Nuetral through casing

I had a split system air con fitted 2 weeks ago - delonghi brand

It is working well both hot qand cold - however I got a very little nibbling from the outer casing screw when I touched it the other day and had an independent electricial take a look at it - he messures a 120 volt current through the casing screws.

how much of an issue is this? could it get worse ? will it possible cause the unit to fail in time? (I know there isnt a definitive answer - just an opinion im after)

Im just out of warrantee

There is a definitive answer. If tthe tester reads 120 volt current through the casing screws, then as already said by Keemothere is one of the power wires making contact. If read is 120V, probably the problem is on power supply or compressor contacts.

The unit as it is now, is unsafe, using it is an hazard, unplug power and do not use it until you have it fixed.

I posted on Keemo solution just because there is a safety issue regarding your case.

If your getting current to the casing it means that you have a live wire inside that is coming in contact, and i'm surprised that it has not tripped a circuit breaker. this is something to be taken seriously. if you have someone that knows how to work on things like a handyman have hime take the outer cover off the unit and find the pinched positive voltage wire. please rate this thanks

Have an LG split system air conditioner. No way to turn it on or off on system. Remote only and it is not working. Did this a week ago and changed batteries, took a while before new batteries worked as...

Before buying new one, try with this step. Remove batteries from your remote and reset it after 5 minutes. And also remove DC wires plugged to indoor sensor display, and after 5 minutes re set it again. Now start your unit. Sometimes it will work out. Thanks.

How far does a rennai 26 have to be from a air condition unit motor?

Distance from the flue to a mechanical air inlet for the Rinnai which has a fan assisted flue is one metre. I this is just the air con motor on a split system it is not really an inlet. However exhaust flue temperatures are hot so I would use the 1 metre rule in this case.

(Just for your reassurance i and I also used to teach gas fitting at the trade schools on occasions am a licensed gas fitter. Also worked for Rinnai for a few years)

Hi i have a lg split system air con model number lst243h-2 its nice and cold when i first turn on then its just like the fan is on its not cold at all

How long before it goes from cold to hot. The compressor could be not running and going out on overload. The condeser fan could have failed. Did you check the outdoor unit. Is it running? Is the fan running on the outdoor unit. It could be low on charge which would cause ice. Are you getting excessive condensation? Let me know and i can help you out more. Grab the large copper line outside that is insulated and tell me if it is cold. It should be cold like a Pepsi out of the fridge!

Air con runs for 5 mins then stops, unit outside still going

ok depending on what part of the world your in and the season . Winter: most split systems are designed around a set given temperature of operation , if this is a heating problem the what you are experiencing is the system going into deforest . bare in mind that those carrier splits are manufactured in china and are designed for about 35 deg C in summer and +5 in winter , anything out of this temp range will cause this , especially if it is running on freon 22 , in-which case it sounds like its short of gas to me . if its a new R410 a system , then check your filters and if they are clean and its still doing the same then it too is short , in each case a refrigeration mechanic is required.
