"OD UNIT COMM FAULT" most likely means that there is no 24V voltage to feed the inverter control board in the outside unit and it can no longer communicate with the indoor unit. You would need to check for 24V at the terminals of the outside unit's contactor and this is really a task better left for an HVAC professional because it requires opening of the outdoor unit.
The error can also me caused by a fault in the five-wire low voltage control cable that's going from the indoor unit to the outdoor. A bad connection of the ground wire (usually the green wire in the cable) can lead to intermittent and hard-to-explain communication errors.
The inverter circuit board itself can be at fault. They are reportedly sensitive to voltage spikes and may require a "reboot" after a power spike, such as one caused my lighting. You can try to do this yourself by turning the AC off, waiting for the outside unit to shut down and then turning the power to the air handler/furnace off at the breaker panel, waiting 20 seconds and turning it back on. The idea is to cycle the 24V power to restart the control board. Unfortunately, in some cases the transformer feeding 24V is not connected to the same circuit and won't turn off when you shut down the A/C+furnace.
I would try the power cycle trick first and if that didn't clear the issue, call a Nordyne (the original manufacturer of the IQ Drive Split System Air Conditioners under Frigidaire, Maytag, Tappan and other brand names) IQ Drive - certified technician.
