We have a panasonic ac inverter, i dont know the model #,

Customer Question

Hi, we have a panasonic ac inverter, i dont know the model #, but the unit has stopped working and the red timer light is flashing. I switched the circuit breaker and it went off, when i tried to turn the unit back on with the remote timer light came back on flashing. Remote is communicating, but the unit wont turn on except for this light
JA: Did you double-check the thermostat? And what about the unit's filters?
Customer: How do i do that. Sorry we just moved in and ive never seen a unit like this. The filters were removed, cleaned (inside) before we moved in. Where can i find the thermostat.... this unit only has a remote
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: I wanted to see if it was something simple before making the landlord call a tech
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Not sure how else to explain. We are in a condo and this unit has a box on the roof. It usually blows cool and when its confortable in the room it turns off. This light never flashes and we woke to the system off, light flashing.

Hello, this is nothing that you can handle yourself, let the land lord handle it... the problems are most commonly in the complex electronics of the unit.
