Error Code F2 – Compressor out-of-step fault

The error code F2 is a compressor fault. The reasons can vary from refrigerant leakage to electrical failure. Users should not attempt to set things right themselves because the compressor is under a 10-year warranty. The Godrej AC technician is the right person to handle such problems.

Error Code F3 – IPM module fault

The error code F3 indicates an IPM module fault. One can attribute various reasons to the IPM module fault. It could be low refrigerant levels or incorrect installation of the IPM module. Low refrigerant can cause the compressor to get hot and cause compressor faults. Therefore, the AC technician is the ideal person to investigate these faults and repair the unit accordingly.

The error code F3 in the Green Inverter AC model is because of a WiFi module fault. Users can check the WiFi connection to rectify this error.

Error Code F4 – Compressor shell roof fault, protection error

The compressor has a protective shell to prevent damage. However, other issues like low refrigerant or external problems can damage the compressor shell roof. Under such circumstances, it is advisable to summon the AC technician to rectify the issue. In addition, the error code F4 also indicates a compressor protection fault, where the circuit breaker might trip. Therefore, users should not reset the circuit breaker without investigating other defects.

Error Code F5 – Discharge temperature sensor fault

Low refrigerant can cause the temperature levels to rise abnormally. It can lead to the snapping of the discharge temperature sensor. The correct solution is to replace the discharge temperature sensor. The AC technician is the right person to do so.

Error Code F6 – Suction temperature sensor fault

A snapped suction temperature sensor indicates the error code F6. There could be a refrigerant error. The AC technician should check the refrigerant levels and pressure before replacing the faulty sensor.

Error Code F7 – Outdoor coil temperature sensor fault

The refrigerant levels can reduce with continuous usage. There could be a leakage leading to low refrigerant levels. At times, the refrigerant levels can be high, especially after refilling. Under such circumstances, the outdoor coil temperature sensor can malfunction. The solution is to regulate the refrigerant levels and replace the outdoor coil temperature sensor. A sensor disconnection can also trigger the error code F7. So, the solution is to reconnect the sensor properly and restart the AC.

Error Code F8 – Outdoor ambient temperature sensor fault

An unbalanced refrigerant level can cause the snapping of the outdoor ambient temperature sensor. Users should book a service complaint and entrust the repair job to an authorized service technician. Checking the refrigerant levels and replacing the sensor are ideal solutions to the error code F8.

Error Code F9 – Outdoor DC fan fault

All air conditioners come equipped with an outdoor DC fan. The fan winding can become loose with continuous usage. The capacitor might malfunction, leading to the outdoor DC fan fault. The Godrej AC displays the error code F9. One can resolve the problem by rewinding the fan motor or replacing the capacitor.

Error Code E8 – Outdoor communication fault

A fault in the ODU PCB can result in an outdoor communication fault and the flashing of the error code F8. The remedy is to repair the PCB or replace it if faulty. Usually, the IDU and ODU PCBs are under warranty. So, it is better to summon a qualified Godrej AC technician to address such issues.

Error Codes Applicable to Fixed Speed Models

Here are some error codes connected to fixed speed models alone.
