This is a communication error between the indoor and outdoor units

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
How do I fix it?
Expert:  WCohn replied 1 month ago.

Your phone request was denied by the system. Try shutting off all breakers for the system waiting 30 seconds and turning back on. Also check all connections

How'd that work out??

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I assume that E1 means that the indoor unit and the outdoor unit are not communicating. What would cause that if it had been running properly before? Jim

A bad connection or a bad circuit board

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I've checked connections...they seem to be good. How do I check circuit board?
Expert:  WCohn replied 1 month ago.

You can't without knowing all the parameters for all connections. What about the cable between the two units? Any rodent damage or any other cuts or kinks?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Haven't seen any will look specifically in am for that and be back in touch
