IT WORKS BUT AT THE CYCLE END SUPPLY COLD AIR IS IT NORMAL?


Most air cons now have temperature sensors all over the machine. When it reaches temp on heat cycle, the machine usually shuts down both indoor and outdoor units but the indoor unit will keep running for a few minutes with the fan on only to cool the indoor unit down. This prevents the unit reading the wrong temperature. It stops the sensor(s) reading the heat from the indoor unit rather than the heat in the air in the room.

Is the heat pump cooling itself down? It is a combination heat pump/air conditioner wall unit.


If a unit is in heating mode the outdoor unit is in cooling mode (outside always does opposite of indoor) after a while if there is a build up of ice on outdoor coil unit stops and puts hot gas through outdoor coil to clear it. The indoor fan stops to avoid and heat loss in area served buy unit once this has been done and indoor unit coil is hot again fan will start. This is the correct operation of the unit to save against bust could and reduced efficiency

You have to try resetting the system. First turn the breaker off for the condenser and wait about 20 seconds. After you turn it back on the system should reset.

Make sure the indoor filters are clean. The outside unit will continue to run until the indoor reaches the temperature you have selected. Dirty filters can throw the temperature out. Its common for outdoor units to freeze up when on heating mode if the ambient air temperature is below 5 degrees Celcius.. The machine should however, defrost itself. There could be a problem with one of the pipe or air sensors on the outdoor unit.

Misubishi split a c 2 tons green light blinking problems


Please write how many times blinking and with an interval. Depends upon it, we can give solution.

Normally, blinking 5 times means for drain motor malfunctioning. Check drainline, oif blocked clean it. If drain motor not working, replace it.
If blinking 2 times, Indoor room air thermistor defective replace.

Thanks.

My aircon unit turns on runs for a minute then indoor and outdoor unit switch off


If this is a LG Airconditioning unit.
It has reached the set parmeter of the safety switch point.
1 The unit could be running on too low refrigerant charge and cuts out on low temperature on the indoor unit coil (-5°C longer that 30sec switch off)
2 The unit might be drawing to much current, to much refrigerant, cutting out on high pressure.

Check the refrigerant charge and check the indoor pipe temperature thermister (calibrated at 5kΩ @ 25°C)
