Question about Mitsubishi MS-A09WA Split System Air Conditioner

6 Answers

I have had a mitsubishi split system HVAC installed in my 150m apartment. It is installed inside the apartment in a small space with one window for inflow a second window for out flow. As we test the unit, 3 problems have come to our attention. (1) When it was really cold outside last Janaury the unit itself was leaking something that turned into ice. There was a pool of about 2 inches of ice on the floor and the wall had a covering and the hoses were encased in ice. The installer maintains this is normal and has built a shower pan under the unit for the inevitable flood... (2) Despite repeated efforts, the system cannot "come to temperature" my installer has set it at the highest point (28c) and turned all 5 of the thermostats to that number and we have never succeeded in making the apartment that warm. (3) The unit is very noisy.

    it may be the case now, but it was not coming to temperature before the ice incident.

The problem is in your Ac's compressor .It is wasting all the cooling gases and chemicals
1)the ice you are seeing is the mixture of chemical & gases when get in contact with atmospheric air it converts into ice and pls dont touch that ice as it may harm your skin
2)you are not getting the temperature you want because of same compressor problem.
3)the noisy ness is because the ice is also getting stuck in your AC and it is creating problem.
i will recommend you to call a service personnel to get it repaired.
pls rate me
thankyou

If the unit lines were frozen, try removing all ice and leaving the unit off for few hours.

If there was a leak you need to ensure that freon is fully charged.

If the compressor has not enough gas loaded , the performance will be affected, and that can be the reason for your problem.

Hi!

The sound is coming becuase the sound proof felt covering the inner parts has been ruptured and you need to replace that felt for that sound issue.

I have had a mitsubishi - 34be574.jpg
Check if alll the hoses are fine, not broken due to deposition of ice on them. To open the outer unit---

And for the heat issues check for the pipes inside the panel(to access them outdoor unit needs to be opened)

Also, check for the internal connections inside the unit.I have had a mitsubishi - 86f291f.jpg /> 86f291f.jpg

Hi and welcome to Fixya,

You posted 3 issues:

  • leak that freezes to ice - likely water. The only possible source of water would be from the air itself. As cold air from the room is drawn into the unit, water molecules (gas form) accumulates and because of the heater turns to liquid form which then leaks down. The room (floor) has not heated up sufficiently hence the water that has leaked iced up. While condensation is normal, it is also designed that said 'leak' is meant to flow outside through a drain port/hose. Of course another possibility is for some mis-installation issue, the air-conditioner is simultaneously running with the heater;
  • insufficient heat - the basic design calls for a heater with a blower forcing cold air through it. The output would then be the warm air. After sufficient time, the unit would have warmed the air inside a closed environment. If the unit is not heating the room where its output blows, possibilities then are: the blower is drawing air from elsewhere and not from/circulating the pre-warmed air inside the room and/or the heater is cutting out early allowing insufficient time to fully warm the air. This could be due to clogged filter and/or the air pathway is incorrect;
  • noise level - the only possible sources of noise would be the fan blades hitting the shroud/bracket and/or the motor/compressor faulty rubber support, bothy mechanical issues which should have been addressed when the unit was installed. It is also possible that an erroneous level/installation could have contributed/caused the noise.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

What is hvac


Hi, Hvac that i know is (Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning) refers to technology of indoor or automotive environmental comfort. HVAC system design is a major subdiscipline of mechanical engineering, based on the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. Refrigeration is sometimes added to the field's abbreviation as HVAC&R or HVACR, or ventilating is dropped as in HACR (such as the designation of HACR-rated circuit breakers).

HVAC is important in the design of medium to large industrial and office buildings such as skyscrapers and in marine environments such as aquariums, where safe and healthy building conditions are regulated with temperature and humidity, as well as "fresh air" from outdoors.

Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning is based on inventions and discoveries made by Nikolay Lvov, Michael Faraday, Willis Carrier, Reuben Trane, James Joule, William Rankine, Sadi Carnot, and many others.

The invention of the components of HVAC systems went hand-in-hand with the industrial revolution, and new methods of modernization, higher efficiency, and system control are constantly introduced by companies and inventors all over the world. The three central functions of heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning are interrelated, providing thermal comfort, acceptable indoor air quality, within reasonable installation, operation, and maintenance costs. HVAC systems can provide ventilation, reduce air infiltration, and maintain pressure relationships between spaces. How air is delivered to, and removed from spaces is known as room air distribution.[1]

In modern buildings the design, installation, and control systems of these functions are integrated into one or more HVAC systems. For very small buildings, contractors normally "size" and select HVAC systems and equipment. For larger buildings, building services designers and engineers, such as mechanical, architectural, or building services engineers analyze, design, and specify the HVAC systems, and specialty mechanical contractors build and commission them. Building permits and code-compliance inspections of the installations are normally required for all sizes of buildings.[citation needed]

The HVAC industry is a worldwide enterprise, with career opportunities including operation and maintenance, system design and construction, equipment manufacturing and sales, and in education and research. The HVAC industry had been historically regulated by the manufacturers of HVAC equipment, but Regulating and Standards organizations such as HARDI, ASHRAE, SMACNA, ACCA, Uniform Mechanical Code, International Mechanical Code, and AMCA have been established to support the industry and encourage high standards and achievement.

This computer was the perfect size and weight for me. But I have reluctantly decided to return this to Costco becuase of the small 4GB C: drive filling up when windows is updated. I recommend that the operating system be put on the 8GB drive, or better yet, install a single 12GB drive.

Pool heater won't kick on


check the gas line pressure; (if this was a homeowner installation you will not be able to check the gas pressure) dirty filters are the number one cause of heater malfunction. before you do anything else break the filter apart and clean completely and recharge with diatomaceous if applicable. also check the pump baskets and make sure there is no debris in the basket or blocking the impeller inside the pump. if this doesn't solve your problem call pentair tehcnical support

Change operating system


This has become so easy over the years to the point you would not believe.

1. Right click on Computer and click on Manage.
2. Click on Disk Management
3. Right click on the drive you wan to split and hit shrink.
4. With the extra space format the space into a drive.
5. Place the windows XP cd in the drive and install XP (or your desired OS) to that drive.
5.5 If installing Ubtntu, just make one extra drive and let it split the drives up for you.

There is one last step. There is a possibility that after installing xp or linux that your Vista will not be in the boot manager.

6. Pop in the windows vista cd, boot the pc off the cd, After the cd boots up click on the fix button. The fix utility will take care of the system files that enable you to choose which os to load when the pc is turned on.

6.5 You may also want to install a boot manger. No need to pay for one, all of the free ones work if they are on download.com
