Question about Mitsubishi 9000 Btu Mr.slim Ductless Mini Split Air Conditioner Seer21 Cool Only

Open Question

Why do I have something that looks like tiny bits of gray sponge is falling from my A/C vents. I have vacuumed the vents but every morning I find these things on the floor. At first I thought they were moth wings & body parts but that is not the case. What are they and what do I do to fix this problem?

My cyclonic dirt devil vacuum sucks on the floor but when i use the wand to get debris it has no suction or very little suction


When my daughter complains of this I usually have to remove the flexible hose and rod it through as well as cleaning all the filters and any other vent or orifice.

Sometimes I have to take the thing to pieces and go back to basics.

I bought the big Idyllis -awesome;however, I purchased a second and it was possessed - makes woooo noises. exchanged it. Same thing. Smaller unit -loud. Would like another large with the wooooooo.


I used to use a damp papertowel and then an antiseptic wipe or spray a tiny bit of windex on a second paper towels and wipe each bar individually lts just a pain and a bit scary. this way it should be left to dry for hours. the dust is connecting the ionic filter the metallic bars that look like the bottom of a DVD are statically connecting creating the pop noise a shaking or rattling noise means it probably wet.
I got a trick use a microfiber towel to wipe the majority of the filters filmy residue. then grab a screen cleaner used for a tablet I pod or a cell phone. once the icky sticky collection on the ionic filters metallic bars. the cell screen cleaner. should make all the metallic parts oil and dust free. and they can be used over and over again. a microfiber towel just needs to be rinsed by hand afterwards if it's dirty it's fine it's just used so that there's no papertowel remnance. a glasses lense cleaner should just get the oils off afterwards cause that will make it so it won't attract dust quicker which is how it shakes wen wet. Basically tiny dampness attracts dust creating a clumping which makes it unbalanced so then the shaking or rattling. u gotta start over again. those are two ways.
now afterward take a deep breath plug it in hold the button down for 3 to 5 seconds. This should reset the switch to normal and then press it again to turn it on. it should only have a tiny breese. My dad would say that it's broken but it's for allergens and free flowing dust. So have it a foot off the ground and usually near a light switch cause they never have furniture there also all switches are out of the way cause usually the first thing you need to see is light which is why ur hand reaches not ur feet as if u would kick first to find a couch. if you have it by the couch or chair it my seem plesent till it falls. all purifiers r the same an ion charge stimulates low electricity attracting fibers or dust as a balloon gathering static electricity. the best purifiers to have are the water filtering purifiers no problems there just change the water once a week. well I hope you got some knowledge of helping you understand how and why they do as they do. most people end up giving them away.

Hoover Tempo Widepath: It appears the height adjuster may not be working correctly; while pulling the vacuum toward me the brush skips across the carpet now displaying a diagonal pattern in doing so. I...


Check height adjuster first to make sure that it is still functional. If the brush is too low to rug, it can cause some skipping as you pull the vac. to you. Have you tried to vacuum at a different angle to see if skipping stops? If your height adjuster checks out okay, it could be that your rugs may need a good steam cleaning. I have two dogs, and after awhile, the oil residue from there dander collects in the rug which is unavoidable after a long period of time with regular vacuuming. The carpet starts to mat and that's when I experienced my vacuum cleaner starting to skip. After a good professional steam cleaning of the carpets were performed, the vacuum cleaner stopped skipping. Hope this was informational.

My honeywell electronic air cleaner snaps all the time


Just had the "snapping" problem over the last 5 weeks. First try was to wash the cells in the normal fashion. when the snapping started again in a week I washed the cells in the dishwasher. They began snapping again in a week or less so I removed the cells and made a very close inspection of them. Using a very bright light I noticed the wires had a very uniform coating of something light gray in color. I picked at that coating with my finger nails and it came off to reveal the BARE wire underneath, Ah Ha, that coating was NOT supposed to be there ALL the time. So, CAREFULLY using my fingernails and a bit of wooden stick I scratched off that coating on all of the wires (it goes all round the wire) to reveal the bare wire and now it works with out snapping. Those wires can be broken if you are not careful. They can be replaced but that's just more hassle than being careful.
Good Luck, be careful, it can be done by the homeowner (and should be done too).

Continuous snapping is not normal .Remove both electronic cells. Make sure that there is no hair, dirt, sand or any debris on the bottom inside the Electronic air cleaner. If there is, remove what you can by hand. If a lot of debris is left in bottom of the Air Cleaner, you may want to use a vacuum attachment to see if you can vacuum up what you can.

Need To Eliminate Mystery Odor that Causes Alergy Like Problems


John,

"Smokey-acidic" - are you the original owner, and can verify no fires, etc? (People don't always tell the truth when they sell a house).

In my own experience, allergen control is a two-part job
1. Using a purifier/ionizer to oxidize odors and electrostatically sweep particulates from the air (like a magnet in a box of loose hardware - clump the micro-particles that normally float on air currents together so they "fall-out", to be swept, vacuumed or filtered by step #2. My experience is with the EcoQuest purifiers, and I like the ones with needle-point ionizers. I don't have a lot of experience on the RCI technology, can't comment on it. New EQ purifiers run ~$700-1000 USD, depending on capacity; you can probably find used units (older models) on eBay or craigslist for much less, but you'll be doing your own service unless you know a dealer or handyman who will do repairs for you. (and this can get pricey in a hurry too).

2. Use an ultra-high-filtration vacuum cleaner (or a whole-house unit that vents outside/downwind from your house) to remove the "fall-out" and embedded dust/dander/other accumulated crud from upholstered furniture and carpeting. I don't know what kind of "carpet cleaning" you used - some systems just pump hot water into the mud and microbes already in the base of the carpet, **** some of it out, but leave a layer of now-moistened crud in the bottom to grow stuff that you may be reacting to. Some use steam, which is better (kills more of the cooties instead of simply re-hydrating them), others use chemical powders to adsorb dirt and then get vacuumed-out. Just understand, unless the size of the dirt being vacuumed is big enough to be strained-out by the filter media, you'll be inhaling it again when it comes out the back of the vacuum-cleaner, so the really-tiny stuff goes through regardless, which is why you want an ionizer that will clump the little stuff together (and increase the effectiveness of your filter media). Having an external (outside the living space) exhaust on the vacuum would be even better, but probably more spendy and less convenient to routine housekeeping.

Quit working blinking light above settings knob


These things may not SEEM to move air, but they do - slowly and steadily purifying the air and adding a negative ion charge to the air which helps the dirt in the air fall down and be captured during vacuum cleaning, sweeping, etc.

A piece of regular size paper was inside the vent in our attic


Hi mattjules108,

If I understand correctly, this paper went down a hot air supply duct (i.e. the filter was over the outlet? - if not, correct me). If your ductwork is metal (as it is in most residential construction), it wouldn't matter if that single piece of paper caught fire (unless your ducts are so dirty that there's more fuel than just the paper there) - - if it did, it would only smoke-up your interior a little, the metal ducting should preclude a fire hazard. If you have your ducts cleaned you will probably be able to retrieve it. For that matter, a long vacuum hose inserted down the duct would likely retrieve it along with anything else down there that you don't know about from the previous occupants (kids toys, papers, whatever.

If you write back with more details, I may be able to offer more precise guidance.

If I can be of further assistance, or if you have questions, please let me know before rating me.
