Mitsubishi Thermostat Error Codes

In case of breakage, the Mitsubishi thermostat will show you different fault codes. You could use the tables below to understand the cause of the problem. Each table refers to 4 models of Mitsubishi thermostats. With the help of this information, you can determine the cause of failure and to fix it. Often the problem can be solved without repairman.

Mitsubishi Thermostat Error Codes

Mitsubishi MD315301 Thermostat Error Codes

FAULT CODEDESCRIPTION
F3Low pressure switch failure - check connection on the board and continuity of switch
F5High pressure switch failure - check connection onto board and continuity of switch
F9Both pressure switch contacts are open at the same time - check connection onto board and continuity of switch and for a potential board failure
EAMis-wiring fault between FTC and Ecodan - check S1 ,S2,S3 also check voltages and comms
EBMis-wiring fault between FTC and Ecodan - Check S1 ,S2,S3 also check voltages and comms
ECUnit cannot finish start up process - generally caused by a comms fault
U1Ecodan high pressure fault - mainly caused by incorrect water flow rates - check with flow setter
U2Ecodan high compressor discharge temperature - mainly caused by refrigerant shortage or dirty condenser
U3Ecodan discharge thermistor problem - mainly caused by TH4 discharge thermistor - open/close circuit
U4Open or close circuit Ecodan thermistors (TH3, TH32, TH33, TH6, TH7, TH8) - open or close circuit or disconnected from main board
U5Inverter heat sink overheat protection (W50 and W85 models 77°C, HW140 model 95°C - reduced air flow through Ecodan - faulty fan motor
U6Inverter/Compressor over current - system indicates possible I PM error
U8Ecodan fan motor problem - mainly caused by DC fan motor being disconnected, connected or obstructed with the power on or possible main board fault
U9Over voltage or under voltage - mainly caused by either CN2 or CN5 loose or disconnected or decrease of mains power supply
UDOverheat protection TH3 s 70°C or 63 HS s 70°C saturation temperature
UFCompressor over current/Compressor lock - occurs within 30 seconds of compressor start
UHAbnormal running current - < 1A or > 40A detected during operation - check CN5 connections
ULOpen circuit (63L)
UPOver current detected after 30 seconds of operation - do an inverter test to determine outputs balanced
EOTransmitting Error PAR W21 - check refrigerant address on SW1 of Ecodan

Mitsubishi SMD315301 Thermostat Error Codes

FAULT CODE1 DESCRIPTION
E1Faulty controller
E3Transmitting Error (PAR W21) - check refrigerant address on SW1 of Ecodan
E4Receiving Error (PAR W21) - check refrigerant address of SW1 on Ecodan
E5Receiving Error (PAR W21) - check refrigerant address of SW1 on Ecodan
E6Indoor/Outdoor communication error - mainly due to Ecodan being powered up before FTC(2)
E8Indoor/Outdoor communication error - mainly due to Ecodan being powered up before FTC(2)
E9Indoor/Outdoor communication error - mainly due to Ecodan being powered up before FTC(2)
EFNon-defined error code - noise interference - power down Ecodan for 30 seconds then switch back on
EDSerial communication fault between Ecodan main board and Ecodan inverter board - mainly due to loose CN2 or CN5 cable
P1Flow temp sensor fault - TH1 not connected, short or open circuit
P6Over heating at heat exchanger - lack of water flow, air in the system, flow rate incorrectly set, blockage or pump problem
P8No temp change at plate heat exchanger - problem with flow rate (too high) - incorrect sizing of system
P9TH5 Fault - TH5 not connected, short or open circuit, FTC not configured for heating only
PEInlet water temp fault - TH32 is below 10°C whilst compressor is in operation - possible thermistor out of range, short of gas, incorrect sizing of radiator or problem in the water circuit (blockage, pump failure etc)

Check codeDiagnosisCauseCheck points
EOSignal transmitting/receiving error (Indoor controller does not respond to remote controller signal.)1) Bad contact of transmission wire1) Check the transmission wire.
2) Signal transmitting/receiving circuit is abnormal.2) Check with another remote controller. If “EO" is still indicated, replace the indoor controller board.
If other check code appears, replace the original remote controller.
P1Abnormality of room temperature thermistor 1) Bad contact of thermistor1) Check the thermistor.
2) Damaged thermistor2) Measure the resistance of the thermistor. Normal resistance should be as follows. 32°F--15K2 86° F 4.3kfi 50°F 9.6kni04°F 3.0kQ 68°F 6.3kH
P2Abnormality of indoor coil thermistor If the resistance is normal, replace the indoor controller board.
P3Signal transmission error (Remote controller does not respond to indoor controller signal.)1) Bad contact of transmission wire1) Check the transmission wire.
2) Signal transmitting/receiving circuit is abnormal.2) Check with another remote controller. If “P3" is still indicated, replace the indoor board. If other check code appears, replace the original remote controller.
3) Wrong operation due to noise wave emitted by other appliances3) Short-circuit between
• Second unit in twin control
• Second and third units in triple control
• Sub units in group control
P4Abnormality of drain sensor1) Bad contact of transmission wire1) Check the connector.
2) Damaged thermistor2) Measure the resistance of the thermistor As for the normal resistance, refer to the case of P1.
If the resistance is normal, replace the indoor controller board.
P5Malfunction of drain pump1) Malfunction of drain pump1) Check the drain pump.
2) Damaged drain sensor2) • Check the drain sensor.
• Check the drain sensor heater.
If the resistance is normal, replace the indoor controller board.
P6Coil frost protection is working.1) Short cycle of air cycle1) Clear obstructions from the air cycle.
2) Dirty air filter2) Clean the air filter
3) Damaged fan3) Check the fan.
4) Abnormal refrigerant4) Check the refrigerant temperature.
P7System error1) Wrong address-setting1) Check the address-setting.
2) Signal transmitting/receiving circuit of remote controller is abnormal.2) Check with another remote controller. If check code other than “P7" appears, replace the original remote controller.
3) Wrong SW6-setting3) Check SW6 setting.
