In case of malfunction (such as bad smell), turn off the power immediately and contact the  service center.* Do not repair the air conditioner by yourself. Incorrect repairs may cause fire. Please contact the service center.* The appliance should not be used by children without supervision.

Once a failure occurs with the indoor unit in operation, the green unit LED flashes at intervals of 0.5 seconds.
The fault code is deduced from the number of times the green LED flashes, blocking unit operation. Between one flash cycle and the next one, a pause of 5 seconds elapses.

Gree Air Conditioners Troubleshooting

*Problem

Water leaking from the indoor unit into the room.

Cause/Solution

Cause: While it is normal for the system to generate condensate water in coolingmode, it is designed to drain this water via a condensate drain system to a safe location.

Solution: If water is leaking into the room, it may indicate one of the following

  • The indoor unit is not level right to left. Level indoor unit.
  • The condensate drain pipe is restricted or plugged.All restrictions must be removed to allow continuous drainage by gravity.
  • If problem persists,contact a qualified service professional for assistance

*Problem

Wireless remote controller does not work.

Cause/Solution

Cause: There are a number of possible reasons

Solution: Check the following:

  • The batteries might be low. Change the batteries.
  • The remote controller must be within 25 ft. (7.5 m) with no obstructions of the indoor unit. If remote controller needs to be replaced,contact a qualified service professional for assistance. In the meantime, use the Aux Button to operate the system.

*Problem

The unit will not deliver air

Cause/Solution

Cause: There are a number of system functions that will prevent air flow.

Solution: Check for the following:

  • In heating mode, the indoor fan may not start for three minutes if the room temperature is very low.This is to prevent blowing cold air.
  • In heat mode, if the outdoor temperature is low and humidity is high, the system may need to defrost for up to 10 minutes before beginning a heating cycle.
  • In dry mode, the indoor fan may stop for up to three minutes during the compressor off delay.
  • Otherwise, you should contact a qualified service professional for assistance

*Problem

Moisture orcondensation on the discharge air louvers or outlet vents.

Cause/Solution

Cause: It is normal for the system to develop condensation or moisture on the discharge air louvers when cooling warm humid air for a long period of time.

Solution: The condensation or moisture will disappear as the system cools and dehumidifies the room space.

*Problem

System does not restart

Cause/Solution

Cause: The system has a built-in three-minute delay to prevent short and/or rapid cycling of the compressor.

Solution: Wait three minutes for the protection delay to expire.

*Problem

Indoor unit emits unpleasant odor when started

Cause/Solution

Cause: Typically unpleasant odors are the result of mold or mildew forming on the coil surfaces or the air filter.

Solution: Wash indoor air filter in warm water with mild cleaner. If odors persist, contact a qualified service professional to clean the coil surfaces.

*Problem

You hear a“water flowing”sound

Cause/Solution

Cause: It is normal for the system to make“water flowing”or“gurgling”sounds from refrigerant pressures equalizing when the compressor starts and stops.

Solution: The noises should discontinue as the refrigerant system equalizes after two or three minute.

*Problem

A thin fog or vapor coming out of the indoor unit when system is running

Cause/Solution

Cause: It is normal for the system to emit a slight fog or water vapor when cooling extremely humid warm air.

Solution: The fog or water vapor will disappear as the system cools and dehumidifies the room space

*Problem

The system will not run

Cause/Solution

Cause: There are a number of situations that will prevent the system from running.

Solution: Check for the following:

  • Circuit breaker is “tripped” or “turned off.”
  • Power button of remote is not turned on.
  • Batteries in the remote controller are low.
  • Remote controller is in sleep mode or timer mode.
  • Otherwise,contact a qualified service professional for assistance

*Problem

Wireless remote controller does not work

Cause/Solution

Cause: There are a number of possible reasons

Solution: Check the following:

  • The batteries might be low. Change the batteries.
  • The remote controller must be within 25 ft. (7.5 m) with no obstructions of the indoor unit. If remote controller needs to be replaced,contact a qualified service professional for assistance. In the meantime, use the Aux Button to operate the system.

*Problem

Cause: While it is normal for the system to generate condensate water in cooling mode, it is designed to drain this water via a condensate drain system to a safe location.

Solution: If water is leaking into the room, it may indicate one of the following.

  • The indoor unit is not level right to left. Level indoor unit.
  • The condensate drain pipe is restricted or plugged.All restrictions must be removed to allow continuous drainage by gravity.
  • If problem persists, contact a qualified service professional for assistance
