Whirlpool mini split

AC equipment 18,000 BTU/HR JUST BOUGHT IN AUGUST THIS YEAR MEXICAN CATALOG NUMBER WA4111Q, IT WAS RATHER NOISY WORKING IN COOLING MODE, BUT NOW IM USING IT FOR HEATING AND THE NOISE LEVEL IS UNNACEPTABLE. I JUST CHECKED IT AND PRODUCES ALMOST 40 DB, WHICH DOESNT ALLOW ME TO SLEEP COMFORTABLE. THE EQUIPMENT ITS PERFECTABLE FIXED TO THE WALL, THE NOISE (At lower speed) COMES FROM INSIDE THE EVAPORATOR( now working as heat pump)AND IT SEEMS TO BE GENERATED BY THE FAN.PLEASE GIVE ME AN ADVISE WHAT COULD BE DONE TO SOLVE THIS MATTER. I PAYED MORE FOR THIS EQUIPMENT ( COMPARED WHITH LG OR SAMSUNG) CAUSE THE WHIRLPOOL BRAND HASBA GOOD FAME IN MEXICO, BUT SEEMS TO BE THAT ITS WRONG. THE OLD LG AC, THE SAME CAPACITY THAT I HAVE IN OTHER ROM IN MY HOUSE PRODUCES A NOISE LEVEL OF 31 DECIBELS ONLY. REGARDS I HOPE YOU CAN GIVE ME A TIP OR ANY IDEA FOR SOLVING THIS MATTER.

Peek inside the opening on the front of the inside unit. You should be able to see the blower assembly/fan blades. See if any of them blades are cracked, warped, or debris on them. If seen these minisplits mildew on those blades also, which will cause it to be off balance. If you move the fan to different speeds does the sound change? If its down that since day 1, its probably a defect. Hope this helps!

I think you keep in Auto mode. If in Auto mode, you can't change fan speed. Keep in cool/heat mode and then press fan button in remote to select desired speed.

SOURCE: please advise heating/cooling capacity for carrier

Hello rgar919,

It is imposible to tell you the capacity of the unit without some kind of numbers to find out what it is. They made more than one unit 25 years ago. The numbers off the compressor may help to find the size of the unit. Please try and find some sort of model or serial number, compressor number, fan motor number something that can be cross referenced.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.

I have a Hampton Bay AC. It is 18,000 BTU. It is 230 volts. The EER is 9.7 and it is 8.3 to 9 amps. When I use energy mode on the AC it blows warm air. What gives? Just cool mode and it blows cool.


Hi Paul,
  • Energy Saver Mode most likely shutdown the compressor and Fan Only will be running to recirculate Ambient air into the room.
  • Make sure there is no Port or Vent that is open on your unit and would let hot air from outside be mixed in with the ambient air especially if it is hot outside.
  • Also refer to the troubleshooting section of your owner's manual.
Good Luck,
JP

What is the measurement of ton on ac units.


Ton is a measure of cooling only when buildings were cooled by ice and how many tons of ice they would use in 24 hours.
British Thermal Units (BTU's) is also a measure of cooling as well as heating in 1 hour.
1 ton equals 12,000 BTU/hr and 1 watt equals to 3.41214 BTU/hr.

I need one split ac for my bedroom. i use ac for 5 hours a day. shpould i buy a 5 start rated panasonic ac for Rs 28000 or a 2 start panasonic ac for rs 18,000. how much electricity i will save in a year


A more relevant question is what size Ac do you need to do the job correctly. A unit too small will run too long, consume more power and not cool the house effectively, so in my opinion a complete waste of money. I suggest that you ask a local contractor or equipment supplier for a equipment sizing guide. If that is not available, perhaps obtain a number of quotes for the area that you wish to air-condition and then take an average sizing from those quotes. regards Col R digitalcontrols.com.au

AC was cooling fine. Now, won't cool room even though cool air comes out. Exhaust hose is extremely hot.


Check filter, if you have a 5000BTU unit (small) and it is extremely hot, then it wont work great for a big room. BTU is the rate of what the AC will put out. 5000 BTU is good for a small single room. 10,000 will cool a bigger room and 18,000 btu is meant to cool a home.

Frigidare window air conditioner with remote control about 3 yrs old. All controls seem to be working except when the energy saver mode is suppose to shut down the unit / the display goes dark but the...


Hello, I can assist you.

If the unit is supposed to turn off and it doesn't, it will be necessary to check several things.


  • First, is the unit cooling properly? See the section entitled "The air is cool but doesn't seem cold enough."

  • Next, is the temperature of the room adequately cool? If the room temperature is cold enough try setting the thermostat to a higher temperature. If the unit then seems to work properly leave the thermostat set to the higher temperature.

  • If the unit is cooling properly when it is turned on and the room is not cool enough the problem is probably that the unit is trying to cool an area that is too large for its capacity. Use the following chart to find the appropriate size air conditioner to use:

AREA TO BE COOLED / CAPACITY (BTU/HR)

100 to 150 square feet = 5,000

150 to 250 square feet = 6,000

250 to 300 square feet = 7,000

300 to 350 square feet = 8,000

350 to 400 square feet = 9,000

400 to 450 square feet = 10,000

450 to 550 square feet = 12,000

550 to 700 square feet = 14,000

700 to 1000 square feet = 18,000

If the room is heavily shaded, reduce needed capacity by 10%

If the room receives a lot of direct sun, increase needed capacity by 10%

Add 600 Btu/Hr for each person in the room if there are more than two people

If the unit is for a kitchen, increase the capacity by 4,000-6,000 Btu/Hr.

If the room size is too big for the air conditioner you have two possible choices. Either decrease the room size by shutting some doors or partitioning off an area of the room. Or, increase the BTU of the air conditioner for that room by installing a different air conditioner with a higher BTU rating.

How large a room does a 10,000 btu air conditioner cool


What size unit do I need for my room? Use the following chart to find the appropriate size air conditioner to use:

AREA TO BE COOLED / CAPACITY (BTU/HR)

100 to 150 square feet = 5,000

150 to 250 square feet = 6,000

250 to 300 square feet = 7,000

300 to 350 square feet = 8,000

350 to 400 square feet = 9,000

400 to 450 square feet = 10,000

450 to 550 square feet = 12,000

550 to 700 square feet = 14,000

700 to 1000 square feet = 18,000

If the room is heavily shaded, reduce needed capacity by 10%

If the room receives a lot of direct sun, increase needed capacity by 10%

Add 600 Btu/Hr for each person in the room if there are more than two people

If the unit is for a kitchen, increase the capacity by 4,000-6,000 Btu/Hr.
