Actron ducted air conditioning goes on for a few minutes then turns off while cooling, a message on the controller says E 2 after a few minutes it starts again and the cycle repeats. I noticed the cooling fans in the unit outside aren't working while the unit is running.

Hi john my offer is to attend to diagnose issue and any minor repairs needed. It seems like that fault is something to do with sensor fault. Indoor or outdoor when would you like this looked at?

Depending on what model unit you have there is only two issues fault code E2 can be mate. 1 is your indoor coil sensor is out causing communication issues. 2 the unit is short on gas tripping pressure safety’s /possible faulty discharge sensor.

Hi Stephen,
Model number attached, unusual that the cooling fans weren't working while cooling.
Hi John, I’m unable to see the attachment you have posted. Not unusual for the outdoor unit to power off when either hi or low pressure safety’s are in fault. As the unit is doing this I’m leaning towards the unit being low on gas or the hi pressure switch in fault due to the unit requiring a maintenance clean.
