You are running the temp too low and the AC is not cycling like it should.
That is icing up your coils.

The E6 is telling you it has shut down your compressor so the ice can clear off the coils.

Tip: Always set your thermostat to 10 degrees BELOW outside air temp (OAT) up to 100 degrees OAT (90 inside).

This will allow the AC to cycle (turn on and off) to dehumidify and cool the dryer air.

I had just turned on for the first time this year and with in a few seconds the error message came in. Would the coils ice up the fast? I many had it on as it had been a while since I had the "genie" up and running...

The other possibility is "open circuit" (what happens to the sensor when it ices up). A rodent could have bitten through a wire.

Update on this...
Going to bring our unit home tomorrow and see if the AC works when plugged into shore power...thinking maybe there's an issue with power from the generator...
After letting the unit sit 2 days,tried it again and as soon as it started the E6 message came on...
Have had an issue from day one with the way the genset was installed...wishing I never added to this unit!!! :-(

Do you know if your ac unit is also a dehumidifier? The e6 code is specific to the ac unit that is a combination dehumidifier. If you do have the dehumidify ac combo you probably have a bad humidity sensor. If not may be a bad thermostat.

We were going to put this type unit in our 33ik but opted for a heat pump instead.
