3 split units run from one compressor one is not cooling


If there is 3 indoor units from one condensing unit
(6 pipes at outdoor unit) this is classed as a multi unit

All units will run correctly as long as they all require same mode, cooling or heating, if one unit decides to heat it will shut down until master unit decides to heat then it will start, for each unit to individually heat and cool there would have to be 3 pipes to each indoor,

Look, if you select a temperature above ambient temperature, it will switch from cooling to heating.(assuming that the aircon has a heat pump. most do these days.) Just dont rush the aircon because every time you make a setting change, it takes a while to regulate.

Outdoor fan is running continuously without using Wireless Remote Controller


Bad control board on the condensing unit up top. The board needs to be replaced as it is sending the message that the system is calling for cooling/heating all the time and doesnt know what to do. If you continue to let it run this way you will ed up having more major issues

Split unit, I get heat but no cold


I have run into this with the LG brand systems. try shutting power off to the outdoor unit to reset all units. If problem persists, it could have to do with a charge level of refrigerant (freon) or possibly a failed control board.
