Re: touch pad on

It is more than likely the touch pad that is faulty. I have installed many bonaires, and the only thing to go wrong at that age is the touch pad, or the problem is in the control box in the airconditioner.

The touch pad comes off quite easily by placing something flat behind the pannel and leavering it off gently. The touchpad has two pieces, the front, which you see, and the mounting bracket. The bracket is almost as big as the front pannel, so you only have approx 2-3mm of plastic edge to lever, so be careful not to hook onto the mounting bracket as well.

Once you have removed the front, you can then unplug the lead coming from the touch pad (be sure to turn the control box off in the airconditioner before removing this wire, there is a switch on the side of the control box (yes, you have to get on the roof, sorry)). Take the touch pad to your local retailer that sells Bonaire units and see if that is the problem.

I have a bonaire evaporative cooling system and its on but no air blowing out and the unit is filling with water the ducts are half wet but not really soaked  

i think this is the one that has a moisture sensor in the pads, if they don't get wet the fan won't blow, try manually wetting pads to see if fan comes on, if it does, find out why the pads are't getting wet i.e.something plugged

We have a Vulcan Bonaire evaporative cooling unit and all is working well but water constantly leaks...wasteful. second last bloke I got to have a look at it didn't want to go on the roof...the last one...

could be the float valve is stuck or has some object blocking it so it cant cut off the water flow..( adjusting the float hight, or cleaning will solve this) or could be the plastic inserts that carry the pads are cracked & allowing water to escape the unit.( replace the pad carrier)..

If your going up on the roof to fix it... you may as well get a onedose cartridge from the hardware shop & put that in the tank whilest your up there...

Ive got a mildewy smell coming from my evaporative cooler how do i get rid of it?

This unit needs to be serviced. Try replacing the pads with the sponge like pads.Drain the old water and clean up the pan and pump area. Go down to a pool supply store and buy some chlorine tablets and add to the water. In fact, they make these tablets just for the evaporator units. There are 3 states to water, solid, liquid and gas,
. This will get rid of the smell.

Will not turn on after a blackout

Turn off your breakers and then back on. There are fuses located in the a/c control panel. Check them. If you aren't getting any power still, a board may have been blown during the storm.

Bonaire Cooling system that stopped working after power failure..

Unplug the unit or turn off the breaker to the unit for at least 30 seconds. If this reset does not work, the electronics may be damaged and need a repair person.
