  1. I have 2.2 message with all the other symbols lights up and the system just stop working. Can someone tell me what that means and how do I get it works again? I tried to remove the battery from the remote control and shut down the system and left it for a while and when I put the power back on and put the batteries back on the remote control the system doing the same thing again. Please help

  2. I have an e6 code, need to know where I can gets parts to repair inside or outside sensor or board for model#kfr-25gw/bmve.

  3. I recently had the E2 error code on 2 units a KFR-35GW/BMVE and KFR-50GW/BMVE. I recommend checking the refrigerant. Our’s was extremely low and having it filled/charged resolved the issue. In all of the Googling, this solution never came up.

    Initially the error code would come on and flipping the breaker off for 10 mins or so would reset it and it would work. Probably did this about 10 times every so often (like over weeks). Eventually this did not work and researching online led us to believe that either the indoor pipe sensor or indoor PCB was bad. Spent lots of time online trying to find these replacement parts to no avail. Was finally able to get a friend of a friend that is an A/C person to check them out and discovered the Freon was too low. Hope this helps someone else out there stuck with these “unserviceable” units.

  4. My Shinco after picking up and starts cooling, it shows Protection red light and it also stop cooling. How can i fix that problem?
