Re: Air con

Could be the thermostat or the low voltage line to the outside. Usually a dog chews through it or the weedeater hits it and breaks connection. Turn on cool, go outside and see if it gets 24 volts to the two wires going to contactor (have to take off cover to get to it) DO NOT TOUCH THE CONTACTOR IT HAS 240 V AT ALL TIMES, unless disconnect is thrown, so turn it off. If you aren't getting anything, then it's either the low voltage wire broken somewhere or the thermostat malfunctioning. Make sure you turn off the inside unit before messing with thermostat or you will pop the transformer. If it pulls the contactor in, and you still aren't getting anything, then check for voltage on the load side of contactor (opposite from the inlet or lead side). If you are and you hear a hum from the compressor and the condensing fan motor is running, then it's your compressor. You'll have to remove the top cover to do the next step. Check to see if it when to ground by using a meter set on resistance and with the connector to the compressor removed, put one lead on one of the copper pipes going up to it and touch the other lead against any or all of the pinouts on the compressor. If you get a reading, it went to ground and you will need a new compressor or whole new condensing unit, depending on the age of the one you have now.

Fan doesnt work on heat cool ok

Often the fan will cycle on and off on the heat mode. A cold air prevention mode is often built into modern Ac units whereby the indoor fan wont turn on until the internal system pressure is up to a certain point and heat is available to pump into the room. If the system cant come up to pressure or temperature then possibly the system is low on gas. Place your hand on the large pipe leaving the outdoor unit, it should be HOT when the system is on heating mode and running. If not Hot, then it is low on gas.

Fijitsu wall mounted split system operation and timer lights are flashing, and the air con is not blowing cold air, only like fan operating even in cool mode.

This the common problem with all a/c holders. Without knowing the function of Timer on and Timer off, if it's pressed the unit will start only at setting time.

Please remove the battery from your remote and reset it. And then with use of your manual, set the timer if you need., otherwise normal function will be activated.

Hi there i have a delonghi one split system air con. unit cools good for a minute or so then starts to struggle blowing warmer air. i have noticed the condensor fan on the unit out side does not turn on....

Either the fan motor outside is bad or the run capacitor for it is bad. One quick way to tell, you just have to be really careful, when the compressor turns on get a long screwdriver and spin start the fan. If it starts turning then simply replace the start capacitor, which more than likely will look bloated. If it doesn't start then you need to replace the motor.

Centrex a/c keeps shutting off every 15 minutes ( split system)

To start, check your condencer fan and make sure the condenser is clean.After that you will need a technician with instruments. If the switching off is constant, after approx. every 15 could be switching off on high pressure.
