Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

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 would check the blades on the condenser fan motor and make sure they are not hitting anything if they are not, spin the fan see if the fan spin freely, it should, if it doesn't it could be the bearing in the motor are dry and going bad

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.

Can a Fujitsu compressor unit be connected to multiple inside evaporator units that have different tonnage ratings. 18,000 BTU compressor and 9,000 & 12,000 BTU evaporator units inside.


call fujitsu engineering division direct and ask them about what is connected and if it works ok
logically as each evaporator has it's own tx valve as long as the compressor is large enough to run all together it should work but get the right information from the fujitsu experts

You should check the fuses and breakers it might not be something that expensive, it could also be the controller for the outside unit that is bad. Google kllimare dealers and your zipcode.

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.

Need the BTU rating for an old Kenmore K948991 a/c


Your model number is not complete enough for a model check.
However, 18,000 btu in todays' units is what you need.

Ductless minisplit in old mobile home


ductless mini split units are a very good choice!  they are obviously quieter, more efficient and easier to maintain than window units. the downside is the initial expense of buying the unit, but this is paid back in eletric savings and peace of mind. Good luck Peyton

Soleus KFGHP-09-ID Mini Split


This is normal operation for these styles of minisplits. The thermostat is not in the remote but is located on the return air of the indoor coil, so the air needs to be flowing in order for the thermostat to measure the rooms temperature. Set your fan speed to auto and the fan will slow down when setpoint tempurature is met.
