Midea AC Troubleshooting

Midea AC Error Codes and Troubleshooting
Midea AC Error Codes and Troubleshooting

When troubles occur, please check the following points before contacting a repair company.

Problem: Poor Cooling Performance

Possible Causes:

  1. Temperature setting may be higher than ambient room temperature
  2. The heat exchanger on the indoor or outdoor unit is dirty
  3. The air filter is dirty
  4. The air inlet or outlet of either unit is blocked
  5. Doors and windows are open
  6. Excessive heat is generated by sunlight
  7. Too many sources of heat in the room (people, computers, electronics, etc.)
  8. Low refrigerant due to leak or long-term use
  9. SILENCE function is activated

Solution:

  1. Lower the temperature setting
  2. Clean the affected heat exchanger
  3. Remove the filter and clean it according to instructions
  4. Turn the unit off, remove the obstruction and turn it back on
  5. Make sure that all doors and windows are closed while operating the unit
  6. Close windows and curtains during periods of high heat or bright sunshine
  7. Reduce amount of heat sources
  8. Check for leaks, re-seal if necessary and top off refrigerant
  9. SILENCE function can lower product performance by reducing operating frequency. Turn off SILENCE function.

Problem: The unit is not working

Possible Causes:

  1. Power failure
  2. The power is turned off
  3. The fuse is burned out
  4. Remote control batteries are dead
  5. The Unit’s 3-minute protection has been activated
  6. Timer is activated

Solution:

  1. Wait for the power to be restored
  2. Turn on the power
  3. Replace the fuse
  4. Replace batteries
  5. Wait three minutes after restarting the unit
  6. Turn timer off

Problem: The unit starts and stops frequently

Possible Causes:

  1. There’s too much or too little refrigerant in the system
  2. Incompressible gas or moisture has entered the system
  3. The compressor is broken
  4. The voltage is too high or too low

Solution:

  1. Check for leaks and recharge the system with refrigerant
  2. Evacuate and recharge the system with refrigerant
  3. Replace the compressor
  4. Install a manostat to regulate the voltage

Problem: Poor heating performance

Possible Causes:

  1. The outdoor temperature is lower than 7°C (44.5°F)
  2. Cold air is entering through doors and windows
  3. Low refrigerant due to leak or long-term use

Solution:

  1. Use auxiliary heating device
  2. Make sure that all doors and windows are closed during use
  3. Check for leaks, re-seal if necessary and top off refrigerant

NOTE: If your problem persists after performing the checks and diagnostics above, turn off your unit immediately and contact an authorized service center.

Common Issues

The following problems are not a malfunction and in most situations will not require repairs.

Issue: Unit does not turn on when pressing ON/OFF button

Possible Causes: The Unit has a 3-minute protection feature that prevents the unit from overloading. The unit cannot be restarted within three minutes of being turned off

Issue: The unit changes from COOL/HEAT mode to FAN mode

Possible Causes:

  • The unit may change its setting to prevent frost from forming on the unit. Once the temperature increases, the unit will start operating in the previously selected mode again.
  • The set temperature has been reached, at which point the unit turns off the compressor. The unit will continue operating when the temperature fluctuates again.

Issue: The indoor unit emits white mist

Possible Causes: In humid regions, a large temperature difference between the room’s air and the conditioned air can cause white mist.

Issue: Both the indoor and outdoor units emit white mist

Possible Causes: When the unit restarts in HEAT mode after defrosting, white mist may be emitted due to moisture generated from the defrosting process.

Issue: The indoor unit makes noises

Possible Causes:

  • A rushing air sound may occur when the louver resets its position.
  • A squeaking sound may occur after running the unit in HEAT mode due to expansion and contraction of the unit’s plastic parts.

Issue: Both the indoor unit and outdoor unit make noises

Possible Causes:

  • Low hissing sound during operation: This is normal and is caused by refrigerant gas flowing through both indoor and outdoor units.
  • Low hissing sound when the system starts, has just stopped running, or is defrosting: This noise is normal and is caused by the refrigerant gas stopping or changing direction.
  • Squeaking sound: Normal expansion and contraction of plastic and metal parts caused by temperature changes during operation can cause squeaking noises.

Issue: The outdoor unit makes noises

Possible Causes: The unit will make different sounds based on its current operating mode.

Issue: Dust is emitted from either the indoor or outdoor unit

Possible Causes: The unit may accumulate dust during extended periods of non-use, which will be emitted when the unit is turned on. This can be mitigated by covering the unit during long periods of inactivity.

Issue: The unit emits a bad odor

Possible Causes:

  • The unit may absorb odors from the environment (such as furniture, cooking, cigarettes, etc.) which will be emitted during operations.
  • The unit’s filters have become moldy and should be cleaned.

Issue: The fan of the outdoor unit does not operate

Possible Causes: During operation, the fan speed is controlled to optimize product operation.

Issue: Operation is erratic, unpredictable, or unit is unresponsive

Possible Causes: Interference from cell phone towers and remote boosters may cause the unit to malfunction. In this case, try the following: Disconnect the power, then reconnect or Press ON/OFF button on remote control to restart operation.

NOTE: If problem persists, contact a local dealer or your nearest customer service center. Provide them with a detailed description of the unit malfunction as well as your model number.
