E1 is a communication fault. On a 30 amp service you can exceed the available power pretty quickly. Which thermostat do you have? And when you use an adapter, you lose about half of your AC service. Get back to me with this information and I can help you sort this out. A small digital multimeter is very helpful for this sort of thing. About $20 or so at most hardware stores and easy to use.
