Question about Heating & Cooling

2 Answers

Daikin a/c FDY100LVIR N81. installed in suspended ceiling approx 2 mtrs. away from ceiling filter inlet. No filter pad provided for this inlet?. Told to attach a piece of wire to end of unit to withdraw filter for cleaning, how do we get it back?. I find this situation unacceptable and have been trying to resolve problem with Daikin and installer for 3 months, now they are saying that the ceiling vent is an after market item so is not anyones responsibility. Thanks Trevor

By the sound of it looks like you have a filter on the unit but unreachable so that's why was told to attach wire to clean it out .Now when you clean it out how will you put it back in lol.
I would recommend the same as Thomas.
Is the ceiling filter inlet attached to any ductwork ? It have to ...well you can always measure the size and grab a filter grill and install .
Filter grill will have a cover similar to a door so you can open it and replaced and install your filter

Is this a new unit? Lots of units now come with no filter slot. I'm assuming this is above an acoustic tile ceiling. 24x48??? You need to have a 24×24 filter back return grill that lays in the ceiling. That way you change the filter by standing on a ladder. I'm a little confused about the wire thing but, the installer should have thought about how the return air was being filtered BUT, technically not their "responsibility." I'm guessing above the ceiling there is no duct attached to the return side of the unit??? If this were my unit I would buy a filter rack and have it attached to the unit and have my filters the unit. I'm assuming this is a business so what about your fresh air intake?? What filters that??? You need a filter AT THE UNIT. Not attached to a wire or whatever some i*^*t suggested. Hire professionals with credentials capable of doing the job right the first time!

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Your filter of the water inlet valve is accessible outside the machine; it is at the water entry point. Close your faucet & check this out; this gets clogged often.

Hope i am helpful...... Click on 'thanks for trying' if not helped, your prob will be back for someone else to solve.

SOURCE: Trying to replace 3 speed ceiling fan switch


The black goes to the L connection the others are a guess. You can do this two ways. Connect the colored wires in any sequence and then see what switch sequence give you high and lowest, the other one will be medium. Once you determine that, mark the wires with a piece of masking tape as high, medium and low. Otherwise you connect them, turn power on and use a multimeter to see which color gives you the highest voltage and which gives you lowest. Since you aren't comfortable using live wires and a meter, go with the first option and use the process of elimination to find the wires giving you the speeds you need to find the highest and lowest. Next, you need to determine how your switch sequence works. First pull has to give you highest speed. so you may end up wiring them in reverse if your first attempt is backwards. There is a reason the first pull needs to be highest, it powers up the motor so you can then chose a lower setting. A low setting first will over tax your motor and wear it out eventually as it has to work harder at first.

Let me know if you need further clarification and perhaps this is all you need to get fixed.

ps I checked on the Internet of a wiring diagram and I bet you did tok all to no avail.

I have daikin n81 air con, its showing f3 code on the control panel what dose this mean

f3 error is a bad thing, it means excessive compressor temperature in outdoor unit. Overheat condition outdoors. Please find a daikin factory authorized service tech in your area to come check it out. These units are awesome when they work, but when they don\'t, normal HVAC techs tend to not want to touch them. They will try to sell you something else. Or even worse, they want to vacuum and refill them for no obvious reason. A 200 dollar maybe fixit.

The daikin units work more like a tv or a car than the old school air conditioners. They have remote controls and service menus and scan tools and such. A veteran daikin tech can diagnose your system fast and give you a wise estimate of what you need. You may just have a leak, or there might actually be something mechanically wrong outdoors.

I would not push my luck and try to run the unit with this error code. Please don\'t let the magic smoke out of your system.

Light blinking

this is a fault code best to get a tech to look at unit

Blinkin light

Turn the main power to the unit off, leave off for about 20 seconds then turn back on. Unit should restart. The blinking light is a fault light that can be reset by turning main power off. Most times it will restart no problems but if the fault re occurs there is a problem with the unit itself. If the fan starts and runs for around 4 minutes on cooling mode then stops and blinks there is a problem with the outdoor unit.

Uneven cieling solution please

Use laser level to find level line around room.
Figure out how you are going to change ceiling lights as part of any plan.

1) Put furring strips across room 16" on center.
Use shims or spacers under furring strip at each nailing point to keep level.
Re-install ceiling electrical boxes to match new ceiling height.
Install new sheetrock.

2) Install suspended ceiling grid.
The cross grid is held with wires attached to old ceiling.
Plan for electric lighting by installing can light fixtures or drop in 2'x2' or 2'x4' fluorescent lights.

3) Float smooth, and prime ceiling.
Have artist paint cloud scene on ceiling to disguise unevenness.

How to replace front brake pads

  1. Remove 2/3 of the brake fluid from the master cylinder.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle.
  3. Mark (index) the relationship of the wheel to the hub.
  4. Remove the tire and wheel assembly. Install 2 wheel nuts in order to retain the rotor.
  5. In order to push the piston into the caliper bore and provide clearance between the pads and the rotor, complete the following steps:
5.1. Install a large C-clamp (2) over the top of the caliper housing (1) and against the back of the outboard pad. 5.2. Slowly tighten the C-clamp (2) until the piston pushes into the caliper bore enough to slide the caliper (1) off the rotor. 81007416

  1. Remove the caliper bolts (2).

  1. Remove the caliper (2) from the rotor and caliper bracket. Suspend the caliper from the strut using a wire hook (1).

  1. Remove the pads (2, 3) from the caliper bracket (5).
  2. Remove the 2 retainers (1) from the caliper bracket (5).

  1. Inspect the following parts for cuts, tears, or deterioration. Replace any damaged parts:
    • The bolt boots (1)
    • The piston boot (7)
  1. Inspect the caliper bolts for corrosion or damage. Use new parts, including bushings, when installing the caliper if any corrosion is found. Do not attempt to polish away corrosion.

IMPORTANT: Before installing new brake pads, wipe the outside surface of the caliper boot clean. Use denatured alcohol.


  1. Bottom the piston into the caliper bore. If installing new brake pads, use a C-clamp (2) in order to clamp the piston at the same time. Use a metal plate or wooden block across the face of the piston. Do not damage the piston or the caliper boot.

IMPORTANT: Lift the inner-edge caliper boot next to the piston. Press out any trapped air. The boot must lay flat below the level of the piston face.

  1. Install the 2 retainers to the caliper bracket.

IMPORTANT: The wear sensor is on the inside pad. The sensor is positioned at the leading edge (upward) of the pad during forward wheel rotation.

  1. Install the pads (5) to the caliper bracket (3).
NOTICE: Use care to avoid damaging pin boot when rotating caliper.

  1. Install the caliper (2) to the bracket (3).
NOTICE: Refer to Fastener Notice in Service Precautions.

  1. Install the caliper bolts (1).
    • Tighten the caliper bolts to 31 Nm (23 ft. lbs.) .
  1. Remove the wheel nuts securing the rotor to the hub.
  2. Install the tire and wheel assemblies. Align the index marks on the wheel and the hub.
  3. Lower the vehicle.
  4. Fill the master cylinder to the proper level with clean brake fluid.
  5. Apply approximately 778 N (175 lbs.) of force to the brake pedal 3 times in order to seat the pads.
  6. Burnish the pads and the rotors.
