SOURCE: Geckos cuase my airconditioning unit to seize up.

Place moth balls inside the unit: it acts as a gecko repellent. Just take care you do not place them in the airway as it may carry its smell. Also, when you visit a grocery store look in the pest control section you can find some sort of stickers which repel them.

What does 3 green led flashes in sequence, operation led off mean on Fujitsu ASTA09LCC aircond


This means a "Serial reverse transfer error during the operation"
Diagnosis:
When the indoor unit does not receive the signal for 10 consecutive seconds during the operation
>Permanent stop after 30seconds.
[Diagnosis Point]
Check the indoor /outdoor cable connection (in order). If the cable wiring is not abnormal, measure the voltage of the outdoor
unit terminals and diagnose the defective location.
(Refer to the after mentioned [Serial Signal Diagnosis] for the voltage measuring method and diagnosis method.)

This is generally caused by a faulty controller board in the outdoor unit. Often they are shorted out by geckos or bugs but sometimes a power surge.

What could be causing my HVAC secondary circuit to keep blowing a fuse after the AC Compressor ran for 10 hours?


Yes its a short. I've seen a weakening component cause that but 99% of the time its a short. Look where your control enter your o.d. unit. The wires can rub on the metal where the small hole is for the wires to go through. If your o.d. unit has any low voltage wires inside where the piping to the compressor are, look there. A low or high pressure switch may be installed and the low voltage wires inside can rub on a copper line causing an intermittent short. Look anywhere a low voltage wire can touch anything , other than intended points. If its a component then you may end up with new parts all over and still have a short. The control wires can get damaged by varmits in the attic, crawl space, and where the wires go through the wall or sophet. To isolate it may take a pile of fuses or a transformer with a micro-breaker can be installed. Basically has a 3-5amp micro breaker that trips and can be reset. If you were to remove all control wires leading to the o.d. unit, start the cooling, and it shorts then your short is not at o.d. unit. With o.d. control wires wired in at the ahu, disconnect the low voltage wires from the o.d unit. Cycle cool and if it shorts, the wire between is the cause. If it don't short, then you know its at the o.d. unit. At the o.d. unit, if it has any low voltage safeties(low pressure, high pressure, delay timer, ect...) you can maybe bypass all to allow the contactor to be the only component wired in the low voltage circuit at the o.d. unit. And if it shorts keep chasing it. Bugs and geckos can get behind circuit boards causing a short. Ants in any components can cause a short. Hard to help more from here. Above all, work safe!

Fujitsu reverse comms fault


Indoor and outdoor control boards are not communicating. Usually, the outdoor board is stuffed due to insects, geckos and the like.

Unit beeps several times and gives warning symbol does not start


I have a Mitsubishi air con that has broken down like this twice because gecko's have gotten in and shorted it out. We had to have the circuits replaced at $1000 a pop. I think it can short out after a lightning storm too.

What are the heating requirements for a leopard gecko?


Leopard geckos, like most reptiles and amphibians, do not produce their own body heat internally. An external heat source will help them with digestion. This type of lizard obtains heat from their undersides, so the best heat source would be an under tank one. You should look for a heating mat that will cover between 1/3-1/2 of the tanks surface. Try to keep the tank temperature between 84-88F.

Im looking to buy a bugaboo gecko hood but cant find one would the frog fit it


Not many Geckos in NZ and I've not worked on one but hoods are just held in place by canopy wires that insert into a clip on canopy holder. www.babycare.nl/spare-parts-bugaboo-cameleon-c-34_124_153.html shows the wires are the same for the Frog and Gecko so you should be fine,
