Just bought 9.5kw reverse cycle/split off ebay, and I have to pick it up. The seller said we have to de-gas it and remove ourselves, can we do this, or do we need a air conditioner specialist?

To remove the refrigerant safely and legally requires special equipment that only a professional would have. I would recommend hiring a pro to disconnect and reconnect the system or you may very well have wasted your money. Good luck and I hope this helps. Please don't forget to give me a Fixya rating.

Is Conia air conditioner CA24001 split system reverse cycle I cannot get heat?

Sounds like either bad reversing valve or to get you going during the summer someone may have wired it to stay energized all the time which would have been a thermostat problem.

Unit shuts off completely after about 5 minutes. both coils are clean. cools well until it shuts off. will restart after approx 20 min. Low charge ?

This looks like a mini-split. If so, that sounds like it could be your issue, especially if everything is clean as you say. Specifications call for checking your charge levels every year. If it has been that long or longer, I'd definitely do that. Running low can damage the compressor.

However there could be another issue; Mini-splits (but not all) can have a de-humidify and a defrost cycle. A quick look up of the model says it does have a dehumidify ability. It's possible that the sensor has gone bad, and the unit tries to cycle the de-humidify or defrost cycle and it can not; or, there is a valve that switches the unit back and forth and the valve is stuck, so it might be a sensor for the valve which indicates it did not switch modes or it needs a recharge. Twenty minutes sounds about right to do a dehumidify cycle.

If it has a heat cycle, try that and see if it will switch to heat cycle, or just turn on dehumidify if it can do that, and see what it does. Either way, it will need a service call if you can't work on it yourself. If you know your stuff, you could try unplugging the unit and open it up to find the sensor and test it. I don't know the unit, so I can't point out where these are, but, they should be obvious, and have part numbers. If it's the valve not switching, you'll need a tech as the freon will need to be removed, the valve replaced, and then a vacuum pulled, and the freon replaced. For a 10k unit, depending upon cost of replacement it might not be worth the service call. You could call the manufacturer and only replace the bad half, if it's a mini-split, might cost about the same as a service call.

I hope this helps; but, if it does not, please comment (below your question) and add more information as you get it.

Was working fine until just not enough power to split log

Air conditioners usually cannot split logs very well. They are better at cooling instead of splitting wood. If you have a wood splitter and picked AC by mistake then I would check the hydraulic fluid level, grease the slide that the splitter wedge runs on. Then change the oil in the engine and clean the airfilter or replace it. Also make sure you use fresh gas and not old gas. gas goes bad after sitting a few months.

I have a Bonaire split aircondition & heating system. When I use remote controll change mode doesn't work heating mode. Other mode are working properly but heating mode doesn't work.

check the ambient temperature as there is most probably a lock out feature that will not allow reverse cycle to work if the system cannot remove the cold from the evaporator
To understand the system , when in cool mode the outside unit is called the condenser and in effect removes the heat trapped by the evaporating gas in the evaporator to the atmosphere
in the heating mode the roles of the evaporator and the condenser are reversed so that the evaporation of the gas in the now evaporator out side is now compressed in the inside unit and the heat from that compression action is released into the room
read the manual for the unit or talk to an ac specialist and have it explained

contact shops that install units and get quotes. retailers generally have contractors that will give quotes for installation on new units.

Fujitsu reverse cycle split wont blow cold

same as car aircon, but uses different kinds of freon. check first the thermostat setting, may be it set too high. set it to 20'c. if still not cooling, check wiring on ACCU, check capacitor too.
