Try to disconnect the supply from circuit breaker for 10sec. and "on" again, if it doesn't work you need at qualified technician for that problem.

SOURCE: my split air con unit is leaking water from the unit in house

The things that you can check yourself are
is the indoor unit level?
Are the filters clean?
The area the water is draining to free of obstruction?
Is the drain actually draining?
----Get a cup of water and pour it over the indoor coil (please make sure the power is off first please) If the water does drain then it is prolly a bigger problem.

Prolly your unit is short of gas and need a refrigeration tech out to check. That it isnt ice-ing up but you would notice the performance drop.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: I am trying to regas a Panasonic CU-A24BKP5 split

OK, now we need to let the comopressor cool down if it is hot. Once it is cool, (that could take a while if it is so hot it tripped out on internal overload.) check for continuity between the compressor leads. If they show continuity between them hook the wires back up and turn it on, Check the amp draw at start up, and check the voltage to the compressor.


The compressor is bad If....
1) there is no continuity between the compressor leads.
2) if you have an amp draw but the compressor is still not pumping refridgerant.

If you do niot have voltage going to the compressor, then we will need to trace down the cuase for loss of power.

Where can I buy a regas kit for my split unit airconditioner I live on the Gold Coast


I've never heard of a regas kit for a split a/c system. You need a declaimer, a vacuum pump, the designated refrigerant, gauges, and a digital scale. Evacuate the system, when system holds a vacuum, look up amount of refrigerant and type from mfg. tag on unit of spec book. Add specified amout of refrigerant and your done. If noy familiar with pressure on gauges you can use an amp meter to ensure unit is not over charged or has a restriction which would cause higher discharge pressure and therefore high amperage. Best to call a tech. Cheaper and safer.,

How do I replace a outside central air conditioner


First you need to determine if it is a heat pump or straight cool condenser. The reason is the low voltage wiring is different. This is the correct way to install an outside unit.
1.Pad must be level and unit should be secured to withstand 140 mile uplift wind with tie down straps.
2. Make sure breaker size does not exceed max per data sticker on unit. The electrical whip should also be correct wiring size for breaker AMPS.
3. Remove the shard er core valve to prevent damage to it, protect king valve with wet cloth or thermal trap paste to avoid damage. Connect the liquid line small cooper pipe to unit by brazing. Then run through gauges Nitrogen at low psi to prevent shoot build up in line set, now start brazing the suction line large cooper pipe, once finished help cool with water cloth.Check visually for any missed spots and re braze. Once you are comfortable that braze is a good seal now it it pressure test time.
4. (The above procedure is assuming that the inside unit has already been installed correctly, including the line set to unit.)
Through gauges connect Nitrogen compressed gas tank and increase psi in the line set to 350 psi and let stand ten minutes. If pressure is still 350 on both gauges you have a good seal, release the nitrogen into the air and remove tank from hose. Once gauges read 0 psi on both sides high and low you can start the vacuum process. These pressures can differ per refrigerant ( R410A example).
5. Hook up the Vacuum pump to the middle hose from gauges making sure you have replaced the shard er core valve back into the ports.tighten all hoses to any connection on machine, gauges, and pump open gauges and turn on pump allow to run at lest 20 minutes or until you reach 100 microns in a vacuum.Shut, close gauges and shut off pump remove the hose from pump.connect this hose to refrigerant tank and purge to center hose at gauges ( minus) amount of purge.
6. Now you can open the king valve and let refrigerant flow out of the condenser into the line set and air handler otherwise you have to add the refrigerant, newer refrigerant has to be charged into unit in the liquid state not gas state. R410A older refrigerant can be charged in gas state R22.
7. Hook up electrical,breaker off check with volt meter, follow diagram on unit. Then hook up low voltage, for straight cool depends on t-stat and unit witch colors they use follow schematics. I have found that Goodman use blue as common and yellow for cool, make sure that the same colors are used in the air handler to provide the 24 volts to outside contact coil.
If this seams difficult, well it is unless you have the correct training incorrectly done can cause damage to unit and to personal health ..
8. Or call a professional HVAC tech.

