Mini Split Error Code List

  • Pioneer Error Codes and Meanings
  • Carrier Error Codes and Meanings
  • Cooper and Hunter Error Codes and Meanings
  • Daikin Error Codes and Meanings
  • Mini split units are nice to have and usually very reliable heating and cooling packages.

    Unfortunately errors can happen which is usually displayed on the indoor wall unit.

    This error can be looked up in a manual to see what the meaning is.

    For example, an E1 error code on a Pioneer Mini Split means there is a problem with the Indoor/Outdoor units communication.
    Mini Split Error Code List and Meanings
    Often error codes can be manufacture specific and sometimes different models can have different errors codes.

    The best way to troubleshoot any code is to have the manual for your unit.

    Sometimes finding a manual can be difficult so here we list the known error codes for big name mini split manufactures.

    Keep in mind that there may be differences between models but most the codes should match.

      IPC mini split heat pump model … DLF4HH12K1A1 error code F3 . Could you tell me what it means.
      Thanks

      My Pioneer Mini Split 9000 BTU is beeping every ten seconds or so and showing 88 and the WiFi signal. Not sure what code that is as it is not on the list. Any help or info would be appreciated

      I have a Carrier unit giving me an L3 code – don’t see it listed above. Any ideas what might be going wrong? It’s not heating…

        I have a d2 code too on my pioneer split unit and cannot find out what it means. I spoke with a technician who told me he doesn’t know either. Did you happen to find out what it means?

          I also have this same d2 code on mine. Did you ever figure out what it means?

      My two indor units show an F1 error, it is brand new out of the box and had an ac guy put the vacuum pu,p and all the connections, we tested all the power and grounds, we looked at the mother board and could not find any loose connections.
