Has your air conditioner got stuck suddenly? This isn’t a big deal. Here are the reasons which are causing your air conditioner’s control panel to malfunction:

Control Panel Is Locked

The control panel has a lock that stops the air conditioner panel from working when the lock is turned ON.

It is placed in GE appliances as a security measure which also acts like a child lock and protects the panel from the reach of children.

Check if the lock is activated and deactivate it by holding a warm rinse and auto soak button for 3 seconds.

However, it varies from model to model. Some models’ control lock is deactivated by the warm rinse or auto soak button. It is better to consult a professional for assistance.

Thermostat Is Malfunctioning

The thermostat controls and monitors the water’s temperature and signals the heating element to heat the water.

Also, it is placed as a security measure and turns off the machine and the control panel if the washer is overheated, thereby protecting the internal parts of the washer. Here is the guide to testing the thermostat.

Control Board Issue

A control board is, you can say, the brain of the air conditioner. It controls all the functionality. If the control board malfunctions, none of the other functions will work.

If the control board has an issue, none of the features will work, and the control board will get stuck. If you know electric circuits, test the circuits with a multimeter to see whether they are working fine or not.

If the circuit has an issue, you must call a professional to repair/replace the circuit.

Breaker Gets Tripped

The breaker gets tripped upon overloading. If you are using many appliances on the same circuit as if you are using iron and an air conditioner, let’s say iron consumes 1100. An air conditioner consumes 1200 watts of electricity.

It’ll get tripped if the breaker isn’t powerful enough to bear this much power. So, ensure you don’t overload the circuit and use separate circuits instead.

Reset the Air Conditioner

If anything else isn’t working, try resetting your air conditioner. Glitches are a part of electric appliances, and they occur. It’s normal. Most of the time, simple resetting can solve the issue at your end.

To reset your GE air conditioner, follow these steps:

  1. Trace the reset button. In most GE appliances, it is placed near the power cord.

  3. Release the reset button and leave the unit for approximately 15 minutes.
  4. Now, turn ON the air conditioner and check the control panel.
