.0° F. The return air temperature input is at
RAT+ and RAT- of the P11 connector. To trouble shoot
compare the resistance of the input to the actual return
air temperature using Table 8-1.
Outdoor Air Temperature Sensor Alarm (22)
This alarm indicates the outdoor air temperature input
is either open or shorted. The display will show a
value of –40.0° F. The outdoor air temperature input
is at OAT+ and OAT- of the P11 connector. To trouble
shoot compare the resistance of the input to the actual
outdoor air temperature using Table 8-1.

    Thanks for helping me on error code 42… duct static pressure.. first tech said he changed the filters.. I checked and found different set of filters down stream inside the supply duct.. Unit for a lab..

    Good day,

    I have a problem with the roof top device ARH-075-AB, code S661752173.
    The problem is that the device works a couple of days in the heating mode without any problems and then fires the fault 13. On the unit we checked all components, compressor, turbine, fans, switches, freon in the system, everything is in good condition. The problem is that there are no rules when a mistake occurs, sometimes it works for a few days, sometimes for a few hours. Can you help me solve the problem?
