General Electric, or GE, has a wide range of air conditioners from the small, portable models, to the mini-split and window air conditioner. These GE air conditioner models may experience problems from time to time. When this happens, the AC unit should present an error code on its LED screen.

These error codes may be coupled with a sound coming from your unit, such as a GE air conditioner beeping noise, as the air conditioner informs you of a problem with your unit. Knowing the meaning behind these error codes will help with the troubleshooting process. If your GE air conditioner buttons are not working, however, you may need to call a technician.
