This tutorial, we will listed down the full list of Midea AC error codes but before that, we would like to share some common issues of Midea AC. The following problems are not a malfunction and in most situations will not require repairs.
Midea AC common issues and possible causes
|Unit does not turn on when pressing ON/OFF button||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.|
|The unit changes from COOL/HEAT mode to FAN mode||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 indoor unit emits white mist||In humid regions, a large temperature difference between the|
room’s air and the conditioned air can cause white mist.
|Both the indoor and outdoor units emit white mist||When the unit restarts in HEAT mode after defrosting, white|
mist may be emitted due to moisture generated from the
|The indoor unit makes noises||A rushing air sound may occur when the louver resets its|
|Both the indoor unit and outdoor unit make noises||Squeaking sound: Normal expansion and contraction of|
plastic and metal parts caused by temperature changes during
operation can cause squeaking noises.
|The outdoor unit makes noises||The unit will make different sounds based on its current|
|Dust is emitted from either the indoor or outdoor unit||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
|The unit emits a bad odor||The unit may absorb odors from the environment (such as|
furniture, cooking, cigarettes, etc.) which will be emitted
|The fan of the outdoor unit does not operate||During operation, the fan speed is controlled to optimize|
|Operation is erratic, unpredictable, or unit is unresponsive||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.
• Press ON/OFF button on remote control to restart operation

The unit starts and stops frequently
|There’s too much or too little refrigerant in the system||Check for leaks and recharge the system with refrigerant.|
|Incompressible gas or moisture has entered the system||Evacuate and recharge the system with refrigerant|
|The compressor is broken||Replace the compressor|
|The voltage is too high or too low||Install a manostat to regulate the voltage|
If ANY of the following conditions occurs, turn off your unit immediately!
