There’s nothing worse on a hot or cold day than when your air conditioner stops working. Luckily for you, most system pauses are nothing to be too concerned about. However, if your Actron Air has suddenly stopped working, it may need some attention. And if your thermostat is displaying an Actron Air fault code, you’ll need to take note. Check out our handy guide below on what to do if you suddenly get an Actron Air fault code on your thermostat.
What to do if you get an Actron Air fault code
- First, make sure to note the Actron Air fault code to tell your technician. This is in case the next system reset doesn’t rectify the issue.
- Reset the system. For instructions on how to reset your system safely, head to our article How to Reset Your Actron Air Conditioner.
- Once reset, please take note of the temperature you have set it to and what zones you have turned on.
- If your system pauses again and displays another Actron Air fault code, call us on 02 8883 2377. Let us know the fault code, the Actron Air system you have, the temperature you set it to, and how many zones were operating. We will try and determine what the problem may be over the phone, and if it requires a technician we will organise one to come out as soon as possible.
- Do not try and repair the issue yourself. Air conditioners can be dangerous as they contain complex electrical wiring, and dangerous refigerants. If you continue to get an error, call a qualified technician.
