Customer Question
I have an error...

I have an error code on my panel board. three short blinks. What does this mean?

Contractor's Assistant: How old is the appliance? Have you gotten error messages before?

30+yrs. I have not serviced this unit before

Depends on what the issue is: bad capacitor or motor, then yes. Anything more complicated and ill call a tech
