You can use the “RESET” button, unplug your unit, or turn it off at the breaker to reset your Midea air conditioner.
Air conditioner owners sometimes experience issues with their air conditioners (AC) that can make these appliances seem inconvenient and frustrating.
However, resetting your Midea air conditioner can be a great way to fix some of these common problems. You can reset your air conditioner by pressing the “RESET” button, unplugging it, or turning the breaker off.
Common air conditioner problems
An air conditioner can be a real lifesaver on hot summer days, however, when your air conditioner does not work the way it is supposed to, this can turn into a very inconvenient and frustrating problem.
Some of the common problems that you may experience with your air conditioner include water and refrigerant leaks, strange odours, noises coming from the machine, or even weak airflow or electrical failures.
Fortunately, most of these problems can be prevented or fixed quite simply if necessary.
How to reset Midea air conditioner
Although these operational problems are not so common that they make air conditioners more trouble than they are worth, they do happen from time to time.
Fortunately, air conditioners are similar to all other machines in that simply resetting the system can work out and fix many of the bugs before you even have to do any intensive cleaning or repair work on the air conditioner.
In this same way, when you are experiencing an issue with your Midea air conditioner, whether this is an error code, continual operational issues, or just an unresponsive unit, your best course of action may be to reset the entire air conditioner.
In most cases, this will clear up any confusion or miscommunication within the unit itself, and your issues will be solved without you having to go through any additional time, effort or expenses to try and troubleshoot to find or solve a problem with one of the components.
Most of the Midea window and portable air conditioners can be reset quite simply by pressing the “RESET” button on the plug of the power cord to the unit.
If your Midea air conditioner does not have this type of power cord with a reset button, you can also reset your air conditioner by unplugging it for a few minutes or switching it off at the breaker for a few minutes.
Regardless of which method you choose with which to reset your Midea air conditioner, the process is not complicated and you only need to complete a couple of steps for each method.
How to reset your Midea air conditioner with the “RESET” button
If you have a Midea window air conditioner or a portable air conditioner and you want to reset your unit, you should first take a careful look at the plug portion of the power cord on your air conditioner.
If this plug has two buttons on it, with one labelled “RESET” and the other one “TEST”, you can reset you unit by pressing this button.
Firstly, it is important that you ensure that the plug is green if your unit has one. If this light is not turned on, resetting your unit will not work, because it means that no power is being delivered to the air conditioner.
If the light is green, you simply need to press and hold the “RESET” button until you hear it click. This resets your Midea air conditioner and it will hopefully get it working again.
How to reset your Midea air conditioner with its power supply
If you have one of the Midea air conditioner models that does not plug into an outlet or that does not have a “RESET” button on the power cord, then you can also try to reset your air conditioner by unplugging it from its power supply.
This works in much the same way as turning the breaker switch off, and it only requires that you switch off the unit and unplug it for a few minutes, before plugging it back in and turning it back on.
How to reset your Midea air conditioner by turning off the breaker switch
Another way that you can reset your Midea air conditioner, if it does not have a reset button and you do not want to unplug it, is by switching the unit off at the breaker switch.
To do this, you need to find the breaker switch in your electrical panel that is labelled “air conditioner” and turn it off.
You can leave the breaker switch off for up to 30 minutes before you turn it back on and this should completely reset your air conditioner.
