Unit keeps stopping when hot weather

I have a Mr.Slim in my shop in Hong Kong and whenever the outside temperature exceeds 30Deg C the unit keeps stopping and turning off automatically. I cannot restart the unit until it cools dowm later in the afternoon. I have had the unit cleaned and serviced but it continuously keeps stopping. The servicemen have no idea to why this is happening. Hope you can help so that we can pass on the fix to the next serviceman we get in. Thank you Kind Regards Dean

Hi, it's summer again and hot. Finally got someone with some brains to come and look at the airconditioner. I showed them your reply to what the problem may be and like magic, they re-gased the aircon and now it works perfectly. Thanks again Kind Regards Dean

Re: Unit keeps stopping when hot weather

Hi, I am not familiar with your particular unit but it sounds like the compressor is getting too hot which could be caused by being low on freon. The large refrigerant line should be cold and sweat all the way up to the compressor after it has been running for a while. If it does, the freon is ok. It could also be a dirty condenser coil, bad bearings in outside fan motor or bad capacitor on fan motor or compressor. Check for wires that are burned or have been getting too hot. There are other things with heat pumps that could cause it but they are unlikely to happen. You might also want to make sure the voltage and hz is right. The only thing I could find information on was the 110/220 60hz (60C) You may only have 50hz power there. Good Luck. Let me know if I have helped. kstfas

Normally, any a/c keeps off for long time in winter, there are chances to get gas become ice in compressor due to ambient temp. It/s advised to service the unit with warm water and then start the unit. Better call repairman to check amps whenever you restart the unit after long period.

It sounds like the condensate from the drain pan is not draining correctly! The drain tube from your Air Handler unit may be kinked or not properly installed. The condensate water from the unit should be drained outside at least.

My Mitsubhishi Mr. Slim MSZ-A17NA 1 is drippping water on the inside. I have turned it off for now. What should I do? We're in Mississippi and it is a hot day! thanks


Make sure the unit is leveled, there is a drain hose coming from rigt side of the unit goes through the wall to the outside and down, this hose is probably clogged up.

Go outside the house and look for it. there should be some tubing wrapped in insulation going up to the roof top and a drain hose coming down. You can try to unplugged it from the inside using a wire clothes hanger or you can blow air from the outside end into the unit, you only need a small blow and you can use a flexible funnel or a piece of garden hose and some tape to do it. if you are going to do this make sure to drain all water from unit using a towel to avoit splashing. This works all the time.

No heat generated from the inside unit in Misubishi Mr. Slim

If you do not have a windbaffle installed on the outside unit the unit may never come out of defrost in low ambient temperatures. Depending on the outside temperature it might be telling the pcb to stay in defrost to keep the compressor from slugging and being damaged.

Mr slim 12,000 btu 110 volt

Sounds to me like yo have dirty condenser coils (outside unit) After this runs and gets hot it loads the compressor because it can not release heat out of the condenser coil it also may have a restriction somewhere on the high side that could cause this maybe in a txv or in a line filter.

Hope this helps Ya