Mini splits need to have the refrigerant weighed in. First, ( if the system is already empty ) pull a vacuum down to 500 microns. Second, add the amount of refrigerant listed on the mfg. tag. Hope this helps!

Hi, how to you add more freon to 9,000 btu fugitronic portable a/c? Thanks


From the condensing unit you can see two valves. Connect the blue hose to the bigger pipe sometimes marked "S" to the suction manifold gauge with the blue dial.The discharge valve "D" is the smaller pipe and connect it to the red hose going to the red dial gauge. After connecting the hoses respectively, open the blue handle of the manifold to release air from the blue hose and close it. The same thing should be done to the red handle valve of the manifold. Connect the yellow hose to your freon cylinder and slightly open the cylinder valve while connecting it to the middle of the gauge manifold. Now, there is no air from all hoses and you can start charging freon when the unit start running. Check suction pressure and the Rated Load Ampere of the unit

Hoi... We have a Condura split aircon of 1.5 hp. 12.000 Kj/hr -R22 The in- and outset unit needs cleaning and has to be disconnected from each other. Here's my question: After connecting again and...


Hi Frans! I'm Roger. I have never had to disconnect the Evaporator from the Condenser to clean them but here is your answer. Use the access valves on the liquid side of the condenser. After evacuating, let the vacuum pull liquid R22 into the liquid line access valve to about 80 gauge pounds and close your refrigerant port on the manifold. Start the unit and add GAS to the suction port to bring your pressure up. If you have a scroll type compressor you can add liquid to the suction port but add gas just to be safe. Exactly how much you add depends on the efficiency of the compressor and how cold you want the discharge air to be. Normally we shoot for 34 to 40 degree evaporator with 18 to 25 degree temperature drop across the coil. R22 at 34 degrees is 60.2 PSI (Pounds per square inch) on your compound gauge. That's normally blue and on the left side of the manifold. The gauge that's hooked to the suction line. 40 degrees is 68.6 PSI. The amount it will take depends on the size of the condenser and length of your line set. Watch the amp draw on the compressor while charging. The name tag will have an RLA or FLA number that is the normal operating amperage of the unit. Add gas on till the suction line is cold at the compressor, then wait 5 or 10 minutes for the system to stabilize. Adjust you pressure again and you should be done. Let me know if you need anything else and if so, be as specific as possible. Roger

I need wiring manual for goodman mini split.


outside unit L1 and L2 are load (input 240vac)
then you have control voltage, usually yellow and blue (24vac) this connects to some 18/2 thermostat wire which goes inside as white and red.

note: this unit may only need 24v control which is 2 wires from the inside unit and also 3 wires 2 hot 1 ground for line voltage.

STANDARD WIRING
on the inside unit you have green, white, blue and red control wires.

on your thermostat you have white, red, yellow and green

you run the wire from the outside unit to the inside unit. then run a 18/4 wire to the thermostat if wired and join the following wires.

inside unit thermostat outside unit
green------------------------green
white-------------------------white
red----------------------------red
blue-------------------------------------------------------blue
yellow--------------------yellow

Remove and relocate split air conditioner


The simplest way of explaining this is as per the following. On your outdoor compressor unit there should be two pipes, one smaller diameter [high pressure] and a larger diameter pipe [low pressure]. Turn your A/C on inside the house and then shut off the smaller diameter pipe. Run the unit for a around 3 to 4 minutes and then check if the cooling is reducing from the unit inside the house. When you feel room temperature air [not cool] being emitted from the indoor unit shut off the larger diameter pipe and turn off unit. Isolate electrics, disconnect A/C piping and immediately seal the piping with good quality tape to prevent egress of dirt. When re-installing a quick purge of gas is usually only required to clear the lines if they were sealed properly and kept clean. Ideally running a vacuum pump is recommended but if care was taken then it may not be needed, as in many of my installations.
